Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: Six Month Review

Saturday, 12 August 2017

Equipped with vouchers from Christmas I decided to venture into the realm of Too faced in my local Debenhams as for once I could afford another high end beauty palette. I originally had planned on getting one of the Naked Palettes as I already have a few Urban Decay eye shadows and lipsticks. In a post-New year mindset though I left my beauty comfort zone to try something new.


 
I will admit that going for an almost cult beauty product which many speak highly of isn’t exactly an adventure but I was excited to try it so I purchased the chocolate bar palette. It’s been out for years so there are probably a number of reviews but I thought I’d add to them with a six month review by yours truly.
The palette consists of 16 shades which are a mixture of matte and shimmers, ranging from light to dark shades which I was quite impressed with as it is so versatile. From pearlised pinks to dark chocolates it provides for most occasions and still has the famed chocolate scent after 6 months. (This pleases me so much even if I do crave chocolate just a little every time I use it.)


Too faced are known for good quality lasting shadows so I can say I am not disappointed at all with the pigmentation. All it takes is a lone sweep of a colour and the shade I desire for that day is packed on my eyelid due to the phenomenal pay off. The shades blend so easily creating many seamless looks and allowing you an effortless yet beautiful  finish.
I’m really happy with the range of shades included in the palette and can say I’ve used all the shades more than once. The lighter shade ‘strawberry bonbon’ I find is perfect as a pinky base to light shimmer looks with ‘white chocolate’ and ‘champagne truffle’ to highlight the brow bone and provide the finishing touch to any look.
This is only 7 swatches as the other photo didn't turn out too well:
Strawberry bonbon, Cherry cordial, Black forrest truffle, candied violet,
triple fudge, amaretto and champagne truffle

My favourite shades in the entire palette I would have to say are ‘crème brulee’ which is a gorgeous bronze with gold undertones and ‘hazelnut’, a darker brown shimmer. (Yes, they are probably fairly similar, but I love a bronzy gold based eye for summer.) Recently though I have been reaching more for ‘marzipan,’ a shimmery light copper for all over the lid and running ‘salted caramel,’ a matte peachy orange, in my crease. I think this might just be an early preparation for my orange toned autumn looks with a dark red lip, but I love it!



My most used shades are probably ‘triple fudge’ and ‘semi-sweet’ due to how I decided to use these mattes in combination to do my brows one day after I ran out of my beloved gimme brow. Blended together I find they create a shade perfect for doing my brows; it’s so easy to fill them now which shocked me as I’d always shied away from using a powder for this. (I was always too scared of going overly bold.) Using the palette for my brows though has saved me a little bit of money too since I haven’t gone out to get any new brow products which is brilliant!
Overall I am so glad I purchased this palette as it is such good quality and I find it’s perfect for almost any occasion. It was a little pricey, but as I use it nearly every day it is worth it for me; it’s worth comparing it to palettes you already have though as I know bronze shades aren’t uncommon. In the future I would happily look at more too faced products to buy for the quality as well as the dreamy packaging they come in.


I may even consider posting a look using the palette on here too just because I want to show you what looks you can create with some of the shades. What do you guys think?
