Wearing the new A Few of My Favorite Things palette from Too Faced ($56 US and $64 CDN)

You know what would totally take Too Faced Cosmetics’ new A Few of My Favorite Things holiday set to the next level??

If Fraulein Maria, and the whole gang of von Trapp children on bicycles, showed up at my doorstep with play clothes made out of curtains.

All these pretty products come with the set…

If you actually got that reference, then paws up for being a fellow Sound of Music super fan. :D

Inspired by one of my favorite musicals of all time, the new palette makes me feel like singing A Few of My Favorite Things at the top of my lungs!

But you don’t have to be a Sound of Music nerd to love it. Not at all. If you merely have an appreciation for wearable brights and neutrals for eyes, lips and cheeks, you’ll probably like it, too.

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things: The rundown

  • The set comes with colors hand-picked by Jerrod Blandino, co-founder and creative director of Too Faced Cosmetics.
  • It includes 20 powder eyeshadows
  • 2 powder blushes
  • 2 bronzers
  • A full-sized Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bee Sting
  • A deluxe-sized Better Than Sex Mascara
  • A zip-up pink and gold case to use as a purse, or to just store your goodies in (CUTE!)
  • The set arrives soon, exclusively to Sephora stores and sephora.com.
  • It includes a balanced blend of neutral and bright products. I think the blushes, bronzers and mascara are perfect! — but I do wish the glittery and shimmer shadows exhibited less fallout. I also wish the lip color was brighter.

    This is so cute!! The product names are from the song. This set also looks really nice, color choice wise, but the theme is to die for. Blue satin sheets looks like an amazing color!

    I mean, come on, “Whiskers on Kittens!” How can I possibly pass this up????

  6. Kim says:

    I was totally obsessed with sound of music as a kid. I love these colors. And the set looks really convienient for travel. Is it about the size of an ipad?

    • Karen says:

      Seriously, me too! Did you and your friends ever act out the songs? We did, LOL!

      Regarding the size, yes, it’s about the size of an iPad. I have a pic of the purse in my hand in the post, and it’s just a tiny bit smaller than the purse. It’s also very thin, which is great for travel.

  7. Erin says:

    What beautiful colors! I love Too Faced, but I have a confession: I only buy their products (both singles and palettes) when they make an appearance at Nordstrom Rack. TF products always sell out fast there and you have to be ok with not getting products right as they’re released, but I’ve saved a lot of dollars that way.

  8. One of the best Holiday palettes I have come across. the shades are amazing and the combo of blushes and bronzerr.. woooww!! wish the formula had been a little better.. :)

  9. TrippyPixie says:

    I’ve seen “The Sound of Music” well over 100 times (it was a family staple and requisite road trip movie when I was a kid), so I’m loving the references!

  10. Lulle says:

    Beautiful palette! I was gonna grab Joy to the Girls but now I don’t know anymore!

  11. Is it wrong to want this palette based solely on my love that it contains a pan named Cream Colored Ponies? I don’t think so. ;)

  12. love the palette! you’ve done the eyes so well :D

  13. Danielle says:

    I think this looks like a good set, overall. I love the names of everything.

    Well now that I have “so long, farewell, aved…” can’t spell that last one but you get the drift. LOL

    this looks like a great set and hopefully I will be able to pass it up. I did ok passing on UD Vice II yesterday but I still wants it. ugh…

    I wish I had the time and skill to photo my reviews. I spend way too much on products just to try them. LOL I really love your way with words – I chuckle at ‘something’ every time I read it.

    my love to Tabs.

  15. Kim says:

    I love the Sound of Music tie-in. Such a great movie! :)
