First time I played with this new palette from Too Faced, I reached a point during which glitter was seconds away from ending up all over the place…so I came to the following conclusion: why not put it in the crease, too? And the inner corner? And on my lower lash line?! Basically, why not put this glitter everywhere!?
I mean, if you’re gonna go there already, don’t just dip a toe in the glitter pool. GO. ALL. IN.
This fun $45 LE lioness is available right meow with eight powder glitter shadows, as well as two bases that you can layer under the shadows if you want. There’s a matte white base to brighten colors and a black shade to darken them.
I think that the name, Glitter Bomb, is a ref to something that anyone who plays with glittery makeup knows. “That shadow is a glitter bomb!” You know, when it gets all over the place, which you have to expect when you’re working/playing with glitter sometimes. And it happens here.
This lives up to its name. It is a glitter bomb, but it helps to layer a little glitter glue on your lids first, and then apply the glitters with a wet brush.
Also, for sure, do you eyes first. Then clean up whatever bits land on your face after you’re done. Or, you can just leave the glitter in you brows and on your nose like you meant to do it, haha. Like I said…ALL. IN.
The soft powders feel almost creamy, and they’re relatively easy to blend into each other and atop the white and black bases, which I like. I also like that Too Faced varied the size and intensity of the glitter flecks, so that the palette isn’t one intensely glittery note.
Some of the shadows, like Confetti, have large (but not too big) pieces and a single tinted based, while other shades, like Oh It’s On, which is a warm brass shade that flashes to greenish gold (sounds weird, but it works), have extremely fine golden flecks.
And then we have Glitter Goals, and OH, MY LANTA. It’s like a taupe-y-grayish-bluish-periwinkle that flashes teal, and it has the cutest petite pieces of pink glitter. Buffing out the edges reveals a gorgeous grayish teal undertone that I wish I could have in a HUGE pan. I’d be one heckuva happy wannabe drag queen!
So, yeah. It’s a little messy, but it’s tons of fun too. If you’re in the mood to play with, say, some crazy false lashes, or if you wanna dress up in ’80s makeup inspired by the wrestling ladies of GLOW (now I know what I’m going to do this weekend!), this is the palette to do it with.
