Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review
Today I will be reviewing the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This palette has been out for a while now. So I hope you guys enjoy this review and be sure to leave your comments and thoughts on this product or any other fun makeup things that you think I should try.
To begin the review I have to talk about the scent. This palette smells amazingggg! It smells just like chocolate. If you haven't smelled this palette, I urge you to visit your nearest Sephora or Ulta and take a whiff of this palette.
Although this might seem like a gimmick (which it totally is) it makes the palette a little more interesting.
So on to the most important part, the colors. This palette has 16 colors with two of those being a shimmery highlight and a matte highlight. One of my favorite things about this palette is that it has both a matte and shimmery highlight. This makes it so convenient for traveling because you have 2 highlights in one palette.
Another thing I really enjoy about this palette is that it has many different colors in it. It has the very classic light and dark browns, but it also has a very cool pink and warmer brown, a cooler sort of purple silver color, some very pretty champagne, gold and copper colors.
With all the different ranges of tones in these colors this palette can be very versatile and easy to use every day.
I love that this palette has basically every color that you could need to create any neutral eye look. The Chocolate Bar would be perfect to take on trips because all the colors you would need are in one palette.
Now on to the color payoff on these eyeshadows. I absolutely love the way that these colors apply to the skin. With or without a primer the colors are vibrant and very easy to blend, even the matte colors. The shadows are very smooth and silky. I love that I don't need to use a primer, even on the shimmery colors. There is a little fall out if you don't tap off your brush before you apply it, but it's not terrible.
The staying power is really nice as well. I usually have the eyeshadows on all day, and they don't seem to move. If you have greasier eyelids or need to make sure the colors don't move I would suggest to use a primer.
All in all this palette is a total winner in my book. I have been using it every single day from very simple easy looks to more sultry and smokey looks.
I give this palette a 9 out of 10. I give it a 9 and not a 10 because somehow this palette ended up breaking on me. I'm really not sure how that happened because it lives on my vanity table and doesn't move from that spot. But non the less, the lid has completely come off and I can't find a way to fix it other than some bright green washi tape.
I hope this review was helpful to you. If you guys have tried this palette or the newer Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette, be sure to leave your thoughts on these products. I would love to hear your opinions.
