Too Faced's Glamour To Go Palettes I and II




I purchased these two palettes from Sephora over the holiday for about 20 bucks each. They're great investments for makeup beginners. They come complete with 8 eyeshadows, 4 glosses, and a blusher. Everything is quite pigmented, only downfall are the glosses. Although I've only tried one of the glosses, I can already say that I won't be trying the others. haha. I think they're just way too thick and way too sticky. I made a freaken mess out of one of the glosses just trying to dig out some color to use.

Palette number ONE: The pink one

Although three out of the eight shadows are a bit chalky, the decent pigmentation makes it worth the buy. The purple shadow is my favorite. The blush is pretty. Glosses-don't quite like them. The only thing that bothers me (besides the overly sticky glosses) is that the chalky shadows have too much shimmer. I feel like too much shimmer takes away from the pigmentation of a color. If I were to pick one palette over the other, I'd probably buy the other one....which brings us to our next subject...

Palette number TWO: The black one

This is the better palette of the two. All the colors are beautiful, perfect for day or night use. The blush is very pretty. All the shadows are shimmery but not too shimmery. you know? haha. The top-right color is gorgeous!

Here are the swatches..

I have the black one and i wasn't impressed ... perhaps I should dig it back out ... the glosses I liked but i do understand about the stickiness and the blush was pretty but the shadows were not lasting even with shadow insurance :(
