Sneak Peek: Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar and Kat Von D Interstellar Palettes!

Can you believe the spring makeup collections will be appearing soon? I can’t, but then I am the kind of person that is always On time–not early, not late, but right ON TIME. As a Sephora VIB ( you would expect nothing less of me) I was allowed early access to these two new palettes so I wanted to share my first impressions with you.

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar ($49) – is an antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused eye shadow palette with 16 matte and shimmer shades that smells like cocoa! This is a warmer, deeper version of the popular Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette from last spring which, incidentally is going on my “Best of 2014.” I hope I will love semi-sweet as much as the original–the shadows look gorgeous in the pan!
