I love glitter and I really am a magpie for any type of sparkle. I hate glitter on the lips or face, but the eyes are a different story and I’m always looking for an excuse to wear glitter although I don’t love the fallout that comes with wearing glitter on the eyes. I’ve tried using pressed glitters such as the Glitter Tubes but they’re such an hassle to apply so I tend to prefer using glitter eyeliners whenever I want to add glitter to my eye makeup look. Until now I’ve been using the Collection Glam Crystal Eyeliners which are nice enough but they do cause fall out and removal is always a little messy as you end up with glitter all over your face post-cleanse and I always notice specks of glitter on my face the following day. Too Faced have just launched a brand new product which I think is going to revolutionise glitter application, and I couldn’t wait to try it for myself to see if it’d work?!
The Too Faced Glitter Pop Peel Off Eyeliners are £16 each and are available in a total of eight shades from Debenhams and Cult Beauty although you can order directly from the Too Faced website too. What makes the Too Faced Glitter Pop Peel Off Eyeliners so unique is that they claim to have a ‘peel off’ formula which I’ve never seen before and I have to admit I was sceptical as I couldn’t imagine how you could remove glitter through peeling it off.
Too Faced say:
“Paint on…Peel off for the most glamorously dramatic and fabulous liner ever. Innovative film formers lock down glitter that stays put until you peel it off. Don’t leave the glitter on the dance floor, leave it on your eyes–where it belongs!”
- Goof-proof application
- Easy to peel off with no glitter fall out
- Innovative film formers lock down glitter that won’t budge
- Mix and match colors or layer together for endless eye looks
The Too Faced Glitter Pop Peel Off Eyeliner comes packaged within an amazing holographic box which I know doesn’t matter but I always appreciate pretty packaging. The eyeliner comes in a clear plastic tube with a black lid, and a very slim brush applicator. From the shades available I have Lucky Bitch, which isn’t a name I like. I know I probably sound 100 but Too Faced are using increasingly more risqué names such as their new face mask which doesn’t sit well with me when they brand themselves as being more cutesy than the average beauty brand.
Lucky Bitch is a clear base with mainly golden glitter particles but there are also silver glitter particles, and is pretty saturated with glitter particles for a glitter eyeliner. Whenever I want a more subtle glitter effect, I just do one swipe of the brush but can intensify the glitter by multiple swipes although doing multiple swipes whilst the liner is still wet can move my eyeshadow around so I’d recommend waiting for each layer of liner to dry in between. I use a lot of gold and champagne shades within my eye makeup looks which all work well with Lucky Bitch, but I need Glitter Ghost in my life as it’s a holographic/duochrome shade which can be used with any eyeshadow shade so it’d be very versatile.
In terms of the peeling claims, it genuinely does peel off although if you apply in a light layer it’s very hard to peel, you have to pick it off rather than ‘peel’ but a thicker layer of the liner is easier to peel off similarly to how a peel off face mask works in that a thicker layer is easier to peel off. It delivers on its no fall out claim, as there is zero fall out and it’s super easy to remove with a makeup remover if you don’t want to have to peel it off. If you do have a thicker layer I’d recommend using a lighter layer towards the corners of the eyes as I found that is where the edges can lift up and a thin layer of glitter on the corners is less likely to lift up during the day. Other than that it’s a great glitter liner which is quick and easy to apply with zero fall out – what’s not to like?!
