You might have seen me mention the Too Faced Semi Sweet chocolate bar palette in my January Beauty Wishlist. I’ve been lusting over it for ages and was lucky enough to be bought it for my birthday, along with one of the melted chocolate lipsticks. LUCKY ME!
I need to start off by talking about the packaging. I mean, we’ve all seen Too Faced’s gorgeous packaging, even the boxes you buy the products in are gorgeous. The writing is bold and totally eye catching. They’re the sort of boxes hoarders like me will keep in a drawer for months before eventually and very reluctantly throwing them in the recycling whilst shedding a few…okay a lot of tears.
I prefer the chocolate collection to the sweet peach collection simply because I am much more suited to the colours. I have pale skin and red hair, so when it comes to both lips and eyes, I’m better opting for the darker shades. A lot of the sweet peach collection involves brighter colours that I wouldn’t wear as much, although I am tempted to try and get my hands on the highlighting palette, sooooo pretty!
I love that this palette has a magnetic clasp, I have so many cheaper palettes which have broken clasps because I’m useless with unclipping them. I also love the very obvious fact that it looks like a chocolate bar. The bottom of the palette states that it’s made with 100% natural cocoa powder which you can totally tell before you even open it because it smells incredible, literally good enough to eat! Every shade is named after some sort of chocolatey treat and it’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades. It’s such a perfect all around palette, with gorgeous smokey shades for nights out and some really beautiful day to day colours. I’m yet to figure out how I’m going to use ‘blueberry swirl’, the one bright blue in the sea of neutral colours, however I may have a little go at the suggestion in the ‘how to glamour guide’ which accompanied my palette.
The melted chocolate lipstick I have is in the shade ‘Chocolate Berries’, it’s also infused with cocoa powder and I even think it smells a bit like berries. This was a birthday gift from my mum however I was with her when she bought it and I hadn’t actually realised at the time that it wasn’t a matte lip. I’m usually not a fan of glossy lips, I avoid lip glosses at all costs as I find them to be super messy, however this I LOVE. It’s actually super long wearing and I’m really obsessed with the colour, the perfect combo of brown and purple. It really does make your lips look like a juicy chocolate berry.
As you might have guessed, I’ve got a slight obsession with this brand at the moment, but honestly if you share the love you’ll understand why. Thank you Too Faced for being super, you’re the prettiest out there. Let me know which of their products you’re loving or dying to get your hands on.
