Call the bomb squad because Too Faced cosmetics’ “Glitter Bomb” palette is sizzling. Too Faced released a brand-new glitter eyeshadow palette. When I first saw the palette on Too Faced founder, Jerrod Blandino’s Instagram, I was in shock. Blandino teased a gold glitter pic on his page. First of all, I love glitter. I love Too Faced. I love gold. I loooove writing about things that I love! I started seeing pictures around the social media scene about a new glitter palette from Too Faced. Put two and two together and behold, the “Glitter Bomb” palette.
Too Faced’s newest palette entails a black exterior with “Glitter” lettering. Each letter features a different color of glitter and moves within the palette every time you shake it. The words: “Too Faced” and “Bomb” are engraved in gold.
The “Glitter Bomb” palette features 8 glitter shadows and 2 base shadows. “Fairy Dust” is a very subtle pink with a white flip. “Confetti” is a light purple shade. “Hot Damn” features a deep purple shade. “Glitter Goals” consists of a black and purple duo chrome color. “Rose All Day” is a light pink shade. “Work It” features orange and gold glitter with a red shift. “Ok, It’s On” consists of true gold glitter. “Splash” entails a blue glitter shade with a green shift. The two bases consist of pure white and black shades. The white base is used to brighten the shadows. Whereas, the black base is used to darken the shadows.
When I first used this palette, I tried the shadows dry with a regular shading brush. The shadows appeared to be light in color, almost sheer. Also, the glitter didn’t last all day. The amount of disappointment I felt after trying these out almost led me to return the palette altogether. But, I decided to give it another try. This time, I used NYX’s glitter primer as a base. The glitter managed to stay on longer but the color still looked sheer. Ok, after this, I was certain about getting my money back. Then I thought, third time’s a charm, right? So finally, I tried using the shadows wet. I sprayed some of my highly coveted “Photo Finish Primer Water” from Smashbox onto the back of my hand. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I dipped the brush onto the back of my hand and into the palette. As I rubbed my lids with the brush, I was in amaze! The colors popped and the glitter was bright. There was no fallout and the shadows lasted the whole day.
Overall, I think this palette works well if you use it wet. There’s too much fallout and the colors don’t pop if you use it dry. I found the darkening base to make more of a difference than the brightening base when it came to enhancing the shadows. The assortment of colors are unique and pretty…. Who am I kidding, anything sparkly will cause any makeup lover to holla! So, imma leave my money with Too Faced and keep this glistening palette in my collection. Ok? Ok.
The palette retails for $45 and can be purchased through Sephora, ULTA, and Too Faced’ website, just to name a few. The launch of the “Glitter Bomb” palette comes with a new line of “Melted Latex” liquid lipsticks.
