Holiday 2016
Too Faced Color Wheel Blush Palette

With so many new pieces launching across brands, instead of bombarding you with brand-specific posts, I thought I’d group today’s recently launched products by type; most of what I’ve seen launch today is available via Sephora but may eventually release to other retailers later on.

Also, all of the holiday launches that were exclusive to Sephora VIB Rouges are now available for everyone. 🙂

Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette

Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette
Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette

Too Faced x NikkieTutorials The Power of Makeup Palette ($56.00 for ) contains a slew of products for the eyes and cheeks. It’s a decent palette, but the eyeshadows have room for improvement, as they are not consistent. They also need to be applied over a primer in order to have decent or better pigmentation, to last at least eight hours, and for blending as some of the shades are drier and tended to sheer out when applied. Without primer, they have a more faded appearance and most of the shades lasted six to seven hours. I think the brand should have included their Glitter Insurance, instead of their standard Eyeshadow Primer (but worth reiterating is that Too Faced touts their eyeshadows as highly pigmented and long-wearing as a formula), because three of the eyeshadows, plus the glitter, absolutely need an adhesive base or else it is a one-way ticket to Fallout City.

As a lot of readers have noted in the initial launch post, the palette looks a lot like every other holiday palette Too Faced has released. I struggled a bit myself trying to pair the shades together, as it didn’t feel as cohesive as you might have expected, and the drier, more crumbly textures of the metallic shades didn’t blend well with the thinner matte shades. The two blushes and bronzers are permanent shades, though Justify My Love is a much darker, brighter, and cooler-toned shade in the palette than my single (by a lot). The highlighter, Champagne Truffle, is actually an eyeshadow from another palette, so you might have that already in your stash.

