Too Faced Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses Holiday 2014

Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses is another new holiday set by Too Faced Cosmetics ($34 USD Macys - Sephora - Too Faced Cosmetics - HSN). I LOVE IT, but some beauty bloggers are not as thrilled. NOT because it's not good, but because they already have ALL THE PRODUCTS IN THE SET. HaHaHa But for those that don't (like me), it's pretty DREAMY! It features three (3) eyeshadows from Too Faced's popular Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection - White Chocolate, Creme Brûlée and Haute Chocolate (see my review from earlier this year), Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Snow Bunny Bronzer and a SNEAK PEEK of Naked Dolly which is a La Creme Lip Gloss launching Spring 2015. Why do I love it? Three reasons!

1. It's simple and EVERYTHING is at your fingertips to create a beautiful look! I don't know about you, but large makeup palettes intimidate me (especially eye-shadows). I never know what colors to match with what. This smaller set makes things, SO much easier (and approachable). If it wasn't for the chocolate theme of Too Faced's Chocolate Bar eye-shadow palette I probably wouldn't have purchased it! This simplifies that process. I hope Too Faced makes MORE of these kind of kits in the future. It's small, concise and no-fuss.

2. You get to sample an assortment of Too Faced's best sellers! I've never tried Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil Bronzer or Snow Bunny Bronzer! I love BOTH of them and plan on buying full sizes of each. So this small kit, let me sample what I was curious about :). I'm a woman of color. I didn't think I would like or need a bronzer. By trying this, I've changed my mind.

3. Fabulous packaging! This comes in a really CUTE and FUNCTIONAL tin! The lid is hinged and opens & closes (SNAPS CLOSED) beautifully. Nothing will fall out! It has a glitzy, gold & glittery background (the gold stays put and DOES NOT get into the makeup). This will easily fit into a medium cosmetic case or your purse. Great for travel! You can take it with you!

Now, let me suggest two things if you purchase this. Use a light hand with the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. It's easy to go overboard and you will look sun burnt and not kissed if you apply too much. The "new" unreleased lip gloss starts off really good, however a couple of hours later it gets a little "gummy". You know! Like you're wiping the corners of your mouth. Lol I hate that. Must be something with the formula. To avoid this, re-apply every couple of hours.

Now some more good stuff about this palette! It has a light, but sweet chocolate scent. Once you use the eyeshadows, I SWEAR you will want to purchase Too Faced's Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette. Apply the Snow Bunny Bronzer wherever you want a kiss of frost on your face (it's perfect for winter and is a little different than a highlighter). Ok, that's my review! Sorry for the length, but I felt like I had to explain things. All I know is I felt like a "snow bunny" at a ski resort after applying it. HaHaHa All I needed was a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and a cabin in Aspen (strike that, hotel suite) HaHaHa! Have a great weekend everybody!

I used White Chocolate underneath my eyebrows and Creme Brulee on my eyelids. I did not use Haute Chocolate. I used Chocolate Soleil Bronzer all over my face (over my foundation). I applied Snow Bunny Bronzer on the tip & bridge of my nose and apples of my cheeks. Naked Dolly is on my lips. This set creates a beautiful neutral look. I'm loving brown and pink together.

Kim, with the special editions for holidays you are reviewing you make me feel already on holidays, yay! (Im counting down the days from summer!:P). Btw, I totally love this kit, since I love brown and pink together, is already onto my wishlist now, plus the packaging is so cute. Snow Bunny Bronzer is the one inspires me most, the effect is very cool, Im a bronzer girl!:) You look so so adorable and the color of the lip creme suits you. Have a great weekend, many hugs! xo

crafty-zone said...

You look so lovely in this makeup, it's natural, but so adorable! And this pallete is amazing!



I really adore these colours together. Aside form the gummy lip gloss that you talked about, I like that the set has a good closure/hinge. That's what I am always wanting for travelling sake. :) Have a lovely weekend!

That seems like a great palette!! I love how it is all in one spot!

Stanislava E. said...

Oh yes, large makeup pallettes do intimidate me! I prefer it compact! I have never heard about Too Faced before, but this holiday collection looks really nice! Mmm sweet chocolate scent! Have a lovely weekend too!


Julie Ly said...

I'm am so jealous of all your Too Faced products, love, love, love this! xx


Rowena @ rolala loves said...

I find large makeup palettes to be intimidating as well cause I just get overwhelmed by all the choices. This one looks like it has a lovely assortment of complimentary products and colors and the look you created is just so fresh and pretty Kim!

Lorena said...

I have to say that the look you created for yourself with these Two Faced products, turned out spectacular! You look splendid.

Pilar said...

I love the look you created with this set! You look so pretty Kim! I don't own any Two Faced products, but I hear so many people say positive things about the brand! I agree this set has everything you need to create great makeup looks!

The Dragonfruit said...

Oooh, what an adorable palette of everything! Haha, I love the handy design charts so you can see just how to recreate looks :)

Man, these pallets make me so ready for the holidays! A very pretty set and it's awesome that it smells like chocolate! The bronzer is probably too dark for me, but I bet everything else would work beautifully!


Jane @ anothermommablog.blogspot.com said...

I love makeup kits, just something about having everything at your finger tips, so handy. It looks great on you. I think neutrals are simply perfect for fall! Have a great weekend!

jo said...

