Tried & Tested: Too Faced Chocolate Bar and Chocolate Soleil

Makeup has never been more delicious with Too Faced’s chocolate collection!

The human attraction to all things cocoa and chocolate is strong. Since centuries ago, cocoa has often been known for its soothing and antioxidant properties, as well as the potential to protect, condition, and heal skin that has been damaged by sun and wind. And then there’s the fact that the scent of cocoa powder can increase memory and brain power!

Understanding the many wonders of this natural ingredient, Too Faced founders have went forth and created a makeup range that’s bound to call to chocolate lovers – a series of makeup made from cocoa powder that aims to help protect and smooth your skin, as well as smell too good to be true!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette (RM149)

From the utterly adorable packaging to the moment you pop this baby open – everything will remind you of chocolate. Also, it’s best you prepare for a sudden chocolate craving when the scent of chocolate fills the air.

From shimmers to matte with hues of natural browns, delicate pinks and luscious plums, the eye shadow collection carries 14 smaller shades (0.03 oz in size) and two larger highlighting shades (0.10 oz). This is without doubt one hefty eye shadow palette!

We did a swatch for these antioxidant-rich cocoa-infused eye shadows. Here is how the colours appear with three layers each, and in indoor lighting.

The shades of the Chocolate Bar palette are great those who are looking for neutral colours. While all of them glide on easily, some are beautifully rich in pigments but the lighter colours are rather powdery and sheer.

Additionally, you’d be glad to know that the colours would be good for blending and that it comes with Too Faced’s signature how-to Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started.

 

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer in Medium/Deep (Approximately RM90)

This chocolaty product is made to make bronzing a more delectable activity. Deemed as one of their blockbuster product, the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil is shimmer-free and matte; making it a great tool for contouring and giving an all-over tan. And yes, this too smells like chocolate.

The swatch above was done with two layers on the left, and one layer on the right. Easy to apply and highly pigmented, the Chocolate Soleil is a medium-dark brown bronzer with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a satin finish — meaning that it is best suited for those with medium to deep skin tones, and great for neutralising reds.

In a (cocoa)nutshell, this glam-and-tan bronzer does the job if you’re looking for a bronzing powder that’s matte, deep and will leave a subtle hint of cocoa on you.

The Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Palette and Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer collections by Too Faced are now available in Sephora Stores nationwide.
