Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette

I almost got through a no-buy month without a purchase but when the HSN.com was offering $20 off on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette and a full sized Eyeshadow Insurance, both for $31.05 including free shipping, I couldn't say no.
 
I like the pink and gold outside packaging.

 
Sturdy plastic case reminiscent of a Hershey's...  :)
 
 
The size is on par with Urban Decay, Lorac Pro and theBalm, just a touch bit thicker.  The palette itself is a hard plastic case similar to UD 2 and 3 (or are those metal?).  It has a magnetic closure which isn't very strong.  You will need to pick this up from the bottom of the palette or the top will swing open.
 
 
 
The shades are of course gorgeous and there is a faint smell of chocolate! This is my first eye shadow palette, makeup product really, from Too Faced so the chocolate smell is all new to me.  :)
 (The only product from Too Faced that I own is the Shadow Insurance.)
 
I'm loving the almost equal representation of shimmer, mattes and satins.  A blue/purple, plum, green, brown, bronze, copper, gold... 

 
I'm not sure what is going on with this shadow called Cherry Cordial but it is a beautiful burgundy shade with just a touch of glitter.


This shade in Semi-Sweet (one of the chocolate smelling shades) has a little ding in it but a testament to the soft, buttery goodness these eyeshadows have.

 
This shade called Candied Violet has pink and teal glitter bits and is just a gorgeous color.  I can't wait to wear this! 
 

 
Can you tell I am super excited about this palette?  Why would I possibly need another eyeshadow palette?  The palette retails at $49, which is competitively priced with other palettes of similar quality.  But with the variety of shades and finishes, this is worth picking up.
 
 
They are already so happy together.  :)
