Can I start out by saying that I have the best husband ever?! When Too Faced Cosmetics announced their Christmas in New York collection I was drooling over so many of the parts of it. Then all the big YouTubers started getting the PR packages of the Christmas in New York Collection and I wanted parts of it even more. THEN Sephora sent out an email that they were opening some of their holiday collections for Sephora VIB Rouge members to shop early. Knowing how much I wanted the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Sephora exclusive of the Christmas in New York set. Imagine my surprise when he told me that he ordered it for me and guess what! I also made my return to YouTube and filmed a swatch video of it for you as well!
Now that you’ve seen the swatches let’s talk a little about the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Set itself.
When you first get the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Set it comes inside of an outer box, pictured in the first picture at the top. Once you open that box you see what’s pictured directly above this and also a little booklet that has sample looks in it. This is the outer display of the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Set and it’s made of a hard cardboard material. You can actually lift the top off of the set and then fold the front down to reveal the eye shadow palette, the extra products, and the inner display… you know what let me just show you.
There you go now you can see the full Too Faced Chocolate Shop display opened up. As you can see the palette sits inside of some foam that is attached to the cardboard of the display. There is a little hole where you can put your finger to try to get the palette out of the foam, however, I find that I have better luck when I get the corner of the top out of the foam and then use that to pull the palette out. From there you can see that there is a little scene on the upper part and that is where the deluxe samples are housed. Let me bring you in closer to see what I’m talking about.
I just love how cute the scene is in the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Set. You should be able to see that on the left hand side that there’s a little street sign on the lamp that shows that they’re shopping on 5th Ave. If you look at the woman on the right you can see that she’s actually holding a Sephora bag! How cute is that for a Sephora exclusive! There is actually a little foam insert behind the outer part of the scene that is hidden by the outer scene that helps keep the deluxe samples standing. The deluxe samples included are Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, and Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquid Lipstick in Chocolate Milkshake. I will say that the Too Faced Shadow Insurance isn’t my favorite eye primer but it get’s the job done. The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is actually one of my Top 5 mascaras, I absolutely love the wand and formula…I should probably review it for the blog one day! As for the Too Faced Melted Chocolate Liquid Lipstick, I LOVE the formula and the way that it feels on the lips and the Chocolate Milkshake shade is AMAZING! I actually like the Melted Chocolate formula over the original Melted Liquid Lipsticks.
Now let’s talk about the best part of the Too Faced Chocolate Shop Set…the eye shadow palette. As you can see from the photo the front of the Too Faced Chocolate Shop eye shadow palette has a gorgeous little holiday scene on the cover that matches with the outer display as well. I don’t know if you can tell from this photo, you can see it better in the video, but the palette is actually made of a thick cardboard as well. I’m not usually a fan of cardboard palettes but this one is done really well. It’s thick enough that it closes pretty well, my only complaint though is that there isn’t a closure like an elastic band or magnetic closure.
Lastly let’s look at the inside of the Too Faced Chocolate Shop eye shadow palette. If you want to see swatches of the shadows make sure to check out the video above but let’s talk about the product themselves. These powdered products are cocoa powder-infused meaning that they all smell like chocolate! The three larger eye shadows in the palette are Dessert’s on Me, Glaze, and Banana Date. The eighteen smaller eye shadows in the palette are Indulge, Cookie Dough, Raspberry Rose, Sugared Raisin, Guilt-Free, Tootsie, Gingerdoodle, Chocaholic, Cake Batter, Butterscotch, Toffee Crunch, Lava Cake, Honey Dip, Pound Cake, Sugar Bells, Mint Chip, Jingle Berry, and Huckleberry. The three on the far right are the luminizer, Inner Light; bronzer, Chocolate Soleil; and blush, Chocolate Covered Strawberry.
Overall I really LOVE this palette and I’m so glad that my husband got it for me! If you like the look of it you should pick one up for yourself before it sells out!
