Recently, HSN ran a great deal on the Too Faced chocolate bar palette. $29 shipped for the shadow palette and the full sized eyeshadow insurance!
This is my first delve into pricier eyeshadows. I've purchased pricey blushes and foundation and mascara in the past, but never shadow for some reason and I hoard palettes like it's Y2K.
I love neutrals and the consistency of the shadows in this palette are smooth and buttery. There's a little fallout but not significant and the color payoff for each shadow is satisfactory. The lasting power without the shadow insurance for me is 4 hours. I didn't see a difference with the shadow insurance - in fact I'm really not impressed with it. I prefer the shadow primer that comes in the NYC palettes, actually. With that shadow primer I easily get 10 hours of wear!
Overall, I give the palette an 8.5/10. Colors and texture are great but I don't really understand the pink or purple here. I feel those are wasted spaces and the shadow insurance is a 2/10 for me. For whatever reason, on my skin it slips off and just doesn't work. I highly recommend the palette though. IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE!
Here's a look I did using the too faced palette and wet n wild bare it all lipstick with gloss on top.
