Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Palette - Look #1

So I bought this palette when it was first released to VIB Rouges and immediately, I saw a bunch of mixed reviews regarding this palette. I don't own the original chocolate palette, but I wanted to try this out by myself and make my own determination as to whether I liked it or not.

To create this look I used the following shades:
- Coconut Creme on brow bone.
- Mousse - crease
- Peanut Butter - define the crease with a smaller brush
- Puddin - to further define the crease.
- Licorice - outer V
- Blueberry Swirl - on top of Licorice, it was the only way I could make the blue pop.
- Pink Sugar on the inner part of the lid (the light part without the Blueberry Swirl) for some glitter.

Make sure you blend well in each step so you don't have any harsh lines!

Review: I've read the con's were that it wasn't pigmented enough. I found all colours to be butter smooth and super blendable. The only exception is Blueberry Swirl, which could only pack a punch if layered over Licorice. If placed alone, it would be a light blue wash and you would have to really build a few layers.  Another colour I read some negative reviews for, were Pink Sugar, how it had no purpose in the palette. I really think that this was meant to be a glitter that you could layer over other colours for a glitter effect. If you think of it that way, then I see a reason for it to be there since I don't own any glitter pigments.

I really hope you enjoy this look! Part of my New Years Resolution is to create more looks and posting tutorials about them. I seem to get good feedback on Instagram and social media about it.
Have you tried the Semi-Sweet Palette? Would you??

Until next time - XO, M.
