Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette
Maybe I’ve just seen the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette too many times already on social media, because it’s definitely not my favourite Too Faced Palette. I like Too Faced as a brand; they’re quirky and inventive with how they present their products but I think the shades in this small size palette are very difficult to wear. If you’re a cool toned gal, forget it.
You can see all the shades names in the palette – apparently the shade Peanut Butter became a bit of a thing on social and the palette is based around that colour. I love the idea of a pop of ‘jelly’ with the purply shades but somehow can’t see myself wearing it.
This swatch is of the larger shadows from bottom to top: Extra Creamy, Bananas and Spread The Love.
From bottom to top: Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Cup, Peanut Brittle, Jammin, Jelly and Nuts About U. And yes, there is some fall out, although if you are using a very soft brush it’s not quite so much. I used a harder brush in this instance to get the colour intensity in the swatch so it may not be fair to say that fall out is plentiful. However, these are very saturated, gingery-bronze colours and Peanut Butter, Peanut Brittle and Nuts About You are all rather similar.
Ultimately, it’s fun – it does smell of sort of peanuty although it’s more vanilla-chocolate to my nose – but filled with tricky colours. In terms of ordering, things get even more tricky. Not only is there at £16 postage charge, but also duty and taxes. It’s not really a viable option to have this product shipped from the US to the UK, so you have to wonder why it’s getting any mentions at all. As it happens, it went live yesterday and is listed as sold out today – I know they had a wait-list for it – but for a product that’s all about the fun, the joke is on Too Faced this time because there is nothing that annoys consumers more than being over-charged on shipping and being prepped for a product that sells out in 24 hours. Nobody’s laughing this end.
