Melt Cosmetics As If Crushed Glitter Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a black-tinted, sheerer base with flecks of holographic sparkle and glitter pieces. There also seemed to be very fine black shimmer/pearl that looked speckled in the close-up, though I think from a normal viewing distance it just looked like it darkened my natural lip color, added moderate shine, and then some random sparkle that barely caught the light--definitely not a "burst" of it at all.
Despite having a smooth consistency in its base, I could easily feel the shimmer and, at times, the larger particle glitter that felt almost jagged. I'm not particularly sensitive to feeling the texture of glitter in a gloss either. It was difficult to evenly disperse the glitter/sparkle during application. It wore well for two hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
