Too Faced Dream Queen Limited-Edition Make Up Collection Safe Skip in My Makeup Life

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Too Faced Dream Queen Make Up Collection ($58) arrives for Holiday 2018 on September 15 for Sephora Rouge Members only (everyone else can snag it on September 17th) at and in stores and I feel like it’s such a safe skip in my makeup life. This is the first year I’m going to call it a day and not purchase the Too Faced Sephora Exclusive Palette! They do have an upcoming Gingebread scented eyeshadow palette and that will happily come home with me as it looks interesting but this one? Not so much! I’m sort of done with this massive Holiday palettes because they are so hard to store and the quality is mediocre. I know a lot of people really enjoyed the Too Faced Boss Lady Beauty Agenda from last year but I honestly wasn’t impressed with it.

I do feel like it is my responsibility as a blogger to buy and review all of these palettes but this year I think I’ll focus on items I think might have better quality. I mean I can’t say if the Dream Queen Make Up Collection will or won’t be impressive but with the Too Faced Holiday track record, well, let’s just say it seems an easy skip for me. And I feel like I can do a lot more with $60 bucks.

Here’s what you do get for those interested:

  • Blush in Sweet On Santa (peach pearl) and Winterberry (dusty rose with gold sparkle)
  • Bronzer in Chestnuts Roasting (warm bronze)
  • Highlighter in Snow Extra (champagne pearl)
  • Deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara
  • Dreamy Lips Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Shade Pink Swan
  • Travel-Size Hangover Spray
  • Bronzer, Cool-Toned Blush, Warm-Toned Blush, Gold-Toned Highlighter
  • Fold Over Makeup Bag

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    This honestly looks like every other holiday palette they’ve ever done. Bunch of neutrals with a pink, a green, and a purple. Like… do they just throw the towel in for the holiday stuff?

    • Isabella Muse

      LOL yea it seems that way beth! Like wham bam thank you here’s a holiday collection!

  • kjh

    Good call. I got the gingerbread man lip last year. He is being retreaded. No other tf wants/needs, but will be interested to see how the gingerbread palette performs for you.

  • Carol G

    I agree! Quality not there and the palettes are too big. Not buying any holiday collections.

  • Hollie

    I feel like these megapalettes are becoming more and more targeted as Chrismas wishlist items for tweens

    • Isabella Muse

      Yes, I agree! Maybe we are just getting too old to appreciate them! Someone commented in this post (I can’t see all the comments from my dashboard) that said there are new makeup users daily and they’ll be excited about it and that’s sort if how I try to see it. Because I think if I was new to Tarte as a customer I’d probably be OMG I need this. But as a seasoned Tarte user it’s just very uneventful to me.

  • Cindy

    It’s cute but if it’s exclusive to Sephora I won’t bother. I’m looking for good holiday stuff to spend my Ulta points on! I think I’m definitely going for that Gingerbread palette if Ulta has it.

  • Anita

    I too wonder if I am just getting old, holiday palettes have definitely lost their appeal. Back in the day (last decade?) I remember getting so excited about the MAC holiday collection every year, the quality of those collections has definitely gone downhill. It feels like there is more competition in holiday palettes and so many brands are compromising on quality to get their share of Xmas spend. I have more makeup than I could ever reasonably use, products have to be very high quality for me to use them on a frequent basis. So I would rather buy a lovely Chanel lipstick or an Hourglass face powder that I know I will love and use more than once!

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh gosh me too! I always felt like I had to have the entire MAC holiday collection but yes, the shadows are really not that great anymore! This, exactly this! For $58 I might as well buy a good quality eye cream or something else I knew I’ll get good use of!

  • Susan K

    Yeah I haven’t done a big holiday palette or set last few years. Too cumbersome and the quality isnt there like everyone said. But…what is that dreamy lips ultra plush lip gloss? Is it new? Sounds nice!

  • Sara

    I bought it a couple weeks ago at the Chicago store. It’s amazing. The bad is adorable. It was worth it for the packaging alone. Shadows are super pretty.

  • diane

    that gloss color is so pretty but i am so with you. i’m over the hype of these holiday palettes and i feel like the too faced sephora ones are the same, or super similar shades repeated every year.

  • Kelly

    I would love for someone to gift this to me, I love the swans they did this year, but I have too many similar eyeshadows to justify buying it! We’ll see if I cave! Haha! Going to focus more on the opi nutcracker collection coming out! Can’t wait for that!

    • Isabella Muse

      I think we’ll see a lot more nutcracker stuff as we get nearer to xmas 😀

  • Paige Shaw

    The only holiday thing I’m remotely interested in from TF is the collection of holiday scented matte liquid lipsticks. That’s all, folks!
