I have been loving my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette so much that I decided to challenge myself to create five different looks using it, which I then posted to Instagram. I am now collating all the looks here in case you missed them, much like I did with my Naked 3 palette a few weeks back. If you didn’t want the Chocolate Bar palette before, you may change your mind by the end of this post. You have been warned.
I began by using a large fluffy brush to dust ‘White Chocolate’, a matte cream colour all over the lid and up to the brow as a base. I then went in with ‘Milk Chocolate’, a matte taupe, on a Mac 217 blending brush and carved out my crease, buffing it out quite high. Next I used ‘Semi-Sweet’, a matte midtone brown, on the same brush to define the crease even more, although I didn’t blend it out as high. Underneath the eye and in the very outer corner of my eye, I buffed ‘Triple Fudge’, a very dark matte brown. I then used a flat brush to press ‘Marzipan’, a light pearlescent peach all over the lid. To intensify the outer corner even more, I added ‘Hazelnut’, a brown with a gold sheen and to highlight the inner corner, I applied ‘Champagne Truffle’, a pink-toned white shimmery shade.
To finish off the look, I applied Benefit’s Automatic Eyeliner Duo in ‘Call Me Nutty’ to both my top and bottom waterline. I then used Physician Formula’s Eye Booster in ‘Deep Brown’ along my upper lash line, creating a flick on the end.
For my cheeks, I used Tarte’s Blush in ‘Doll Face’ which is a gorgeous soft pink and I applied Revlon’s ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in ‘135 Provocateur’ on my lips.
This time on the lid I opted for that shimmery ‘Champagne Truffle’ colour to really brighten the eye area. I also built this up in the inner corner for a wide-eyed effect and added a touch under the brow as a highlight. This is very pigmented and really intense so I buffed under my brow with my finger to tone it down a bit. On the outer section of my lid, I pressed ‘Amaretto’, a gorgeous pearlescent burgundy-brown. Then I swept ‘Cherry Cordial’, a matte burgundy with miniscule glitter particles through my crease. I used ‘Strawberry Bon Bon’, a matte pastel baby pink around the edge of this to further blend it out. Finally I added ‘Black Forest Truffle’ underneath the eye. This is a burgundy chock full of chunky glitter particles.
I then went in with my Inglot Gel Liner in ’77 Matte Black’ on my upper waterline, flicking it out and applying it to both my upper and lower waterlines for a really intense look. On the cheeks, I opted for my Nars Blush in ‘Torrid’, a gorgeous peachy shade and on my lips I used my Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in ‘Unapologetic’, a bright, unrelenting coral pink shade.
I began with a wash of ‘Creme Brulee’, a pale gold, all over the lid and then defined the crease using ‘Salted Caramel’, a matte light burnt orange. I used that same colour underneath the eye and buffed it down quite far for a sort of grungey look. I then used ‘Haute Chocolate’, a pearlescent brown with gold sheen to really deepen the outer corner of the eye and add some intensity. I kept it simple so I finished with ‘White Chocolate’, that matte creamy shade under the brow as a highlight.
I finished up with IsaDora Twist Up Metallic Eye Pen in ‘Dark Brown’ along the top and bottom waterlines. I then used Physician’s Formula Eye Booster in ‘Deep Brown’ along the upper lash line again. On the cheeks I used Catrice’s Defining Blush in ‘Rosewood Forest’ for a really soft cheek that wouldn’t compete with Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balm in ‘Showy’ on the lips.
I went for a matte lid using ‘White Chocolate’. I then used that pastel matte pink ‘Strawberry Bon Bon’ in the crease. This colour has very little pigmentation but I built it up as best I could. I then defined the crease a little more with ‘Gilded Ganache’, a cool toned brown with gold glitter. I also used this underneath the eye and finished up with ‘Champagne Truffle’ under the brow and on the inner corner to add a little something extra.
I added a slick of Inglot’s Gel Liner to my upper lash line and then, did something I never do, opted for a cream shade on the waterline – I chose Collection’s Work The Color Shadow Pencil in ‘Vanilla Sky’. I usually don’t find cream shades last long enough on the waterline and I have quite pink waterlines naturally so I can look very tired however I was really impressed with the longetivity of this. On my cheeks I opted for Benefit’s Thrrrob which is a very light pink with shimmer and I finished up with Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color in ‘Stoplight Red’.
After collating all of these looks for a post, I realised how neutral they all were so for my final day, I decided to do a dark eye and nude lip, in contrast to all of the others. I began with a big fluffy brush and ‘White Chocolate’ as a base all over the lid from lashes to brow. I then went in with ‘Hazelnut’, that brown with a gold sheen and shimmer, all over the lid. I applied ‘Gilded Ganache’, a dark golden-brown to the crease, the outer corner and underneath the eye. I used ‘Milk Chocolate’, the matte taupe, to blend out the edges and forwent gel liner (I know, right?!), instead, drawing ‘Triple Fudge’, the darkest matte brown along my upper lash line.
I finished the look with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in ‘Twice Baked’, a brown with gold shimmer (can you see a theme?) along both my upper and lower waterlines. I then buffed No7 Blush Tint Powder on to the cheeks and used my Wet n Wild Megalast Lip Color in ‘Bare It All’ on my lips.
Which is your favourite look? And more importantly, have I convinced you to buy the palette yet?
