It hasn’t been that long since I told you guys about my skin care routine. Just last September I posted an overview of the skin care products I was using. I’ve recently replaced a couple of products (mainly because I had run out), so I thought I’d share them with you! Even though it’s technically not Winter yet, it has been getting a bit cold here in Vegas, so I’m calling this my Winter skin care. Lucky for me it doesn’t get cold super cold here (unlike Kentucky where I used to live!).
Have you heard? There’s a new chocolate bar eye shadow palette coming out by Too Faced! It’s called the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette and it contains 16 eyeshadows. It is described as a ‘deeper, warmer version’ of the original Chocolate Bar palette. Right now it’s only available to Sephora VIB (Rouge) members, but on December 15 (this Monday) it will be available to every beauty junkie out there and their friends and family! The palette costs $49. Another great gift idea!

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. Now available for VIB and VIB Rouges at Sephora.
You might remember that I’m trying to ‘shop my stash’, as they say, and use ALL my makeup in my collection. No more makeup that is too pretty to use, too expensive or too rare to use! From now on, I will not buy makeup just to ‘have’. So continuing my resolution of using my expensive eyeshadow palettes (details here), I finally broke down and used my Chanel Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quad! This is an eyeshadow palette with 4 colors, just like the Estee Lauder Signature Eyeshadow Quad I put my brushes in a month ago. This is the look I came up with. Very quick and easy, nothing too elaborate of course, you know me!
