Too Faced The Little Black of Bronzers will set you back $139 but it’s actually a significant savings as purchasing each of these bronzers separately will cost you $240 bucks!

Jerrod Blandino’s sister was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma and he was inspired to create the most beautiful bronzers possible because of this to give all women a chance to get a gorgeous golden tan safely. 12 years later and Jerrod’s sister is happy and healthy!

As testimony to his passion to give woman (and men) a chance to get a safe golden glow, Too Faced offers the biggest selection of powder bronzers in color, texture, and finish to choose from in the makeup world. Too Faced has donated nearly $100,000 to the Melanoma Research Foundation to fund skin cancer education! Too Faced will donate $1 from every single bronzer purchase in May to this foundation!

Some of Too Faced’s bronzers have a massive cult following such as their chocolate scented Soleil bronzers that are shimmer free and offer an option to go lighter or darker with your glow. Or if you’re more about a radiant bronzer you can choose Snow Bunny or Pink Leopard to get a golden luminous glow. Need longer wear? Too Faced Endless Summer Bronzer offers up to 16 hours of wear! This is truly the bronzer palette to end all bronzer palettes as it includes finishes from matte to luminous, color selections from light to darker, and textures that range from buttery smooth to soft and silky. You want options? The Little Black Book of Bronzer has plenty of those!

I’ve reviewed and used many of these bronzers in the past. They all have a silky smooth, easy to blend formula that wears long without accentuating my drier skin. If you’d like more detailed reviews on each please see my Too Faced archives!

Now it is pretty darn big! Dare I say bulky…! It’ll be hard to store, hard to travel with, and it’ll probably be a pain if you apply your makeup in the bathroom as it’ll take some extra room on your vanity counter and you might struggle juggling with it during application.


If you’re an absolute fiend for bronzer I have a funny feel this palette is going to be an absolute dream for you!

So feed your bronzer addition with a full collection of Too Faced Bronzers!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Ugh … I keep going back and forth on whether or not I need this in my life. I actually DON’T currently own ANY bronzers which makes me lean towards the YES I DO side of things … In anticipation I went to Sephora and personally swatched a lot of these bronzers and now I think I most definitely will be adding it to my collection!

    Any ideas WHEN in May this will launch?!

    • Isabella Muse

      they didn’t give me an exact date vicki! but hopefully shortly! I’ll let ya know as soon as it pops πŸ™‚

    • krankenheim

      No bronzers?! Awee! This Little Black Book would be a great way to try some new stuff to see what works best for you. But I think a great starter bronzer is the It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc. If you buy it from QVC it comes with the Jumbo Heavenly Luxe Mega-Brush. The brush itself is $58. You get the duo from QVC for less than $50 and the set just came back in stock a few days ago. It won’t last! It’s worth every penny just for the brush but the product itself is pretty much goof-proof! Muse posted swatches of the face disk here: Just search QVC’s site for the set, it’s item # A228774.

  • sara

    mmm…already drowning in bronzers, some of which are Too Faced… I dunno, for $140 I can think of better things to buy……Maybe a collector would buy this? Pretty to look at though:)

  • Cindy

    Oh my gosh! I just got the Bonjour Soleil Bronzing Wardrobe and love it so much–totally changed my opinion on bronzers. Now I really want this one xD

  • Tousled Elegance

    Even though I don’t use bronzers, I must admit these are really pretty and the packaging is adorable! Someone out there is gonna love this, for sure!

  • Kary

    Tons of people have uploaded this but no one had done an actual review.. This review is AWESOME and honestly, I wasnΒ΄tΒ΄even sure they were bronzers haha I thought it was a book.

    I just bought the Bonjour Soleil palette and the Leopard Bronzer so this may be too much? Is it that big? I just LOOVEE all Too Faced bronzers but 159 dollars… it hurts a little.

    What do you think Muse? I need help! πŸ˜›

    • Isabella Muse

      hey kary! How are you? Thanks πŸ™‚ I didn’t get into details on each bronzer because they have all been reviewed in details in past posts but if you need links give a yell. Honestly…it’s hard to say! Do you use bronzer a lot!? If so you might want to indulge. This is A LOT of bronzer! Each one is full size! The Bonjour Palette for the average user in my opinion is plenty enough…! However, there are folks out there that use bronzer daily on their face to not only add color but to contour, if you’re one of those girl’s you might just want to go with this. IT IS BIG! It’s the size of a coffee table book, Here’s a link for an image that shows a mac full size blush on top so you can an idea for the dimension of the palette: and I find the size a little intimidating because it’s hard to store and kinda hard to use in the bathroom if you do your makeup in the bathroom the way I do! But I’d say GO for it if you love bronzer…! I see this as being a massive must have for bronzer fans…It’s actually $139! Not $159! πŸ˜€

