Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette

Hey guys! I don’t know about you but with all the holiday/black friday/cyber monday craziness I’ve kind of been living under a rock in terms of keeping up with new releases. Although it was partially self-induced after cringing at the insane amount of money spent solely on make up during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Some of them were gifts, I promise!
The Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette just hit Sephora today for Rouge and VIB members exclusively and be available to Beauty Insiders on 12/15. It launches on Too Faced's website on 12/26 and to Ulta on 1/18. This is the palette that follows the original Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette which is infamous for... You guessed it! Smelling like chocolate due to the cocoa infused into some of the shadows. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette was released last year around December as part of the Spring 2014 collection. The Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette retails for $49 and will be sold at SephoraToo Faced, and Ulta.

It contains 16 eyeshadows (14 which are 0.03 oz and 2 that are 0.07 oz). 8 of the eyeshadows are matte and 8 are shimmers. The shades are Licorice, Nougat, Truffled, Hot Fudge, Cocoa Chili, Pink Sugar, Puddin', Blueberry Swirl, Peanut Butter, Frosting, Rum Raisin, Mousse, Caramel, Bon Bon, Butter Pecan, and Coconut Crème. Seems like they heard everyone's complaint about the original Chocolate Bar Palette where the shades were only listed on the plastic insert as the names are now printed on the actual palette.
From Sephora's website:
"Inspired by Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, this Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette is a deeper, warmer version of the original coveted palette. Infused with the scent of sweet chocolate, this collection features 16 antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused shadows in matte and shimmer shades with warm caramels, deep mochas, bronzy chocolate, and vibrant sugared blueberry hues. These rich, high-pigment shades are perfect for any season, and it includes a signature how-to Glamour Guide to help you get started with three eye looks."
