One of my favourite beauty brands to watch around the holiday season has got to be Too Faced Cosmetics. Their holiday collection is always so on point, cute, and one of the best bangs for your buck.
I’ve received their holiday blockbuster set for the past four years and usually the whole collection revolves around a theme. Last year was Paris, a couple years before that the Sound of Music, and this year it’s New York. I mean, what could be more magical than Christmas in New York?!
From eyeshadow sets to stocking stuffers to gifts you can split up among friends, Too Faced has the cutest items for anyone’s holiday list.
Okay first up, have someone on your list you already have a gift for, but you want to throw in something extra but don’t know what? There are tons of little items that would make great present toppers or stocking stuffers this season.
There are a couple lip product ornaments, such as the Lip Injection Lip Plumper, which includes a deluxe size of this clear gloss which plumps up lips. There is also a deluxe-size Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ornament in Melted Berry, as well as a mini Better Than Sex mascara that you can choose from. All three retail for C$15 each.
A cute small gift that would be perfect for a friend is the Let it Glow Highlight and Blush Kit, which I’ve previously talked about in my top three highlighters for the season post last week. This set includes deluxe sizes of Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo in Rosy Glow, a Love Flush 16-Hour Blush in Love Hangover, a Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer, and the cutest mini kabuki brush.
Now if your list includes lots of friends then you’re in luck since Too Faced always kills it every year with sets that can be gifted as a whole or split up. Want your squad to get the same thing but in colours that match their skin tone? Then check out Naughty Kisses and Sweet Cheeks, which is a set that comes with three deluxe Lip Injection Glossy Lip Glosses and three coordinating Love Flush Blushes, all individually packaged and then housed in one box. Too Faced did something similar to this last year and I loved how I only had to pay one price and then split these guys up. This set retails for C$45, so that’s $15 for each duo.
Similar, but not individually packaged, the Merry Kissmas set has four deluxe tubes of their Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipsticks in original, chocolate, and matte formulas. You can either gift this set as a whole or split them up. This one is great since the Melted lip products are super popular and if you have a friend who has always wanted to try them, then this the perfect chance since you get the three formulas and a myriad of different shades.
Okay I saved the best one for last here. The Grande Hotel Cafe (C$62) is housed in a mini hotel box and opens up to reveal three coffee-scented eyeshadow palettes. This one is for the Starbucks lover as the palettes include peppermint mocha, gingerbread coffee and eggnog latte (yes, they do smell, and yes, it’s amazing).
Between the three there are 18 matte and shimmer eyeshadows, two coordinated blushes, and a bronzer. They even threw in a mini of the Better Than Sex mascara (which is one of my favourite mascaras by the way).
Too Faced did a similar set to this one last year and I think this makes an awesome gift as the packaging is adorable, the colours are showstopping, and it smells. If you really wanted as well, you could split this one up, however, it’s gorgeous to receive in the little hotel-inspired box.
For those who love the big blockbuster sets, Too Faced has come out with The Chocolate Shop, which comes with just about everything you would need to do an eye, cheek, and lip look (all you need is foundation and concealer). Although I didn’t receive this set this year, I have gotten it for the past four years and always found that it’s amazing value for the product you get. The one this year retails for C$72 and it has a value of C$347. Plus, there’s a dog on the packaging. Who wouldn’t want that for a gift? 😛
Are any Too Faced sets on your wish list this year?
