The Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced |review + swatches|

Hello beauties :)

Today I am writing a review of my favorite eye shadow palette EVER!

It’s the famous Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and believe me – once you open it, it’s the start of one very special relationship full of love ;)

I have it for 8 months and it is still the only palette a carry with me everywhere I go, it’s my go-to palette and I can create 273643 looks with it, for any occasion. There are colors that I use more than the other ones, but in general, if you like warm colors, this is an absolute perfection…So let’s start with some basic facts and quick impressions!

Danas vam pišem recenziju moje omiljene palete sjenila IKAD!

To je poznata Too Faced Chocolate Bar paleta i vjerujte mi – jednom kad je otvorite, to je početak jedne posebne ljubavne veze ;)

Imam je 8 mjeseci i još uvijek je jedina paleta koju nonstop nosim sa sobom kamo god da idem i s njom mogu kreirati milijun raznih look-ova za bilo koju priliku. Neke nijanse koristim više nego druge, no generalno, ako volite toplije, zemljane tonove, ovo je savršenstvo…Pa krenimo s općim informacijama i brzinskim dojmovima!

PACKAGING & FIRST IMPRESSION

It comes in a paper box, well packed and very cute print with all the product info (I don’t have this part anymore) and inside you can find a palette which is in a very nice thicker plastic box with a 3D chocolate print and also a small cute tutorial book with 3 different looks which I think is really nice! The palette box has a nice big mirror inside the lid and also, shadows are protected with plastic layer with names of all shadows on it.

First imspression?  I think it’s enough to say that eye shadows are made from cocoa powder – and they smell like that! Seriously, you can’t stop once you start, it smells so good, there’s no makeup that smells better than this (at least I never found it).

Paleta dolazi u kartonskom pakiranju, dobro zaštićena, sa preslatkim printom i svim informacijama o proizvodu (ja taj dio više nemam jer sam je davno kupila), a unutra je paleta koja je u divnom plastičnom pakiranju s 3D printom čokolade i s malom knjižicom u kojoj su tutorijali za 3 različita looka što je dodatan plus za mene! Paleta na unutarnjoj strani poklopca ima veliko ogledalo, a sjenila su zaštićena plastičnom folijom na kojoj su sva imena sjenila.

Prvi dojam? Mislim da je dovoljno reći da su sjenila izrađena od kakaa- a tako i mirišu! Zaista, ne možete prestati jednom kad počnete, miriše predobro, nema makeupa za koji znam da miriše bolje od ovog!

COLORS & PIGMENTATION

Colors in this palette fit my blue eyes very well and I think that it is a great match for any eye color. It’s a warm palette, it mostly has earth tones, browns, matte and shimmery, but there are few brighter colors that combined with darker ones work so well! This palette is perfect for creating everyday looks that are not too dramatic, but colors are still bold enough so you can really go for that if you want to. Two colors are in bigger quantity because they can be used as a base shadow or even a highlighter. Pigmentation is really good, maybe 2-3 shadows are not extremely pigmented (Black Forest Truffle for example) but they still do a good job, only in bigger amount. Here are the swatches :

Nijanse u ovoj paleti idealno odgovaraju mojim plavim očima i mislim da su zapravo pun pogodak za bilokoju boju očiju. Paleta sadrži toplije, većinom zemljane tonove, smeđe nijanse, mat i shimmeraste, ali ima i nekoliko svjetlijih nijansi koje se lijepo daju kombinirati s tamnijima. Ova paleta je savršena za kreiranje dnevnih lookova koji nisu jako dramatični, ali i takav se izgled može postići bez ikakvih problema. Dvije nijanse u u većoj količini jer se mogu koristiti kao baza ili kao highlighter. Pigmentacija je jako dobra, možda dva ili tri sjenila nisu baš ekstremno pigmentirana (kao npr. Black Forest Truffle), ali su i dalje jako dobra i vidljiva, samo ih treba nanijeti u malo većoj količini. Ovo su swatchevi :

PRICE & GENERAL OPINION

I bought my Chocolate Bar in Sephora in Stockholm and the price was around 49$. It is expensive and I really thought about it for a long time, but now when I use it almost every day and I didn’t buy any eye shadow after this palette – I don’t regret it at all! I am really in love with it and even tough I have it for a long time, I still have space to experiment with colors and I love that. So, if you are searching for a palette that has beautiful and pigmented colors and will make you stop carring 55 mono eye shadows in your makeup bag and make your life easier – this is it, without any doubt!

Svoju Chocolate Bar paletu sam kupila u Sephori u Stockholmu i tada je cijena ( a i sad je) bila oko 49$. Skupa je, zbilja je i dugo sam razmišljala bih ili ne bih, ali sad kad vidim da je koristim gotovo svaki dan i da nisam kupila niti jedno sjenilo nakon palete – ni malo ne žalim za novcem! Zaljubljena sam u nju i bez obzira na to što je imam tako dugo, još uvijek imam prostora za eksperimentiranje s bojama i to m je super. Dakle, ako tražite paletu sjenila koja ima prekrasne i pigmentirane nijanse i zbog koje ćete napokon izbaciti iz torbice 55 mono sjenila i olakšati si život – to je to, bez imalo sumnje!

  1. odlična recenzija :D baš si dobro rekla da je paleta idealna za izbaciti mono sjenila :D
    veliki sam ljubitelj mono sjenila, jer upravo kod njih nalazim najposebnije nijanse, koje se mogu samostalno nositi. Ali kod ove palete je svaka boja posebna i nosiva :)
