The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette was one of my Christmas presents and I was so excited to receive it! Not only does the outside of the palette look like a huge chocolate bar, but the eyeshadow shades inside are actually infused with cocoa powder, so the palette smells faintly sweet like chocolate. It’s honestly a lovely eyeshadow palette that was on my wish list because of the neutral shades it contains. I also like that it has both shimmer and matte finishes inside.

Cocoa is widely used in beauty products now for the antioxidants it has in it. It can also help to firm and tone the skin. The palette smells like chocolate, but it’s not so overwhelming that you won’t enjoy it. All the shades are super pigmented and rich in color, making this palette great quality. There are sixteen eyeshadow shades in the palette total.
The mix of shimmer and matte shades is fantastic, and I like that there are neutral browns and metallic shades along with plums. Let’s check out the gorgeous swatches!
Gilded Ganache, White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Black Forest Truffle, Triple Fudge: The top row of shades is a mix of shimmer and matte. White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Triple Fudge are gorgeous neutral matte shades that will work for a variety of looks. Gilded Ganache and Black Forest Truffle are even more beautiful in person, with really noticeable shimmer to them.
Salted Caramel, Marzipan, Semi-Sweet: The first three shades in the second row are all about the neutral browns. These are classic shades that will never go out of style.
Strawberry Bon Bon, Candied Violet, Amaretto: The last three shades in the second row are quite different from the rest. There’s a light pink shade that is matte, and then we have Candied Violet and Amaretto, which are stunningly intense in color and very shimmery.
Hazelnut, Creme Brulee, Haute Chocolate: The first three shades in the bottom row are probably my favorite of the bunch. They’re not super unique shades, but you just don’t get better quality shimmering browns than this. They are so pigmented and rich in color, even without any primer, and they will make the perfect neutral or dramatic smokey eye.
Cherry Cordial, Champagne Truffle: The last two shades in the bottom row of the palette consist of a dark, matte cherry brown shade and a shimmering champagne beige. Both are so smooth when you apply them, and Champagne Truffle is especially beautiful as a highlight color.
Overall, all of the shades in the palette are very rich and pigmented. Some of the shades are softer than others to the touch, namely the shimmers are softer whereas the mattes have a slightly firmer texture. There’s a great mix of matte and shimmer shades in the palette. Plus, every time you use this palette, you will smell the sweet scent of chocolate! I highly recommend this palette if you’re into neutral shades that can be dressed up or down.
