Whenever I see a new palette, especially from a brand that I love, I get super excited. When I was at Too Faced the other week I noticed that they had a new palette out called Glitter Bomb. The really sparkly colors in it stood out to me and I knew that I had to get this palette.
So what is it, you are probably wondering. It's basically a glittery eyeshadow palette with 8 sparkly shades. It also comes with matte white and blacks to use as base colors. The colors can be worn on their own but I think they work best with a base on.
As this is a glitter palette I do think it is best to wear an eyeshadow primer to stop the glitter from falling down and to make sure your eyeshadow stays on all day. I preferred to use the matte black as a base. The black had a really good amount of pigment and worked as a really good base for the glitter.
There are so many good colors of glitter to choose from and once the base color was on I just layered the glitter colors on top and made them look very intense. The glitter went on more like an eyeshadow rather than a glitter. What has put me off glitter before, is how loose and easy it is to drop down. With the glitter in this palette, once it is on it doesn't transfer or drop down and stayed on all day without creasing or fading.
Also available and sold separately to this palette is the Glitter Glue Shadow Primer which is designed to keep the glitter on all day. It did have a bit of a sticky feel to it, but not very tacky as you would think a glue would be. The sticky feel isn't really a problem, but as I used the Urban Decay Shadow Primer as a base underneath all of the other colors, I found that the Glitter Glue was unnecessary as my Urban Decay primer kept the glitter in place. The Glitter Glue would be good if you didn't have a good eyeshadow base already.
The colors in this palette look amazing and look even better on.
