I don't think I've ever had as many snaps and tweets about a product as I did when I swatched these glitters on my Snapchat - It seems the world goes crazy for glitter! Quite frankly I'm not surprised as who doesn't love to look a glittery unicorn/ mermaid/ Princess!? These glitters do just that, and look so good on video/ in real life - unfortunately they aren't so easy to photograph as they are just so glittery - Constant reflective light is not your friend in photography! If any of you want me to swatch these again on Snapchat and video them so you can see them in their full glory, then just let me know in the comments below.
I first heard of GlitterEyes when I received their Mocha Shine loose glitter for Christmas. I fell in love with it and wrote a full review of it here. Since then GlitterEyes have released some awesome pressed glitters, updated their packaging and are continually releasing new colours to their product offering. After reading my review GlitterEyes got in touch and kindly offered to send me some of their new pressed glitters* to try out which I was really thrilled about. The selection they sent me were:
- Queen B - pure gold pressed glitter
- Mocha Shine - browny/ gold pressed glitter
- Shimmering Sand - gold and silver mixed pressed glitter
- Rainbow brights - purple (with green undertones) pressed glitter
- Genie - white holographic pressed glitter
- Glistening Azure - pale green (with blue undertones) pressed glitter
- Scarlett Spirit - red (with silver undertones) loose glitter
The loose glitters come with a gel which you use to adhere the glitter, but the pressed glitters can just be applied using a brush - I use a thick concealer brush and apply in a light pressing motion. If you wanted you could use an adhesive under the pressed glitter (like a primer for example) if you prefer a dramatic look, or if you want it to stay put for a longer period.
You will see from my pics below that quite a few of the shades look very different once swatched compared to in the pan, so if you are thinking of purchasing some of these gorgeous glitters I suggest you take a look at their Instagram page as they swatch lots of them on there, and it gives you a much better idea of the true colour.

GlitterEyes glitter creates a real Wow! factor and are fab to use for festivals, holidays, parties or if you just want to sit at home on a Friday night and look pretty. I won't judge you. I've done this before!
GlitterEyes single pressed glitters are £5.99 each. They also offer larger palettes with up to 12 pressed glitters pans, or you can buy an empty palette and make your own selection. With such a wide variety of shades you will be spoilt for choice.
Although I prefer the pressed glitter for its adhering qualities, the fab thing about the loose glitter is that it's so versatile - you can use it on your eyes, lips, cheeks, nails or for some body art.
The pressed glitters aren't suited to travelling as they are very soft and easily fall out of the pans - which I experienced with Glistening Azure, but I managed to scoop it up and press it back in. Phew! So if you're going on holiday or travelling and want to take some glitter with you I suggest you buy some of the loose glitter.
I will continue to try out these glitters as I want to use them for a festival in a couple of weeks, so be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat if you want to see the looks I create with them.
What do you guys think of this glitter?
