Too Faced Chocolate Bar: Review

Hey guys!!!

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
  • Hazelnut
  • White Chocolate
  • Marzipan
  • Creme Brulee’
  • Semi-sweet
  • Haute Chocolate
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Strawberry Bon Bon
  • Cherry Cordial
  • Black Forest Truffle
  • Candied Violet
  • Triple Fudge
  • Ameretto
  • 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….

Dupe Alert!!!!!!!

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!

As you can see, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I am a working mom, so I don’t have a lot of time in the morning, but I want to look presentable. Once, I have done these steps a few times, it is like second nature to me.

I will add on more for night outings, but for busy women like myself, give this a try!

Thanks for stopping by!!

What’s in my makeup bag?

makeupbag

Hey everyone!! I am back with another post. I hope everyone has been enjoying their week so far.

Today’s post is about all the essentials that I have in my makeup bag.  This is the makeup bag that I carry in my purse on a daily basis. Not only do I carry my makeup essentials in here, I also have non-makeup necessities as well.

__________________________________________________

A great chap-stick is important to have especially during the winter. I have been using Carmax. I must admit I like the tingling sensation (it makes me feel like its working lol).

Along with a great chap-stick, a great hand lotion is also important! I am using the esos hand lotion that I purchased at Target.

I keep hand sanitizer in there too. I have to keep my hands clean and working with kids, that is a must.

I have Powder in here because I am very oily. I have to powder throughout the day.  This one is from Mac Cosmetics.

My eyes get dry often, so I keep some eyedrops with me. Rohto Ice is awesome.

I have body spray with me for days that I forget to put some on at home. Currently, I am using Country Chic from Bath and Body Works.

I received an eye-shadow kit from AVON that I keep with me. It’s great for my bag because the colors are neutral.

I got mini Makeup Forever Lipstick (Rouge), mascara, and eye liner from Sephora. They are great for keeping in my bag for those days I am running late.

I Keep Covergirl Queen Collection Ligloss (Spiced Latte) along with Milani Lipstick and lipliner in my bag too.

Lastly, I keep Q-tips, nail file, nail clippers, pencil sharpener, and Shout Wipes with me.
