Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette.

Too Faced Chocolate Palettes are by no means new on the market, but with the impending launch of the Peanut Butter & Jelly palette & the recent launch of the Bon Bon palette (in a Mecca Maxima near you today) what better time to revisit an old favourite, part one.

I’ll begin with the original chocolate palette, this was the second eyeshadow palette I purchased in my life (coming in behind the Urban Decay New York palette – amazing palette, I should definitely give it it’s own post) & can I tell you it was one of the most exciting early make-up purchases I have made. Strolling down The Strip in Las Vegas I made a beeline for Sephora, the only bright lights which truly interested me among casinos and night clubs. Through those pearly gates I marched, a little apprehensive I will admit (not having Sephora in Australia at this time I was beaming with anticipation) after a starry eyed roam around the store I landed upon the Too Faced display, well safe to say I was in heaven. Chocolate infused make-up – WHAT? Amazing. Next thing I’m leaving Sephora chuffed as Larry with my bag of goodies. The main attraction being the Chocolate palette. I hope you don’t mind the minor back story into my discovery of the Too Faced palette’s but I can’t help but reminisce.

Now, what is so damn fabulous about the Chocolate Bar palette? Besides from the mouth watering smell of chocolate you receive every time the lid is opened, it is the chocolate smokey eye heaven, with a splash of girly charm. The Chocolate Bar is an assortment of  gold & brown with just enough purple & burgundy to spice it up a little. The palette hosts 11 shimmer/glitter shades & 5 matte, which for me is ideal because it provides the perfect sultry sparkle to my day when I’m feeling everything that glitters is gold. Whilst still maintaining the strong base players to support a casual everyday eye.

In the last few weeks I have rekindled my love of this palette and have been smashing the shades semi-sweet all over the lid, salted caramel in the crease blended out and marzipan in the inner corner of my eye – its the perfect go to day time look paired with semi-matte skin & a light contour. 

As a side note, champagne truffle is a to die for highlighter on those fairer skinned ladies.

Hello.

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for stopping by my little blog to have a read. My name is Sarah & I am a twenty two year old Aussie who’s studying a Bachelor of Arts majoring in History & about to leave the land of kangaroos to head off overseas.

I have a serious love for make-up & fashion (although I think my boyfriend might call it an obsession) & thought why not write about it, sure it gives me a reason to buy more make-up & clothes, but it’s also something to write about instead of the history of witch craft or the foundation of Rome.

I hope you all thoroughly enjoy what is to come, please shoot me suggestions, thoughts or your favourite chocolate I’m all ears.

Bye from me for now, make sure you hit that follow button and check back every Tuesday for something new!
