It’s no secret around here that I loves me some makeup, so when I get asked to do a cosmetic review I almost always
scream say “YES!!” Such was the case with the GlamPact™ by Glam-it. I mean, JEEPERS, look at the thing! Who wouldn’t want to review this? The GlamPact™ is just a very cool tool – a refillable, lit, rechargeable, customizable compact that holds all your makeup and brushes. Pretty darn nifty. Here’s what I liked the most about it.
First, the design: it really is small. I’ve had other refillable compacts that don’t hold much and therefore just aren’t that useful. And I’ve had larger ones that hold much more but are a pain to lug around and store. The GlamPact™ is a compact that is small and yet functional. Whee! Who knew? It holds two shades of pressed powder, 3 eye colors, 3 lip colors, blush, highlighter, bronzer, and brushes. It folds up nice and small when you’re done with it and everything stays in place really well. And also? THE LIGHT! It’s super-bright, and it last hours and hours between recharges.
Now, on to the makeup. Glam-it makeup is supposed to have stuff in it that is good for you: anti-aging and moisturizing stuff. I’ll just take their word for it because obviously I can’t really tell if that’s true or not but I can tell you it is very good quality makeup. I like the pressed powder a lot, unfortunately I don’t have perfect enough skin to wear it on it’s own, but it does a great job over my foundation and also works well for touch-ups. It’s very light but stays on well. The blush I just love; it has just the right amount of pigment and shimmer and wears very well. I also love the highlighting powder – I am a highlighting powder ADDICT. If I were to customize my GlamPact™ I’d probably ask for TWO servings of highlighting powder!! It’s lovely, a bit darker than I usually use but it still gets the job done and stays on well. I’m not as big on bronzer but the bronzer seems to be of the same high quality as its counterparts.
Now, on to eyes! Glam-it provided me with three very lovely neutral shades: a cream, a light brown, and a black. I used the black as eyeliner to give the shadows an extra-thorough test. I can say these are a very good quality. They are super-pigmented and a little goes a long way. That’s also the only con; it’s easy to use too much. But it stayed on great, even the black eye shadow used as eyeliner on my lower lash line. It’s great stuff.
Finally, on to the lipstick. The lipstick was my least favorite part. It’s just a little too sheer for me. Now, if you like your lip color a little more sheer and shiny, you will love it! It’s just not my favorite genre of lipstick. However, it does go on really well (it’s been ages since I applied lipstick with a brush!) and feels fabulous on your lips. Very moisturizing and a lot of shine. What it lacks is just a matter of taste, I think, and not quality.
All in all, I was quite impressed with the GlamPact™! I wish I had enough self-control to restrict myself to that small amount of cosmetics. If you like your makeup high-quality and portable, you will love a GlamPact™. Check out Glam-it’s website if you want to pre-order one!
