Pretty florals, check. Cream, blush hues, check. Bow bag, check. We usually associate spring with baby pinks and pastel shades but I can’t get enough Peanut Butter and Jelly this season. This palette sports the
most delectable assortment of rich nut-browns, plus that all important pop of purple; savoury yet sweet.
Happiness comes in the most adorable, quirky little box, complete with gold adornments and little peanut illustrations. Sliding the palette out from the box you can almost detect the moreish aroma of chocolate covered pretzels, although perhaps it is my nose quivering in anticipation. The palette itself, although small, is of a good weight, and similar to the Chocolate Bon Bon palette with its cool magnetic closure.
The peanut adorned lid gives way to the prettiest ambers, russets and warm burnt caramels the eye ever did see. Purples are rich and decadent and the whole thing smells just like chocolate covered pretzels, the perfect amount of sweetness and certainly not overpowering. Here is an overview of the shades.
Spread the Love is a matte light peach, Peanut Butter, a matte toffee caramel shade, Peanut Butter cup, a shimmery metallic chocolate hue, Bananas, the most gorgeous shimmering gold, Peanut Brittle, a shimmery copper, Jammin’ is a curious dark gunmetal purple, almost brown hue with lots of sparkle, Extra Creamy is a disappointingly barely there matte white, Jelly an electric shimmery violet and Nuts About U a beautiful matte terracotta. All excepting Extra Creamy, they are seriously pigmented!
The formula is very similar to the Chocolate Bon Bons but I can’t get over how beautiful the shades are together. They are everything I hoped for and more and so fun to layer and create different looks. I love how the rich shades look with my warm complexion, I instantly feel more confident when wearing these. There is very little fallout, compared to the White Chocolate Chip palette and the bolder shades last for hours. I really love the lil Glamour guide tucked inside, with hints and tips as to how to wear the shades.
I have always been so curious to know as to what this actually smelt like, as a stranger to a peanut butter and jam or jelly combination. It is so addictive and moreish, at the same time like caramel ice cream. I’ve been getting it out of my draw just to open and smell it, so sweet and delicious! I will definitely be wearing this on a picnic soon. Have you ever tried peanut butter and jelly before? ♡
