This is my favorite palette (and believe me, I have lots, including Naked2 and Naked3)! It has everything you could need. The packaging is adorable and effective (since Christine reviewed this they slimmed the packaging down, it’s now thinner than a Naked palette, this is the edition I have) but the magnet could be a bit stronger. That being said, I haven’t had any issues traveling with it. Candied Violet isn’t great, it’s sheer and fades if you’re not careful, but I still use it because it is quite pretty when layered and cools a look down. I love that this comes with 5 mattes or near mattes so you always have options for your crease. There are enough light highlight shades and enough shades to darken the outer corner with. Due to the warm brown nature of this palette, I have never found myself wishing there was a true black in here so the dark brown Triple Fudge does so much for me. Surprisingly, the shades I use the least in this palette are the medium brown shimmers, but having them there is great as they are perfect for doing gradients. The one I touch least hands down is Strawberry Bon Bon. It softens the lid and gives a hint of pink but it’s barely noticeable and quite sheer. Overall, though, this palette just has an amazing amount of options for every part of your eye look. I love using Champagne Truffle as a cheekbone highlight sometimes, too. And, it smells incredible! Never fails to brighten my mornings
Absolutely adore this palette especially since it’s my first TooFace purchase & the smell of it is delicious! I forget that it smells like Cocoa until I open it & begun my brush application.
The shades can be sheer at first but it’s buildable.
The packaging is a tad bulky so not ideal for storing among other palettes in a drawer, it is however sturdy & none of my shadows shattered yet. So that’s a major plus.
I do however recommend you to swatch if possible if you’re utterly lost & confused on whether you need this palette or not. I spent a good amount of time debating on this & the Naked 3 palette before settling for this as I could see myself using Tooface on a daily basis which is true.
I love the colours that have been put into this palette – a very wide range of neutrals from light to dark, from cool to neutral to warm, from matte to pearl/frost. I love the hit of colour provided by Candied Violet. I do have 2 complalints, though. First, the names of colours aren’t printed on the palette (as they are in the Naked palettes, for example) or even on the bottom of the palette because who can keep hold of those flimsy cellophane things, let alone refer back to them as you’re doing your eyes? And secondly, why the heck would they put a chocolate scent in eye shadows? I realize it is in keeping with the theme but these are eye products! We don’t need them with fragrance!
Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.62 oz.) contains sixteen eyeshadows from pale beige to deep bronze, from matte to frost. The smaller eyeshadows are 0.03 oz. each, while the two larger ones are 0.10 oz. each. This palette will launch exclusively at Sephora on December 19th (though it is listed online now, but it is not in stock, and it was previously available for sale–I believe my mistake a couple of weeks ago). As far as I can tell, it’s permanent. The entire palette smells like sweet cocoa when you open it. The quality varies from shade to shade, with some being beautifully rich in pigment and soft, buttery, and dense in texture, and then there are a couple of misses that are rather powdery, sheer, or a combination of the two. Overall, the palette is more of an adventure in darker, smokier neutrals with a couple of curve balls (pale pink, deep purple), so depending on your stash of neutral palettes, this may be superfluous. Most of the eyeshadows wore well for around eight hours, with some of the powdery ones fading sooner.
