I love the shades in the Too Faces palette. they would be great for a daytime neutral eye with the mauve in the crease and the champagne over the lid.

I’d totally wear MUFE’s palette to make amazing looks, like a NYE’s look πŸ˜€
And Sugar & Spice is the perfect everyday palette

Thank you !

Tatiana Avatar

I’d have to start with MUFE. I would use d826 all over the lid, i544 in the crease and me122 in the inner corner)) Basically I’d use it for smokey eye looks.

Shars Avatar

I’ve been hearing so much good things about the MUFE artist shadows that I would love to try them. My first look would probably be a teal smokey eye. The teal in that palette is really pretty.

im pretty new to makeup and mostly focus on MAC lipsticks so it would be amazing to learn how to use new and different products! This next year I’m hoping to focus more on eyeshadow and tools!

By day day depending wat I am wearing, with a gold eyeliner
and a pinkish brown lipstick,
if i am going somewhere, blush and brows done
I can skip the lipstick

by night depends what I am wearing rebel lipstick, my muted matte purple blush, and gold eyeliner

Wow! Amazing giveaway =) Too Faced Sugar & Spice Set allures my attention due to a wonderful color combination of neutrals – it allows to combine four-five colors to achieve most diffused makeup and sophisticated color gradient =)

estefania Avatar

i’d use everything there mostly for dramatic and everyday looks but trying new things like doing your whole eye makeup with the too faced palette for a neutral look and adding the makeup forever jewel tones on the lower lash line for a different effect. I don’t know what to say, i’d love to use everything! =)

Sherry Avatar

Totally would wear this daily! I have decided that I am not “saving” things for special occasions but using things and enjoying them!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win πŸ™‚

Jennifer Avatar

This is so much makeup I could only dream of having. I would love to combine all of the new makeup and make looks with all of it. For example, I think it would be really pretty to do a look with Garnet Black from the MUFE palette with Nutmeg and Biscotti from the Too Faced palette, then use Lorac blush, eyeliner and mascara from the Royal Red Carpet collection and finish off the look with the Lorac Lip Lustre Creme in Reign.

Dani Avatar

Oh how I would love to win any part of that gift! This year has been a huge one for my family..we now have 4 kids under 4 ( a 3.5 year old, an almost 2 year old, and now 6 month old twins!). A very unexpected year, but we have been so blessed. I am so thankful for your blog Christine, as it helps me keep my sanity with things that interest me as a person, so I’m not always just ‘mom’. You help keep me sane! I wish you a very happy new year my Internet ‘friend’!

Lydia Avatar

If I won, I’d definitely be wearing jewel-toned shadows from the Makeup Forever Studio Case when I go to see the Lion King on Broadway with family next month! Maybe something really blown-out with the emerald and royal blue shades.

Hue Avatar

Never tried Too Faced eyeshadows! I find this palette allows to make really everyday looks. I’d go for Clove all over the lid and lower lashline, with a sparkling Champagne Truffle on the center lid, and the black shade for darkening the upper lashline and outer corner.

Kristina Avatar

I would love to try the MUFE Studio case. They’re new shadows look amazing in the swatches and I would love to break out of my safe, everyday neutrals with a fun smokey eye or accent color.

Elisa Avatar

I’d use the Lagoon Green as a liner, grounded with black tight-lining. I’d use the Pinky Beige as a base color. I have hooded eyes, so liner is the best look to show off those beautiful colors!
My New Year’s Eve look would be complete! πŸ™‚

claudia Avatar

Thanks for the giveaway, Christine.
I’d likely end up wearing a neutral daytime look, bringing the palette to work with me and touching it up with a little more smokiness for after-work dinner or drinks with friends.

Lotus Avatar

Aww, that’s such a generous giveaway for someone to start the year with! I love it but I have an uber large collection and would enjoy these, but it would be so lovely for someone else just starting or trying to make some sort of collection to work with! I wish everyone the very best of luck and to please consider this, thinking of others, when deciding if you’ll enter or not. It’s a new year coming, let it be the beginning for someone else! πŸ˜€ <3

Christine, you are the sweetest. πŸ™‚ (Wet is not enough yellow, it's similar to a muted version of Viva Glam Rhianna 2. But I thank you!

