REVIEW : TOO FACED Chocolate bar eyeshadow palette

Happy Early Valentine's day, Beauties!

I finally!finally!!!got this palette in my hand! Been eye-ing for it since the first came out, but i could not find it at my local Sephora ( It only available online for a while!). But, finally they sold it at the store a well, and just now, i finally got this babe! This is actually my early Valentine's day gift from my hubby *winkwink..

So, here is the mini review of this cute palette!

Where to buy : 


Price :

US$ 49
( +Tax - may variable )



Quote from the Too Faced Website about this product : 
Too Faced Co-Founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino was inspired to combine the power of antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and makeup while having a chocolate facial and learning about the benefits of cocoa at a Hawaiian spa. Based on this inspiration we created our best-selling bronzer Chocolate Soleil and then Milk Chocolate Soleil and have now added the Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette.

Small HOW TO guide brochure

THE PALETTE : 


- Chocolate bar look - alike made from light-weight tin container
- A little bit bulky compare to  NAKED palette ( picture below )
- On the back of the palette there is a description about the palette, the contains, production, etc

Size Comparison to NAKED 3 Palette 



-  The palette has a medium sized mirror ( not a full sized ) 
- It contains 16 eyeshadows, some matte, some shimmers, silky/velvety feels or even baked eyeshadows texture.
- Color collections mostly brown, chocolate, gold tones, bronze or dark. Some are similar but the textures are different...
- No brush included
- Smells like a chocolate!




SWATCHES


- Some colors are  a little bit chalky ( matte ones ) NOT all of them.. but not too bad, i bet with eyeshadow primer, it should be ok!

- Pretty colors as a highlighter ( White Chocolate ( matte )  and champagne Truffle ( shimmer ) ) available in larger size than the other eyeshadows. I had a little problem with White Chocolate, it seems like a little bit chalky when i created a slight stroke on my hand for the swatch. Primer would be help!

- PIGMENTED..super..especially those with shimmer that look like almost baked eyeshadows..such as Haute Chocolate, Hazelnut, Amaretto, Triple fudge ( i think most of deep bronze/brown or gold tones color ) .

- I also had a problem swatch-ing Candied Violet ( deep violet with shimmer ). One slight touch with finger picks the amount of product but when swatch it on the skin, it a little bit off..expect a little bit fall outs... ( see the picture below)



- Strawberry bon-bon ( Strawberry milk color ) is the cutest pink color on this palette. Pigmented, build-able, even though could be chalky before you smudge it..

- Take a look Candied Violet when i pick it with finger, but when i smudge it, it only left a small amount of color.

- But overall, i love this palette, the color collections are gorgeous and yet it still the natural collections. Pigmented and some colors have a gorgeous shimmery look which i love!Once again, with the eyeshadow primer, it would be a perfect palette. 



Hope this is helpful!
