So, I haven't bought anything by Too Faced in forever it feels like and since lately things have been looking up in my life, I decided to treat myself to their holiday Shadow Bon Bons palette. Packed with a punch of shimmery neutrals and smokey shades, as well as a full sized mascara and their Shadow Insurance in Candlelight, this was a palette that I had to get my hands on before the holidays came to an end.
There are 12 bon bon eyeshadows included in this palette that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth for any occasion:
Vanilla: Matte ivory
Cut the Cake: Light lavender
Framboise: Dark shimmery plum
Coffee Bean: Matte dark brown
Peach Fuzz: Light shimmery pinky-peach
Hot Cocoa: Medium shimmery golden brown
Candy Rose: Matte light coral-pink
Lovey Dovey: Dark shimmery bronzey brown
Nude Beach: Shimmery golden beige with gold glitter flecks
Cinnamon Sugar: Light golden bronze
Marzipan: Matte light orangey-brown
Licorice: Matte dark brownish-black with bronze shimmer flecks
Price: $45 CAD at Sephora
L-R: Vanilla, Cut the Cake, Framboise, Coffee Bean

These colours looked magnificent in my swatch pictures and when I put them on my eyes. Nude Beach is, in my opinion, a gorgeous shadow to use on the decollete and areas you want some added fine glitter. It doesn't have much colour to it and with the glitter flecks, there was some fall out on the lids when I used it. But, I was able to get a nice glittery effect on my lids by patting it on top of a cream eyeshadow base like Candlelight. All of the colours are very wearable and easy to use for day and night. The pigmentation is amazing and application was smooth for all of them and the packaging is easy to travel with.
LashGasm is the full-sized mascara included in the set and so far, I like that it lengthens my lashes and makes me feel like I have fake ones on when I don't. It doesn't do much in terms of thickening and volumizing the lashes, so if you're looking for good length more than anything, LashGasm is one to look into.
I knew I'd love Candlelight just as much, if not more, than the original Shadow Insurance Primer. The soft champagne colour it adds to the lids as a base is perfect to wear with any of the neutral and bronzey shades. Overall, I've been able to get at least a whole work day of wear with most of the shadows without a base and when I paired some of the bronzes with Candlelight, I was covered for wear all day and night long.
This palette was on sale when I purchased it (although I can't remember the price) so it was an even more amazing deal. You're getting a lot for your money with everything that's included in this palette and if you're a fan of smokey and neutral colours, you'll have a lot of fun with the Shadow Bon Bons!
