Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

This has to be one of my favorite of all time palettes!  I've seriously packed away all my other palettes and have used this one every single day since I bought it...which was about two weeks ago.   It contains 16 beautiful eyeshadows, and I love that the palette contains mainly neutrals, and even the ones that are considered "color" aren't super crazy, can't wear everyday colors.  I love that there is a nice mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadows, only 2 glitters and the glitter is fine not super chunky.  This palette is great for any type of makeup application...bridal, going grocery shopping, hanging with friends, hitting the clubs, date'll cover any occasion/event.  From now on (until something better comes along), this will probably be the only palette I take with me when I travel.  That being said, I understand the cuteness of "chocolate bar" and making the palette look like a chocolate bar, but it is a little bulky.  But really, who cares.  And the eyeshadows do smell like chocolate because they are formulated with cocoa powder, which I find a little strange and at first didn't want to purchase this palette because I didn't want my eyes smelling like chocolate...but again, I got over it because the shadows are just so gorgeous.  Who doesn't like chocolate anyway? I can't rave enough about this palette!  Like always, the pigmentation is amazing, especially with the satin eyeshadows.  The lighter mattes and glitters need a few layers to show up really well, but that's true of most lighter mattes and glitters.  Application is smooth and the shadows themselves aren't too soft either, which I've had a lot of issue with other palettes.  They're soft enough to pick up color easily, but not so soft you get a ton of fallout and excess shadow all over your palette.  And, whoever came up with the names of the individual shadows is very clever cause they all sound delish.  Anywho, here's the swatches.  This palette deserves an A+++++++ in my book!
