Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette First Impressions!

Hey beaut's!

I had been lusting after the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette ever since I saw glimpses of it on Twitter a few months ago, so as soon as Debenhams added the Too Faced Christmas collection to their website I snapped that little palette up quicker than you can even say gingerbread (lol)! Unfortunately for me when my palette arrived (very quickly might I add) it was completely smashed and the Debenhams customer service was terrible so I ended up having to send the palette back and wait nearly 3 weeks to get my money back! Long story short - when I was in London I popped into the Too Faced store on Carnaby Street and managed to buy the palette again and I'm absolutely loving it so far!
The Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette (£39.00) comes packaged in a warm brown tin with a cute little gingerbread man on the front and a mirror on the inside of the lid, personally I love packaging, I know some might find it young or tacky but I absolutely love it and I think Too Faced always get packaging so right! Within the palette are 18 eye shadows in a good mix of winter warmer shades and autumnal hues perfect for creating lots of different looks for day and night, theres also a mix of mattes, metallics and glitters, their honestly so drool worthy! Just like all of Too Faced products this palette does indeed have a scent, although not the gingerbread scent they are claiming and that I was hoping for, mine smells just like Yankee  Candles Christmas Cookie candle which is divine but my nose definitely doesn't get the gingerbread, please tell me I'm not alone in this!
The formula of the shades I've used so far has been brilliant, I haven't experienced any fallout and they blend and last on my eyes beautifully, to be honest I have a couple of other Too Faced eyeshadow palettes and the quality always comes up trumps for me so I have high hopes for this palette! The shades I've used so far are Powdered Sugar - a matte cream great for a base shade, Gingerbread and Gingerbread Latte - both perfect mattes for the crease and transitioning, Spiked Eggnog - a gorgeous metallic champagne perfect for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners, Reindeer Paws - a deep matte brown perfect for getting things smokey and finally Warm & Toasty - a bright metallic gold, the rest of the shades I'm yet to try but so far all the shades I've used have worked like a dream! Also can we just appreciate how god damn cute all of the shade names are, I mean Reindeer Paw.... come on, cutest overload!

So far, so good with the Gingerbread Spice Palette and if your thinking of getting it yourself I'd definitely say go for it because I'm loving it so far, although you might want to dodge getting it from Debenhams lol! I will do an updated post after I've used all of the shades within the palette and given them a good test as I can see myself getting so much use out of most shades within this little gingerbread beauty!

  5. Great review! I'm slightly pleased to hear it smells more like cookies than gingerbread haha! ;) I love Toofaced palettes. Their chocolate gold is one of my absolute favourites so I'm definitely going to add this to my list, loving all the pretty shimmery shades in this! <3
