Hello beautiful ladies,
In November last year, I posted a Christmas wishlist (read about it here) with both the Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Chip palettes on it. I wrote then that the choc chip I could get by without but the white chocolate one was the one that interested me.
Then, with unfavourable reviews coming out of the US after the Black Friday release, my interest disappeared. Reviews are great for so many products but the ones with the mixed reviews….who do you believe? I know myself that I have products that have bad reviews but I love them. So, as you can tell, I caved in without breaking my actual goal ‘policy’ because this is a limited edition.
- TOO FACED White Chocolate Chip Eyeshadow Palette
- RRP – $37.00AUD from Mecca buy it here
WHY? It felt like I had just bought the Sweet Peach collection when this little palette was released on the 28th February. I wasn’t interested though because of the reviews and I’d bought the palette everyone had been raving about (Sweet Peach) so why do I need this one? I would’ve happily left it at that except Mecca had a Q and A on Facebook and someone asked how long the White Choc would be in stock and the answer was until sold out with no restock. Okay, plenty of companies say there will be no restock and there is, but there’s also cases I’ve missed out because I’ve put it off.
That thought – that once its gone, its gone – made me start thinking and the conversation went a little like this:
Responsible brain – ‘do I need this? I wanted it so badly a few months ago so are you willing to say no? Plus, its $37 – you won’t go broke if you don’t like it.’
Okay, my brain is very persuasive. In my cart it goes, along with 5 or 6 other items (that’s what used to happen).
Responsible brain – ‘Hang on, you have to put these on next month’s goal rewards because none of it is limited edition.’
Makeup addict brain – (sulky face) ‘Stupid rules – who made these stupid rules – I need everything in this cart.’
Responsible brain – ‘Take it out.’
Makeup up brain – (takes all items out reluctantly, except the Nars concealer) ‘Concealer and foundation shouldn’t be included – they are needs and I’m not paying postage costs anyway.’ (defiant face)
Responsible brain – ‘Fine.’
Make up brain – (happy face)
Anyway, that’s pretty much how my thoughts worked in this conversation. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has brain struggles.
FIRST IMPRESSSIONS Omg, its tiny! Omg, it smells so good. Omg, its so cute. Unlike the larger Too Faced palettes, it is plastic with the choc bar embossing similar to the Chocolate Bar palette. It’s small enough to be travel friendly with quite a range of colours and looks to choose from, however, its lacking a darker smoky shade. If the black is anything like the one out of Boudoir Eyes, I’m probably not going to use it a lot (too glittery, not pigmented enough).
The rest of the palette is a mixture of nudes, a pink, sparkling purple, a grey and shimmering white in a range of matte and shimmers. I don’t think its a complete palette for every look but then, I use two palettes a lot anyway these days so that doesn’t bother me too much. The buttery texture I’m used to and easy blendability of the other Too Faced palettes is what I do expect though.
I’ll have a play with it and write my review on this palette that has had such mixed reviews.
Did you buy this palette? Or want it?
Until next time,
