Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and Graduation look

July 21, 2014

It’s about time I dedicate a post to this babe! I think palettes are so practical. I’m just going to put it out there. I’d rather buy a palette than buy separate eyeshadows. Single eyeshadows are .. well .. sort of useless. They use up so much space and they always end up forgotten. I tend to reach out more to palettes than single eyeshadows. Aaaanyway, when I first saw the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette I thought “Uhu, yup! I need that”. And guess what? A few days later I got it for my birthday. Yay!
Don’t get me wrong, single eyeshadows have the same quality in and out of a palette. But they somehow look more juicy appealing and attractive when combined with other shadows. AMIRIGHT? Whoever agrees please say I *all together* I. 

I’ve already tried Too Faced shadows with their Natural Eye palette. That’s actually a lie. My mom owns it and I’ve played around with it a few times and I wasn’t really impressed. However, after googling a few reviews, people really seem to enjoy the pigmentation and blendability (is that even a word?). Maybe mother dearest’s palette is old? Or maybe they reformulated their eyeshadows? I don’t know and I don’t care.

All I know is that the Chocolate Bar is beyond amazing. You NEED it. What’s not to love about it? The pigments are insane. The shadows blend like a dream. They are so creamy buttery and smooth. Zero fallouts. Let’s talk about that shade selection: err, just about every neutral girl’s dream! It’s the perfect mix of warms and pinky neutrals and of mattes and shimmers. And and and the actual palette is shaped like an actual chocolate bar. Plus the 16 eyeshadows are named after chocolate. So much goodness and amazingness that I just can’t! So I’m asking you again. What’s not to love about it?

I’m going to tell you what’s not to love about it. First is that awkward pink eyeshadow in the middle of the palette, the ugly duckling of the familia that has no place in my heart. And second is that hideous fake chocolate smell that never fails to be the source of a bad headache. Fortunately, that smell doesn’t transfer onto the skin. Those are my only two complaints. Sheesh, that’s not bad at all!

I used this palette for my graduation look and here are a few pictures of what it looked like. Never thought I’d post these pictures on the blog…

Ladies and gentlemen I am proud to announce that this has topped the Naked palette, for the moment. I mean I’ll always have a soft spot for the Naked palette but I’m sharing this spot with the Chocolate Bar. There is new star under the spotlights.

What do you guys think? Will you be purchasing it, if you haven’t already? Let me know!

    […] But talk about practical! Everything you need is in this hand-size palette. Yet to be fair, the Too Faced Chocolate palette was more the star of the show: it made an appearance the day of my graduation. The colors are […]
