REVIEW : TOO FACED Chocolate bar eyeshadow palette

Happy Early Valentine's day, Beauties!

I finally!finally!!!got this palette in my hand! Been eye-ing for it since the first came out, but i could not find it at my local Sephora ( It only available online for a while!). But, finally they sold it at the store a well, and just now, i finally got this babe! This is actually my early Valentine's day gift from my hubby *winkwink..

So, here is the mini review of this cute palette!

Where to buy : 


Price :

US$ 49
( +Tax - may variable )



Quote from the Too Faced Website about this product : 
Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino was inspired to combine the power of antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and makeup while having a chocolate facial and learning about the benefits of cocoa at a Hawaiian spa. Based on this inspiration we created our best-selling bronzer Chocolate Soleil and then Milk Chocolate Soleil and have now added the Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette.

 THE OUTSIDE PACKAGING ( BOX ) :

The Description on the back of the OUTSIDE packaging 




OUTSIDE BOX label  


Small HOW TO guide brochure

THE PALETTE : 


- Chocolate bar look - alike made from light-weight tin container
- A little bit bulky compare to  NAKED palette ( picture below )
- On the back of the palette there is a description about the palette, the contains, production, etc

Size Comparison to NAKED 3 Palette 



-  The palette has a medium sized mirror ( not a full sized ) 
- It contains 16 eyeshadows, some matte, some shimmers, silky/velvety feels or even baked eyeshadows texture.
- Color collections mostly brown, chocolate, gold tones, bronze or dark. Some are similar but the textures are different...
- No brush included
- Smells like a chocolate!




SWATCHES


- Some colors are  a little bit chalky ( matte ones ) NOT all of them.. but not too bad, i bet with eyeshadow primer, it should be ok!

- Pretty colors as a highlighter ( White Chocolate ( matte )  and champagne Truffle ( shimmer ) ) available in larger size than the other eyeshadows. I had a little problem with White Chocolate, it seems like a little bit chalky when i created a slight stroke on my hand for the swatch. Primer would be help!

- PIGMENTED..super..especially those with shimmer that look like almost baked eyeshadows..such as Haute Chocolate, Hazelnut, Amaretto, Triple fudge ( i think most of deep bronze/brown or gold tones color ) .

- I also had a problem swatch-ing Candied Violet ( deep violet with shimmer ). One slight touch with finger picks the amount of product but when swatch it on the skin, it a little bit off..expect a little bit fall outs... ( see the picture below)



- Strawberry bon-bon ( Strawberry milk color ) is the cutest pink color on this palette. Pigmented, build-able, even though could be chalky before you smudge it..

- Take a look Candied Violet when i pick it with finger, but when i smudge it, it only left a small amount of color.

- But overall, i love this palette, the color collections are gorgeous and yet it still the natural collections. Pigmented and some colors have a gorgeous shimmery look which i love!Once again, with the eyeshadow primer, it would be a perfect palette. 



Hope this is helpful!

Sunday Funday! Street style parade!


Hello!
How was your weekend going?
Beside the football fever here, i also excited to see #TheRichKids of Beverly Hills on E! tonight! But, i kinda wanted to share my outfit of the day for my Sunday Funday, before hitting the couch for the rest of the day...<3

Just recently found the website called Rosewholesale.com and i am hooked!
I am rarely do an online shopping, but since i found lots of cute stuff on their website, i would like to give a try!
First of all, the reason why i kinda hesitate to shop online is because i have to wait for such a long time to get the items delivered. Not to mention if something is missing or wrong or broken, it could be a pain in a** to do a replacement order or deal with the company here and there, this and that! But, if you willing to do a shopping online just wanted to give a try, i would suggest this website!

