Happy Thursday everyone!
I’m excited to bring you a review on one of Too Faced’s Holiday 2016 sets. First off, can anyone beat the Christmas in New York theme? Call me crazy but it’s my dream to travel to NYC during the holiday season. Something about it just fascinates me but until that happens, I’ll gladly enjoy dreaming about it.
Okay, back to the review. I tried the Too Faced Lip Injection and instantly knew I had to get it. So I went on the hunt for this one and wouldn’t you know that all the stores I checked didn’t have these in stock. So, the next best thing was this set as it had 3 of the lip plumpers and matching blushes. Was it worth it? Keep reading!
Too Faced Naughty Kisses and Sweet Cheeks
Described as: This fabulously festive set comes with three deluxe Lip Injection Glossy Lip Glosses and three coordinating Love Flush Blushes, all wrapped up in one pretty package. Give as one present or spread the love (and kisses) by gifting each pair separately.
I love how these come ready to gift in case you choose to do so!
This set includes: Mini Lip Injection Glossy Original (clear) and Love Flush Crazy in Love (bright pink); Mini Lip Injection Glossy Milkshake (nude) and Love Flush Baby Love (nude peach); and Mini Lip Injection Glossy Like a Boss (orchid) and Love Flush Dream Lover (lilac).
Great value set ($36)
Unique/variety of shades
Can be gifted
Blushes are nicely pigmented
Good lasting power
Blushes are smaller than I’d like
Colors may be too sheer for darker skin tones
Overall: I’m very happy with this set. Considering that a deluxe size of the Lip Injection costs $14, receiving 3 of these plus the blushes makes it a good value. You can keep all 3 or gift them and they come imprinted with a gift tag, ready for you to personalize it. I was a bit skeptical to try the lilac blush and lip plumper but it’s actually a very flattering shade and it sheers out a bit more pink on my cheeks. Both the blushes and lipglosses have good lasting power, with the blush lasting almost all day and the gloss a solid 3 hours. The lip plumpers do tingle for about a minute or so but it does deliver a pouty, fuller lip. My only complaints would be that the blushes are on the small side and it takes a few swipes for my brush to pick up product; also, some of the shades might be too sheer for darker skin tones. Other than that, Too Faced did a great job with this set!

I’d love to know, what holiday sets are you looking to buy?
