Too Faced Everything Nice Palette

Too Faced Everything Nice Palette ($56.00 for 1.76 oz.) contains twenty eyeshadows and four bronzer/blushes. It comes with a glittery, pink pouch, three short-handled brushes, and a deluxe-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. It’s new and limited edition for the holidays. It’s slim with a variety of neutrals and jewel-tones, matte and frosts, which makes it a more versatile, travel-friendly palette (though Too Faced could use more satin/pearl finishes in the range).

Too Faced Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses Palette

Too Faced Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses Palette ($34.00 for 0.55 oz.) includes three eyeshadows, two bronzers, and a lip gloss. You may recognize the eyeshadows from Too Faced’s The Chocolate Bar. Both bronzers have routinely been featured in other palettes and are available individually as well. The lipgloss is a new formula called “La Creme Lip Gloss” that will officially debut next spring. The palette has a strong, chocolaty scent, so if you don’t dig sweet chocolate smells, you may want to look at other Too Faced offerings this holiday.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette ($58.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a trio of Hourglass’ blushes, including one shade (Incandescent Electra) that’s exclusive to the palette. Luminous Flush and Mood Exposure were very similar to the individual, permanent versions I have, though they varied slightly as is the nature of the product (swirled, so yours may be lighter or darker, depending on how much the blush and illuminator portions are). The Mood Exposure in the trio has more of the illuminator showing, but the general composition, look, feel, and so forth, are in the line with the standalone shades. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes have a very soft, finely-milled feel that’s silky and a little powdery in the pan, but they don’t look powdery applied. They have good color payoff that’s buildable as well as blendable, so you can always take it down a notch if you prefer or go for full-coverage.
