White

Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette ($26.00 for 0.25 oz.) includes 11 eyeshadows in a small, compact case. I had no trouble getting an average-sized eyeshadow brush into each pan, but the quality of the palette was actually surprisingly bad–there was a cheapness to the formula that made colors look lighter and more white-based to the point where half the shades looked alike once on the lid. This was compounded by the fact that the palette itself lacks variety; a lot of light and light-medium shades and the one really dark shade (which ends up making more work for you as it was so difficult to blend and keep to small areas due to how dusty it was).

I have found that Too Faced’s formula tends to require eyeshadow primer to adhere and last awhile, but I can normally apply and get something decent without primer; these looked like utter garbage even over primer (like I just threw and rubbed glitter and pearl on my lid with no differentiation between colors). As I tested the palette, all I could think was, “Did Too Faced even try?” This palette made their holiday palettes–which weren’t so hot–look like winners. The funniest part is that there are several repeated shades from one of the holiday palettes, and they were better in that palette than they were here.

Glaze

Glaze is a very light beige with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, smooth and lightly dusty texture. It lasted for six hours before fading.

Ingredients

Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PTFE, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Saccharin, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492).

Ambrosia

Ambrosia is a light peach with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture was dry, chalky, and powdery, and it was difficult to keep in place, as it would sheer out as soon as I started to blend it and get everywhere. It made other colors appear ashy, and it seemed to fade even faster than has been the norm with Too Faced–four hours. This shade looked drastically different on compared to how it looked in the pan.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Saccharin, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, Carmine (CI 75470), May Contain (+/-): Ultramarines (CI 77007), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Exotica

Exotica is a light brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The consistency was drier and looser, which resulted in the shimmer separating from the base color, so it was messy to use and dragged shimmer everywhere; it was also a shade that looked significantly lighter swatched and applied compared to how it appeared in the pan. It lasted for six hours before fading.

Ingredients

Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Talc, Zinc Stearate, PTFE, Sodium Saccharin, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Pearl Candy

Pearl Candy is a bright white gold with silver sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a powdery consistency that kicked up a ton of excess product in the pan and did not apply evenly to the lid as it would not stick. Even over primer, it looked dusty and uneven. It lasted for four and a half hours on me.

Ingredients

Mica, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Talc, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Sodium Saccharin, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Polyurethane-33, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Aluminum Powder (CI 77000), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Raspberry Rose (White Chocolate)

Raspberry Rose (White) is a light pink with warm, golden shimmer. It was sheer, dusty, and dry, and on the lid, it looked like sparse shimmer with no visible color (I tried it next to Pearl Candy, and I couldn’t tell where Pearl Candy started and Raspberry Rose began). It was tough to tell how long it lasted, but it seemed to have faded significantly by the fourth hour.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sodium Saccharin, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Tin Oxide, Vanillin, Carmine (CI 75470), May Contain (+/-): Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Indulge

Indulge is a light taupe with warm, golden undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, fairly blendable texture that applied decently to the lid. It had faded after six and a half hours.

Ingredients

Mica, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Zinc Stearate, Talc, PTFE, Sodium Saccharin, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Tin Oxide, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Guilt-Free

Guilt-Free is a muted, medium purple with a matte finish. It had a very chalky, dusty texture that was hard to work with on the skin, as it was prone to sheering out, even over a primer. It lasted for six hours.

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PTFE, Zinc Stearate, Sodium Saccharin, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Ultramarines (CI 77007), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Cake Batter

Cake Batter is a light-medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was incredibly dusty and powdery, which resulted in sheer, dismal color payoff that applied unevenly and looked all but gone after five hours of wear.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sodium Saccharin, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, Carmine (CI 75470), May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Cookie Dough

Cookie Dough is a light-medium brown with flecks of gold micro-glitter over a matte finish. It was dry, dusty, and loose in the pan, and as you might expect at this point in the review (because it’s sounding redundant!), is that it sheered out and did not apply well to bare skin. I tried it over Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance, and I think it looked worse because the unevenness became even more prominent as parts of the color were darker than others. The glitter got everywhere but the lid. It had faded significantly after five hours of wear.

