The Chocolate Bar palette by Too Faced is so charming with its 100% natural cocoa powder and delicious chocolate scent. My man always likes smelling it on my face, hehe. The antioxidants in it are also supposedly good for your face, but I really rather rely on my own diet for that, heh.
This palette has a nice array of sweet browns, and there’s surprisingly not one shade I don’t like!
The pretty pink box tricked Danny into thinking I ordered us a big bar of fancy chocolate! What’s worse than a fake bar of chocolate? A fake bar of chocolate counterfeit. Some swift karma…
Thought I had two of them? Pfft, no.
I accidentally bought a counterfeit a while ago.
The seller jumped ship and I was reimbursed before it even arrived. It was still on its way anyway and I was hoping for at least a good joke and an ACTUAL, USEFUL bar of edible choco. Oh well. Free is free.
It’s been getting dusty and I’ve never actually even touched the fake, but I thought I’d add it to the WWW’s cesspool of knowledge as well.
The real palette is on top and the fake on bottom:
So it’s sort of
close but obviously not. Just by looking at the two, Semi-Sweet and Strawberry Bon Bon (two middle shades) are blatantly off. The real palette shows up bolder in the swatches and looks of better quality, while the fake palette has duller colors and isn’t as strong.
⇙ REAL ~~~~ FAKE ⇘
Some of the easy-to-notice warning signs:
- Depressing absence of the chocolatey goodness smell
- Label sheet has a pink font instead of the original light purple
- “Chocolate Bar” label is brown with no detailing (below)
Who knows what kind of ingredients are in the counterfeit anyways… I’m actually glad I only bought the real one recently because it now comes in a slim case!
About the real palette only…
- THE SMELL, THE SMELL
- Chocolate. That is all.
- Lots of good browns + others
- No parabens, sulfates,
- Longevity is alright
- Made w/ talc, mica, and
other potentially harmful

*SIGH* I have only several marimo now. I used to have SIXTEEN
a couple or few years ago but I gifted my babies away. I wrote about them a while ago
about how I miss them. I still miss them.
SO I MADE MARIMO PIXELS!

’s Satin Lipstick in Photo
is probably my lips’ soulmate! It’s not as dramatically dark as the Film Noir shade (though
I do like that one too), so it’s perfect for any time!
The color glides right on and stays put for four hours at the very least. My lips rarely feel dry at all with this, and it also doesn’t leave an odd color when it fades, thank the gods.
I sort of forgot but I got Photo for either $16 or $18.
- Satiny moist feels
- Rich color
- Graceful fade
- Decent longevity
- Contains mica

Belated fall season pixel gifts are here!
Since it’s winter already, I decided to do a Nightmare Before Christmas thing. I haven’t been active much
so I just made gifts for my button swappies.
GIFTS ON THE RIGHT ⇘
AND YES, I’m making Christmas pixel gifts later this month too.
And I’m uploading Halloween and Christmas pixels to my pixel castle for you to use! I turned the Oubliette tower in the east wing
into the holiday pixel page.
Start exploring here.
Every December, the Honolulu Christmas lights are up and it’s ..well, it’s actually been the same stuff every year since I was a child… except for the always-whimsical decorated tree collection inside Honolulu Hale.
And this year seemed to have a fairy-tale theme. So perfect!
This is much less than half of the displays but these are my top favorite! There were dolls, stuffed animals, electronic butterflies, mushrooms, a tree with a face, a fog machine, and much more! The woodland fairy theme really hit the spot for me.
Winter in Hawaii is pretty much how the rest of the year is. It does get cold but maybe only to 60 degrees, which is probably nothing but I’m freezing!What’s winter like for you?
