I ♥ Glitter! + GIVEAWAY!


Why is Glitter such a taboo still and almost always referred to in a negative manner? Why can only teenage girls or drag queens pull it off? It is completely out of my understanding to be honest. I personally LOVE Glitter and I think one cannot get any more feminine that this. 

Now I know it's not something you would sport on a daily basis or whilst doing a presentation in an office. But use it in moderation on the upper and lower lash line and it will immediately make your eyes sparkle! 

I have quite a few glitter products that I enjoyed using last year, but this is my absolutely favourite and one that I trust using hence here it is. 

It's by Lit Cosmetics. I have tried out their 3 Stack Lit Kit ($69.95) which comes with three stackable glitter pots, a glitter base and a few brushes. 


Beach baby is this gorgeous champagne colour. You cannot go wrong with a neutral shimmery colour now can you?


Pretty in Pink is the most adorable rosey pink glitter I've tried till date! I don't like using this as a base colour as I have a lot of space on the lids and it ends up looking like I have a swollen eye. I like to use this as a pop of colour by using it as a liner. Basically use pink glitter in moderation unless you have hooded eyes. 


Twisted sistah is a gorgeous cadbury purple. This one is a must-have! It is a stunner and you can actually get away wearing this on the entire eye area. 


I have no idea how I would have used this glitter if it would not have been for the Glitter Base. Basically this is used to foil the glitter pigment and then apply it to the lids. It works as a glue/primer and makes sure there is no fall off and the glitter stays on all day. 

Below are how the colours look. Twisted Sistah, Beach Baby and Pretty in Pink



They give MAC Pigments a run for their money in my opinion as they are seriously much more striking as compared to them. They look dramatic and have this 3-d feel to them. 

Having said that, the glitter itself is very small in size and finely milled. You can actually see every glitter particle separate from one another. It has no fall off what so ever and surprisingly comes off in a single swipe of a wet wipe!

Because the glitter base glues the glitter pigments to the eye lids, you will feel a slight tightness on the eyelids for a little while, however the feeling disappears soon. 

Below I used two of my favourite glitters from Lit Cosmetics. This is how I would like to wear them for a photo shoot or editorial work.. I would tone it down slightly otherwise. This is just to show you how it looks full on. 



Tips to wear glitter:

- Don't overdo it, keep it simple - mono-coloured lids rock!
- Wear it as a liner on the lower or the upper lash line
- Add tonnes of carbon black mascara to avoid alien eyes
- Reserve the look for night outs, parties, photo shoots etc
- Do your eyes first and then your foundation
