The palette features 3 limited-edition shades. You can use each shade on its own or mix it with the others.

Pearl - Pale Linen White
I really do like this but I think this would complement more someone with fair to medium complexion.

Champagne Pop - soft white gold with pinky peach undertones 
This shade is in collaboration with the lovely Jaclyn Hill. It's a stunning peachy gold shade that complements a lot of skin tones. I love it! 
Blushed Cooper - warm cooper infused with rose gold tones  
This one will look great for someone with a deeper complexion. It gives me a nice glow but I can't use it as a highlighter, so I prefer using it with other shades.
Champagne Pop & Blushed Cooper are available in full size. Pearl is only available in liquid and this is the first time it was available in pressed version.
Here are the swatches of all three shades:
Overall Impression
This is a great palette especially if you're planning on using at least two shades. Otherwise, I'd recommend getting full size of the shade you want. You can also use them together. I think it's worth getting if you want to try out different shades. I love Becca Shimmering Perfectors. They're so pigmented and easy to blend, so I'm glad i got this palette. Even though the pans are smaller, I had no problem applying it and these do last long, so I don't mind the size of the pans.

Too Faced Melted French Kisses Holiday Set

Too Faced Melted French Kisses retails for $25 USD ($32 CADand includes 4 deluxe size lipsticks (0.16 oz each) in shades: Chihuahua, Berry, Metallic Peony and Metallic Macaron. Two of them are Melted Liquified Lipsticks, while the other 2 are from Melted Metal collection. Full size lipstick retails for $21 USD ($25 CAD) each and contains 0.40 oz.
Watch my video for lip swatches and review : 
Is it worth the price? Yes, you're getting in total 0.64 oz of product for all 4 lipsticks and paying $4 USD ($7 CAD) more. You also get to try out 4 shades by paying slightly more, so I think this set is definitely worth it. However, if you feel like you will only use one shade out of all of them, it would be better if you buy the full size. Personally, I've always wanted to try metallic shades, so I'm glad I got to try them out with this set. 

Here are swatches of all four shades:
