You certainly are an eternal optimist….I, for one, would not make even a tiny wager thereon. And I don’t mean that snarkily, though I do foresee glitter floors for those who choose it.

Is it just me, or does thatnpalette look like a whole lot of fallout? I feel like the quality of Too Faced has been on a steady decline the past few years, and i just have a gut feeling that that palette would leave my face, not my eyes, looking like a disco ball. And I am a big fan of glitter shadows! Can’t wait for your review!

It looks like it will have the texture to pair perfectly with their Glitter Glue. I am a HUGE fan of Glitter Glue and use it with all shimmery (not just glittery) shadows to help the shadow adhere to the lid, last longer, and to bring out the metallic shine.

I think they excel in mattes and I wish that they would focus on creative matte powders more. I loved their chocolate soliel bronzer, but I hated the shimmery eyeshadows I’ve gotten from them. Recently I acquired their peach matte pallette, and once again I’m torn. It’s a great pallette. Probably the best all matte eyeshadow pallette that I’ve used. To be fair its mostly because the shades work so well with my skintone. I really wanted to use Modern Renaissance and Lime Crime Venus, but I’m not a shimmery shadow type of person. I’ve used Stila In the Know, Kat Von D Ladybird, Smashbox Artist Pro and UD Naked Basics, but I found myself only using at best half of the shadows in each of them. Closest I’ve come before this to a HG matte palette is Stila In the Know, and sadly it was discontinued a couple of years ago.

Or needs a 12-step program. It’s like they want to make it as hard as possible for people to buy their products. IN WHAT WORLD is this a good idea?!?

I’m done with TF, lousy quality last year or two. Buh bye.

This whole collection just feels like it’s trying too hard, like they’re desperate for another angle on the chocolate bar theme.

I will NEVER wear “scented” eyeshadow of any kind. The concept makes no sense to me and my delicate peepers. I have enough ingredients to worry about keeping away from. I swear my eyes are watering right now as I type this comment. I will be staying far away from this for sure.

I don’t even have problems with fragranced cosmetics, for the most part, but I’ve been lamenting TF starting this whole craziness of scented eyeshadows. Forward-thinking companies have been removing fragrance for years and TF figures it’s a good idea to turn that clock back???

I think the palette looks really nice. I will wait to see swatches, reviews but think this might be a xmas treat to myself. I am hoping they are more foiled than glitter, fingers crossed. Thanks Christine.

Hey, I’m feeling the same way. I know toofaced gets some backlash (personally returned stuff from the brand cause of bad quality) but, I’m willing to check it out for myself at Ulta which I work next door to. I think this palette looks yummy hehe

Is meet but this is just the Clover and their other Christmas one but only a bit deeper and a glitter bomb. I like a lot of Too Faced but they to stop pumping out so many so so palettes and concentrate on something unique and of quality. I’m not seeing gimmicky throw aways here. I like TF and I have fallen for my fair share but ugghh, I’m not feeling this!

Why would they release a holiday collection (in store, at least) after Christmas? Maybe it’s intended more for New Years but that still seems weird.

The palette looks prettyAlthough I wish they had threw a blue sparkle in there someplace. Not sure what they’re playing at launching all those separate dates and location. Kinda confusing.

Because I’m pretty darn sure that all these pretties have the DREADED bane of my existence Sodium Saccharin in them, I don’t want to let myself begin to even like these! Why, Too Faced? Just why? 😧

Can I ask why that product is bad for you?
I usually like most of Too-faced stuff, except I was highly allergic to the new sweet peach palette which was so disappointing because I liked the color scheme.
Also I personally can’t use any lip products with Hydro-cinnamate, menthol, or any plumping agents. It causes instant cold sores!!
I always see and respect your comments, I look forward to your reply 🙂

Hi Shauna, I have a pretty serious sulfa allergy, which is unfortunate because Sodium Saccharin is a sulfa. Around 4 years ago, I did buy the 1st Chocolate Bar Palette and had a very severe reaction, contacted Ulta where I purchased it, SA asks me if I have a sulfa allergy, I say yes, she then tells me that due to the saccharin in the palette, people have been getting reactions. Up until then, I did not even realize that Sodium’s was indeed a SULFA! Never realized that mouth sores I had suffered from were due to THAT ingredient being used in many a flavored lip product, either.

