Too Faced Dreamer Collection for Holiday 2011 - Pictures & Information - (Sweet Dreams, Beautiful Dreamer, In Your Dreams)

 Too Faced Cosmetics has announced their new collection for Holiday 2011. They are known for making great gift sets with super cute packaging, usually involving several shadows and a primer potion. Too Faced makes wonderful collectors items because of the elaborate-themed packaging combined with great quality shadows and even a few bonus items thrown in, all priced at well below their normal range.

So, are you ready to see what's in these amazing holiday sets? Here's the breakdown!

Update: 7am September 3rd 2011, Just received an email from Sephora saying this collection is now available to purchase : ) 

**Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection ($52) 
This is an exclusive holiday color collection of Too Faced's most popular shades and luxurious formulas. The dreamy set features 15 pigment-drenched ethereal shadows, a full-size Shadow Insurance primer for crease-proof, long-wearing benefits, two beautiful blushes, a sunny bronzer, and a warm, golden highlighter for the flawless complexion. Thanks to Too Faced, dreams really do come true.

  • Set Contains:
    • 15  Eye Shadows:  The Buff, Peach Fuzz, Copper Peony, Teddy Bear, Lovey Dovey, Satin Sheets, Cut The Cake, Party Girl, Nice Ash, Smolder, Honeymoon, Label Whore, Nice Stems!, Cap A Teal, First Dance 0.03 oz each
    • Chocolate Soleil Bronzer 0.14 oz
    • Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder 0.14 oz
    • 2 Blushes:  Blush in Cocoa Rose, Sweet Pink 0.08 oz each
    • Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer 0.35 oz
    • 3 Step-by-Step how-to get the look cards

This set also comes playfully packaged in a large, mirrored, decorative palette with a pull-out drawer. 

  • The Breakdown and Mini Product Review:
    • You are getting 15 shadows, which I think these alone would be well worth the $50 something dollars because I find Too Faced shadows to be amazingly creamy and long-wearing. You're also getting their Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, which I picked as my favorite high-end bronzer in my glamatronic makeup awards. It's a medium, matte bronzer that smells like chocolate. You get their Candelight highlighter powder, which gives an amazing natural glow and 2 blushes. Finally, you get the full size shadow insurance, which is a cult favorite. I would definitely pick this set over the others if you aren't sure which to get. This is the best value for your money and it includes some of Too Faced best products and beautiful packaging. 
  •  Who To Gift It To?
  • This is the gift you would get for your makeup obsessed friends/girlfriend/wife and friends who are a sucker for cute packaging.

**In Your Dreams Makeup Collection ($39)
Too Faced In Your Dreams Collection is a big and fanciful palette that contains three complete looks. This playful palette offers nine eye shadows, three blushes, and three lip shades that can be combined to create three distinct looks: "Natural Beauty," "Feminine Flirty," or "Seductively Smokey." Featured step-by-step face charts make application fun and simple.
  • This set contains: 
    • 9  Eye Shadows: Silk Stockings, La Cage, Rapture, Pink Peacock, Swing, Fishnet, Full Moon, Dream On, Seduce 0.03 oz each
    • 3  Blushes: Wanna Play?, Girly Show, You Hold The Key 0.15 oz each
    • 3  Lip Glosses: Give It Up, Pink Ice, Heart On  0.02 oz each
  • Set Breakdown:
    • This set is a decent value. If you want something a bit smaller and don't think you would use the 15 eyeshadows or a bronzer and highlighter, this one includes 9 shadows plus blushes and lip glosses. Their palette lip glosses are usually okay - they aren't really bad like a lot of set glosses are, but they aren't amazing either. I'm just basing this off of previous too faced palette glosses, not this exact palette, so it's possible the formula is different, but I would guess it's the same. 
  •  Who to Gift this to?
    • The packaging on this is also super cute and would be a nice gift for a teens. 

**Beautiful Dreamer Makeup Collection ($46)
A pink patent makeup bag filled with a magical Christmas collection of Too Faced's eye, lip, and cheek bestsellers. This six-piece set features two limited-edition mirrored compacts, Shadow Insurance Candlelight for crease-proof, fade-proof intense color pay-off with a subtle warm shimmer, a full-size Lashgasm mascara, and a full-size lip gloss in a sexy, crystal pink, all packaged in a pretty pink bag fit for a princess.
  • This set contains: 
    • Sun Bunny Bronzing Powder & Who's Your Poppy Blush Duo 0.26 oz
    • Eye Shadow Collection in Teddy Bear, Blonde Ambition, Totally Toasted, Satin Sheets 0.35 oz
    • Shadow Insurance in Candlelight 0.17 oz
    • Pink Swan Lip Gloss  0.56 oz
    • Lashgasm Mascara 0.4 oz
    • Pink Zip Cosmetic Case
  •   Set Breakdown:
    • The advantage of this set is that it is a broad range of products to create a complete look, plus you get a pretty bonus bag to keep your products in. I haven't tried the lashgasm mascara, but it gets decent reviews. This comes with a tinted shadow insurance, so those who loved the original shadow insurance and have wanted to try the colored version could pick-up this set if they want to try it and a few other products. 
  • Who to Gift this to?
    • This would be great for the younger audience, makeup beginners and teens, or those who are new to the Too Faced Brand, since this kit offers a more complete set of makeup and little of everything to try out. They will be getting a few shadows, a mascara, primer, gloss, blush and a zip-up bag to hold it in. 

**Glamour To Go Dream Edition ($22)
A pocket-size makeup palette filled with a dreamy collection for the eyes, face, and lips.This feminine, vintage-inspired palette holds eight versatile eye shadows in the top compartment, and one silky, shiny lip gloss, a bestselling bronzer, and soft, sheer blush in the slide-out drawer below.

  • This set contains:
    • 8 eye shadows 0.03 oz each
    • Blush  0.07 oz
    • Bronzer 0.07 oz
    • Lip gloss 0.07 oz
  •  Set Breakdown:
    • This item is a great condensed palette for traveling. If you need something that takes up less space, but still offers a variety of colors, this would be a great option for you.
  •  Who to gift this to?
    • This would be a great stocking stuffer for teens or anyone who likes makeup.

So there you have the Too Faced Holiday 2011 Collection roundup. What do you think of the new collection? Will you be getting any of these items or adding them to your holiday wishlist? I will most likely be picking up the Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection when it comes out, so be sure to check back for a review and swatches!

**Coming Soon!: I'm going to try to put together an ultimate beauty and fashion gift guide for the holidays once more collections have been released. I will announce collections individually, too, but I think it will be helpful and fun for everyone if I do a roundup of the standout products and best value sets, as well as some recommendations on what to pick-up for your friends and family based on their likes.  I may even do a section on what to get your guys if anyone finds that interesting/helpful.**
