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.

Turn the Beat Around contains smaller and larger, hexagon-shaped multi-colored glitter suspended in a clear base. It had a more emollient consistency that I could push around slightly with the end of a brush in the pan itself. It had good dispersion of the glitter without it resulting in a lot of fallout. It had medium to semi-opaque coverage, but if patted over something else with a fingertip, it worked as a topper--which was how it was marketed--but the glitter definitely dominated. I tested wear below my lid, and it seemed to stay mostly intact for eight hours with light glitter migration.
This shade contains PET glitter. Please see the beginning of the post for a discussion on this ingredient!