Thank you so much for replying! I have just started becoming aware of what ingredients are in the products I put on my face. A person just assumes the makeup or skincare company has their best interests at heart. It’s scary to start learning what they can actual get away with because it’s not closely regulated!!
Thanks again 🙂

It actually is pretty closely regulated. Cosmetics companies need consumers to be aware of their allergy issues and to keep themselves informed (and choose products accordingly); most of them aren’t trying to “get away with” anything. While granted, some ingredients have a higher potential for reaction than others, it would be impossible to produce a product that had *no* potential for reaction.

Another family that you might wish to bolo for is chemical sunscreens. There are too many to list, but allergies to them are skyrocketing. If you are allergy prone, be careful. I had to rule out most foundations bec of them. Also, Benzyl Salicylate is a chem sunscreen, but its more common usage is a fragrance modifier. You may see it listed on fragrance products. Part of my reaction makes my temp drop to 93, and it feels as if death just might be on the horizon! The idiosyncratic part is that you can be allergic to some, but not all chem sunscreens. Personally, not willing to find out… Some brands, especially those with scented products (by Terry comes to mind) use BS extensively. It may even be more common than ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, which I think is the most provocative sunscreen. If you want to start researching this stuff, EWG (environmental working group) and Cosdna are good places to start.

Okay reading through this and realizing that I’m not the only one allergic to some cosmetics ingredients. My skin HATES oxtinoxate (which is found a lot of sunscreens) and I only found out when I had a severe reaction to Maybelline’s Fit Me line about five years ago.

This is interesting. My whole life doctors have put on my chart that I have a sulfa allergy because several family members are allergic and they didn’t want to take chances. I’ve used both the original Chocolate Bar and Peach palettes without issue. Maybe I’m not allergic to sulfa after all. I never would have guessed saccharin and sulfa are related. I’ll also never understand why a sweetener has to be in an eyeshadow formulation! 🤔

Just because you might have an allergy to sulfa-based drugs, doesn’t always mean that you’ll have that same reaction to a sulfa derivative in a cosmetic. They’re not the exact same, but people with severe allergies may experience adverse reactions to both. I can’t take sulfa-based medications, but don’t seem to have problems with topical sulfa-derivatives. Again, my doctor explained it as “not all sulfas are equal.”

Nancy, thanks for the explanation. It explains why I can’t wear TF. I’m allergic to sulfa too. I was assuming it was the fragrance and since there are so many other companies that I can wear without issue, I never looked further. I just stayed away from TF. Why would they continue adding it. Its obviously not necessary.

I have thought of you many times at my night job, where they have remaindered elf gloss. Omg, got a purple and a burgundy. They had saccharine or some other artificial sweetener. It seeped right in your mouth, and sweetener wasn’t even listed on the ingredients. Sweet $&*( yuck! I put them in the office as freebies, and no one took them! 90% + of the customers I warned chose not to buy them. I also give the sensitivities lecture and tell them that e/s, too, can have saccharine….and many are surprised and don’t understand. Come to think of it, neither do I! If >90% of the uninformed public rejects the idea, it rather shows that artificially sweetened products are driven by the manufacturer, rather than by public demand.

Everything you just wrote is 100% TRUTH, KJH. It is the corporate heads and marketing reps that are responsible. There ought to be allergen warnings on cosmetics just as we now have on food, because eyes and mouths are just as sensitive, if not more so, than our alimentary tract!

Wow Too Faced is just cranking out those Chocolate Bar palettes!
In the words of Kimberly Clark (youtube) “What I’m not gonna buyyyyyyy!!!!”

Surprised that the Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow palette doesn’t have 15 different versions of gold and brown honestly. Passing on all of this.
I also this that the Diamond Highlighter looks out of place in this collection, the packaging and the color of it imo.

I wanted to love this for the diamond highlighter (I’m a big Marina and the Diamonds fan) but ughhhhh this collection. The names on that palette make me feel like a class traitor lmao

Love this palette! Mostly shimers with a brown and a black matte. This is right up my alley and I usually hate Too Faced products. As long as those shadows are not glittery and just shimmery I am totally in I have never been a lover of matte shadows and am happy with less than half of a palette being matte.

