Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches
Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette
I recently purchased the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar at Too Faced.com along with some other Too Faced products. The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette is the 2nd edition of the Chocolate Bar palette.
Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette
The Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow is a deeper, warmer version of the Chocolate Bar Palette. It contains sixteen cocoa powder-infused eyeshadows that range from neutral to colourful such as warm caramel, deepest mocha and bronzed chocolate. With this Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette, you can create a limitless look from day, night, nude, dramatic etc. This Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette is a collection of shimmery caramels, matte chocolates and pops of decadent color.
The eyeshadows are housed in a chocolate bar shaped tin with a magnetic closure that will eventually remind you of chocolate not to mention that sweet scent of Cocoa Powder that hits you each time you open the tin packaging. With the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow palette, you can find the name of each eyeshadow imprinted directly above each eyeshadow, unlike the Chocolate Bar that has the names printed on a piece of plastic.
A guidebook is included within the palette that shows how you can create three different looks using the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette. This guidebook will also give you an idea of which shades can be paired with each other and where you can apply each, so if you are a beginner of creating your own looks then this guidebook can be of help to you.

These shadows can be worn for long hours. To get the best results from using these shadows apply eye primer prior eyeshadow application and you will get a better color payoff and a much longer wearing time from the shadows.
The mattes are smooth, buttery, blendable and it applies evenly over lids. The same can be said for the shimmer and metallic. Cocoa Chili and Pink Sugar have a great amount of shimmer. Pink Sugar, in particular, is a unique type of shadow that has offers a sheer iridescent amount of shimmer that can be used as a transforming topcoat.
