I recently purchased The Too Faced Grande Hotel Cafe from their Christmas in New York range. I found that shipping to the UK from the Too Faced website was too expensive, so I ended up purchasing from Sephora instead. Sephora have only recently introduced UK shipping to all products and in comparison to ordering directly from Too Faced, Sephora ended up being around £15 cheaper. Plus it only took 6 days for my Grand Hotel Cafe to arrive!

The Hotel itself has a removable roof, and magnetic doors that open to reveal 3 eyeshadow palettes and a sample version of the 'Better Than Sex' mascara. The 'Better Than Sex' mascara is what I use daily anyway as i find it works best to curl and define my lashes, so it's nice to have it in handbag size!
 I love the design of the hotel, it reminds me of the Grand Budapest Hotel. The Christmas style continues with a Christmas tree on the back of the house and a festive cafe on the inside. 
Inside are the 3 palettes named: Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Cookie and Peppermint Mocha. In total there are 7 matte shades, 11 glittery shades, 2 blushers and 1 bronzer. 

I'm really happy with the whole product. I currently have the hotel displayed on my bedside table because it's so beautiful and festive! The eyeshadows are pigmented and long lasting and there's a large variety of colours to create a number of looks either day or night. Plus each palette is scented which adds a nice christmassy touch.
