If you all follow me on Instagram then you might have noticed some pictures I posted of the Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette!
I definitely did not need another eyeshadow palette, let alone another neutral one, but when I saw this I couldn't help myself. So thanks to the Sephora gift card that hubby got me from xmas, I could justify getting it a little more than if i was to buy it myself (excuse the excuses).
I never picked up the original Chocolate Bar palette from too faced, because for some reason it just didn't appeal to me. I didn't care for the packaging or the colors, etc. but this new one has a lot warmer toned colors and I just thought it was gorgeous. Plus it smells like Chocoalte, what else is better than that??
This can be found at Sephora, Ulta, and TooFaced.com. It retails for $49.
Here's the packaging and photos of the palette with the flash on/off. My silly self forgot to take a picture of the packaging while closed but I'm sure you have all seen this before so it's okay. Ha ha.
You get a nice mixture of matte and shimmer shades. I love how many matte colors are in this palette, they make for such good blending and transition colors. You also get two highlight shades, and that gorgeous teal color that I've been dying to play with. The packaging is a metal case that has a magnetic closure.
Here's swatches for the top, middle, and bottom row. They don't look super pigmented when swatched but they go on the eyes much better!
Here's a look I did with the palette using 3 or 4 different shades.
I've tried out different colors and shades but for some reason all my looks end up looking super similar. So my plan to post a few looks in this post has sort of failed haha!
My overall thoughts
-I am completely obsessed with this palette. It's all I've been using and every time I walk by it, I have to open it and smell the chocolatey heaven ness.
-The colors are beautiful and great for everyday.
-I love how the names of the colors are printed under the shadow, and they have chocolatey names.
-They are a little bit harder to blend out than some shadows I have (ex. Urban decay naked palettes), but if you have a good brush and patience then it will work.
-It does have some fall out, which is kind of annoying but that's really the only bad thing I have to say about this.
-I really recommend this one if you were thinking about getting it!
Here's one last picture of the look I did! And I will have some more looks with this posted very soon!
