Sweet or Sour? ❤ Too-faced semi-sweet chocolate bar palette review

(photo from here)
Buy here for US readers and here for UK readers.
I really do have an unhealthy addiction with palettes, eye-shadow palettes being one of my absolute favourites. However, I'm quite picky when it comes to eye-shadows and I consider myself somewhat an eye-shadow connoisseur. I love warm brown and neutral shades so when I saw Too Faced bring out the original Chocolate Bar palette I went absolutely gaga for it, buying it almost immediately. Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed with the bulky packaging and ended up just not reaching for it that much, so when Too Faced bought out the next edition I wasn't that excited.



However, I got this beauty for Christmas and I am obsessed. Like the first chocolate bar palette, this one also smells of the most heavenly chocolate and every time I open the lid I get slightly hungry.


So as already mentioned, this palette consists of mainly neutrals which would make natural-fans rejoice. There is a wide mix of sparkly shadows and matte shadows which is really useful in a palette so that you can create multiple looks. The shadows are highly pigmented and creamy - they blend out just beautifully. Another plus of the palette is the two larger pans of highlight shades. I don't know about you, but I always get through my highlight shades a lot quicker than the rest so this is really useful. My only complaint would be I wish they had put Peanut Butter in a larger pan because it is the perfect crease colour for me and I know I'm going to get through it so quickly, but I know Too Faced didn't make this palette solely for me so I can't complain too much!



Too Faced are also cruelty free and as I am an ethical vegetarian this is always something I look for in a company.

For £39 you recieve 16 gorgeous shadows which you could use to create almost any look, the blue in the palette is also one of the most beautiful shadows I have ever seen and can instantly dress up this palette and allow you to create a night appropriate look.

This palette would be perfect for everyone - from people who love minimal make up and to people who love a lot (like me!) so if you don't own it already I highly recommend you nip out now and buy one.

Excuse the low quality photo but I just quickly wanted to share a really simple eye look using the palette.
I had worn this look all day and the staying power  is phenomenal. To create this I just put on a quick wash of Nougat all over the lid, Peanut Butter through the crease, Truffled in the outter V and I highlighted with Butter Peacan.

What's your favourite palette?

  1. This is really a lovely look you created. I am not a big fan of palettes in general, I prefer to depot my single shadows and customize my own, but the smell of chocolate sure sounds tempting.

    1. Thank you! I used to be obsessed with the mac palettes that you could create yourself but then I realised what a rip off they were haha, I rarely depot singles but I think that's just because I'm too lazy!

    1. The fact that they're cruelty free and a lot of their products are vegan is such a selling point - plus their packaging is just adorable! Thank you!

    1. It is so worth the money, I didn't think I would love it as much as I do.
      They're the eylure 202 double lashes, one of their longest and dramatic lashes that they sell but I've now got into the habit of using them every day haha, oops!

  7. I have read such wonderful things about this palette! I love how it smells of chocolate, but I'd probably be tempted to try and eat it... :P <3 All the shades look absolutely gorgeous, and I adore the look you created!

    1. It does smell good enough to eat :) the shades are gorgeous, I thought I'd hate the blue but it's actually really wearable and nice. They are really warm browns which I love. Thanks!

    1. I've just seen your review of the bonbon palette and it's definitely made me want it. Wasn't sure about the pans being heart shaped at first, I thought it looked a bit childish but I've definitely came to love it!
