This palette smells like chocolate. Let me repeat that. THIS PALETTE SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE. From the first moment I gazed upon the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Collection, I was already in love ... but discovering that IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE? How could I resist? (Um, I couldn't.)

I've always been a huge makeup palette fan, mainly because I love the way they're designed and how incredibly easy they make applying makeup in the first place. And this palette certainly contains adorable design in spades! I love the raised hearts on the front of the palette, I love the beautiful pink tin and -- of course -- I love all the eyeshadows inside!

All 16 eyeshadows in this collection are GORGEOUS. And did I mention they smell like chocolate?

Fourteen heart-shaped eyeshadows and two rectangular-shaped shadows come in an array of matte and shimmer finishes. Most of the 16 shades are surprisingly wearable, from sugary brights and go-to neutrals to cool color pops and rich, chocolate-inspired browns. This palette contains the following shades:

Almond Truffle (matte light brown)
Cashew Chew (shimmery beige)
Dark Truffle (shimmery chocolate brown)
Cotton Candy (shimmery pastel pink)
Pecan Praline (matte taupe)
Cafe Au Lait (shimmery goldish silver)
Totally Fetch (shimmery fuchsia)
Satin Sheets (shimmery beige)
Sprinkles (shimmery pale peach)
Bordeaux )matte chocolate brown)
Earl Grey (shimmery charcoal)
Molasses Chip (shimmery taupe)
Mocha (matte light brown)
Malted (copper-flecked deep brown)
Black Currant (shimmery plum)
Divinity (matte beige)

I love that most of the color names are inspired by food and drinks. I do think it's strange to have a few names thrown in that aren't confection inspired, since they just don't really fit the theme. And, as you can probably tell, I've already dipped into Cafe Au Lait and Molasses Chip -- I've been alternating between them for work and everyday looks. I'm really excited to start using Cotton Candy, Totally Fetch and Black Currant as well -- they're definitely gorgeous colors that are perfect for an evening out!

And in case this fact didn't already sink in ... THIS PALETTE SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE. This is thanks to an infusion of antioxidant-rich cocoa powder ... which might be good for the eyes, but all I really care about is the delicious chocolate scent that wafts out of the palette every time I open it.

Bon appetit.

The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Collection retails for $49 at sephora.com.

  5. I had to buy this because of the hearts. Even if it doesn't get a lot of use I'm loving the hearts. I'm like Allison and Erika - waiting to be photographed - I love pristine items a little too much.
