Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review and Favorite Looks

by - 9:40 AM

  Hi, Glamazons! I got the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette as a gift from my hubby and I've been using it for some time now. It's become one of my favorite palettes in my current collection and probably one of my most used as of late.

  I'm probably late in the Chocolate Bar craze but I can see why a lot of beauty gurus love this palette.  I've been avoiding pricey palettes ever since I started using Morphe but I kept coming across this beauty staple and I just had to give in. I mean, look at that packaging. Doesn't it look an actual chocolate bar? The packaging alone is enough to make you at least consider adding it to your stash of eye makeup artillery. 

Sturdy metal packaging gives it a premium and solid feel

Smells like chocolate and has a good mix of matte and shimmer shadows


New packaging is slimmer and names are written on the palette itself instead of a plastic sheet guide


  Apart from the beautiful packaging, what's inside is even more important. The eyeshadows do not disappoint. This is a neutral-toned palette that's going to look gorgeous on any skin color. You get a healthy mix of shimmers, mattes, and even a few shades with subtle glitter.

 Oh and did you know that the palette actually smells like chocolate? It's not an essential thing, but it's definitely something I like about it. It's not overpowering, just the right hint of cocoa vanilla scent when you open it. 

  Another thing I like about it is the fact that Too Faced listened to the reviews about the palette. Initially, the Chocolate Bar did not have the names of each shade marked on the palette but over a plastic sheet guide and many pointed this out as a problem. They changed it and the palettes being sold now have the names  labelled on the palette by their corresponding colors. I like it when companies listen to their customers. It shows that they care about what people want. The new packaging not only comes labelled but is slimmer than it's former design. 

 Each pan of color feels buttery on the skin and with the exception of candied violet, everything actually shows the same true to pan pigment on the lid. Candied violet looks purple in the pan but looks more silvery gray on the lids--- still  a pretty color but not purple at all. The Cherry Cordial may appear a little streaky or uneven but a little blending will definitely solve the problem. Color payoff is great. You don't need a lot to get the pigments to show up on your skin. Fallout is minimal, which has been a problem with my other palettes. 

  Earth-toned taupes dominate this palette which may seem boring and safe  at first glance but once you put in some effort, you can actually get sultry and smokey eye looks from this palette. I find that it's a good palette to use for my light motds where I just need a little definition and performs wonderfully when I need to go full glam. I can even just tweak a look a bit and I get a totally different look that gives me a day to night makeup transition.

Swatches 

  Below are some of the looks I've created using this palette. You can find the product details for each look on my Instagram Pam for the Glam if you're curious about the other makeup items I used for each of the MOTDs below.

  I reach for this palette quite often because of its versatility. It can give you a glamorous look or even a fresh and natural one depending on your mood. I like pairing it with nude brown lippies because I just find the combination so gorgeous and wearable for my daily look. I don't have to overthink my eye makeup with this palette because it's so straightforward and all the colors go together beautifully with each other. You can't go wrong with any three or four shades you may choose for an motd.

 Overall, I think this palette is worth the splurge. It feels light on the skin and gives me a lot of motd options to work with. 

  It's easy to see why a lot of beauty bloggers like this palette and I'm glad I have it in my collection. The quality, the colors, and packaging tell you that a lot of careful planning went into making this palette. You truly get what you pay for.

  If you're late in jumping on the band wagon, like me and are considering the Too Faced Chocolate as an addition or even a first palette, I hope you found this post helpful in your decision. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and may the glam be with you always!!! :)
