MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection: Glitters & Reflects Glitters Review, Photos, Swatches


Gold Glitter

MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection: Glitters & Reflects Glitters

Part of the MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection includes two Reflects Glitters (Copper and Rust), two Glitters (Gold and Fuchsia).

Glitter ($19.50)

  • Gold is a shimmery, chunky gold glitter. It’s not a yellow-based gold, which is nice, and this looks particularly nice in the hair.
  • Fuchsia is a sparkling medium-dark purple chunky glitter. This is always fun to mix into hair spray or the like. I find the normal glitters too chunky to look as stunning on the lips as Reflects do.
  • Reflects Copper is a shimmery, glittering confection of orange copper. It is not eye-safe, so while it’s gorgeous to look at, I know there’s not much for me to do with it. Some things you can do with glitter that’s not eye-safe: mix with nail polish, mix with body lotion, mix with hair spray, and mix with lipgloss.
  • Reflects Rust is a rusty shade of orange-red. It’s just as glimmering as Reflects Copper, and the glitter is incredibly fine, but again, not eye-safe, which is just a bummer.

How do I use glitters if not on the eyes?

You can mix in glitter with all sorts of products. I like the Reflects the most for mix-ins, just because it is a finer grade glitter. It’s particularly nice on lips and mixed with lotion/moisturizer and used on legs and shoulders. For the regular glitters, I think they look nice when spritzed into the hair or mixed with nail polish.

  • Product: 9/10
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 6/10
  • Packaging: 8/10

Recommendation: As much as I adore the way Reflects glitters look and feel, I find myself rarely using them. All of the glitters are beautiful shades, though they are also permanent at PRO stores, so you don’t have to hurry if you’re on a budget.  I also distinctly remember glitters being priced less than pigments, so I’m not sure why that changed.

To Anitacska, you can put glitters in nail polish, you can use them as a glitter eye liner (of course, after you’ve sprayed some Fix+ to your brush, I would try this only on your top lid!!) Mix it with a colored lipglass to get a glittery lipgloss shade, get some hair gel and mix the glitter in with it, rub the two together and run it through your hair, to have the “glitter” hair look, if you like that sort of thing…. 🙂

Transform your pigments using clear MAC gloss and mixing it with a pigment, instant lipgloss!!! Pick up some pigment on your shadow brush, and spray the pigment with fix+, turns into eyeshadow!! Search youtube, it’s some vids that offer ideas on how to use MAC glitters and pigments, hope this helps!!!

Avoiding the chunky glitters- fuschia and gold. Pretty colors nevertheless. The reflects are really pretty and i’ll definitely be putting those to good use.
