Whoever came up with the idea of Too Faced’s The Chocolate Bar palette is an utter genius.
Chocolate and eyeshadow are two of my favorite things, so the fact that they are combined is pure sensory goodness. Besides being housed in an adorable, sturdy container, the actual eyeshadows are amazing.
The Chocolate Bar palette contains 16 sweet matte and shimmery eyeshadows that are formulated with real cocoa powder. Cocoa is an important ingredient that provides antioxidant benefits and aids to reduce inflammation in skin. How sweet! The shadows also taste sweet, but don’t ask me how I know that.
What a gorgeous selection of colors!
It’s a great combination of neutrals, and if you’re looking for something different than Urban Decay’s Naked palettes, this would be a great alternative.
The shadows are all buttery smooth, including the mattes, which is not an easy feat to accomplish! I love the plastic overlay that shows the names of the different shadows.
One of my fondest childhood memories was watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in the second grade while boxes of chocolate were being unboxed for a fundraiser.
It was an incredible moment, only to be matched by the moment I opened Too Faced’s The Chocolate Bar palette.
My Final Thoughts: Smooth, buttery, and highly pigmented, the 16 shadows in Too Faced The Chocolate Bar palette are some of the cutest I’ve ever seen. The concept of this palette is fantastic, and it’s been executed flawlessly. I’m more excited about this palette than Urban Decay’s Naked 3 and I’m looking forward to creating lots of fun looks.
