TooFaced Exclusive Palette – The Chocolate Shop – Review & Swatches

too faced the chocolate shop review + swatches

After hearing many good things about TooFaced eyeshadow palettes and seeing pictures of their cute packaging all over the internet I finally went ahead and tried my very first TooFaced palette.

I spotted their Christmas exclusive palette at Sephora and was sorely tempted – the great thing is that it not only contains a varied range of eye shadows but also miniature versions of some of TooFaced’ classics: the iconic Better Than Sex Mascara, Melted Chocolate liquid lipstick and a tube of 24H Shadow Insurance.

For anyone with a major chocolate craving, TooFaced offers a whole range of chocolate themed products from the iconic chocolate bar eye shadow collection to melted chocolate liquid lipstick. These products are also lightly chocolate-scented.

Swatches

I have swatched the shimmering and matte nudes for you here. Of these, I particularly like Banana Date and Glaze which are perfect basic neutral shades. I also love that they come in a slightly bigger pan as neutral colours always tend to be the first empties in a palette. My two favourite shades are actually the darker ones that have coloured sparkle in them: Huckleberry has hot pink sparkle and Lava Cake copper-coloured sparkle (unfortunately, even though I tried my best, I couldn’t capture this on camera but they actually look quite stunning in real life if you like glitter).

Conclusion

To be honest – overall, I’m quite in love with this palette. I had never tried TooFaced before so all these shades were new to me . Also, I’m quite a fan of subtle shimmer in an eye shadow so I will actually use many of these shades in my everyday makeup. I also think you get a great selection of different products for the price so it was well worth it – especially when you have never tried anything from this brand. The Better Than Sex mascara is actually quite nice as well and I’m using it at the moment.

Of course, the packaging with all its pink and gold is pretty much a girly girl’s dream come true – I love the little details such as this cute doggie and birdie cutout.

You can also take the actual palette out of the box to carry with you on its own. And you gotta love the diorama presentation of the miniatures!

The formula suffers some inconsistencies with several shades having a spectacular colour pay-off while others are just meh and have a bit of fall-out. Considering the amount of colours you get, I have to say, that this doesn’t bother me too much though.

The scent is noticeable but neither here nor there – bear in mind I’m usually not a fan of scented products though. This palette is supposed to smell of chocolate but to me it’s more of a milky sweet smell with maybe a hint of chocolate – like a very light chocolate milkshake. I have to admit I don’t need the scent but it’s not unpleasant either.

 

Would recommend for:

People who don’t have a lot of TooFaced eye shadows already

People who go in for cute packaging

Makeup starters (as you get a lot of different things here)

  8. The sweet shop themes are so cute! I have not tried any of these products, but the swatches look great. I really like the pigment in the Mint Chip and Jingle Berry. I’m not a fan of scented products either, but I gotta admit I’m curious about what the supposed chocolate scent smells like. :)
