Hello loves! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas with your family or loved one and a happy new year. Well I know that new years posts are all around and I am here doing a make up review. Honestly I am not super inspired to do anything related to 2015 and 2016 yet. I would have a lot to say though but I am in a period where I don't really want to talk about anything personal here. Who knows maybe I will come up with something in the coming weeks if I feel like writting.
Anyway here is my review on the Cocoa Contour palette from Too Faced. Last winter I remember buying one of the Too Faced chocolate bronzer and being a total fan of it. I then tried NARS Laguna and put the Too Faced one on the side but as I was hitting pan on it, I thought I would ask for a contouring palette for Christmas. Since I knew for sure the bronzers were good, I decided to get this one.
Packaging wise, once again Too Faced is simple on point. The palette is absolutely cute and comes with two bronzers, a matte light face powder and a highlighter. You also get a cute little brush that I find really convinient to contour. The palette also comes with a big mirror wich is once again really usefull. Concerning the products itself, I have a mix review. First I love the smell, it has the typical cacao sent of the Too Faced Chocolate range but it is not too overpowering. The first shade, Light Cocoa is a good setting powder, you can use it under your eyes to set your concealer, or if you have a faire skin tone, all around your face to set your foundation. I also love the shade Medium Cocoa that is a good shade for doing contouring, it is a non orangy bronzer that would suit faire to medium skin tone.
I am much more skeptical about the last two shades. Dark Cocoa is too dark for my skin tone, but I think I can still use it as an eye shadow for exemple since I really like to wear warm brown smoky eyes. But the real problem of the palette for me is the highlight shade Pop of Light. As in a lot of other cheeks or contour palette, it is a very shimmery shade, full of glitters that in my opinion don't really reflect the light very nicely. It is more like applying glitter on your cheekbones than a nice and settle highlight. However, I overall really like the palette! As usual you can't really be disapointed with Too Faced, and I can't wait to try more and more products from the brand!
