Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons Palette

Hey Pixi3's!  A couple of weeks ago I went all crazy about the Too Faced palette called Shadow Bon Bons, I saw other bloggers and YouTubers raving about it, and to be quite honest, I wanted a piece of that action to put on my face.

I raced out the next day to pick up the palette, if I could find it, which I did, but there was only one left! How lucky was I?  Here's some yummy pics for you to check out and as usual, my thoughts are at the bottom :)

You get - 12 eye shadows, their shadow insurance in candlelight and a full size lashgasm mascara for £32 (I bought mine in Boots)

My Thoughts

I'm really impressed with this palette.  This was the first Too Faced product I've bought, I've been lusting after so much of their stuff, so many other palettes, like their return of sexy palette, their smoky palette... and so much more!  I'm so glad I took the plunge, I've been wearing this most days since I bought it (usually with my NARS primer though as I don't always want the extra sparkle that the candlelight primer gives, as pretty as it is).  My usual combination is the stunning Peach Fuzz over the lid, then Lovey Dovey on the outer half of the lid then Licorice Latte in the crease and outer V, and Vanilla under the brow bone.

The shadows are all great quality, finely milled and very blendable, what I'd expect from Too Faced.  The mascara I know a lot don't like, yes it's not the most thickening mascara, but it is darned good.  I really like it and I've been wearing it every single day since I got the palette, so it can't be that bad eh!  The primer is great too - just not one I'd go to every day as I don't always want sparkle, but it's lovely to have a different kind of primer instead of the usual sheer cream ones.  As for the shades of shadow, I love them all and I'd wear them all.  I haven't gotten around to wearing all of them yet, but I will :)

They've met, and exceeded my expectations, now to add The Return of Sexy palette and the Smoky palette onto my Christmas list :)
