Review: Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette

 *Post contains affiliate links*
Hi everyone! Today, I'm finally going to be sharing my review of the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette. I've given this a good run, and it's safe to say that I really enjoy it!

Here is some info on the palette from Sephora:

What it is:
An eye palette from the Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection with 16 heart-shaped, cocoa powder-enriched eye shades in brights and neutrals.

What it does:
This palette features matte and shimmer eye shades in cool pops of color, brights, and beautiful neutrals. Each is infused with Too Faced’s chocolate-scented, antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder formula. The third palette in the bestselling Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection, Chocolate Bon Bons includes a signature Glamour Guide with three beauty looks to get you started. With 16 shades, including two cult favorite hues, it’s perfect for limitless eye looks. 

Chocolate Bon Bons comes with 6 matte shades and 10 shimmery shades, which is a nice range to me, in a metal case with a magnetic closure. All of the shadows are infused with cocoa powder, which does make it smell like chocolate. I have to say though, the scent is much less overpowering in this palette compared to the original Chocolate Bar and Semisweet palettes. With a primer, these shadows perform on the eyes very well, they blend easily and last all day. At first, I wasn't a massive fan of the color selection, but after using it and swatching all the colors, I totally fell in love. 

Swatches in the second photo from top to bottom are:

Almond Truffle
Satin Sheets
Cashew Chew
Cotton Candy
Cafe Au Lait
Dark Truffle
Pecan Praline
Totally Fetch

Colors in the second photo from top to bottom are:

Molasses Chip
Black Currant
Earl Grey

Alot of the colors blend into my skin a bit, but I did try to build them up as best as I could. I think this palette is fantastic honestly! It's got a great color range, and I can do a super neutral look, or do something more colorful. Cashew Chew is the perfect transition shade for me, Cafe Au Lait is a great lid shade that also makes for a great one-shadow look, Molasses Chip is probably the most beautiful shade out of this entire palette, and I love Bordeaux because I'm obsessed with burgundy shades, although this shade has a bit more brown in it. 

Overall, I think the Chocolate Bon Bons Palette is worth the $49 price tag, and I think this might be my favorite palette from the Chocolate Bar line. All of the shades swatched well for me, they look great on the eyes, and of course I love that it smells like chocolate.

I purchased mine from Sephora, but it is also at Ulta and the Too Faced website. 

Have you tried this palette?
