Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon Palette

Hi everyone! I hope you've had a lovely Christmas! I've been a bit MIA recently because I was at work everyday in the run up to Christmas so between that and getting presents sorted and wrapped I have had absolutely no time to blog. Thankfully though I'm back to my normal shifts at work and I feel like I have a lot of lovely new products I got for Christmas to post about, I wanted to start with the one I am most excited about though, Too Faced recently launched their new Chocolate Bon Bon palette in America and on their Twitter I saw a post saying it wouldn't be available in the UK until February so I had actually asked for it for my birthday which is in February, however Debenhams had it on their website in December and my lovely boyfriend said I could have it for Christmas instead which was so exciting! So I got it on Christmas day and fell in love!


It is the third Chocolate Bar palette Too Faced have released, I have the original one and when I saw this one I knew I had to have it, you get 16 matte and shimmer shades and what I love about this one is that it is so different to the other Chocolate Bar palettes, I feel like you can do a lot more with this and have a wider range of looks. You get brights and neutrals so you can use it for any occasion, plus like the other palettes it also smells like chocolate which I love! 



The packaging is so pretty and girly as expected from Too Faced I feel like all their products look amazing! The box the palette comes in looks like a chocolate bar and then the actually palette is in a pink tin with embossed hearts, I love it so much! I think it's so sweet that the pans the eyeshadow comes in are heart shaped as well, so different and it fits in so well with the whole palette's feel.



There are 14 new shades in this palette and 2 existing ones, I think I definitely prefer the shimmer shades to the mattes, it's not that the mattes aren't good it's just that some of the shimmer shades are so pretty!

- Almond Truffle. Matte mauve toned taupe
- Satin Sheets. Pale pink with strong gold iridescence 
- Sprinkles. Pink with gold iridescence 
- Molasses Chip. Metallic bronze
- Malted. Satin matte deep brown with sparse shimmer
- Cashew Chew. Satin pink toned beige
- Cotton Candy. Cool bright medium pink shimmer
-  Cafe au Lait. Taupe grey shimmer
- Bordeaux. Red toned deep matte brown
- Mocha. Warm matte brown
- Black Currant. Deep purple shimmer
- Dark Truffle. Dark cool brown shimmer
- Pecan Praline. Matte pale grey taupe
- Totally Fetch. Hot pink shimmer
- Earl Grey. Deep teal toned grey shimmer
- Divinity. Matte ivory

I was so excited to get this palette however I was a bit worried that I wouldn't like it as much as the original Chocolate Bar palette, thankfully though I love it just as much! I don't think their is necessarily one I prefer because they are both very different. I had more reservations about this one as there is a few cool tones which I tend to stay away from but I actually don't mind them. They definitely won't be the shades I reach for first, particularly Pecan Praline and Cafe au Lait but I will use them when I'm wanting to try something new. I do have my favourites and they are Satin Sheets, Sprinkles and Molasses Chip, they are so pretty and so pigmented! On Christmas day I used Molasses Chip on the centre of the eyelid with Bordeux on the outer and inner section of the lid with Mocha in the crease and I really loved that, quite different to something I would usually do but I'm so pleased with how it looked. The only way that I can say I prefer this palette over the original is definitely the packaging, I'm just obsessed with it!

The quality is definitely up there with Too Faced standards, so pigmented and long wearing and very easy to work with as well, I'm definitely an amateur when it comes to eyeshadow, I definitely don't have the knack for it and it takes me a lot longer to come up with something that I'm happy with but I found this very easy to use, also you get the little glamour guide with this palette which tells you how to create three looks and it comes with a little how to section which is really helpful when you don't really know where to start. This palette really isn't cheap, it retails for £39 from Debenhams which is expensive however if you are on the fence about it I can definitely say that the quality is amazing and you can do so much with this palette so you will be getting your moneys worth! I'm just in love, definitely my favourite make up product I got for Christmas and I will be reaching for this a lot! I was just wondering also what people's thoughts are on What I Got For Christmas posts, I've been wondering to do one or not because I'd never want it to seem like bragging however I personally love reading these types of posts and seeing all the lovely gifts everyone got, let me know in the comments what you think about them!

  1. This sounds and looks amazing.

    I felt the same about the What I got for Christmas posts at first too, I didn't want to feel as though I was spoilt, however I love being nosey and hearing about other peoples, so I say go for it. I am sure I will end up doing the same myself :)

  3. This looks like such a lovely palette. I'm not sure I'd use some of the brighter shades such as the pinks but all of the rest are gorgeous! So lucky you managed to get your hands on it!

  9. Sorry to hear you were working straight up to Christmas, you must have been so busy preparing for Christmas whilst still working! I hope you had a wonderful break though :) This palette looks so gorgeous, the heart-shapes are adorable and the darker colours are particularly special.

  10. This is such a pretty palette but I'm wondering how wearable the pink shades are? I'm in two minds about whether to buy it! xx

    1. Totally Fetch is the only one I probably won't be using but the other pink shades are honestly so pretty! They could be used to create such a nice wearable rose gold look I love them!xx

  11. I've been thinking of getting it, since I love other Too Faced shadows and this just looks so precious. I was back and forth, just like you, with 'What I got for Xmas' post and decided to skip it. It's weird, because I really like watching them on YouTube and don't think of it as bragging but for some reason, when it comes to doing my own, I couldn't do it. Oh well, maybe next year:) Loving your blog xxx
