Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette

The Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eye Shadow Collection or the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette is a new Spring/Summer 2016 palette featuring 12 nine shades of eyeshadow inspired by peanut butter and jelly. Or technically, according too Faced, it’s inspired by the social media sensation that is Peanut Butter. I must be old, living under a rock, or not paying attention as I had no idea Peanut Butter was trending across social media.


Whether a sensation on social media or not this cute palette was definitely appealing to me as I really love warmer shades of eyeshadow. I think the funny thing about the palette is the fact that it focuses more on peanut butter versus jelly as there are only two shades of purple in this palette. So if you like warmer shades you’ll likely adore this cute little palette but for those expecting more jelly or purple shades, well, it could be slightly disappointing.

Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eye Shadow Collection

The Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette is your standard eyeshadow collection palette from Too Faced. It comes housed in a tin with a how to get the look guide located inside and nine eyeshadows to create three different signature looks (or more!). The palette seems a little smaller in size versus past ones that Too Faced has done but still holds the same amount of eyeshadow (0.07 oz on the three larger shades and 0.03 oz on the smaller shades). I like the packaging a lot. It kinda brings to mind cutesy Sanrio characters and reminds me of those little pencil cases my mom used to buy me as a child. As promised it does smell like Peanut Butter or to my nose it kinda smells like Peanut Butter and Chocolate but the smell isn’t as strong as the one on the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette and it fades quickly once applied. As per the packaging it contains no nuts so it shouldn’t be a problem for those allergic to peanut nuts.

I don’t feel like there are a ton of dupes in this palette which is a good thing as Too Faced does so like to rerun their shades over and over again. The two shades that stood out to me as potential dupes were Peanut Butter Cup and Spread the Love but aside from that the other shades seemed fairly fresh and new. The palette is made up of shimmer, frost, and matte finishes with a mix of textures and consistencies.

Stand out shades and formulas in the matte department would be Nuts About You and Peanut Butter (repromoted from the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette). These are intense, pigmented mattes with a fairly smooth, silky consistency that applied well on my eyes. Extra Creamy was a matte that applied a little patchy and dry for me and Spread the Love, a semi-matte, was silky and blended nicely although both were fairly sheer and worked best as base shades or highlighters.

Peanut Brittle and Peanut Butter Cup are beautiful velvety almost creamy textured shimmer shades. These were the Too Faced traditional formula, the one we all know and love. These are super pigmented, creamy, easy to apply, soft, and velvety. They weren’t too heavy either and didn’t look metallic or overly frosted on my lids.

Bananas was a shade I didn’t like as this was a frost and I dislike frosts. But the formula was perfectly fine with a soft texture and fairly nice pigmentation. Although this color seemed to stick on my lids rarely badly and appeared a bit worn but that’s typically how frosts look on me so that’s not fault of the formula.

Jammin’ was a nice formula with excellent color pay off but it tends to go a bit muddy when used with some of the other warmer shades in this palette.

This palette is made up of some really, intense warm shades so not everyone is going to love it. Even the smaller pops of purple don’t take away from the warm, rich shades. I kinda wished there were more purples in this palette. I also felt like it might have come across better if they did a single trio of purple shades that went together because working the smaller amount of purple into a warmer look can prove a little challenging at times. I used the shade Jelly to line my lower eyes below as I was too intimidated to try it in the crease or even on my lid with the other warmer shades. I think I like the idea of a Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette in theory more than I do on my actual eye. But hey, little pops of “jelly” (or purple) used to line with here and there actually does make for a fun look!

All in all the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Eyeshadow Palette is filled with some really lovely shades. The palette doesn’t seem like a rerun of past shades and it does contain some rather unique ones. There are limitations here though as not everyone is going to like such intensely warm colors but for those who gravitate towards them you’ll enjoy this selection I’m sure!

I dunno about jelly but Too Faced did bring the peanut butter in this cute palette!

    I love this palette! I didn’t think I’d like it as much as I do since I prefer cooler colors, but it wasn’t as orange-y (or sparkly) as I feared. I used about 1/2 the shadows and was so happy to find those high-quality TF shadows and not the duds they come out with for their holiday sets. Even the light PB/chocolate scent didn’t bother me. So glad I purchased.

