It's glitter baby!
Today I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Too Faced Glitter Bomb eye shadow palette. I wasn't sure what to expect but I usually love Too Faced shadows so I snatched it up.
Let's just talk about the packaging for a moment. Isn't it lovely?
There are 8 glitters shadows and 2 bases (white & black). Honestly, I was slightly disappointed to see the glitters were not as vibrant as the wording on the package. They are beautiful, just not what I expected. The color range reminds me of the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself palette. Totally different formulas, but the colors are similar.
If you're familiar with Too Faced glitters, you will easily recognize the dry formula. They look like nothing on dry skin. You will need a sticky base to get them to pop.
Here are 4 examples of how the base used will effect the outcome. For my look I used UD Allnighter for a wet application.
Here are the shadows swatches on dry skin using the white and black base provided in the palette.
Look I created using Rose all Day, Work It and Hot Da!n
Watch the shadows in action!
The palette is a little messy to use, but it's glitter which is common. The colors are gorgeous but not what I expected. Overall I like the palette but the glitters are not as vibrant as I thought they would be. Maybe I will enjoy them more if I use glitter glue to intensify the look. I'm going to try single shadow looks for work paired with a matte to calm things down.
Glitter Bomb retails for $45. I don't have the release date but it was part of Sephora's Fall Preview sale, so I believe it will be available soon!
