Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! It’s not even Halloween yet and my enthusiasm for the holiday season rivals Santa’s. I don’t know about you, but I’ve started checking things off my shopping list early this year and believe it or not I’ve almost finished organizing my gifts! When the last minute mall goers are fighting for parking spaces in a blinding blizzard, I’ll be cocooned in a warm throw with some hot cocoa. To help make gift giving easier, Too Faced has released a collection of festive new sets that are sure to please!
For the makeup lovers on your list, the Naughty Kisses & Sweet Cheeks Collection is a treat! The set comes with 3 mini blush and lip gloss duos in coordinating shades. You can keep one for yourself, give one to a friend or get busy stuffing those stockings! For just $45.00 ($15.00 per set) you can check three people off your list at once and if you want to be extra nice, pair it with a gorgeous Too Faced eye shadow palette. There are even gift tags on the back of the decorative boxes!
For ladies who prefer neutral tones, this box contains the Deluxe Lip Injection Gloss in the shade Milkshake and the Love Flush Blush in Baby Love. The blush contains a subtle dusting of shimmer and emits a soft, peachy glow. The gloss has a shiny finish with a very sheer, nude tint. If you are new to the Lip Injections keep in mind that the formula is meant to plump for a voluminous effect so you will experience a slight stinging sensation that dissipates within a few minutes.
The next set includes the clear Lip Injection (which can be layered over any lipstick) and the shimmery pink blush in the shade Crazy in Love. This box can be gifted to people of all skin tones (if they like pink) and the silky pigment adds a pop of vibrant color and highlight. The blush is also quite buildable with great color-pay off and on a gloomy winter day this shade definitely perks-up the complexion!
Last but not least we have my favorite gloss from the Injection range called Like a Boss and the Love Flush Blush in the shade Dream Lover. Like all lip color in this collection, this one is also sheer but it has a pretty lavender tone that makes lips appear juicy and alluring. On my skin, the blush appears lavender-pink which has a fresh highlight effect but I can see it being a bit ashy on deeper skin tones. I would have preferred a rich plum hue instead but the great thing about buying multiple sets is that you can gift them to whoever suits the shades best.
I think if the boxes contained the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks instead of the Injections they would be even more enticing (at least to me) but these cute little gifts would make any girl squeal for joy! The mini sizes also make the products great for travel and small handbags.
