I caved a few weeks ago and purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. Wow, this smells SO good! It smells just like the Chocolate Soleil bronzer from Too Faced. Let’s cut to the photos!
I love the old-timey feel to this palette. Look at that font!
This palette has sixteen shadows in an array of matte and shimmery shades. There’s nothing in here that is overly glittery (at least not to me- It isn’t UD Dust or Midnight Cowboy). In a sea of neutral palettes, Too Faced has managed to come up with something very unique. All of the shadows are pigmented, including the matte shades. I think Too Faced does mattes very well; if you have their matte eye palette, you already know this!
The palette is full of warm browns and neutral shades, including gold and champagne. It also has that beautiful brown/burgundy shade, Cherry Cordial, and a purple sparkly shade, Candied Violet.
Here are some swatches in varied lighting. If you love brown eye shadows, you will be very happy with this palette. It contains a lovely balance of transition shades, lid shades, and highlight shades. The color payoff is great, and the shadows are easy to blend.
Personally, I am in love with this palette and see this becoming a favorite of mine. Some may find fault in the fact that there’s no black shadow here, but that isn’t a color I reach for often. The shade names are also not listed anywhere in the palette, but they are on the box and the little insert that comes with it. Since the shades are easy to access via pictures online, they aren’t hard to find if you pitch those items. I’m not usually pointing out to someone in my day-to-day life that I’m wearing a particular shade in the crease. 😉
This palette is $49, so it’s a little less than Urban Decay’s Naked line up, and also includes four more shades. If you are debating between this palette and one of the Naked palettes, I recommend visiting Sephora or Ulta to compare them in person.
