This was a huge disappointment. I was really excited for this palette initially, as I'm always on the look out for a good multi-purpose palette that is reasonably small (so as not to clutter an already full makeup bag) compact and portable, something I can use to do my eye makeup on my morning commute, and for touch ups throughout the day. On paper, this ticked all the boxes, and seemed like it had a nice selection of shades. The packaging is nifty, has sturdy construction, and is very cute looking. The top opens upwards for the shadows and a good sized mirror considering the size of the compact, and the bottom slides forward for blush, bronzer and gloss.
It's the product quality that lets this palette down. The eye shadows are poorly pigmented, especially in the paler shades, the very glittery ones are gritty and caused eye irritation when I wore them, plus the glittery shades have MASSIVE fallout. The matte brown and shimmery grey shades were just ok, but still nothing to write home about.
The blush and bronzer was chalky, powdery and applied ridiculously patchy and had an awful caked on appearance . Probably some of the worst blushers I've ever used. I'm not much of a lip gloss person, so I didn't end up wearing it all that much, but the powdery, chalky residue from the blush and bronzer would cake up over the top of the gloss, and I would have to repeatedly scrape the top of it out.
I've had great results with other Too Faced products, love the Lip of Luxury and La Creme lipsticks, get great pigmentation from the eyeshadow singles, so it was a bit weird and quite unexpected that this palette was so very awful.

I got this at Sephora and thought the 20 dollar price was pretty reasonable. I usually have to do my makeup at work so I thought this would be perfect to throw in my bag and not have to lug around tons of different products...while this palette is alright, i was pretty disappointed in the eyeshadows..they don't have very good pigmentation. I do like the lip gloss and the blush is alright too. I do use this occasionally but I do not think I would repurchase another one of these.

I really like this pallette, I have had since around november and find it handy to travel with.I like the colors for the eyeshadow, but LOVE the blush and bronzer, the show up quite nice on my fair skin.

Iíve owned this palette for a couple of months. The eye shadows are not my favorites, mostly because of the pigmentation. I am quite pale and some of the lighter shades do not really show up on my skin. The eye shadows in the other Too Faced kits I own are better pigmented than the ones in this kit. But I really like the blush and lip gloss, especially because they are both matte. I can use the bronzer as a highlight but not as a bronzer considering how shimmery it is. I donít reach a lot for this palette, and when I do itís because I want to use the blush or the lip gloss. It is a decent palette, but not my favorite.

In all fairness,I knew what to expect,since I already owned GTG II,which I bought because I couldn't find this one, no less. Typically, when I did find this, I had to have it, even though I already should' ve gotten the memo: I wasn't missing much.
Not that this one's bad, it's not at all. It's a fun, practical palette; but not a great one, shade wise. Unlike GTG II which at least packed some very useful eye shades, this (and you can tell by just looking at the picture) somehow only offers the two extremes: some light shades that are not much use for anything other than highlighting plus look more or less the same on, and a couple of very dark, rich ones that I can personally only use on the crease or as a liner. Other than that you get a bright copper/bronze which is good, a very glittery light taupe which is almost the same as MCRA by UD, with the same uncontrollable fallout exactly, and a very light blue that contributes to the pretty factor, but is not easy to incorporate into complete looks. So this palette is not very easy to put a whole look together with, because it lacks one or two good eyelid shades; which kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
As for as the rest of the palette goes, this one's better than GTG II (which packs 4 glosses and one blush). It contains one your lips but better gloss that's actually worth the space it takes up, a hot pink blush that I suppose would look nice on most skin tones with a light hand, and a bronzer which I haven't used much but seems ok so far.
This was cheap considering how much it offers, I wouldn't buy it again though.

Got this on toofaced vintage sale, price was reasonable-$15 i think i cant remember for sure.
Packaging is wonderful and it takes up very little room. Nice sized mirror, and decent amount of product in each pan.
However the eye shadows are lacking in my opinion. The black has alot of fallout and the lighter shades dont have much pigmentation. The brown is nice, but thats the only one I like. Blush is a good shade for me. Bronzer is not much of one, its to light and shimmery ( I dont like shimmer bronzers). The lip gloss is ok, it smells nice but not fantastic.
All in all its a good palette to take camping or on the road without taking up to much space. However it's not something i could not live without. I'd say that the product packaging is what is most awesome about it.

The only thing I don't like about this is that the lipgloss is right next to the blush. I keep dipping my brush into the gloss when I'm using the blush. Otherwise, I like the palette.

Picked this up at Urban Outfitters off 86st (for all you UESiders like myself) love the packaging.
Bottom Shelf: Like the cutesy pink blush. It actually looks like a genuine post work out flush on me. Hate the shimmery bronzer, wish it came with "chocolate soleil" instead. Love the lip gloss in "fairy wings". I'd repurchase that if it came as a single.
Top Flap: Pretty decent sized mirror. Eyeshadows are meh. The pale matte pink was too soft/powdery w NO color pay off on. Pretty much only use the matte brown (works for my brows too) & the black. The rest are ok, but not for me. I put them on my daughters for dress up, because I'm not big on shimmer. Then why would I purchase you ask? After all, its the Fairy Edition n fairy = shimmer. Well ladies, I am an impulse buyer. Had to spend that extra 19.50 on sutm! Essentially I carry this around for the mirror n lip gloss n to keep my 3 yr old entertained in the supermarket.

I really like this palette. Its compact and neat. It has almost everything you need to create an everyday look. It took this to school everyday while I was doing a temp job. I got up early and did not have time to do my makeup on mornings so I used to take this and one of my Stila travel palettes. The matte colors are not chalky, the brown is phenomenal. The shimmery taupe colour is beautiful and does not have the fall out like UD MCRA. The blue shade is nice but the staying power leaves more to be desired.
The blush is very nice but I'm not a fan of the gloss or the bonzer. That bronzer is too light for it to be used as such on my skin, so it works as a highlighter. The gloss is kinda goopy and not as pigmented. Its kind of the generic lipglosses you'd expect to get in a palette.
But I do enjoy the shadows and the blush. Its still a nice purchase.

I received this from my boyfriends mom for Christmas.
Its a nice little palette, with most of the colors being decently pigmented, except the matte pink. The bronzer is far too dark for me and too shimmery, but the blush and lipgloss are great. I use this quite frequently and I really like it.

I purchased this product in December right before xmas and I LOVE IT. It has some really good color combos and the bronzer and blush make it a go to kit to take with you. The only thing I didnt like was the light pink matte eyeshadow. It is too powdery and falls right off. BUT other then that I LOVE IT. :]

Product - Nice color selection overall, and not too bright or flashy (or trendy) for this ol' dame. There are a lot of color combinations packed into this small package.
Packaging - Two tier plastic compact with full size mirror under the lid. Top tier is revealed by flipping up the lid and has eight square pans of eyeshadow. Bottom tier is the base of the compact which pulls forward to reveal a wide rectangular pan of blush on the left, a skinny rectangular pan of lip gloss in the center, and a wide rectangular pan of bronzer on the right. Working the bottom tier takes a little getting used to. Lid graphic is in vintage-style artwork. No wasted space in this compact, which I greatly appreciate. Sturdy feel.
Overall - Cute and playful, yet also functional. Attractively priced at $19.50.
