This palette has a row of satin and semi-matte eyeshadows, a row of shimmery eyeshadows, and a row of highlights. The texture of the powders are amazing. They are buttery and soft. They blend easily and don’t have a lot of fallout. This has been a great neutral palette for me. I sometimes want an all matte eye but, I think that makes me look a little heavy around the eyes. This palette has given me a versatile look. These are all neutral colors that work for everyday looks.
I am in my 30’s. Glittery eyeshadows are not and never have been my thing. I don’t want to look like a teenager playing with makeup. I have grown up quite a bit and my makeup style has to reflect that. This palette gives me what I need to create a modern, age friendly look on an everyday basis. I am constantly reaching for this palette. The highlights are a beautiful and dare I say creamy texture and aren’t to heavy for my deep caramel skin. Most highlighters tend to look ashy on African-American skin tones, especially deep skin tones. These apply great and wear great to all complexions. I love the way these feel. They are so smooth I have used them as eyeshadows too.
The construction and design of this palette is very clean. White cardboard with a big mirror and magnetic closure. This palette is great for travel. The slogan on the inside is a great one to live by. “Aspire to Inspire” That is a great quote.
This is the first time that I have ever purchased a YouTuber and brand collaborated product. I must say that I am not disappointed. This palette lived up to the hype and guess what? YouTube made me buy it.
I love this palette for several reasons. First, it’s way more compact than the original Chocolate bar which I bought before the palette was redesigned. The colors are much more rich and warmer in spite of the fact that a lot of people say the colors are cooler. They read much warmer on my skin tone which I like. The shadows aren’t powdery. This Chocolate Bar smells even more like Cocoa than the first.
Now let me clarify that this palette is cool toned. My skin tone is NC50 in MAC so these shadows are warm on me because of my skin tone not because the color is warm. As you can tell from the pictures, these shadows are cooler in tone than the original chocolate bar but I personally don’t find this palette to be a totally cool toned palette. I reach for this one every day no matter what eye look I’m doing.
Each color is unique and the names match perfectly. I couldn’t have thought of better names for these shadows. After you use each one you will understand why the name is so fitting. Here are a few of my favorites.
|A perfect satin brown taupe.- most of the glitter does not transfer on the eyes.|
|A rose gold shimmer- Great for highlighting the inner corner.|
|Warm matte light brown- Great transition and blending shade.|
|shimmery satin blackened plum- great alternative to black|
|Golden vanilla shimmer highlight. Can also be used as a facial highlight.|
|Frosted sheer bronze with gold reflect- warms up any shadow you put it on top of .|
|Pink frosted sheer shimmer- Transforms the look of a shadow when applied on top.|
I’ve enjoyed this palette to the fullest. I have created very dramatic to everyday looks with this palette. I expect no less from Too Faced cosmetics. They bring us great quality when there is a focused theme. They make sure the palette is totally in line with the theme all the way down to the packaging. They excite our senses in every way. The look of the Chocolate bar draws us in cause we all love chocolate but maybe can’t indulge in it as much as we would like but we can have this bar sitting on our vanity to remind us of our love. The smell when you open the palette immediately makes you nostalgic and you go to a happy place because the scent reminds you of a long lost love, cocoa. Not only are the shadows infused with cocoa powder, research shows that the scent of cocoa is connected with increased memory and brain power.
Too Faced has brought us some great product and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.
I was very excited to get my hands on this palette. This palette has been hyped up so much on YouTube and other social media that I had to get it. After doing my research first and making my mind up, I went to Ulta and picked it up. Needless to say, this was my best investment ever in an eye shadow palette. I have used it every single day. Whether it’s a bold smoky eye or a soft, neutral eye, this palette does it all. The Chocolate bar has given other palettes a run for their money. For what you get here you don’t need anything else.
Nothing has changed from my initial YouTube review. These shadows are creamy and Pigmented and I love the almost endless combinations. These shadows blend easily, last all day with or without a primer and on top of it all they smell like chocolate and have a beautiful package. I don’t have any complaints.
