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

MAC Joy To Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a rosy, brown base that flashed blue-to-purple most of the time; it looked like a grayish purple when I applied it to my lid, though there was a warmer base that came through at certain angles. It was packed with glitter particles and had a slightly sandy consistency, but it was sandy in the least awful way--I could tell there was a ton of glitter in the eyeshadow, but it didn't feel gritty or chunky.

If you know me, I'm not a fan of using my fingertips for application as I can't get much precision that way, though I certainly tried these that way but found that using a flat, synthetic brush (like MAC's 242S) worked just as well as fingertips and gave me the precision I wanted to cram three of these shades on my lid. I pressed and patted the product onto my lid, which had minimal fallout during application, but when I went to blend the edgse a bit, there was a little more fallout and some sparkles traveled.

It creased faintly after six hours of wear, though it didn't progress much beyond a faint line running my deeper crease area, with light to moderate fallout; after 10 hours, there was additional fallout but it looked like about 75-80% of the glitter was on my lid as the look had plenty of sparkle and impact at the end of the day.
