Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette - Swatches & First Impressions

Hi!
**purchased / g.w.p.

It's been crazy around here lately, but I've got some down time to get a post up.  Yay!  I literally just bought today's post subject yesterday and wanted to get my thoughts on it up ASAP since it keeps selling out on Too Faced's site and there weren't many left in store either (I've seen on Instagram that this palette is in super high demand and selling out everywhere).  Also, in my local Ulta, this was on a display close to where the "impulse" displays are close to the registers rather than on the prestige side - I had a heck of a time finding it.  One more thing - this is NOT sold at Sephora!  So let's get to it!
Right now, Ulta has a gift with $35 purchase for Too Faced - it's called Pretty Girl's Secrets and has 3 deluxe samples, so that encouraged me to get the Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette ($36) sooner rather than later.  The ad runs from March 13 through April 2 - if you want the gift, try to get to the store sooner before they run out.
There's a sample of the HangoveRx Replenishing Face Primer, which I've been wanting to try.  There's also another sample of the Better than Sex Mascara and the Love Flush Blush in Love Hangover.  I already have the blush shade from the Holiday set so this one will go in Backup Land.  I do wish that they had made the blush in a shade that wasn't in any holiday gift sets.
The cute little slice of toast on the back tells you, "Don't Worry Sweetie, This Product Doesn't Contain Any Actual Peanuts."
This has the same metal case with magnetic closure as other Too Faced's small 9-pan palettes.  It's a good and strong magnet - I accidentally picked up a spoon that was on my desk with the palette.  This does have a bit of a peanut butter-y scent, but I also pick up chocolate.  Kind of like a Reece's Cup - both chocolate and peanut butter.  Covering the mirror is the How-To Glamour Guide, which I've started leaving in my palettes for some reason
 Natural daylight so the shimmers show up better.

Swatch time! No primer/lotion/etc, as usual.  I only built up one shade.
 Soft & Sweet Look: Spread the Love, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Cup
Rich & Creamy Look: Bananas, Peanut Brittle, Jammin'
PB & J Look: Extra Creamy, Jelly, Nuts About You

Peanut Brittle is the softest shade in the bunch, so I took a picture to show how messy that shade got with just one swatch done.  I has some crumbles on my hand of the shade as well that I had to smooth out.  Extra Creamy is not that creamy in texture.  I had to build that swatch up a couple of times as I found it very dense in the pan.
There are 3 matte shades in the palette: Peanut Butter, Extra Creamy, and Nuts About You.  Spread the Love does have gold sparkles, but they didn't show up in my swatch so it'll probably come off more as a matte on the eye.  Jelly is an interesting shade that kind of wants to be a baby duo-chrome.  I think I saw a suggestion somewhere to play around with light and dark bases under it to alter it's look.  I'll have to try that.  The middle row - Bananas, Peanut Brittle, and Jammin' - are all gorgeous with various degrees of metallic-ness.  Jammin' also has pretty gold microglitter thrown in; Peanut Butter is the other metallic shade and also has some pretty gold microglitter added.

I've had this for less than 24 hours, but I can't wait to play with this and see what looks I can come up with.  I already know what my next large palette purchase will be - the upcoming Sweet Peach Palette!!

Are you planning on adding the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette to your makeup stash?  Do you prefer warm toned shadows or cool?
