I’m not sure if it’s just me. But glitter has a special place in my heart. From the cheap plastic case I used to cart around with me that contained my most prised collection of glitter. I would gouge them out with y fingers and smear them liberally across my face. Today, I am slightly more restrained in application, but the love I have for the sparkly stuff is still there.
I recently posted about the brand Prima and their collection of pressed glitters. Well, they’ve launched a few more and kindly asked if I would like to try them. Obviously I said yes! They sent me 4 pressed glitters – 3 of which are new to me.
Unlike the glitters from my childhood, these are fragrance free. There is literally no smell to the what so ever. I don’t know how they’ve done it. Prima pressed glitters are cruelty free, great if you prefer brand that are animal friendly. The first ingredient is Aloe vera, a natural skin soother and as they already contain adhesive you don’t need any of your own. Personally, anything I put on my eye that doesn’t have a hardcore primer will crease immediately. But I used a primer with every eye product regardless of whether they say they need one or not. That’s up to you.
I have experimented with these and my personal favourite way to use them is on a cut crease and on top or in place of liquid liner. They sparkle beautifully and I have had loads of compliments when I were them. The thing with pressed compared to loose glitter is – it’s much much easier to work with. It stays put for the same amount of wear time and you can pop them in a magnetic palette to reach for whenever you want.
When you first touch these, they feel like nothing else. They have a gel like consistency, which you have to use quite a firm hand with to get a good amount of glitter out. Use the edge of the pan to get rid of any excess and using either your fingers or a firm short brush tap them onto the lid until you’ve reached your desired level of sparkliness.
With the pans priced at just £3.50 – available here, it’s worth trying at least one. If nothing else, it might satisfy your inner child.
