Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review & Video

Suuuper late on getting this post on the blog, but I wanted to make sure I got it up for you all! This is a new palette out for Spring from Too Faced, called Chocolate Bar. It contains 16 eyeshadows that all have cocoa powder in them, so the palette actually has a chocolate smell to it. The shadows come in varying textures, from sparkly to shimmery to matte and satin, along with coming in a nice range of mostly neutral shades (which also fits in with the chocolate theme!) Check out photos below, along with my video review.

Gilded Ganache is a dark brown satin with gold shimmer.

TFchocolateBar 3 White Chocolate TFchocolateBar 4White Chocolate

White Chocolate is a light beige matte. It’s slightly lighter than my skin tone, a little more pink as well. It has nice color payoff and texture.

TFchocolateBar 5 Milk Chocolate TFchocolateBar 6Milk Chocolate

Milk Chocolate is a taupe satin. The swatch here looks a little warmer than it actually is (sorry about that) but the texture is decent.

TFchocolateBar 7 Black Forrest Truffle TFchocolateBar 8Black Forrest Truffle

Black Forrest Truffle is a deep blackened burgundy shade with gold sparkle.

TFchocolateBar 9 Triple Fudge  TFchocolateBar 10Triple Fudge 

Triple Fudge is a dark chocolate brown matte. I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture on this one and found it wasn’t very smooth.

TFchocolateBar 21 Salted Caramel TFchocolateBar 22 Salted Caramel

Salted Caramel is a matte warm orangey brown. I love this shade, and it has really great color payoff and is super smooth.

TFchocolateBar 19 Marzipan TFchocolateBar 20 Marzipan

Marzipan is a super shimmery pink beige. Great texture here.

TFchocolateBar 17 Semi-Sweet TFchocolateBar 18Semi-Sweet

Semi-Sweet is a matte medium brown. Like some of the other mattes, this one didn’t have great texture.

TFchocolateBar 15 Strawberry Bon Bon TFchocolateBar 16Strawberry Bon Bon

Strawberry Bon Bon is a light baby pink with slight shimmer. This doesn’t have the most amazing color payoff, so if you really wanted it to pop I’d use it over a white base.

 

TFchocolateBar 13 Candied Violet TFchocolateBar 14Candied Violet

Candied Violet has a deep purple base with a brighter violet shimmer. I really love this shade, it works well for a smokey look with a bit of color.

 

TFchocolateBar 11 Amaretto TFchocolateBar 12Amaretto

Amaretto is a copper shimmer. Great texture and color payoff.

TFchocolateBar 23Hazlenut TFchocolateBar 24Hazlenut

Hazlenut is a warm brown with golden shimmer. Again, great texture and color here.

TFchocolateBar 25 Creme Brûlée  TFchocolateBar 26Creme Brûlée 

Creme Brûlée is a gold with loads of gold shimmer. I don’t really think the name fits the color (its a bit too gold, not enough golden brown) but the color is really nice.

TFchocolateBar 27 Haute Chocolate TFchocolateBar 28 Haute Chocolate

Haute Chocolate is a taupe brown with warm shimmer.

TFchocolateBar 29 Cherry Cordial TFchocolateBar 30Cherry Cordial

Cherry Cordial is a warm burgundy with slight silver sparkle. The sparkle is really subtle here, but This has decent color payoff.

TFchocolateBar 31 Champagne Truffle TFchocolateBar 32 Champagne Truffle

Champagne Truffle is a very light pink beige with loads of sparkle. Super smooth texture.

 

I love the packaging and design of this palette, and how it all really fits into the chocolate theme. I have to say I don’t love the way this smells- I’ve never been a fan of chocolate smells unless its like, a real chocolate bar or brownies or something, and even though this has real cocoa in it I still feel like it has that artificial chocolate scent going on. It’s not a huge deal, as the scent is only really strong when the palette is first opened, and then it mellows out.

With a few exceptions of a couple mattes that took more work than I’d like, I really did like this palette. I will have a couple looks posted using this palette over the next week, so stay tuned!

 

Also, in case you missed it, here is my video review of the palette. Enjoy!

    DAMMIT. I was completely all into the idea of this palette…and then you mentioned cocoa powder. And I’m allergic to actual chocolate. Dammit! haha

    I love the chocolate scent thing. The chocolate soleil bronzer is amazing but this has too many colored shadows for it to be worth it to me.