Ingredients

Mica, Talc, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sodium Saccharin, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Vanillin, Carmine (CI 75470), May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Sugared Raisin

Sugared Raisin is a light-medium mauve with flecks of copper sparkle over a metallic finish. It had decent pigmentation, but the glitter resulted in fallout during application as well as during wear. It lasted for six hours on me.

Ingredients

Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Mica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Talc, Silica, Zinc Stearate, PTFE, Sodium Saccharin, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Tin Oxide, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Black Sugar

Black Sugar is a deep black with subtle, cooler undertones and flecks of sparkle. The eyeshadow was quite firm in the pan, and I had to jab at the surface to make it workable. The glitter did not bind with the eyeshadow, so it did not appear on the lid. It was difficult to blend on the lid, but it lasted longer than most shades in the palette–seven hours!

Ingredients

Talc, Mica, Ethylene/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Sodium Saccharin, Boron Nitride, Polyethylene, Zinc Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Silica, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Sorbic Acid, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Fruit Powder/Theobroma Cacao Fruit Powder, Tin Oxide, Vanillin, May Contain (+/-): Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Thank you for your honest review and also for saving me money Haha

This palette looked promising at first and I’m a sucker for these kinds of shades, especially in a compact, non-bulky packaging but this is utterly dissapointing.

Except for the Pretty Rebel palette which was a huge hit for me (and you from memory, Christine), and the chocolate bar palette (for others) in general Too Faced seems to fall below par. I don’t understand why they put out this palette at all. Their brand looses a lot of credibility IMO with these releases.

I really wanted this palette because every single color is perfect for me and that never happens in premade palettes. Being so pale most premade palettes are intense and smoky on me. This reminded me of a softer version of the TF Boudoir Eyes palette which is my favorite premade palette. Also, being so pale I really don’t mind if eyeshadows are a bit sheer, I like a sheer look for daytime. But… I think a D is too bad a grade. I was hoping for a C.

I did, they were terrible haha. There were some good ones in there by people who seemed like they were looking for the same things I was….. and that gave me hope. But I can’t see dropping any $$ on something pretty universally deemed trash lol. Here’s hoping they re-release it in the spring with higher quality.

I know what you mean about a lot of Youtube gurus favourite palettes looking smoke on us pale girls. I just could get the most out of the Chocolate Bar original because the tonal range just reads too dark/deep overall for me. I actually love their Semi-Sweet on more.

Soooo disappointed with this year’s holiday/spring releases. On that note, I guess I’m going to let my VIB Rouge status go this year. There’s just not a whole lot I feel the need to buy. I find Ulta’s Platinum program more useful anyway. :'(

I knew this one was going to be really bad, but yikes!! Garbage even over primer? And that’s why I refuse to buy any Sweet Peach stuff without swatches and reviews first. I don’t know why people keep getting sucked into their hype and artificially limited stock.

Do you think that the sale of the company might have a negative impact on product quality? I was planning to purchase Sweet Peach during the re-release, but I’m now I’m anxious.

I don’t know if the sale is actually completed, but brands often plan and develop products 1-4 years in advance, so Too Faced as an independent brand more than likely made every decision related to this palette. While it’s something people say, many brands operate more independently even when acquired, since often the acquisition is to fill a whole in the parent company’s portfolio so they don’t want to mess it up too much!

Brands are constantly changing their formulas (often calling it an “improvement”), even if they’re an older, well established brand. Lancome, for example, has had several changes over the last 10 years alone, but none even compare to what they did in the 90s. Even Estee Lauder had a stronger game back then. When the consumers gripe about the ” same old thing”, brands feel a need to offer something “new”, but then others complain about “a ‘lack’ of quality”. On the other hand, some changes are considered improvements by most (ie, MUFE), while others prefer the originsl. It’s basically a catch-22. Not everyone will be happy…

Thanks for sharing, Amy! As I wasn’t buying makeup in the 90s, I can’t weigh in. I don’t personally agree that brands just go downhill over time, though – I feel that many formulas have improved over time, including from brands in the Estee Lauder formula.

I’ve been awaiting your review because I bought this, used it once, and returned it. I couldn’t believe how bad it was, but I needed to know if someone else had the same experience! The Sephora reviews pretty much confirmed it though!

