Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette
Too Faced did it again! A new version of their chocolate bar collection. The first one was the Chocolate Bar Palette, second was the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette and now the Chocolate Bon Bons Palette.
Out of the first two, I only purchased the Chocolate Bar Palette. Besides the fact that it smells delicious, just like a chocolate bar, it was a great palette to add to my collection. Pigmentation was there and the array of neutrals. It was my go to palette. When the second one came out, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette, I hesitated. I wasn’t sure if I needed it. There was also an array of neutrals with some pop of color, but I wasn’t sure I needed it. I waited for some honest reviews and most favored the original palette.
When the Chocolate Bon Bons Palette came out, people I follow, were claiming that this palette was better than the original. I still had my reserves and wanted to wait for the hype to calm down, (which is what usually happens…there is a big hype for recent releases and when it all calms down or new products come out, then the true opinions about the palette come out). Although I did not purchase this palette myself, (was a free product at GenBeauty event), I was planning to purchase it.
Regardless how I got it, I am so glad I have it. It has beautiful neutral, warm shades and a pop of color. It has a mix of mattes and shimmers, but the shimmers have more of a metallic sheen to them. Which in my opinion, is what separates this one from the original. Both gorgeous with buttery and pigmented formulation.
Chocolate Bon Bons has 16 shades: Almond Truffle, Satin Sheets, Sprinkles, Molasses Chip, Malted, Cashew Chew, Cotton Candy, Cafe’ Au Lait, Bordeaux, Mocha, Black Currant, Dark Truffle, Pecan Praline, Totally Fetch, Earl Grey and Divinity.
Lastly, lets talk about packaging…The Chocolate Bon Bons Palette comes in it’s traditional tin container shaped as a chocolate bar. From the inside, all the shadows are in shape of hearts except for two (Satin Sheets and Divinity). In my opinion, the company was very smart in release date and packaging, it makes for an awesome Valentine’s Day gift!! (Wink, Wink!!)
