Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set Review & Swatches
The Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set ($45) is a limited edition set that features two palettes released with the Too Faced Holiday 2013 Collection. You get two eyeshadow palettes entitled Be Merry and Be Bright each containing six shadows each as well as two cheek colors and a full size Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara.
This a great set to break up and gift to two separate people if you want (chances are you’ll just want to keep both yourself though!).
Take a look!
At $45 this is a truly value considering just purchasing the mascara alone would set you back $21 dollars! This includes twelve total shadows, four face products, full size mascara, and a bag!
The makeup bag was designed by celebrity designer Mary McDonald and the collection is a collaboration between Jerrod Blandino, founder of Too Faced Cosmetics, and Mary McDonald.
Across the board this is a stand out set with little trouble with any of the products in the collection. I had a small issue with Chocolate Moon which was a little drier than other shades in the collection but aside from that all the shadows apply like butter with very little fall out and absolutely no issues creasing or fading. Pigmentation is incredible on these shadows as with most all Too Faced Palettes. Too Faced rarely skimps on the quality of palettes so what you get in a single shade of shadow is the same quality as what you’d get in a palette. The shadows have an almost creamy-like texture and have a liquid metal, foiled look on lids.
The palettes are a cooler and a warmer set and each contains one bronzer and one blush each along with six shadows. The Too Faced Be Bright Palette is the cooler selection of shades and includes:
- Bright Eyes
- Starry Night
- Inner Light
Wish, Bright, Sequin
Marshmallow, Mauvelous, Starry Night
Inner Light Highlighter/Bronzer and Lollipop Blush
The Too Faced Be Merry Palette includes:
- Egg Nog
- Very Merry
- Buttered Rum
- Brown Sugar
- Chocolate Moon
- Peachy Keen
Egg Nog, Very Merry, Buttered Rum
Bubbly, Brown Sugar, Chocolate Moon
Spice Bronzer and Peachy Keen Blush
Inside each palette the mirror has been replaced with two instructional diagrams to create two looks using the palette so the two palettes can create four looks each using these guides (or endless looks using your imagination).
The shadows have an exceptional formula but the blushes and bronzers aren’t too shabby either. All four face powders have great pigmentation, a silky, easy to blend formula, and a long wear formula. As a lover of Orgasm-like shades Peachy Keen Blush particularly stands out for me as it’s a beautiful glow-y peach!
Overall, the Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set is an exceptional value for getting or gifting. This a quality palette with excellent powder products that apply, wear, and perform beautifully! I love that I can easily break the set up and gift one to a friend and keep one for myself if I want! Although I happen to be a greedy beauty junkie so I’ll just keep both for myself….!
Wearing the Be Merry Palette on eyes and and cheeks!
