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 Make a Wish Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a light-medium, chartreuse green with strong, warm yellow undertones and green and silver glitter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer or if I had used it with a dampened brush. The texture was fairly soft, smooth, and not too loosely-pressed in the pan, though it obviously had a lot of glitter, which I could feel by touch. I found this shade applied particularly well with very little fallout when pressed and patted onto the lid, both with fingertips and a flat, synthetic brush. It wore well for eight hours overall, though there was a noticeable amount of fallout present (it seemed like 80-85% remained on my lid).
