Too Faced Le Grand Chateau

Once holiday beauty sets start coming around, I'm almost obsessive about checking on all the new releases until I can narrow down my holiday list to a few special things I just can't live without! One of the collections that really caught my eye this year was Too Faced's Holiday Collection. Too Faced always has adorable holiday packaging, but I thought they just hit it out of the park this year with the Christmas in Paris theme.
Purchased by me
This adorable (and oh-so-chic) little château opens to reveal three separate palettes with 18 gorgeous shadows, two blushes, one bronzer, and a deluxe size of our bestselling Better Than Sex Mascara. A romantic evening in St. Tropez; a sunny day in Côte d'Azur; a stroll along the Seine at night—there’s a palette for every party, mood, or taste. It’s the perfect gift for any mademoiselle—or gift each palette separately to spread the love! Retails $49. Available at, Sephora, Ulta, HSN.

I'm absolutely in love with the doll house in this set! It has a magnetized front and is perfect for any little girl to play with while you're enjoying your gorgeous makeup palettes! I thought this was a pretty good value for $49 as it contains 3 small to medium sized palettes with 6 eyeshadows, a blush/bronzer product and a mini Better than Sex mascara. 
I did a lot of researching on the Too Faced Holiday collection this year as there were 3 sets that contained palettes and I knew I couldn't buy them all. I wanted to narrow it down and pick one (maybe two!) that I just love. The reviews for this one were mixed from my go to sources (Temptalia and Beauty Broadcast) but based on customer reviews on sites like Sephora, this seems to be a hit. Their biggest holiday set this year is Le Grand Palais and although it is the most expensive at $58.00, it seems to have gotten the worst reviews for the trio. I did look at Le Grand Palais which is exclusive to Sephora and the shades seemed too sparkly for me and looked like they had a lot of fall out, so that was an easy pass for me. Plus, I'd rather have 3 smaller palettes that are easier to travel with than one larger one. 
Upon first glance, this palette above was my least favorite of the three included but I'm pleasantly surprised with how much use I'm going to get out of this. The bronzer is a great color for my fair skintone and I like that I can create a softer look with this. 
These are the types of colors that just speak to me, so this one is my favorite of the bunch! 
I'm loving this blush in here. It creates such a nice soft natural look!

Also included is a mini Better than Sex mascara. This isn't my favorite mascara formula out there, but it is something I find to be decent so I'm glad there was another little goodie in here.

The last of the holiday palettes from Too Faced is La Petite Maison which is $39 and is exclusive to Ulta. I'm still debating getting this one or not. It contains 12 eyeshadows and cute as can be packaging. I'm so happy with the Le Grand Chateau that I may not splurge for another set from Too Faced, but who knows!

Did you purchase any of these from Too Faced this year? Which one is your favorite? Comment and let me know, I'd love to hear from you!
