Today I’m just going to be quickly reviewing and talking about the new Too Faced Christmas range and why I’m so excited about it. I’ve been a huge fan of everything Too Faced ever since I received one of their Christmas in New York sets two years ago, who else remembers their GORGEOUS packaging for that range? I was particularly excited about this years Christmas range after seeing a leaked photo of their Gingerbread palette – which is DEFINITELY on my Christmas list! The colours are incredible and they looked even better in person after I saw a tester palette in a Debenhams in Cardiff.
Included in their 2018 Christmas range is this Melted Matte set – The Sweet Smell Of Christmas – it includes four mini shades (which are actually a really good size) and is surprisingly super affordable! I’ve had my eye on for quite some time. I’ve never tried any of their matte lipsticks before which is crazy considering how much I love the brand, I own a few of their Melted Latex ones but I’d just never had the chance to pick up any of their matte shades.
When I saw they were doing this Christmas lipstick set for just £22 ($28) I had my heart set on it. I wanted to get it myself rather than add it to my Christmas list because I didn’t want to ask for too much for Christmas, and I wanted to wear these during autumn and the lead up to Christmas – just look at how autumnal those colors are! And of course the packaging for each of these lipsticks are giving me ALL the autumnal vibes, I absolutely love it!
Even though I trust the quality of the brand, I’m always a little sceptical when trying matte liquid lipsticks after my first experience with them. The first ones I ever tried were the Sleek ones, I know a lot of people love them but I just really didn’t get on with them, I found them to be so dry and crumbly on my lips so I’ve pretty much avoided matte liquid lipsticks since. Admittedly my lips are quite dry to begin with so that probably didn’t help. The Too Faced ones however, are nice and creamy and don’t seem to crumble at all. My lips were particularly dry on the day I first tested them so they did feel a little uncomfortable at first because, of course, the lipsticks dried down, but this issue was quickly resolved by adding a bit of lip balm over the top. With the added lip balm I couldn’t even tell I was wearing anything on my lips, the colour stayed all day, it didn’t crack or crumble and I didn’t need to re apply, I definitely approve of these lipsticks – surprise!
As an added bonus, like all Too Faced products do, these smell amazing, and they taste pretty good too! Each one has a Christmas/ autumn scent which is just another reason to love these lipsticks even more. The scents include: Pumpkin Spice, Sugar Cookie, Cinnamon Bear, and Hot Buttered Rum.
As well as the good longevity and sweet scent, the colour range is fabulous too, and as I’ve said many times already, they’re perfect for this time of year. My favourite of all of them has to be Pumpkin Spice, it’s a lovely, warm toned, burnt orange/ brown, quite similar to Gingerbread Man, just a little lighter. Out of all the shades I thought Cinnamon Bear was going to be the one I wouldn’t really use much, but it’s not quite as bright red as it first looks so I wore it to work yesterday and got so many compliments on it, plus it’s the perfect Christmas lip shade! Sugar Cookie is your everyday nude shade, you can’t really go wrong with a nude, and Hot Buttered Rum is similar to Pumpkin Spice, it’s just a little more of a dark browny nude.
I’m so happy with this set and even happier with the price point. I think Too Faced have yet again done another amazing Christmas range, I just know I’ll get so much use out of all these shades which is great. Usually when buying a set there’s at least one shade I dislike, but I literally love every single one of these. I’ll leave a link to this set below so you can check it out for yourself, and if you do end up trying them I’d love to know what you think too! I was lucky enough to get mine in store as they are selling out fast, but ASOS still has them in stock, so grab them soon if you don’t want to miss out. However, if you’re in the US you can easily get them from the Too Faced website. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and my other socials to keep up with all things festive and beauty related.
