Too Faced Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks, Merry Kissmas, Candy Cane, Park Avenue Kisses Review And Giveaway

Hey everybody! I didn't have a chance to do lip swatches for this post, because my mom had hip replacement surgery (years of ballet, cheer-leading etc had taken its toll) Tuesday. She was in a lot of pain, because it was bone rubbing against bone. Everything went well with her surgery and they released her Wednesday evening. She's now getting home care, so I've been busy meeting with nurses, physical therapists, getting medicine, preparing meals and running errands. I'm in care taker mode! LOL But she's feeling a lot better. So that makes me SMILE. One of the nurses that came to my home, said "your house smells so good! what is that scent?" I told her Bath & Body Works pumpkin pecan waffles. She said, "I have to get it! It smells so good". Unbeknownst to her, I had an extra one. I put it in a bag and gave it to her after she finished with my mom. She gave me the biggest hug and said "You just made my week". I told her I like to give things to people. I like to make people happy. She said, "You made me so happy today". I felt she was having a rough week. It was just a feeling I had. Something as simple as a candle changed her mood around. I encourage all to give whenever you can. It doesn't have to be a gift. Say a kind word. You can really make a difference. This world can be cold.

Too Faced came out with an entire Christmas Collection (The Chocolate Shop, Merry Macarons, Grande Hotel Cafe). They also came out with lipsticks! But many were NOT NEW! Companies do that a lot for Christmas. It's a great way to try their products. I had many of these already, so any duplicates I'm giving away. So let me go over each.

Too Faced Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks

I didn't order this! LOL They were suppose to send me Merry Kissmas (below), but sent this. I called them and they said I could keep it. I thought that was very nice & generous of Too Faced. Thank You! I'm giving this away, because I know it won't work for me. It's PINK! Pretty pink, but I go for more brown pinks. This is Too Faced Melted Peony and the blush is Justify My Love. If you feel this would work for you or know someone it would work for, then definitely enter my giveaway. It's very cute.

Too Faced Merry Kissmas

I love Merry Kissmas! I wanted this, because it gave mini sizes (great for travel) of some of my favorites Melted Chocolate Honey, Chihuahua, Fig and Lady Balls (what a name huh ewww). I had never tried Chihuahua or Lady Balls, so I thought it would be a great way to try them. I loved Chihuahua so much I ordered a full size. But guess what? My blog buddy Tanya of Leopard Lace and Cheesecake just did a blog post showing Maybelline's Color Jolt in Stripped Down as a dupe :D So if you're looking for a more affordable option, go with Maybelline.

Too Faced Candy Cane (Limited Edition)

Online, I didn't know what to expect from Candy Cane. Sometimes colors look different. This is a pinkish red. It's very pretty and I love the scent. Think chocolate & peppermint.

Too Faced Park Avenue Kisses

I almost didn't buy this! I already had 2 of the shades (pink chocolate & sugar daddy [not yet reviewed]). So I'm giving those away. They are full-size! Yes, you see swatches below but they're not the new one's I'm giving you. I pulled out my stash and swatched them. LOL I'm not ratchet! I kept the black tubed one which is Rebel Heart. It's a matte red. I love red lipsticks. I do love the pouch! Didn't know if I would. It's made of a real sturdy plastic! There are two scenes! The popular pink haired girl in a yellow taxi cab and the glamorous couple walking on 5th avenue. Cosmetic pouch? Let's just say super deluxe pencil case. But again, I love it.

So for this giveaway, you're getting the Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks Set plus Pink Chocolate & Sugar Daddy lipsticks. You may be getting something else. You know me! So if you love PINK or know someone that does, this giveaway is for you. This giveaway is open worldwide! Anywhere USPS ships! Read the fine print. Good Luck and Happy Weekend to all!



  1. I'm so glad to hear that your mom is doing well from her surgery! Give her well wishes and hugs from me! And I love the story about you giving her nurse one of your candles. That was so sweet of you and so nice that you made her day! You're right that little acts of Kindness can really make someone's day and make a huge difference. The world can be cold and we need more warmth. You are one of the Kindest and sweetest person that I know, Kim!

  3. That was a very sweet thing to do for that woman. They do not get enough recognition for their hard work! Don't forget to take care of yourself because being the caregiver is grueling.

  4. So sorry to hear about your mom, Kim, but glad to hear everything's ok now. And you are seriously the sweetest for giving that to the nurse. You rock!:)
    Anyhoo, your recent posts is making me wanna go to Sephora now! hehe....thanks for the heads up about the Maybelline dupe tho.

  7. Your generous spirit is one of things I admire most about you Kim - you give so much on your blog and I can only imagine how much you give to people you know in real life, too! It's a wonderful thing to see, and it sounds like you really did make that woman's day, which is so admirable :)

  8. So happy the surgery went well, hope your mom has an easy recovery! So sweet of you to give the nurse the candle and thanks for another amazing giveaway!

  9. I am glad to hear that your mum is better now. I could only imagine the pain she went through, hopefully now once she fully recovers, it will be better for her. Do you believe in karma? I am sure something will come up to make you happy :)
    All of these products look gorgeous, I should get my hands on this merry kissmass set! Great giveaway, Kim. I hope you will have a great weekend!

  10. I'm so happy that your mom's surgery went well and that she's back home. being able to recuperate in the comfort of your own home really makes a difference. You must be so busy helping her out and I'm sure that makes the both of you feel better. My mom had cataract surgery a few weeks ago and it just gave me peace of mind to be able to help her out. She's back to normal again now and swimming and dancing like nothing happened. It will probably take a little longer for your mom but I hope she has a speedy and smooth recovery as well. You're very good at making me people happy Kim! Thanks again for another sweet giveaway!

