Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Guess what time it is glamour babes?! It’s peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time! Peanut butter jelly time! Now where he at? Where he at? Where he at? Where he at? Now there he go, there he go, there he go, there he go. Sorry! This catchy tune always seems to creep inside my head when using Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette ($36.00 for 0.39oz), but I’m sure you saw that one coming. Lol. Just like the song, it’s a fun little palette to play with.

Product Description:

“Inspired by the social media sensation that is Peanut Butter from Too Faced’s bestselling Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Collection, they created this peanut butter palette of nine gorgeous matte and shimmer shades featuring antioxidant-rich cocoa powder with a creamy peanut butter twist! Includes their signature Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started.”

Shades:

Bananas is a soft peachy gold w/ fine gold shimmer

Extra Creamy is a matte creamy beige

Spread the Love is a medium peach w/ gold sparkle

Jammin’ is a dark chocolate w/ golden sparkle

Jelly is a vibrant orchid

Nuts About U is a matte brown w/ red undertones

Peanut Brittle is a metallic burnt orange

Peanut Butter is a matte medium orange brown

Peanut Butter Cup is a metallic golden bronze w/ gold sparkle

I will be honest. I did not pay full price. As much as I wanted this delicious looking peanut buttery palette, I thought $36 was a bit much for 9 eyeshadows. Luckily, Ulta’s Hot Buy happened to be this palette and I picked one up last week for $20!

FYI: The Too Faced PB&J Palette is still on sale and has not sold out yet online. You can call or type in your zip to find the closest Ulta Beauty store near you to check availability for pick up.

The Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette comes housed in a sturdy tin compact that includes a mirror and glamour guide inside. Magnets keep the compact tightly secure for safe travels so you don’t lose your lunch. Hahahaha! Get it? Food humor.

What I love about this palette is that you can create beautiful smoldering eyes in minutes by using only three colors along with the how-to-glamour guide, and boom you’re done. Eyes look good enough to eat.

I went the soft and sweet route (Spread the Love, Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Cup) and finished both eyes in five minutes. I was really pleased how the earthy, neutral tones complimented my skin and eye color (blue gray), and received many compliments. I will be using that shade combo quite often. Those might hit pan first. Lol.

The finely milled formula is lightweight, buttery smooth, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, versatile, highly pigmented, does not crease or run, and has a rich scent of chocolate and peanut butter that is not overpowering.

The color payoff is filling. In a good way. Without Primer 5 hours. With primer 8 hours. All this talk of savory and sweet is making me thirsty. Excuse me, while I pour myself a nice tall glass of almond milk. Ahhhhhhh.

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Eyeshadow Palette is available at Ulta and TooFaced.com.

Thinking of getting one?

Do tell!

Stay beautiful, xo.

Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm Review:

Why do all of the cosmetics I come to love get discontinued glamour babes, why?!

I had a good thing going with Too Faced Cosmetics Tinted Beauty Balm. From the shade (Vanilla Glow) to the formulation. It was a perfect match for my oily/fair complexion. I mean seriously Too Faced. If it ain’t broke, why discontinue it? 

I purchased the Too Faced Beauty Balm at my local T.J. Maxx for $12 (orig.$34), not thinking for a second that this product could possibly become discontinued. I thought more along the lines of a reformulation. A lot of makeup companies are known to do such a thing, and rightfully so. 

As we all know, when beauty bargain hunting at these kinds of discount department stores, its a rarity to typically find your shade of choice. Normally, I tend to find shades for medium to deep skin tones, never fair. That being said, I swooped in and snatched Vanilla Glow before anybody else could. As the seagulls saying goes in Finding Nemo-it was mine, mine, mine! 

Vanilla Glow is a fair shade with a golden undertone. 
The undetectable broad spectrum (SPF 20) formula provides sheer to medium coverage. It has a lightweight, creamy, balmy texture. It’s comfortable to wear, easy to apply, easy to blend, non greasy, does not oxidize, hydrating, long lasting, pore-minimizing, and sets in a luminous/matte finish. A little Beauty Balm goes a long way too. I would start off with a pea size amount on my oval brush and would work from there if I felt my skin needed more coverage.This Tinted Beauty Balm is suitable for all skin types, especially oily/acne prone. I’m telling you, I could wear this all day long and sleep in it if I wanted to. I would not get one breakout or any visible clogged pores. My skin looked flawless, fresh and radiant all day long. It melts right into the skin, masking slight imperfections, which created a soft, dewy photo finish effect. Can you see what I am talking about?! That photo of me to the right though. My complexion is on fleek! Now, because this is a sheer to medium coverage BB Cream, it doesn’t fully cancel out redness. After I apply the Too Faced Tinted Beauty Balm, I let it set for a moment, and then go back in with a small concealer brush and full coverage concealer (Flower Beauty Hollywood Concealer kit has been my world lately) to camouflage the few red blemishes that I have on my face. You can use a blending sponge or brush to cover wider areas if need be. Just a fun little tip to throw out there when using any BB cream. 

