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.

ColourPop Cuteness Pressed Powder Shadow ($4.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a mix of darker peach and gold micro-glitter with larger, hexagon-shaped iridescent glitter pieces, which were all suspended in a transparent base. It had nearly opaque "coverage" from all of the glitter particles and pieces. The product does contain plastic glitter, and it was listed as not intended for use on the eye area.
The texture was emollient, very textured by touch (not a surprise based on the glitter!), but it had great spreadability and remained "even" in its coverage. The larger pieces could separate from the rest of the glitter particles and migrated more often than the finer pieces over an eight-hour period.
