Hello!I know what’s glitter as I’m fond of nail art and usually use glitter and different sparkling things for my nails. But this was the first time when I saw the Face & Body Glitter by NYX Professional Makeup. And once I had a look at it, I couldn’t walk away without purchasing, as I couldn’t resist the temptation to experiment with it.
Glam things up a notch and shine like the star you are with our sparkling new Face & Body Glitter, available in 12 light-catching shades ranging from ruby red and multi-colored purple to bronzy brown and yellow gold. Pair with our GLITTER PRIMER for a sparkle-perfect look.
Where to purchase: at a store or on the official nyxcosmetics.com website
The glitter is packed into the same looking packaging as the pigments by the brand. It’s a small jar that houses 2.5gr of the product.
It has a screw on top cap with a protecting film inside to prevent spillage.
I took the film off and now the product is easy to get in the top cap, so I wouldn’t advise you to shake or turn the jar upside down if there’s no need to do so.
On the nyxcosmetics.com I counted 12 different shades of Face & Body Glitter. The number and name of the color are given at the bottom of the jar, where they also placed the list with ingredients.
My color is GLI01 Blue/Bleu - true blue color as I see.
Texture-wise the product is of fine grain and when I touch it and apply it on the skin it’s almost undetectable.
It shines very beautifully.
How to use?
✿ Use the glitter as eyeshadows or apply it over some other eyeshadows.
✿ Add some zest to your lip makeup. Apply it over a lip gloss.
The only drawback of wearing this “mixture” on your lips is that you’ll have to be very careful while eating. Or it’ll be better to turn down having a meal at all if you’re wearing the glitter, as you risk to eating it. By the way, on the lips the staying power of the glitter will be just the same as the staying power of the lipstick you’re wearing.
✿ Use some glitter with your nail polish. Honestly I haven’t tried to do it yet, as I don’t want to waste such an expensive product for my nails, as I can buy a special nail product for less money.
✿ Or apply some glitter on your body…
All in all I liked the Face & Body Glitter by NYX Professional Makeup but still the price is too hefty for such a small jar, even though I know that the product is top notch quality-wise.
What’s more is this isn’t a product you’ll use everyday. I’ll hardly ever use it, or maybe I won’t ever use it again.
It’s totally up to you to decide whether you need this glitter or not.
