The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette is the secondpalette that was released in the line. It contains 16 shades in both matte, satin and shimmery finishes and looks A LOTlike the above Chocolate Bar Palette, but does have some differentshades.

Chocolate Bon Bons Palette (Volume 3)

TheChocolate Bon Bon Palette is the thirdpalette that was released in the line. It contains 16 shades in matte, satin and shimmery finishes. The Bon Bons Paletteis different than the two first palettes in that it has love heart shaped pans, and is pink, not brown. The material type is the same as the above palettes, it’s just a different color.

Sweet Peach Palette (Volume 4)

The Sweet Peach Palette is the fourth and latest palette released in the line. While it isn’t a chocolate bar palette, it has the exact same layout so I thought I would include it. TheSweet Peach Palettecontains 18 shades in Matte, Satin and Shimmery finishes. It has the same type of packaging as the rest of the palettes, but is orange (of course!).

Overall Thoughts/Conclusion

I am going to quickly talk aboutthe formula of the Too Faced Palettes. The palettes with this theme and layoutall have slightly different, but EXTREMELY similar formula’s and all work the same way. The slight chemical differences are so minor that you literally can’t physically notice ANY difference between the shades in ALL of the palettes when applying them. If you asked someone who hasn’t studied the ingredient list’s, they would for sure say they had the same formula. I like how Too Faced has this consistent formula because you know that you’re going to get good product.

In regards to what the formula is like, it is high quality. The shadows are pigmented – both the mattes and the shimmers- and apply and workon the eye amazingly. I don’t have anything bad to sayabout the formula, it is really good.

All of the palettes are infused with Cocoa Extract- except the Peach palette which is instead infused with Peach Extract-so they do have an artificial scent to them. This is pleasent to mebut may be over-bearing for someone who doesn’t like strong scents.

Overall, I do like the Too Faced Palettes, but they are a bit repetitive in terms of the shades you get in the palette’s. There are ALWAYS so many browns in every palette and I find it annoying AND repetitive. I know it is the ‘Chocolate’ theme they are following, but just because you have a theme doesn’t mean you should put so many unnecessaryshades in every palette you release.

Do you need all of these palettes?? Unless you’re a makeup collection, NOT AT ALL. Specifically, if you like the first two palettes – The Chocolate Bar and The Semi-Sweet Chocolate BarPalette – pick one you like more and skip the other, because they are just wayyyyy too alike for you to need both (unless you want them of course). The third palette – Chocolate Bon Bon Palette-  is more different than the first two palettes (even though it does still have some similar shades to them) and the Sweet Peach Palette is also very different, so you would get value out of buying both but again, make sure you analyse the shades and see if you really need them a million times.

Sooooo What is My Favorite Too Faced Palette???

I really like the Chocolate Bon Bon Palette. The Chocolate Bon Bon Palette has such beautiful packaging and I could NOT say no to the pink theme. It also contains soo many pretty shades that appeal to me and my tastes.

I also like the Sweet Peach Palette. The Sweet Peach Palette is unique in a way and contains a varietyof beautiful shades. There are still a lot of similarities between the shade scheme and the other palette’s, but it is different enough from the rest to make me like it..

Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette Review, Photos, Swatches


Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette

Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.62 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows from pale beige to deep bronze, from matte to frost. The smaller eyeshadows are 0.03 oz. each, while the two larger ones are 0.10 oz. each. This palette will launch exclusively at Sephora on December 19th (though it is listed online now, but it is not in stock, and it was previously available for sale–I believe my mistake a couple of weeks ago). As far as I can tell, it’s permanent.  The entire palette smells like sweet cocoa when you open it. The quality varies from shade to shade, with some being beautifully rich in pigment and soft, buttery, and dense in texture, and then there are a couple of misses that are rather powdery, sheer, or a combination of the two. Overall, the palette is more of an adventure in darker, smokier neutrals with a couple of curve balls (pale pink, deep purple), so depending on your stash of neutral palettes, this may be superfluous.  Most of the eyeshadows wore well for around eight hours, with some of the powdery ones fading sooner.

One thing I wish Too Faced would change about how they do their palettes is either include truly, all-brand-new shades or not be afraid to include a shade from a previous release. I’d rather know it’s the same (or have it just be the same) than a 1/4 of a shade different with a new name. When you release large eyeshadow palettes frequently, I know you’re going to have a repeat; that’s okay! just tell us about it! We don’t want to see the same five shades regularly repeated, but it’s not a deal-breaker if a couple make a reappearance.

Gilded Ganache is a dark chocolate brown with warm, caramel undertones and a yellowed bronze shimmer. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft without being powdery. I had minor fall out when I wore this shade. Makeup Geek Utopia (P, $6.99) is more glittery. Too Faced Yule Log (LE) is very similar. MAC Brownluxe #4 (P) is more muted. Urban Decay Snakebite (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Chanel Topkapi #1 (LE) is not quite as warm-toned. See comparison swatches

White Chocolate is a warm-toned, pale beige with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, and the texture was soft, blendable, but not powdery. There are so, so many shades just like this, including many by Too Faced as they’ve released their palettes. See comparison swatches.

Milk Chocolate is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned brown with reddish-yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had nice pigmentation, applied smoothly, and was easy to blend out on the lid. Makeup Geek Frappe (P, $5.99) is warmer. Chanel Charming #2 (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. Too Faced Chocolate Milk (LE) is a touch lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild To Muse and Carouse #2 (LE) Urban Decay Beware (LE, $18.00) theBalm Allegro (P, $16.00) MAC Moleskin (LE, $15.00) Inglot #357 (P, $6.00) See comparison swatches.

Disney by Sephora Chateau (LE) is browner. theBalm Alice Copper (P, $16.00) is cooler-toned, brighter. Urban Decay Roach (P, $18.00) is very similar.

Triple Fudge is a deep, dark brown with subtle neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff that’s more buildable when applied to the lid than it seems to appear initially. Laura Mercier Espresso (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. bareMinerals Boardroom (LE) is also a bit cooler-toned. Inglot #326 (P, $6.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Marzipan is a warm, peachy-orange with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and fairly smooth. As a FYI, Too Faced included a shade called “Marzipan” in their Bon Bons palette, but this isn’t the same–the previously-released Marzipan was matte. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE) is slightly lighter. Makeup Geek Cinderella (P, $5.99) is less frosted. MAC All That Glitters (P, $15.00) is more golden. See comparison swatches.

Candied Violet is a smuted, smoky violet with cool undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It was very dry and stiff to work with, and the color payoff was sheer. It didn’t work better on the lid either–harder to blend and not buildable at all. Too Faced Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #6 (LE) is brighter. Sleek MakeUP Romance in Rome (LE, $9.99) is cooler-toned. Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $18.00) is also cooler-toned. theBalm Lavish Latoya (LE, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Half Truth (LE, $18.00) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.
