Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette | Review and Swatches

For the last month or so I have really been enjoying doing my eye makeup and experimenting with a whole array of different shades. I've been using one eyeshadow palette more than most which comes in the form of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. It is one of two palettes that I have in my possession from Too Faced and I am so impressed. I am so glad the brand is more readily available to buy in the UK. 

The packaging of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is aesthetically pleasing. Seriously, a girl loves chocolate but a chocolate bar eyeshadow palette? Complete genius.

The palette is very sturdy with the tin packaging and has a magnetic closure which I find so satisfying. It also has a decent sized mirror within it too so it's brilliant for travelling with. You can simply apply your makeup from the palette without needing another mirror on your travels. 

It holds a great 16 shades of which are both matte and shimmer formulas although the majority are shimmers with very few matte shades which are perfect as a transition shade in the crease. Oh and did I mention they were all made from 100% natural cocoa powder? Oh yes, you really do get a good ol' whiff of the chocolatey goodness once you open this beauty up.

As you can see there is a fantastic variety of shades of which are mainly warm toned but work well for both night and daytime looks. All shades are easily blendable, soft and incredibly pigmented although the swatches do not do them much justice at all. God, it is so difficult to get good lighting since the seasons have changed.

 For a daytime look I've been using the shade White Chocolate as a base shade with Creme Brûlée on the outer of my lid with Marzipan in the inner part of my lid and Milk Chocolate in the crease. It looks so beautiful and it can be changed to a night look within seconds just by applying the shade Semi-Sweet through the outer v and crease. The shade Champagne Truffle has to be my favourite within the palette though. It's an incredible highlight shade, it really opens the eyes when used in the tear duct and emphasises the brow bone.

The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is the ultimate eyeshadow palette in my opinion(at the moment) and I will for sure be using it to death this A/W. 

You can purchase the Too Faced Palette via Debenhams here for £39. It may seem a little steep but definitely worth purchasing. 

Have you tried the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette?
