Happy Monday beauties – I am already done with winter – totally – and It’s only January 11th!
Keeping up with my resolutions !!!!!! Woohooo
I cleaned up all my skincare and haircare this weekend! Maybe I will post my shelves later. Pretty proud of myself – there was so much to go through. Now it’s just makeup that I have to really look at and decide what to keep and what to trash! I also avoided my phone as much as I could!
So Onto this really cute palette – I am still in first impressions mode because honestly when it’s cold like this – creating cute eye looks is the last thing on my mind. Give me my skin care, great bb cream with sunscreen, GREAT LIPSTICK and shades and I am out the door.
This palette smells amazing and I could just leave it open so I can just sniff the yummy scent as I type! (thatswhatimdoing) 🙂
I don’t have the other 2 palettes so I can’t compare but I think this is a good palette for beginners and pros alike .
Here are some swatches – Keep in mind – dead of winter – Awful natural light- I see a beam of sunlight – I run at It !!!!!!! 🙂
The top row is perfect for my blue eyes. Molasses chip is my favourite for all over the lid. It Really brings the blue out. Satin Sheets is great for the inner corners to liven up tired eyes and sprinkles is a really soft pink that also awakens the eyes.
Bordeaux and Cashew Chew go on a little crumbly or chalky. I don’t know what word to use. There is no primer on my arm obviously – I like Black Currant a lot and used it for an all over the lid colour on New Years eve.
Mocha is not really impressive either. I think I am kinda done with this kind of flat brown.
Honestly – this row – I really haven’t experimented with too much. Earl Grey is really crumbly and that’s all I am Going to say about this row because I’m still in first impression mode.
These shadows need to be used with a primer!!!!! 100%!
Again – I Can’t compare to the other 2 Chocolate Bar palettes, but I think I should of got the semi sweet one.
Loving one row of shadows in a palette doesn’t make it a stand out for me.
OBVIOUSLY – the packaging is adorable and the fact that Too Faced are Cruelty free are massive pluses, but having also picked up their Better than False Lashes Extreme mascara – which I liked at first – then it kind of just flaked off – The fibres kinda land on your face after a few hours. I think I may stick to their lip products. I am Not SUPER impressed. It’s a great palette yes, but I think my tastes are changing a bit….
Thanks for reading lovelies !!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great start of the week !
