The Sweet Smell of Christmas Liquefied Lipstick Holiday Set by Too Faced Review

So I caved and bought myself not one but many things on my holiday wish list. What can I say? There’s something about holiday makeup that makes me so cheery and filled with joy.

Sweet Smell of Christmas by Too Faced. $25 at Sephora and elsewhere.

The colors in the Too Faced Sweet Smell of Christmas Liquefied Lipstick set are all tones I wear on the regular anyhow, and also if I wait for someone to figure out what I want… most likely won’t happen.

Too Faced Melted Matte in Gingerbread Man

Enough excuses for my shopping habit, and here’s my thoughts on the set;

I adore the smell. It’s sweet and reminiscent of freshly baked sugar cookies without being overly potent or sickly. It lingers on the lips but eventually fades. Gingerbread Man is definitely my favorite shade from the set and it doesn’t appear as orange is it does on the models above and below on me; it pulls more brown . I have warm light skin for reference.

The shades are true to color and last a long time on the lips. As far as how drying they are, I think that depends on whether or not you wear lip balm underneath and whether your lips are naturally dry to begin with, which mine absolutely are.

I’ve shyed away from matte lippies in the past for this reason but I’m recently liking Ulta’s moisturizing lipstick primer and CO Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine. If you want a gloss free pout then I recommend Ulta’s lip primer, plus it’s got a nice coconutty scent. The Mentha Lip Shine is a bit more hydrating though and is a breath freshener. Both are great.

What goodies have you gifted yourself?

Much love and light sent your way!!

The Three Most Covetable Holiday Gift Sets at Sephora (in my opinion)

Too Faced’s The Sweet Smell of Christmas Lipstick Collection

Too Faced’s The Sweet Smell of Christmas Lipstick Collection. $25.

I am a huge fan of Too Faced lipsticks, anything holiday scented, and can we talk about this packaging? It’s adorable as is the Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette. I’m loving the whole holiday lineup by Too Faced this year. The formula is the Melted Matte and the shades are totally wearable not only for the holidays but all year. Love it. I’ll definitely be gifting myself this set!

Of course I’d love the palette too but I can’t justify the price. I’ll probably buy it anyway! 🙄

Sephora Favorites Holiday Perfume Sampler

Sephora Favorites Holiday Perfume Sampler. $65

I’ve been getting so into perfume lately which is a passion I’ve had for a while but which faded in recent years. For some reason, it has been reignited, and I blame youtube and free samples from Ulta. I’m really into warm and sweet scents and vanilla, coffee, woodsy, and feminine notes. Occasionally I like natural fragrances like fruity coconut or apricot and also floral if it’s tasteful. It all depends on my mood.

I’m into Black Opium by YSL right now and looking for more wearable everyday fragrances. I know I already love Marc Jacob’s Daisy, so that fits the bill. I can’t wait to try Kat Von D’s Saint and Sinner and Nest’s Black Tulip. love that you get to try 15 perfumes and redeem the voucher you get in the set for a full size of your favorite. What a genius idea! I can’t wait to try them all. I’ll most definitely be buying this for myself and other perfume lovers.

Considering all the rave reviews Drunk Elephant gets, I feel like there’s no reason not to try their products. I just watched a video by Wayne Goss where he describes the amazing turnaround his skin had after a troubling period of breakouts.

My skin is very sensitive and I’ve been meaning to try these products, some of which are already on their way to me. This is such an amazing value I’m definitely getting it anyhow, as Drunk Elephant products are pretty pricey on their own.

What holiday gift sets and products are you eyeing at Sephora and hope to buy yourself or receive this holiday season?
