The too faced Bon Bons palette came out a few days ago and I purchased it right at midnight and to my surprise I got a package in the mail the next day from Too Faced and they actually sent me the new palette! (The one I personally ordered is still in the mail somewhere and ill be returning it!) They sent it along with a beautiful ACTUAL chocolate bar. *which was amazing by the way* I was so caught off guard... I'm very appreciative! On the Too Faced website the palette is currently $49 and in stock!
The chocolate bar was dark chocolate Champagne and strawberries that featured some of too faced best products all over the packaging. Its so cute I can't bring myself to throw it away. It seems like the candy bar is from a place called Compartes ~ I checked out their website and they have so many yummy options! Definitely check them out if you're into chocolate at all or know anybody who is ♡ Since Christmas is coming up thats a great stocking stuffer for that cute chocolate lover in your life~
I love love love all the Too faced palettes but this one has got to be the cutest one they have come out with... by far. Its amazing! The packaging is so adorable. I love the names of all the colors. Am I the only one who thinks the names of colors makes things more desirable? I once bought an eyeshadow that was called "kitten" purely just because of the name -oops-. I've been waiting for this palette to come out for so long its so exciting to finally have it here with me.
I love that the palette isn't made of fabric or something I can't wipe clean because my makeup palettes tend to get pretty dirty and I like the option of being able to clean them! The palette also has a magnetic closure so you don't have to worry about the palette opening up in your bag and breaking. It also has a large mirror on the inside which is amazing for traveling!
Before I actually tried the colors, I knew my favorites were going to be satin sheets, cotton candy, sprinkles, and molasses chip! There are 16 shades in total and most of them are shimmery. There are only four totally matte shades and the rest are shimmery and contain little bits of glitter. Black currant and Cafe au late seem to be the most "glittery". I absolutely love shimmer and glitter but if you're looking for a palette with tons of matte shades, this probably isn't the one for you. I do think this will be a great starter palette for anyone starting with makeup though because it has a lot of neutral shades that look great on every skin tone as well as a few fun colors to play around with! I don't own the semi sweet chocolate bar (the second chocolate bar) so I can only compare it to the first one and I personally think its an amazing improvement and for me to say that means a lot because I use that one every single day! The first chocolate bar didn't have the names printed by the shades which wasn't a huge deal but its so much more convent having them there.
After swatching all the colors I found my absolute favorite shade was satin sheets and i'm so excited that was my favorite because its one of the larger shades! It reminds me of a champagne color. Its absolutely stunning. Its going to be my every day color for a while! I do apologize for my swatches because I don't have any eyeshadow primer right now :(. But even without primer the colors came out amazing. Over time i've found that using pink colors is really hard without primer but these came out great! The only thing I was kind of sad about with this palette is that it doesn't smell like chocolate as much as my original chocolate bar palette does. Maybe i'm just used to the scent? While I was playing with the bon bons palette today I was happy to find that there was very little fallout! The colors were creamy and went on really smooth. I recommend it to all of you ! ♡ If you're new with makeup this would be a great treat and if you're experienced with makeup this would be a great palette to add to your collection.
What do you guys think of the new Bon Bons palette? ♡
