You know when you see a particular item of makeup prior to launch and you know deep down in your chilly little heart that it simply must be yours?
Well, that was me when I first saw the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette.
I already own the original Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, which looks like a large slab of Dairy Milk.
Without fail, I use it every single day as it is just so versatile - I use them as bases, on my lid, in my crease, as highlights under my brow and on my cheek - and I even use the shade Semi-Sweet to currently fill in my brows.
I was pondering one of the Urban Decay Naked Palettes as an alternative - but the promise of buttery, blendable cocoa-powder induced formulas was simply too hard to resist.
There has since been a second palette called Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar (which ironically doesn't carry the shade also called 'Semi-Sweet' as before...), but personally the warmer tones just didn't tickle my pickle enough to pique my interest into buying.
However at the end of last year Too Faced launched a third palette called Chocolate Bon Bons and I was immediately smitten...
Now I'll happily admit I am a complete sucker for packaging - I am particularly drawn to anything cute and ultra-feminine.
And really now, how could I resist a baby pink palette with all the freaking heart-shaped shadows?
I have honestly never seen anything like the packaging for this package. It reminds me of the beautiful boxes of chocolates my parents would buy on childhood family holidays to Paris and Brussels.
Of course, the product is the most important thing.
I already had such high expectations loving the original Chocolate Bar palette so much, and it being such a huge part of my everyday makeup routine.
And so far, it hasn't disappointed.
It's a lot slimmer than the Chocolate Bar, but you still get the same amount of product for your buck.
The same wonderful mix of shimmers and mattes make up the palette.
So far, I have found them all as wonderful as it's predecessor.
I know some bloggers think the cocoa smell is less prominent in this palette as previous, but honestly I can't really see much of a difference.
Some people really dislike the sweet, chocolately smell, but I do have quite the sweet tooth and absolutely love it.
If you can't find the palettes in a shop to physically try for yourself, it's the same smell in the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer which is a lot easier to find.
Otherwise, I honestly think it smells just like Cadbury's Drinking Chocolate when it is still in powder form. So if it like the smell of that, you'll love this!
And even if you're not too keen, it's not pungent enough for me to smell it on myself when the shadows are on my eyes.
Some of my favourite shades Molasses Chip as I always love the way golden colours look with my green eyes.
I'm also greatly enjoying using Bordeaux, Black Current and Dark Truffle in my crease and also underneath my lower lash line.
The highlighting shade Satin Sheets is almost itentical to Champagne Truffle from the Chocolate Bar - but this doesn't bother me as I use this shade everyday anyway under my brow and sometimes on my cheek.
And Divinity works really well as a base - especially with Cafe Au Lait or Pecan Praline on top.
The palette costs £39.00 and I bought mine online from Debenhams.
Have you guys ever tried any of the Too Faced palettes, or any of their other products?
They're slowly becoming one of my favourite brands so I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Not sponsored. I purchased this palette with my own money.
All opinions are - as always - my own.
I am so, so tempted by this palette! I recently picked up the Too Faced bronzer and I'm in love with the scent and how well it applies too. Nearly 40 quid is a bit pricey but maybe I can excuse it as 'wedding makeup'? ;) xxReplyDelete
I absolutely love the Too Faced blushes! I own 3 of them! >o<ReplyDelete
