Too Faced Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

I have been wanting to own one of Too Faced's chocolate palettes, ever since the very first one came out. I've walked by it at Sephora and took a sniff, grab one for my basket, and then I put it back after walking around in the store because I kept telling myself I just do not need another neutral eyeshadow palette! I try to justify my beauty purchases and prioritize which I do want to get first. Finally, the 
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bon palette
became my top priority!

My Thoughts
This has become my go-to palette since I bought it. 
I love that this came in a pastel pink hard metal case, which reminds me of my pencil case back in Elementary. Every time I open this palette, you instantly smell the chocolate-scent! I was honestly sold on the heart-shaped pans and the neutral shadows that came in this palette out of the other Chocolate palettes they came out with. This has to be the cutest and the "girliest" palette I own, and I love it!

I love using Bordeaux (deep burgundy) as my outer "V" corner shadow. Mocha (matte taupe-brown) as my crease shadow. The shimmery shades on this palette are so pretty as well. They give that nice shimmer on your lids instead of chunky glitters. 

The darkest shadow is Dark Truffle which is a dark brown shade. So if you like your smokey eye makeup to be really dark and have more black in it, I would suggest to grab a different palette. This palette is great if you like to add some color to your everyday neutral eye look. 

Overall, it's a great everyday-"work wearable" eyeshadow palette! You can't go wrong with any shadow combinations in it. The shadows are easy to blend and pretty pigmented.