Honestly I like the look of the whole thing. That chocolate gold is calling my name too!

Ah, I swore I’d never buy TF again buuuuuut… I actually quite like the look of this, despite it being tacky AF. I think the mattes in the e/s palette are well chosen and as long as the rest of the shades are metallic/foiled and not glittery, then I might consider it. Maybe.

Not fussed on the rest of the collection though.

I wish I loved this more, but I need more mattes and better color schemes in my life. This collection seems like it’ll be better suited to deeper skin tones though, which is a plus. Not my thing, but I hope that those who get it love it!

This highlighter looks kinda boss, but unless it looks very different from my current collection, this whole release is a pass for me.

Wow the negativity for all things Too Faced. I mean, to each their own. I’m personally looking forward to this stuff. Mainly because I’ve enjoyed a lot of their recent releases. The peach powder, foundation and primer are EXCELLENT (and hug proof), most of the highlighters are subtle and work wearable, packaging is cutesey but im into it. Recently I got the Clover palette and i’m obsessed with it. So many looks out of it and no one does shimmer and sheen like TF. Idk…I’ve been happy with their stuff and this looks awesome. If that gold highlighter is like Fenty but without the chalk and glittery fallout…I may have to get it 😀

That white highlighter looks stunning. I don’t know how I feel about the eye palette. The Glitter Bomb Palette they put out was pretty terrible. I’m going to keep an eye out for reviews.

The shadow called “Famous” needed to be a completely different color IMO; waaaaay too similar-looking to the big pan above (I think it should have been another matte … maybe a midtone neutral-warm grey?). The diamond highlighter is interesting. — nicely packaged, kinda pretty. Not my cup of tea, so I’m in no danger of getting it, but I think they put that particular item together nicely.

And they should have made “Old Money” more red-tinged. Of course, I won’t be buying any of this because of the fragrance and crazy, shiny (likely glittery) finishes, but I feel like they came oh-so-close on the eyeshadow palette to a really nice, fairly unique assortment.

Darn, they have terrific Photoshop skills because I’m drooling over the palette and highlighter, but I know they’ll be junk. At least that’s good news for my wallet!

Again, that palette looks so “unoriginal” – UD has done Moondust and “Metal” palettes already and most other companies have imitated that so to my jaded eye, this just looks like one more “variation on a theme”. Having said that, though, I got an email from TooFaced showing an eye look with this palette and it looks really lovely. I think for someone who doesn’t have too much eyeshadow and too many palettes already, this might look very attractive, if it performs well. That highlighter – when I first saw the photo, I though it was a package with a 2nd, interior lid….I didn’t realize that THAT was the actual product (I guess it’s the Diamond Highlighter).

Why are all the palettes at the moment focused on glitter/sparkle?
Too Faced you have burnt us all many times and I think this is going to be one giant glitterbomb.

I think the highlighter is interesting; I’ll swatch it when it shows up in my Ulta. I’m strongly judging the release schedule for this collection, though.

I live in the U.K. and our instore stockists get very little of the new releases. I love the look of this palette and have asked for it for Christmas. I think my husband bought it online yesterday so can’t wait now. I only own neutral palettes.

I don’t hate it which is surprising b/c it’s Too Faced. I’m actually more intrigued by this metallic palette than the Urban Decay one. Although, I’m quite sick of TF throwing in a random fuchsia shade in all of their palettes. It would have been so much better had it been a red shadow. But as intrigued as I am by this, I don’t see myself buying it.

I bought the palette today from sephora and to be quite honest, I thought it was going to be terrible but I was shocked that the eyeshadows are easy to blend. I know it’s all glittery but there is so many other palettes in different brand that you can use to blend with the glittery eyeshadows.

How do you think the chocolate gold palette compares to the UD heavy metals palette? I got the chocolate gold palette as a gift but I have been eyeing the heavy metals palette for a while now & since Sephora has a such a good sale going on….I am considering purchasing it. Was wondering if I truly “need” 2 metallic palettes in my collection…I was curious to see what your thoughts are 🙂
