Too Faced Matte Chocolate Chip and White Chocolate Chip Eye Shadow Palettes Review and Swatches
Friday, December 16, 2016
I don't know what to do with Too Faced! I love them. I hate them. For Black Friday, they came out with two MINI eye shadow palettes. The concept (as usual) was so cute (and different)! FUN-SIZE!?! You know, like fun size candy that is given out for Halloween!?! Yes, please! Everyone was SUPER-HYPED to get these! The Matte Chocolate Chip, could only be purchased from Too Faced dot com (still available). The White Chocolate Chip was exclusive to Sephora (they have it listed as Coming Soon Hmmm). Now get this! The Matte Chocolate Chip is simply a smaller version of their first Chocolate Bar palette. It doesn't contain all the shades from the original, but only 11 shades. I used Smashbox primer on my hand and that's about as pigmented as I could get with these. I have Too Faced everything! Too Faced just doesn't do matte shadows very well. So I didn't expect much from these. But looking at my Original Too Faced Chocolate Bar Swatches compared to the Matte Chocolate Chip below, the original was MUCH BETTER (you do not need this mini version). In my opinion, the White Chocolate Chip was better. It had more SHIMMER SHADES! Too Faced does good with shimmers & foil type shadows. The mattes were the bummers in these. But honestly, if you have the UD Naked eye shadow palettes, you have these shades! LOL To want these two palettes to USE, is a waste of money! I'm a makeup collector, so I wanted them for the packaging. They look so cute in my makeup room. Many beauty enthusiasts on social media felt the same way I did. It's hard to predict Too Faced! They have a bunch of HITS. Then they have MISSES. You just never know! There were no swatches of these before purchase, because many wouldn't have purchased if they would've known. Too Faced made some quick money with this. They've already previewed their Easter palette. All I can say is LOOK TO SEE IF THERE ARE MORE SHIMMERS THAN MATTES! That's what I'll be doing for now on UNLESS I REALLY WANT THE PACKAGING. Those are my thoughts ;) I love their candy bar theme! I'll have a review of their new Peach Collection soon. It's now permanent due to its popularity.
