Swatches & more pics below!

Being the total sucker for packaging that I am, How could I pass up this set ?
That gorgeous French Chateau design, the little doors that open up revealing the products,
the three palettes dressed like ribboned presents, each with "To/From" gift labels 
on the back making them perfect stocking stuffers!
Once you take out the palettes, there's a cute background drawing of a Victorian 
styled sofa & Paris view with little bags full of Too Faced products, 
once again..Too Faced nails the attention to detail
Out of the 18 Shadows there are 6 Mattes (similar to the Le Grand Palais Set)
 Each individual Palette includes 6 eyeshadow shades & a large Cheek colour

Paris au Naturale is the perfect everyday, neutral palette with 3 Mattes & 3 Shimmers
to create multiple looks with & versatile enough so you can change your simple daytime
look to a beautiful evening look by adding a pop of shimmer! 
Also "Mademoiselle" is a nice matte blush, a wearable neutral peach
Paris in Love is a very romantic palette with soft shimmers & only 1 Matte shade! ("Amour")
Not so great as a stand alone palette, even the bronzer is shimmery..might be nice for a glowy 
beach-day look, but the colour "Fleur" is such a stunning duochrome shade with a peachy pink shimmer base & an intense gold reflect, it makes the palette worth keeping!
Paris After Dark is a great palette for a cool toned smoky look, with 2 Mattes & 4 shimmers you could play around & create a deep black smoky eye, or something purple & sultry for a sexy night out!
"Le Marais" is unlike any shadow I have seen before, it looks like a simple shimmery white highlight, but it has an insane duochrome effect of pinks, pearls, greens & golds making it super reflective! "Tres Fab" Blush is a cooler pink that goes perfectly in this palette.
The eyeshadows in this set are what you'd expect from Too Faced - Buttery, smooth & pigmented
If you have read my previous blog on the Le Grand Palais set, you will know how 
disappointed I was with that palette & the shadows..even the Blushes were pretty bad!
Le Grand Chateau - $49 for 18 eyeshadows, 2 Blushes, 1 Bronzer & Mascara Sample
Perfect quality, versatile, cute packaging..
or 
Le Grand Palais - $58 for 18 eyeshadows, 2 Blushes, 1 Highlight, 1 Bronzer (Half the size)
Mini Mascara, Melted Lipstick & Shadow Insurance
Great colours but terrible textures, gorgeous packaging & extra samples

I totally recommend this set from Too Faced though!
The palettes are great gift ideas for a friend who loves her neutrals, one who 
goes for a simple glowy look & another who loves a smoky eye or pop of purple
And you can keep the Dollhouse box on your vanity for your self..or just keep the whole set! ;)
