Too Faced Everything Nice palette review

               Hello everyone!I hope you all had fun in the holidays! I know it has been a while since I last posted on the blog and I apologize for that but with the new year new inspiration and joy are going to fill up this blog! For the first post of the year a review of an amazing holiday set/palette seemed quite appropriate. Only recently I discovered the awesomeness of the brand Too Faced and I have been totally hooked. About a month ago I got the new holiday set called "Everything Nice" and I couldn't be more thrilled about it. I had never used the brands's eyeshadows so I was a bit worried about their payoff, pigmentation and fall out. But boy did they prove me wrong! 
               But first thing's first; before I talk more in depth about the actual palette, I have to add that this set is amazing because besides the palette it also includes a glittery fuchsia make up bag (perfect for travelling) and one of the brand's hit products; the "Better than Sex" mascara! For a while now I have heard a lot about how lovely and good quality it is therefore, I was very excited to get to try it as an extra in this holiday set.
           Now lets get started with the palette itself shall we? The "Everything Nice" name couldn't describe this palette better, since it has a little bit of everything that need to make a girl feel and look "nice". First of all it consists of 20 eyeshadows-yes 20!- ranging from nude to jewel colors such as emerald green and sapphire blue, and from matte to  shimmery and glittery ones. The colors are simply beautiful. As it happens with more palettes the matte ones are a bit less pigmented and more sheer than the shimmer/glittery ones. Perfect for a daytime look or for blending/base the matte shadows are by far my favorite. The golden shades are beautiful for a subtle night look and the bright ones at the last row are for a more daring and glamorous look. I am not going to lie but at first I got scared and thought to myself  I will never wear the last row as I would somehow manage to look like a clown, however once I swatched them on my hand I realized they are far less strong and bold than they seem. Of course they are buildable and you can go as intense as you like but just with a little gentle tap of your brush you can create a lovely subtle look. On the following swatches you can see for yourself the pigmentation and payoff as well as how sheer the matte nude ones are.

             Moving  onto the second part of the palette, you get 2 lovely blushes, a peachy one which is perfect for the summertime (at least for me) and a pinky one which is perfect for all year round. Besides that, you also get a nude/peachy highlighter and the very popular chocolate soleil bronzer. God I love this bronzer!Just the fact that it is made with real cocoa powder and smells like hot chocolate has had me sold! Four perfect products for every season and every need from highlighting to bronzing! Finally, you get three mini basic brushes of the high, cruelty free quality that Too Faced is known for. A lovely one for blush, contouring and highlighting and two for the eyes-one of them is angled which makes it perfect for the brows as well. As a cute touch, you get a mini booklet with step to step directions on how to create three looks with the palette!

              In all, this is an amazing palette as it combines products for the eyes and the face as well as high quality, travel size make up brushes. I would recommend it in a heartbeat as with it you can create a great range of looks for all occasions! Many shades and many textures. It's a set that has to be a part of your collection. Also it is a great introduction to the brand itself. Comment down below and let me know if you have this set and what are your thoughts on it! I hope you all have an amazing 2015!

Till next time take care dolls ;) Xxx
