If anyone knows how to put together a mean palette, it is the people at Too Faced. They pack a ton of extremely wearable eye shadows, blushes and lip glosses into some incredibly petite palettes that are easy and fun to use. I got a very cute palette a few years ago as a gift and loved the heck out of it. It was great for travel and slim enough to carry around for touch-ups.
Unsurprisingly, Too Faced has some really adorable and appealing special palettes and gift sets out right now -- one of which is sure to please. Starting out small, the Glamour To Go III ($20) palette is a great value. Now in its third edition, this popular palette has everything a gal needs to get holiday gorgeous on the fly. This pocket-friendly set features eight shimmery shadows, four lip colors and one universally-flattering, peachy-pink blush. After your look is finished, it all folds up neatly to the size of an index card. Functional and fun -- what's not to love?
Next up is the French & Fabulous Palette ($29). Being a complete Francophile, I am a sucker for this thing based on the name and packaging alone (I did say "sucker" after all). Once my eyes fells upon the "Pink Leopard" Highlighting Bronzer, there was no question of my lust for this palette. Containing six eye shadows in charming neutrals (plus one bad-ass pink) and two gorgeous bronzers, this palette isn't completely all-inclusive, but is sure to please ladies looking for a sophisticated, but sexy, look.
On to the kits and holiday collections -- love them! Named with a suggestive and slightly scandalous name, the Walk of Shame ($38) kit is ready for action (if you know what I mean... *wink wink*). All contained within a very sweet ruffled clutch, this kit is ready for a spontaneous rendez-vous or a quick weekend getaway from the holiday stress. It is a self-contained set that will take you from hung-over to hot stuff in almost no time at all. Kit contains:
- Mini Primed & Poreless Face Primer (colorless)
- Exclusive Compact with Shadows/Bronzer
- Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer (colorless)
Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Totally Nude
- Too Faced Toothbrush
- Oral Fixation Mints
Who wouldn't love to try the royal treatment on for size? It's probably not going to happen for most of us, but Too Faced offers a small piece of that fantasy with the Queen for a Day Value Set ($45). I also admit to being a complete sucker for the Too Faced graphics -- the Marie Antoinette-rose garden motif on the clutch is just killing me with cuteness right now. This limited-edition collection is filled with some all-time favorite Too Faced products. Create luxe looks using winners like:
- Eyeshadow Quad (Exclusive!)
- Snow Bunny Bronzer (Winter Bronze)
- Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Free Love (Pale Pink)
- Shadow Insurance (Translucent Beige)
- Mini Lash Injection Pinpoint (Black)
- Flatbuki Brush
