Quick update....wore the darker palette today and it’s definitely more pigmented and blends very nicely on the face. I had the same issue with the bronzer as it required some building up. I’m not sure if I’ll be keeping this. I need to try it out for a few more days. Overall, I don’t think I could recommend either....especially at that price tag.If you’re interested in either of the glowgasm palettes, I highly recommend checking them out in person or waiting for more reviews. My first impression of the lighter palette is that it’s just too light. For reference, I’m an NC20, Armani #4 . The bronzer is so hard pressed that it takes many, many layers to build up any color on the face. The highlighter (upper left) is almost identical to the film star bronze and glow. The two colors on the right give a really nice duochrome color when layered together on the face but, again, it’s all glow and little pigment. By the time you build it up enough to get any payoff it’s so much glow that it emphasizes texture.
I’m trying the darker palette tomorrow. Since those colors are darker and deeper, I’m hopeful there will be more color payoff.
