It’s Peanut Buttah Jelly time; hey ya, hey ya….juuuuust kiiiiidding! This little treat just won’t stay in stock, will it!? I can see why: These little tin palettes from Too Faced cosmetics are fun as it is but when you take one of the most coveted shades (peanut butter) and then build an entire palette around it, add the adorably quirky, fun packaging and the scent of peanut butter cups; it’s bound to be a hit!
I am a huge Too Faced fan as it is. Way back when, when I was first getting in to higher end makeup and trying new things, my husband purchased for me, several of the Too Faced ‘The Quickie Chronicles’ palettes. Who else remembers these? They were really cute and fun with pin up style prints on the packaging and contained 3 shadows, a blush and 4 glosses. I honestly can’t remember the year these first came out but it had to be 10+ years ago that I first got mine. Too faced palettes have clearly come a long way since then with the old packaging of sturdy, glossy cardboard to the metal/tin versions of today…not to mention the quality; but one thing that remains is what a fun and innovative brand it is. To the Palette!
In the Box
Above are just a couple of basic photos of the palette in and out of the box.
Included ‘Looks’ Foldout
Now that we can all clearly see how adorable the palette is; let’s talk more about the content.
The palette is in a sturdy tin, like all of the others and has a mirror. It also comes with a fold out card with instructions to create a few different looks with the included shades. The palette contains 9 shades; 4 matte, 5 shimmer. Upon opening you immediately catch a whiff of the palettes’ scent; a cocoa similar to other chocolate themed Too Faced products, spiked with a hint of peanut butter. It’s like a peanut butter cup! Because I do not own the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar collection that originated the ‘peanut butter’ shade; I decided I must have this palette. I must say; it’s not what I expected the shade to look like but I love it as I do every single other shade in this palette. These shades and the formula are really great: smooth, velvet(y), most went on almost creamy. The pigment was excellent and the only shade that seemed a bit powdery and in need of layers was the extra creamy, which went on my actual eye much better than on my arm swatch. The shades stayed put throughout the day with very little fading. For me, this little gem was everything I wanted it to be and I definitely recommend it to both Too Faced fans and newbies alike.
Gorgeous, right? I’m mad for Bananas and Jelly…spread the love…Oh, I just love them all!
