Give Me Glow is an “indie” brand that I’ve heard the most feedback/buzz about their eyeshadows. Though I’ve tried to grab a few palettes during a restock, I’ve been too slow! While I didn’t get all the palettes I was hoping for, I did pick up three, which you’ll find swatched in this post: Summer Vibes (12-pan palette, $54), Extra Spicy (9-pan palette, $41), and Grunge (9-pan palette, $41).

Summer Vibes, Extra Spicy, Grunge

I’m a long time fan of Give Me Glow and have all their palettes. The quality is great and their customer service is good, too. I never hesitate to buy any palettes they put out. I like them so much I’ve toyed with buying their single shadows but I prefer pre-made palettes. Then again, I’d like to have all their eye shadows!

Quite the aspiration! They have so many shades. Even at my Costco-level of buying, my threshold was reached after three palettes and 58 singles, LOL. I was like, “Okay, okay, that’s enough, let’s see how it goes!”

I love that “Costco level of buying” description. I’m not quite at that level but after seeing all the swatches you did of the single GMG shadows, that could be an issue for me as well.

I’m saying “yes” to that Grunge Palette! Perfect for fall/winter, I think.

But, I also love the other two for more spring/summertime looks. These all look so richly pigmented and smooth. Here’s hoping that they apply just as nicely as well, and that the mattes blend out easily!

I have the Grunge palette and some of their singles. The mattes are on the drier side, but they blend pretty well. The dark shades are very pigmented, so just be careful!

wow, 41 dollars for a 9 pan… that is absurdly expensive, especially for an indie brand. They do look lovely, but at that price point I really expect better packaging than Colourpop level packaging.

Indies do have to balance cost of production vs. consumer price a lot more carefully than larger companies, so it seems like they’re probably trying to make it more affordable while still actually turning profit. I think that Sydney Grace’s pre-made palettes are about in the same range, and AFAIK the quality between the singles and the palettes is very similar; many corporate brands cannot say the same thing because a palette is often a cut corner kind of release anyway.

I still remember when palettes were rare and mostly for MUAs and regular people just bought singles. It wasn’t until corporate makeup companies realized how much more profit they could pack into palettes (at our expense) that palettes became the norm.

All of this is to say that for the product itself, I think the pricing is fair. I can’t say much about the packaging. I don’t mind cardboard palettes myself, but everyone is different.

Give Me Glow is one of the best indie brands on the market and their eyeshadow pans are like the size of Juvia’s place shadows. They are magnetic so they can be taken out and put into other magnetic palettes. The quality of their shadows and packaging is a step up from Colourpop in my opinion. For me, they are worth the investment.

I get the sticker shock. We all have different places in which we like to put our money. For those of us that buy, they have sales, and many youtubers have codes for them. Considering the stellar quality and huge pan size, and some of the more creative color stories, they really are worth it to those of us who buy from them.

If the packaging is unacceptable related to the price, ColourPop is still a good bang for buck.

The shadow pans in the palettes are full-sized? And are the pans removable? (are these magnetic palettes?) I really like Grunge palette. I wish I could see swatches of the Vintage Rose and the Olive palette.

The eyeshadows are the same size as the singles, so they are larger (0.105 oz.). I could see any space around the edge of the pan to pull them out, so I think they are glued in from what I could tell – I tried to latch onto one edge but destroyed part of the palette itself and didn’t feel the pan giving at all.

I’m so sorry – I bought what was available 🙁 My apologies for not having what you needed!

Oh dear! I’m so very sorry your palette is partly destroyed! I did not mean for that to happen!

And please don’t feel the need to apologize for not having the other palettes! I’ve never even heard of this brand and only checked out what was missing when you mentioned that there were other palettes you hoped to get but couldn’t. I’m on a no-buy until wildfire season is over anyway (a lot of shipments aren’t making its way over I think bc of wildfires).

Their palettes are magnetic but their pans fit too perfectly in their slots (same issue with Kylie Cosmetics), so I either end up ruining the packaging or digging my nail into a shadow when I try to depot them.

Grunge looks amazing, and the color story is much more evocative of the 90s than a lot of other 90s themed makeup releases. That said, IDK if I could justify having it in my collection right now since I just got the Juvia’s The Taupes mini palette, and the shades calling to me from Grunge are very similar to ones in The Taupes. (I also legitimately love the crap out of The Taupes and IDK that I’d even want to stray from it at all anyway.) Maybe post-COVID I could justify more dupes again.

Never heard of them, but I’m not dialed in. I rarely watch beauty vlogging and rarely step beyond the labels I know and love at this point. These swatches have my attention.

I’m so happy to see swatches of these palettes! They’re the ones I’ve been contemplating on buying. Give Me Glow makes great eye shadows! I have the “Christmas Morning” and “Vintage Rose” palettes and I really love them both.Kept putting all 3 of these palettes in my cart but never buying them. Looking forward to the reviews but your eye look using the ” Grunge” palette looks great!!

I’m glad you’re checking these out. I got a few of their palettes in May or June, including Grunge, and just recently got Vintage Rose. I’m really happy with the quality and color stories so far. Summer Vibes and Extra Spicy look really pretty.
