Too Faced 'BonBon palette' review!

Thursday, 4 May 2017


The Too Faced BonBon palette was one of which I was a bit hesitant to buy, I absolutely loved the original chocolate bar but I couldn't help but realise the pans were made smaller when being made into a heart shape apposed to the regular rectangle... or did they?
I am always 100% honest when reviewing products so if you're on the fence, then keep on reading..

Too Faced Bonbon palette review.

So first let's talk about the palette itself in basic terms, it was £39 and contains 14 shades with 0.03OZ each and 2 shades with 0.07OZ each meaning you do get the same amount of product that you in the original chocolate bar palette; this was something I was curious about as the heart shaped pans did at first look smaller than the original pans.
 If I'm honest then I have to say that I'm not really a fan off the too faced tin packaging, I love the colours and the designs don't get me wrong, but the factory feel off the tin makes me think that the shadows will smash easily if knocked or dropped...although saying that I haven't actually broke any yet (touch wood).

Too Faced Bonbon palette review.The actual design of the palette can not be faulted, it is absolutely adorable and by far one of the pretties palettes I own, if I was to describe Too Faced as brand using one product, then it would be the Bonbon. Now of course the palettes are known for having that unique cocoa smell... which yes, it does have, but nowhere near as strong as people make out, and this is something which I instantly thought when opening my original Chocolate bar. In my personal opinion the Makeup revolution dupe smells a lot more chocolaty, so if that's all you're after then deffo check that out first.

Too Faced Bonbon palette review.
I literally brought this palette for the bright pink shade alone, its absolutely stunning and I love nothing more than a nice pinky toned shadow nicely blended in my crease, in fact, one of my go to looks with this palette is Cotton candy all over my lid and totally fetch in the crease.
A problem that I personally have with this palette is that I have quite tanned, warm toned skin, so the super cool toned shadows like 'Pecan Praline' just end up looking ashy on me, which isn't a good look, but of course the palette has to cater for all skin types, which I guess it does!

Ok so I completely forgot to even swatch Pecan Praline, (coincidence considering that's the one I said I didn't like aye haha!), but I'm sure if you just search it into google it will come up.  
The colours that don't impress me much (shamelessly sang that as  Shania Twain) are sadly Sprinkles, I just find this too chunky as a shadow and find most the time it will flake away and kind of hard to pick up with any brush;  Black current, as it is just so different to what it looks like in the pan; and Cashew Chew, as I just find that this shade has little to no pigmentation, and I have darker skin so it should surly contrast and show up more.

This is the point where I would normally pick my favourite shadows, but in all honestly they all preform as well  as each other, the formula is incredibly creamy and blends like an absolute dream. 
 Shade wise, then of course it is Totally Fetch and Cotton Candy and actually, I will mention the shade Bordeaux as I really expected it to be quite chalky and was so pleasantly surprised when I found out how warm and soft the swatch was.

V E R D I C T


I think this palette is completely worth the money, the way I look at it is you get 16 shades for £39, which works out at only £2.43 per shade, and lets be honest, if Too Faced were selling their individual shades at £2.43, than I know I defiantly would buy a ton.

I will say that I think this palette would suit lighter skin tones the best, I mean of course its still a good palette for any skin tone, but I just think the lighter skin toned base will get the best tones out of the shades such as Almond Truffle and Cashew Chew.

Let me know what you think in the comments if you have the palette and what you think of it, id love to know if anyone agrees with me, or alternatively if I put you off or convinced you to buy it!

  2. I hate the tin packaging as well :( the lid to my chocolate bar palette broke off about 3 weeks after I bought it! I find I really like too faced matte shadows but the glitter ones are more patchy. Their Liquid lipsticks are some of my favourite though!

    1. I find some of the simmer shades to be too chunky and end up needing a glitter glue underneath as if they were a pigment, but the packaging is so rubbish, mines broke since writing this as the hinges are just so thin! I haven't tried a liquid lipstick yet but I have tried a melted metallic and I did enjoy it!x

  3. I'm so pleased you had such good results. This is my go to palette and I'm obsessed! I think the smell of chocolate is what draws me to it, but hey who's judging!

    1. The smell is so good, (although I hate the smell of the sweet peach palette)! I was put off this palette for so long as I was scared of the bright pink hahah but I'm obsessed now!
