Too Faced is really working hard to change their reputation! Recently, Too Faced palettes have been called everything but their cute, punny names. I had a hunch that Too Faced was itching to improve their quality and reputation with the Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette. I was right! The new Chocolate Gold Collection is what we’ve been waiting for, Too Faced! Products that are both cute and functional.
The Chocolate Gold Collection is Delectably Delicious!
Too Faced is known for their cute and sometimes over the top packaging. I love that Too Face got sassy and creative with Chocolate Gold Collection, though. Because it’s so beautiful! Everything is trimmed in gold and some pieces even smell like chocolate. Like the bronzer and the eyeshadow palette. The entire collection is beautiful and well thought out. For the most part. There could have been some extras thrown in for deeper skin tones.
Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer
Take the stunning Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer, for instance. It’s a beautiful warm golden bronze with fine golden shimmer. It makes for one beautiful luminous bronzer on fair to medium skin. But it falls a bit flat as a subtle highlighter for deeper complexions. I can still pull off the Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer. However, it’s quite subtle. Serving as a nice everyday highlighter. Or something a little more decent if you pile it on. I would have loved to see Too Faced whip up a Dark Chocolate version for this collection!
Melted Gold is for the Gold Addicts
“I love gooooooold!” That’s exactly how I felt when I tried on Melted Gold for the first time. This lip gloss is no joke! I was expecting the Melted Gold Lip Gloss to be all cute and sheer with some gold shimmer and lots of shine. Nah, sis. It’s completely the other way around. Melted Gold is straight up, “BAM!” in your face kind of glitter with just a little bit of a clear base. I could barely see my natural lip color under this gloss. It’s pigmented and it’s thick. I love glitter as much as the next girl but I found Melted Gold to be a little too extra for my tastes on its own. I did like it with a lip liner and another lip gloss on top to tone it down a bit.
This Stuff is Pure Gold!
Everyone somehow managed to overlook the tiny, yet powerful pigment in this collection. The Pure Gold Loose Glitter is a stunning bright yellow gold glitter that’s like Fenty Beauty’s Trophy Wife in loose powder. So freaking beautiful! The beauty about Pure Gold is that you can wear it anyway you like. You can dab a little on the lips and top it off with a gloss to dupe Melted Gold. Or you can pat it on your eyes and cheeks for maximum glow. You can even mix it into your moisturizer (body too!), primer or foundation for a killer golden glow. Besides the palette, the Pure Gold Loose Pigment is the best part of the collection!
Is the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Collection brown girl friendly?
Yes! Everything except the bronzer is a go for chocolate girls. That’s better left for more my pale sisters. But the Melted Gold Lip Gloss, Pure Gold Pigment and Chocolate Gold Palette are all fair game dark skin divas! You can find the entire collection at both Sephora and Ulta.
