July 1st is my birthday, and a milestone birthday this year. To mark the occasion, I wanted to blog about something so me, and what’s more me than pizza? It was the first word I could read! For my bridal shower, I heated up some Bagel Bites during the shower. As I told my friend’s mom, “It ain’t a Jessica Party without pizza!”
Glamlite’s claim to fame is the original Pizza Palette. I do not have that one yet, but it’s on the list, among many other amazing eyeshadow palettes in Glamlite’s lineup. Do not sleep on Glamlite. The pigments are beyond impressive. I am so shocked at how buttery and intense and metallics are. Not only are the pigments powerful, but the amount of creativity and thoughtfulness goes beyond my expectations.
I am writing a blog about the Cake Palette too, however, I will take it on vacation with me and take a picture of it with a cake. Plus, there’s no way I can get two posts done in time for my birthday. I swear, even a simple blog post has 60 revisions!
Glamlite does NOT skimp on packaging design. As an art/ design professional, I totally appreciate this.The Pizza Slice palette is packaged in a Sbarros-like pizza box. A photograph of a meat lover’s pizza is on the palette cover itself. They also have a Veggie Lover’s Palette. I am not a green eyeshadow wearer, nor will I eat a veggie pizza. Absolutely not. I wont even pick them off. The cheese has been tainted. But the Meatlovers has all the colors I would wear (and have been wearing!), plus I’d eat the shit out of that pizza if my gallbladder didn’t betray me!
You can purchase this palette at Glamsite’s website. This retails at $22, but remember to always look up coupon codes!
I ended up re-swatching this palette because it looks like the mattes dragged on my arm during swatching. It’s not going to look like that on your eye. The formula isn’t patchy. We can blame my dry, aging ass skin. (It might have to do something with the primer not being all over my arm.)
The original pizza palette has many of the same shade names, however they are completely different. So don’t get confused! I am sure she needed to use the same names so they’d make sense for the Meat Lover’s Palette, and so you don’t have duplicate shades if you have both palettes. Yet another thoughtful choice!
These are my descriptions of the shades:
- Meatballs- Warm terra cotta
- Pepperoni- Red-orange with a slight frost.
- Chicken- Metallic copper with gold sparkle
- Ham– Metallic lilac with gold sparkle
- Bacon- Metallic Taupe with sparkle
- Salami-Frosted Oxblood
- Canadian Bacon– Matte dark coral-red
- Crushed Red Pepper– Matte red
- Red Onions– Matte red-violet
- Sausage– Matte reddish brown
I will definitely be wearing this and KKW’s Opalescent palette tomorrow. These two will look great together!
I started making my wishlist for this post, but you know what? I want them ALL. They are creative, of things I like, and I am pretty sure the quality will be consistent.
Mikayla x Glamlite looks amazing and if it’s still available to order, I’ll buy it later this month. I must also have the Paint Palettes- Hello! I am an artist. The painter kind that uses palettes like this! Of course there is Burger, Taco, Donut, Pie, etc. They’re just too fun and they make great gifts! I have given two palettes to friends for their birthdays this year and they loved them!
Pictured below is what I have so far. I will blog about Cake and Red Velvet after my vacation.
I grabbed these screenshots from my personal Instagram. Here I present to you, my food obsession:
Pie in the Sky pizza highlighter from Touch of Glam Beauty on Etsy. You can buy this here.
Pjs by Victoria’s Secret PINK.
Pinthrill enamel pizza pin. Purchased at Nordstrom.

Bow & Drape, found at Nordstrom. It’s years old, so it’s sold out.
I don’t remember what store this was or what brand the card is from.
I had 3 birthdays in a row at Round Table Pizza in Oakland. I might be 8 and 9 in these photos.

And a meme I found on Instagram (not made by me.)
Those kids are NOT wrong. Indeed, I cannot manage going up and down hills and I will soon die.
Disclaimer: I have purchased these palettes on my own, with my money. I have not been sent PR. There are no affiliate links, but there is a link to my own online store. Any profit made from that will go toward removing my blasted gallbladder so I can eat pizza without pain.
