Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

That’s right, yet another neutral palette that’s captured my attention. This is one from the brand Too Faced, which I don’t think is one I’ve covered much on the blog at all. But considering this plus a rather amazing mascara from the brand that I’ll be talking about in the not too distant future… expect to hear more! This is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and is a metal palette filled with 16 eye shadow shades across the neutral spectrum. Plus a couple of not-strictly neutral curve balls in there for good measure too. But how does it stack up against the many other neutral offerings out there? Take a peek to see what you think…

So the palette is in metal casing, which feels nice and secure – if a little on the bulky side. The mirror on the inside of the lid could be a touch bigger in my opinion (you all know how I’m a fan of a big mirror in a palette). Then the shades are split into three rows, all in smaller sizes bar two lighter shades that offer highlight options – one matte pale (White Chocolate) shade that’s a great base and then the pinky shimmer that is (Champagne Truffle). Then there’s a mix of matte and shimmer shades, mostly all neutral offerings but also with the interesting duo chrome-ish Candied Violet to add a pop of colour and the matte pink Strawberry Bon Bon. The swatches below show each row in order and I’ve left the plastic sheet over the images above so you can reference shade names.

In terms of favourites… the bottom row is probably my top pick. But there’s something in all of them that I love. The rose-gold esque Marzipan is one of my favourite shades of the bunch and not one I have anything similar to. The shades are generally warmer toned, so this may or may not influence how much you like the palette overall based on your own colouring. In my opinion this is a lovely overall palette, maybe not absolutely vital to add if you’re all stocked up on nude shadows…but that hasn’t stopped me yet and I doubt it will for any of my other fellow nude shadow lovers out there either!

At £45 for the palette, it’s not a cheap one by any means. There is a big range of shades in there – plus each one is formulated with cocoa powder so actually smells of chocolate…
