Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette Looks

chocolatebonbon1

Too Faced’s new Chocolate Bon Bons palette is the third installment of their “Chocolate Bar” palette series and has 16 eyeshadows in various finishes. I found the pigmentation to be good for the most part throughout the palette. I was most looking forward to Black Currant and hoping it was going to be a better purple than Candied Violet from the original Chocolate Bar palette. Unfortunately, while it swatches beautifully, it gets lost in translation when applied to the eyes. Layered over a purple base, it looks beautiful though (I have to do that with Candied Violet, too). Another disappointing shade in this palette for me was ‘Cashew Chew’. It’s much too light and hard to get it to show on the eyes. It could work as a transition color, but other than that I found it to be a rather useless eyeshadow.

Too Faced’s signature cocoa scent has carried on into this palette. However, it’s a tinge sweeter-smelling in this palette compared with the other two. Maybe my other two are beginning to lose their potency? (YAY for that!) (I don’t really care for the scent, personally …)

There are also a couple of repeats in this palette compared to the original Chocolate Bar; Molasses Chip is a dupe for Creme Brûlée and Mocha is a next to near identical color to Milk Chocolate. Divinity also resembles White Chocolate but is slightly more pigmented. My favorite eyeshadows out of the palette are Almond Truffle, Cotton Candy, Bordeaux and Totally Fetch.

Is it worth getting? I think so. If you really liked the first Chocolate Bar palette, and you like wearing pink eyeshadows, you will enjoy this one. It makes up for the Semisweet palette, in my opinion, and the quality / lasting power is pretty amazing. What do you think of this palette?

  1. Thanks for the shades and how they look on your skin. I like the Earl Gray and Black Currant in the tray but they look lighter when applied.

  2. My daughter and I are so glad you did this review. She was on the fence about choosing it for her Christmas Gift because the colors looked so dark on the Sephora website. These are beautiful and the eyeshadow combinations really show off the versatility of this palette.

  3. I may be a loner on this but I honestly don’t see how people use shadows like Totally Fetch. I already have it in another palette and it is virtually untouched! I could live with Cotton Candy, though – that sort of pale pink is a shade I can wear. I love all the other shadows in this but, honestly, having yet ANOTHER Totally Fetch (in addition to several other bright pinks in some UD palettes) is keeping me from buying it!

    1. I thought that of Totally Fetch too! Yet.. When you apply it as a deep crease/outer v color and apply Cotton Candy or Sprinkles on top of it it makes a beautiful deep crease that’s not ‘scream at you’-pink 😉 Don’t think it will be a color anyone will soon hit pan on but I do use it that way ^_^

      1. Bente, I know a lot of people love shades like Totally Fetch and others have found ways to make it work for them. I just don’t want to “have” to do that, if you know what I mean. And I’ve already got a full, untouched pan of it in another TF palette (the holiday one from last year, I think!) as well as several other bright, unwearable (to me) pink shadows like UD Infamous and Alchemy. I’ll never get much use from any of them, even if I try. But the more I look at this palette, the more I’m feeling I will break down and buy it as the other colours are so lovely.

    Hi Zabrena ! Do you think you could duped this TF palette like you did with the Peach one ? That would be very appreciated and helpful !! Thanks !!

    Hi Zabrena! I was going to ask the same question as Marie-Josée above. Would love to see dupes for this palette. Not certain why, but these shadows do not stay on me that well…. thought it was a ‘chocolate bar’ issue but I recently purchased the TF naturally nude and it does the same thing and I wear excellent eye primers. Love your work Z! Cheers!

    This Palette was a total bust for me…I have tried so many looks and all of them, I have had to really work at. There is, for me, absolutely nothing special about this palette and I am going to give it away to someone who needs all these very “neutral” colors which are duplicated in so many other palettes. I do not think I have ever been so disappointed in a palette before this one came along. :(

    Thank you Zabrena, for at least showing a few looks.
