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.

Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette Review:

Whahoo! Marc Jacobs Beauty is cruelty free glamour babes! I was one of the lucky contestants to receive their New Fall Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette ($49) through Influenster for reviewing purposes.

I had no idea Marc Beauty was on the cruelty free list (logical harmony, cruelty free kitty, PETA). I just assumed that the brand was owned by Coty (not cruelty free), and I left it alone. Obviously, I got ahead of myself, judged too quickly, and did not do my research properly. Here is what I learned. Coty owns Marc Jacobs Fragrances, not Marc Jacobs Beauty, which is owned by Kendo-a Cruelty Free Company that works with other brands that we all know and love, such as Kat Von D, Bite Beauty, and Ole Henriksen.

If you want to read more about it, visit CrueltyFreeKitty.com. It’s an eye opener, I’ll tell you that much. The link is above.
So what gorgeous Palette out of the six available was I given from Marc Beauty and Influenster you wonder?
Frivoluxe! And boy is she beautiful.

The Icy cool toned gray and violet palette carries 7 shades, ranging in four finishes-Velvet Matte, Silk, Satin, and Metallic.

The eyeshadows come housed in a gorgeous modernesque all black sleek plastic case that includes a slender mirror so you can focus your attention on those smoldering eyes that are about to be created.

The formula is finely milled, intensely pigmented, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, all of the shades are blendable and buildable, providing long lasting wear. Because the eyeshadows are finely milled there is a good amount of kick back dust, and eyeshadow debris during application. Beware.
I lost track of time after 6 hours. My eyes were smmmmooookkkkiiinnnnn all day well into the night. You can customize the shades to your liking. They can easily be manipulated for day or night wear.

I absolutely love this palette. I already have my eyes on two others from this collection-Edgitorial (camouflage and gold) and Scandalust (rust and warmed browns with scarlet). I will have to wait for a special occasion like my birthday however. Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Palettes are a pretty penny. As scary as this is going to sound, fall (November baby right here!) is right around the corner. This frightening thought however, gives me plenty of time to save my dollars for a rainy shopping day!

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes are available at these fine retailers-Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and MarcJacobsBeauty.com.

Remember, when in doubt smokey eye it out!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites Review:

Another great gift idea that is sure to please are Pixi’s Fairy Dust Favourites glamour babes, and they won’t break the bank. The stackable loose pigment tower costs only $12 and carries five shades in two different finishes; Matte Classics and Metallic Warmth.


I own the Matte Classics, which include the following shades:


Sheer Cream

Matte Nude
Velvet Fawn
Bark Brown
Matte Black
Petra personally chose the neutral suit all shades to make life a whole lot easier on the working gal or mum when wanting to create an everyday eye enhancing flattering look, and these five hues do it beautifully!

The loose powders are finely milled, soft, smooth, highly pigmented, opaque, are easy to apply and blend, and barely produce any shadow debris when applying to the upper and lower lids.

For pigmented shadows, the loose powders apply much softer, almost satin like than a full on matte finish shadow. And would you know it, that’s what these satin effect powders are intended to do create a soft focus finish. Well said, and simply put Petra, I’ll be sure to read the back of the box next time, lol.

Pixi’s Fairy Dust Favourites are perfectly portable for those on the go. They’re sleek, sturdy (plastic), and light enough to throw in your handbag, diaper bag, office drawer, car glove compartment, wherever you see fit for a touch up, if need be. They do have pretty long lasting wear.

I wore Sheer Cream and Everlasting Fawn to a family event recently and both colors stayed put for 6 hours with no creasing or fading. How awesome is that?!

I seriously love the fact that I can dress up my eyes again with shadows and liners thanks to Pixi Beauty, and Petra of course!
Have you tried Pixi’s Fairy Dust Favourites?! What’s your take on these magnificent loose pigment powders?! I hope your thoughts will be full of whimsy and merriment!

We gotta keep the whole holiday feel goin on here deeries, lol.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

TheBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer (A.K.A. “The Con-tour Artist”) Review:

Do not pass go, do not collect $200, go directly to jail and meet your new cellmate glamour babes, Ms.Cindy-Lou Manizer from TheBalm. Don’t let this little red-headed minx fool you, she is quite the multitasker at hand. Her highlighter, shimmer, and shadow skills are known to steal a couple of glances from afar getting us girls into a whole lot of trouble with the boys, I should know 😉 Cindy-Lou is housed in a sturdy plastic round compact accompanied by a full sized mirror along with her peachy pink face powder.  


 And if your someone who does not care for Cindy’s peachy pink charms then head yourself on over to the next cell and meet her two sisters, Betty-Lou (the bronzing bandit) and Mary-Lou (the honey hued luminzer).  

 These two girls have a ton of beauty hijinx up their sleeves for you so you can create the ultimate sultry mugshot right at your fingertips. Sorry, no makeup brushes here that would be contraband lol. Apply anywhere you like, Cindy-lou is a master of disguise and can brighten any feature you would like to enhance. She certainly used her contouring skills on my brows bones and cheeks making them beam with sheer radiance. If you prefer to emphasize more on the eyes, not a problem, this cheeky compact creates one sexy shimmery set of bedroom eyes that will bring a prison guard to his knees! I told you the girl has skills. The satiny pearlized powder goes on as smooth as a criminal producing an even soft ethereal glow to all areas where applied. Just be careful with Cindy, her finely milled temperamental pressed powder can create a whirl wind of kick-back dust when her score isn’t settled, so apply with caution. My everlasting relationship with Cindy lasted for a solid 5 hours as she later disappeared well into the night leaving me with fond memories of a gorgeous face.  

Bail for the Manizer sisters is set at $24 a piece, not such a bad price to pay for an escapee who can conjure up a pretty face in the matter of seconds. Stay beautiful! xo.
