The Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette is a makeup lovers dream. As soon as you open the palette, the smell of sweet chocolate envelops you and the sights of the shadows immediately spark imagination and creativity! I new I had to get my hands on this beaut and I was so excited when it finally made its way into my collection!!
The eye shadows are pigmented with pure, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder, most of the shadows have a smooth texture (some of the shimmer shades have a slight chunky glitter) and blend beautifully. The palette includes 16 matte and shimmer shades of natural browns, soft pinks and pops of plums and burgundy’s. So whether you are into soft neutral looks, sultry smokey looks or something with a pop of colour your are covered. In saying that the colours are completely neutral so don’t expect chartreuse or blues. This palette was designed superbly and suits all skin tones and abilities, so as you inhale the sweet chocolate sent just the let the colours absorb you and get creating.
The palette includes Too Faced‘ signature how-to Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started, all of which are easy to recreate and help you start to pair up the shadows with ease. Another very smart aspect of the palette design is the fact that the highlight shades are the size of two regular pans. One shade is matte and one is has a subtle pink undertone and shimmer, bother make perfect inner corner and brow highlights, as well as a quick and easy wash of colour over the lid for a simple day look. If you haven’t already, go and get your hands on this palette, it will be perfect for all seasons and provide so many fun options.
The left grid allows you to create warm, rich neutral eyes. With a good selection of pigmented mattes, including a great highlight (also good for softening edges while blending) and blend-able shimmers you are set to create a subtle day time look with a hint of olive or dark sexy smokey eyes. Any look is able to be vamped up or toned down depending on your mood!
The right grid provides you with a fantastic combination of colours that can enhance any look using the left grid, or can also create a beautiful eye on its own. Whether your looking to amp your neutral eye or really get creative with the lilac/violet undertones of Candied violet you are set! The delicate soft hues of the highlight shade paired with Cherry Cordial allow you to mimic the popular rosey tones at the moment and blended out with Salted caramel create a decadent look, just coat your eyes with your fav mascara and your good to go ( a personal favourite look of mine)!
I LOVE this palette, there are endless looks and this is the perfect palette for travelling!
