This post was only supposed to be about my love for Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette but then I ended up swatching my other faves and yeah, make sense to roll this all in one. *nods*
**Yes, I know you’re probably sighing like this is old news but believe it or not, there are a lot of people still trying to figure out which neutral palette is best for them. Like me when I started out, a neutral is a neutral is a neutral and I didn’t want to be that type of hoarder. I hoard for lippies but that’s another post. Lol. So I figured out Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette was right for me.**
Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette I have owned for some time now. What drew me closer to this than getting Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (that was on the top of my list) was the fact it’s made out of 100% cocoa. Yes. You read that right. Cocoa. Cacao. A yummy treat that is highly addictive for those with a sweet tooth.
Too Faced Chocolate Bar
Front of the box TFCB came in
Quad-fold insert on different looks
Please never mind those finger prints lol..
Top swatches from L to R: Gilded Ganace, White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate,
Black Forest Truffle and Triple Fudge
Last two rows from L to R: Salted Caramel, Marzipan, Semi-Sweet, Strawberry Bon Bon,
Candied Violet, Amaretto, Hazelnut, Creme Brulee, Haute Chocolate, Cherry Cordial and Champagne Truffle
I L O V E everything about this palette and *whispers* honestly, I have used everything but Strawberry Bon Bon. *still whispering* I’m a newbie at this sooo I wouldnt even know how to use it giggles. Someone fill me in. It doesnt look right as a highlighter to me.
Each shade performs like a dream with very minimal fallout. They’re super buttery smooth and while some are a tad sheer, you can layer it on like your life depended on it and it will still look beautiful.
I wish I can show you my go to look. Maybe I will update this post when I do but hopefully yall have great imagination lol.
First off I have oily lids so I would apply my favorite primer evah Wet n Wild Fergie eyeshadow primer, then Sigma eye shadow base Compote.
Here’s a picture of the insert to better show you how I have my look!
So I would apply Maybelline 24 Hour Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk all over the lid. Then Cherry Cordial is in the outer V where #2 is, the inner corner of my eyes where I highlight is Creme Brulee and where #4 is, thats where I apply NYX eyeshadow single in Nutmeg and lightly blend. I also use Nutmeg on the lower lash line and at the far lash line corner near the outer V, I use Cherry Cordial. I rarely use a highlight in #1 but when I do, I use Stila All Over Shimmer powder in Kitten.
So yeah, I am such a newb and that’s the only way I rock an eye shadow look.
Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow
L to R: Bad to the Bronze, Tenacious Teal, Bold Gold, Painted Purple, Pomegranate Punk, (Swatch of Too Faced Chocolate Bar Amaretto. They kinda look like dupes, no?), Electric Blue, Edgy Emerald
These ‘shadows are hella pretty but the only con is how your room is temperature is depend on their performance. During the summer months, my apartments gets ridiculously hot. I would keep the AC on for an hour, turn it off and it’ll tale 10 minutes to turn it back on again lol. Just picture the oven on all day and you can feel the heat when you get into the kitchen. Smh. When it gets that warm, these babies glide on so smooth! Once Fall/Winter kicks in it takes hella stiff so I would have to wrap a warm towel around it. Crazy, I know but at least they never dry on me.
NYX Eye Shadow Nutmeg
Ugh, this is soooo beautiful. If I’m hella lazy, I would pat this on my lid, line my eyes underneath my eye lid with UD Perversion, mascara and go. Its super buttery soft too. Can also use this as a bronzer.
There you have it! My fave eye shadows at the moment. I recently purchased Lorac Pro Palette 2 and will review it as soon as it comes in (as if you’re not sick of all the past reviews on it yet). :]
