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 P for Pink Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and multi-colored pearl and silver glitter. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a touch more patted on top or fully opaque when used with a dampened brush in the first place. This shade shifted a bit less, but it seemed to have more multi-colored sparkles/reflects and flashed pink and gold and silver to my eye. The consistency was fairly smooth, though packed with fine glitter, and blended out along the edges without having tons of fallout, but there were some particles that spread beyond (like into my crease) even when I was trying to be careful.
It started to crease faintly after six hours, but it did not seem to get much worse over time, and there was slight fallout present at six hours and more after eight hours. The eyeshadow still had a lot of sparkle and shine present on my lid/inner tearduct after eight hours, though.
