Too Faced has just released a few new mini palettes for Spring ’17, the Chocolate Chip Palette, and the White Chocolate Chip Palette. The Chocolate Chip palette was available on the Too Faced website, but is an all matte palette, so I passed on that one. As soon as I saw that this White Chocolate Chip palette was released early at Sephora for VIB rouge, I knew I had to get it. It is just beautiful.
Now, this palette is considerably cheaper than the regular Chocolate Palettes, which retail for $49…so I knew this palette would be smaller…but I wasn’t really expecting it to be smaller than my cell phone.
Immediately upon opening the package, I gasped. This looks like a little girl’s play makeup. The case is plastic, and the shadows inside are the size of a fingernail. TINY. I really couldn’t believe how small this was.
Even so, the colors do look very pretty, so I was willing to overlook the size!
The names of the shadows are printed right on the back of the palette. They are all named after desserts, which I love, and the shadows do have the same cocoa smell as the other palettes.
After both swatching and applying to my eyes, I found these shades to be very chalky, unpigmented, and just very patchy. This is very disappointing and unlike anything else I’ve tried from Too Faced. The colors are all very light, most didn’t even show up on me, and I have very light skin.
I am seriously considering putting this palette in my 5 year old daughter’s stocking. At least she would be happy with it!
This was a fail you guys. I’m really disappointed in the quality here. I could have spent $6 on a Wet N Wild palette from the drugstore and would have been happier.
If you are thinking of purchasing this palette, I would say pass on it and go for one of the other awesome palettes they have to offer.
Thanks for reading 🙂
