Review and Swatches of Too Faced's Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette3:05 PM
This is hands down the absolute best palette that Too Faced has ever released, and it is one of my all time favorites. It has the same formula as the chocolate bar palettes, but somehow these seem better. This palette was inspired by the color Peanut Butter, which is in the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette.
- Spread the Love: matte peach base with gold sparkle
- Peanut Butter: matte orange brown
- Nuts About You: matte warm brown. It is darker and more red than Peanut Butter.
- Jelly: shimmery orchid
- Jammin': plum brown with gold sparkle
- Bananas: shimmery soft gold
- Extra Creamy: matte beige
- Peanut Butter Cup: metallic bronze with gold sparkle
- Peanut Brittle: metallic burnt orange

Like the chocolate bar palettes and bronzers, Too Faced infused these shadows with cocoa powder. Not only does this make the shadows smell heavenly, it gives them a boost of skin friendly antioxidants. Now back to that smell. I have heard some people say this palette smells like peanut butter. I think it smells just like the other chocolate bar palettes, but more on par with the Bon Bons palette because it isn't too intense.
In typical Too Faced fashion, the packaging is adorable. The packaging looks like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with purple lipstick. Cute, right? It is also in a magnetized tin, which is fantastic. It is sturdy and good for travel. It also comes with a little booklet that has mini pictorials for three different looks: Soft and Sweet, Rich and Creamy, and PB&J. The eyeshadows are organized into trios. So the first three shadows (Spread the Love, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Cup) make up Soft and Sweet. Rich & Creamy is comprised of Bananas, Peanut Brittle, and Jammin'. The finally three shades, Extra Creamy, Jelly, and Nuts About You are used in the PB&J look.
This has become my favorite palette. I reach for warm toned browns a lot because they make my eyes pop. The quality of these shadows is fantastic and that makes the $36 price point well worth it. It is only available at Ulta and the Too Faced site.
If you have been on the fence about it, just get it. You will not regret it. There is a good reason everyone is talking about it.
