Too Faced Glamour to Go Spun Sugar Edition Review & Swatches
Too Faced Glamour to Go Palette is back with a new Spun Sugar Edition for Holiday 2012. This light on the wallet $22 dollar palette features eight Too Faced Eyeshadows, a highlighter, a bronzer, a lipgloss, and a mirror all in one small palette making it travel and stocking stuffer friendly.
Take a look!
This year Too Faced’s Holiday 2012 Collection is inspired by decadent Parisian desserts and pastry shops. The Too Faced Glamour to Go Spun Sugar Edition has a dash of sugar, a dash of spice, and all things nice for your face, cheeks, and lips an an array of holiday metallic shades.
The brushed gold mirror palette is about the size of a credit card and houses two tiers of makeup. The first tier features eight eyeshadows in a variety of holiday golds and smoky shades for a more traditional holiday look! The second pull out drawer features a highlighter, gloss, and bronzer. I like that the palette is divided into two separate looks one for a warmer, natural look and the other for a smoky evening look. Unlike years past, this doesn’t contain bolder shades of color, Too Faced went with more traditional shades that you can get daily use of easily.
The shades aren’t Too Faced’s typical formula as they run far less velvety and more like a loosely packed pigment. They have a flakier texture which applies easily but does show some signs of fall out during application. The darker shades don’t face the same issue as they are fairly dense with more of a velvety texture. There is a good deal of sparkle and shimmer in the lighter shades that reflects very pretty on eyes but if not blended correctly can look frosty so take proper care during application to avoid this. All the colors produce fair to full pigmentation with the lighter shades being the sheerest.
The highlighter included is like a beefed up version of Candlelight. This is a golden pink with flecks of gold sparkle. It has to applied very sparely to avoid a discoball finish but when applied correctly if gives skin a soft glow. Very pretty!
Unfortunately, the gloss included is in the middle of the bronzer and highlight so it does create a bit of a mess with powders and creams in one location. I suggest putting the small plastic film that covers the eyeshadows over the gloss when not in use to avoid powder mixing in with it.
This year’s Too Faced Glamour to Go Palette is definitely a little different than years past. Being a lover of sparkle and shimmer I really liked it but I think a few folks might be disappointed as the lighter shades run sheerer and the palette lacks any vibrant, bolder shades of color.
If you can get past all that it’s an excellent little deal at $22 and will make a nice stocking stuffer, secret santa gift, or go on now you want it for yourself dontcha?
