Urban Decay Distortion Heavy Metal Glitter Gel ($22.00 for 0.49 fl. oz.) includes a mix of larger, hexagon-shaped glitter and much smaller, more micro-glitter (in size) with both having an iridescent effect and shifting from a bright, greenish-gold to variations of lavender to deeper pink. This shade had real sparkle and shift when worn on the lid or cheeks, so it did read true-to-swatch and didn't feel like I was having to find the right angle to see the whole point of wearing glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which could be built up to some degree, but I would never describe it as high-coverage.
This was one of the shades I tested on my eyes for a full eight-hour period (others, I couldn't make it that far), and I did have two pieces of glitter drop below my lash line over time. I think the formula yields impressive longevity, but it is not 100% perfect, and my experience has been that if one of the larger hexagonal shaped glitters gets into my eye or close enough to my lash line, it's a recipe for instant, watery eyes and moderate irritation.
