Everybody loves chocolate and we all have favourite eyeshadow shades which we use over and over again. This one recently became my favourite.
I wanted a product well tested, which would allow me to create different makeup looks. The selection is pretty difficult nowadays. There are tens if not hundreds of great product on the market. I made a promise to myself not to spend money only on the products which I can be with almost 100% certainty, without a shadow of doubt in my makeup geek heart, that I am spending my money well. I can call myself now reasonable makeup fan 🙂
It goes without saying that when it comes to the eyeshadow palettes Too Faced is known to be the one delivering the best out there – quoting the makeup gurus.
The Chocolate Bar covers the whole range of shades, from subtle neutrals, pinks to warm dark browns. The organic cocoa powder not only gives it intoxicating smell but also works as a natural anti-oxidant.
The packaging seems to be a huge plus. At least it was for me. One of me eyeshadow palettes broke during my last plane trip. The third parties just do not know how to handle a bag filled with the beauty stash. Though life one might say. But let’s back to this beauty, shall we?
Sweet like chocolate
Chocolate Bar contains 16 beautiful shades: Glided Ganache, White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Black Forest Truffle, Triple Fudge, Marzipan, Semi-Sweet, Strawberry Bon Bon, Candied Violet, Amaretto, Hazelnut, Creme Brulee, Haute Chocolate, Cherry Cordial, Champagne Truffle
Shades diversity is its strong side
You can easily create the subtle daily look and eye-catching smokey eye. The shadows intensity works in your favour. When it comes to bendability, I have had some trouble with the Candied Violet, Semi-Sweet and Cherry Cordial, but the rest of the shades is soft as butter and glides on the eyelid smoothly. With my limited skills, I managed to do several beautiful looks with it. And it is fair to say, that I do sometimes struggle with makeup and beauty tools.
I am not sure what it is that love the most about this palette. Is it the wide range of colours, or the lovely chocolate smell, or the shades which are as intense as they are in the pan?
Probably all the above.
To buy or not to buy
If I can be honest, I was going through the internet like a maniac before this purchase. Trying to find the reason not to buy this palette. It is my first Too Faced product. Among the beauty bloggers, this is already a cult product. Our makeup collection is slowly expanding, but we do not want to spend money on something presented as an incredible and life changing when it is just a result of some nonsense hype. I am sure we all feel like this sometimes, don’t we?
Nevertheless, I am glad that I finally shared this review with you.
I do not know what it is that just makes me feel a bit disappointed with my recent makeup investments, mostly the foundation-wise. Maybe I will elaborate on it soon. Meanwhile huge thumbs up for the Chocolate Bar! Have a lovely day:*
