Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette Review & Swatches

Too Faced Chocolate Bar

Hello Everyone.  Moxie was kind enough to contact me for some guest reviews. I haven’t posted a written review with swatches in a long time, and was very eager to. I am Grace from cosmeticcouturier for those of you who don’t know me. I am a cruelty free and vegan vlogger.

This year has been very exciting in the world of makeup. Too Faced has caught my eye this year with their amazing spring 2014 launch inspired by none other than good old fashioned chocolate.

Shadow Insurance Candlelight: 0.17 Oz. (Metric: 5g) Color: Sheer Gold. A primer and also can be used as a sheer illuminating eye shadow.

The Too Faced lashGASM:

0.4 Fl. Oz. (12 mL) This is a full size mascara!

Color: Black

This is advertised as being a “defining and volumizing mascara…to create dramatically long lashes with intense color.

Totally agree!! The brush on the mascara “flexi-firm”, enabled me to get each individual lash coated with mascara without clumping.

There are illustrations of three possible looks to create with each row in the Shadow Bon Bons. I have based mine off of one called, “Toasty Caramel” (using row 3 colors), and also included two shadows from row 2 that I blended: Lovey Dovey and Hot Cocoa.

Thoughts About the Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons:

If you’re looking for an organic product, this is not for you. However, of course, Too Faced is cruelty free—it has been since the company began fourteen years ago! I agree with Too Faced that Shadow Bon Bons does, “make it easy to create bountiful looks. Go from sweet and sassy to subtle to dramatic with this one versatile set.” Make sure to use a primer, and you’ll find all the shadows are pigmented. The only shadow that I had a bit of fallout from was Peach Fuzz.

I like that there are three illustrated looks that you can create. I used it as a basis for the above photo. Shadow Bon Bons is a great value in that you’re not only getting twelve eye shadows, but you’re also able to sample the Shadow Insurance in Candlelight, and you receive a great, full size mascara!

Disclosure: I have nothing to disclose. I purchased Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons.

Too Faced Cosmetics: Matte Eye Shadow Collection

The Palette for today’s review, the Matte Eye Shadow Collection, is not only cruelty free, but also Vegan-friendly: there are no animal bi-products.

Too Faced Cosmetics does not test on animals.

“No way, Too Faced loves animals! Our products are totally cruelty-free.”
Also, Too Faced does not sell their products in China, which by law, requires animal testing.

I’m not sure what is more amazing. The fact that the Founders of Too Faced,  and Jeremy Johnson, started their company only 14 years ago and are now a global company; or, that despite unlike other companies that no longer have cruelty free status, Too Faced has stayed true to their vision and remained cruelty free! Thank you, Too Faced, for caring about your customers, and the welfare of animals!

Co-Founders of Too Faced Cosmetics:
Jerrod is the Creative Director, and Jeremy takes care of Sales and Operations (CEO). The goal is to “offer foolproof makeup that allows real women to become as gorgeous as they dared to dream.”

Facebook  Twitter

The Matte Eye Shadow Collection was first available exclusively at Sephora in the Fall of 2011. Now you can find this, and other Too Faced  “Glamorous Goodies all over the world.”

Too Faced Cosmetics believes that “the modern way to wear matte is to keep it soft, sexy and sophisticated.”

 

Some specifics:

The three large eye shadows are each 0.07 ounces.

The six small eye shadows are each 0.03 ounces.

(Metric: three large eye shadows are each 2 g ; six small eye shadows are each 0.9 g).

Price: $36 ($75 value)

Opening and closing the Palette is easy with a magnetic closure:

(A little piece of maroon-colored fabric is used to pull open the magnetic closure on the Palette). Click to enlarge.                    

There are three cards with directions for creating different looks with the shadows: Day, Classic and Fashion

 

 

 

Tufted Suede: caramel

Chinchilla: warm brown

Coffee Bean: the way I like my coffee- (dark, no cream, thanks!)

Velveteen Bunny : vanilla

Pebbles: stone grey

London Fog: navy

Fresh Linen: light pink

Vintage Violet: violet (gorgeous! and a very different violet from any of the eye shadows that I currently own). Not quite sure how to describe the violet color! This is my favorite color!!

Midnight: soft black

I followed the instruction card to create a Fashion Eye:

 

Lots to love about the Matte Eye Shadow Collection.  It has both cool and warm tones. The shadows applied very easily, and were blendable. There was no fall out from the shadows; they didn’t crease, nor did they fade at the end of the day. *Note, I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer. There are instructions (How-to Cards) in both English, and on the opposite side, French. Vegan-friendly! 

Any cons?  The only thing that I could think of is that you might not want an all matte palette. However, my opinion is that, while it’s great to have a variety of textures in a palette, it’s also convenient to have all matte in one place. I’m glad that I purchased the Matte Eye Shadow Collection, and I would highly recommend it!
Disclosure: I purchased the Palette. I have nothing to disclose. All links are for your convenience only.
