Is it too soon?? Too Faced is launching another chocolate themed palette (check out the White Chocolate Palette we recently covered if you missed it!). The newest installment in the chocolate saga is the Chocolate Gold Bar Palette! It’s launching on the Too Faced website tomorrow, Tuesday, 11.28! Included are 16 shades ranging from creamy mattes to metallic shades infused with real gold! It will initially launch on Too Faced’s own website for $49 and then will be available at Ulta on December 3rd and, lastly, Sephora on December 11th! You know why that is especially perfect?! If you need to lock in your points before the year ends, here is your chance!
I think I still feel the same way as I did when writing about the White Chocolate palette – it’s just so ehhh. I truly feel as though the chocolate train has reached the station. They’re just starting to lose their momentum, you know?? That’s especially easy to do when launching TWO of these types of palettes back to back! I just don’t see a flow with the shade selection here… there is a cluster with a ton of pops of color and then another cluster with a bunch of very soft shades (these are reallyyyyy pretty!) but I don’t see how they fit together. Too Faced claims their is their “sexiest palette yet.”Hmmm. The shades are created to be super soft & velvety but with tons of pigmentation (which sounds AMAZING) and, per usual, the formula is infused with cocoa powder! Most of the shades, however, are made to be really metallic and shimmery so be aware! It looks like there are only maybeeeeee two matte shades?? It’s hard to tell. But about that – what is with the nearly ALL shimmer palettes that are all of the sudden trendy?? Can that trend go away to be replaced with the traditional, balanced palettes we all know and love? Just let me know.
