Too Faced #Chocolatebarpalette Review

A friend of mine gifted me the “Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons “palette for my birthday back in November and I just recently opened it up.

Too Faced released this palette back in 2015 and since I never really got into their eyeshadows I didn’t have this in my collection. My lovely friend who is not a makeup connoisseur but enjoys these cheeky type products couldn’t believe I had never tried it so she made sure I had one to call my own.

The only Too Faced product I own is the” born this way” foundation and it was a good introduction to the brand. Even though this is not a new , just released palette we wanted to test it out on the blog and give is a fair review. 

The packaging is super cute and feminine! Pink all the way baby. The shadows are housed in heart shaped containers and smell devine! This palette is nicknamed #chocolatebarpalette for a good reason.

When I first opened up the packaging the cocoa powder fragrance is intense, but a sweet surprise. There are a total of 16 shadows , a mix of mattes and vibrant satin shimmers.

The matte shadows are soft, bendable, have good colour pigmentation and work even better if you use an eyeshadow primer underneath. A few matte shades were  powdery and blotchy upon first application, but get better once you add more product and blend out. Malted gave me the most trouble to apply but that’s expected with intense dark matte colours Molasses Chip had the most pigmentation of all the matte shades and applied quite easily with little fall out. Overall,  I really liked the matte shades and Almond Truffle is the perfect neutral all over colour for olive skin tone. It’s my new favourite for a quick, well refined look.

The satin shimmers are Totally Fetch, Cotton Candy,Black Current, and Café au Last. The first two, of course, being the most vibrant and in my opinion should be single shadows as they down fit into this mostly neutral palette. The shimmer shadows are OK. I experienced more fall out with these shades and they seemed more powdery then the mattes, which was really unexpected.

 Surprisingly, all the shades last a good 7 hours before I started to notice them sheering out on the lid. I don’t want to be repetitive but a good eyeshadow primer is necessary with this palette as I doubt they would have lasted without one. 

Overall, I am not mad at this palette, but doubt I will repurchase. I enjoyed the mattes more so than the shimmer shades. I LOVE Almond Truffle and would buy it a single shadow. My next favourite would be Black Current, for the Fall season would be lovely.

I doubt I will be hitting pan on this palette anytime soon, but would use it more often if they swapped out the vibrant shimmer shades and stuck to an all neutral palette with less powdery matte shades. Oh and ,of course, they MUST keep the cocoa fragrance  🙂 

Have you tried this palette before? What are your thoughts?

 

XO, MAHA

    I really wanted to get this palette but after reading some reviews online, I’m glad I didn’t! Not sure why I had high expectations of TF. The packaging is so cute though… Thanks for the heads up! Also, lovely product shots 🙂

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who keep unused beauty products for a long time. lol I’m surprised to hear the shimmer shades aren’t that great, usually it’s the matte colors that can be difficult to work with or they are less pigmented. Thanks for your honest review!

    It’s too bad the shimmers aren’t better. I’m definitely a matte person, but it wouldn’t be enough for me to want to buy the palette.
