Today's post is dedicated to one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes, the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar by Too Faced.
Too Faced is one of my favorite makeup brands and their eyeshadows always live up to my expectations. I picked up this palette around holiday season past year, when I had a 20% off discount coupon code at Sephora. I took advantage of it and bought this palette, as I fell in love with the colors of the eyeshadows!
I said to myself I won't be purchasing so much makeup anymore and I was quite good with that promise, but I did make a small exception when buying this palette...it actually turned out to be a great buy because I haven't stopped using it ever since I got it!
I created so many different looks with it already and there are so many different looks yet to discover!
I'm overall very pleased with the entire quality: Starting from the packaging, to the actual texture and long-lasting power of the eyeshadows.
The packaging is nice, sturdy box in a shape of an actual chocolate bar! It has got a magnetic closure, it's easy to carry with you during travel and it doesn't get dirty easily...and if it does, it's so easy to wipe it off clean again!
Oh, and the eyeshadows smell like chocolate! When you open the palette, it really looks as if you're about to taste a delicious chocolate bar!
In this palette, you'll find eyeshadows for every possible taste and occasion: from daily neutral looks, to more sophisticated and glam evening appropriate looks!
In my video tutorial, I created one look that I love doing lately with this palette, and it includes the gorgeous Caramel eyeshadow!
Take a look at my youtube review & tutorial here
Here are the palette's swatches:
My favorite and most used shades are: "Cocoa Chili" , "Nougat", "Mousse", "Peanut Butter", "Caramel", "Bon Bon" I also like both highlighters, "Coconut Creme" which is a very natural, matte, and "Butter Pecan", which is a subtle shimmery shade!
"Blueberry Swirl" is definitely a bit unexpected in this palette, but I actually like it there because it gives you a possibility to be a little bit more creative with your eye makeup and bring a pop of color in your looks!
I hope I managed to get you interested in this palette! It's definitely an awesome buy, as you'll get 16 beautiful and super pigmented, long lasting shades! I use them even without the eyeshadow primer (I use only a cream shadow as a base) and they don't crease and have the longest staying power!
Here's another recent look I created using this palette (Spring GRWM video tutorial)
Do you already have this palette? If so, how do you like it? Which are your favorite shades?
