Too Faced Grand Hotel Cafe

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

If there is a new Too Faced release, I am most likely to go out and buy it. They are the only products I ever talk about on my site! The packaging always gets me stupidly excited and you can usually count on the brand to come up with amazing new colors and ideas to amp up your makeup game! This year, for the holiday season, I couldn’t resist to the ‘Grand Hotel Cafe’ collection!

I hate to talk badly about brands, especially when they are brands I love and swear by. I am a firm believer of never wasting your time with online negativity and hate. However, this isn’t a hate post. This is an honest opinion, about some products from the collection that I wasn’t impressed with. Had I known I would have felt this way, I would have been more cautious with my impulse purchases and done my research.

This collection comes wit three different palettes and a miniature ‘better than sex’ mascara. The palettes each have a holiday scent and SMELL DELICIOUS (Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Gingerbread Cookie).

In short, I found some of the shimmery shades to be chalkier than the usual Too Faced buttery formula, and the matte shades to be VERY close to other ones found in their palettes. If you haven’t bought a Too Faced palette before, I would say give it a go, however I didn’t feel is was worth it for me. I did love the bronzer and blusher shades and have been carrying my Gingerbread Cookie Palette everywhere with me for that reason!

THE LIP PRODUCT, on the other hand, was a hit for me! I fell in love with the Peppermint Mocha Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick and have been wearing it on every special occasion. The color is just as fabulous as the consistency and I haven’t really seen anything quite like it before! GO BUY IT! hah xx
