I’ve been in love with glitter since childhood. We didn’t call it glitter, though, we used to call it “sparkles” and we didn't buy it but scratched it from Christmas cards. Smile

FACE & BODY GLITTER is housed in a small transparent plastic jar with a spice shaker kind of dispenser with holes to prevent spillage.

Price: $6.50


The glitter sits on the inside of the top cap where you can take it with brush or applicator and apply.


Glam things up a notch and shine like the star you are with NYX Professional Makeup's sparkling Face and Body Glitter in a variety of light-catching shades. With a rainbow of dazzling colors to choose from, you'll never get tired of adding a little shine.


I have my glitter in the color 01 BLUE!

It’s a bright and intense blue color with a metallic sheen.



Use over NYX Professional Makeup's Glitter Primer for a touch of glam. Mix into lip gloss or body lotion for an extra dazzle.

Let’s start to experiment :)1. At first I wanted to apply the glitter WITHOUT a primer just on my bare eyelid. Smile

And you know, the glitter was unruly, it was impossible to keep the edges and the layer was too thin. Everything was shining: me, my husband, even our cat that wasn’t even sitting near me but wandered about somewhere else. Smile

It was also difficult to remove the dropped off glitter from my face. The best way to do it is to wash your face totally!

2. It was way easier to control the process of application of glitter over a PRIMER. The glitter was only on the brush and nowhere else. I won’t speak about the staying power of the glitter as I think that it fully depends on the primer you’re wearing. Mine stayed on for about 3 hours and then started to fall off.

The product is felt rather comfortable on my eyes, though I still felt its presence. Smile


If you have hooded eyes like me, then you need to be very careful as the glitter imprints on the upper lids and you can see it in the third photo. Even though I applied it only on my mobile lid - as in the first and seconds photos.

In general, I can say that I liked this glitter as the small parts don’t cling together or make clumps. If you have any problems with its staying power, then I’ll repeat it again - it totally depends on the primer you use before the glitter application.


I don’t know if you find this information useful, though I want to mention the following:

At first I didn’t see any difference between the glitter and pigment. I used to think that they are both shimmery, plus have the same-looking plastic jars.

1. Glitter has bigger particles, while pigment has such a small grain that it looks like metallic dust.

2. The pigments are okay to wear without a primer and stay put on the skin with no fall out, while glitter drops off and doesn’t work alone. It requires a “friend”. Smile

3. Pigment can’t be applied on the lips, there’s even a special sign on the jar, while glitter doesn’t have it.

4. Pigment is almost weightless that I don’t feel it present on my skin.


Well, I guess that’s it. Smile

Thanks for your attention.
