Too Faced Chocolate Palettes Comparisons

Too Faced Chocolate Palettes Comparisons

This was a reader request! I’ve got my Too Faced Chocolate Palette comparisons, where I talk about the Bon Bon Palette, Semi-Sweet Palette, the Original Chocolate Bar Palette and I even threw in the Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette. I reswatched all of these in one sitting and identical lighting conditions. They’re swatched on bare skin.

Chocolate Bon Bons is my favorite of the 3 (.42 oz product). It has 8 good matte/satin-matte shades including

  • Earl Grey (blue-toned charcoal grey satin matte)
  • Pecan Praline (light grey taupe matte)
  • Cashew Chew (light pink taupe satin-matte)
  • Bordeaux (dark burgundy brown matte)
  • Almond Truffle (dark pink taupe, deeper than Cashew Chew)
  • Mocha (warm chocolate brown matte)
  • Divinity (pale creamy ivory matte)
  • Malted (dark chocolate brown satin matte)

If ONLY Black Currant was a real purple. The light taupes and pinks really work well on my skintone. Totally Fetch is fun, even if it’s not as intense as the original shade. My hooded eyes are grateful for the mattes. If you love how you look in pink tones and taupes, you’ll find this flattering.

Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar is my next favorite. (.56 oz product). It has some good mattes / matte-satins.

  • Peanut Butter (warm orangey brown matte)
  • Puddin’ (cool midtone brown matte)
  • Coconut Crème (warm creamy light beige matte)
  • Nougat (warm creamy peachy beige matte)
  • Mousse (warm light milky brown matte)
  • Truffled (warm milk chocolate brown matte)
  • Cocoa Chili (dark brown mostly matte with little gold glimmers)
  • Licorice (black matte)

Blueberry Swirl is pretty, if subtle. I like Pink Sugar now that I’ve found the appropriate way to use it – for layering.  It has some gorgeous colors to bring out my blue-green eyes, like Caramel (golden copper metallic) Bon Bon (peachy copper metallic), Peanut Butter. If you look good in orangey coppers or cool/neutral browns you’ll love this. As you can tell from the top row, it has all the staple neutrals you’ll need, and some fun shimmery shades too.

Original Chocolate Bar (.62 oz product). It’s my least favorite. Several of the shades have to be built up. Not as many mattes. Too many midtone browns that just go muddy on me.

  • White Chocolate (matte light beige)(wish this was lighter)
  • Salted Caramel (peachy brown matte)(love this)
  • Milk Chocolate (milky medium brown matte)
  • Semi-Sweet (deeper than midtone brown matte)
  • Strawberry Bon Bon (light pink matte)(chalky)
  • Triple Fudge (dark brown matte)

I love Candied Violet (smoky purple), Cherry Cordial (deep burgundy) and Black Forest Truffle (smoky plum) but they’re not the easiest shades to work with. Marzipan (light rose gold), Champagne Truffe (iridescent pink) and Salted Caramel are my favorites from this palette. If shimmering browns, golden browns and chocolatey browns are your favorite colors to wear, this is the palette for you. It’s just not for me, as I struggled to make the shades work.

Peanut Butter & Jelly ($36 for .39 oz.) 4 of the 9 shades are mattes.

  • Extra Creamy (creamy light beige matte)(my favorite base shade)
  • Peanut Butter (orangey brown matte)
  • Spread the Love (peachy matte with subtle gold shimmer that doesn’t really show up on the skin)
  • Nuts About U (reddish orange matte)

Jelly is really pretty, but sheer and has to be built up. It benefits from a purple base. It reminds me a little of MAC Stars n’ Rockets, except Too Faced is cruelty free, where MAC is not. Bananas is great for layering at the center for a golden halo look.  I wish instead of Peanut Butter Cup we had another ‘jelly’ type shade. I wish Jammin’ was more of a true purple. This palette is an excellent value for the price, in my opinion.

  • My favorite one is the original one – I immediately shied away from Semi-Sweet because I look awful in warm/copper/rusty tones like that. I am intrigued by the Bon Bons, that’s got a lot of great cooler tones for me!

  • I think I’m gonna take the plunge and buy chocolate Bon bons! Have you gotten your hands on the sweet peach palette/ if not are you interested in buying???

    • I spent from 3am EST to 5:30 am EST trying to buy the Peach Palette from the Too Faced website. Unfortunately for me, their site kept crashing on me and I couldn’t buy it. I was really disappointed with how that turned out.

      • Wow that’s a bummer! I hate when that happens, when you make that effort to get on there and keep trying! I am so looking forward to seeing your review when you DO buy it! That has happened to me, it was something similar to the ULTA 21 days, and I made sure I was there at the right time, so frustrating @phyrra what happened, where you able to finally purchase it?

        • Looking forward to trying the Melted Mattes too! Oh I finally tried one of the Melted Metallics, in Peony, it’s a really pretty shade!, I like it much more than the original Melted Peony, which was way too much of a “pink” on me!

      • I do think the Bon Bons Palette is my favorite of the Chocolate Bars, and thanks for the beautiful photos, because I now do see how well it would complement the PB & J! It was/or is sold out on the Too Faced site but is now available at ULTA, and another place to buy Too Faced I’ve found is Macy’s! They get the new stuff in pretty quickly!

  • Curses. Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar and Chocolate Bar and the PB & J palette all look amazinngggg.

    I’m wanting to pick up one nice palette since all of my old palettes I have are full of colors that hate me (working on revamping my makeup collection now that I actually know what works on me!)

    I was thinking I would go with UD Naked palette but these look like they may fit the bill too…. arghh. What do you think? Warm browns and golds/coppers tend to love me and most purples and pinks are full of NOPE. (I am so autumn. SO AUTUMN.)

    • I would say that Semi-Sweet is the most versatile neutral in the sense that it has almost every shade of neutral matte and it has those coppers that will look great on you.

  • This is such a useful post! I love the first two Chocolate Bare Palettes but haven’t picked up Bon Bons yet.

  • Ah I needed this! I still want to try one of these palettes so this comparison is more than welcome. The first two are my favourites as well! When I get to the States in a few months, I’ll take one with me 😀 Thank you!

  • My most used is the original Chocolate Bar but that’s mainly because I’ve had it so long. I haven’t used the Bon Bons enough yet. Thanks for these outstanding swatches. I wish I could fly down to Florida for swatching and photo lessons!

  • Thank you for this comparison of the various Too Faced palettes. These are really popular palettes and there seems to be quite an overlap of colours (warm, neutral browns). This is another great guide for makeup lovers.

  • I actually own all of these which is rare for me when it comes to palettes like these. I love all of them and each time I use one I think that one is my favorite. This is a great post!

  • Great job comparing the palettes. This will be a handy guide for people. I love them all, and don’t know if I can pick a favorite. Luckily, the original Chocolate Bar doesn’t go muddy on me. That’s why I chose it over Naked or Naked 2. Those medium-dark cooler browns are always so tricky on fair skin, though.

    I haven’t gotten to play too much with my PB & J palette yet. I’ll try to do a warm brown & aubergine look for soon and post on Facebook.

  • Your swatches are so incredible. And as I mentioned before, I absolutely adore the look you created with the Bon Bons palette & MUG – too beautiful!
