Is it just me, or is Too Faced completely obsessed with food?
I mean, I’m not hating at all. For the record, I am totally cool with this, but I’m just saying… It seems like all of their palettes have something to do with things that are delicious.
The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Palette has another cousin
Their new Peanut Butter & Honey palette is an offshoot of Semi-Sweet, from their Chocolate Bar collection, which has a shade in it called Peanut Butter.
It’s $36 and available now at The Cheesecake Factory!
Haha! Kidding. 🙂 No, it’s available now online and at Ulta.
P.S. Are you hungry yet? I’m starved.
Warm oranges and reddish browns
The nine powder shadows are all warm-toned, and there’s a lot of orange-brown and reddish brown action happening, which have been very popular makeup color themes over the past year or two.
3 minutes — say what?!
The palette comes with an insert called the Glamour Guide that has instructions for three different eye looks. Actually, the biggest reason I wanted to try this palette was because it says, “3 steps, 3 looks, 3 minutes” right there on the guide, and I’m like, WHAT?! Tell me that isn’t appealing — being able to do an eyeshadow look in three minutes. Because it’s totally appealing to me.
Well..only one of the looks has three steps. The other looks have four or five. 🙁
I’m wearing the three-step look in these pics, and I really was able to do it in three minutes, BUUUUT I was only able to finish the actual eyeshadow part.
It took me a little longer to do the brows, lashes and liner. About eight minutes total, but I think it might be possible to finish everything in three minutes (maybe?) if you’re a less-is-more kinda gal.
The mattes are the best thing about Peanut Butter & Honey IMO. They’re so much more pigmented than the mattes in Love Story, which was the last Too Faced palette I tested, yet just as easy to blend, so I don’t have to layer them as much.
I still get some fallout with these shadow, but you know…that’s just Too Faced.
I get the sense that if I were to accidentally pile on too much of these mattes, they’d look heavy, and they’d emphasize my fine lines, so on the scale of bomb-@ss mattes, I think these are pretty good, but not as great as the fine line-friendly mattes over at Dolce & Gabbana, Tom Ford and Chanel.
