My makeup favorites – The chocolate bar palette!

Recently, I got more and more into the makeup world and youtube has a lot to do with my new obsession. I don’t know if you have noticed but there are a lot of make up artists that share some amazing tips and tricks on their youtube channels.  I own my obsession for makeup to Jaclyn Hill. She is a professional makeup artist that I have discovered a few months ago. I got absolutely hooked on her channel. She is sooo funny and her makeup tutorials are really easy to follow. If you haven’t already, go check out her videos because she is amazing!

So since a lot of youtubers have been talking about this palette, I had to give it a go. What I am talking about is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. I know that for some of you this palette might be a little expensive (it costs 45€ here in Italy) but if you’re looking for really good quality eye shadows that will last a long time this is the right palette for you. These eye shadows are 100% made with cocoa powder. Yep you read that right. 100% cocoa powder. They smell absolutely incredible. You’ll feel like eating them all the time basically. Although they are very pigmented, I like to wet my brush before applying them. It will make them look super bright and beautiful. One of the coolest things about this palette is the name of the shadows. For example my favorite colour is Gilded Ganache, which is a rich military green colour that I have been using a lot to do a different smokey eye instead of using the usual black shadow.

You also get White chocolate, Strawberry Bon Bon, Hazelnut, Creme Brulee, Salted Caramel and many more. You also have an highlighter called Champagne Truffle that will look absolutely gorgeous on your cheek bones. So I highly recommend this palette. Let me know what do you guys think!

Another product that I have been using almost everyday this summer is the Rimmel lipstick by Kate Moss number 20. It is a bright pink shade that will look amazing either with a nude look on your eyes, or with a smokey eye. It is not super matt but not so shiny either. It is a texture in between. It applys really easily. It almost feels like a lip balm. This shade is perfect for summer. I think that it would look gorgeous with a tan.

Last but not least, I have been loving the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in the shade Soft beige. I love this foundation because it feels very light on the skin and since I sweat a lot in the summer it’s perfect for me. It almost feels like a BB cream. It doesn’t feel heavy and it is definetly buildable. You can work with the tinyest amount and build it up if you want a higher coverage. It also has SPF in it so it’s truly perfect.

I hope you enjoyed this little blog post on my favorite beauty products at the moment. If you have any of them or if you would like to try them out let me know in the comments down below.
