Too Faced Christmas Collection Haul 2014 & Swatches - 'What Pretty Girls Are Made Of'

Hey everyone!

I had the pleasure of receiving the Christmas Too Faced Collection! Its called 'What Pretty Girls Are Made Of'. 

I thought I would do a quick blog post to show you everything and some swatches…. I'm sure a few things will pop up in videos too! 

Hope you enjoy! Let me know which of these items are on your Christmas wish list x

First up I'm going to talk a little bit about the 'Under The Mistletoe' 3pc Lipstick set!

Get ready to pucker up under the mistletoe and drench your lips in three shimmer versions of our best-selling Naked Dolly, Marshmallow Bunny and Spice Spice Baby La Crème Color Drenched Lip Creams. Indulge your pout with the luscious, moisturizing formula and pigment-rich, one-swipe color of these exclusive shades. The three sparkling La Crèmes come in a pretty to-go glitter bag, just the right size to slip into your Christmas clutch.


  • Three best-selling shades of La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream infused with a shimmer formula you can't find anywhere else
  • White Lotus Flower Extract provides lip conditioning benefits
  • Power Peptides help stimulate collagen and aid in the appearance of smoother lips
  • Pigment-saturated, one-swipe formula

When I first saw 'Sparkle' I instantly thought 'Frosty'. Thank goodness, the finish of these is absolutely beautiful! If anything, they look glossy and healthy once applied on your lips. I love all three shades!

L-R Shimmering Naked Dolly, Shimmering Marshmallow Bunny, Shimmering Spice Spice Baby.

I love how there are three completely different and wearable shades! I have to say Spice Spice Baby is a little more muted than the swatch is showing up. For some reason my camera amped up the saturation a bit Will have to sort that out haha

Also, the little bag they come in is adorable! I might use it as a coin purse in my handbag.

Next up is this box set, called Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses! 

Our delicious little palette of our full-face wearable favorites fulfills every last beauty wish. Create decadent eye looks with three antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder infused shadows from our best-selling Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, our matte Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and our luminous Snow Bunny Bronzer for a fresh glow. Finish the look with a pink glossy pout.


  • 3 Exclusive eye shadows from our best-selling Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection
  • Best-selling Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
  • Snow Bunny Luminous Bronzer
  • Exclusive preview of a deluxe version of our La Crème Lip Gloss in Naked Dolly

I was so hesitant when I saw this. I never find myself reaching for box sets, usually they just get super messy and don't have everything I need. This one, however, I love! It has three eyeshadow shades which are absolutely amazing, a lipgloss which is right up my alley, a bronzer that I already own and love, and a highlight/blush shade! This palette is so universal and absolutely perfect for travel. It does not lack in quality at all!

100% recommend this one! Check out those colors… amazing! And, the palette smells divine too! Mmmm *nesquik*

Next up is an Ulta Exclusive. If Ulta doesn't ship to your country, check out this link and the 'Assisted Purchase' option

This is called the Sugar & Spice palette and it is TO DIE FOR!

It comes with 12 high-pigment eye shadows with a built in mirror. It comes in a golden glitter bag and includes a Deluxe size Better Than Sex Mascara!

The colors are ideal for the neutral gal, and come in multiple shades perfect for day to night.  The actual palette is thin and lightweight! We have some matte shades, satin and shimmery in here!

Swatched shades are Champagne Truffle, Nutmeg, Biscotti, Sugared Violet, Cinnamon Sugar and Black Licorice. The only shade I had trouble with was the black, it needed a couple of layers. The rest were buttery, soft, amazingggg!

Next is a Sephora Exclusive. Same deal, if Sephora doesn't ship to your country, check out this link and the 'Assisted Purchase' option

This is the Everything Nice Palette! This years 'complete' palette has everything you need in terms of Eyeshadow, Blush and Bronzer, Mascara and Brushes!

This beauty also comes in a sparkling pink glitter bag, perfect as a makeup bag during the festive season! The colors in this palette are to die for - some neutrals mixed in with a healthy range of colour to play with as well. I am especially impressed with the range of face colors this year!

We get a delicious smelling chocolate bronzer, a pink blush, a peach blush and a soft pink shimmering highlighter!

We even get a few brushes, including this one which looks like a smaller version of the NARS Ita brush. Its super soft!

Colors are After Hours, Girly (MAC Club Dupe), Totally Fetch, Live It Up, Too Glam, Head Over Heels, Chocolate Moon and Mauvelous.

The pigmentation varies from shade to shade, but they are all smooth so I don't foresee any trouble once they are paired with a good primer or base. I especially love the neutral shades in this palette!

Last of all there is this amazing beauty! This is the La Belle Carousel! A+ for creative packaging!

Packaged in a carousel shaped design, you can take out each portion to reveal a palette, and a mascara! 

This beautiful carousel of eye shadows, blushes, bronzers and our best-selling Better Than Sex Mascara is created from six individual sections that split apart to create on-the-go looks or can be separately gifted to everyone on your list. 

Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino carefully curated the palette, each offering a different way to own your holiday look.


  • 3 Eye Shadow Palettes with a total of 12 shades
  • 2 Blush & Bronzer Palettes that include our best-selling Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and fan favorite Who's Your Poppy Blush
  • Our deluxe award-winning Better Than Sex Mascara

I love how each portion is small, and perfect for travel! Heres what each portion looks like

I am so impressed with the packaging and products in this years Christmas Collection! Will you be picking anything up?

  17. Just curious, if you could only have one eye palette which would you pick? I'm looking for an eye palette and am debating between a lot but can't afford to have too many.

  18. Awwh wait! You didn't get the melted liquid lipstick set? That's the one I'm most looking forward to swatches x

  19. The packaging is all so beautiful and the products look nice too.
    The problem with Christmas sets is I want them all for myself and I can see me buying them and 'forgetting' to give them away.

  20. These are so pretty too faced out did themselves. The fact it's limited edition makes me want it even more

  21. Such a gorgeous collection, they have done such an amazing job on the packaging! Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on some!
