Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review and Swatches

You may have heard about the new Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette from Too Faced, though in my opinion this palette hasn’t gotten enough hype. Because, it. is. amazing.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review

Oh, so true. Whenever I open this palette, I get a huge whiff of chocolate (note, I think mine might be a bit stronger smelling than others, my friend Kelly says that she can’t smell it much, her Chocolate Bar Review just went up today as well). It’s worth buying this palette just to get the smell of the chocolate every morning!

The reason it smells so amazing? There’s chocolate in the shadows. It turns out there are a lot of skin care benefits with cocoa powder (check out my post explaining how cocoa powder helps your skin), and Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino was inspired to add cocoa powder to makeup while having a chocolate facial and learning about the benefits of cocoa at a Hawaiian spa. Now, you’ll find Cocoa Powder in Too Faced’s Chocolate Soliel Bronzers (my favorite is their Milk Chocolate Soliel Bronzer) and the Chocolate Bar Palette.

While I do have quite a few neutral palettes, I think that this palette is my favorite for its versatility. There are a lot of colors that work well together, but they aren’t all in the exact same family. So, with the same palette it is easier to create a lot of different looks. I recently took it on a trip (yes, only 3 days), and I swear I’m a freak that usually needs a shadow palette per day while out of town. I don’t do well without a lot of options. For this trip I brought only the Chocolate Bar, and there were enough options to keep even me happy, so you know there must be a lot of options!

10. Strawberry Bon Bon
11. Cherry Cordial
12. Black Forest Truffle
13. Candied Violet
14. Champagne Truffle
15. Triple Fudge
16. Amaretto

Like all Too Faced Shadow Palettes, these shadows are well pigmented and apply really easily. They aren’t super powdery, they blend great and last me all day without fading, creasing or other issues. (Note, I always use a shadow primer, my favorite is Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance.)

My favorite looks so far with this palette are:
1. Marzipan over the inner half of my mobile lid, Creme Brule over the outer half of the lid. Hazelnut in my crease and outer V, then Brown Too Faced Perfect Eye Eyeliner smudged into my lashes with a little Gilded Ganache over the liner. Finish with a ton of Better than Sex mascara!

2. Champagne Truffle over my entire mobile lid, Milk Chocolate in the crease, Black Too Faced Perfect Eye Eyeliner smudged into my lashes with a little Black Forest Truffle smudged into the liner. Again, finish with a ton of Better than Sex mascara!

Which shadows would you pair together? Have you tried this palette yet?

    Thanks for sharing this review. Who wouldn't love the scent of chocolate to swirl around in your head while creating your morning masterpiece? I have not tried this palette yet, so I am hoping that you pick me entry. P.S. I would use Champagne Truffle all over the lid from lash line up to the brow bone. Cherry Cordial would come next on the lid itself. Followed by Black Truffle on the outer corners of the eyes. Don't forget about the crease area, that is where Candied Violet should be placed. Use the Amaretto on the inner corner of the eyes and your makeup is set for the day.

    They actually have Cocoa Powder in the formulation, but it definitely smells like chocolate to me!

    I love the color swatches but I'm allergic to chocolate so I don't think I can use it. =( Dupes anyone?
