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.

Mare Serenitatis is a medium-dark pink base with moderate, warm undertones paired with flecks of larger, gold glitter. It contains plastic glitter, which comes with the warning that it isn't intended to be used around the eye area. As far as the brand's Pressed Glitters go, this actually had a significant base color that came through, so it was more like a blend of typical eyeshadow along with glitter.
It had good coverage in a single layer, but the glitter distributed a little unevenly and seemed a bit more prone to migration than Pressed Glitters I've tried that have a more translucent base. I'd still say vastly improved over products like it from a few years ago, but I'd still recommend using it with an adhesive base to minimize fallout/migration.
