Debenhams Exclusive: Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette
Could have been better, but OK.
Nice selection of colours, some really pretty and unique ones to try. However, I was really disappointed with the staying power, even in comparison to other Too Faced eye shadow pallets (I use UD primer so it's been given a fair trial). You do get a lot of product. I can't say I was blown away but the smell, but it was nicer than no scent. The casing is robust, but looks and feels cheap, the eye shadow names aren't printed on the case, they are on those awful clear plastic sheets which is annoying. This purchase was a bit of a naughty treat for me, had I bought it as an every day staple I would have been disappointed, but it's worth a play and could make some really pretty looks, just don't expect them to last.
Beautiful natural colours!
I bought this one after watching a beauty video and knew I had to get it. First of all.. It really just smells amazing! Like actual chocolate! The colours are so beautiful golds, mattes, shimmers, highlight shades. So impressed by how long they stay on for. I'm currently using the palette every day and still making different looks. Very pressed!
Is it worth the money?
No. I have to be honest, although I really wanted to like this palette, it's not at all worth the money. Sure enough, it's a pretty good gimmick; the smell of chocolate when opening an eyeshadow palette is an unusual and cool feature. However, once you get past that...there's nothing else left to enjoy. The poorly-pigmented, powdery shadows are rubbish. Maybe one or two of the shadows are pigmented and blend quite well but almost all of them are really poor quality. It's a shame because the colours are beautiful. The packaging is very nice too. Definitely avoid this palette if you're on a budget, as there are better and cheaper eyeshadow palettes out there.
This pallette is amazing. Seriously. Its jam-packed with essential neutrals nestled amond rich chocolatey shades. You can create so many looks AND!!!!!! It smells of hot-chocolate mix. Fab.
The colour payoff is excellent and the shadows are as rich and buttery as ever. So soft yet pigmented. There is a great ratio of shimmer/glitter/matte shadows.
The packaging is durable and just GORGEOUS!
Seriously, i cant praise it enough. Well done too faced!!!
Beautiful palette of colours. Nice case, easy to use, very blend able.
My beauty product of the year
This is the best eye shadow pallet i have ever bought. I absolutely love Too Faced products and knew this wouldn't let me down. Having green eyes the shades in this pallet are perfect for me. Every colour is gorgeous, either on its own or used as a combination. The smell is DEVINE! Throughout the day I get wafts of delicious cocoa, yum! This eye shadow works even better with the eye shadow primer - lasts all day with no creasing. The packaging is gorgeous too as with all Too Faced products. Can not recommend this enought - you will not be disappointed!
From the box the palette somes in to the gorgeous chocolate bar shaped tin this whole concept is well thought out and gorgeous. The tin is strong and i found the magnet to be quite strong on mine, it comes with a little book of looks to try out as Too Faced always features with their palettes - a lovely feature I think.
The names of the shades are on a plastic overlay sheet but i stuck mine into the lid with some blu-tac as i never use the mirrors in the lids of palettes, this way i have the names of the shades on hand and no slippery little sheets falling out whenever I open it.
I love the smell of the shadows, such a strong sweet cocoa smell that really invites you in.... the shades are gorgeous, i love the large ivory matte and champagne shimmer - its good to have these large as these are my most used shades. There is a lovely mix of satin and shimmery shades, with delicious names and gorgeous colour payoff. The only one i found was poor in colour was Candied Violet which is quite powdery and streaky and sheer - i think with a damp brush and some primer it could be made to work though. What i love is that there are shades here that i do not have anywhere else - though most of them are warm toned and i love the additions of the black forest, cherry and strawberry colours - just adds that something different and the pink is amazing on the inner eye corner.
Overall this is a lovely addition to anyones collection, nice variety of shades and so buttery, soft and pigmented - i used it today and i am in love, milk chocolate in the crease is gorgeous!! and i love salted caramel on the lid, plus it looks gorgeous on your dressing table xx
Other great mentions if you love nudes and cant get enough are Smashbox full exposure palette - lovely mix of mattes and shimmers and The Balm Nude'tude full of amazingly pigmented shadows and the packaging is gorgeous.
Great versatile palette
I love this palette! Although it is quite bit of money to spend on 1 item, it is very good value. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and a nice texture-not overly powdery like some can be. I imagine they will last me a long time. It is very versatile too-great for daytime nd evening because of the range of colours-so it would be great for travelling with because you would have all the eyeshadows you needed in 1 palette. And bonus it smells like cocoa!
