Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette

If I was to give you a minute to think about the first thing that comes to mind when I say Too Faced, I'm pretty certain that you would say chocolate, their chocolate bar palettes to be specific.
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette Review
Too Faced have a whole range of chocolate palettes from their white chocolate chip to semi-sweet to chocolate bon bons, they have a palette for everyone. Each one of their chocolate bar palettes have their famous antioxidant-rich cocoa powder infused within the palette which gives them their distinctive sweet scent. As soon as you open the palette you are greeted by the cocoa scent which is an instant yet natural mood booster; what's not to love about this palette!

Packaging&Design
I surprisingly really like the packaging of this palette, considering it is tin which I find can be a bit bulky, but due to the length, acting as a chocolate bar, it works perfectly. The aesthetics of this palette are beautiful with the hearts on the top acting as bars of chocolate they look so girly in the baby pink colour. As for the back of the palette, is has a short description about the palette alongside the itty bitty information at the bottom in smaller print.

When you open the palette you are greeted by a mirror on the interior side of the lid in amongst the pink and gold Too Faced chocolate bon bons writing. Going along with the girly theme of this palette, the eyeshadows don't disappoint, they are in heart shaped pans which work wonderfully with the packaging.

Shadows Themselves

This palette contains 16 shades with 14 brand new and two which are cult favourites from the brand, this shows the effort and dedication they had to this palette to make it unique to any other they have already produced. One thing that I don't like about the shadows is the fact that 14 of them are in heart shaped pans whereas two are in rectangles, they could have fitted in four heart shadows instead of just two larger ones.

Within this palette are some outstandingly pretty shades which can be used by themselves or in conjunction with the other shades in the palette, however, there are a few that let it down. Pecan Praline and Cashew Chew are somewhat non-existent when it comes to pigmentation, I had to literally swipe a thousand times to make the colour show up on the swatch, which is a shame as they could have worked really well alongside the other shadows. I really like the variety of shades you get in this palette as there are a few neutrals as well as pops of colour through the pinks, purples and greens meaning you can create an array of eye looks.

Overall Thoughts

Retailed at £39.00 this Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette is worth the money in my opinion. I love the diverse shade range as well as the adorable cute, pink packaging which makes the palette feel very girly. The colour pay off on the metallic shades are my favourites to use on the eyes, it's just a tad annoying that a couple of the shades don't live up to the rest. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a high-end palette, loves anything to do with chocolate and Too Faced and is into a really fun and girly palette.

Have you got this palette and what do you think of it? Do you adore the Too Faced chocolate bar range just as much as everyone else? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
