Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches: This another palette that has been on the Limited Edition list, that’s been re-released, and the owners have said it will be added to their permanent range. So many people (including myself) are happy at this news, as it sold out very quickly, and the only way to buy it since, has been on eBay at a considerable mark-up (I ended up paying AU$110 for mine, including postage, and it came with a proof of purchase).
So, without further ado, it’s Peanut Butter Jelly time!

How to use the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Collection
You can either apply the shadows with a brush, sponge applicator or your finger (which changes the pigmentation picked up and applied). You’ll improve the application and wearing by applying a primer beforehand (either a full face or eyeshadow primer), and finishing with a setting spray to help lock it in for the day.
In detail Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches and My Experience
Can I just say, wow? Pigmented shade, after pigmented shade, luscious colour after luscious colour. The two palest shades applied smoothly but did need a little encouragement to work. I am already planning out my next look, looking at all the shades and how well they compliment one another. I feel like even without the How-To Glamour Guide, I’d have no troubles doing so many looks. I ran my eyes over it just now and I could pick out a dozen looks, in a minute. Some people might be afraid to use the purple shades, especially Jelly as its quite bright and pigmented, but it works well with all of the autumn shades none the less.
They don’t include a brush, which isn’t necessarily a problem, as I prefer to use my own brushes anyway, and find most included brushes in palettes aren’t as good as the ones you buy. It might be convenient for those using it for travel, to remove the necessary for packing brushes (I take a travel set with me, from BH Cosmetics which work well and aren’t too big).
Applying them was so easy, and I didn’t have all powder fallout problems either in pan or on face. They’re very buttery, so go easy and they’ll glide on smoothly each and every time.
Packaging and Formula
The packaging is so sweet: the little raised slice of bread with purple lips and little eyelashes, on a background of little cartoon peanuts.
For those with peanut allergies, never fear; the little smiling sandwich appears again on the back to let you know that you’ve nothing to fear, and that it does not contain any peanuts (good to know!) As someone with allergies (all nuts EXCEPT peanuts, go figure), I have to be very conscious of the makeup I wear and what it contains (some brands use almond oil or other nut-based fillers), and I felt like it was a nice touch. What this does have is cocoa powder, and a little something to it, that does smell a lot like a peanut butter sandwich.
Smell is amazing; it does smell very cocoa-scented, but it does have a nutty, bread smell to it on top of that. Too Faced has really carved a niche as high-end fun, feminine and cute, with sweet scents.
The feel is so buttery and has very little in the way of fallout in the pan, and nothing on my face, which is fantastic. I usually get ready fast in the morning, and I don’t always have time to be slow and steady, so it’s great I can use this on those mornings.

The MBF Makeup Look with Too Faced PB&J Palette
I did the ‘PB&J’ look from the Style guide
1. Primer on the eyelids (Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer)
2. Extra creamy to brow bone
3. Press Jelly into lid and smudge to lower lash line
4. Blend Nuts About U into crease and lower lash line.
I topped it with a bright lip (Revlon Matte Balm, 260 ‘Passionate’), for a fun summery look.
Pros of Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette
• Compact size for travel
• Good sized mirror
• Cute packaging
• Complimentary selection of shades
• No powder fallout
Cons of Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette
• Two shades need building
• Doesn’t have a brush
This palette is my jam. It has it all; nudes and neutrals for day to day looks, a pop of fun colour, a luxe gold, and a dark smoky plum for an evening look. For such a small palette, it’s so versatile, and would work for cool-toned or warm-toned skin types, as the browns have a nice red-tone to them.
This a must-have for any discerning makeup connoisseur’s makeup bag, at home or away.
Will I Buy Again?
Definitely! Now it’s been added to their list of permanent products and I won’t have to deal with re-sellers who charge twice what it’s priced from the official websites.
It’s going to be nice to be able to buy this at the fair price that Too Faced set.
• Don’t forget to pack a brush / brush set when traveling with it
• Use primer before and a setting spray after to prolong wear
