I’ve had this beautiful trio in my collection for quite some time, but it’s taken me ages to try them out fully as I’ve lacked the opportunity – I think I’ve worn make-up a handful of times this year so far, and I just feel weird about putting make-up on when I’m not going out! The Too Faced Melted Chocolate Eye Shadows are pretty much everything I want from a liquid eyeshadow; easy to apply, matte, long-lasting and available in a great range of mostly nude and neutral shades.
I have a love/hate relationship with liquid eyeshadows as I’ve found that ones I’ve used in the past have dried-down to this crinkly, crepe-like finish on my lids, which not only looks odd, but feels uncomfortable too! The formula of the Too Faced Melted Chocolate Eye Shadows is creamy and comfortable, plus it doesn’t set straight away, giving you a bit of time to blend it out and get it looking even. Once set, it stays put, doesn’t sink into creases and, the few times I have worn them, they didn’t show any signs of wear right up until the point of removal.
I apply these by using the applicator to spread a rough amount of the eyelid, then using a fairly dense brush to buff out the colour and diffuse the edges. The three colours I have are:
Cocoa Cream – a milky flesh-tone that’s ideal as a primer, or just as a hint of colour to even out skin and make the eyes look more awake
Amaretto – my personal favourite, a mid-toned reddy brown that’s amazing on blue eyes and really brings out the colour
Chocolate Bunny – an everyday mid-toned neutral brown that’s perfect for a base on a brown smoky eye, but also great for adding a quick pop of colour that’ll enhance and define with minimal effort needed.
These are the perfect example of a basic product done really well. The formula is spot-on in every sense, making them really easy to use and work with, even if you’re like me and a bit cack-handed with cream products for the eyes! There are some fab shades available and I hope Too Faced add more to the line soon. Find them here – link – priced at £19 per shadow.
