I definitely love it as eyeliner or on top of a pencil eyeliner! The other way I like it is on lips, but I prefer more micro-glitter to sparkle in size.

I like to line my eyes with a glittery or metallic liquid eyeliner. Then, because that doesn’t give much definition, I like to either tightline as usual with gel or pencil or go in with black liquid liner in a super thin line near my lashes. It’s subtle but gives some pop!

I love using the glitter shade on tom ford’s she wolf pallet as a base close to my eyelash line and applying the matte gray over it. It just looks so polished and fun.

I prefer to use glitter in eyeliner or maybe a glitter pigment if I’m going for an out there eye look. However, I can’t STAND glitter in my lip products unless it’s really finely milled.

I love using Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombre in Fantasme…basically anywhere. Cheekbones, collarbones, browbones, eyelids, patted onto lipstick…it gives a wash of translicent/white/silver glitter that never looks overdone! I also find that it stays put, and doesn’t get everywhere!.

It’s not exactly glitter, but I love anything which I can use for all over glow and sparkle. Other than that I use it in eyeshadow ( like some of the UD ones) and I own a couple of sparkly glosses.

Honestly my FAVORITE way is as a highlight on the cheeks or body (or both!) I love the way MAC’s Reflects glitters look under bright lights when you place them on the cheekbones! SO pretty like a spaceship! 🙂

First of all, it absolutely *must* be micro-glitter, for any product. I can’t stand “chunkier” glitter, even in mail polish. Second, I will pick one feature on my face to add sparkle; if I choose eyes, then lips are kept neutral & no gloss, and if I do a glittery lip, eyes are matte & “natural”. Finally, I don’t use it on my face, lest I feel like I just stepped out of Claire’s Boutique…

Leave it to glitter to delurk me. lol

I love it in any form! On my eyes, my cheeks, my lips, my nails… my clothes… my makeup bag… It’s a terrible addiction. 8(
But I think I like it on my cheeks best!

If I rolled up in a ball and had someone to push me I could basically be a traveling disco ball. I’d be a hit at block parties.

OMG! “If I rolled up in a ball and had someone to push me I could basically be a traveling disco ball. I’d be a hit at block parties.”

Funniest thing I’ve read all day 😀

Happy de-lurking!!

As a contrast on the lower, inner portion of my lashline. For example, recently I’ve done a purple and silver smokey-esque eye and on the lower lashline it’s been warm browns and then a gold glitter liner in the inner corner

Oh, man — over the lid, for sure. One of the main reasons why I love Clarins quads so much is that they always have a gorgeous, transparent, shatter-y sort of glitter in them. There’s just something about the finish that I can’t get enough of!

Liquid glitter liner, my drug! Besides NYX, I have yet to find a decent glitter liner. Well, at least in Germany. I guess there is not a demand for glitter here 🙁
