Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches & Giveaway

Life is a box of bon bons, according to Too Faced! They released their third chocolate palette and it is called ... Chocolate Bon Bons! Just like an assortment of real bon bons, you get a little bit of EVERYTHING when it comes to colors! The first row of shades had me tickled pink (well really neutral)! The neutral shades were fab! Their pigmentation was excellent! One swipe of each and I was like WOO HOO...GO TOO FACED! The second row of shades are just as beautiful, but a little softer in tone (as you'll see from my swatches, but still very much pigmented). The only one I was disappointed with in the second row was Black Currant. In the pan, it looks to be a very dark & rich purple ... it's not. It's much lighter than what I expected. The third row is BAM...IN YOUR FACE...BOLD! Totally Fetch is the "misfit" shade of this palette! It's a super hot pink and I applaud anyone who can work it (I know there are that can ... So this one is for you) but it SURE AIN'T ME! My hot pink days are OVER! LOL I am in love with Earl Grey! You don't see many grey eye shadows out there, and I needed one in my life. Love the outer packaging! It's always cute. The only packaging gripe with the palette that I have, is that it closes...but it doesn't close well! So when traveling, keep it in it's box or put it in a cosmetic case/ziploc bag .... or else you will have a MESS. Too Faced needs to work on a proper closure for these palettes. They give you a glamour guide of makeup looks to get you started with your palette. It has a mirror (sorry ... not sorry I covered it up with faux sweets). And it smells like SWEET, YUMMY, DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE! To compare this palette to the other one's CLICK HERE. Too Faced is coming out with a PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY EYE SHADOW PALETTE February 28th (Too Faced & Ulta) and later this Summer a PEACH EYE SHADOW PALETTE (now this is the one to SWOON over ... The colors look amazing)! As every year, I'm giving away a Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette to one lucky reader of A Very Sweet Blog! OPEN WORLDWIDE! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!

Hi Kim, I love how pretty the shadows look in that palette. Thanks for sharing this review on it. You would love those macarons. Maybe they will open up more stores around the world!! Too bad they did have an online store. Enjoy the end of the week and have a nice weekend.

Omg the colours and the packaging are just so beautiful

Cee said...

That hot pink shade - WOW! Like you, my hot pink days are long over and I would be impressed by anyone who could manage to pull off that colour. For me, this palette looks like most Too Faced palettes in the sense that it has some colours that I love and some others that I don't think I would ever use. The two Too Faced palettes I do have, I've hit pan on some shades while never touching others, so I won't be rushing out to buy too many more, I don't think.

Angela Angeline said...

I have entered the giveaway, though don't know if it is international.
Great review, Kim. I have heard similar thoughts on Black Currant.
