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

The formula is supposed to be "saturated pressed glitter eye shadow" that have "endless, shifting depth and dimension" that is designed to be applied with fingers. They contain plastic glitter, but the packaging showed a symbol of an "eye" and did not come with any warning/disclaimer about use; often, glitter comes with a warning of it not being intended for use on/around the immediate eye area (MAC does it with some of their loose glitters).

These are most definitely for the glitter lovers, and if you love a duochrome, then these might have your name stamped all over them. For as glitter-packed as the formula was, they felt smoother and nowhere near as dry/loose to the touch as a lot of glittery eyeshadows feel. I would describe the formula has medium, buildable coverage that applies... Read More.

These are most definitely for the glitter lovers, and if you love a duochrome, then these might have your name stamped all over them. For as glitter-packed as the formula was, they felt smoother and nowhere near as dry/loose to the touch as a lot of glittery eyeshadows feel. I would describe the formula has medium, buildable coverage that applies best with fingertips or a dampened brush. I would recommend using a glitter adhesive to maximize the hold over time, though these had nowhere near the fallout that I'd have expected--there was definitely more to the formula that helped the product adhere to bare skin and not succumb to gravity immediately. On their own, they creased faintly by the sixth hour of wear, had light fallout, but I kept them on for a good 10 hours, and there was additional fallout but still a significant amount of glitter stayed on my lid.

There wasn't anything in the product description that refers to them being used wet, but they seemed to apply slightly better with a dampened brush and had more hold using an adhesive spray/glitter glue (Fix+ helped minimize the fallout but not quite as well as a tackier glitter adhesive). This is one of those products that definitely looks more interesting and complex in person as all of the various pearls and glitters reflect and dance with the light. They did have a lot of dimension, shift, and depth as promised.

If you expect to use these dry and need to see zero fallout throughout the day, these won't win you over. If you like tons and tons of sparkle/glitter and don't mind a bit of fallout (or else are comfortable using a fixing spray or glitter adhesive), they're really gorgeous in person.
