I am on a roll with trying out my new eyeshadow palettes from Glamlite Cosmetics. This week, I took the time to wear-and-compare with the Veggie Lovers Pizza Slice palette. This palette is priced at $22 USD, which is a pretty affordable price range for cute packaging and 10 eyeshadows. So, is it worth your coins? Keep reading to find out!

If you are familiar with Glamlite’s products you know sturdy and cute packaging is to be expected. There is no exception with the Veggie Lover’s Pizza Slice palette, either. This palette comes housed in a pizza slice designed box, with the “pizza” eyeshadow palette inside. It’s pretty legit! This palette is small enough to be travel friendly and I haven’t found it to take up too much storage space in my makeup drawers (unlike the Burger palette).
This pizza slice palette comes with 10 eyeshadows with metallic and matte finishes. The pan size is typical of what you’ll find with most eyeshadows, like Mac. They are not oversized pans like Juvia’s Place, or even the Burger palette I previously reviewed. I fell in love with the color story as it is perfect for Fall/Winter looks. Plus, I don’t own very many green eyeshadows so this was an opportunity to add more to my collection. It reminds me of the Juvia’s Place Tribe palette, with a few more options.
The palette comes with a plastic insert to keep dust away from your shadows. I also like how the names are printed on the palette for each color.
There is no doubt that this color story is beautiful! There is quite a bit you can do here with these shades. You can be bold and daring with a green and black Halloween look, or keep it simple with a bronze and brown Every day look. I like versatility! I find that olive green eyeshadows are popular this season and here’s a way to add some to your collection without blowing a hole in your pocket.
I had my mind made up by Look #3 of using this palette, so I didn’t do my usual 4-5 looks with this one.
Colors Used: Yellow Peppers, Basil, Garlic, Jalapeños, Green Peppers, Spinach, and Black Olives
Colors Used: Yellow Peppers, Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, and Garlic
Colors Used: Yellow Peppers, Olives, Basil, Mushrooms, Jalapeños, and Garlic
I bet you’re wondering why this palette didn’t knock it out of the park in terms of ratings! Honestly, the formula of the metallic shadows was not what I expected. Coming from the Burger palette, with their rich metallics (and special formula ones, too) the metallics in this palette were lacking. On the third use I began to get “hard pan” wether I used a brush or fingers for application. In fact, finger application with the metallics seem to give me the only color pay off and coverage. :O I am just as surprised as you are, at that! I was pretty disappointed with the performance of the metallics compared to the other palettes. The shades are still workable, I just have to work a little harder than I am used to, to build up the pigmentation. Thankfully, with that much building, the shadows do blend out smoothly and don’t cake up on the eye.
Overall, I really enjoyed the looks I came up with, but if you’re looking for one swipe coverage with metallic shadows, these may not be it. As for the mattes, they performed beautifully with no issues.
