Cruelty-free and vegan beauty brand Glamlite Cosmetics has launched a pizza-themed vegan eye shadow palette.
Glamlite cosmetics describes its “Pizza Palette” as “the world’s most ‘delicious’ palette, fresh out of the oven and ready for delivery!”. It features 18 “toppings” to choose from with colors matching their names, from the earthy green “Basil” to the metallic purple “Red Onions,” and “Pineapple,” a shimmery gold.
The palette even comes in packaging that looks like a pizza delivery box. Its colors are highly pigmented, achieving full coverage for a wide range of skin tones.

🍕🍕🍕 BREAKING NEWS!!! THE PIZZA PALETTE HAS OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT IN UNDER 48 HOURS!!! 😱 THE PALETTE IS STILL AVAILABLE ON OUR SITE FOR A GUARANTEED PRE-ORDER AND ORDERS WILL SHIP OUT 12.28.18 IN THE ORDER THAT THEY ARE MADE! —————— I’ve received so many messages asking “what made you make the Pizza Palette?”. It’s true, the palette is completely different, out of the box and definitely stands out from everything out there, but that wasn’t the main reason I developed it. I have spent my entire life always feeling like I had to hide, thinking I wasn’t good enough for others. I’ve been teased about my weight ever since I was 12. The Pizza Palette was my way of saying “I love Pizza and I am free to live my life the way I want to”. I wanted to create a product to let others know it’s ok to be yourself regardless of what people say. I’ve actually seen a few comments of people commenting on my weight or my appearance on the pizza videos I made for this product but for the first time ever, it does not bother me. Makeup was meant to be fun and it’s meant to be an outlet to express yourself…not to change the real you. Pizza Palette was created to let others know that being different and unique can be a beautiful thing. Thank you to everyone for all of the amazing support! I love you all! -Gisselle Hernandez 🍕❤🙏
“I’ve always had a passion for makeup but have always felt out of place in an industry that frequently focuses on perfection,” said Glamlite Cosmetics founder and self-described Pizza Queen, Gissell Hernandez, in a statement. “The pizza palette is my way of saying I am free, I am no longer scared to be myself.”
Hernandez went on to share a personal story in a recent Instagram post. Replying to all of the questions about why she made the vegan Pizza Palette, she wrote that it’s her way of standing up against lifelong criticisms about her weight.
Paired with a photo of herself with the palette in a pizza-themed hoodie and room, she added, “I wanted to create a product to let others know it’s ok to be yourself regardless of what people say. I’ve actually seen a few comments of people commenting on my weight or my appearance on the pizza videos I made for this product but for the first time ever, it does not bother me. Makeup was meant to be fun and it’s meant to be an outlet to express yourself…not to change the real you.”
The vegan eye shadow palette, which launched on December 12, found its mark with pizza-obsessed cruelty-free beauty aficionados. Just one day after the release, Hernandez took to Instagram to announce that it had already sold out.
Glamlite Cosmetics’ Pizza Palette retails for $40 and is available for pre-order here.
