For a detailed look at what's inside this set (with swatches) keep reading! But don't wait too long if you want this one because, again, it's only availble for the next 24 hours...
Too Faced recently sent me this set, so I'm able to give you a detailed look at what's inside:
Too Faced Better Than Chocolate Natural Beauty Essentials Set
Once again, this set is $49 on the HSN website for 24 hours only with free shipping and Flex-Pay. The total retail value of this set is $103.71.
Here's what you will receive:
You are literally getting a full-size mascara, a full-size lipstick and a deluxe primer FREE, since the palette alone retails for the entire price of this set. Here's a closer look:
You will also receive a Cocoa Powder Foundation sample card:
Full-size Better Than Sex Mascara
(Made in Italy)
Full-size La Créme Lip Cream in Nude Beach
(Made in Canada)
Deluxe Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer
(Made in USA)
Full-size Chocolate Bar Palette
(Made in USA)
Just in case you were curious, you will receive the newer-style, slimmer packaging. I purchased the Chocolate Bar palette from HSN last year when it still had the older-style, bulkier packaging (see above). I much prefer the newer, sleeker, slimmer packaging.
If you are new to this palette, the shadows are made with REAL COCOA POWDER and they have a real cocoa fragrance. This palette smells so delicious, I often open it just to take a whiff (yes, I just admited that!).
I love the detailing around the mirror:
So yes, this palette is adorable and it smells delicious. But the shadows are also superb. With the exception of one shade (I think Triple Fudge is a bit dry and stiff), all of the shadows in this palette have a smooth consistency, incredible pigmentation and they are very easy to work with. They are incredible when worn over primer (I of course used Too Faced Shadow Insurance for the swatches below), but even without primer these shadows are beautiful:
It's a little too early for me to give you a mini-review of the Better Than Sex Mascara and Lip Creme in Nude Beach, because I have only had those products in my possesion for short period of time. But from the few times I've used them, I can understand the hype. The mascara provides some great volume and length and it does a very nice job at separating and defining as well. The Lip Creme has a shiny finish and it's quite moisturizing; the color is a light pinky-nude. As for the Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer, well I've been using that primer for years now and it's one of my very favorites. Even though you don't receive a full-size tube, it's still a generous amount of product that should last you a long time since you only need a tiny amount per application.
Of course the real star of this show is the Chocolate Bar Palette, which as I mentioned above, I have owned for about a year now. It's one of my very favorite palettes in my collection because both the shimmers and mattes are extremely easy to work with, they are highly pigmented and the colors are downright stunning in person (and also quite versatile). Plus, it's made with real cocoa powder and it smells like chocolate. What's not to love?
If you have room in your budget for this set, I say GET IT NOW, since it will only be available for 24 hours at this price (with free shipping and Flex-Pay). I honestly don't think you'll regret it (especially at this price!).
