Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Is sad that this has literally made my life complete?! Literally I was heartbroken when they discontinued 3D glitters sometime last year! Omg I am so excited I can’t breath

When you have to photoshop the glitter onto the pictures, that says a lot about the product, I think! I’m not interested in glitter to start with, but these pics are an epic fail. I’m almost embarrassed for MAC…

I opened up the post (I love me some glitter), and there was kind of a sad trombone noise when I saw the speckles. I was hoping they were actually going to be printed on the packaging, and therefore legitimate (if goofy), but given the different way they appear on the silver glitter, I’m not so sure…

Oh dear, MAC! 😛

(the colour of the blurple glitter looks nice, at least!)

OMG so glad someone else noticed it. I was going to ask if MAC is giving away copies of Photoshop with the glitter. I will be very interested to see the reviews!

Al Avatar

Those photoshopped specks look ridiculous! And there I thought it couldn’t get any more fake-looking than that silly promo image for their Patent Polish Lip Pencils…

I just spoke with a Mac representative online and she said there are issues with the launch and it’s being pushed back until May 13th! 🙁

Giggle at the photos

Glitter attracts the crow in me, and I confess to wearing glitter nail polish and glittery eyeliner, but never ‘real’ glitter on my eyes. I’m not certain I have the chutzpah. I need to see someone, in my age group preferably to work it in a non-disco-queen kinda way. No smear intended to disco queens across the world..okay? you got it, girl..flaunt it~!

I AM SO EXCITED FOR THESE. The likelihood that I will buy and wear any of them is practically nil, but my inner lemming monster is helpless in the face of glitter >.< I found out yesterday that Beautylish has the entire Lit range properly photographed and swatched and promptly lost it — and unlike MAC, I've never even tried anything from Lit. (MAC, on the other hand: 3D Silver, be still my beating heart.)

I'm doomed! D:

I called today for 2 mac pro stores and none received the glitters! : (
Does the release date changed?
Online so far nothing! : (: (

I’m really looking forward to these! Hopefully they will be available in Germany next Friday when I visit the Pro Store. I’ve been wanting a black holographic glitter in ages! (And hopefully they look better in real life than they do here… Holographicness (?) is hard to capture in pictures sometimes. But this… ;D) If not, Christine, are you going to review these?

Joelle Avatar

For those that mention they use them – can you explain how? I was thinking *maybe* combining them with a mixing medium for lipgloss? On top of nailpolish? I LOVE glitter nailpolishes but I’m having a hard time coming up with ways to actually use these glitters (my eyes are too sensitive to consider around eye area).
