Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: Swatches & Review

       Hey guys! So today I have a review for you on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette for Spring 2014! The collection also comes with some new lip colors, an iphone palette, and blushes!
But for now lets stick with this palette!
      This palette contains 16 eyeshadows; 6 matte, and 10 shimmer/satin. The eyeshadows are antioxidant-rich and infused with cocoa powder just like their bronzers! The smell isn't too over powering but you can definetly get a whiff of the chocolatey goodness when you open the palette.
      It comes with a Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started! I followed these easy to use directions and the looks were beautiful.

 The packaging is super cute! Its a brown rectangluar case with a magnetic closure which is nice to travel with! There's only one problem! The inside of the palette has the plastic overlay with all the shadows names and sometimes if it gets in the way of the magnet it can stop the palette from closing. Not a deal breaker, but sometimes can be annoying.
 Anyways! The palette is shaped like a Hershey's chocolate bar! Looks so cute! I just want to eat it!

 The inside comes with a decent sized mirror, and like I said above a plastic overlay of all the shades!

Salted Caramel- brownish orange matte
Marzipan-  peachy champagne with a slightly metallic finish
Semi-sweet- medium dark brown with reddish undertones & matte finish
Strawberry Bon Bon- pale pink, matte finish, not so opaque
Candid Violet-  smokey violet with multi colored glitter- gritty- sheer- hard to blend
Amaretto- brown with redish undertones and a slight sheen

Hazelnut, creme brulee, haute chocolate, cherry cordial, champagne truffle
Hazelnut- dark brown with golden bronze, slight sheen
Creme Brulee-  darkened gold with metallic finish
Haute Chocolate  medium brown with metallic finish
Cherry Cordial- plummy brown with matte finish, bit dry
Champagne Truffle-  pinkish white with metallic finish

Final rundown- all the shadows were incredibly smooth and pigmented with some exceptions! I feel like Candid Violet could have packed a better punch and was quite disappointed with this shade! They apply and blend like a dream,  I had barely any fall out with any of the shades and they all wore well.

Let me know if you got your hands on this chocolate lovers dream and what your favorite shades are!
