Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and have had a great weekend! I've spend most of my week cramming for my final Uni exams which start next week eek! But like any student, I've found plenty of ways to procrastinate, one of them being spending time playing with my beautiful new eyeshadow palette - the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. Seriously, no amount of heart eyed emojis could describe the beauty of this palette. 

I've had my eye on this palette for quite some time now, and after receiving 3 of the shades in the Too Faced 'Beauty Wishes & Sweet Kisses' palette which my parents bought me back from Canada, I knew it would only be a matter of time before this was on its way to me. Just a little side note here, I purchased this from Debenhams which seems to be the cheapest place around to get this palette at the moment as I only paid £39 compared to the £45 everywhere else is charging for the palette. 

First off, lets talk about the packaging. I love Too Faced not only for their high quality products but also because everything they sell is beautifully packaged and sweet as hell, and this palette is no different. The palette comes in a box designed to look like a chocolate bar wrapper and then the actual palette is designed to look like a bar of chocolate which is just adorable - they seem to have thought of everything when it comes to this palette! The actual palette itself comes in a metal tin with a magnetic clasp, which I prefer as I feel like the product inside is protected so much more than if it had been a cardboard palette, especially when your travelling. 

The palette contains 16 anti-oxidant rich cocoa infused matte and shimmer shadows, all in beautiful chocolate-y colours. They're also all named after chocolate related things and smell like chocolate which I think it just too cute. The two shades meant for highlighting - white chocolate and champagne truffle - are also larger than the other colours which I think is a good idea as these shades always seem to run out before the others. 

The thing I really love about this palette, and where most of your money goes, is the brilliant formula of the shadows. You really get what your paying for here, each shadow is equally pigmented and buttery smooth meaning that they're super easy to blend. The mattes aren't chalky and the shimmers aren't gritty so you can really tell that these are high quality eyeshadows. I also love the range of colours which Too Faced have chosen to include in this palette. Often with neutral palettes, you end up paying £40 or more for a vast array of brown shades, which is great don't get me wrong, but I feel that with this palette, you just get that little extra. 

The palette has matte browns, shimmery browns, golden browns, greeny browns, purple shades, pink shades and some copper shades on top of the two highlighters it offers which I think makes this palette really versatile. The palette does come with a little 'Glamour Guide' which tells you how to create 3 different looks with the palette, but I think that the range of colours really opens itself up to creating hundreds of looks, perfect for any time of the year. 

Overall, I love this palette (if you can't already tell!) and I know this has been a super long post, so if you made it to the end - props to you! If you love your neutral palettes or if you're looking for a neutral palette with a twist, then I urge you to try this. Too Faced have also just launched the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette too which, like this palette, comes with a heap of neutrals and a few other shades thrown in for good measure, so if purple isn't your thing, then I'd definitely recommend taking a look at that one!

Lots of Love,

Becky x x

  23. Well said, my dear! I think this palette is well worth every penny and I use it soooo much more than my Naked palettes.

    Let's be real, the chocolate scent doesn't hurt either. ;)