      • Kary

        OMG u are right about the price. I am a huge bronzer fan. I am SO tempted. I only have 1 more question.. does the packaging get dirty easily? Like can I clean it up easily? I love packaging like the Bonjour and Chocolate Bar Palette because It cleans like a charm but Lorac and Nars drives me insane haha.. So I would realllly like to know because it can only be bought online and will probably sell out in like 15 min πŸ˜›


        • Isabella Muse

          If you’re a huge bronzer fan go for it. No…not really, it’s a sturdy cardboard and when you swipe a brush into it you might get some on the outer ages but it easily dusts away! It’s not a magnet for finger prints or dirt/grime the way say nars packaging is! I think it should be ok! For example I swatched all the shades and I swiped into a few shades with my brush and it still looks new, no messy powder to clean up anything! There might have been some smearing around the wells of the bronzer but that wipes away easily! If you hate it you can always return it free via sephora which helps! πŸ™‚

            I wish they made it so each bronzer could be popped out individually. That would’ve made it more practical and attractive to me at this price point. It just isn’t portable the way it is. Of course, this is not a concern for all gals, but I do think it would be nice to have options. And how cute would that be- for each day of the week to be able to throw into my makeup bag and create the suggested look in the book?

  • Sissi

    Oh wow! This looks fantastic. I feel like I need it but on the other hand this does not exactly fit in my purse looool!!! πŸ˜‰

  • Crystal

    This is adorable! I love the idea and the packaging. I probably won’t pick this up because I do my makeup in the bathroom too and have very little counter space so this won’t work well.

  • Allison

    This is a bit much for me, but I do really love the story behind it and the reason it was created

  • Veronica

    Their bronzers run too warm for me, but this is a great value product. I could see MUAs in particular getting some real use out of this.

  • Quinctia

    I would totally want this if it were smaller, had smaller pans, and was a bit cheaper.

    I already have too much bronzer, given my frequency of wearing it, but I’d love to try several of Too Faced’s.

    I do love the Chocolate Bronzer lipgloss I have of theirs…it smells just like hot cocoa powder, haha.

  • Colleen

    Great review. Thank you so much for the comparison photo with the MAC blush. The too faced book is huge. Now I know I wouldn’t use it because it would be a pain to get in and out of storage.

  • Brigette Ramos

    Holy mother of bronzers! I need this in my life. I love Too Faced Bronzers and I love that they are doing $1 donations… AMAZING POST! <3

  • Linda

    Muse! I never cared much for Bronzer but seeing how much it warms up your face and how good it looks on you, I bought the bonjour palette. Fortunately for me, you and I have similar coloring so I can always tell how something is going to look on me by how it looks on you! Can’t use all these shimmery shades so I’ll pass on this one, but I’m having fun with the bonjour palette.

    • Isabella Muse

      YAY thanks Linda I’m pretty flattered you purchased bc you liked the way it looked on me πŸ™‚ Enjoy it!!!!!!! I think the bonjour paette is ideal as this is pretty big and impractical!

  • Nikki

    I am so excited for this to come out!!! I love too faced bronzers!!! I have 4 bronzing palettes from them : The Bronzed and The Beautiful( sun bunny, pink leopard & snow bunny)The Bronzed and The Beautiful: French Rivierra edition( chocolate soleil, sun bunny, a LE snow bunny), the leopard love complexion perfection kit (has peach leopard, candy leopard-which are exclusive to this palette and pink leopard) and lastly the Bonjour Soleil Limited Edition Summer Bronzing Wardrobe( sun bunny chocolate soleil and snow bunny). I also have a full sized chocolate soleil and milk chocolate soleil as well as a some bronzer that were included in palettes and the 2 bronzers that are included in the no makeup makeup face palette and the natural face natural radiance face palette (I don’t really use the bronzers in the 2 face palettes that much) so um yeah did I mention I’m obsessed with TF bronzers…?!?! I wish they would say the day these will be available I MUST have it!!! I hope I’m able to purchase it before it sells out!! I’ve been stalking the sephora website, Ulta website and too faced website!! Sorry for the ramble, I do have a question in regards to book/palette/set etc., since the book is so huge and could be difficult to store do you think there is anyway the bronzers could be depoted.and stored In a z-palette?? Thanks for the wheel peak, swatches and review Muse or should I call you Isabella(beautiful name btw!!) as always I love reading your blog! You Rock!!! πŸ™‚

  • LisaO

    I have no interest in bronzers but love the packaging! One of the reasons I love the Too Faced brand!!
    Bronzers % BB creams are a few of the make up products that just seem useless to me. I’m very pale & live in PA so that explains it all!!
