We've already talked about the Tarte Collector's Set (predicted to sell out) and today I want to share another amazingly priced holiday kit that's kind of jaw-dropping when you compare how much you get to how little you pay.
Too Faced co-founder and creative director Jerrod Blandino handpicked his favourite products for the eyes, face, cheeks and lips for this limited-edition set, appropriately named A Few of My Favorite Things. As soon as I opened up the outer packaging, this pink and gold pouch had me at hello:
Isn't she pretty? I mean, chevrons. More things should have chevrons, I say. Anyway, it's a fair size (10.5" across and 6.5" high), so you could use it as a makeup bag, iPad Mini-holder or even an evening clutch. Inside, there's this palette:
When then opens up to reveal this good stuff:
Wow! So many colours. You get:
- 20 Too Faced Eye Shadows (shades include Snowflakes, Whiskers on Kittens, Chocolate Milk, Moon on their Wings, Dark Chocolate, Cream Colored Ponies, Honey Honey, Busch de Noel, Evergreen, Blue Satin Sashes, Coquet, Taffy, Crisp Apple Strudel, Woolen Mittens, Soirée, Tinsel, Bluff, Ooh La Orchid, Party Time and Pure Glam)
- 2 Too Faced Blushes (shades include Raindrops on Roses and Melt into Spring)
- 2 Too Faced Bronzers (shades include Sun Bunny and Chocolate Soleil)
And that little book in the bottom right corner? It's a "How-To Glamour Guide," which has four face charts (Weekday, Weekend, Pretty Playful and Girls Night Out) with instructions for each on which products to use where.
But wait, there's more! Tucked into the clutch are also a full-sized Lip Injection Color Bomb! Moisture Plumping Lip Tint:
(The shade is Bee Sting, which appears to only be available for this set. It's verrry close to the pic above, a soft pinky nude.)
And a mini Better Than Sex Mascara in Carbon Black:
(How's that for a mascara name?) Anyway, I know you've been waiting patiently for the math on this one, and here it is. All these sweet prodz have a total value of C$496.00/US$436.00. Your price? Just C$64.00/US$56.00.
Obviously a ridiculous deal. I really like that they included a mix of textures with everything—the eyeshadow shades range from flat to shimmery to a couple of all-out sparkly ones—and there are both flat and subtly shimmery bronzer and blush colours. Also, don't be intimidated by the darkness of the blush and bronzers in the palette, because they go on way more sheer than you would think.