Ivy is a pale, muted white with a matte finish. It had a very smooth, finely-milled consistency with some excess powder that would kick up in the pan. It is chalky against my skin tone, for reference, and I tried to mix it with Painkiller to make it a workable brow bone highlight on my skin tone. On fairer skin tones, it should work better. It lasted six hours on me before disappearing. Urban Decay Bump (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Starlight (LE) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Gesso (P, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Too Faced Extra Creamy (LE, $16.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar). Viseart Cool Matte #1 (P) is more muted (95% similar). Sephora Swan Song (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Three's a Party #1 (LE, $2.29) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Coconut Cream (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC White (P, $19.00)(100% similar). Makeup Geek White Lies (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Snow (LE) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Too Faced White Christmas (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Linen (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Liberatus (P) is warmer, more muted, darker (90% similar). Viseart Ivoire (P) is warmer, more muted, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sugar Coated is a light pink with warmer undertones paired with a frosted finish and silver sparkle. It had good pigmentation, though the texture was drier and tended to sheer out on its own. The glittery bits blended away from the base color, so this shade would need an adhesive base to perform well. The color lasted seven hours before creasing and had fallout. Too Faced Pink Frosting (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Dior Garden Pastels #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Harpooned Heart (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Rose Garden #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Ex-boyfriend (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Shiseido Mist (WT 901) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pink Freeze (P, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #2 (LE) is brighter (95% similar). Too Faced Pink Pearl (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Whimsical (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Delightful (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Milani Bella Pink (13) (P, $4.49) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Diamond Pink (LE, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Maribu (LE, $32.50) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Signe Particulier #1 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Violet Blend #1 (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Fresh & Mint #2 (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I902 Quartz (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Coquet (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Frosted Yum is a muted, light silver with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic, sparkly finish. The glitter of this one also separated away from the base color, so it didn’t stay where it was initially applied and resulted in fall out over time. The base color was mostly opaque and wore well for seven and a half hours before creasing. The dryness of the powder made it harder to blend with the matte shades in the palette. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #3 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sugarpill Grand Tiara (P, $13.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME116 Silver (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Vivacious Maguari (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Natasha Denona Aluminum (10M) (P, $29.00) is brighter (95% similar). Buxom Pure Platinum (P, $12.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Tin (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Silver Coin (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Blue Garden #4 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Ombre de Lune #2 (P) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Silver Chafer (35) (LE, $33.00)(90% similar). Kat Von D Moonshine (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Viseart Boheme Dream #4 (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Smoky #1 (P) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Iridescent Shell (110) (LE, $13.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Liberty (P, $5.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Benefit Blingo (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Irresistible is a sparkling, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic finish. Like the previous three shades, the glitter doesn’t stick to the base, which resulted in the sparkles transferring beyond the base color and would fall below the lid over time. I would highly recommend a glitter primer or an adhesive base to work with this palette. This shade lasted for six and a half hours before creasing. bareMinerals Standing O (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Treasure Hunt (DC, $18.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Gold (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Night Thrill (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eclaire (P, $29.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #18 (LE, $33.00) is lighter (90% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Ardency Inn Heaven (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). Too Faced Shiny Happy (LE, $16.00) is cooler, brighter, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay 1987 (LE, $19.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Painkiller is a muted, medium brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a very soft, finely-milled consistency that applied well to bare skin, but it did not work well with the more shimmery shades in the palette as it was too thin and dusty, so it did not layer well. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Too Faced Chocaholic (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Illamasqua Heroine (P) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Yamal (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Cobblestone (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm C3 (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Skinny Latte (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Wanderer (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cocoa Mirage #2 (P) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Social Butterfly #2 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Tan-gled Up in You (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Atelier Natural Brown #3 (P) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Clay (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M646 Latte (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Hello Kitty Hot Cocoa (LE) is lighter (85% similar). LORAC Latte (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Lancome Woody Bar (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup & Chill is a deep, reddish brown with a matte finish. Though the powder was silky and soft, it was also powdery in the pan, so it kicked up a lot of powder in the pan with even a soft touch of a brush. It applied well to bare skin with full, opaque coverage that wore well for seven and a half hours–it’s just a shade you have to use carefully to avoid initial fall out. Ciate Queen Bee (LE) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Bark (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Siren (LE) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Violeta (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Java (P) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Cocoa (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bittersweet (LE, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). Inglot #327 (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Bark (P, $28.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mystic Hour is a deep bluish-teal with a frosted finish. This shade had a lot of potential, but it fades immediately after applying–it just doesn’t retain that depth and intensity it has in the pan on the lid. Even over Too Faced’s primer, it was still underwhelming; I would try using it wet and over a glitter primer as the drier, frosted consistency would likely benefit from both changes. This shade started to crease after seven hours of wear. Make Up For Ever ME230 Peacock Blue (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Mint Chip (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #18 (P, $32.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Pre-Packaged (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #3 (P) is brighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Stormy Seas (113) (LE, $13.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wham Bam is a bright, medium-dark purple with warmer, pink undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, lightly drier texture that blended out fairly well and didn’t seem to fade immediately like Mystic Hour did. The color wore well for seven hours on me. Coloured Raine Fetish (P, $6.99) is darker (95% similar). MAC Selena (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Flash (P, $19.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Butterfly Party (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (85% similar). Sugarpill Hysteric (P, $13.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm #5 (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Fyrinnae Snowboarding (P, $6.75) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Illamasqua Trance (LE) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). MAC Zip Me Up (LE, $16.00) is more muted, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Wanted is a deep black with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a firmer texture, which made it harder to get color out of but also seemed to impede blending, as it applied unevenly and was difficult to pull and diffuse from wherever the powder initially landed. The color had noticeable fading after six and a half hours of wear. Urban Decay Blackjack (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar). Divergent Dauntless Ink (LE) is lower quality, warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 12 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Nehru (Guo Pei) (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm Serious (P, $16.00) is cooler, darker (95% similar). MAC Raven-Eyed (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Premier Regard #4 (P) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Killing Moon (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Shax (P) is warmer (95% similar).

