Exclusive! See Swatches of Too Faced's Merry Macaron Palette
Too Faced started blowing the minds and stealing the hearts of beauty-loving foodies everywhere when it launched its cocoa-infused (and -scented) bronzer in 2012. From there, the brand moved on to chocolaty compacts and peachy keen products. Now, for its limited-edition holiday palette with Ulta Beauty, Too Faced is giving us a vanilla-fragranced, macaron-themed palette.
Merry Macarons ($39) is a pop-up style palette that is inspired by Christmas in New York City. Open the case and you'll find a cartoon girl — accompanied by the Too Faced co-founders' dog, Clover — ice skating in Rockefeller Center. Instead of the iconic pine, there's a tree made of macarons beside a vendor selling the sweet treat.
The products are just as fun. A deluxe-sized Better Than Sex Mascara complements the 12 full-sized, exclusive shadows. There are soft pastels, mid-toned neutrals, a few smoky shades, and a vibrant purple that are all generously dosed with the aroma of a vanilla cookie. There's a healthy mix of shimmers and mattes, but we found that the finish didn't affect the formula. Each swipe looked creamy and pigmented.
While you may have seen sneak peeks of this product on Instagram, we worked exclusively with Ulta Beauty to provide you with swatches on three different skin tones to inform your holiday gifting. Read on to see the flattering shades and decide whether you'll buy Merry Macarons for a friend (or yourself . . . no judgment here!).
