  • So very shiny

    posted by frills on 10/19/2008

    Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    The glitter is very bright and colorful.

    Cheap compared to the same stuff sold by cosmetics companies.

    These make a nice gift for those into glitter makeup.

    Clings very well (found that out the hard way).

    Available as both coarse and fine particles, the coarse ones being shaped like tiny sticks.

    Cons:

    One container popped open in transit. Not all of the contents could be recovered and poured back into the container.

    They're all stuffed together into the same ziplock bag. If more than one container pops open in transit, the colors will be irrecoverably mixed.

    You don't know which six you will receive, and there are many colors as well as both coarse and fine varieties.

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought these as a gift for someone who really likes glitter after hearing that cosmetic companies usually charge upwards of $30 for a similar quantity.

    I'm told the coarse "stick" glitter is best for decorating nails while the fine glitter is more general purpose.

    They could really use better packaging to prevent containers from popping open and spilling all over the bag.

    Bottomline:

    Bit of a gamble both in the variety you receive and their survivability in transit, but apparently a good value.
