Holy great deal Batman! The Too Faced Better Than Chocolate Natural Beauty Essentials is available for one day only at the special price of $49 with free shipping (you can even break down the cost using HSN Flex pay of $16.33 over the course of three payments) and it includes three full size Too Faced products, one deluxe size sample, plus a one year subscription to Glamour Magazine!


  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection
  • How to Get the Look Instructions and Guide
  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (Full Size)
  • Deluxe Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer (.17 oz)
  • Too Faced La Creme Lip Cream in Nude Beach (Full Size)
  • Cocoa Powder Foundation Sample (one time use in Light Medium)
  • 1-year Glamour Magazine Subscription

Purchased just the eyeshadow palette, mascara, and La Creme Lipstick alone would set you back $94 so this is a fabulous deal!

The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (peek my full review and swatches) comes in the new slimmer tin compact which is shaped like a chocolate bar. The shadows are infused with cocoa powder giving them a delicious, decadent chocolate fragrance. You get 14 shades alone with a how to guide to create three different looks using your palette. As you know from my prior review of this palette, this is a great selection of lovely nude, natural colors with a soft, velvety formula that blends easily onto lids to create some beautiful natural looks! I’m also terribly happy about the addition of a full size La Creme Lip Cream in this value set as it’s one of my favorite formulas with a soft, creamy consistency and a light, lemon-y flavor and fragrance (See my full review and swatches of the La Creme formula).

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    A very cute set and what a steal! Too bad I own all these goodies already!!!

  • Maritza

    When i saw this last night on instagram I ran to the website, I have chocolate bar but this would have been an awesome gift for my sister, sadly they do not ship to Canada 🙁

  • Michelle

    I’m torn between this palette (now that this is a STEAL), and the Naked2 palette. I already own Naked 3. Which one between this set and the Naked2 do you recommend, since I don’t need both?

    • Kimmwc03

      I, personally, do not think that Naked 2 is much like this palette at all. I bought Naked 2 because I love taupe shadows.

      • Michelle

        Thanks! I already have the Naked3, and was literally going this weekend to purchase Naked2, just for a few more options. I’ve heard great things about the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, but financially can’t purchase both the Chocolate Bar palette and the Naked2 palette right now. Was trying to decide which one of the two I’d be better off purchasing.

  • makeupwithaheart

    Wahh,thanks for the heads up Muse! I’ve been wanting to try this palette but couldn’t justify it since I have so many neutral palettes 😅

  • Becky

    Is yours Naked Dolly or Nude Beach? I swear something said naked dolly when I looked last night but now it’s Nude Beach. I’m cool toned and don’t think I could pull of nude beach… But 3 payments… What to do!

  • Lauren

    Great set! I own everything in it, right down to the lipstick in that exact shade. I would have jumped on this if it included the Semi-Sweet palette. I love the mascara and I would have given my mom the eyeshadow primer. I would have kept the lipstick as a backup.

  • Sadra

    Muse, would it be possible to not have the commercials automatically play on the web site? I often sneak peaks at work (don’t judge!) and it’s a dead give away when the Mucinex commercial starts playing from my computer. This is the first time that it’s happened so maybe you’ve changed some settings?

    • Isabella Muse

      i don’t change settings on ads sadra, I actually have no control over them. I’ll tell my ad network and see if they can block these 🙂 Sorry about that!

  • Jess

    Thanks for the share! I made a quick purchase of this. I’ve been thinking about getting a full size la creme Naked Dolly but I think I will like the Nude Beach just the same (if not more). Plus I needed more of their eye primer so the value is definitely there for me! Can’t wait to explore the palette!

    • Isabella Muse

      happy to hear it jess! Nude Peach seems a little more pink and less beige than Naked Dolly imho! and more wearable so I think you’ll like!

  • Marina

    After months and months of the Chocolate Bar palette being referenced in every other YouTube neutral eye tutorial and resisting to purchase it, this post has pushed me over the edge. I’m finally getting m’self chocolate-smelling shadows, and I look forward to rubbing them on my eyes. Thanks for the post, Muse!

  • Katherine T.

    Wow, what a great deal! I would grab it if I didn’t have so many neutral shadows already

  • Farrah

    Hi! I’m new to the world of eyeshadow palette, as I’ve just recently bought the Naked 1 palette and LOVE IT!
    I’ve noticed a lot of comparisons (and contrasts) between the Naked 2 and Naked 3 palettes vs the Chocolate Bar palette but none to the Naked 1 vs the CB palette!

    What are your thoughts? Is it worth the buy if I already have the Naked 1..?

  • mindy

    hey Musekin, just gotta say those eye colors and lip on you are perfectly beautiful!!!

  • QueenRhiannon

    Thank you, Muse! I’ve been a longtime reader, but this is my first time commenting. You posted this on my birthday (January 29) and i think it’s the perfect gift for myself! I love steals and I can’t believe everything that comes with this. Like someone mentioned above, thank you so much for the heads up, I’m going to order right now 😀

  • QueenRhiannon

    Sadly I couldn’t get it, it’s sold out already 🙁 Oh well maybe they’ll get more in stock sometime

    • Isabella Muse

      sorry! 🙁 I thought your commented yesterday, realized it was today, yeah it was one day only!

  • Samantha

    This is a great deal!! I really really want this as I’ve always wanted the chocolate bar palette and I love better than sex mascara 🙂

  • Rosie

    is it the old packaging of the chocolate bar pallette? or the new slimmer packaging?

  • Lily

    Hi, I was able to order this and I’m excited, but now I have doubts , I’m not sure if my chocolate palette is real. It has the names of each shadow printed on it and the one My sis bought from sephora has a clear sheet w/ the names printed. Plus some of my shadows are not as pigmented. Why do think this came like that?

    • Isabella Muse

      hi lily/celi not sure what you want to me called? The palette is real, it’s just newly repackaged in a thinner case. HSN does not sell fake makeup and this set was in collaboration with Too Faced. It’s real. The formula seemed the same to me, only difference was the packaging. Hope this helps.

  • Celi

    Got it so excited but after comparing my chocolate bar palette to my sister, Im not sure if the one from hsn is a even real. Mine came with the names printed on the actual palette but the ones from every where else don’t they come with a separate clear plastic sheet with the names of the shadows. And a couple of shadows are not as pigmented and or as smooth and creamy.

    • Sofena

      Hi, I just bought the Chocolate Bar palette yesterday from Debenhams in the UK, and to my absolute astonishment and delight, the names of the individual shadows were printed above each shadow! This palette is now officially perfect, I’m so glad I waited a little before I got it! I think Too Faced have listened to the feedback about the lack of names and have finally decided to give us the delicious names on the palette itself, WIN!! 😀

  • Michelle

    It seems Too Faced listened to all of the user complaints about the names of the shadows being printed on the clear overlay, instead of on the palette. My brain was already working as to how I could get the names on the palette, but much to my surprise, mine came with them printed on there already!

  • Michelle

    In case y’all didn’t already know… you can request to cancel the free 1-year magazine subscription, and receive an $8 refund check. I was skeptical, but I received my check today! That makes this deal an even better steal!!! 🙂
