So it turns out that Marylander’s can’t handle 27 inches of snow in a week so we’ve been off since last Friday. Might as well be a second winter break, but I’m not complaining. I’m currently lounging on the couch catching up on what seems like hundreds of videos piled up in my YouTube subscription box and reviewing one of my favorite eye shadow palettes, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. I’ve had this palette for about six months now and I am more than ready to sit down and tell you all my thoughts on it. I will also include swatches, eye shadow names, and links to different places it can be purchased. I hope you enjoy and leave any product names you would like me to review below. Happy Friday, friends. With love, McKenz.
I absolutely adore the packaging of this Too Faced palette, it’s aimed to resemble a chocolate bar and the inside consists of 6 matte eyes shadows and 10 shimmers. With a warm tone range of shadows and a few fun, pops of color Too Faced has out done themselves with the creamy texture, chocolate scent, and wide range of colors. “Did you say chocolate scent??!” Yes I did, both this palette (Too Faced Chocolate Bar), and the second palette in the collection (Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar) are both infused with cocoa powder which creates the delicious smell.
Like I said this palette has sixteen shadows and like all palettes some shadows prove to be more pigmented than others. Keep in mind that some shadows don’t show up on my skin but do on my eyelids because my skin is far tanner than my eyelids. 🙂 Also, I will say that I truly do feel that these shadows appear twice as pigmented on the lid rather than swatched on the back of my arm, but that’s just my personal experience.
This is the first row in the palette (horizontally). Shadow names from top to bottom: triple fudge (matte), black forest truffle, milk chocolate (matte), white chocolate (matte), and gilded ganache.
Unfortunately this picture is a little blurry, sorry friends! This is the second row in the palette. Shadow names from top to bottom: amaretto, candied violet, strawberry bon bon, semi-sweet, marzipan, and salted caramel.
This is by far my favorite row in the palette and is the third. Shadow names from top to bottom: champagne truffle, cherry cordial, haute chocolate, creme brulee, and hazelnut.
I find this palette similar to the Naked Palette in some aspects. Although I do find this more versatile; with peach, maroon, bronze, and gold shades all in one. And if I’m being honest, it’s very rare I ever reach for the smokey shades in my Naked palette anyways.
Also, this palette retails for $49.00 and can be purchased on the Too Faced website, Sephora, or Ulta. I would give this palette a 7.5 for pigmentation, an 8.5 for texture, and a 9 for wear time. Over all, I would rate the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette an 8.5/10 and definitely worth the purchase.