Hi Kim! I just bought Too Faced The Return of Sexy Eye palette and I love it! I was debating on this palette too. It looks super sweet! Yea, I was wondering if you're still in New Orleans. No worries, take your time with the fashion recap. Have a great weekend! Hope all is well. :)

xo Jo


Ivana Split said...

you're right! the packaging is absolutely fabulous....and the products look amazing!

Glamour ZONE said...

it looks awesome.just love how it looks on you,so pretty

Mica said...

That is such a cute little kit! So fun that it has a chocolate scent to it as well! :)

I like that it comes with little instructions for how to use teh products too - my bestie got me a little kit for Christmas one year showing me how to apply the eyeshadow, otherwise I would never have known how to do it, haha! Used it a couple times for weddings and events, but it takes me too long to consider it for day to day

I like this brand. I haven't tried these, but I have tried a few of their products before. I think they have the cutest packaging. Don't you?

Mikka said...

Need that make up palette, Flawless make up Kim, love it! xo

Unknown said...

I guess I would fall in the camp of wanting to buy this since I don't have them all, but I could see why that would annoy some beauty bloggers. I love the combo and mix of all the natural pink and bronze colors. I think these look so good on all women and aren't too crazy like so many holiday kits that mix bright colors that I end up never wearing. Love the lip gloss on you and how you contoured. You look suns kissed, but not too bronze like you mentioned. Thanks for the review!!


Unknown said...

This is so cute!! I already have both of those Bronzers so I will have to pass on this one. I would love it for the eyeshadows though! I really want the chocolate bar palette, but I have way too many neutral palettes already!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Such a beautiful color palette. I love the instructions (which I would need)! The lip color is so pretty.

Enara Girl said...

I want to try it since a long time. xoxo

The Fashion Stir Fry said...

You share the cutest beauty products on your blog. This sounds really interesting and nice. Thank you Kim :).


Unknown said...

I also love how brown meets pink. Your make up look so natural here! I love your lipstick color the most x


Cee said...

I have to admit, Kim, this kit would never have appealed to me on its own - but seeing the look you put together using it, I think I'm in love! I definitely see a trip to Sephora in my (near) future ;)

Unknown said...

A chocolate scent?! The colors look common imo so the big draw for me is the scented makeup idea. Even if light, I like the idea of that. It might get me to wear makeup if it smelled like tasty goods... or make me overeat :D

Coco said...

Dear Kim, I've recently become a huge fan of Too Faced, so I'm happy you are reviewing their latest products! This palette dsuitable doesn't look suitable to my complexion, but I'd love the concept of a complete small makeup set. I am totally in love with the eyeshadow brushes from Too Faced, plus I've bought the Cat Eye palette, which you might have spotted in my IG profile. The colours are glorious for a cat-eye lover like me and the packaging (a leopard print tin) is an eye candy. So happy Kizzy won the giveaway!! Happy Sunday dear!!!

this kit looks perfect for creating a natural look, and I love how you can contour your face! very nice review Kim :)

Anne said...

You look lovely Kim....hope you are enjoying the weekend:)

Unknown said...

I love this Kim! Thanks for the review!



Jo said...

I stay clear from large palettes too as I know I would probably take 10 years to finish everything after being intimidated by them. The Too Faced tin puts me in a holiday mood. I like how the tin closes nicely without any product being dusted all over to the rest. That's the problem with many palettes. The lip gloss looks so pretty on you but eeew about teh gummy feeling. I know what you mean by that. A great and honest review as always, Kim!

Nats ~Coral Tinted Perceptions said...

I've never used this brand but the colour palette looks great!

Tina Bradley said...

Hi, Kim! I'm doing my weekend blog catch up, too, right now. :) These products sound great--especially the idea of chocolate scented cosmetics. The packaging is adorable, too. Loving these gorgeous pics of you! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Chic Delights said...

This products looks so yummy Kim. Just the names Creme brulee and white chocolate makes me hungry already. I like the packaging and that it has a guide on how to apply them. The name is marvellous!

Unknown said...

the result is perfect, you look so pretty!
Have a great week end!


Vett Vandiver said...

gorgeous bronzer, Kim!

Sara said...

Kim, you are so beautiful! I love those pictures of you! The makeup is lovely, but I mostly love the names. I like when makeup is named after food, it is super cutesy, but awesome.

Ahleessa said...

This is such a cute collection and great for a gift! Thanks for the review and it looks great on you. I'm used to seeing you with bright colors but you look hot with light lips as well. :)


Unknown said...

I feel you on the large pallets... I just give up. But this one looks amaaaaazing. I definitely have to put it on my wishlist. I like Too Faced anyway.

SprinklesofStyle said...

I can't remember if I've commented on here but the colours look beautiful on you and the eyeshadow swatches are gorgeous - they look really rich, vibrant and creamy on the skin which is always nice!

Plus - they have nice names which makes me want to eat them hahaha!

Hi - what are the dimensions of this palette? i want something small to replace a full makeup bag when going on overnight trips. Thanks!

DustyJil said...

Thank you for a great review and swatches. These products look lovely on you! I didn't purchase when it was full price, because I have the Chocolate Bar palette and the Bonjour Soleil palette which include all the items (minus lipgloss) in this set. When Too Faced had it on sale I jumped on it! Why, just as you mentioned, it. Ames everything less intimidating, and the products are fabulous! These are my most used shades in those palettes, Los having them in one adorable, convenient palette is a huge plus. Thanks again!
