Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette Review

This spring, one of the hottest new products is going to be the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette! Too Faced has long been known as a cruelty free brand that produces a lot of high-quality vegan options. Their Chocolate Soliel matte bronzers are some of the most popular vegan bronzers out there. While a bronzer can be used to contour, this is the first contour product from Too Faced.

What exactly is the difference between a bronzer and a contour powder? Both can be used to create an illusion of shadows, but bronzers have a warmer finish than contour powders. They are meant to make you look sunkissed. Whereas contour products are meant to make your face look naturally more chiseled. This makes them overall a more flattering option to use when wanting to contour your face.

The new Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette contains two contour shades and two highlight shades. It also comes with a slanted kabuki brush for application. I recently posted a first impression and swatches video that you may want to watch to learn more.

Pros: Very smooth powders. Applies very evenly. Great for a variety of skin tones. Super soft brush that works pe. Comes with a guide for creating three different looks using the palette. Portable sized palette. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.

Cons: The highlight shade, Pop of Light, is more on a glittery highlight than a shimmery highlight. This is not necessarily a con, but it would depend on your personal preference for a highlight. This palette also does not contain a yellow shade unlike most popular contour palettes.

Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette Review

The shades in the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette are perfect, and I love that it has a variety of them. The powders are so fine and go on incredibly smooth. The kabuki brush is great for working with the contour shades, but I use a different brush for the highlight shades.I love that one contour shade is cooler and the other warmer. You can blend the two to create the perfect tone for your skin.

I love that one contour shade is cooler and the other warmer. You can blend the two to create the perfect tone for your skin. My one dislike about the palette is that Pop of Light went on shimmery when swatched, but it is definitely more glittery on my skin. I feel that it gets more glittery through the day. This is a downside because I personally prefer shimmery highlight powders to glittery highlight powders. This is just my personal preference. If you like a glittery highlight powder, this is a great option for you.

I have to say that, overall, I am absolutely loving the Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette! I have been using this palette every day since I got it. It is wonderful for creating a very natural contoured look. As a company Too Faced is completely free of animal testing, and this palette is free of animal ingredients as well.

    I have been curious about Too Faced and being cruelty free. I read that they used to be Leaping Bunny certified but were dropped. I reached out to them and they never replied to me.

      Hi Alex,

      I am not sure about their history with Leaping Bunny. Too Faced has always been very transparent and responsive to our outreach. I feel confident that they are cruelty free. 🙂

    Hi Tashina! You said matte bronzer of Too Faced are vegan, the ones with shimmer or glitter are not? or all the cocoa soleil collection is vegan? 🙂

      Hi Dani,

      The Too Faced Sun Bunny and Chocolate Soleil bronzer lines are vegan, but the other bronzer lines are not. I hope this helps!
