It’s Thursday beauties! That means, it’s time for another makeup review. This week, we are looking at the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette that launched recently.
This is a 9 eyeshadow pan palette that is sold on Too Faced’s website as well as on Ulta. It retails for $36.
Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly
The packaging of this is adorable! It’s really what suckered me into it in the first place.
I also love that it smells like a combination of peanut butter and chocolate. If you are familiar with their other palettes, you will know that they all smell like chocolate because they are their signature “cocoa powder eyeshadows”. This has a slightly different smell than those do. If you haven’t yet, just go into Ulta and take a whiff of one of these palettes! I promise, no one there will think you’re weird.
The colors in this palette are exactly what you would expect, a combination of warm brown shades and purples mixed in with some additional shades for different looks.
There are 3 matte shades, 3 metallic shades, and 3 shades with shimmer in them. These are listed by rows across, as they are seen in the photo above.
- Spread the Love is a light peach with some gold sparkle. Again, the sparkle you can’t really pick up on once it’s blended out. It doesn’t have huge glitter flecks or anything. Beautiful for a transition or base shade.
- Peanut Butter is a matte medium orange brown, your true shade of peanut butter. This is actually the shade that this palette was based around because it was in one of their larger palettes and everyone went crazy about it, wanting it in a single shadow. It really is a beautiful transition shade or a shade you could wear with Peanut Brittle. Yes girl!
- Peanut Butter Cup is a metallic golden bronze with gold sparkle. This shade is pretty, but I have others like it so it doesn’t make me super inspired. It would be really pretty in combination with Bananas.
- Bananas is a soft peachy gold with gold shimmer. You can hardly see the shimmer once you swatch it, and it really just turns into a more satin looking shadow. This is amazing for all over the lid with Nuts About U in the crease.
- Peanut Brittle is metallic burnt orange and it may be my favorite from this entire palette. Copper shades like this are everything!
- Jammin’ is a dark chocolate with golden sparkle. This color looks slightly purple to me once it’s blended out. The pigmentation on this particular shade is okay, although I wish they would have just made it completely matte.
- Extra Creamy is a matte creamy beige. This is perfect for blending out colors, brow bone highlight, or making a more natural lid look.
- Jelly is the only true purple in here, and it is a bright orchid color. It is really gorgeous to add a pop of color on the lower lash line after doing a warm brown look on the top
- Nuts About U is a matte reddish brown. This color gives me life! I love warm red-browns like this. It’s a gorgeous shade with excellent pigmentation.
The shadows are made to be used with the rows that they are in, but honestly, I’m a rule breaker! Use them however you want to:)
Out of the entire palette, I would say Peanut Brittle, Nuts About U, and Bananas are my favorite. I know I will get the most use out of those. But, there isn’t really a shade in here that I was disappointed in, except maybe the pigmentation on Jelly. You can build it up or use a base if you really want to get that vibrant purple out of it though.
These shadows do kick up quite a bit of powder as well, so be prepared for that, especially if you tend to be rough with your eyeshadows (I am too!).
One of the things that I will say about this, is that while the colors are gorgeous and right up my alley, they are almost all easily dupable. If you have the Morphe 35O palette that I review a while back, you really do not need both. The Too Faced is slightly better quality in my opinion, but there are almost exact matches in the Morphe palette, aside from the two purple shadows that are in this palette. You can see here some of the matches that I found, side by side with the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly shadows.
Otherwise, this palette is stunning. The warm tones are absolutely gorgeous and you can really do some fun looks with this palette! I am happy that I made the purchase. Here is a look that I did with the palette.
Extra Creamy all over the lid. Peanut Butter in the crease. Peanut Brittle all over the lid. Nuts About U to deepen the outer corner of the lid. Jelly blended out on the lower lash line with a little bit of Bananas in the inner corner.
