Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue - Review & Swatches
July 22, 2012
Before I discovered the wonderful world of YouTube and blogging, I had never heard of primer. Face primer, eye primer, none of it.
This product is a primer, or glue, by Too Faced that insures your glitter, pigments and eye shadows stay on all day. Primer is the essential step if you want your makeup to last all day long.
Let's talk about the product itself.Packaging:
The packaging is exactly how you would expect it. Too Faced products are always very beautifully packaged. It does not come in a box, atleast mine didn't. I purchased mine from Sephora. I like the little added design of the holographic background to accent the words "gitter glue". The squeeze tube gives the perfect amount and I feel will last a long time.
The product looks and feels like a glue. The amount shown above will do both your eyes and may even be too much. It is easy to blend but I advise letting it dry completely before applying product. The blendability of shadows over top becomes a bit more difficult though I must say.
I have tried it with pressed shadows, piments and glitter and it really does keep them all stuck, like glue. That being said, it washes off as if you didn't have anything extra on. Your makeup will stay all day and night, no exaggeration.
and by itself on the Right.
Primers also have an extra benefit, which is they bring out the vibrancy of your shadows. The photo above shows the difference primers make to an eye shadow.
I have not tried many primers in my time, but I love this one. I can tell the difference in the longevity of my shadows when I use this. For very oily lids, eye shadow really doesn't last very long and creases horribly. On days that I wear a lot of eye makeup, Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue is a must. If you wear glitter looks often, hate fall out, love pigments and just want your makeup to stay on all day, you will love this!
Price: $20 CAD / $18 USD