  11. All of these products look amazing! I really need to try something from Too Faced, I never have! Glad that's your mum is on the mend, that can't have been a very nice experience for her. I gave you a follow on bloglovin :)

  12. Good to hear your mom is on her way to recovery :)
    The nurse was right, you are very giving.

  13. I am sorry to hear your mom had to go through hip replacement surgery but I am glad to hear she is doing well in recovery! I hope she is back on her feet soon. It is wonderful how something simple can make someone's day. Compliments seem to do that. Beautiful tones on the Too Faced lipsticks!

  14. Kim, you made me tear up. You are such an amazing person and this is why I love when bloggers share more about themselves instead of just getting straight to the topic of the day, you can really get to know the person and in your case, I'm so glad you shared this story, it really touched me. You will ALWAYS be okay, regardless of the bumps in the road because you are a giver. I strongly believe that those have a heart of gold like yourself, will always have what's needed and plenty more,it comes back around. I'm glad your mom is feeling better and she has such an amazing daughter who cares for her. I'll be keeping her in my prayers for an even faster recovery. As for the makeup, the packaging is gorgeous! Too Faced really knows how to market seasonally, they're just too cute. Lol, companies may try to duplicate products and rename them, but for collectors like yourself, it's a complete #fail, haha. I just spotted a Mariah Carey collection with MAC on your side bar, OH, I can't wait to see that! Thanks so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!



  15. It's so good to read your mom is back home and feeling better, Kim. This is such a great givaway. Good luck to everyone.

  16. How scary for you and your mum Kim! I'm glad the surgery went well and she is recovering nicely! So great that you've got some nurses coming to help, I can imagine they will be really helpful for her recovery!

    It's so sweet of you to give the nurse that candle too - little things like that can really make someone's day! :)

    THank you for the giveaway too, those lipsticks look lovely so I have my fingers crossed! :)

  18. So glad your mom is doing well. I know how tiring it can be to take care of someone. Kim, you're such a wonderful person! All the best to the participants!

  19. Hi Kim, I hope your mother will recover quickly, I'm sure with your care and attention so be, caring for our parents is a way to give back everything they did for us when they were young, I'm glad it went well for Surgery. By the way, has fallen in love with the colors of the first pack, this brand always has a beautiful presentation in each of their products, thank you for this review!

  20. These lipsticks truly melts my heart. It would be fabulous to wear these lipsticks. Love the colours. I wish your mom speedy recovery. You are a very good daughter. She is lucky to have you.

  21. so wonderful products
    I'd love to know your opinion on my NEW OUTFIT
    have an happy day

  22. the formula of the lipsticks look nice. always wanted to try too faced, but never had the chance to.

  23. oops...
    sending love and aloha to your mom for a speedy recovery.

  24. The packaging of this collection is so outstanding. I'd love to live in a world looking like this lol. As for the products, I think I would use Park Avenue Kisses to the last bit. I also like the candy cane shade, but I don't like mint scented lipsticks (they are supposed to plump lips with mint aren't they?). What's most important, I'm glad your mom feels better, that's a very tough surgery, but it's life changing. Tons of get well wishes to your mom, and I applaude to you as a caretaker. You made the sweetest act of kindness gifting your candle. I'm completely with you on this point. A kind word, a smile, an apparently small gift mean so much to someone who's having a rough time. Now that I get so many beauty treats from companies I enjoy sharing them with my friends, or like you, with a person I happen to meet and could use some beauty pampering. By the way, if you see something you like in my stash, just send me a message! Happy Sunday doll!

  25. Too Faced is such a nice brand! Love your makeup goodies



  26. Eek, I'm sorry to hear about your Mom, that sounds painful! What a lovely giveaway, I've definitely entered as I'm a huge Too Faced fan and don't actually own any of the products! I've heard so much about the melted chocolate range and they look so beautiful that I'd love to try!

  27. You are such a sweet soul Kim! Giving so freely is a rare trait, especially today. I'm so happy you made that woman's day/week. That's a part of customer service that can sometimes be enjoyable - being able to give someone an experience that completely turns their day around. I love when I'm able to do that.
    Also, praise God for a safe surgery for your mom! I was so relieved when I saw those Snapchat updates.

  30. Thank god your mom is doing okay! I wish her a speedy recovery! These are so many good products here! I love Too Faced's "Better than Sex Mascara". I will have to check out their other products.


  31. Kim, sorry to hear about your mum, but I am so glad that she will be doing better soon. I also agree kindness is so important. I've always felt that more people should just incorporate kindness more into their everyday lives. It's so nice about the gift you gave as well. I believe when you are a gracious person and give with a good heart, things will always be in your favour. Thanks for the lovely review, and I was interested in reading this after viewing your social images. I think Too Faced products are some of my sister's favourites, so I may have to check a couple for Christmas gifting.
    Have a great new week! <3

  32. Ooh, love the shade selection of these sets! Extra tempted by the candy cane shade, as I love bright pinks and anything chocolate mint scented :)

    Thanks for the generous giveaway! xo

  33. You are so sweet and thoughtful! Its so very true that you never know what is going on in someone else's life. Showing kindness as simple as a nice compliment could make someone's day. Thanks so much for the shout out! These sets are all so cute!

  34. That was so kind of you! A small act of kindness can go a long way. We never know what someone else is going through. I'm so glad your mom is feeling better! Too Faced has the cutest sets! I'm really liking that Candy Cane shade!