Courtney Avatar

The MUFE Studio Case is the only thing on my wishlist right now! If I don’t win it this time around, I guess I’ll just have to convince the hubs that January isn’t too early for V-Day presents…

Carolyn Campbell Avatar

I apply the (Two Faced Palette) the bone shade all over lid to brow bone. Pink on outer 2/3 lid. I’d place the beautiful burgundy shade in the crease/outer corner and blend inward, pulling the shade slightly upward ( further up in the case of hooded lids). I would place white in the inner corner. To transfer the look to evening, darken up the burgundy and line lower lashes with what’s left over on the brush. Ox

Camille R. Avatar

I would kind of make a gradient with 3 makeup palette: “pink frosting” on the eyelid, “sugared violet” in outer corner and eyelid hollow rouge “chocolate cake”. To make the own makeup, I would put the make “coconut cream” (below the eyebrows in particular). To illuminate the inner corner of the eye I would put the make “champagne truffle.”

Leeya Avatar

I would definitely start to incorporate more colors into my makeup looks with these sets. I have especially wanted to start to use more MUFE items, and this would get me started with them. The blues in the Studio Case look super fun to work with, and I think I’d enjoy playing with them quite a lot.

Jackie Garcia Avatar

the too faced palette would be awesome! I’ve been looking for a good taupe eyeshadow like the one on the bottom. I’d totally do a nude eyeshadow look with a red lipstick and the red gloss from Lorac Royal Lustre.

Faiza Avatar

I will use too faced sugar and spice palette , coconut cream for brow bone highlight , pink frosting near the tear duct, apply clove just over the crease and blend it really well until it is barely there , then add up chocolate cake in the crease and blend that too , apply cinnamon sugar on the middle of lid and sugared boiled on the outer part , apply a black liner πŸ™‚ phew tried my best

April Avatar

I would definitely wear the garnet shade in the last column from the Make Up Forever palette blended out with the taupey brown in the first column and then smudge that beautiful purple on the lower lashline. Yesss.

Laura Avatar

I wanted that Too Faced palette and it sold out so quickly that I missed it! So sad. I thought it would make such pretty everyday looks. I especially loved that lilac shadow.

CatG Avatar

I’d love to create a dramatic look using the Lorac Liquid Lustre Eye Shimmer on the inner eye, along with the Chateau eyeshadow and ultra black eye pencil!

Aishia Campbell-Rutledge Avatar

In efforts to extend products that I used – I decided to purchase Lorac Pro 2 – fell in love…then I tried Smokey Eyes by Too Faced and fell in love again. Needless to say it’s been a worldwin as I’ve been on the hunt since Sept in trying Too Faced products.

Carla Pavon Avatar

I’d use it for daily looks and of course will try the shinmery ones for night! But mostly this palette will become a daily need for my makeup!!

Jennifer Avatar

The Too Faced palette is so beautiful and I love neutral colors. That matte purple on the bottom row would be perfect for the crease along with the violet color on the top right corner for the lids. I think I could deff mix two of that dark chocolate matte color with that matte grey for my brows. Yes! Multi-functional colors.

Alison Avatar

Thanks, Christine for this giveaway. What I would do with these palettes? I would use the pale cool neutrals in the Too-Faced palette to lighten and brighten the whole eye area and then use the more vibrant colors in the MUFE case as an accent by applying the blue, turquoise or purple at the center of the upper eye lid to add drama. Great look!

Raquel Avatar

I’d create a chocolatey smokey eye with the Too Face palette’s Nutmeg as the base lid color and chocolate cake in the crease with a dab of Black Licorice at the outer corner for nighttime drama. Finish off the eye with the Lorac Royal Red Carpet eyeliner and mascara and lip stick for a fabulous look!

Lisa Avatar

The Too Faced looks perfect for daily wear with subtle but buildable colours… The MUFE kit would be ideal for my new for at into bolder colours and ideal for a night out or a party! Super fun to play with!!

Krista Avatar

I would use the MUFE Studio Case Palette. I would use Sand to put it on my Inner corner of my eye and under the browbone as a highlight. Pink Granite as my main color and it’ll be on the lid. Fig as my transition color. Garnet Black to deepen my crease area. Black on the outer V of my eye and Blueberry at the bottom lashes for a POP! of color! πŸ™‚

Amira Avatar

I would use the Make Up For Ever Studio Case to create my New Years Eve look and I would use the smokey eye section without the creeks color with shimmer and replace it with one of the bold colors which would be the royal blue shimmer shade and gold little to use as a eye liner with a fun nude shade.

memphislily Avatar

The Two Faced Sugar and Spice palette is perfect for office looks to create a simple neutral eye when I’m crushed for time or a daytime smokey eye on casual Fridays!! For a bolder look, I’d use shades from the Lorac Pro palette or MUFE case on those nights I hang out with my girls or a bold lip. Thanks for such a great giveaway! Happy New Year!

