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 :)
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
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)
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)
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)
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 :)

I love the earth color of it! great collection!

The Dainty Dolls House said...

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

Anne said...

That lipstick looks fab on you Kim....great review:)


Wow, looks amazing! I love themed palettes for makeup, it just makes everything so much better. It's such a shame about the candy bar pop out palette. But, that lip colour looks incredible on you Kim! :) /Madison

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.:)

Lilli said...

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!

ftashion said...

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!

MaysaAndSunshine said...

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!!

Hey Kim! This make up look so good and what a tempting design, they look yummy!!!

ALLIE NYC said...

You always find the cutest packaging. The blush looks great! I do not wear it b/c of my Irish blood I was blessed a natural (ruddy) glow : O

I picked up some new shadow and gloss at Vitoria Secret's annual sale but have not used it yet.

Unknown said...

That's brilliant, might get me one and put in the cupboard - the Mr and kiddies are always on the prowl for some chocolate - this would be a surprice haha - love the colors here though - very cute :)

Emilie said...

Aaargh this post was so bad for me I'm sooooooo craving a twix now hahah :) I heard about Too Faced before but I have not anything from them, maybe I will now because those packages look - with lack of a better word - delicious!!! Those blushes look really really amazing! xxx

xo Jo


Carmen said...

The products look so cute and make me crave for something sweet :D I think both the blush and lipstick match your skin and hair shade perfectly! Also the colours of the eye shadow palette are among my favourites for make-up :)
Oh and thanks for your comment on my "new in" post. I will try to write a review about the cleanser next week :)

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Kim, this has to be some of the cutest packaging ever and how pretty do you look in that blush and lip creme! I totally want to try their lip cremes now!
Thanks for asking! I'd love to do a guest post of my recommended Asian movies. The week of the 27th would be good since I'm kind of booked next week.

Yay! You are back today! Missed you yesterday :)

Your comment about how pale your arm is made me chuckle!

I have never used TooFaced products before but that lipstick looked fantastic! Is it available at Ulta or Sephora?

Sam said...

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.

Unknown said...

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!


Darcy said...

The packing of this product is so cute!! However, now of course I'm craving chocolate ;)

Unknown said...

hahaha i would be doing the same thing too buying for the iphone case. But they do look so yummy and cute. I love the shades too! Thanks so much for the sweet comment at my blog Kim it was my pick me up for the day!

Thanks for always doing such wonderfully thorough reviews, Kim! Too Faced is one of those brands I've just never been sure about, but thanks to you I know I will definitely be trying their lipsticks - I can't believe how creamy and glossy that colour is!

Unknown said...

Everything looks so amazing! :O I've never tried anything from this brand before either, but I'm definitely going to! :D
Thanks you so much for the lovely review! I didn't even know this brand existed!

miss b said...

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.

Maddie said...

Oh my, oh my! I can definitely understand why you said that the Valentines day has come early! This box and all of its contest is the sweetest and cutest thing I have seen in a while!
I would love to try out each and every one of those products, especially that lip stick, since you gave a really good review on it!
Thank you for this post, Kim! Now I am officially hooked for Valentines day! :D


Unknown said...

Sooo pretty! Defiantly on of the interesting packaging and ideas what so ever.
Maybe we can be friends and follow each others on GFC and Bloglovin? Let me know!

Rachna said...

These are so sweet! (Just like your blog) I feel like muching on the packaging! Aweh!


Unknown said...

the packaging had took my breath away! and you make the chocolate bar look even realistic by adding those bits and pieces of real chocolates around it!
you really did a great job in beautifying it !
thanks for the review!

Carole Poirot said...

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

Unknown said...

Looking good! I'd be worried chocolate-scented make-up would make me crave chocolate :-)

always, koru kate

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,
