I have another palette to review today. This is the Too Faced Glamour To Go Palette. I bought it offline at Sephora for $22. When I saw it, it looked so pretty and seemed like something super useful for days that you are on the go and have no time to go home and touch up. I was really excited to give this palette a go until I actually tried the products.
This palette comes with 8 eyeshadows, 1 blush, 1 bronzer and 1 lip gloss. I guess I didn't read something correctly because I thought that the lip gloss was a highlighter until I swatched it! I'm a little disappointed in that because I don't tend to go for palettes with lip glosses in them just because it is something I will never use. I'm a chapstick or tinted lip balm girl for the most part.
This is my first Too Faced product and I hate to say it but I wasn't too impressed. I had a high expectation for Too Faced cosmetics because it's a higher in brand and I've only heard good things about it. I'm very disappointed in this palette :( I kept wondering if maybe I got a bad one which does happen occasionally with makeup but after reading countless reviews on the product, it seems to be a standard issue. A lot of people suggested wetting it and using it that way so I may have to try that out some other day.
The swatches above are of the first 4 shadows on the top row. From left to right: bronzed gold, taupe, pale pink, golden-yellow.
The swatches above are the 4 shadows on the second row. From left to right: chocolate brown, shimmery white, silver blue, shimmery grey-black
The swatches above are the blush, lip gloss and bronzer. From left to right: Blush- rosy pink, Lip gloss- very pale pink, Bronzer- light brown with shimmer.
- I like the packaging- easy for throwing it in a makeup bag or purse
- Nice sized mirror
- Shadows aren't pigmented whatsoever- I had to keep building up the color but it still didn't look like it should
- Blush color looks like your natural "flushed" color which is pointless to wear
- Bronzer is glittery and not pigmented at all
- I don't like lip glosses that come in palettes so that was just a dud for me
I don't really suggest going out and spending $22 on this palette. It wasn't worth it to me. I don't know if I will ever try any other eyeshadow palettes from Too Faced again after this. It's such a shame :( Did any of you have a problem with any of the Too Faced brand items? Or have you tried this palette in particular and had the same results/or different results? I'm curious so let me know your experiences with Too Faced products!
