Luxurious Grande Hotel Café opens its doors to introduce you its three Christmas pallets with two kinds of coffee and cookies. There are 18 matte and shimmer shadows, two blushes, a bronzer and the brand’s best-seller Mascara Better Than Sex in the set!

It is not the first time when I find Mascara Better Than Sex in different sets. And my regular readers know that I don’t like this mascara at all. If you have rare, thin, straight eyelashes, this mascara is not for you. But it can make nice long eyelashes much better! Although then any mascara can do this)

There are three palettes in the set. The first is Too Faced Eggnog Latte and it’s my most favorite palette from the set.

This palette contains two light matte shades and four shades which have different degrees of shimmerity. Matte shades are well pigmented. But the unequivocal favorite of this palette is the shade Cold Brew. Using it solo you can make gorgeous elegant makeup that is suitable for all occasions.

Also pay attention to the shades Central Perk and Eggnog Latte. The first is very beautiful emerald hue that fits well for evening makeup. And the second lightens perfectly and thanks to a golden tint fit for anything. Beautiful peach-coral shade of blush is very gentle but it is much pigmented so be careful applying the blush.

The next palette is called Too faced Peppermint Mocha. There are many pink shades in this palette.

I use this palette less than others as for most Russian women these shades are not suitable. But here I should note the shade Coffe Chip, with which you get beautiful Smokey makeup. Such clear pink shade of blush can refresh perfectly and is suitable for many girls. It gives satin finish.

The last palette Too Faced Cookie is also my favorite. At first colors scared me, especially rich gold, but just look how they harmoniously look all together.

The most interesting shades for me are Winter Dream and Cup of Joe. Cup of Joe shimmers very beautifully and it is just difficult to describe.

Bronzer contains shimmer and it is more brick shade than reddish.

As usual Too Faced adds the palette with a help book, which is very useful for those who don’t know how to combine shades in your makeup.

How do you like this set? Would you buy it? Which palette do you like more and which is not worth to be bought?
