Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Review and Swatches

Last week, I posted about a new Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette that was just released at Sephora called Semi Sweet ($49). Currently, it's only available to VIB and VIB Rouge members, but it'll be available to everyone starting on Monday, 12/15!
It's described as a "warmer, deeper" version of the original Chocolate Bar. I was hoping for a cool-toned version since the original palette was warm already. I find that cooler tones look better on me since I have fair skin with pink undertones.

The outside of the palette is very much like the original and resembles a chocolate bar, although this version is lighter brown, sort of like milk chocolate vs. dark.



This palette contains mostly brown-toned shades with a pop of blue and a black shade. There's also a pink glitter called Pink Sugar that was the only shade in the palette that didn't swatch or apply well. It had a lot of fallout and just left a ton of glitter behind without much pigment. The rest of the shades were soft, buttery and smooth and just a dream to apply.

Here's a quick video tutorial from the Sephora website that shows a beautiful look using the Semi Sweet palette:

Overall, I'm really happy with the pigmentation (except for Pink Sugar) and the colors are gorgeous, though I'm a little disappointed that it's another warm-toned palette.  Here's hoping the next Chocolate Bar (if there is another one) will be cool-toned and then I'll be in heaven!
Will you be adding the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar to your holiday wishlist, gifting it to someone, or just splurging on it yourself?

  1. I think I like it and I think it is warm toned now that I have seen clearer pictures of it. Will just Sephora have it first?

    1. I should also say that these were swatched over Urban Decay's Primer Potion so that helps them to look more vibrant and smooth.
