Did you know that today is National Chocolate Day?! That sounds like a holiday I want to be celebrating - I'm currently munching on vegan dark chocolate. To further celebrate, I'm bringing you Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette* ($59 CAD), which not only looks like a chocolate bar, but it also has an intoxicating cocoa scent!
"Inspired by Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, this Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette is a deeper, warmer version of the original coveted palette. Infused with the scent of sweet chocolate, this collection features 16 antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused shadows in matte and shimmer shades with warm caramels, deep mochas, bronzy chocolate, and vibrant sugared blueberry hues. These rich, high-pigment shades are perfect for any season, and it includes a signature how-to Glamour Guide to help you get started with three eye looks." - Sephora
Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette comes packaged in a metal tin that looks like a chocolate bar. The lid has a magnetic closure that's pretty strong, but this isn't a palette that I would take travelling with me just in case it popped open. I really the interior of this palette - the names are printed right on the palette, something that was missing from the original Chocolate Bar Palette.
The shadows in the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette are really creamy, soft, and they have lovely pigmentation. I love this palette because it makes it easy to create an everyday neutral eye, but there are also a few more colourful shadows thrown into the mix. My favourite shadows are Pink Sugar, Rum Raisin, Mousse, and Nougat, which all work really well together. Butter Pecan and Coconut Creme are great base shadows or brow bone highlights. I get a full day of wear out of these shadows without any fading or creasing.
