Who doesn’t love chocolate? I am a huge fan of Too Faced and was so excited to hear that they were releasing the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette. Since I already own the Original Chocolate Bar Palette and the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette, I knew I had to get my hands on this one and I haven’t been disappointed. This gorgeous palette is themed around candy-coated confection and today I’m going to share it with all of you.
The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette ($49.00) includes an array of 16 matte and shimmer shades in cool pops of color, sugary brights and beautiful neutrals. Each eye shadow is infused with the chocolate-scented goodness we have come to love – that antioxidant-rich cocoa powder formula. The Chocolate Bon Bons palette is the third in the best selling Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection and it comes with a signature Glamour Guide that includes three beauty looks that you can use for inspiration.
Just like the other Chocolate Bar palette, the Chocolate Bon Bons palette comes in a tin packaging that is sturdy and makes for great travel. It includes a good size mirror and I love that it also includes the name of each shadow on the palette itself to make for ease of use. I own the original Chocolate Bar palette (1st edition) and that was one of my complaints, that the name was not on the palette and shades. I still hold on to that little piece of plastic so I know what to call those babies. lol As mentioned above, each shadow is infused with antioxidant-rich cocoa powder and smells of a sweeter chocolate scent then the other two (in my opinion).
The palette includes 14 brand new shades plus 2 cult favorites that will help in providing a limitless amount of eye looks. The shades in this palette are perfect for me as they include a purple (black currant) that blends well with other shades to create a show stopping eye look with pizzazz. The palette has heart shaped pans and the colors include rich candied bright shades that make such a great addition to the Chocolate Bar family. I absolutely love it.
The first row of shades are perfect for anyone that loves a neutral eye look or something for every day. Molasses Chip has become one of my favorite eye lid shades and Satin Sheets makes for a great inner corner highlight. I also love using Satin Sheets as a cheek highlight too.
Cashew Chew (2nd row) is the perfect transition shade for my skin tone, as is Mocha and Black Currant and Bordeaux have been shades I love to use for deepening my eye look or creating more definition in the crease.In the 3rd Row one of my favorite shades is Totally Fetch. Not only is the name a winner, but this gorgeous hot pink shade makes a great pop of color and blended with other shades it can tone down for a subtle hue. Divinity is a great brow bone highlight shade and is matte but blends effortlessly.
At first glance I really didn’t think I would get much use out of the Chocolate Bon Bons palette, especially since I had so many similar shades in others… It took me at least a month to dive in and pick it up. I decided that I couldn’t resist and I’m glad I picked it up because it has been a favorite palette to use since I got it. I created the look below using colors from this palette and was amazed at how easy it was to blend in Totally Fetch in my look.

Research has show that the scent of cocoa is a natural mood-booster, however – the palette and the way it looks (it’s bright pink packaging) would make anyone smile. I’m very impressed with this palette overall and it has easily become a favorite among many in my collection. If you haven’t picked it up yet and have been on the fence, I highly suggest it. I’ve been a huge fan of Too Faced products and the brand for years and I’m absolutely loving the Chocolate Bar line. The Chocolate Bon Bons palette was a great addition in my opinion and I’m really enjoying the palette and the gorgeous shades it includes.
