Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageIMG_2012

When I spotted the Too Faced ‘Chocolate Bar’ palette in Sephora I couldn’t resist it. Makeup which looks like a delicious chocolate bar was going to win me over every time. Since I’ve had the palette I’ve also come to realise the eyeshadows smell and actually taste like chocolate. I know you’re probably thinking that I’m pretty strange to know it actually tastes like chocolate but I was being lazy and couldn’t be bothered to spray my brush with MAC’s Studio Fix + spray to add more pigmentation to a metallic shade so I kinda licked the brush – ha ha! Tasty! Anyway, the reason the eyeshadows smell like a yummy treat is because they’re infused with antioxidant rich cocoa powder which is great for the skin. Inside the tin palette you will find a mirror along with sixteen eyeshadows in both matte and shimmery finishes. There are two highlight shades which are larger than all the other shades. The creamy matte highlight shade is probably my least favourite in the palette as it is slightly chalky. However, it still does the job and I’m wearing it as my brow bone highlight in the above photo. The rest of the shades, especially the matte shades, are buttery soft in texture and sweep onto the eyelid effortlessly making it easy to blend. My swatches don’t seem to do the palette justice as the pigmentation seems to be a lot better when applied to the lid than what my swatches seem to suggest. All of the shades in the palette won’t go unused as they’re all fairly neutral. I’m also loving the fact that there is also a purply shade to mix things up a bit. All in all I’m so pleased I was tempted by this palette because the eyeshadows are easy to work with, there’s a gorgeous range of colours and they’re long lasting.

Treat yourself to the only chocolate bar you won’t regret or feel guilty buying here.

    I had their bronzer once and constantly just opened it to smell it! Bad habit! You look stunning – I really wish I was remotely good at smokey eyes!

      It is fab! I’ve been using everyday! I’m wearing Snob by MAC with Pink Tiara Whitening Lightning lipgloss (you can 25% off this lipgloss with the code JBLIFE) to be honest this lipgloss is super pigmented I didn’t really need the lipstick xx

        Oh the lipgloss sounds fab I think I will have to purchase it, thanks for the code. I have MAC Snob too but it looks much nicer on you 🙂 xx