Here is the quote from their website : 

Cheap Wholesale Clothes:

RoseWholesale as one of the largest online clothes wholesalers, we specialize in wholesale clothes as well as online clothing for those looking to save money and buy wholesale clothing. We feature extensive collections of clothes for girls with the latest designs, as well as clothes for women with sophisticated styling. Our product ranges also include clothes for men with the sharpest and smartest looks. Available at huge discounts and wholesale direct prices, all of our clothes for sale are beautifully manufactured to the highest standards to give you maximum peace of mind when you buy clothes online.





So, i ordered lots of stuff from them anyway. No kidding! I am super happy because the website accept PAYPAL as the form of payment. I am talking about the one that not require any bank account number at all.. As long as you have money on your paypal account.. I added some money through moneypack to my paypal account and used it to pay the order on checkout!  Love this kind of payment while shopping, no risk to get hacked. And you could limit yourself as well, especially if youre shopaholic..like me..^_^

PAYMENT METHOD check here

The shipping 

It took 2 to 3 days ( business days) for me to got my stuff delivered to my address..it was fast!i was impressed! Thing is from the day you ordered the item and paid it, wait until at least 3 to 5 days for them to prepare and ship your stuff, then after that, they will inform you that your package has shipped and wait for 2 or 3 days it will be there at your address!!
 ( Expedited shipping ) so, lets say it takes at least 1 to 1 and half week for the whole shipping process! Not bad at all!

SHIPPING AND HANDLING check here

Awesome Customer service

Nothing beats a good customer service, no matter what! So, i ordered 7 items and i only got 6 items. One item is missing! Not good, right? The one that missing from my order was a boho long dress that i actually in love with the most...:(

So, on their website you can report any problem you got or if you are not satisfied with the products you received. So, i applied for the ticket! Less than 24 hr, i got a respond! And it was not a computer, it was a real person who basically answer your problem..
My item is actually out of stock, they offered me for the refund or change the order and no shipping cost! So, i am very happy with the service..THANK YOU!  

MORE RETURN POLICY check here

So here are some of the items that i got from Rosewholesale.com
And i mixed and matched them to brighten up my sunday!

Black knitted top with loose sleeves and over the hip length.

Get this top here or here

If you are looking for a long, comfy and loose sleeves top, you should try this one. I found this on rosewhole.com. Was looking for an off shoulder style top to wear with military hat and combat boots just to boost the winter street style! Voila! i am hooked!


elastic fabric made to follow your body shape



You can wear it as an off shoulder style! the collar is elastic to follow the shape or style that you want. It is very comfortable to wear this top and easy to mix+match with other fashion items. I pair it with black legging, military hat style, pairs of big cross earrings, combat boots with heels, bronze tone cuff bracelet and studded shoulder bag





I paired the top with the black legging. I am glad i found this legging! This winter season is really bothered me since i couldnt find any good thick legging to wear everyday here in US . Most of the leggings that i found here in US are pretty much thin and not warm at all, so i have to double the legging..kinda annoying and not comfy at all!!
I have a similar pair of this kind of legging i bought years ago in China, it made special for winter or cold season, so, on the inside the legging ( the lining )  is a thick material ( Bamboo Charcoal Fibre ) that will keep you warm! I spotted this legging on rosewholesale.com and i decided to buy another pair! HAPPY!!!



Find the Legging here


Rock and Roll style. Shoulder bag with rivets and tassels detailed. My favorite!!


Get the bag here

love the details. Rivets detailed all over the front side of the bag. 



can be used as shoulder bag short or long. 


Bronze carved cuff bracelet. 



Get the bracelet here
I love the carved details on this bracelet. The color also makes this bracelet looks chic!!






Military style hat with belt. 

I have been looking for this kind of 'captain' military style hat for a while and so happy i found it on rosewholesale.com
Get the hat here 


The visor is well made and sturdy. 


The rivet detailed on the both side and the belt makes the hat look fashionable. 

Lipstick : NARS - Heat Wave -



combat boots here


So, thats it for my sunday's story and outfit. Happy to share this with you! Hope you enjoy the post. G I V E A W A Y coming soon!!!!Whoop whoooppp!!!
 STAY TUNED, besties! 
XOXO
