So, here is one of the most anticipated collection that everyone loves, The Too Faced – Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set.
If last year’s theme was a Festive Christmas, this year, Too Faced takes us to celebrate Christmas In Paris!
There are six products launched with this theme – both new products and repackaged with Christmas theme:
- Le Grand Palais (New)
- Le Grand Chateau (New)
- Le Petit Tresor (New)
- Melted Kisses & Sweet Cheeks
- French Kisses Melted
- Deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara Ornament
In this post, I am gonna share with you the Le Grand Chateau only.
As mentioned, the set is made up of three separate palettes and a travel-sized mascara. Each palettes has six high-impact eye shadows and a blush or a bronzer.
The following is the picture of the three sets and the swatches of the shadows. As for the quality, you can expect nothing less from Too Faced. They are Too Faced standard:
- Buttery formula
- Very smooth
- Easy to blend
- Has excellent staying power (though I would still recommend you to use eye primer in advanced).
The only turned down for me is the shimmery shades, they tend to have chunky glitters. If you know me, I don’t like glitters; when it comes to eyeshadow, I tend to use the matte and metalic shades. However, all of the shades on the three palettes are working finely on me.
This mascara, as you all know, is Too Faced top bullet. Who does not know this Better Than Sex Mascara?
In short, Better Than Sex Mascara is an intensely black, volumising mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. All you need is one coat, and your lashes are full and defined. If you like more dramatic eye look like me, give it two coats. What’s more, it does not smudge too! This Better Than Sex Mascara immediately become my favorite along with my Benefit Real Mascara. Still deciding which gonna become my all time favorite though. What’s your all time favorite mascara? Comment yours below, so I can try it as well 🙂
We can expect nothing less from Too Faced, when it comes to theme and design. Just like last year, this year too, Too Faced successfully surprised everyone. The set is packaged in a very elegantly cute cardboard box, which design as a stylish present box. If you are going to gift this as a present, I don’t think you wanna ruin the box by wrapping it with a wrapping paper. I personally will give it as it is.
Inside, you gonna find an adorable and chic chateau that opens to reveal three separate palettes and a travel-sized mascara. The design is an absolute dream and literally the loveliest makeup present a girl could ask for.
The roof of the Chateau comes off and the doors open with a magnetic closure, which I find very useful; so, the doors can be easily closed and won’t break.
The Stores & The Price
It costs differently, depending on where you live. Unfortunately, Sephora Indonesia does not sell this set and others holiday collection, as mentioned on my previous post. Fortunately, we have branded cosmetic seller who sell them. Important notes on pricing: every sellers have different pricing!

- Sephora Canada – C$62
- Mecca Australia – AUD$70

- LioleCosmetic (instagram) – Rp 1,225,000
Fyi, I am not paid to say this, but I got mine from Beauty Haul Indo, my trusted olshop for branded cosmetic. I just wanna share my recommendation to my readers, because there are so many olshop out there to choose from. You have to be careful, especially if you know that their pricing is too cheap to be true. Do your research first before shopping.
So, that’s all my review for today. I hope you enjoy my review and found it useful. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram @jovial.beauty for more makeup haul and pictures <3
