First Impressions: Too Faced Peanut Butter & Honey Eye Shadow Palette

Disclaimer: I bought this.

Too Faced Peanut Butter and Honey eye shadow palette review and swatches on BeautyJudy

I’ve been anxiously awaiting the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Honey Eye Shadow Palette, so when Ulta offered it to me as a Platinum Perk, I jumped.

The first thing I noticed about this palette is its compact design and sturdy tin packaging. I especially like the way they put “Honey” on the outside cover, it actually looks like honey when you tilt it and look at it in the light – so pretty!

The palette comes with a thin cardboard fold-up with instructions for three different looks.

And for kicks, here’s the back of the palette:

Here’s a closer look at the pans:

I haven’t done a look yet with the palette, but I did swatch the shadows on the back of my hand, over Smashbox 24-Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer:

Here are the shadows and my own description of the colors and finishes, by row.

Top row:

Left to right: Creamed Honey (bone  with superfine microglitter or sparkle), Peanut Butter (a creamy raw sienna) and Going Nuts (rich blackened-brown shimmer).

Middle row:

Left to right: Bee Sweet (a light pink matte), Honey Brittle (salmon matte) and Bee’s Knees (burnt sienna with small gold glitter – not as small as Creamed Honey).

Bottom row:

Left to right: Queen Bee (ivory shimmer), Honey Buns (mustard yellow matte) and Feelin’ Nutty (oddly, this one reminds me more of a dark peanut butter color compared with the shadow actually named Peanut Butter!).

All of the shadows feel nice to the touch. Bee’s Knees was the most pigmented as I swatched, with Queen Bee, Honey Buns, Going Nuts runners up.

What about SCENT?!

This has a sweet scent to it for sure! I noticed quickly that when I opened my palette, the smell wasn’t as strong as when I open the Too Faced Chocolate palettes. It’s much more subtle. I’ll be honest, I can’t pull out the peanut butter but I think I smell the honey scent in this. It just smells … sweet. And I have to shove my face in it to smell it. I wonder if some palettes will smell stronger than others? I’m a tad disappointed that it doesn’t smell like peanut butter.

When I compare the scent with the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette, I have to shove my face in that palette to smell it, too. I think the peanut butter scent is stronger in this palette.

Now, this is all my opinion based on my own sniffer, so I’d love to hear your thoughts when you get the opportunity to sniff it!

Oh – one other note of comparison. One shade is shared between the Honey and Jelly palettes – Peanut Butter. But I think that’s understandable, don’t you?

So these are my initial thoughts based on my initial experience and swatching with the palette. This palette is $36 and will be available March 1.

Is it on your wish list?

I’ll post a look with this palette soon!

      After using a couple times I can say you’re probably best off skipping!

    Oh! I’m so glad to see swatches of this. I think I’m totally in love with Bee’s Knees. I’m glad it’s in the tin. I like those little tins.

      I love the tins too!

    Pretty colors. I’m sure though that my 3 year old would want to steal this from me for the constant picnics we have to have every time she’s at my house.
