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?
