Recently I was asked, What is the Best Too Faced Palette? Since Too Faced has so many palettes available right now – Sweet Peach, Cat Eyes, Country, Sugar Pop, Natural Matte, Natural Eyes, Chocolate Bon Bons, Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Chocolate, White Chocolate Chip, totally Cute, Boudoir Eyes, Matte Chocolate Chip, and Peanut Butter and Jelly, I can understand feeling overwhelmed at the choices!
What is the Best Too Faced Palette?
Last year I compared the Original Chocolate Bar, Semi-Sweet Chocolate, and Chocolate Bon Bons to see which I liked best. I reviewed and compared the Peanut Butter & Jelly palette. I also reviewed and compared the Sweet Peach palette.
What I want out of a Too Faced palette is versatility, so for me it comes down to Chocolate Bon Bons and Semi-Sweet Chocolate bar. Chocolate Bon Bons is a pink-based palette, while Semi-Sweet is your staple neutrals palette. The original Chocolate Bar and Sweet Peach are both out of the running for me because they contain too many brown shades that turn muddy on my pale skin.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar
Semi-Sweet has a ton of good mattes – Coconut Creme, Nougat, Peanut Butter, Mousse, Puddin’, Truffled, Cocoa Chili and Licorice.
Pink Sugar looks amazing layered on top of Blueberry Swirl and Licorice. In fact, one of my favorite easy smoky looks can be recreated with Licorice on the lid and hood in the smoky dome shape, then pop the duochrome Pink Sugar onto the lid.
Ultimately though, this palette still has too many brown shades to be flattering on my pale skin. Those brown shades go muddy on me if you blink, so I find them difficult to work with.
Chocolate Bon Bons Palette
Chocolate Bon Bons is much more my style. Shades like Divinity, Cashew Chew, and Pecan Praline are great transitional colors on my pale skin. The pinks, peach, and pinky taupes are very flattering. They’re also easy for me to use.
My hooded eyes really appreciate the eight matte shades – Earl Grey, Malted, Mocha, Bordeaux, Almond Truffle, Pecan Praline, Cashew Chew and Divinity. Satin Sheets is gorgeous for layering on top of Sprinkles, Cotton Candy, Totally Fetch, and Cafe Au Lait.
While both palettes have a good mix of mattes versus shimmer for my hooded eyes, the color scheme in Chocolate Bon Bons is overall more flattering with my pale skin and blue-green eyes. This makes Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons is the clear winner for me!
