Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette – Review

Hello lovelies!

It’s time for my actual review of the star of my latest Sephora Haul, the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Collection.

Where do I even begin with this palette?  Honestly, when I went to Sephora it wasn’t even my intention to pick this palette up. At that time I had my eyes set at one thing and one thing only, the Sweet Peach Palette by Too Faced. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, seeing as it is sold out in most parts of the world) it hadn’t arrived yet and wouldn’t be arriving until a couple of weeks later.

Now, I don’t live in Stockholm and I don’t have regular access to an Sephora so hearing the Peach Palette wasn’t in stock made me more than remotely disappointed and I promptly went to sulk near the rest of the Too Faced shelf.

And that’s when I first laid my eyes on this thing of beauty.

The Chocolate Bon Bons Palette is a collection of 16 different shades, two of them which are cult favourites of Too Faced. It has a mixture of both matte and shimmery shades that are all super pigmented and absolutely gorgeous. And it’s so easy to create different kind of looks depending on both your mood and the occasion.

Also, it smells like the most sweet, delicious and tasty chocolate! I swear I had to stop myself from almost licking it the first time I opened it up.

Apart from the shades themselves and the adorable packaging it also comes with a Glamour Guide, which basically is a suggestion for three different looks you are able to create by using the palette.

So far I’ve fallen in love with all the shades I’ve tried, but my absolute favourites are no doubt the following:

Divinity – Divinity is one of the shadows meant to be used as a base and are more neutral than the others. It’s a wonderful light beige with just a hint of shimmer and it’s my go-to as a base for any looks I create.

Molasses Chip – This shade is my everything!  It’s a warm, shimmery and golden shade with some bronze notes in it and it is stunning to press onto the center to inner corner of your lid. Love love love it!

Café Au Lait – This has a bit less shimmer compared to Molasses Chip and is more of a cooler tone. I mostly use this the same way and press it onto the center of my lid. Abolutely gorgeous to pair with a red lip!

Sprinkles – Sprinkles is definitly my jam  for those days when I feel like being extra sweet. It reminds me of  powdered sugar with just a hint of pink and it is amazing swept across your entire lid or to use as a small pop of colour when applied to your inner corner.

And lastly I’ll share one of the looks I did with this palette.

I started off with Divinity as a base and then used Bordeaux as my crease colour. I then buffed Dark Truffle on my outer corner an into my crease as well as my lower lash line. After that I pressed Molasses Chip on the center of my lid, bledning it lightly towards my outer corner. I then applied Sprinkles to the inner most corner of my lid just to sweeten the look a bit.

And as a last touch I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Dark Brown as a liner instead of using a black eyeliner as I felt it too harsh.

Finish the look off with some lashes and then you’re good to go. To see the look in a different light as well as to get a live view of all that shimmer, feel free to visit my Instagram

  1. Omg! You’re so pretty 😍😍 Love the look you created! I’ve never tried anything from Too Faced but I’m saving some money to try the original chocolate bar palette as I love Warm Toned shadows especially golds and browns. Have you tried it?

    1. Oh my god thank you for being sweet! I’m not really all that pretty, but thank you! 💕
      The chocolate Bon Bons Palette was my first Too Faced palette, but I actually managed to get my hands on the Peach Palette as well (!!!) and I’ll be holding it in my hands in a couple of weeks.
      I definitely plan on getting even more of their palettes though, haha! 😁
      Thank you for reading! 💕
