Too Faced Melted & Metallic Chocolate Lipsticks Review And Swatches

Friday, February 5, 2016

When Too Faced came out with their Melted and Melted Metal lipsticks, there were some I liked and many I didn't like (here, here, here & here). For me it wasn't so much the formula, but the colors. This year, they've released a MELTED CHOCOLATE collection! I absolutely LOVE these. The colors are wearable. They smell like chocolate & vanilla (think chocolate cupcake w/frosting & sprinkles). No joke! They feel really good to the lips! I purchased all six and my thoughts on each are below.

There are SIX (6) Melted Chocolate lipsticks. If you look at the caps on each tube, three (3) of the caps have a matte finish and three (3) have a gold-tone (shiny) finish. The one's with the gold tone, shiny finish are Melted METALLIC Chocolate ;) This is important to know when purchasing. I didn't realize this, until I took the picture above. LOL >.<  I just saw CHOCOLATE and bought all 6. LOL

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Honey

This is a gorgeous nude, that has enough warmth to compliment every skin tone. I love it! It applies beautifully and has me singing Mariah Carey's song Honey! HaHaHa "Honey, you can't describe ... how good it feels ..."  >.<

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Milkshake

Praise the Lord! Halleleujah! Chocolate Milkshake is a grown up pink! It's pink, brown & peach mixed in one! Gorgeous color! Very nice! "My milkshake brings all the boys ...." >.<  This one definitely will! When Too Faced releases their PEACH eyeshadow palette later this year, this will compliment many of the colors in the palette.

Too Faced Melted Chocolate Cherries

Ok, this one is not for everyone. It's bold! It's vamp! It's a really dark cherry wine color. I think this would look fabulous on darker skin tones. It has a gorgeous shine to it. I have pretty full lips, but I would definitely want to bronze up (face) to carry this off.

Too Faced Melted METALLIC Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen Hot Chocolate is a beautiful soft brown shade with shimmer. Think chocolate frost.


Too Faced Melted METALLIC Chocolate Diamonds

If you want your eyes to twinkle, purchase chocolate diamonds. It has LOTS of sparkle! The color is very unique. It's pure shimmer & frost! The only hangup I have about this one, is when you go to remove it SPARKLE will be everywhere! LOL This is a party lipstick! I wouldn't wear it to work. It also transfers sparkle.

Too Faced Melted METALLIC Candy Bar

Candy Bar is a little lighter than a milk chocolate brown. It's more like a dark toffee. 
Truly gorgeous! See it in ACTION in my Snapchat below!

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches & Giveaway

Thursday, February 4, 2016

Life is a box of bon bons, according to Too Faced! They released their third chocolate palette and it is called ... Chocolate Bon Bons! Just like an assortment of real bon bons, you get a little bit of EVERYTHING when it comes to colors! The first row of shades had me tickled pink (well really neutral)! The neutral shades were fab! Their pigmentation was excellent! One swipe of each and I was like WOO HOO...GO TOO FACED! The second row of shades are just as beautiful, but a little softer in tone (as you'll see from my swatches, but still very much pigmented). The only one I was disappointed with in the second row was Black Currant. In the pan, it looks to be a very dark & rich purple ... it's not. It's much lighter than what I expected. The third row is BAM...IN YOUR FACE...BOLD! Totally Fetch is the "misfit" shade of this palette! It's a super hot pink and I applaud anyone who can work it (I know there are that can ... So this one is for you) but it SURE AIN'T ME! My hot pink days are OVER! LOL I am in love with Earl Grey! You don't see many grey eye shadows out there, and I needed one in my life. Love the outer packaging! It's always cute. The only packaging gripe with the palette that I have, is that it closes...but it doesn't close well! So when traveling, keep it in it's box or put it in a cosmetic case/ziploc bag .... or else you will have a MESS. Too Faced needs to work on a proper closure for these palettes. They give you a glamour guide of makeup looks to get you started with your palette. It has a mirror (sorry ... not sorry I covered it up with faux sweets). And it smells like SWEET, YUMMY, DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE! To compare this palette to the other one's CLICK HERE. Too Faced is coming out with a PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY EYE SHADOW PALETTE February 28th (Too Faced & Ulta) and later this Summer a PEACH EYE SHADOW PALETTE (now this is the one to SWOON over ... The colors look amazing)! As every year, I'm giving away a Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette to one lucky reader of A Very Sweet Blog! OPEN WORLDWIDE! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter! Read the rules in fine print. Good Luck My Loves! More Valentine themed makeup & product reviews through Valentine's Day ;)

The Ritz Carlton: Maison Orleans Club

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Yesterday, I showed you The Ritz Carlton Hotel in New Orleans. Today, I would like to show you the suite I stayed in for the weekend. The Ritz Carlton New Orleans has rooms, suites and a Maison Orleans Club Level. The suites at the Maison Orleans Club Level are as follows: Club King - featured below, Club Executive Suite and in my dreams --> Maison Orleans Suite. There are a lot of perks if you stay in one of these suites. You will feel like a princess! Let's start with the bed  >.<

THIS is what (my) sweet dreams are made of...
I felt like Marie Antoinette in this canopy bed. It was very dreamy!

The Ritz Carlton at Club Level provides complimenting dry cleaning/pressing/laundry service, has evening turn down service and they will leave dark & milk chocolate on your bed :)

Classic books, pictures and artwork fill the room. 
There are even traveler magazines & a cappucino maker.

There was an Honor Bar filled with sweet & salty treats, champagne, drinks, spirits and even a cd. 
These however are NOT complimentary, as you will see from the price list. LOL  >.<
Why are snickers so tempting here and not as much in a store, where there are thousands! HaHaHa ;)

Oh yes! The bathroom. There's an oversize bathtub, shower and they give you a bathrobe & slippers.

And then there's room service. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Anything your little heart desires.
They even offer beignets with an assortment of dipping sauces.
Room service is not free, but remember everyone at club level gets private access to the club lounge.
That was shown in my previous post and you saw how good the food was there :)

And the reason why I was here? I attended a Broadway show at The Saenger Theatre.
It's only a couple of blocks from the hotel.

As you can see, I really enjoyed my stay at The Ritz Carlton New Orleans.
Everyone was so nice and accommodating (on all levels).
But I have to give a big shout out to the valet team!
They gave us a ride to Mardi Gras World and picked us up :) I felt very VIP. Thank You!
