Too Faced Everything Nice Palette: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
For those of you that loved the Holiday 2013 Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette (reviewed here), you are going to love this post because for Holiday 2014, Too Faced has released a new version of the palette called Everything Nice ($68 CAD or $56 USD) and it's bigger and better. The palette set includes a ton of shadows (well, 20 to be exact), blushes, bronzer, highlighter, and a few other lovely extras. So to see some swatches and my review, click.......
What the set includes:
  1. Everything Nice Palette:
    • 20 Eyeshadows (1.6g each)
    • 2 Blushes (4g each)
    • 1 Highlighter (4g)
    • 1 Bronzer (4g)
    • 3-Piece Mini Brush Set
    • Mini How-To Guide
  2. Travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara
  3. Hot pink glittery travel pouch

Packaging:
The Everything Nice Palette comes in a lovely pink cardboard packaging with fancy gold embossings on the outside. The inside is also shiny and gold, super festive and girly.
On one side of the palette you will find all the shadows and on the other you can find the face powders and three mini face brushes. The brushes have white synthetic bristles and plastic handles embedded with gold sparkles (no fallouts). The quality is decent but I honestly find them excessive because even when I travel, I bring some of my full sized brushes to use.
The included Better Than Sex Mascara mini doesn't fit in the palette, it's a stand alone add-on that you can store in the pouch, which has hot pinks sparkles on one of its sides. The glitters are pretty securely glued on so I've experienced minimal fallouts.
Compared to last year's A Few of My Favorite Things Palette, the Everything Nice Palette is noticeably thicker because the side with the blushes were made thicker to accommodate the brush set.

Formulation & Swatches:
Below you will find my swatches and reviews of all the shadows and face powders from the palette. I am trying out a new review format for palettes simply because there are just too many shades to go over and repeatedly saying "this one is nice and creamy" makes me feel like I'm doing a bad job. So hopefully this new format is more concise and efficient, let me know what you think!
Also, I will not be reviewing the Better Than Sex Mascara as I tried the one from last year's set and wasn't really a big fan of the formula (I guess I just reviewed it right there).

Overall:
I think this palette makes a great gift, either for yourself or for another makeup lover. All the face powders in here are superb and I'd say 60% of the shadows are amazing and only a couple were complete duds. If you own last years palette, you may still want to check out this one because even though 50% of the shades are comparable, only 10% to 15% are close dupes. And finally, the packaging is just adorable, the girly girl inside me squeals every time I see this palette!

Availability:
Too Faced is available online and in stores at Sephora. This set is currently sold out online but I think it's too early in the season to be sold out permanently so it should return soon.
