I am so obsessed with eye shadows. Actually, I’m pretty sure they are my favorite pieces of makeup to purchase. I think it’s because I always put the focus on the eyes, so color matters!
And when I find a good palette, it just makes me totally giddy! The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette has been my go-to since I snagged it last month. I seriously cannot put it down. So what’s so great about it?

First off, let me just say – I’m a mom. I like to save money. I like to spend it wisely. Because of this, I love my drugstore makeup. But sometimes, there are things worth the splurge, my friends. And this is one of those times.
I don’t think I’ve ever NOT loved anything from the Too Faced brand. So I knew I would like the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette right off the bat. But I’m seriously having a hard time trying to go back to my other shadows!
First impressions: Well for starters, the packaging is seriously the cutest I’ve ever seen. It looks like a giant candy bar. And if you weren’t aware, it SMELLS LIKE ONE TOO. Say what? Yes. It’s chocolate scented. And I’m a choco-holic. Now I do find this a bit strange, but dang it, it smells good. And I usually hate scented things. But, I find it to be pretty mild, so it doesn’t bother me.
On to the swatching! How cute are the little heart shapes? SO fun! One thing I really love about it is that the two base colors that I use with pretty much any other color combo are rectangular, so there’s more of them. This is definitely smart so you don’t use it all up first. I will cry when I hit pan. Haha! Some of them are matte and some of them are shimmery.
The pigmentation in this palette is the best thing about it. The color will go on your lids exactly as you see them here. This makes it worth the money for sure. Also, there’s not a lot of fallout (although there is some) but it’s relatively creamy and goes on smooth. It blends very easily and is buildable, too.
So if I’m being honest, I feel like the reason why I didn’t purchase this palette much sooner was because the colors didn’t look very practical to me. I mean, I love a good dramatic eye with some playful looks. But I’m also a working mom. I have to be in an office M-F and I can’t wear anything too crazy. I don’t usually wear a ton of makeup there. The cool thing about these colors though are that I can totally get a subtle look or a dramatic look from them, either one. I just save the bolder colors for weekends and wear the neutrals more for work, etc.
With that being said, I thought I’d share some of my favorite looks that I’ve created with this palette! And if you scroll all the way to the bottom, I’ve created a totally pinnable photo for you that shows you all the colors used for each look! Check them out and let me know which is your favorite!
If you’re in search for a new palette, then I highly recommend this one. The neutrals in it will work with pretty much any skin tones and the shimmers and bold colors would look fun on any eye color! You can find it here on Amazon (affiliate link): Chocolate Bon Bons. Here’s a closeup of both sides, just so you can drool over them a little more…
