Review & Swatches: Too Faced Color Confections Collection


We’re loving what Too Faced brought to the table for the holidays this year. What’s not to love about the theme—Love, Sweet, Love? Everything has been so sugary sweet and gorgeous so far. Remember the Sweet Indulgences gift set? What about the Glamour To Go Spun Sugar Edition? See what I mean, pretty sweet, huh? Well—there’s more!

Feast your eyes on the ULTA exclusive, Color Confections Collection. This little baby is packaged in the most darling pink box with a green bow, worthy of holding yummy chocolates. But this dainty box delivers on gorgeous color instead, which won’t go to your hips.

Too Faced Color Confections Collection

What’s included…

  • 8 eye shadows for holiday parties, day to night (2 quads)
  • 2 luminous bronzers for a glowing complexion
  • 2 blushes for a warm flush or a rosy blooming effect
  • 3 must-have lip colors

Too Faced Color Confections Collection

Super cute, right?

The clear cut winners for me were both of the eyeshadow quads here. Both have fantastic pigment payoff and feel very velvety, even if I did have a little fallout with two of the shades. (The deep olive shade in quad one, and the metallic grey in quad two.) It wasn’t so much of a nuisance that it would sway me from a purchase, however.

The lip gloss shades are super pretty and have a creamy texture, but you may find the pans a little small since they’re not deep—so consider them a nice bonus. Another thing that really killed it in this set though, were the blushes. They are FANTASTIC! Perfectly pigmented and blendable, for a gorgeous boost of color on the cheeks. For an under $30 budget, this is the perfect thing to gift a makeup maven in your life. I don’t think they’ll be disappointed!

    Wow that chocolate shadow with the green shimmer is gorgeous. I would buy that quad in a heartbeat if it were for sale separately. Really hate palettes with lip gloss though, especially when there is no cover for them, and these are between two sections of powder products so even more contamination than if they were to one side..

    I totally feel you on that!

    I would be all over that, if it weren’t for the pans of (uncovered) lip gloss. My pet peeve in an otherwise pressed powder palette!
