Did the Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons set catch your eye this season?  Is it on your wish list?  Did you know that there’s an even bigger set that includes the delectable Shadow Bon Bons?

Too Faced Confection Collection is one of the biggest deals (steals!) this holiday season.  With a value of USD $234.00, this set retails for only USD $95.00.  It includes:

  • 12 eyeshadows
  • Lashgasm Mascara
  • Deluxe Shadow Insurance Candlelight
  • 3 Eyeshadow Brushes
  • La Creme Color Drenched Lip Cream in Fuchsia Shock
  • Perfect Lips liner in Perfect Pink
  • Reusable Tote

The fuzzy pastel packaging is not a favorite of mine.  But the cardboard housing with magnetic closure is.  No chipped manicures here!

The twelve eyeshadows included in Shadow Bon Bons are soft and very sweet.  They color pay-off is completely buildable making the shades more versatile.  While the lashGasm Mascara is full-size, I would prefer to see a Perfect Eyes Perfect Espresso eyeliner.  I feel that mascara needs are too unique to each person but eyeliner formulas work across the board.  The Shadow Insurance Candlelight is the perfect base for holiday eyes.

lashGasm Mascara comes with a flexible rubbery brush, much like Cover Girl Lash Blast. I’ve noticed this style tends to work better for sparse lashes.

Major bonus points for suggested applications instructions!

The eye brushes included are cruelty-free and very soft.  They work best for a light application.  My favorite is the crease brush for blending harsh lines.

The collection is pulled together with a lip liner and lipstick.  Fuchsia Shock was on my wish list and is the icing on the cake to this already fully-stocked set.

Vanilla / Cut the Cake / Framboise / Coffee Bean

Peach Fuzz / Hot Cocoa / Candy Rose / Lovey Dovey

Nude Beach / Cinnamon Sugar / Marzipan / Licorice Latté

Perfect Pink / Fuchsia Shock / Shadow Insurance Candlelight vs. Urban Decay Sin Primer

The shadow pigmentation is much lighter in comparison to the Smokey Eye Collection, also by Too Faced (swatches here).  However, with a stiffer brush, they are all buildable.  My favorite shades are Vanilla, Framboise, Hot Cocoa, Cinnamon Sugar, and Licorice Latté.  I know that’s a lot, but they’re so pretty!  And of course, Fuchsia Shock is a winner for me.  I also prefer Shadow Insurance Candlelight’s yellow tint over Urban Decay Sin’s pink hue.

Too Faced Confection Collection is an unbelievable value and incredible introduction to the line.  For a smaller set, I highly recommend Shadow Bon Bons.  But for a true makeup junkie, it makes an excellent holiday gift.  Thanks Mr. M!
