Happy Tuesday to you!
The limited edition Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette recently released and I’ve got my thoughts about it and some swatches to check out.
Glitter Bomb features eight glittery, shimmery eyeshadow shades as well as a white matte “Brightening Base” and a black matte “Intensifying Base.” It comes in a cute, thin black palette decorated with the words “Glitter” spelled out in real glitter (protected and encased by a plastic insert.) There is a mirror inside and it comes with a How-To Glamour Guide.
They also have a new Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue Glitter Bonding Eyeshadow Primer (sold separately for $20.00) which is a colorless cream “glue” that locks the glittery pieces in place, so you have less or no fall-out. It is definitely a stickier base than their regular Shadow Insurance and it seems to really hold things in place much better than regular primers do.
You can use the shadows wet as well to create more of a “liquid crystal finish” but I haven’t tried that. They are a bit build-able as well. My swatches here were two swipes each, and everything was swatched over the Glitter Glue.
Fairy Dust is a light pink/white.
Confetti is a light pink/lavender.
Hot Damn! is an intense purple/pink.
Glitter Goals is a purple/grey/blue.
Using the Brightening Base does seem to make these pop a bit more.
Rosé All Day is a light pinky/peach.
Work It is an intense burnt orange/pink.
Oh, It’s On! is a vivid copper/gold.
Splash is a medium mermaid-ish blue/green.
And over the Intensifying Base they definitely do get more intense and even change color a bit.
If you are into glitter, shimmer and shine, then you might like this palette. I do suggest investing in the Glitter Glue unless you have another method which keeps fall-out at bay because these WILL get all over. I like that they came with the matte white and black to help switch them up. I do think the deeper shades are much better than the light ones in terms of color payoff, but you can build them up some.
Glitter on your lids, is it something you are into or no?
