The Chocolate Bar comes in a pink and gold decorative box, reminiscent of a package you'd find nestled in a candy shop.
The back of the box illustrates the 16 shades of shadow inside and provides a description of the collection. It mentions that these eye shadows are formulated with real cocoa powder, hence the amazingly decadent smell :)
The palette itself resembles- what else?- a chocolate bar. It's made of durable plastic and looks good enough to eat! It isn't the sleekest of packaging, but the novelty of it makes it ultra unique.
The palette itself contains a decently-sized mirror (see first pic) and a sheer overlay that provides the names of each of the shadows inside. You can see that the two palest shade have larger pans, which I think is absolutely brilliant! I always go through highlight colours much quicker than deeper ones, so this will ensure that these everyday shades will last.
In line with the theme of the palette, each of the shade names is rather mouth-watering. As mentioned, there is a fabulous selection of 16 shades in this palette. More than most! They are:
Gilded Ganache- a cool, mid-tone, shimmery taupe
White Chocolate- a matte ivory
Milk Chocolate- a warm, matte lighter brown
Black Forest Truffle- a deep plum with sparkle
Triple Fudge- a deep, neutral matte brown
Salted Caramel- a warm, matte butterscotch
Marzipan- a shimmery champagne
Semi-Sweet- a mid-tone matte mahogany
Strawberry Bon Bon- a matte candy pink
Candied Violet- a shimmery, cool blueish-purple
Amaretto- a warm, shimmery plummy gold
Hazelnut- a warm, mid-tone shimmery brown
Creme Brulee- a true, shimmery gold
Haute Chocolate- a neutral chocolate brown with subtle shimmer
Cherry Cordial- a warm, matte magenta
Champagne Truffle- a shimmery, silvery pale pink
And here are swatches of all 16 shades on my inner arm (MAC NC15 skin tone), placed exactly as they appear in the palette:
