Too Faced White Chocolate Chip palette review

Too Faced White Chocolate Chip palette review and swatches
Pass the macarons! I couldn't be more excited to review this palette, despite having mixed reviews in the beauty world. I was hooked, instantly: the Chocolate Chip palettes are such adorable additions to the
 Chocolate palette range. The light, ethereal pastels and nudes captured my heart and with free international shipping on the cards, I discarded the popular Peach and Peanut Butter Jelly palettes in favour of my one true food love, White Chocolate won't mention jelly filled marshmallows.

Those who know me know I'm a sucker for novelty cosmetics ie everything Too Faced. On opening this baby, you realise how tiny this palette is, about 3/4 the size of an iphone! It fits snugly in to your pocket/makeup bag, so is perfect for taking on the go, but I can see why some may hold complaint - the little pans are so tiny, it's difficult to get a brush in. This doesn't bother me too much and I find it so cute. I have a huge love of miniatures and find the chocolate chip concept so adorable!

Like the other palettes in the Chocolate range, the packaging is shaped like a chocolate bar. It's so gorgeous, with little gold adornments and I can't bring myself to throw the outer box away. The palette itself features 11 dreamy pastel shades: Ambrosia, Black Sugar, Cookie Dough, Cake Batter, Indulge, Pearl Candy, Guilt Free, Raspberry Rose, Glaze, Exotica and Sugared Raisin. They all sound so delicious!

The shades themselves are so delicate and pretty. It will be a disappointment to those looking to create dramatic looks, with bright pops of colour, but perfect for creating magical, ethereal looks with gentle pops of colour and pearlescent shimmer. I find the selection of shades so unique and have already a few favourites - Cookie Dough is perfect for the lid crease, especially for those with pale skin, who find darker shades a bit heavy and tend to hollow out the eyes. Indulge, too, is so beautiful and wearable!

I do love the selection of shimmers but find that shades such as Indulge, Sugared Raisin and Pearl Candy have a good deal of fall out and are rather messy, so much that the mirror is often covered with a layer of powder. The glitter is quite chunky, compared to shimmers in the other Too Faced palettes, but still feel super soft in the pan. The pop of black, Black Sugar, is an interesting addition juxtaposed with the creamy shades and I enjoy the contrast in the pan, however, does not sit so well with light shades on the skin.

It's a little awkward and I'm not sure where to put it! It's definitely best to keep looks simple with this palette, or risk piling on too much shimmer! I love the fact that it smells heavenly, just like the other Chocolate palettes in the range. It smells like chocolate, but perhaps even a little sweeter like white chocolate - or am I imagining it? The palette also comes with a full sized mirror on the inside of the lid, which is really useful - I am so grateful for it on the go.

Here is a look I created using the White Chocolate Chip palette - please ignore my grumpy, concentrated face haha! So tricky trying to capture hand mirror snaps without getting camera lens in haha Here I am wearing all Too Faced, shades Cookie Dough and Indulge from this palette, Three Way Eyeliner and the Gingerbread bronzer from the LE Gingerbread palette on my cheeks (this is amazing!)

Black Sugar is smoky dark grey with some glitter, Glaze a barely there chalky matte white, Ambrosia a light matte tan, Exotica is a metallic fawn-beige with slight shimmer, Pearl Candy a pretty, frosted, very shimmery white, Raspberry Rose a candy pink with fine gold shimmer, Indulge is a shimmery metallic silver-grey, Guilt Free a lovely matte grey taupe, Cake Batter is a light matte fawn, Cookie Dough a darker, slightly cooler toned Cake Batter and Sugared Raisin is a metallic, shimmery violet.

I can understand the mixed reviews on this palette. It's not quite as impressive as the larger Too Faced palettes in quality and the size of this makes me question its price. For me, it's so worth it! I love alternating between the shades and creating delicate, whimsical looks like on my Pinterest here. If you love creating natural looks using soft hues, you will fall hard for this palette! What do you think?

  4. I've never actually had a Too Faced palette but this looks so cute and love the dreamy colours, I'm a bit of a novice at eyeshadow so these light but dreamt colours are definitely something I'll be looking in to!

  5. I'm not the biggest fan of Too Faced eyeshadows but I can't get enough of the packaging and have to admit this is beyond adorable. I love the shades included and the look you made with them, stunning.

  6. It's so pretty but fall out does put me off... I think I'll save up and complete my collection of the main chocolate palettes before I think about getting this...

  8. Too Faced always make the prettiest packaging! But the glitter does look super chunky here, not the easier to use and probably not the most long-lasting as well, unfortunately! The shades are really pretty though. That photo with the hand mirror is gorgeous, it was worth the effort haha!

  9. I've heard so many mixed opinions on this palette, but it looks so cute! It's a shame that the pans are that small you struggle to get your brush in, but it sounds like you can still make it work which is good! x

  23. It is tiny, which would be perfect for travel (just as any miniature thing is- tbh) haha. I didn't even realize they had a White Chocolate palette?! Not something I would really purchase, as the colours are a little too light for me :)

  24. I don't feel impressed with this palette, and I usually love Too Faced Palettes. Plus, I feel like the shades are too light for my skin tone.
