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 Major Win Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium pink base with warm undertones and lighter pink and silver glitter. It looked a bit lighter and icier most of the time after I had applied it to my lid. The texture was as smooth as I'd expect given how much glitter was in it, and the glitter felt softer, less gritty. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (best applied with a dampened brush over a glitter adhesive for maximum coverage in a single layer) that adhered well by pressing and patting into place with minimal blending along the edges. I was able to use a flat, synthetic brush with the formula, though fingertips worked well for larger areas.
There was slight fallout during application, and then there was some more throughout wear, though a lot of it seemed to stay directly underneath my area and did not venture much beyond that area. There was still a significant amount of glitter still present on my lid after eight hours--at a glance, I thought it all remained as it was still quite sparkly, but there was definite fallout over time.
