Too Faced Haute Chocolate Collection Review

Come with me...And you'll be...In a WORLD of pure imagination! I'm on a willy wonka sugar high you guys! Grab a Snickers for this post! Is it Valentine's Day yet? Too Faced Cosmetics has me seeing hearts, eating chocolate and loving their collection (not sponsored)! I've never tried anything by Too Faced. So when they came out with their Haute Chocolate Cosmetic Collection, I knew it would be the perfect time to try their products. Candy themed packaging, yummy colors, and scented chocolate eyeshadow, definitely lured me in. Here's my candy themed review :)
Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet
supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)
Too Faced Sweethearts Blush ($30)
Something About Berry
Sweet
Isn't the packaging for this blush cute? It reminds me of candy hearts. I never eat them, but I always love the cute messages displayed on them. This blush comes in three (3) shades: candy glow, peach beach and something about berry. It's vegan friendly and paraben-free. The blushes are baked and there are 3 colors within each heart palette. You swirl all 3 colors together (or as you prefer) and apply to your cheeks. "Something About Berry" is very pigmented. Don't let my pictures fool you. You have to use a very light hand, or else you will look like a raggedy-ann doll. If you're unsure, go with peach beach. It's definitely a happy medium between the three colors. I prefer cream blush (blending), but I was impressed with Too Faced's formula.

Too Faced La Creme 
Color Drenched Lip Creme ($22)
Jelly Bean (Raspberry Red)
Supersweet
This is my FAVORITE item out of the entire collection! I'm a lipstick girl! I'm always getting compliments on the lipsticks I wear. I've tried a vast majority of brands. Do you guys remember how I raved over Marc Jacobs? Well, I like this lip creme even MORE! It's creamy! Not sticky! Moisturizing! Pigmented! It doesn't feel like LIP-STICK! I'm throwing away my stash (except Marc Jacobs) and buying more of these! I'm serious. Too Faced, I love you. Whatever the formula is for this, it's beyond brilliant. It's a beautiful thing. I have to buy more. LOVE w/ whip cream, a cherry & sprinkles on top! :) Oh! The color Jellybean is gorgeous! They say raspberry red...I say hot pink ;)


Too Faced Candy Bar Pop Out Makeup Palette ($25)
Bittersweet
Honestly, I just purchased this for the candy bar iPhone case. HaHaHa Just keeping it real. I could've cared less about the eyeshadows. But I'll review it anyway. It contains 11 eyeshadows, a blush and bronzer. They're ok, but I wouldn't waste my money on them. The colors & pigmentation are hit or miss. The iPhone case is nice. I wanted it, because I collect "sweet" and "dessert inspired" packaged makeup. So bottom line...Save $25 on this, unless you're a collector. Makeup-wise, you can find something better. I can't believe my arm is that pale? :(

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection ($49)
Supersweet
This eyeshadow palette is so awesome. It looks like a chocolate candy bar on the outside and it has a lovely mirror on the inside. The eye shadows are chocolate scented (pure antioxidant-rich cocoa powder) and they smell awesome too. Too Faced even put together some "how-to's" of shades that blend well together. I'm not an eyeshadow connoisseur, so that really helps. This palette will definitely be fun to play with. People are always asking whether they should get Urban Decay's Naked Palette 3 or this one. They're very different! I don't own Naked 3, but I've seen enough swatches. The Too Faced shades are "darker". Naked 3 is more neutral, everyday wear. At least that's how I see it. I think you would get more versatility out of the Naked 3 palette. I plan on purchasing Naked 2 and 3 later this year, but I luuuvvvve this palette. Creme Brulee..YES! Hazelnut...YES! Amaretto...YES!!! Hope you guys enjoyed :)

  5. I would have gotten them just for the packaging, hahaha!! But, I'm glad some of them were awesome. I adore that lip colour, that is wonderful & a lot like the shade I've been looking for, it suits you perfectly. Haha...the phone cover, shame it didn't work, the eye colours look a but weak, but least you have a cool phone cover out of it, I like that!! Not a complete loss in a way. I like the colours in the last palette, the way they shimmer is quite lovely!! Super review doll..love the concept of these!! I hope you have a sweet day :) xx

  17. I swear...Too Faced comes up with the cutest collections. To this day, the Alice in Wonderland one still tickles me:D I still have a Sephora gift card left over from Xmas so I'll see if I can get my hands of some of these items. That lipstick and eyeshadow palette sound like they'll be great purchases. Thanks for the review, Kim.:)

  18. Kim, you have no idea how much Im drooling over this collection (which made me want to grab a piece of chocolate too!), just awesome! The packaging is one of the sweetest ever, wonder if I will find it. I never tried Too Faced products too, but onto my wishlist they are always, the Naked especially. The blush is very cute and suits you, also the lips creme. Im a lipstick girl too, is beautiful hot pink indeed! What a shame the palette, at least you got the case! Also the chocolate bar is too yummy!^^ Happy Wed my dear, kisses!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The packaging is too cute! And it's two times awesome when the inside is as great as the outside chocolate bar. Definitely makes a cute collectible makeup!

  21. Oh my - the packaging is to die for. I literally thought this post was all about chocolate and sweets at first glance, Kim. Many of the products turn out as good as the packaging which is a big plus. I totally want the eye shadow palette especially when you mentioned they are scented, yummm!!

  43. I am sold on the adorable packaging alone and then I read your awesome review and was even more thrilled that these products turned out to be so good. Love the cute palettes, some great shades and the blush is so pretty on you. Hope your week is going well hun.

    ReplyDelete
  44. OMG - just the name 'Haute Chocolate' is too fun and that lip color is so beautiful on you. I love how it looks moisturizing too which is so good for the winter and the pink is seriously perfect on you for winter or summer. - Also I thought you cut your hair too, love the idea of pinning it for a different look. I watched Golden Globes fashion recaps and saw that. :) Nice post Kim!

  57. Well, Kim you know that I have a sweet too and I'm a chocoholic so I obviously loved your post! The names of the eye shadow (black forest truffle!!) and the chocolate bar packaging immediately made my mouth water. The blusher and lipstick really suit you too. Once again a detailed and very helpful review of the products.

  62. Wow, that lip colour really suits you! I think I've bought one of their products once (a "lip plumper" - god knows why, my lips are actually ok) and remember that I did like the packaging of the things they had. The chocolate eye colours look lovely and very wearable.

    Hope you're well. I'm "recovering" from some long trade show days now ;-) xo

  66. This is the best blush I've ever seen you wearing. As far as the lipstick is concerned, I always see you with awesome lips. After this review I'd love to try the peachy blush and the lipstick. For Christmas I got myself the basic eye makeup brush set from Too Faced: the three brushes work all right but come in very pricey. The idea of chocolate scented shadows is very appealing :-) Love,
