Anastasia Gemini is a moderately warm-toned, dark gold with a glitter finish. It is a limited edition glitter.

NOTICE: All products categorized under "Glitter" contain Polyethylene Terephthalate, also known as plastic or PET glitter, and it is typically cosmetic grade glitter. Inclusion of this ingredient sometimes carries a warning (in the US) that the product is "not intended for use in the immediate eye area." This ingredient has not been approved for usage on the eyes per the FDA. In recent years, some brands are including this product in their eyeshadows without any warning or callout and effectively marketing them as eyeshadows or including a symbol of an "eye" which suggests eye usage. Via CosIng for EU, PET glitter is permitted without any restrictions or limitations. For an in-depth look at whether cosmetic grade glitter is safe, please view this post.

Editor's Review
Contains: Affiliate Links, Sample

Gemini has a transparent base with deeper gold glitter suspended in it. The base did not feel that emollient, and I felt like the glitter was too readily dispersed and moved around, so it was more likely to migrate, travel, or fallout (depending on how one worn it). It was supposed to be the brand's "more insanely pigmented glitter finish yet," but it was semi-opaque at best. It would not be something that would build well without an adhesive base paired with it.

This is the second of the new Pressed Glitter formula, but I was surprised it didn't adhere better to skin given the improvement in this type of formula by other brands. The brand said that "for self-application of pressed glitter shades, apply with fingertips using pressing motions," though they also said to use a fixing spray or their adhesive base (I'd recommend either of the latter based on my experience).

It does contain PET glitter, and it is listed as not for use in the eye area. I tested it as a cheek highlighter and found it dispersed somewhat unevenly when I tried to blend it out--worked better packed onto a small area--and had moderate movement/migration over an eight-hour period.
