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.

Gumdrop has a transparent, more emollient base with a mixture of small glitter pieces and small-medium and more mid-sized hexagon-shaped glitter. It read more grayish-lavender but the glitter pieces reflected and gave me orange, copper, green, and pink hues as well.
The larger hexagon-shaped pieces of glitter did not stay well and were very often found anywhere but I applied it after a few hours, and they were extremely easy to dislodge when applied (e.g. if I attempted to even out/get the piece to lay flat on my skin, it was more likely to fall off than be manipulated). The finer pieces were more manageable and had good dispersion overall.
This shade does include plastic glitter, and it comes with the warning that it is not intended for use on the immediate eye area.
