Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette

Hello my lovelies! Over the past few days there's been a bit of a lull on the blog, primarily due to the fact that I flew back to England in preparation for my second semester of university. After spending what seemed like an eternity in bed after my surgery, it feels rather pleasant possessing a purpose again! Naturally, I felt that such a feat should be duly rewarded with a spot of shopping and that's when I got my grubby little mitts on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette. Deliciously packaged and feeling like I've won Willy Wonka's golden ticket, the eye shadows are made of 100% natural cocoa powder, deeming them worthy of vegan approval.

Shaped like an actual bar of chocolate, the palette presents a magnetic clasp making opening and closing effortless. Upon opening, you're greeted with the sweetest aroma imaginable, making it very difficult not to lick the palettes contents. The eye shadows are charmingly christened after various chocolate themes leaving my mouth watering, anything from "White Chocolate" to "Crème Brûlée" enticing you to smear them on your lips as well as your eyes. The colours appear very versatile, ranging from neutral nudes to pops of purples and pinks, rendering the colour combinations endless.

Top Row L-R: Gilded Ganache, White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Black Forest Truffle, Triple Fudge, Salted Caramel, Marzipan, Semi-Sweet

Bottom Row L-R: Strawberry Bon Bon, Candid Violet, Amaretto, Hazelnut, Crème Brûlée, Haute Chocolate, Cherry Cordial, Champagne Truffle

After swatching the shadows, I find that they offer a gently pigmented consistency without appearing too bold and overbearing. After a days trial run wearing the eye shadow, their longevity is impressive, with no smudging or fading in sight - after a gruelling 6 hours in uni, I come home to find that the eye shadow has not budged an inch and is still as bright as when I first applied it that morning. After exhausting my Naked 2 palette for over a year, I feel well and truly converted to the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, making it my new go-to eye shadow source!

  1. I love this palette, it is one of my favorite palettes <3 Not only the colors are very pigmented, but these eyeshadows literally smell like chocolate and I am obsessed with chocolate haha
    Great review, love :)


  2. Ooooooooo this looks lovely!

    P.s. I'm holding an Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics giveaway on my blog :)

  3. Wow! That packaging is truly scrumptious to look at, I agree aha :) and I've always thought that Too Faced as a brand isn't overtly expensive as well!

    Love A x

  4. Ooh lovely, think I'd be tempted to take a bite out of it!

  5. I got this at Christmas and have fallen completely in love with it! As you said, the shadows all wear so well and the packaging is amazing. It's quickly become one of my favourite palettes, and I only regret not getting it sooner now! :)

  8. This has made me both want to buy the palette and eat a lot of chocolate... I absolutely love brown/natural eyeshadow, and this palette is such a cute idea!

    Plus one of the swatches is called Hazelnut so you know...kinda have to buy it now ;)

    I'm glad you're back!! I hope the recovery is going well :)

  9. Ahhh those shades look so nice <3 I think those shade names would send me over the edge though, coupled with the chocolate smell I'd be trying to eat the palette!

  10. This palette looks so gorgeous, but so does the new semi-sweet chocolate palette released by Too Faced. Everyone says how great the pigmentation is so I'd love to hopefully try it sometime soon. This was such a lovely read, thank you for sharing!
