Oh the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette*, an eyeshadow collection you've likely heard a ton of talk about since it's release a few years ago. You'll know I'm a massive fan of Too Faced products, and their Chocolate Bon-Bons palette holds a special place in my heart (or makeup collection shall I say - full review here). I'm a little late to the party with their original chocolatey themed offering, but I thought I'd see if it's really worth the hype it gets.
The palette contains sixteen chocolate scented eyeshadows which are all housed inside a milky brown 'chocolate bar' style packaging, even the back has very 'Wonka Golden Ticket' theme. Cute to say the least. All of the colours are candy inspired with a great selection of neutral shades, which are perfect for creating soft to smokey everyday looks. As much as I adore aall the shimmers and glitters, there's nothing worse than a palette with little to no matte shades, and this one certainly has a perfect mix of mattes and shimmers, so you can really create some lovely, versatile makeup looks with it.
Obviously I instantly gravitate towards Champagne Truffle, a beautiful pearly champagne pink with a slight golden undertone to it. It's definitely a me shade and looks stunning when applied to the lid with MAC Fix+. Salted Caramel is the most gorgeous warm, orangey brown shade, which is so perfect in the crease or as a transition shade and is actually a really complimentary colour. Marzipan is a beautiful frosted, pale peachy gold and is a dream when paired with Semi-Sweet a matte medium brown and Hazelnut a shimmery golden bronze. I really love the hues of Amaretto, Cherry Cordial and Black Forest Truffle which are perfect for creating those berry toned Autumnal looks.
The majority of the shades have great pigmentation and are super smooth and blendable. But you know I do always like to keep it real and so the shades that let the palette down for me are Strawberry Bon-Bon which lacks a little in pigmentation, Gilded Ganache as it applies a little chunky and patchy, and Triple Fudge which I don't feel is as good quality as the rest. I do think it's quite rare to find a palette with every single shade being exceptional though.
That being said, I think it's an amazing palette for creating everyday neutral looks and has a lovely shade selection. I'd personally choose this one over the Urban Decay Naked palette, so I'm gonna go with Y.E.S, it's definitely worth the hype and the splurge on it. Plus it smells like chocolate, what's not to love?
