This Christmas season, I have been doing a bit of browsing through some of the holiday beauty offers. A few things have caught my eye. Firstly, I picked up the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette in October, which I have been loving ever since, especially for travel. The next brand that caught my eye was Too Faced. They released quite a beautiful holiday collection this year inspired by Paris and La Durèe macarons. I decided to give this collection a try, so I picked up the La Petite Mason.
This gift set comes in a beautiful box that opens up to reveal a sneak peak of the inside of Parisian home with a view of Paris. This set comes with a travel sized Better than Sex mascara, which I have loved and raved about before. This supper volumizing mascara is perfect for a night out. It also comes with a 12 piece eyeshadow palette. There are 5 matte shadows, let it snow (white), reindeer (light warm-toned brown), knock out (dark brown), pussy cat (bright purple), and dreams (light cool-toned brown). The rest of the shadows are shimmery, honey pot (brilliant gold), paper roses (champagne pink), don’t settle (bronzy taupe), after hours (purple champagne), secret lovers (eggplant), jungle love (deep purple), and chocolate moon (sparkly black).
I have really been enjoying this palette. The middle row is my favorite, especially for night out smokey eye looks. The shadows are supper creamy, pigmented, and easy to blend, even the matte shades. The shades Reindeer and Dreams, both light matte browns, are particularly wonderful and versatile, especially for crease colors. Overall, I definitely think this palette is good for bold eye looks. It has a lot of dark shades for crease definition and even the lighter shades are very bold and pigmented. It is a very well rounded palette that I will definitely be using when I travel this season.
