What’s Your Stance On Glitter Eyeshadow?

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

If you haven’t noticed glitter has taken over the cosmetic industry! From Colourpop to big wig brands like NARS everyone is going gaga for glitter eyeshadow.

I recently picked up Tati’s new eyeshadow palette and was not surprised at all to find out it included a few glitter eyeshadows. If I were an influencer and I was creating an eyeshadow palette I would not get involved with glitter simply because I do NOT want to be held liable for any issues that might arise when using it.

Some brands are going so far as to not even offer up a warning about glitter shades being eye safe. I contacted NARS when I purchased the Inferno Eyeshadow Palette and was told all the shades were completely eye safe. I mean, they didn’t offer to say “hey, listen be careful and use glitter glue!”

I’m not saying you can’t use glitter but you should know that using it can cause potential problems and it should be used with glitter glue to prevent it from getting into your eyes and causing a host of problems and a potential trip to the nearest eye doctor.

I do wonder if glitter cheaper to produce than a sparkly eyeshadow? I’d say yes because out of nine shades you’ll find that Colourpop will include three to four pressed glitters in a palette. I’d like to see them replace all that glitter with actual eyeshadows in the future. It’s safer, I’ll use it way more often (because really I’m not running around with glitter on my eyes in the day anymore!), and it’s easier to apply versus glitter which gets everywhere.

What are your thoughts on glitter eyeshadows?

Do they make you feel like a pretty pony or do you just wish brands would ditch them already?

Is glitter a yay or a nay for you?

5 stars out of 5

I recently purchased the MAC Star-Dipped Face Compact in Light ($42.50) which is part of the MAC Holiday 2019 Collection. I had hopes of reliving some of the joy I got from the Sweet Vision Magic Dust Powder I love so much! It didn’t quite meet that mark but it sure did come in close! There are actually two of these palettes so I am going to purchase the darker one as well.

It’s weird because this year I felt like MAC’s Holiday Collection was very tiny compared to years past. This was actually a really smart move to make because I really feel like the beauty bubble has burst and an excessively larger collection would likely end up on sale at the end of the season. What I have played with from MAC Holiday 2019 has really impressed me so far including this lovely little Star-Dipped Face Compact.