    • Isabella Muse

      I liked it a lot too! I wish it had a few more purples but overall, great quality! A little issue with Jammin’ blending out muddy but aside from that most of the palette was fantastic!

  • Janessa

    I am so on the fence about whether or not I’ll eventually pick this up… I absolutely adore these TF shadow palette tins, but I’m more drawn to cool palettes. I have hazel eyes so the warms do look pretty, but idk… I’ll probably grab it when a 20% off at Ulta comes up. That Peach one however, that one is coming home with me without a doubt!

  • Claire L

    The purple looks so pretty with your dark eyes! It looks a warm palette overall tho so not for me xx

  • Lizzie

    Don’t worry – I had NO idea that peanut butter was an internet sensation until I see Too Faced’s makeup palette cropping up anywhere! I just love the amount of attention they put into their packaging. Even though I had peanut butter and jelly I really want this palette. It looks so pigmented! I love how you put purple beneath your waterline – the colour looks great on you!

    • Isabella Muse

      Haha right? I thought I missed something! Aw thanks! It’s really a nice palette! Good texture, pigment here!

  • Kimmwc03

    I’m loving this palette so far even though I prefer cooler shadows. I wish more palettes were this size (unlike the big, long UD Naked or Lorac Pro ones).

  • Colleen

    I wasn’t interested in this until I saw the beautiful look you created. So pretty!

    • Isabella Muse

      Right? I love all the warm shades, they are lovely, but more purple would have been interesting! A few shades I could do a complete purple look with would have been balanced things out nicely!

  • Zoey

    I think the color “Peanut Butter” from one of their Chocolate Bar palettes was trending, rather than the actual food of peanut butter! Thanks for the review! I think this palette is a little too warm toned for me.

    • Isabella Muse

      ah! thanks Zoey the trending thing had me confused there! My pleasure! It is def very, very warm!

  • Terri

    Sigh….no Ulta in Canada…no shipping from Ulta to Canada….why can’t this be at Sephora?!? The universe is telling me I don’t need another palette, apparently! Love the look you created, by the way 😉

    • Isabella Muse

      hi terri! aw sorry! how about directly from too faced? do they ship to Canada? aw thanks <3!

  • Butterdaisy

    So happy to see your swatches. I’m a Too Faced scented shadow collector and love the quality. I am also a major PB&J fan, so this baby is coming home with me for sure. I am so excited for the Peach Palette. The only one I did not get is the Bon Bon bc I don’t care for pink at all and there were too many in the palette for my tastes.

  • danadoo

    I just need the shade “jelly”! They need to make this as a single eyeshadow..i have a gazillion brown shades already.

  • Bridget

    Hi muse!, the peanut butter jelly palette looks nice but i want to know what foundation you have on! your skin looks so smooth bright and youthful, really pretty. 🙂

  • Zovesta

    Warm tones look hideous on me, but… I still want this. =( You make it sound so tempting! Thanks for the wonderful review as always. <3 It's true, your skin does look very nice here!

  • Sara

    I think a nice berry shade would have been nice. Not all jelly is grape!!! Yuck! I will be buying both this and the peach palette. I have a problem but too many palettes ain’t one of them….yet!

  • Erin

    Sigh. I’m still so on the fence as to whether or not I’m going to pick this up. I have green eyes, so the pops of purple would be so nice, but I wish there were more “jelly” colors. There’s so many browns, and I already own so many browns. Ugh.

  • Kelli

    I have to agree with you on wishing there was more “jelly” in the palette. But I have an obsession with palettes and this one can’t be passed up. LOL! I just received the Tarte Rainforest of the sea one today. Wow is all I can say. Beautiful! I need to stop. So easier said than done! Love the look you created ❤❤

    • Isabella Muse

      Right? A few more purples would be lovely 😀 Oh it’s lovely! glad you got that one! Very gorgeous palette 😀 aw thank you Kelli!

  • anyuelexi

    is it still sold @ sephora or has it been discontinued? love ur reviews xx

    • Isabella Muse

      It was never available at Sephora, just at Ulta and Too Faced’s website. It’s no longer at Ulta but it recently came back in stock on Too Faced’s website! Hope this helps! Thank you xoxoxo!
