Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette 

If you’re after a palette that ticks all the essentials (neutrals, pops of colour, and a variety of finishes), this might be the perfect palette for you! I’ve only had this palette for a few months and it’s already taken the title of my most-loved palette!

It’s a great high-end  purchase, but be aware there aren’t many true mattes included. If you love shimmers like me, it shouldn’t be a huge issue. The eyeshadow pans were the first thing that really drew me in!

First row – Almond Truffle, Satin Sheets, Sprinkles, Molasses Chip  & Malted

Almond Truffle is a brown-mauve shade with cool undertones. I use this as a transition shade for cool-toned looks. Satin Sheets is a stunning brownbone highlight – although I prefer to use it a top my cheek bones for a really radiant glow. It’s a light frosty champagne colour. Sprinkles is a pale shimmery pink and looks great as an all-over lid shade, or as an inner corner highlight.

Molasses Chip is a rich medium-brown with a strong metallic sheet and fantastic pigmentation. It’s so smooth and buttery to apply! This all over the lid is stunning, especially against blue eyes. Malted is a dark matte brown with fine gold glitters scattered in it. I would use this to deepen my crease area.

Second row – Cashew Chew, Cotton Candy, Cafe Au Lait, Bordeaux, Mocha, Black Currant

Cashew Chew is my favourite go-to all over shade that works well as a base. It does have some super fine glitter in it, but this doesn’t really show when applied to the skin. Cotton Candy is a medium ‘bubblegum’ pink with a sheen finish. This, Sprinkles and Totally Fetch make for a really fun eye look. Cafe Au Lait is a pewter-silver colour with a strong metallic finish, similar to Molasses Chip (although not as highly pigmented). It’s another great all-over lid shadow.

Bordeaux is a deep burgundy shade with a matte finish. I use this to add further dimension to my crease area, or to smoke out my low lash line. Mocha is a medium brown with a matte finish and warm undertones. I use it as a transition shade for warm makeup looks. Black Currant is a deep purple with a shimmery-glitter finish. Pigmentation is a little patchy.

Third row – Dark Truffle, Pecan Praline, Totally Fetch, Earl Grey, Divinity 

Dark Truffle is a deep chocolate brown shade (like the name suggests) with satin-metallic finish. This would be perfect for a fierce smokey eye. Pecan Praline is a cool-toned medium grey that works well as an all-over or transition shade (like Cashew Chew). Totally Fetch is a bright dark pink (think Barbie’s signature shade) with a light shimmer finish. I love playing around with this colour – try it in the crease and blend towards the centre of the lid. It’s best friend in the palette is Cotton Candy.

Earl Grey is a dark metallic teal-grey shade, and is the most ‘unique’ colour in the palette. I feel like I’d need to grab some shades from other palettes to work this into a look. Divinity is an off-white matte brow bone highlight with fine gold glitters mixed through.

This is my first and will probably be my only Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette purchase, as I feel they all have the same theme – neutrals and a few pops of colour, and Bon Bons is the only one that catches my eye.
