When it comes to present-buying, I can, admittedly, take it quite seriously. I like to make sure that my gifts are something that the recipient wants, but that they’re also something a bit fun and different. So, if you’re in the market for a fun stocking-stuffer or secret Santa gift, you can’t get much better than Too Faced’s Matte Chocolate Chip Palette.
First off, I know we’re not meant to judge a book by it’s cover, but this palette is the cutest! It’s dinky, it looks like a chocolate bar, and it smells like cocoa powder. It’s also a fab collection of colours, which should suit most skin tones, and work with palettes currently in your stash.
For such a small palette, the colours are incredibly well thought out. There are a mix of warm-toned neutral browns, with some pinks, a blue and a khaki in there too.
On a daily basis, I’ve been sticking mostly to the left side of the palette. The mix of browns and taupes is perfect for a neutral, everyday makeup looks. All of the shadows in the palette are buttery soft, with a great colour payoff. They do throw up a bit of fall out, but they’re so easy to blend that it’s not a big deal.
The right hand side of the palette has the more dramatic shades in the palette. I tend to smudge in the darker shadows for a subtle liner. I also love the light pinky-purple shade over the lid, with a taupe blended into the crease. It’s a fun update to my regular neutral choices.
It’s not just a great gift though – I’ve been using it on a nearly daily basis. The shadows are so pigmented, and they last all day, so it’s a perfect choice if you’re looking add a little cuteness into your regime!
