I was lucky enough to receive as a gift from my parents the beautiful Chocolate Gold Palette from Too Faced. The box it comes in is lovely!
And, of course because it’s Too Faced, the packaging is to die for!!! So cute and I love the tins they put their palettes in.
This palette is also great from a design point of view because they have included a much larger mirror than they usually do in their palettes, a feature that is very useful. When I first saw this palette I knew I really liked it! However, this might not be the same for everyone as the palette only has four matte shades. I always buy for glitter shades rather than matte though so this didn’t really bother me. The palette has a nice range of colours but is still largely warm toned (I love that they’ve included a couple of cool toned colours too) and looks like this (note the massive mirror),
The glitters are also the best I think too faced has ever done. They are stunning, absolutely stunning. If you get a chance definitely swatch them 🤤 I think they must have changed their formula because normally their glitter shades are very soft and buttery but these are opposite which gives a more striking colour pay off I’ve found. The shades also wear really well – I’ve worn them for a couple of days now and they haven’t creased on my eyelid which is a huge thumbs up from me. The mattes are also nice, it has a matte black (YES OH YES), they are a little stiff but nothing that a good bit of blending won’t solve. It is a little annoying though that I don’t think I could travel with this palette alone as I hate using glitter in my crease and there aren’t enough mattes to work with all the colours in the palette.
utely love this palette! The glitters are astonishing, I honestly can't think of any glitters I own that I prefer for these. If you're thinking about buying this palette, I'd say if you don't mind the lack of mattes and are a bit of a glitter fan then you should definitely add it to your collection! If you like your matte shades though or are looking for an all round palette this wouldn't be a good first choice (too many glitters and bold shades in my opinion for an all round palette). Just remember the colours are quite bold too! So I hope you find these helpful! Let me know if you have any questions or what you think of the palette! Hope you're having the best day.
Love, Kirsty ox
