Beauty in Review: Too Faced Peanut Butter & Honey Palette

I am a sucker for new eyeshadow palettes. I love new makeup in general but my weakness is eyeshadow. They're so pretty and the colors are unique, and the layout & packaging draws you in. UGH I love new eyeshadow palettes!

I especially love limited edition, fun eyeshadow palettes from Too Faced, which is what this post is all about. Last year, Too Faced released their Peanut Butter & Jelly palette. I am a huge peanut butter fan so I jumped at this palette; it's quickly become one of my favorites in my collection.

When I heard that Too Faced was going to release a Peanut Butter & Honey palette, I was even more excited. More peanut butter, more neutral shades! When I saw a photo of this palette, I was less than impressed. The yellow shade Honey Buns made me question if I wanted this palette because I didn't think I'd use it. I didn't even pay mind to the other shades and didn't really pay attention to when this was going to be released.

However, I woke up one morning a few weeks ago and trendmood1 posted on Instagram that the palette was available for Platinum members only on Ulta's website. I made my decision and bought the palette, because I just couldn't miss out on something limited edition.

When I received it, I was super impressed with how much better it looked in person than online. That's why I recommend going in store to see it because it's so beautiful and photos/videos don't do it justice.

Honestly, people have been saying the pigmentation on these shadows are bad but I don't see it. The one shade I had an issue with 'Going Nuts' -- it doesn't swatch that great but it's perfect on the eyes. Honey Buns also isn't fabulous but I wasn't expecting much from the bright yellow. Everything else I think is up to Too Faced standards!

I've been testing it out and using it since I got it and I really love it. It's probably my top 5 favorite palettes because the colors are super warm, neutral, and perfect for everyday.

*Below is my FIRST VIDEO EVER. I recorded it at DubDub Studios in Manhattan *if you're an influencer, look em up! It's free to go to their studios and record with them!

I talked a bit about the palette, to accompany this review & I hope you like it!



The palette repeats the shade Peanut Butter from the Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar palette & the original Peanut Butter and Jelly palette. The other shades are inspired by peanut butter and honey, so they range from pink to brown to yellow -- it's a palette that could be used to create multiple different looks. Whether it's day or night there are shades for everyone.

I think the most unique shades are Queen Bee which is a grey, taupe shade; Honey Brittle which is a brownie peach shade; and Going Nuts which is a plum, deep brown shade.

As I said in the video, the review for this palette are less than wonderful and some don't swatch that well, but once you apply the shades on the eyes they work like a dream! You can't always trust swatches, you really have to work with shadows on the eyelid.

If you're interested in this palette and the reviews have been putting you off, I recommend going in store to Ulta when it's available (call your local Ulta for a date -- they may even have it already) and seeing for yourself. If you want too, I recommend even purchasing it from the TooFaced website or Ulta.com and trying it out. Both websites have return policies up to 60 days so you can always return it if it doesn't work!

Have you tried this palette yet? Did you want to pick it up?
