Hi Makeup Geeks!
Here’s another review of a new holiday palette- this one is the Too Faced “A Few of My Favorite Things”. I’m having a lot of fun reviewing all these for you all, and hopefully it helps you decide which palettes to get this year! Have fun shopping 🙂
This palette is made of sleek cardboard and is excellent quality- there were no defects and the palette has held up so far to my abuse! It folds open like a book to reveal 20 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, and 2 bronzers. The outside of the palette is pink and gold with white embossed letters- very girly yet classy! The palette also comes in a travel bag with the same design.
Included in this palette are 20 eyeshadows ranging in several colors and finishes. There are 5 matte finish shadows, and 15 metallic/shimmer shadows. Each eyeshadow in my opinion is amazing quality- very pigmented, smooth, and easy to blend! I really have no complaints at all about the eyeshadows as they are so smooth and creamy feeling.

Blushes & Bronzers
The blushes are very smooth in texture and super pigmented- a rare find for most “complete” palettes. The peach color “Melt into Spring” is my favorite as it’s a gorgeous matte finish that looks great on fair to medium skin. The bright pink blush “Raindrops on Roses” is a brighter color that would work best for medium to dark skin. The bronzer “Chocolate Soleil” is more matte finish and would work great for contouring fair skin or for warming up medium skin, and the shimmery bronzer “Sun Bunny” is great for adding a hint of bronze glow to the cheeks.
Where to Buy: (unfortunately Sephora just sold out, but you can find on Amazon)
I give this palette a big 2 thumbs up as the quality, packaging, and colors are amazing. This is one of my favorite palettes for 2013 🙂
