Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette
Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.53 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows. It’s currently available to VIB/VIB Rouges at Sephora, but it will launch for everyone on December 15th and be in-store in January. I tested about half of the shades yesterday and will be testing the other half today, with a review hopefully tomorrow :)

Marc Jacobs Beauty is offering customized Lip Gel trios for $70 when you use code LIPKIT, now through 12/16. They’re normally $30 each, so it’s a savings of $20 (and brings down the individual cost to $23.33). I was able to add multiple trios (I ordered the ones I’m missing) as well, and they actually rang in at $23.33 (making it $69.99 for three).

When I was looking up the full price on Sephora for this post, I noticed that Sephora only had eight shades, while the full range stands at 17 (all available through the Marc Jacobs Beauty’s site), so now I’m wondering if these are on the chopping block… I sent an email over to the brand to see if we can find out what the status is of them and will update when I hear back.

Are you hauling any? (I did pick up some, and I selected 1-day shipping, so I can try to get them swatched for those considering–I will do my best!)

Temptalia Asks You


What would you love to see in a spring color collection? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI’d love to see a April-showers-bring-May-flowers kind of collection–where there’s an almost overcast, muted quality with deeper shades (so it’s not all pastel) paired with brighter, bolder floral hues (perhaps muted shades on the eyes, bolder hues for lips, or bolder blush).

Temptalia Asks You


How do you like to apply loose powder? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI like using a large, dense, slightly flat brush so that I can press the powder into the skin (better coverage/better setting in my experience) — almost like you would with a sponge but using a brush instead.
