I recently got the Too Faced Glitter Bomb Eyeshadow Palette. In all honesty, it is highly inspired by the Urban Decay Moondust Palette, which is also a glitter eyeshadow palette.
Some of the colors are quite same and so is the packaging. While the MoonDust engraved on the cover of the palette is left empty, Too Faced has filled its engravings with gorgeous colors of actual glitter. I am rather tempted to take that glitter out and use it. 😛 And honestly, I would have really loved the stunning bright colors of glitter in the palette itself; maybe Too Faced could do that for their next palette.
In terms of texture, Urban Decay palette is the true glitter palette in my opinion. It’s very sparkly and glittery, pretty much exactly what you would prefer your pressed glitter to be. While the Too Faced has a more ‘metallic eyeshadow with sparkles’ kind of feel to it, the texture of Too Faced eyeshadows is very soft and smooth. Also, the Two Faced palette includes two bases – brightening base (a white eyeshadow) and intensifying base (black eyeshadow).
I really appreciate the inclusion since it is almost educating regular users on how to play with different colors and create different looks with a light and a dark base underneath. Also, TF mentions that you can use their glitter glue with these eyeshadows to create a different look. Well, they should have included a mini tube of it in the palette.
Although I love both the palettes but if I really really have to pick one as a true glitter palette, it would be the Urban Decay Moondust palette.
I have added comparative swatches for the colors that are similar in both the palettes.
Here’s description of colors in too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette. You can check the colors description of Moondust palette HERE.
- Fairy Dust: a pale beige with gold sparkles.
- Confetti: a pale whitish lavender with pink gold sparkles.
- Hot damn: a plummy purple with fuchsia sparkles.
- Glitter Goals: a very interesting pewter color with pale pink sparkles.
- Rose all Day: a pale rose pink with muted gold sparkles.
- Work it : a warm copper with gold sparkles.
- Oh, It’s On! a medium gold with green sparkles.
- Splash : a cool toned greenish blue with green and gold sparkles.
I would definitely use both the palettes, in fact, I would be obsessed but I am just more bent towards the UD Palette. It’s much sparkly than the Too Faced palette and it’s a true glitter for me.
