In Love with the Cocoa- Too Faced Makeup Haul

Hey Everyone!

I’ve been dying to share this purchase with you and the day is finally here! A couple weeks back QVC had an awesome Too Faced “Better than Chocolate” box sale which included: The Chocolate Bar eyeshadow pallet, “Better than Sex” Mascara, “Nude Beach” lipstick and a sample of their “shadow insurance” all for $49! I’m not usually one to splurge on brand names, but I know a steal when I see one. I apologize for not sharing it with you all, but I found out about it 2 hours before the cut-off time 😦

Over all, I’m in LOVE with the eyeshadow pallet, primer and lipstick. Let’s get reviewin’!

As you can see, the variety of colors leaves endless options for day to night looks and the colors are so rich: from warm natural browns, delicate pinks and luscious plums- this pallet will definitely up your eyeshadow game. So far, I’m addicted to the “White Chocolate” color: a matte white. I like to apply a small amount of the shadow for a soft, light lid or sometimes I pack it on a bit heavier so that my lid is white. This looks great contrasted against black eyeliner and topped off with a bright red lipstick. Hello starlet!

I think I’m a little late on this “Shadow Insurance” primer, but it works great!! True to its word, the primer goes on smooth and does not crease. It really helps my eye shadows to stay on and I even use it on my lips sometimes as a base for lipstick! Oh, and a little bit goes a long way, which is always a plus.

Searching for the perfect nude lipstick? I think I’ve found it! This lipstick glides on smooth, has a slight shine and stays on well. I like to wear this over a nude Milani lipliner for the slight lined Kylie Jenner pouty look. Although, it also looks great by itself.

“Better than Sex” mascara- I’m sorry to say, but my vote is that it definitely isn’t better than sex. Hehe. I would rate the mascara as very thick and clumpy. You must put it on with extreme caution and I’m always running late- so I definitely don’t have time to apply with great care. I’ve tried putting it on my bottom lashes and ended up with mascara under my eyes- a big charcoally mess of gunky mascara… not pretty. Others love it, but so far I’m not a fan!

Have you tried any of these Too Faced products? I’d love to hear your feedback!
