I know beauty brands don’t relish comparisons, but I can’t help think of Too Faced whenever anyone mentions Benefit. I feel like the former is what the latter wants to be – playful and novel, but grounded in great quality. I’m delighted that it’s becoming more readily available in Ireland, and that it’s launching new product at a rate of knots too. More, please!
The latest item that’s being teased is the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette. It consists of eight glitter shadows and two bases – dark and light.
It’s a cute idea, but useful too. Granted, glitters aren’t going to get a lot of use during your 9-t0-5, but they can breathe new life into the nine billion neutral brown palettes that you definitely own.
I’d be all over the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette as a piece of kit to dust over a smoky eye, but the base shades are what turn me on. They’re key to getting an intense wash of shimmer, and I’m glad that Too Faced included them in the palette, when a lot of brands would have taken the opportunity to flog a separate glitter base.
Now, the bad news. The US launch date this is very far way, June 2017. The worse news? There’s no Irish launch date. In fact, as it stands, the Glitter Bomb palette is not expected to launch outside the US.
If you’ve fallen in love, the Too Faced website might offer a workaround. They ship to Ireland, and they guarantee you won’t be hit with extra charges when your haul arrives. Not as handy as popping into Debenhams, but it’s something.
