Last week, I went to Nordstrom Rack and saw Too Faced Galaxy Glam Collection. I was so drawn to the marbleized eyeshadows... wheee~ I wanted most of the colors, but the ones that spoke to me were the purple (Magenta Moon), green (Moon Beam), bronze (Mocha Meteor), and goldish-brown (Amber Asteroid).
Where can you purchase this: Sephora, Ulta, anywhere they sell Too Faced products, and Too Faced website (I got mine from Nordstrom Rack. It doesn't mean all Nordstrom Rack carries this. It's by lucky.)
Price: $19.50 for 3 g/0.1 oz (I got mine for $5.97)
Made in USA
Description on the website: Like metallic meteors from outer space throwing sparks of iridescent light across the night sky Galaxy Glam leaps into hyper-drive to deliver the most glamorous eye shadow look this side of the Milky Way. Futuristic Italian opalescent pigments are baked into each silver-domed shadow that mix together to produce a multi-dimensional smoky-eye light speed ahead of any mere earthly cosmetic product.
My thoughts: When I first saw this at Nordstrom Rack, my mouth dropped wanting everything... hehe~ I felt like a child at a candy store. :D After I calmed down and came to realization, I decided to only get one. I really wanted the green and the purple, but the question is when do I wear green and purple!?!?... lol~ :X It's a good thing I didn't get those colors... hehe~ I still want those color at the moment, but I think it'll be a waste since I hardly wear those colors. I, literally, sat there thinking about which brown to get. I even look on Makeup Alley on my cell phone to see what people thought about the colors. I decided Amber Asteroid would be the best fit for me... hehe~
I couldn't wait to play around with this baby... hehe~ I read on Makeup Alley that the mixture of color is gorgeous on the eyes especially in the sun. Out of curiosity, that's the first I played with... lol~
I liked the above look, but I felt it was kind of dirty for my taste... lol~ They said the eyeshadow can be used wet or dry. I was curious how the green swirl will look wet.
After playing around with the eyeshadow, I definitely recommend it. Even though you only get one eyeshadow, it's very versatile with the different colors. It lasts all day, both wet and dry, and out of curiosity I wanted to know if the swirl was only on the top. I chipped the eyeshadow on the side with a tooth pick to see if there were any green swirls inside. In my shock, I saw a brand new green swirl on the bottom of the brown!... wheee~

Remember my post on Tokidoki brushes? I wasn't too sure what to do with the cute, cheap plastic box it came with... hehe~
Dao) comment on it, but I thought it'll take up more space than I need... hehe~ I already use the MAC Hello Kitty brush set container for all my brushes. I just didn't want another container around. I got tired of laying my Tokidoki brushes, and decided I'll just use these for those brushes only... hehe~ I cut the plastic on the top, and filled it with the glass rock from Michael's (I had these from long time ago). I only keep the long Stila brushes (I only own two) and Tokidoki brushes. It's better this way than just laying my Tokidoki brushes everywhere... lol~ :X