Too Faced your Tinted Beauty Balm was pure magic and I wish you never discontinued it. Hopefully, you’ll come across this review as well as others to see what big fans we are of the product. Please bring this one back! It’s amazing. 

As I mourn the loss of an excellent BB Cream. What would you boys and gals consider I try next? 

Do share your cruelty free/vegan friendly favorites!

Stay beautiful, xo.

Too Faced Melted Metal Liquified Lipstick Review:

I’m not sure how I feel about my T.J. Maxx finds glamour babes. I do not hate nor love them. I guess you could say I’m stuck in the middle. Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Metal Liquified Lipsticks In Metallic Bunny and Metallic Dream House are absolutely beautiful shades and perfect to wear for the spring, but I wasn’t impressed by their longevity and application.

If you happen to love them, check out T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. Both stores carry the liquified lipsticks for $5.99 each. You can get these at TooFaced.com on their sale page for $18.90, but why would you wanna do a thing like that if you can get them for dirt cheap at an affordable department store?!

FYI: Make sure to open the boxes and check if the Melted Metal Lipsticks have not been tested. I can’t tell you how many boxes I have opened and found half of them used, tops were missing, some were apparently stolen (bad karma), and shades were not in the correct box. I sometimes don’t understand people’s foolishness, smh. Maybe T.J. Maxx should display testers in their stores like Sephora and Ulta. Now there’s food for thought.

Metallic Bunny is a cool toned light bright pink with pink and gold shimmer.

Metallic Dream House is a blue toned, cool fuchsia with a pearlized finish.The formula is nice and lightweight, making them comfortable to wear. The angled plush velvet tip delivers precise applications. They have a slick, glossy feel when applied. They do not feather or bleed, and have vibrant color. So what’s the issue? Both colors apply unevenly, collect into lip lines, and barely have any staying power. I had to coat my lips three times (apparently that’s the charm) for these lively colored hues to achieve a uniform look. Once I got that down pact, the Melted Metal Liquefied Lipsticks had no problem gathering into EVERY line, crack, and crevice of my lips. So attractive, lol. The durability did not wow me either. Thirty minutes of wear, my lips were pretty much bare except for the pigment clinging inside the lines. I also found these to have more of a frosted finish than a shimmery metallic sheen. I think I will use the Too Faced Melted Metals as a topcoat for my lip stains. I can use a little hydration while mixing things up in the process.

How do you use your Melted Metals?

Stay Beautiful! Xo.

Too Faced No Filter Selfie Powders Review:

Get those iPhone cameras ready glamour babes, Too Faced No Filter Selfie Powders will make your Fridays look fresh and flawless! Say cheese!

The purpose of this palette is not to chisel your features with a sharp contour or bling out your skin with shimmer. That’s what Anastasia Beverly Hills is for, and she does an impeccable job at sculpting faces and creating a supernova glow. Too Faced No Selfie Filter Powders are intended to brighten, blur, and diffuse skin imperfections by using light fragment technology as TF likes to call it, creating a photo filter finish. Use Sunrise, Totally Toasted, and Moon River individually or all together for ultimate selfie gratification!

I really do enjoy using the selfie powders when special occasions and social gatherings arise, much like tonight. There’s nothing like a good old fashioned Halloween party to make things memorable by camera, and something your friends will never make you forget, gotta love em, lol. Good thing I have these powders to create the picture perfect complexion, I’m ready for my closeup, give me everything you got! Flash me baby!

Sunrise creates brightness, love this shade for dark circles or allover alone.

Totally Toasted brings a little warmth to the face.


Moon river can be applied allover or to areas of the face to create a subtle illuminating glow.


The powders are lightweight, buttery soft, finely milled, and have sheer pigment, giving skin a natural soft focus glow.
I use all three when I choose to wear these powders and they blend well. Sunrise brightens my eyes, Totally Toasted gives warmth to my cheekbones, while Moon River produces a faint icy ethereal glow to my complexion. I would use a stiffer, more dense brush to pick up the powders. A powder brush barely caught any pigment when I was applying. I found my kabuki and oval brushes worked best. See!

When trying these for the first time, I was actually surprised by how well the No Filter Selfie Powders withstood throughout the day. All day wear with just an oily t-zone came about, not a big deal, blotting papers are always on hand.

I will agree with other reviewers that this palette is not exactly worth the $32 sale price on the TF website. It might be for you selfie lovers out there who take great pleasure being in front of the camera, and that’s cool, but for me it’s something I don’t use on a regular basis. $15 sounds a bit more reasonable, and Nordstrom Rack is the place to get it for such a price. And would you look at that, you have more than enough in your pocket to treat yourself to a coffee and scone, or more makeup! Lol.

Have a spooktacular Halloween weekend!

Stay beautiful! Xo.
