Too Faced Pixie Perfect Holiday Set

Hi All! It has been too long since my last post. Sorry I have been such a slacker. During the holiday season things tend to get a little crazy. However, with the holidays, come special holiday make up sets! There are sooo many to choose from this year but I think I found the perfect one. The Too Faced Pixie Perfect Holiday Set is not only the perfect mix of items to carry around in your purse at all times but, I looove the design they released this year.
I love the colors and the pretty flowers, butterflies and fairies. It is so girly! I also really love the texture of the make up that Too Faced Cosmetics produces. Their eye shadows and blushes always seem to go on so smoothly. Once you open your bag there is travel sized lash injection mascara, a travel sized shadow insurance, a LE eyeshadow quad and blush/bronzer duo, and a glamour gloss.
 Look at how pretty the compacts are alone! Here is what it looks like opened.
The blush/bronzer duo is my favorite. It is Snow Bunny and Papa Don't Peach. I am huge bronzer fanatic and it is always nice when I don't have to bring an additional compact with me when I go out of the house. The eye shadows have all been released in the Natural and Naked Eyeshadow sets they put out before but, they have all been re-purposed here. I really like these neutrals colors...You have a good high-light, a little shimmer and a nice matte. They include Velvet Revolver, Enchanted Forest, Totally Toasted, and Peach Fuzz.

And here is a swatch of the eyeshadow quad.

I am a MAC NC 20 for reference. They just glide on so nicely.

And last but not least, is a close up of the lip gloss, mascara, and shadow insurance. I can't really do a swatch of those items but at least you can see what a beautiful color the lip gloss is.

The lip gloss reminds me of a NARS orgasm color but with a nicer smell.

What are your thoughts on this set? It was very affordable at only $42 and I purchased it with my Sephora VIB discount so I think I got a pretty good deal:) Any Christmas make up lemmings--I have a few more but I guess I will just have to wait and see what Santa brings me this week.
