At $15 bucks on sale at Ulta.com might I suggest snatching up the Too Faced Candy Bar Palette & Phone Case for yourself or as a gift?

This cute palette features eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, AND a case for your iPhone 5.

Tell me what more could a girl want?

Too Faced Candy Bar Palette

This is the second time that Too Faced launched a palette that was snapped into a iPhone case! They did two variations for the Holiday 2013 as well. the palette itself is housed in a plastic compact with a clear lid so you can pop it out of the iPhone case easily and store it without having to keep it INSIDE the iPhone case at all times. The actually iPhone case looks like a cute unwrapped chocolate! Could me juvenile but I love this packaging, it’s cute and I like getting an accessory for my phone with my makeup purchase. Of course, it stinks if you aren’t an iPhone user…hopefully Too Faced will create options for other phones in the future.

The palette is a little flimsy just a warning so it could crack or break if you travel with it. The makeup inside is also not what you’d typically get from Too Faced as the shadows and face products are a bit sheerer and less velvety than what you’d typically get from Too Faced. But for $15? It’s like you get the color portion for free and merely paid for the iPhone face.

The palette contains 11 eyeshadows, one bronzer, and one blush. I wish they made the blush a permanent shade as it is a lovely coral! The only real issues I had with the palette was the wells are a bit small so you can wriggle a blush brush or eyeshadow brush into them so well. Aside from that the formula is quite good. The shadows are smooth, soft, and blend easily. As I mentioned they aren’t the typical Too Faced formula but they aren’t bad either! They have fairly good pigment as well. The blush is gorgeous! It’s a bright, pigmented shade of coral. The bronzer is equally nice and on par with the Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer (but it doesn’t smell like chocolate).

This was originally priced at $25, I’d personally say it’s good at around $20 but on sale at $15? Even BETTER!

You can grab yours for $15 now at Ulta.com.

Anyone own it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I just returned mine. It was horrible 🙁 Shadow would not blend and was so dry. Lasted maybe 5 hours I was so disappointed. This was way different from what I’m used to from Too Faced. However, I am looking forward to the two new palettes tomorrow, Nashville and Rock n’ Roll!
