White Chocolate Bar

Too Faced White Chocolate Chocolate Bar Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that is available for Rouge/VIB members from 11/21 to 11/22 and then releases for everyone on at 11/23. It’s one of Too Faced’s worst palettes, and it’s still a mediocre, not-worth-$5 palette used over their own primer. The formula used in this palette is so dry that shades are often dusty, chalky, or powdery (or some mix) with many shades applying with little pigmentation, sheering out as soon as they’re touched, and have little wear time (even over primer!).

This palette was a head-scratcher: I have no idea why Too Faced would release this palette when their White Chocolate Chip Palette from last year was one of the brand’s worst palettes… ever (my review here). Even retailer reviews on it were pitiful, 37% of Sephora reviewers rated it 1-star with 64% rating it 3-stars or below; and it’s rare to see such low average ratings (2.7/5 for last year’s White Chocolate Chip) on any products on Sephora–the infamous Anastasia Subculture is rated 3.7/5.

The palette shares the bulk of its shades with last year’s palette, and there was little to no room for improvement from palette to palette, so this seemed like it was just a waste of time and money for all involved. It’s actually more frustrating to see a brand completely disregard customer feedback. It makes me feel like the brand doesn’t care, takes no pride in their products, and has no desire to improve their products.

Semi Precious

Colour Pop Semi Precious 8-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.56 oz.) contains eight, metallic eyeshadows housed in a cardboard palette. They’re larger than the typical ColourPop eyeshadow, and they felt slightly creamier and smoother with moderate density but were never heavy or too thick. Only one of the eight shades could have been better, but even that, it was still a good eyeshadow. As long as you’re someone who adores shimmers or doesn’t mind pulling in other finishes to complement this palette, it’s well worth considering.

Warm Browns

Huda Beauty Warm Browns Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) is–shockingly–a warm-toned neutral palette with eight matte shades and one shimmery shade. The eyeshadows were quite good, and my only “con” was that I felt the denser consistency of the lone shimmery shade didn’t work quite as well with all the mattes (not uncommon) and the darkest matte could have been more pigmented (but it was buildable and worked better in practice than swatched).

Smokey

Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette ($27.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes nine shades of neutral, mostly warm-toned eyeshadows with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. The majority of the shades were quite good, and I found the palette easy to use. The eyeshadows were semi-opaque to opaque, blendable, and long-wearing overall. It also leaned less warm-toned than most palettes these days, so that was nice to see, too!

Beauty Rust

Coloured Raine Beauty Rust Mini Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette filled with warm neutrals. There are five matte eyeshadows and one sparkling one. I saved this one for last, as I expected it to be the most foolproof, but it was a struggle, even over primer. On its own, there were issues with colors dusting off the lid and lifting away, and over primer, the powders seeped into my skin and looked dotted, patchy–like my pores were eating the eyeshadows and darkening, which resulted in a nice, polka dotted effect that was zero percent flattering.

Golden State of Mind

Colour Pop Golden State of Mind 15-Pan Shadow Palette ($26.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that features 15 shimmery eyeshadows. The brand described the formula as “super-pigmented” that have “one-stroke metallic intensity.” They advise using “flat and firmer brushes” for “the most color payoff.” Some shades are more glittery/sparkly with a looser press whereas others felt denser, creamier, and were more metallic. The latter applied better without any tricks, but the more sparkly shades applied better with a dampened flat brush. I found they wore pretty well on their own (without an adhesive base or primer), though. This palette will be most suitable for someone who enjoys pairing palettes together, as there are no mattes here and not much variety in finish. I think some of the light and mid-tone shades are a bit too similar and would have loved a few deeper shades instead.
