Glam To Go, perf for when you’re on the go!

18 Jan

I feel like I’m always on the go.  I wish I had 45 mins to primp myself every morning (actually more like 2 hours if I’m being honest), or even BETTER… have a beauty team that preps ME!  However, I’m not a Kardashian.  I work full time and everything else in my life is squeezed in between that.  Keeping Up with the Kardashians = reality tv?  Puh-leease!

For us gals on-the-go, boy do I have a treat for you.

Lets take a peek (if you have time)…

Website description:  Our purse-friendly beauty collection offers everything you need for the lips, eyes and face. Eight high-pigment, trend-setting shadows coordinate perfectly with the collection’s four versatile lip glosses and universal blush. Convenient mirror makes it simple to create a complete look or tuck away for easy touch ups.

The Too Faced Glamour to Go II is $19.50.  It comes with 8 eyeshadows (0.16oz), 4 lip glosses (0.04oz), and 1 blush (0.11oz).

Really neat concept, bravo Too Faced.  It’s small enough to keep in your purse (even a clutch if you’re out on the town).  It’s a the same size as a credit card and about 1/2in thick.

The bottom slides out to reveal the gloss and blush.  Click any image to enlarge.

My thoughts:  I can’t believe they packed so much product in this tiny package!  The eyeshadows are big enough that you can stick your brush in them without any trouble.  The actual eyeshadows don’t have great color payoff, they’re quite sheer.  They all also have a shimmer finish, I wish they would’ve put some mattes in there.  But really, for the price, I can’t complain too much.  They’re just not as good of quality as the regular Too Faced shadows.

The lip glosses are pretty, lots of shine!  A little nitpick though- it would be nice if they included a mini lip brush, since it’s an “to-go” palette.

And lastly, the blush.  The blush is great!  It’s goes on sheer but is buildable.  It lasts a good 6-7 hours.  It’s a pretty peach shimma color!  My favorite part of the palette!

Glitter rating 3.5 / 5

You can purchase this palette at Ulta, Sephora, or the Too Faced website.

On another note, this palette reminds of the part in Zoolander when he asks Hansel, “Do you have a cosmetics kit?”  Hansel responds, “Yeah, just for touch ups but…” Then he whips out a little kit that looks similar to this palette.  That leads to this scene: Computer Experts Scene from Zoolander Movie (2001) | MOVIECLIPS.  Anyone with me on that one?  Well, anyway…

    I love the colors in this palette. I appreciate your honest comments about it. I agree about there not being any mattes. Why don’t companies incorporate matte shades in their palettes? Frustrating. Thank you for the review and swatches 🙂

      You’re welcome! I know, it is frustrating! Too Faced actually just came out with an all matte neutral palette that looks neat! Check it out on their website!

    Hahaha as you were describing the zoolander scene, it was just playing out in my head. Love that movie! 🙂

    I’m not a big fan of eyeshadow or blush/lipgloss palettes, but this one doesn’t look too bad. The mirror looks like a great size, too. Thanks for the swatches Kayla!
