Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

When the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette was released a couple of months ago, I was extremely anxious to get my hands on it... I mean look at it! Gorgeous chocolate themed tin packaging, beautiful neutrals, and eyeshadows that smell exactly like chocolate... it's right up my alley! However, I couldn't justify buying another palette, so I avoided Sephora and blog posts that reviewed it.

The other week, my husband and I decided to go to the mall to purchase a Pandora bracelet for our sister. Little did I know he planned to take me to Sephora to get me the two palettes I've been lemming: this lovely palette and the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. The man is such a sweetheart!

This palette contains 16 eyeshadows ranging from matte to frosty finishes. The names of these shades are as delicious as they smell!


Onto the swatches:
- Gilded Ganache is a dark brown with gold shimmer.
- White Chocolate is a matte pale beige.
- Milk Chocolate is a matte medium warm brown.
- Black Forest Truffle is a dark burgundy with gold sparkle.
- Triple Fudge is a matte dark chocolate brown.

- Salted Caramel is a matte orangey brown.
- Marizpan is a shimmery peachy-orange.
- Semi-sweet is a matte medium brown with a slight red undertone.
- Strawberry Bon Bon is a cool-toned baby pink.
- Candied Violet is a deep purple with violet shimmer.
- Amaretto is a copper.

- Hazelnut is a medium dark brown with gold shimmer.
- Creme Brûlée is a metallic gold.
- Haute Chocolate is a dark brown with a frosty finish.
- Cherry Cordial is a plummy brown with sparkle.
- Champagne Truffle is a bright pinky-beige with sparkle.

I absolutely adore this palette! The shadows are super soft, easy to wear, and easy to blend. There are a variety of shades available to do everyday neutral looks or even fun shades (like candid violet) to mix things up once in a while. All the shades compliment each other very well, so you'd never have to second guess yourself (as long as you mix your finishes). I highly recommend it!

Do you own the Chocolate Bar palette? What do you think of it? And those who don't own it, do you plan to purchase it?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I'm so jealous. I've been admiring this palette for a while.

    The only thing that stopped me from getting it was all of the brown shades. I think I would have preferred some more lighter ones. But I love the Too Faced chocolate smell.

  9. Oooh what a fun palate! I think I'd be willing to buy this for the packaging alone.
