Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Bonding: First Impression

 I picked this up when I went to Ulta on Tuesday, primarily because Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy was a total miss for me. I wouldn't bash it because I know a lot of people that like it, but it worked for a couple days then became incredibly "clumpy" and my eyeshadow balled up. So needless to say, I wanted another eyeshadow base that made my eye shadows/ glitter pop and adhere so well. I heard about they released it, and saw it and gave it a try. 
First Impression on this, it has the same feel as TFSI the regular one, but it is a tad pinker toned, and it is slightly stickier. It also has a very, very faint smell. But it is noticeable. Nothing crazy or that would irritate sensitive eyes, it goes away once it is on the skin. I like the packaging, I have always liked Too faced primers packaging. The holo glitter on the package where it says "Glitter bonding" is a nice touch as well :P In the last picture you will notice that I tried it out with an Eyekandy Glitter and on one side it is normal Too Faced Shadow Insurance and then next to it is the glitter bonding on! Amazing right? I will update once I test it out for a while :)


  1. Ooh, I've never heard of this! I have the Sally Girl glitter adhesive stuff and it works pretty well. I was just thinking about what a miss Pixie Epoxy was for me too, I was trying it again last night and I just can't stand it. If I want my shadows intense I foil, and it seems to make them even brighter than pixie epoxy.

    I saw this at Sephora and was wondering if it was good or not. Definitely need to buy this!

  3. WOW I love the packaging and you picked a great glitter color. Haha may need to pick up some myself.
