I can't believe how late I am with discovering the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. As far as I'm aware, Too Faced as a brand were not readily available or stocked in UK stores until recently and to be honest, I'd never given their products much thought. Safe to say, that all changed when the Chocolate Bar palettes and the new Bon Bon Palette became some of the most hyped up products on the Internet. It's almost like you're the odd one out if you haven't got a photo of it on your Instagram feed!
I'd been trying to decide between the original Chocolate Bar Palette and the new Bon Bon Palette for weeks. I just couldn't justify buying both and although the packaging of the new Bon Bon Palette is absolutely to die for, I felt that the colours in the original Chocolate Bar Palette were more 'me'. There are a range of shimmer and matte shades, all of which are named something dessert-related, not to mention the fact that they all have a chocolatey scent and blend like an absolute dream. The packaging is quite light but the hard tin case makes it perfect for travelling - I'll definitely take it on holiday this year!
To get the best results from the eyeshadows, I decided to purchase the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer which is absolutely amazing.. I can do my make-up at 8am and my eyeshadow has not creased by night time! Having used this palette literally every day since I bought it, I feel that there is only on shade that I've not yet found a use for; Candied Violet which is a shimmery violet shade with pink flecks. Other than that, I absolutely adore the rest of the shades with my favourites being; Salted Caramel, Marzipan, Amaretto, Hazelnut and Creme Brûlée. The palette also comes with two highlighting shades; White Chocolate and Champagne Truffle, which are double the size of the other shades, if not more.

Overall, I'm completely converted to Too Faced shadows and no doubt I'll pick up another palette soon. I have my eye on a new Too Faced lipstick shade called 'Sugar Daddy' which I believe will be released in the UK this week or next. I can't wait to build up my Too Faced collection!!
