Too Faced "A few of my Favorite Things" Holiday 2013 palette Review

Hello makeup lover!

Today I have an exciting post for you. I recently purchased  Too Faced "A few of my Favorite Things" palette set from Sephora and all I can say is wow!!! This palette is so freakin' awesome you guys. This set includes 20 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, 2 bronzers, a full size Lip Injection Color Bomb, and a deluxe size Better than Sex Mascara all for $56!!! I definitely think Too Faced did a great job on this. There is a good mixture of colors, finishes and textures. I personally think all eyeshadows have a great color payoff, which at times can be lacking in larger palettes like this one. I really love all the shades available and the color combinations are endless. This set makes an awesome holiday gift for that makeup lover in your life!!

I hope you enjoy the pictures and mini reviews below. There will be many holiday tutorials coming up soon on my beauty channel. Click here to see my current videos and to submit any video requests :)

            Outside packaging 
Cute pink & gold chevron clutch
Palette with deluxe size mascara
& Full size lip plumper
Better than Sex Mascara ----> clever name!
It applies nicely to lashes but I don't think it
gives me the volume and thickness I like. The formula
is a bit wet and is a rich black color.
Lip Injection Color Bomb in "Bee Sting" (full size)
Honestly, it's not my favorite lip plumper. It feels
uncomfortable to me. It definitely has a stinging feel on the
lips, which sadly is a turn off for me.
The actual color is a nice nude-y pink.
A look inside the palette with the extra pieces of this
kit to the left
Gorgeous eyeshadows!!!!
So in love with the color selection, the finishes, textures
& great color payoff.
A closer look at the blushes and bronzers. It's a good
mix of colors that can go with any eye look.
