Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette

No comments :
The Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette was something that caught my eye as soon as I started seeing sneak peeks of it. A whole palette of glitter shadows? Yes, please! I saw this get a lot of not so great reviews but honestly, I LOVE this thing!!
The outside is really cool because at first glance, it just looks like glitter letters. It's actually loose glitter that shifts around behind clear plastic!
Inside, you get a matte white brightening base, a matte black intensifying base, and 8 gorgeous, glittery shadows.
The brightening base isn't super pigmented, it's just a nice matte white.
Fairy Dust is a pale pink with gold sparkle.
Rose' All Day is a pale peach with pink and gold sparkle.

Confetti is a purply pink with pink and gold sparkle.
Hot Damn is a purple with pink sparkle.
Work It is a coppery orange with orange and pink sparkle.
Oh, It's On! is a gold with greenish duochrome.

Glitter Goals (my personal fave) is a gunmetal with multicolored sparkle.
Splash is a teal with gold sparkle.
The Intensifying Base is a matte black.

Now here are all the colors swatched over the brightening base, without flash and with flash:
And over the intensifying base:
Personally, I like just using the shadows on their own. I don't find that the bases do much for me. The black base definitely makes the colors look more gemtoned, but I think they're so pretty on their own that I rarely use them with the bases! There isn't too much fallout with these, which is great. They definitely intensify if you use a glitter glue or sticky base, but it's not absolutely needed, because most of these shades have pigment to them and aren't just loose and glittery, so they work well either all over your lid or over other shadows.

What I really like about these is that they're not hard to pick up on a brush. As much as I love the Urban Decay Moondust shadows, those things are a pain in the you-know-what to get pigmentation out of unless you apply them with your fingers. These give the same effect, but with less hassle!

I purchased mine from Sephora, but you can also grab it from Too Faced and Ulta!