When brands release something like this – something that is a lower price point than they normally do ($26 is quite good and even those who can’t always buy mid or high-end might stretch for it) – and then flop? It can really tarnish someone’s view of the brand.

With the exception of the Perfect Eyes eyeliners, I had sworn off buying any more TF products. But I bought this because the TF Chocolate Palettes are the only palettes I like from TF (and the only ones still in my stash). All it did was remind me of why I swore off TF in the first place.

I’m so pleased that I passed on this palette. We’re seeing these phenomenal shadow formulations from the likes of ABH and MUG, I feel like there’s no excuse technology-wise for such sub-par pigmentation. It’s a shame because some of the shades are really pretty (Indulge in particular is dreamy!).

Christine, thank you again for your completely honest and thorough reviews.

I looooved the colors in the palette (on screen), I’ve never bought a TooFaced eye shadow palette and thought this would be my first because it really is the light/pinky/pearly shades I can’t get enough of. You’ve saved me $$$ (again!)

Thanks for the honest review. I returned mine last week without touching it. TF should spend more money on product development and less on marketing. The fact that they so hype themselves really turns me off the brand (though i do like a few things)

This makes me wonder what goes on in their quality control. Do they even really care anymore what product they put out. It’s disappointing and sad. I really like the chocolate palettes and this would have been nice to add to the collection. Since this was released early for some people, maybe they can fix their formula when they fully release it. Idk. Just really sad. ?

I love the new layout of your review posts! It saves me time scrolling up and down for the narrative and swatches. It works very well on mobile version.

I ask myself that all the time when things perform this badly – while ratings are based on wear times, it isn’t just short-wear that will be frustrating for me; I understand the usefulness of primer and would not mind using it as a regular consumer for all products personally. I am, however, bothered by things that don’t function well even OVER primer!

Kiss of death review!!! Thank you for your honesty!! Too Faced’s entire holiday line up has been horrible and disappointing. I love this brand and I do like and use the Funfetti blush and eye palette, but other than that, I haven’t bought anything from them in a while. I know people are upset about Estee Lauder buying them, but when you look at the quality that Estee Lauder puts out compared to Too Faced’s recent products…. Hopefully Lauder will improve Too Faced’s palettes.

Christine, do brand owners ever call you to discuss your reviews? Do they try to change your mind or saying you are too harsh?

I stopped buying Too Faced palettes when they were still in the 9-pan, cardboard format. I’ve never been a big fan of the formulas, and the packaging/marketing has always struck me as too juvenile (I actually deported all my palettes…), and at that price point, it’s a bit condescending. If I wanted “softer” colors with cutesy cardboard packaging, I can pay 1/3 the price at Claire’s…

I feel like Too Faced has been going down hill. They keep producing LE crap and relying on hype to push it. Eventually this is going to backfire. People, like me, are catching on your the quality issues. Eventually hype won’t be enough.

Everyone I know who has bought this has said the same as you have here. I’m so glad I passed on this. Yes, it is less expensive than a full-sized palette, but consider it’s half the price of a full-sized, I think it should have been half the size also, and just as good quality-wise.

Yeowch. Makes me glad I didn’t get this one or the matte chocolate chip one (btw Christine, will you be reviewing that one too?). It’s a shame, as I was kind of tempted by the matte chocolate.

I was also looking at the matte chocolate chip but heard a lot less about it because it had a later release date of mid-December and it got totally overshadowed by everyone’s utter disappointment with the white chocolate chip. I think it may have been released for a very brief time (like just one day) but only on Too Faced’s own site? But I could be mistaken and totally making that last part up, haha (it’s so hard to keep track of all of this stuff, bless Christine for all she does!) But I feel like it will probably perform just as poorly given the general quality of many of the recent TF eyeshadow releases. There has to be a better, more bang-for-your-buck matte palette out there somewhere, no? I will keep searching, and if I don’t find anything that speaks to me, I will probably end up swatching out and gathering up some singles I like from various brands and pop them into an empty palette.

One word describes this: HORRID.

Too Faced really seems to be going downhill. But this palette is so unbearably BAD. I knew this palette was going to review poorly based on swatches I saw on another site where a few people bought it, swatched it, and were so disappointed that they promptly returned theirs.

