Part of Too Faced Haute Chocolate spring 2014 collection, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow palette ($49) is outstanding! This chocolate scented (yep, it’s true) palette of delicious neutrals contains 16 matte and shimmery shades that make eyes glow and candy addictions grow! And no worries beauties, the chocolate scent is not at all overpowering. Make sure to check out more of the collection here. Tell your man you want a chocolate bar with no guilt!
The shades include:
- Gilded Ganache
- Salted Caramel
- White Chocolate
- Creme Brule
- Haute Chocolate
- Milk Chocolate
- Strawberry Bon Bon
- Cherry Cordial
- Black Forest Truffle
- Candied Violet
- Champagne Truffle
- Triple Fudge
Typical of Too Faced eye shadows, these have good pigment, are buttery smooth and blend easily. There are two larger shades: White Chocolate, a matte pale yellow beige and Champagne Truffle a slightly shimmery icy pink. I love these for highlighter shades or as transition or blending shades.
Some neutral palettes can venture into boring territory, but The Chocolate Bar also includes some stunning deeper jewel tones, like Black Forest Truffle, Candied Violet and Cherry Cordial. This also makes the palette more versatile and appropriate for all skin tones. The shimmer is fine for over 40 gals, it’s not too glittery or shiny.
I especially like Gilded Ganache, an olive green with gold sparkle, Marzipan, a pretty rose gold, and Hazelnut, a lovely bronze.
For this look I used White Chocolate on the brow bone, Creme Brule on the lid and Gilded Ganache in the crease and Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
For this smoky look I used Champagne Truffle on brow bone, Candied Violet on the lid and Black Forest Truffle in the crease, too faced black liner and Better Than Sex Mascara.
Bottom Line: Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow palette is a must have! The thoughtful mix of shades and finishes will appeal and flatter all skin tones. The shades are simply stunning, the quality excellent and of course the packaging charming! This going to be one of the best palettes of 2014, I can assure you. This is a sweet treat you need to indulge in and is PERFECT for Valentine’s Day! Now pass me the chocolate!!
