My lovely friend Jill has sent me this gorgeous palette from Too Faced : The Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar palette.
I saw a lot of reviews of this palette , some good , some less positive ... but i always feel the need to try things myself before i can see if i agree with those reviews or not , logic right ?
And since i am a collector type and i already had the Original Chocolate Bar , i had to have the Semi Sweet in my collection as well , no matter what :)
And let me tell you : i am a fan of this one ! I LOVE my Original Chocolate Bar palette , but i feel i will have a lot of use out of this one as well . And again , the smell .... hm hm hm ... it's chocolate , and i'm a chocolate lover :)
Pigmentation is awesome , except for "Pink Sugar" , but i think this color is more meant to be a sparkling topper , than an actual color.
So my first impression : i'm in love !
And also , as many of you know i'm not a huge fan of blue eyeshadows , so it will be a surprise if i tell you that i absolutely love the color "Blueberry Swirl" !
So my first look with this gorgeous palette is a deep blue smoky eye ( oh i love my smoky eyes .... soooo much :D )