Sad day! I was so hoping this was going to be a good one! Thanks for your honest review, as always. I knew there had to be a reason I wasn’t able to get it… What’s going on, Too Faced? Do you not want our money?

It seems that Too Faced is too wrapped up in the gimmicky adding-food-to-eyeshadow thing. Maybe, just maybe, adding food (or the chemical equivalent of the food scent) makes the rest of the shadow formula problematic. I don’t want scented shadow on my eyes and fail to see why the idea draws in so many people. They should concentrate on developing great colors in great formulae.

I don’t understand why too faced can release such crap?? I mean The Chocolate Palette is Nice Also the Stardust Palette is! Why even release anything if they wont stick to there quality formula shadow? It’s happening way, way, way to often I dont understand it. Especially with how expensive there stuff is..

This is heartbreaking. I loved the colors in the holiday palette so much, particularly Indulge and Sugared Rasin, but the quality was abysmal. I was hoping that their regular palette would do a better job with the formula, but from your description it seems that it really is worse. I did manage to get most of the colors from the holiday palette to work with e.l.f. glitter primer (yeah, GLITTER PRIMER, not regular primer), so maybe I’ll not be returning that one?

I really hope this is not what we can expect going forward with Too Faced. I’m seriously concerned.

I steered away from Too Faced quite some time ago due to their heavy focus on packaging at expense of actual product quality.
It wouldn’t surprise me that this gets a bad rating. But OMG! For Christine to associate it with the word garbage… that’s horrible ?

Damn, Too Faced. Not even a letdown so much as a disgrace. Thank you for rating it as I’ve suspected it to be; I keep seeing bloggers sugarcoat it when I can just tell from looking at it how bad it is. I always admire your honesty, Christine.

So disappointing Christine! I did not buy this particular palette, but I bought the Chocolate Chip one the night when it was available. I did not mind the size and I was attracted by the all-matte shades. I tried the original Chocolate Bar in store at Sephora and the shimmery shades were too shimmery on my fair skin with neutral to cool undertones. When TF announced the Chocolate Chip palette I thought “what great idea to have the matte version of some of the shimmery shades of the Chocolate Bar”. I received it last Friday and you asked me, Christine, how it performed. Well, I tried it in the past days with/without primer and allow me to share a few thoughts (hoe you don’t mind !).

First of all, I cannot use it without a primer as everything gets muddy and turns into a mess (the light colours do not stick to the eyelid without primer, with the exception of Marzipan). I used the UD primer but I think I need a more hydrating one with this palette.

Speaking of the colours on the left side of the palette: the only two colours that are buttery and blendable imho, are Marzipan (a pinkish light beige on me), followed by Crème brûlée (a soft beige). The other three (White Chocolate – the base colour, Semi-Sweet and Hazelnut) are workable but dry. Semi-Sweet and Hazelnut are almost identical on my skin.

Right side of the palette: here is where the disaster starts. I bought the palette mainly because of the shades here, like Candied Violet, Cherry Cordial (a deep burgundy) and Gilded Ganache (a deep khaki). Well, Candied Violet and Cherry Cordial are so gritty, that they feel almost like sandpaper. With the Candied Violet, the more you dig in the pan, the grittier it becomes. The Gilded Ganache is workable but muddy as is the Triple Fudge. I tried to apply Gilded Ganache and Cherry Cordial as an eyeliner with an angled brush and it worked (after some work). With Candied Violet it was impossible. The two light shades (Strawberry Bon Bon – pink and Champagne Truffle – very light pink), do not show up on me and do not blend. I found all the colours in the right side very dry.

I don’t know if my palette is part of a bad batch but I was so disappointed and felt let down by TF. The colours in this palette had so much potential; there are some really beautiful shades and TF has the winning formula for matte shades (Marzipan is like butter), why not use it for the other shades as well? As I ordered the palette from Canada, it’s not worth returning it in terms of shipping costs associated with ordering and returning it, so I’m stuck with it.

Oh, another thing; the smell is so strong that my eyes got teary when applying the eyeshadows and afterwards as well. I did not apply any mascara or eyeliner. It’s the first time when this happens to me when applying eyeshadows.

I’m curious to see your reviews Christine, if you have a chance to get this palette.

