What else you need to know:
Too Faced Co-founder and Creative Director Jerrod Blandino learned of the healing properties of cocoa while getting a chocolate facial in Maui. With Chocolate Bar he created a first-of-its-kind palette that combines the healing benefits of chocolate with richly pigmented, velvety smooth shadows. Chocolate has been used for centuries for its soothing properties and to protect, condition, and heal skin that has been damaged by sun and wind. Studies have shown that the scent of cocoa powder can increase memory and brain power. (Note: All information taken from brand website)

My opinion about the palette
The interesting thing about the palette is that it looks like a chocolate bar and it is actually made of cocoa powder and it has a chocolate smell to it which is wonderful! Its kind of new to me…Scented eye shadow concept. The scent doesn’t stay once you apply the colors though. You can read in this post here to know how I fixed the mirror of this..mirror came cracked during transit.
There are 16 colors out of which 2 are highlighters (double sized). Palette comes with a mirror attached to it. Its a magnetic box and comes with a insert which has shade names.The texture of the shadow varies from shade to shade, sparkly,shimmery,matte,satin. Altogether a nice range of mostly neutral shades. I just love the shades. All of the shades are really pigmented and this palette can be used for creating multiple looks. Buttery smooth shades which are not chalky at all…All of the shades blends effortlessly and don’t need a primer too. I have only tried a few of the colors, but so far I’m pleased.
A good mix of mattes and shimmers. The candid violet color looks just beyond AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL in the crease. You’ll have fun with this palette.
Now, Its time for a look which I created using this palette 🙂
-great chocolate smell
-easy to blend and apply
-no parabens or sulfates or phthalates
Wish it came with a brush or something for the nearly $50 price point, but whatever. I love it! The only complaint I have about this palette is the shadow name insert. I wish the names were actually printed on the packaging like Urban Decay….
Overall I love this palette and if you ask me This or naked 3; My answer would be this 🙂
