Who likes White Chocolate? No, I’m not on about a Milky Bar … I’m on about Too Faced’s newest palette. The Too Faced White Chocolate Bar is being released on 29th November and I’ve been lucky enough to get my paws on it early. I love the Chocolate Bar range so I was very excited to try this one out.
Indulge in the softer, sexy side of chocolate. Treat yourself to a confection of 16 cocoa powder-infused matte and shimmer shades that include creamy nudes, powdered sugar pastels, and a pop of black sugar to give you a decadent experience like no other – that smells like a white chocolate dream.
The packaging of the Too Faced White Chocolate Bar is in keeping with the other chocolate palettes. The metal casing is ridged like a bar of chocolate with Too Faced written in hot pink and the name of the palette in metallic gold. Inside the palette, there is a large mirror on top of a pink and white candy stripe pattern.
As with the other palettes, there are 3 rows of shades – 14 of the shades are in smaller pans, whilst the two base colours have a larger pan. Delicately sweet chocolate aromas hit you as soon as you open up the palette.
This palette is a pastel lover’s dream. As well as some richer neutral shades, the overall feel of the palette is a sugary, pastel playground of fun. Now these shades aren’t bright or in your face and this shows in the swatches you’re about to see. The pigmentation isn’t intense and you will need to build up the shades if you want a more intense look. At the end of the day, this is a predominantly pastel palette that is subtle and soft. If you’re expecting some crazily hued bright palette, then you will be disappointed. However, if you want something that’s very sweet and pretty, then you’re going to like this.
All of my swatches are one swipe swatches with no primer underneath.

IS THE WHITE CHOCOLATE BAR WORTH IT?
For me, this is a very pretty palette. However, I can see it being one that divides opinion. It isn’t Too Faced’s most wearable palette and I think some people will find it to be too subtle. Personally I like it but it seems to be more of a spring palette – I’m not sure how much use it will get in the winter months. I do think die-hard Too Faced fans will love it, but, as pretty as it is, it doesn’t compare to the original Chocolate Bar.
THE TOO FACED WHITE CHOCOLATE BAR PALETTE WILL BE LAUNCHED ON BLACK FRIDAY (NOVEMBER 29TH). WILL YOU BE BUYING IT?
