If there was a title awarded to the most coveted palettes in the beauty industry, Too Faced would be prom queen! The brand has been knocking it out of the park with hit after glorious hit and their most desirable peach and chocolaty shadows are hard to come by as beauty junkies go crazy for cocoa. If you aren’t sure what all the fuss is about you obviously haven’t swatched one of their luxurious pigments so let me entice you further with the delicious Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette.
Too Faced has a reputation for turning our favorite comfort foods into makeup must-haves and this beauty is no exception! The rich, irresistible shadows were inspired by the Semi-Sweet Palette which gained monumental fame on social media and quickly became a cult fave.
Each horizontal row is designed to create a different theme. The top row creates a soft effect and includes: Spread the Love (soft peach with gold sparkle), Peanut Butter (matte orangey brown) and Peanut Butter Cup (metallic bronze). The middle row is rich and creamy - Bananas (champagne shimmer), Peanut Brittle (coppery gold/ burnt orange) and Jammin’ (purple chocolate with gold shimmer). The last row is dedicated to PB & J - Extra Creamy (matte cream), Jelly (bright orchid with a magenta undertone) and Nuts About U (matte peanut buttery brown with red tones).
The texture of the shadows is rich, velvety and super decadent so they apply and blend effortlessly and the pigmentation is amazing! You can go soft, bright or bold and the colors can be enhanced to full coverage without creasing. With many of the shades I don’t even need a base but the Too Faced (world famous) Shadow Insurance Primer ($27.00) creates a smooth, silky surface for flawless, professional results. The 24 hour, waterproof formula intensifies colors and prolongs wear so pigments appear pure, saturated and gorgeous!
I love the shade selection in this palette! It provides the versatility to create a variety of trendy looks and the vibrant Jelly hue was enough to lure me in! The shade Bananas also doubles as a face highlight, simply blend onto the cheekbones and you can create a light glow or strobe away for a glamorous lustre. The only thing I would add is a deeper brown for the crease but the Peanut Butter shade also works like a charm and there is a great balance of shimmer and matte.
Like other palettes from the brand, this one is also infused with antioxidant rich coco powder so it smells delicious but doesn’t contain any actual peanuts for those concerned about allergies. The packaging is cute and compact, (about half the size of the Chocolate Bar Palettes) which makes it convenient for travel. If you are on the hunt for vivid, everyday hues then Peanut Butter and Jelly will knock your socks off and probably make you a little hungry.
The palette retails for $49.00 and you can check out the website by clicking HERE
