If a beauty brand could be awarded for the cutest Christmas collection of the year, Too Faced would win it hands down in 2015! Known for their cute packaging every holiday (see last years here and here) this year the brand doesn’t disappoint with their Christmas in Paris Collection.
The pièce de résistance of the collection is the Le Grand Château, which comes in a box shaped like a chic Parisian mansion (with details on the inside too!). Not far behind is my personal favorite, the Le Petit Trésor La Créme Lipstick Trio that comes in a blue turquoise glitter pouch with an adorable Eiffel Tower charm. I could just melt! Today let’s take a look at two pieces from the Too Faced Christmas in Paris collection for 2015:
Le Petit Trésor
If you haven’t heard me profess my love for the Too Faced La Créme Lipsticks, then I’ll let you know right now – they’re good! Creamy, smooth with a beautiful color payoff and zero lip-dryness, these are one of my favorite lipsticks of all time. So, a holiday trio set that comes in a cute Paris-inspired glitter bag is icing on the cake! The La Petit Trésor set includes three La Créme Lipsticks: Nude Beach, Taffy and Wham! Of the three, two are permanent and one is exclusive to the set. If you are already a La Créme Lipstick fan you may already have one of the permanent shades (magically I did not!) but it is most definitely a great way to gift something you love (and try a new shade as well!)

Nude Beach is described as a “nude peach” shade, so a warm nude. Taffy is described as a “pink marshmallow nude”, and it is definitely a pinky-nude. Wham! is a a fun holiday sparkler! The shade is a cinnamon-red with lots of multi-colored sparkle. The feeling is smooth on the lips, but not as buttery-melt-on-your-lips as their creamy versions. It is definitely a fun one for the holidays (and reminds me of the sparkling additions they came out with last year here.)
Le Grand Château
This year, Too Faced pulled out all the stops with their palette presentation! The Le Grand Château houses (and is quite literally a house) three eye and face palettes and a deluxe size Better Than Sex mascara. The top of the house comes off and the the doors open to reveal the products inside. Even on the inside of the house the detail continues, as a cute fainting couch and window with a night scene of th glittering Eiffel Tower greets you.
L to R: Le Marais, Rendezvous, Provence, Parfait, Trés Chic, Noir, Trés Fab
All in all there are 18 eyeshadows (6 matte, 10 shimmer and 2 glitter), one shimmering bronzer and two matte blushes. The palettes give a beautiful mix of warm, metallic and cool shadows and I love the easy wear-ability of the shadows – even Provence, the purple shade is soft enough to wear every day, and Fleur is a beautiful rose-gold which is perfect for the holidays. I like that the palettes have been split up, rather than one huge palette which makes it easier to grab one and go, however I wish they would have placed all of the eyeshadows in two palettes and put the two blushes and bronzer in a one because if you want to bring both a blush and the bronzer along you’ll have to grab at least two of the sets. I suppose you could gift each one of the palettes separately, but then that means you would be separating them from this adorable packaging (and seriously that would be soul-crushing!) Oh and let’s not forget about the deluxe size Better Than Sex Mascara included in this kit as well.
Overall both of these gift sets get a big thumbs up from me for the holidays. The presentation is stunning, the pigmentation of all the products is excellent, and if you already love Too Faced eyeshadows and lip products, these perform just as you would expect them to. If you have yet to try the La Créme lipsticks yet, then this is a wonderful chance to try them out for yourself – or gift your bestie, mom, sister, cousin, etc. with something you love too!