Donna Lee Avatar

I am jazzed about the chance to win the elusive Lorac palette. I have the unzipped palette and love it. I work in a conservative industry, so I would wear what I call a toned down smokey.

Diana Avatar

I’d be able to wear these both day and night. The colors are so wearable! I’d do a soft, natural look for day. For evening, I’d make my eyes smokey with the purple/plum colors.

diane tycangco Avatar

Too Faced Sugar and Spice kit

I would wear Coconut Cream as a highlight, Cinnamon Sugar in the inner portion, Sugared Violet in the outer V, Nutmeg in the outer crease.

Samantha Avatar

I would wear the MUFE with the Lorac lip for a daily look. The Lorac rep carpet would be for a night time look and the Too Faced set would be perfect for weekend wear.

Claudia Davis Avatar

I think any of the combinations in this palette would be a great daytime wear ensemble. I also think adding a bit of glitter or smokey eye effect would be best at night. I have used Too Faced for such a long time because their products are excellent. They were the first palettes I ever bought for eye shadows in fact!

Rachel H Avatar

I love neutral looks and this palette seems like it’d be great for that and also for playing it up when I feel like putting in a little extra effort. The versatility is definitely a draw for me!

Charlotte Avatar

I would love some new shades to play with for the new year! And maybe, a new year’s resolution could be to go outside of my comfort zone and try some new colors and shades!

Denise Avatar

I would use the Too Faced Sugar and Spice set to my first year of clinical fellowship to become an SLP. I think that the shades are very wearable and they would be perfect for everyday wear and not loud as to not distract patients, caretakers, etc! (I’m pretty excited about my clinicals!)

Crystal Kirby Avatar

I would use the light shimmers during the day,with a soft lip,then at night if I was going out,transition to the beautiful violets in the outer corner,with a stronger lip and bolder liner-this palette literally has it all! I

Lauren Avatar

It’s hard to say! The Sugar & Spice palette looks very versatile and has lots of golds and pinky tones that I tend to go for with my every day look. I suppose I’d try and spruce things up with a darker smoked plum look with some of the darker shades.

Amythest Avatar

I’m totally into the cute, natural Korean eye look right now, so I’d use that gorgeous Champagne Truffle colour on my lid, deepen up the outer half with Cinnamon Sugar, and then deepen my outer v and line the outer half of my bottom lash line with Chocolate Cake. I’d use pink frosting on as my inner eye highlight and on the inner half of my bottom lash line for a cute, sparkly touch!

Nancy T Avatar

Oh, what I could do with that Too Faced palette to brighten up my green peepers! So useful, plus I would truly be a very appreciative and happy winner!

Evelyn Y Bucci Avatar

I had to throw all of my makeup away. It had spots and weird stuff in it so I was afraid to use it so I threw it out. Needless to say, I am 61 years old and I desperately need makeup. I thought with all of these contests I could win the makeup. I barely have $5 to my name so I could not afford to buy it. I swear I have practically entered every contest and I have won absolutely nothing! Please help me, I do not know what else I can do!

Kris Avatar

The colors in the palette are so neutral with other popular colors mixed into it, I would truly be honored to wear this with almost anything on a daily basis. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this sweepstakes!

Maddie Avatar

I’m in love with the Biscotti color! I’d love a look with that on the lid, with chocolate cake in the crease and nutmeg as a highlight! or a halo eye with brown sugar and chocolate cake!
(they all sound delicious too! πŸ™‚ )

Melody R Avatar

I don’t have time to really explore the hobbies I’d like to, so makeup is my artistic outlet. I’d look forward to creating all kinds of looks – it would be a way to look forward to getting ready for the day!

Sherry B. Avatar

I don’t know exactly how I would wear it, as I don’t yet own it, but I would love to experiment every way possible with the Makeup4Ever suitcase!

Claire Avatar

Would love to use it to experiment with more day time smokey eyes using a few more colours than the two that I use already. I would also like to try out mixing my mattes and shimmers together more than I already do as well as my shimmers on shimmers.
