Too Faced are a brand that I’ve been desperate to try for some time now. I finally got a good taster of the brand over Christmas when I picked up the Better Than Sex Mascara and then finally received the Chocolate Bar palette that was top of my wishlist for a while. Whilst I may have more than enough neutral eyeshadow palettes for the time being, I couldn’t resist this chocolate themed and scented (!) palette. Rightly so, it has been a very well welcomed palette into my collection and one I would highly suggest for those neutral eyeshadow lovers out there!
Starting with all the outer packaging details. If you are familiar with the Too Faced brand then I am sure you will be aware of their fun and well thought out packaging. With a chocolate theme, Too Faced have designed this palette with that in mind with a cute brown chocolate bar shaped hard casing with a magnetic closure. The palette is actually pretty weighty too but not overly bulky. Inside features a mirror on one side of the palette which personally isn’t of interest to me but I am sure it appeals to many. The palette itself retails for £39 which isn’t too bad considering it offers 16 shades particularly in comparison to the UD Naked palettes.
The palette features a mix of both matte and shimmer shades as well as two larger sized lighter highlighting shades. I have absolutely no complains surrounding the formulas of the shadows, the mattes are beautifully buttery and soft whilst the shimmers are pigmented and smooth. I definitely recommend the Too Faced eyeshadow formula from using this palette and I definitely want to try more of their palettes! The shades have the most perfect names, all chocolate inspired with the likes of Salted Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Triple Fudge etc. Infused with cocoa powder, the shadows also have an amazing cocoa scent to make the palette seem even more edible! The shades are pretty warmed toned and mostly all wearable. Some of my favourites include, Champagne Truffle; a gorgeous champagne-y highlight shade, Milk Chocolate; the perfect soft matte brown shade and Creme Brulee and Hazelnut; two shimmery gold-y bronze shades. I sound like I am describing a box of chocolates! Overall, a gorgeous wearable palette all with great workable formulas, I couldn’t recommend it enough!
