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.

MAC Glitz Please Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warmer undertones and flecks of silver glitter over a metallic finish. They're intended to be applied with fingertips, but in reality, they can be applied with brushes as well if preferred. It had good pigmentation applied with fingertips or with a dry brush but a wet brush definitely amplified the intensity and made the base color appear deeper and more opaque.
I would recommend using an adhesive spray or base with these just to ensure that all of the glittery bits intact, even though the product has good adhesion on its own. It does have light fallout over time, and if more vigorously blended, a bit of fallout during application as well. This newer shade in the formula actually seemed creamier and smoother, a little finer. On me, this shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours with light fallout over time.
Per MAC, the Shiny Pretty Shadow formula is "safe for contact lens wearers" and "ophthalmologist tested," and they are designed to be used as eyeshadows.
