Have You Read The Little Black Book of Bronzers, by Too Faced Cosmetics?

Too Faced The Little Black Book of Bronzers

The new Too Faced The Little Black Book of Bronzers ($139)

OOH! I love coffee table books…

Wait — what’s that? It’s not a coffee table book, you say? It’s actually a limited edition $139 collectible palette with eight beststelling Too Faced powder bronzers inside?



Well I’ll be darned… From the outside it looks like a giant coffee table book, which is actually kind of ironic, because it’s called The Little Black Book of Bronzers.

Little, it is not.

IT’S HUGE!

If for some unknown reason I were forced to suddenly go incognito, I could just hide behind it because the thing is literally bigger than my head.

In the event you need to hide…

Yeah, this is probably not the kind of thing you take on a weekend jaunt, but if you did, you’d have all of your Too Faced bronzers with you in a single place, all nicely marked and arranged. You wouldn’t have to rut around in your makeup bag, which is what I usually end up doing.

Like any good book, this one has a compelling story…

A story of bronzers and adventure starring you. :)

In one chapter, it’s Friday, and you’re wearing Beach Bunny and playing hooky from work. In another, you’re wearing Chocolate Soleil on the day you give your career-changing presentation in front of the board.

Later that night, you wear Bronzed & Poreless on your date with that certain boy (or girl).

** SPOILER ALERT** This book is an online exclusive, so you won’t find it on bookshelves or stores. Expect a very limited supply at toofaced.com, sephora.com and ulta.com in May.

As pricey as it sounds, the book actually represents a significant savings, as Too Faced bronzers are normally $30 a pop, so if you were to buy all eight of these individually (they’re all from the permanent line), you’d be looking at $240, versus the $139 the book costs.

That’s a savings of $101, and all of the pans in it are full size.

There’s a good mix of mattes and shimmers here, and all eight bronzers seem to have the same texture, finish and wear time I’m used to from the brand.

The bronzers in the book…

  • Endless Summer 16-Hour Long-Wear Bronzer: A universal bronze with a subtle shimmer that lasts all day
  • Sun Bunny: A split pan with a warm silky gold on one side and a pinkish bronze on the other; when you mix the two together you get a natural glow without any orange undertones.
  • Milk Chocolate Soleil: Totally smells like chocolate, yum! A matte light brown bronzer suited for pale to medium skin tones.
  • Chocolate Soleil: Another yummy chocolate scented bronzer. A matte bronzer for medium to deep skin tones.
  • Sun Bunny: Mix the four shades in this bronzer — which has a golden bronze, delicate pink, white and fawn shimmer — for a healthy glow. I use this as a highlighter.
  • Bronzed & Poreless: A matte medium bronze that minimizes the look of pores.
  • Pink Leopard: A bronze with golden pink shimmer. Works great as either a blush or highlighter.
  • Beach Bunny: Like a warmer, more golden version of Snow Bunny, this bronzer has four illuminating shades — a bronze, a soft peach, golden ivory and golden tan

The size definitely makes this un-travel-friendly, but that’s not really the point. If you’ve been waiting for something BIG — literally HUGE — to make the jump to using bronzers on a regular basis, and you want a lot to choose from, check out the book.

Also…it’s cute! I like how when you open it, there are descriptions with little drawings of different places and scenarios where you could wear each of the bronzers.

Great for makeup-loving writers, perhaps…

It really does look like a cute coffee table book.

Oh, and don’t tell Tabs, but I’m crushing pretty hard on the teeny pup in the corner, awww!

    Ummmm what?! This is the craziest product I have ever seen lol! There’s no way I could hide this from the hubby haha. “What new makeup???”

  2. Nancy says:

    LOL I love that it’s called the “Little” black book of bronzers. Holy craperdoodles that thing is huge. I want it.

  3. Elena says:

    I have 5 of these bronzers already…but I love the cute little doggy in the corner of the box! I don’t know where I could store a palette this huge….it’s awesome though!

  4. Carly says:

    I am DYING for this! I think I’ll just indulge in snow bunny instead and then go cry in a corner because I can’t shell out $139 in one sitting right now. ;_;

  5. Miki says:

    As much as I love that they’re selling a collection, I wish the bronzers could be popped out and taken individually in a makeup bag or something. The size just seems impractical…even to just be sitting at home.

