Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette and Gingerbread Man & Gingerbread Girl Melted Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

My final purchase from the Too Faced Christmas Collection was The Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette  $49 (Nordstrom, ULTA, JCPenney, Sephora, Macy's) and Gingerbread Girl Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick $21 (ULTA). Too Faced re-released the Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick $21 (review) from last year (I still have mine) and will include it in this review. You may also remember the mini Gingerbread Cookie palette that was included in Too Faced's Christmas In New York Grande Hotel Cafe in 2016. I really love the Gingerbread theme and glad Too Faced is continuing it each year. My wish is that they come out with a Gingerbread House! That would be dreamy & delicious!

Too Faced Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick - Supersweet
Too Faced Gingerbread Man was initially released last year (link & review above). It was so popular it SOLD OUT. There were a lot of broken hearts. I just looked at my review from last year and it was selling for $176 on eBay! You would be surprised what people will pay for a limited edition item. I wasn't using my MAC Cinderella items, recently sold them and made some nice change (swatched & all). Many makeup enthusiasts collect makeup! I'm happy to say Too Faced came out with Gingerbread Man AGAIN! This time there seems to be enough to go around. So that's good! You can read my original review, but it smells like gingerbread cake. The color is a deep pumpkin-brown orange. Last year, I compared it to Kylie's Pumpkin which was darker (more brown in it). I really love Gingerbread Man.

Too Faced Gingerbread Girl Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick - Supersweet
This year, Too Faced added Gingerbread Girl (link above) Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick to their popular Gingerbread Collection. I swatched Gingerbread Man & Gingerbread Girl for you below. It's a darker brown, but has just the right amount of orange in it. Perfect Fall color! Gingerbread Man has little gingerbread men on the cap. Gingerbread Girl has little gingerbread girls on the cap. To my nose, both have the same great scent. Both of these are full-size. Remember, The Sweet Smell of Christmas Melted Matte Lipsticks are only deluxe size. Personally, I feel these holiday lippies are so popular Too Faced should make them all full-size. They should continue with these holiday collection lipsticks. I'm collecting mine. I also feel they should re-release Candy Cane. Mine STILL smells good. Chocolate & Mint. It smells so delicious. The box for Gingerbread Girl has a beautiful pink scalloped design with peppermints. It's also decorated with snowflakes & hearts. I'm so glad I kept my Gingerbread Man box! I'm also keeping my Gingerbread girl box.

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette (Outer Box)
No one saw this coming, but when it was first featured the makeup community went NUTS! This palette initially SOLD OUT on Too Faced's website. They must've had a second batch and it SOLD OUT. But there are five other stores you can purchase this from (link above). How deliciously cute is this eyeshadow palette? Let's talk the outer box! Perfect gingerbread brown color. Iced swirls border the box. Cute little gingerbread man and hearts adorn the box. Even the sides of the box are "iced" :D On the back of the box, are the colors and names of the eyeshadows. There are 18. 

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eye Shadow Palette (Eye Shadow Palette) - Sweet
The eye shadow palette has the same design as the outer box. It's in tin form (just like all the chocolate and peach palettes). I prefer when Too Faced puts their eyeshadows in this packaging. I've never liked cardboard packaging. I hope they stick with this aesthetic. Others seem to prefer it as well. This palette has the same magnetic closure as the others. When you open it up, you're greeted with a cute little gingerbread man and the whiff of gingerbread cake! It's truly delightful. There's a lot going on with the color scheme to this palette. There's an assortment of frosty whites, purples, browns and oranges, pinks, golds and greens. The looks you can create with this are endless. All the colors really swatched beautifully. I'm truly excited to use this palette and create some Fall & Winter looks. I mention this in my video, but this palette can be challenging for beginners. All the shades are super-pigmented and come off strong. You really have to some blending skills. This could be frustrating for someone not experienced with eyeshadows. Also, these shadows create really powerful looks. Just watch my video and see how I had to layer and blend different colors.