Kat Von D Black Metal (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Silhouette (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Caviar (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Shade VI (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Pandora (P) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm Sleek (P, $16.00) is better quality, warmer (95% similar). Estee Lauder Black Chrome #1 (LE, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I Will Always Love You is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. You can find my original review for the formula and shade here for a more detailed look at claims and the like. Suffice to say, this wore a lot like the permanent version I have, but it appeared to be a bit less shimmery and had stronger pink tones while wearing the same (eight and a half hours but way short of the 16-hour wear claimed). Too Faced Papa Don't Peach (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Reflex (82) (LE, $45.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Soulshine #2 (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Justify My Love is a bright, bold, cotton candy pink with a satiny finish. It is much, much brighter and darker with stronger blue undertones than the permanent version (read my original review here). It is also more pigmented, so that’s an upside, with a slightly looser consistency. The color wore well for nine hours, a half hour longer than the permanent version did for me. Colour Pop Mochi (DC, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Thumper (P, $8.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Chocolate Soleil is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The powder was firmly packed into the pan, which made it difficult to work with as I struggled to chip away at it to get any color coverage. For swatching alone, I had to scrape away the top layer to get enough pigment to show up on my arm. I had to do the same to apply it to my face. It was unexpected, as Too Faced includes this shade in palettes regularly, and it’s typically quite soft and silky. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Warm Radiance (P, $34.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

Champagne Truffle is a light, pinky-white with a golden sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque pigmentation. It seemed less pigmented than the previous palette version (where it was released as an eyeshadow). The color lasted for seven and a half hours before separating on my cheeks. Disney by Sephora Treasures Untold (LE)(100% similar). Make Up For Ever S502 White Sand (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Glitterati (LE) is warmer, darker (95% similar). Disney by Sephora Sea Shells (LE) is darker (95% similar).

Black is a deep black with cool undertones and a satiny sheen. The Sketch Marker formula is supposed to be a long-wearing, waterproof, and vivid liquid eyeliner. It was very pigmented with a smooth, fluid consistency that applied easily and did not seem too watery nor did it apply unevenly. The tip had enough flex that you could maneuver around the curves of the eyelid without issue. The formula takes a bit of time to dry down and set, so if using on the upper lash line, I’d keep my eye shut for about 20 seconds after applying if you can. It did not bleed when I tested it under water. It lasted for eight hours on me. Illamasqua Abyss (P, $27.50)(100% similar). Bobbi Brown Really Black (LE, $24.00)(100% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Deeper (01) (P, $55.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blacquer (P, $25.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Glitterally appears as a light silver glitter that reflects pink, blue, and gold as it catches the light. It is a loose glitter, so it has virtually no claims on its own. It is a product that needs to be used with something else–adhesive, mixed with gloss, etc. in order to adhere and wear for any length of time. If you apply it on bare skin, it will just dust away. None of that is a criticism, and as there’s not much to rate it on, you will not find this one rated.

Too Faced Honey Bear & I Want Candy La Cremes

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick
Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick

Too Faced Honey Bear La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and fine gold shimmer paired with a lightly glossy finish. It had a creamy, melty consistency that’s emollient and very comfortable to wear, but it does move around a little more than your average lipstick does. It lasted four hours on me, and it was particularly hydrating while worn. MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

Too Faced I Want Candy La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a fine silver shimmer paired with a glossy finish. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had a moderate slip. I saw that some color welled into my lip lines, but this wasn’t that noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color lasted for four hours and was moisturizing over time. Estee Lauder Power Mode (410) (P, $32.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Genial (LE, $37.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar).

(As a note, I Want Candy seems to be MIA from most retailers–I was able to find it still listed on Ulta, but it is out of stock, so I’m guessing it’s been discontinued.)

Formula Overview

Too Faced La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to be a creamy, hydrating, and pigmented lipstick. The majority of the range has a signature texture: lightweight, creamy, moderately slippery, and feels like it melts against the lips. The color payoff varies from semi-opaque to fully opaque, though some of the glittery shades are sheerer (but packed with glitter). The formula is usually hydrating on me with average wear (about four hours).
