I realized I don’t do as many reviews as I thought I should, especially around makeup items so I’m going to try and start to do more.First one I have for you is a palette I absolutely love, and it’s the Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland Palette. I’ve used it in a couple of tutorials and I’ve had it for about a month and a half now, which I guess is more than sufficient in terms of time to play around with it and the colors and such.There’s a picture of everything it comes with… it’s the insert that comes in the box so you can get a peak of what you’re buying at the store. I got mine at Sephora, (and it was a Sephora Exclusive I believe…) which unfortunately doesn’t have them in stock anymore. It was $49 and considering you get 15 eyeshadows, 2 full sized products, a blush and a bronzer, it’s a total steal. Although the palette itself isn’t in stock anymore, the reason I’m reviewing it is so you guys can get my opinion on the individual items that comes within the palette (shadows, Shadow Insurance, lip gloss etc).
There are 3 distinct finishes in the palette. A frosty/metallic, a duochrome with glitter and matte.The frosty colors are very easy to thick, and are very much like the Urban Decay frosts, which are soft and very shiny. Some of the Mac frosts aren’t as foil like as these are. The duochromes are also very pigmented, very much like the Mac Pigment duochromes. These come with glitter inside them though, which sometimes show up on the eye, sometimes don’t. Depends on the color. The mattes are amazing in this palette. Not chalky or sheer at all, and are extremely soft.
Colors range from neutral to bold, with some brighter pinks and such in between. The first row has the five lightest colors: In The Buff (matte), Exclusive (matte), George & Weezie (frost), Velvet Revolver (matte), Honey Pot (frost). I apologize for taking the photos after I swatched them, normally I photograph first then swatch. I just… absentmindedly touched them before I got to photographing them.
In the Buff is a very light yellow cream matte color. Extremely soft, very easily blended. Great highlight color for the brow. I use this one the most of the colors actually. It’s not chalky at all which is the best part of these mattes. It builds very well also. You can go from a sheer matte to a very thick cream color in just a little bit of building the color.This is a more pink skin tone color. Also very pigmented and soft, not chalky. There’s probably a dupe in the Mac permanent line to this, maybe Mylar, but they’re not as pigmented as this one is.I never understood what “buttery” was in terms of eye shadows until this came along. It’s coincidentally a buttery, shimmery yellow color, but it goes on buttery and smooth. Super blendable. It’s gorgeous. Reminds me a lot of Easter. Great lid color as well as highlight color. I think because it’s so pigmented, it’d show up on deeper skin tones as well.Matte, skin toned tan color. Sort of the same color as Hoola by Benefit, which is a matte bronzer. It’s got the same formula as the other mattes in the palette. I feel like the name doesn’t fit in with the rest of the palette but oh well. Terrific transition color.Warm gold frost. Very similar to Half Baked by Urban Decay. It’s definitely more orange than the standard gold shimmer, which would make it beautiful against blue eyes. This isn’t that spectacular of a color since it’s similar to Woodwinked by Mac as well. Very pigmented though.In The Buff, Exclusive, George & Weezie, Velvet Revolver, Honey PotSwatches with no flash (left), and flash (right).
Second row has the jewel toned colors, for the fun bright lids. These would also be colors that people with deeper or tanner skin tones might gravitate towards. These are also colors that are more common in many different brands like Mac, Nars, some drugstore brands like L’Oreal Hip etc.
Matte tan, about two shades darker than Velvet Revolver. I used this in the crease just to sculpt out the eye before and the blendability of it made it so it didn’t look like I was wearing too much makeup. It would be a good transition color for some as well.It reminds me of a lighter version of Contrast by Mac, slightly more purple as well. Has a slight lighter blue iridescence to it. Slightly more orange than Swish by Mac. Frost finish. The frost in this has a little hint of gold to it. It’s not a color that I would regularly use at all, because I really don’t use pink that often.Peach with a gold shimmer shot through it. Good lid color, the gold shimmer doesn’t show up as much as I’d hoped it would though.Probably my favorite color of the set, just not very unique. Almost the exact same color as Teal pigment by Mac, just less pigmented. I would hope the pigment is more pigmented though since it’s a pigment. Frosty finish.Teddy Bear, Exclusive, Boy Toy, Peach Fuzz, ExclusiveSwatches on left with no flash, swatches on right with flash.
Another name that just doesn’t seem to fit with the palette but oh well. It’s a dark brown with a very strong teal duochrome. Inside there’s a rainbow sparkle that’s gorgeous. The sparkle isn’t as strong when applied but sometimes you can see it’s really there. It’s very much like Blue/Brown pigment, just the duochrome is more teal. Sort of like Club eyeshadow by Mac. Club isn’t as pigmented. Very cool, very unique. Probably the most unique color of the bunch.Frosted rose gold color. Reminds me a lot of Rage nail polish by Orly. It’d make a very cool lid color for not the standard smokey eye. You could also use this as a lid color for just a neutral lid. Dark plum with a gorgeous blue/purple duochrome shot through it. Has some fine micro glitters as well. The duochrome in this isn’t as strong as Label Whore, which is lame because if this were as strong then it’d be awesome. It’s a wonderful crease color though.Probably the most strong, pigmented foiled silver shadows ever, aside from Platinum pigment by Mac, which is again, supposed to be like that because it’s a pigment. It goes on very strong, and doesn’t flake at all. It’s so smooth though. And it goes on so strong. It’s amazing.Very strong, neutral matte black. Not chalky. I say neutral because it’s not warm or cool. It’s just neutral. It doesn’t stray towards dark gray either. You can build it easily so it doesn’t just go on straight black to begin with. Blends will too so you don’t just have a patch of black on the eye. And I love the name.