    • Jisu Kim says:

      That is such a good idea ! I wish they really did that then it would make me want it and maybe be able to justify buying it

  6. Sylirael says:

    I think, for those out there that are medium (and warm) in skintone, and want to step into the world of bronzers, contours and bronzer-blushes, this is an absolutely fabulous idea! It would make a wonderful gift for such a person!

    Sadly, although I am keen to try my hand at contouring, and might be persuaded to attempt a slight warming up of my face, because I’m a cool-toned vampire this palette (?) would be a bit of overkill, LOL.

    I still kind of want it, though ;-)

    That is some serious value, if you don’t already own most of these! (speaking as someone living in a country where a single bronzer from a company like Too Faced would cost probably >$50)

    I am such a bronzer fiend this is right up my street!! wish all my favourite bronzers from all brands somehow magically conspire to writ a similar book! :p

    Wow, when I saw that first picture I thought the size was blown up! I don’t use bronzer nearly enough to buy this, but I wish I did so I had an excuse to! I love the packaging, they all look so purty in there!

  9. Ashleigh says:

    The swatches are actually surprising. Having seen separate reviews on all of these bronzers, I pretty much expected the swatches to be more or less the same. But there are some different ones in there for sure. The descriptions and packaging is super cute though, it would be fun if they did this palette in blush form too.

  10. Toni says:

    Oh wow, I don’t care about the size I need one now, haha xxx

  11. Sunny says:

    Haha wait, they call this little? There is nothing little about it!

    Looks like you basically have enough bronzers for a lifetime or two with this! I kinda wish they did a smaller, trial-sized version though. That would be a great way to figure out exactly which of their bronzing offerings work for each individual’s skin tone/preferences.

    Gyaaaaa srsly that thing is flippin’ HUGE! I’m really new to bronzers, if you could do a tutorial for each of these, that would be insanely helpful! <3

  13. grlnxdor says:

    This is ridonkulous! I mean really, I think this is the first time I’ve ever been both thrilled(the possibilities are endless) and horrified(where the hell would you store it) at the same time!

  14. Woah, that thing is BIG! :-O I am quite intrigued by it though. And I kinda want it…

    I love all the Bunny ones! They give a really nice glow! But who the heck needs all that bronzer? Lol I mean it’s seriously a lot and it’s HUGE! I can’t even imagine slapping that thing on my vanity and trying to do my makeup with it lol

    This pallete look and seems great! I’ve been wanting to get the limited edition Anastia contour kit, it’s a friendlier price. This kit looks like a great investment to be honest.x

    I LOVE this! If I didn’t already own all of their bronzers I would definitely be getting this!

  19. Jessie says:

    Wow! That is HUGE! I wonder why they didn’t make the bronzers half the size or something? I feel like you’d still be getting a lot, and they could lower the price too if they did that.

  20. Gosshh.. thats such a lovely collection of all the bronzers packed in the best ever packaging.. :D
    that puppy is really cute .. :D

    Although this is quite huge, it’s a great idea! I wish more brands would release “book” style palettes.

  22. Allison says:

    Woah, I thought that a blush palette was a bit much, but this is crazy! Crazy awesome though! I shouldn’t buy it, but it would be so cool to own all the shades I’ve lusted after instead of having to prioritize due to budget.

    Ohhh man! This looks incredible…probably not practical for me in terms of size. But it’s so pretty!

  24. Marcela says:

    I would love to own all these bronzers but this palette is sooooo huge!

  25. Raquel says:

    If I depot these bronzers, will they all fit in the Mac double sided palette?

  26. Emilie says:

    This is so cute! I love the little illustrations and the descriptions. I wish they included a how to apply/wear booklet like they do for eyeshadow palettes for us bronzer dummies, and if they had included one compact that you could pop the pans in and out of for on the go or traveling. Pretty to look at, great deal, but doesn’t look that practical for actually using the bronzers. I really like the look of Beach Bunny and Endless Summer – I have a mini Milk Chocolate Soleil coming my way in the mail right now, can’t wait to try it! :)
