Are you all ready for Spring? I have some odd feelings towards Spring. I like early Spring when it’s still cooler and I can layer, but my allergies do not enjoy Spring. It’s my worst season as an asthmatic. I will say that the Winter in my city was not so great and felt like Spring most days, so maybe the transition will be easier.
Today, I want to share a new eyeshadow palette with you all! Yes, momma did a bit too much shopping. I saw little sneak peaks of this palette floating around on Instagram before it was released, and I had convinced myself I didn’t need it. Well, then Too Faced sent out a 20% off code and offered a deluxe sized Better than Sex mascara (my holy grail) and a lipstick with any purchase, and I caved.
The one blogger that kind of convinced me this would be fun to play around with was Jkissa. I love how she put the purple in the inner corner, and I thought it was a fun twist on a warm toned look!
Now, warm toned shadows were not my thing a year ago. I was a cool gal all the way. I’ve since expanded my horizons and I’ve learned to take any warm palette and grunge it up a bit. There’s something about a warm grungy smokey eye that is so timeless to me.
Anyway, on to the actual palette. This is a limited edition palette from Too Faced that can be found on their website or on Ulta’s website. I don’t know if it’s in Ulta stores yet, or if it will be. This palette looks like the other small tin palettes from Too Faced, which we all know I love and still use quite often.
What I like about many of these tin palettes are that they are adorable, and the ones I have can be used for everyday looks and night time looks. The packaging is travel friendly as well.
This palette retails at $36, which is the same price as all the other 9 shade tin palettes.
Right off the bat, I love the shade variety in this palette. There are purples, oranges, a gold, peach, and even a white shade that can work on the brow bone. There are two matte “transition” shades that can be worn separately or used together. That’s going to make this palette versatile, and it’ll be easy for even beginners to create looks without it being too intimidating. Sometimes we all just need to go back to the basics.
Second, look at that freakin packaging. Hands down the cutest palette Too Faced has released so far, in my opinion.
Too Faced is known for releasing cute products, which is why I don’t mind spending a bit more money on them. If I’m going to spend decent money on a product, I would prefer for it to be aesthetically pleasing. This also makes it a nice collector’s piece.
This palette is supposed to smell like peanut butter, which actually sets it apart from the other tin palettes. However, I think it smells more like chocolate.
Of course, every shade is reminiscent of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I will admit I have never been a fan of bananas on my peanut butter sandwiches though. I also like crunchy peanut butter over creamy, and strawberry jelly over grape.
As for swatches, these were done over no primer. The shades swatches very easily and felt super smooth, which is something I experience often with Too Faced shadows in general.
From the wrist down: Nuts about you, Jelly, Extra Creamy, Jammin, Peanut Brittle, Bananas, Peanut Butter Cup, Peanut Butter, Spread the Love
What I love about this palette: Great pigmentation, smooth shades, several mattes for transition, a pop of color, a matte white to highlight, blends easily
What I don’t love: Spread the love was the only shade that didn’t blow me away. It’s pretty sheer, but it’ll probably look lovely layered over another shade.
I did create a look with this palette last week and paired it with the Natural Matte palette. If you have the Natural Matte palette, the Peanut Butter and Jelly one will pair perfectly with it!
Here I used a lot of the shades and used Bananas over top of Peanut Butter cup on the lid. The result was beautiful! I feel Jelly works really well in the inner corner if you love an interesting pop of color in your looks.
My overall thoughts on this palette are that this is worth the purchase if you’re someone that collects these or wants a new warm toned palette for Spring and Summer. I feel this palette has the right mixture of shades to create soft and bold looks, and I love that Too Faced finally put a matte white in a palette.
I think this is a palette that will work on many different skin tones. I know a lot of fellow pale humans fear warm shades, I know I did, but they’re growing on me. Over the past 6 months I’ve learned to love them and I like the warmth some shades give my look on days that I feel super tired and mom-bie like.
