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 Put U on Gold Shiny Pretty Shadow ($21.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with soft, warm undertones and a glittering, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque whether applied with fingertips, dry brushes, or a wet brush, though a wet brush intensified the shine of the underlying pigment so it had a brighter, shinier finish as a result.
The texture was smoother than you'd expect given how glittery it was, and it had a light creaminess to it that helped the glitter bind with the underlying powder and have impressive adhesion to bare skin. I'd still use it with an adhesive spray or base for even better hold, as there was still light fallout over the eight and a half hours it lasted for.