The Matte one, right? I don’t have that one, but it sounds just as bad! 🙁

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review with all of us, Nicole! It is crazy that the issues you had are similar to mine – the colors getting faded/muted/muddied and really not working well without primer… but even regular primer doesn’t feel like enough!

Yes Christine, it is the Matte one ! I apologise for two typos in my message…

I am far from having your knowledge and expertise in makeup but the Matte Chocolate Chip is an epic fail for me ! It is such a pity as TF could have done a great job with these two palettes. The shades in the Matte palette are beautiful when looking at them; good range of colours that would suit most of the skin tones and eye colours. But TF should realize that it is not acceptable to release such poor quality products; it is a total disrespect towards the customers. No one verified these palettes before release ? No quality control anymore ? Did TF put sand in some of the shades because this is what it feels like. Tomorrow I’m gonna post a review on their website.

Thank you so much for all your work and for your state of the art reviews ! I should have waited for your review before buying it. I jumped right when they released it thinking it’s gonna be a good one (based on the very good performances of the Chocolate Bar and of the Neutral Matte Eye Palette).

Christine, I’m curious if you have any intention of getting the Matte one for review. My opinion is that the left side is the one with the more workable shades; two of them are buttery and the remaining two are a bit on the dry side.

I’m quite sure you have plenty of knowledge and expertise, based on your helpful comments you’ve left on Temptalia! 🙂

I was surprised that the White one was as bad as it was – I expected something so-so, maybe a B/B-, but it was really disappointing!

I was going to, but now I’m not entirely sure, because this was bad and nobody has said the Matte one is better, LOL! I believe it’s supposed to be available on 12/14 with the rest of the Peach collection, and if that’s the case, then I’ll probably pick it up.

The last TF palette that I purchased was the Boudoir palette and I use that particular palette quite a lot as it has a lot of lighter shades which work well as transition shades for me since I have seen snow darker than me. Nothing about this palette spoke to me which normally would be unusual given the above reason. I am so sorry for those who purchased this and I hope they return it if they don’t like it. Hitting big brands like this where it hurts which is their bottom line is the only way to wake them up. Discerning shoppers are not going to continue to support a brand that performs so poorly. Thank you for your frank review. I knew I would get the real scoop here.

I’m glad that Boudoir is working for you, Deborah! I agree — returning (when it’s allowed, of course) is a good way to show the company, even just the retailer, that there is a real problem with the product.

Sooo glad I waited for you to review this. I can’t believe it’s that bad, but then I remember the holiday collection and I start believing. Thank you for such an honest review! (And for taking one for the team lol)

When I first saw this palette, I thought it was adorable and it’d be a great gift for my sister. Thanks for the thorough and honest review – and for saving me some money!!

Thank you for your honest review! You just saved me from a moment of disappointment, I was about to order this.
Makeup Revolution has made dupes of the Chocolate palettes before; I’ll better wait if they release a dupe of this one, at least I’ll only lose 10 bucks.

Thank you for the honest review, Christine. Not only saving me money, but proving to me that once and for all, that most Youtubers who receive stuff for free often don’t review them honestly. If you take a look at the sponsored YT reviews for this product, most of them are rave reviews. I realize people have different opinions, but hardly anyone who received it for free mentioned the problems you did.

I’d buy a trio of Guilt Free, Indulge, and Sugared Raisin that didn’t suck. There’s a certain cool greigeness that is interesting. I wouldn’t buy the whole palette for those three, even if they were good, though.

Overall, the palette seems way too pale to be useful to most (I’m pretty fair myself and I’d have trouble using this palette often even if the shades were true to pan)…I think they’re reaching with the chocolate themes now.

They should have moved to other desserts? Sugared fruits with a lot of pops of color could be fun and nicely scented.

I wasn’t interested as soon as I read the oz. per shadow and $26. And there was no pre-release to anyone that Jarod flew out to LA for his Sweet Peach campaign. Very questionable considering he tosses swag like seeds.

$26? Those shades remind me of actual kid’s makeup…. it’s a shame. Too Faced Glamour To Go II was my very first ‘real’ palette when I was 12, this could have been great as a gift to young makeup users as well but these don’t seem to measure up to my old palette’s quality at all. Feels like many high end brands have stopped trying.
