Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette ($49) is a new deeper, warmer version of the original Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette that launched with the Too Faced Spring 2015 Collection recently.
I really liked the original Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette but wasn’t so sure about the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette version but after trying it I’m pretty darn impressed.
MAC Smoky Black Friday Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow Trio ($25) is an online exclusive eyeshadow palette MAC launched for Black Friday 2014. I’m a little late with this review but it is still up and available on MAC’s website so if you enjoy the review and swatches you can still grab this one up!
MAC launches this as a brand only online exclusive as they did with past Black Friday Collections. If you were hoping for a lipsticks like year’s past it might have disappointed you that this year they went with an eyeshadow. Typically I love the Veluxe Pearlfushion Shadow formula so I was quite ok with this launch.
The Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($44) is a new palette for Spring 2015 that contains 12 all matte eyeshadows. Yes, all matte. The best part about the Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette is the fact it will be available as part of the Tarte permanent collection unlike the limited edition release of the Tarte Be MATTEnificent Amazonian Colored Clay Matte Eye & Cheek Palette!

There are new Covergirl Eyeshadow Quads for Spring 2015 popping up at drugstores! They actually have three color variations available for these new Covergirl Eyeshadow Quads which makes for a rather small release. I’m wondering if they are permanent or limited edition but my gut tells me they are likely permanent and will get a larger launch with more shades as we near the new year.
These are interesting because they look a lot like Maybelline Eye Studio Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads and also because they are actually pretty nicely formulated. Sorry to Covergirl fans but I’ve always found their shadow formula very dry but these are completely a reinvention and very much like the texture and formula of Maybelline’s version.

As with year’s past we get new, limited edition Holiday 2014 Eyeshadow Palettes from MAC. The MAC Keepsakes Eyeshadow Palette is the traditional MAC Holiday Eyeshadow Palette with six shades of eyeshadow that we get ever year. The thing about the Holiday eyeshadow palettes is they are not only affordable but also house a nice selection of shadows that pair up well together. However, after a while they actually become a little repetitive from year after year if you purchase them every season.
I’ve always loved them but unfortunately quality has gone downhill in recent releases and I think if the rest of the shade selections in this release is as bad as the MAC Keepsakes Eyeshadow Smoky Eyes Eyeshadow Palette you might be able to skip ’em!
