Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette
The pack as well as the palette is awesome: the palette is made of plastic and it looks like a chocolate bar, covered with gold. It closes safely with a click. So be sure that it’ll never pop open itself. Unlike many eyeshadow palettes by Too Faced, this one has a plastic compact and not metallic. By the way, the quality of the product is fantastic.
The eyeshadows themselves are sweet scented, but the smell is really subtle and it won’t ever irritate you.
I’m happy that the brand doesn’t test its products on animals and that the ingredients lists are free from gluten and parabens.
Ingredients and product info:
There are 16 shades in the palette: 4 are matte for shaping my eyes and the other 12 are shimmer color accents for any makeup look.
Two refill pans here are significantly bigger than the others, because they are the main shades in the palette. I apply all the shimmer shades with a damp brush or dab them over a cream eyeshadows for better coverage and intensity of the colors. All the shimmers are pretty weird texture-wise: they are a tad creamy to the touch, some kind of a hybrid of cream and powder eyeshadows. The texture is easy to apply and blend out all the shades.
Money bags - it’s a beautiful green color which is gray-based. This is why it looks dark gray once I blend it out. It doesn’t fall out on my cheeks when I apply it. It looks stunning over cream eyeshadows or if I apply it with a damp brush.
Chocolate gold - gorgeous and beautiful golden color. The refill is big for the reason. I always have a desire to use this very color.
Love & Cocoa - red-bronze shade. I like this shade for blending the most out of all the other colors from the palette. It falls out a little when I apply it over my lids.
Old Money - copper shade
New Money - bright fuchsia shade. It doesn't fall out and in general applies smoothly.
Holla For a Dolla - chaki shade, which is a tad dusty during application.
Gold Dipped - golden-beige color.
Livin' Lavish - dark-purple shade. As many other dark-toned colors in the palette, this one falls out a little during application, so make sure to apply some powder over your cheeks or cover them with cotton rounds. This shade works nicely with the New Money and Money Bags colors.
Rich girl - light silver shade, which will work fantastic for the inner corners of the eyes for the the daytime makeup.
Cocoa Truffle - dark-brown matte shade, it’s nice to darken the crease. It has beautiful blending. It doesn’t dust or fall out.
Decadent - matte black color. I’m not actually satisfied with the quality of this color: it’s less pigmented and always applies worse than all the other matte shades.
Famous - bronzy golden color. It’s a tad darker than the Gold Dipped.
Classy & Sassy - bronze shade, which is fairer than the Love & Cocoa.
So Boujee - light-brown matte shade for the blending and for the crease. It’s a wonderful color, that gives beautiful and good quality blending.
Drippin’ Diamonds - silver shade.
Rollin’ in Dough - light beige matte shade. I use it to set my eyeshadow primer.
There were also instructions on how to do three makeup looks included.
I use the shades Rollin' in Dough, So Boujee and Cocoa Truffle to define my eyes. Then I applied the Chocolate Gold over my mobile and lower lids and the Love & Cocoa color was used to blend out the shades on my lower lids. I applied the Rich Girl color to the inner corners of my eyes..
My makeup #2
I shaped my eyes with the Rollin’ in Dough, So Boujee and Cocoa Truffle. The Livin’ Lavish is applied to the lower lids. I also decided to add some New Money color to the lower lids as well. And the Drippin’ Diamonds is in the center of the lids. The Rich Girl is in the inner corners. I think I overdid it, because I accidentally used a wet brush to apply it. Now I’m shining bright like a diamond. The Decadent color is also used along my lash line here.
My makeup #3
I shaped my eyes with the matte shade from the palette. The shade Money Bag is applied over a cream eyeshadow, New Money is in the crease and the Chocolate Gold is in the inner corners. Instead of a black color I used a liquid eyeliner.
And here are some of my makeup looks:
Here the matte New Money and Livin’ Lavish shades were used to shape my eyes. Then I applied some Stilla eyeshadows over the pink color.
My makeup #5
I shaped my eyes with the matte shades. Hoola For a Dolla is applied over the cream eyeshadows (you can see how dusty it is on my cheek). I also blended the shades Famous and Old Money in the crease.
My makeup #7
The shaping is done with the matte shades. Over the cream eyeshadows I used the shades Classy & Sassy and New Money. The color Love & Cocoa is blended out in the crease. Even though I love bright and eye catching makeup, I still love this gentle-looking makeup as well. In life it looks more pink-toned, rather than on camera.
My makeup #7
As usual, the matte shades are used to shape my eyes. The Old Money color is on my mobile lid, the blending is done with the Love & Cocoa and the Famous shades. And the inner corners are done with the Chocolate Gold.
I really appreciate that this palette will suffice to do daytime as well as evening makeup looks. The quality of shimmers is on fleek, they are all bright, pliant and really beautiful.
The weight of small refill pans is 0.85g, the big are 2g, which means that the products weigh 15.9g all in all. The price of the palette is $49.00 and I wouldn’t say that it’s pricey for the quality.
For example, the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadows cost the same, though they only have 5.2g of the products in total.
So, this Too Faced eyeshadow palette has an excellent price/quality correlation. From me, I can add that it’s the best eyeshadow palette in my collection.
