Go on a Sweet Adventure with Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette, their third installment in the Chocolate Bar Palette line.

Initially I had some difficulty getting into th
e palette because the colors aren't organized from lightest to deepest or from matte to shimmery shades. However, I saw Kat's post where she viewed the palette in halves and it totally blew my mind and made me see the palette in a whole different light.

It's not an overly warm palette; there's a nice mix of cooler browns, warmer browns, and some brighter pops of color that make the palette more than the usual brown eyeshadow palette. It's also got the signature cocoa scent that makes it smell absolutely delicious.

Do they test on animals?: The company does not test on animals.
Packaging: The Chocolate Bon Bons Palette comes in a pink metal tin with a magnetic closure. Inside are the heart shaped eyeshadows with two large rectangular eyeshadows. The packaging feels substantial but manages to be slim at the same time.

The palette is much easier to digest if you look at the palette in two halves. Splitting the eyeshadows down the middle of the palette (i.e., hamburger style) so each half has seven of the heart shaped eyeshadow and the longer rectangular eyeshadow. The left half has a mix of lighter browns, two pinks, and a deeper brown. The right half has a mix of deeper browns, a light pink, deep purple, deep grey, and light beige.

Formula:

There's a nice mix of matte, matte with sparkle, and shimmery eyeshadows in the palette. The mattes are Almond Truffle, Bordeaux, Mocha, and Pecan Praline. The matte with sparkle shades are Cashew Chew, Malted, and Divinity. The shimmery shades are Satin Sheets, Sprinkles, Molasses Chew, Cotton Candy, Cafe au Lait, Black Currant, Dark Truffle, Totally Fetch, and Earl Grey.

I was wary that the matte eyeshadows might give me trouble but I was pleasantly surprised. I found the mattes to be smooth, pigmented, and not chalky. I thought the matte with sparkle and shimmery shades were excellent as well. I do think Divinity is such a light beige that it can look a bit ashy on deeper skin tones. 

The standout shades are Almond Truffle, Dark Truffle, Molasses Chip, Malted, Bordeaux, Mocha, Satin Sheets, and Earl Grey.

The combination of light warm and cool brown shades and deeper brown shades means I can easily mix and match them together to get a nice range of tones and almost any transition shade possible. This palette has been my go to palette lately for doing eye makeup looks. I don't own any of the other Chocolate Bar palettes so I can't compare any of the shades in there to the shades in this palette.

Also if you're wondering, the eyeshadows smell like cocoa but they don't smell once worn.

Swatches:

The eyeshadows are swatched dry over Milani's Eyeshadow Primer. The photos are taken in indirect natural daylight with no flash.

Conclusion:

If you're in the market for a new neutral palette and want one that isn't overly warm that has nice pops of color, you would not go wrong with the Chocolate Bon Bons Palette. The packaging is so cute, the contents matching the theme, and a formula that makes the purchase worthwhile. I think you can get a nice variety of looks from the palette, ranging from more office-friendly eye looks to smokey eyes. It's a great palette to start off with if you're new to Too Faced!

  3. It really does help to split the palette up like that. Thanks for the tip! I have this palette too, and sometimes feel overwhelmed with it.

  5. I never thought about splitting the palette in two. I like this palette and I can't resist the chocolate palettes so this is a win, for me.

    I love this palette. I couldn't resist it because of the heart shaped pans but I love the shades too

  7. I bought this the moment I saw the heart shaped shadows. I usually cherry pick in a palette so I never thought of the order. Your swatches are terrific.
