Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar & Original Chocolate Bar Revew, Swatches, Comparison and Giveaway

Monday, January 5, 2015

Oooh! I'm up to my eyelids in CHOCOLATE! I finally swatched my new Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette and I'm in love! If I had to sum up this palette in one word, I would choose the word QUALITY. In comparison to last year's Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, this one is sleeker (thinner & less bulky), the eye shadows are creamier and the majority apply exceptionally well (except for a couple). Too Faced has also engraved the names of the eye shadows ON the palette. The original palette only had eye shadow names printed on a clear sheet overlay. This palette has the same awesome chocolatey scent and mirror! Not only did I swatch THIS palette, but I RE-SWATCHED the original Chocolate Bar Palette for comparison. Below are my thoughts. I'm giving away a Too Faced Semi Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette to a lucky reader! This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE (wherever USPS ships). May the force of Willy Wonka be with you :) I hope you get the GOLDEN TICKET! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.



The outer box is absolutely adorable. Who can resist polka dots, hearts, gold and the color pink? 
And how cute are the names? I busted out my faux truffles for this post.


The palette itself is shaped like a chocolate candy bar. It's lighter in color than last year's palette.
It's also thinner and less bulkier than last year's palette. Here's the front & back!


It smells just like CHOCOLATE! Mmmm! It contains a mirror and a total of 16 eye shadows. I was worried about the colors at first, but after I swatched them I was very pleased with the quality (except for two). I'll discuss below.

Here are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rows! In the first row, the only color that was a little chalky was coconut creme.
In the second row, I suggest applying pink sugar wet. It doesn't work well dry. Other than those two everything else was dreamy. I have to give it to Too Faced! They know metallics. I can't tell you how gorgeous they are in person! :)
Here are the eye shadow guides they give you. Actually it's double-sided.



For my FELLOW BEAUTY ENTHUSIASTS that want to compare palettes. I took a picture of both palettes side by side (below) AND re-swatched the original palette, so you can compare colors. Yes, I analyze my makeup. LOL

Cee said...

I was gifted both of these palettes this holiday season and I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality. I've never tried Too Faced before and my expectations weren't high, but as it turns out, I love both palettes - the colours give so much payoff and the chocolate scent is such a lovely bonus!
xox,
Cee

I have just recently become interested in a better, more sustainable, cruelty-free lifestyle. I am ditching all of my cheap, awful cosmetics. Too faced cosmetics are what brought me here, and I will stay tuned, because I have no idea how to do my makeup. Haha. If I can figure it out half as well as you have, I'm set.

Thanks!
