Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Holiday 2013

The Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set ($45 USD) is part of Too Faced Joy to the Girls Holiday 2013 Collection. This set features two separate palettes, one titled Be Merry and the other titled Be Bright. Each set contains six eye shadows, a blush and a bronzer/highlighter. The set also comes with a full sized Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara and a beautiful  pink and gold metallic polka dot makeup bag designed by celebrity designer Mary McDonald. This set is valued at $290 and with a price tag of just $45, it’s a complete steal!

Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set

Front of both Palettes

Both palettes are perfect for creating festive Holiday looks and as with most Too Faced palettes, the Eye shadows have incredible pigmentation, apply like butter and have little to no fall out. The only shade I had issues with was Mauvelous from the Be Merry Palette. It was rather sheer with fallout. The blushes and bronzers also have great pigmentation with a silky texture, making them easy to blend. I got about 8 hours wear from both the shadows and cheek colors before they started to fade.  Both palettes have a magnetic closure and sleek design, making them purse friendly!

LASH INJECTION MASCARA


A nice volumizing mascara; however, I don’t love it. I prefer the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara over this.
