Too Faced Christmas in New York – The Chocolate Shop. #toofaced

I have to say I was really excited about this Sephora Exclusive from Too Faced. When I had heard the palette had 24 shades in it, I freaked out! This item is EXCLUSIVE to Sephora so, if you want to snag this, that is where you need to go. I did go to the store yesterday and I did not see these on display. However, I had already ordered this the day it launched from their website. Let’s take a closer look and what is included and some swatches of this perfect Christmas gift (or an early present, or an impulse buy. Really, go get it :p)

The packaging is super adorable. There are iconic New York buildings that wrap around the box and a totally cute pink bow on the top. There is also a mini look book with 4 looks that you can check out to start using this palette right away.

When you lift off the top of the box, you can lay down the front panel and see the 5th Avenue scene of a man and a woman walking past a Chocolate Shop with their adorable dog leading the way. Inside there is a palette and three travel sized products.

You get a travel sized Melted Chocolate lipstick in Chocolate Milkshake, a Better Than Sex Mascara and a 24 hour Shadow Insurance.

You can take the palette out and the box scene has been recreated on the inner panel.

At first glance I was very impressed with the color selection. There is a nice neutral range and various pops of color to create a plethora of looks. You also get a pot of Chocolate Soleil contouring shade, Inner light highlighter and Chocolate Covered Strawberry blush.

1-6swatches

I’m really into metallic/foils right now so I really like the Sugared Raisin from the first 6 swatches. Butterscotch also has a very rich pigment. Glaze almost matches my skin tone perfectly and I think this would make a very good color for an eye shadow base.

Mint Chip is absolutely stunning and Indulge would make a great inner eye highlighter.

13-19swatches

A lot of browns and golds here, but can we take a moment to just take in Honey Dip. EEEHHHH it’s so pretty… and I don’t even really like Gold shades!

20-26

The last 6 swatches are my favorite. I would wear every one of these colors allll the time! Huckleberry had these little purple glitter flakes in it and Jingle Berry is beautiful! Pound Cake looks good enough to eat. The last three swatches are Inner Light (Highlighter), Chocolate Soleil (Contour), and Chocolate Covered Strawberry (Blush).

Overall, this is a purchase that is worth the $$. It retails for $58 ($312, value) and is only sold at Sephora! The sheer amount of colors to choose from is amazing and I’m already planning all the looks I can create with this. Not that this could get any better… but the entire palette smells like chocolate!

Let me know what you think about this collection. Do you like it? Hate it? Want to buy 20 of them to have later on? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
