Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Swatches | Is It Worth The Hype?

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? 

What are your thoughts on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette?

xoxo

  5. I got this palette from a friend for Christmas last year, and I was excited about receiving it as it'd been on my wishlist all year up until the point the brand got bought out by Estee Lauder. At first, I found that the pigmentation wasn't quite all there compared to the dupe from Makeup Revolution, their I Heart Chocolate Palette. However, once you start playing with a brush, it's comparable, if not slightly better, than the dupe. Some of the shades are different, but overall, I love both palettes :)

    I'd like to take this moment to say that I ADORE your style, it's so classy, girly and glamorous <3 I'm not a fan of pink, but I definitely appreciate how you work with it =D

    1. I've never tried anything from Makeup Revolution but tbh I really don't like how much their rip off all of their products from other brands! I don't know how they get away with it!
      Aww thank you so much! :-) xo

  10. To be brutally honest, I've never really been excited by this palette - I just wasn't very bowled over by the shade selection. That being said, these swatches are beautiful, and have left me quite tempted!

    Amaretto & Marzipan are my favourite shades that you have shown... This could work it's way into my collection yet!

    1. I think sometimes you don't realise how nice a product is until you see swatches! I was the same until I watched someone use it (a while ago) in a makeup tutorial and it looked beautiful, so I instantly decided I needed it! xo

  13. I own the semi-sweet version of this palette and I l o v e it! I've been eyeing up this original chocolate bar palette for so long and your swatches are really tempting me to go out and buy it! It's such a pretty palette and I love that both of the chocolate bar palettes smell like chocolate (I definitely think they smell like mini eggs haha!) xo

  14. This eye shadow palette looks so pretty, though the salted caramel palette appeals to me the most.

  15. This palette is way more versatile than I thought it would be.

    I only just bought my first Too Faced eye shadow palette, the Peach palette, but I don't like the way the mattes apply. Maybe it was just an off day, because I now feel like I want to try this.

    Salted Caramel and Cherry Cordial are exactly the sort of shades I would wear, but any palette that comes with a good base white shadow makes me instantly want it.
