I can’t resist a Christmas gift set and the Too Faced Under The Christmas Tree set was one that I had to have. I always love Too Faced’s Christmas releases and they’ve done well this year.
With 3 palettes (one complexion and two eyeshadow), as well as a deluxe-sized Better Than Sex mascara, you certainly get a lot of bang for your buck. The packaging is adorable, with the palettes connecting magnetically to form the cutest pink Christmas tree (you can break the palettes apart easily) … it is a girly festive delight.
At the top of the tree, there is a 3 pan complexion palette consisting of a highlighter, a bronzer and a blush.
Angel Kisses Highlighter – champagne / peach shimmer
Winter Glow Bronzer – warm orange toned sheer matte
Christmas Flush Blush – warm peach shimmer
These are so gorgeous and great for adding some warmth to your complexion. I’ve found that you need quite a gentle touch with them as they’re more pigmented than I’d expected but they are easy to blend.
The middle palette in the tree is an eyeshadow palette with 8 exclusive shadows.
Vanilla Snow – warm cream matte
Christmas Wish – warm brown matte
Kiss For Santa – red toned brown with gold shimmer
Rockin’ Around – gold metallic
Dream It, Believe It – warm brown metallic
Christmas Morning – warm peach matte
Cozy Up To Christmas – warm orange metallic
Wishful Thinking – chocolate matte with gold glitter
The matte shades are a little bit dry, but still easy to work with but the shimmers are so buttery and pigmented. I’m a little bit in love.
At the bottom of the tree is the largest palette which consists of 10 exclusive eyeshadows.
Beard Of White – white matte
Winter Wonderland – pale pink with silver shimmer
Pleasant Dreams – chocolate brown matte
Dream Come True – taupe satin
Unicorns Pull My Sleigh – copper shimmer with silver
Oh What Fun – silver metallic
Wishes & Kisses – plum matte
Starlight – gold metallic
Fresh Cut & Frosty – deep green metallic with gold
Under The Mistletoe – dark brown matte
The colour selection of shadows in these palettes are just beautiful and enable you to create a wide variety of different looks. The quality is good, as you would expect from Too Faced and I can see these getting a lot of use over the festive season.
Finally, there’s a deluxe-sized Better Than Sex mascara. I love this mascara as it lifts, curls and separates the lashes beautifully.
I have short lashes but they always look so much longer after using this, so it’s a great addition to the set.
