Marshalls Haul – High End and Drugstore Beauty

I am that person that strolls through Marshalls once a week. It’s so hard not to when I live less than a mile away! Plus, their deals are so great. I especially love walking down the beauty aisle, the location closest to me finally started to carry a wider selection of high end/luxury brands – recently there has been TONS of Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced, Marc Beauty, Lancome, Kat Von D, and more! On the drugstore end, I see tons of Maybelline, Real Techniques, Profusion, Makeup Revolution, and Elf.

Anti-Haul: Beauty Brands and Products I Won’t Be Purchasing

My first ever anti-haul! The beauty industry is constantly growing and new products are being released left and right, it’s nearly impossible to catch up! That being said, I feel there are quite a few products that are hyped up so much when the products themselves don’t seem appealing, innovative, etc. Moreover, I know it’s “just makeup” but there are a few brands I refuse to support for various reasons..when you see the names, you’ll more than likely know why. If you don’t, you’re welcome to google it and see why – I’m just one of many who have the similar feelings!

Anti-Haul: Makeup I refuse to Purchase

Just to be clear, if I mention a single product that doesn’t mean I dislike the brand whatsoever. Every brand has hits and misses, I’m just sharing the products I feel aren’t worth purchasing for MY own needs.

Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette First Impressions + Swatches

Too Faced launched two palettes in time for the holidays recently – their Matte Chocolate Chip Palette and White Chocolate Chip Palette. I picked up the latter when it was available to VIB Rouge members on the Sephora site. I thought I’d do a quick first impressions and show some swatches before they restocked their website since I’ve seen many people show interest in wanting to get their hands on this palette!

This palette is available on Sephora’s website for $26 and comes with 11 cocoa powder infused pastel, creamy nudes, and a pop of black shades. It’s currently sold out but they should be restocking soon. 
The first thing I noticed about this palette is that it’s small and sleek.

Like REALLY small. It’s smaller than my mom’s iphone 5.
And the pan sizes are insanely small. The big pan holds 1.5 grams of product while the 10 smaller pans have 0.5 grams each making the total amount of product in this palette 6.5 grams. This is about a third of the amount included in the original Chocolate Bar which has 18.9 grams of product for $49. 
Simply comparing the amount of product in each palette doesn’t make the White Chocolate Chip Palette worth it to me. You get less than half the amount of product while the cost is more than half of what the original Chocolate Bar. At first I tried to justify the small pan sizes with the fact that I hardly ever go hit pan on my shadows but my view changed once I swatched these shadows. I used very little product in my swatches and feel like I already used up a ton of product. Hopefully that isn’t the case but seeing the dents I made with one use doesn’t keep my hopes up.
Shades top to bottom: Glaze, Ambriosa, Exotica, Pearl Candy, Raspberry Rose, Indulge, Guilt Free, Cake Batter, Cookie Dough, Sugared Raisin, Black Sugar
I do like the color range of the shadows, however, I feel like there are more nudes than pastels. Before I played around with the shadows, I expected the shimmers to outperform the mattes but it was the opposite. I had to layer up the shimmer shades to build up the swatches. Most of the mattes are good in my opinion, but not impressive. They’re extremely powdery and a few had to be built up. 
Final Thoughts
Pros: Cute packaging, the cocoa scent is great, and color range is something I’d use
Cons: Amount of product provided, formula isn’t as great as I hoped it to be, especially the shimmery shades. 
If you’re a beauty enthusiast who wants this in your collection, then I’d say why not – but don’t have your hopes up. If you’re someone who’s on the market for a new palette, I’d say skip this and splurge on a Lorac Palette, especially if their holiday ones are still available ($18 only!) or even an Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
If you’re willing to try something new, I’d say go with an indie brand such as Touch of Glam BeautyDevinah Cosmetics, or JD Glow Cosmetics!
What are your thoughts on the White Chocolate Chip Palette? Will you be purchasing it if you have not already?
