I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the past weeks. I have been busy with my family and getting ready for Christmas. I hope that everyone had an awesome Christmas and received everything they wanted. Christmas was great; the kids enjoyed their gifts and we enjoyed our time with family and friends while eating some delicious food.
Now on to the review….
TOO FACED CHOCOLATE BAR
I purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette in October, but really didn’t use it until Mid November.
The palette is in a cute box that looks like a wrapped chocolate bar. The actual palette looks like chocolate too. I think this is so cute! Inside the box, Too Faced included a step-by-step look cards that will help you to create different looks. When you open the palette, the smell of sweet chocolate is the first thing you will notice. This is because the co-founder Jerrod Blandino was inspired to use actual cocoa powder as one of the ingredients in the eye shadows!
In the palette there are the following eye shadow colors:
- Gilded Ganache
- Salted Caramel
- White Chocolate
- Creme Brulee’
- Haute Chocolate
- Milk Chocolate
- Strawberry Bon Bon
- Cherry Cordial
- Black Forest Truffle
- Candied Violet
- Triple Fudge
- Champagne Truffle
The shadows are very pigmented and there is little fall out when you are applying the shadows. The texture is smooth and creamy and there is not a lot of shimmer in them. That is a plus for me because I don’t like the shimmery consistency in most pallets. I don’t often use eye primer, but I noticed that i don;t have to use it with this palette.
The only con I have is the price. The palette runs at $49.00 on the Too Faced and Sephora websites. This is why I went looking for some similar palettes for those who don’t want to spend that amount of money on makeup. This is what I found….
I ❤ Chocolate Salted Caramel Palette from Makeup Revolution. The colors are similar to the Chocolate Bar, but the best part is the price. It costs £7.99 (around $12.00 USD). The only con is that it’s a London based company. I ordered this palette and I cannot wait to try it out!
