Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar palette

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar palette retails for  $49- the exact same price as the original Chocolate Bar palette. The packaging changed a little bit . The Semi Sweet is a little thinner but still the same hard case with magnetic closure.It also has a nice size mirror inside, and like all Too Faced chocolate products it smells like chocolate:)

This palette contains warmer shades than in the original palette.Most of the shadows swatch very nicely and I noticed the apply so much better and look so much prettier on the lids then the swatches on hand. My favorite shades from this palette are: Peanut Butter, Bon Bon, Caramel and Blueberry Swirl.

The shades in the palette:

-Licorice -is a medium-dark black

Coconut Creme- is a light beige with warm,  yellow tones and a matte finish.

Pink Sugar -is a very  pale pink with a glittery finish.It looks best when applied over another eye shadow.

-Puddin’- is a medium-dark brown with a slight hint of gray and a matte finish.

-Blueberry Swirl- is a dark blue with a hint of black and purple to it . It is sheer , but can be layered to get a steel blue color.

Paula’s Choice Blush It On Contour Palette

Paula’s choice Paula’s Choice Blush It On Contour Palette ($36 ) contains six exclusive shades that are perfect for contouring the face and awakening any complexion.

First we have a pearly highlighter  that I love! It is not glittery and not too shimmery. It gives a perfect , subtle glow that isn’t too sparkly .

Delicate Coral is like the name says ,a perfect Coral shade. Gives a perfect, healthy color to the face.

Peony is a peachy pink shade. Very delicate and subtle. It has the weakest pigmentation of all of the blushes in this palette and a little patchy.

Bronze is a very nice bronze brown shade with slight red undertones.It is very smooth and velvety with great pigmentation.

Dusty Rose is a pretty pink shade with slight rosy undertone. It is similar to Peony but more pinky.

Soft Mauve is a burgundy mauve shade with great pigmentation and color payoff. It needs to be applied gently because it can apply patchy  if applied too much at once.

Overall I really , really like this palette.The blushes are matte and delicate which I prefer over very pigmented ones.They give a very natural look to your complexion without looking overdone. My favorites are the highlighter , the bronzer, and the Delicate Coral  blush as it is  very flattering and brightening on the skin.
