NYX Eye Glitter Review
Best Quality Loose Glitter for Makeup
Silver Glitter Eye Makeup


Highlight, Shine, Glow, Glitter- excites every makeup lover. I am no different. Though I might not use every single makeup product I own, I love to buy and keep it handy. (Strange, but that’s me)  I have fancied those glitter stuck eyes and flirtatious lashes. But never attempted it on myself. In my last haul from NYX, I jumped into the bandwagon and got myself a powder glitter without knowing how to use it. The NYX Face and Body Glitter can be used on both face and body, excited?

My Opinion on NYX Face & Body Glitter


Looking at those dainty glitter bottles sure excites me. I have desire of mastering the art of glitter makeup. When I spotted these loose glitters under the brand name of NYX Professional, I had to try one if not more. I know I m not an expert in terms of eye makeup, but there is always a first time. By the time I m writing this post, I feel like wearing it again.
This 2.5 gm bottle might sound tiny, but will last me a lifetime. The glitter is locked inside a spice shaker kinda dispenser with three holes. Since the holes are marked for easy use, the glitter can be extracted in small quantities and not wasted due to spillage. Thankfully these are not like the Mac pigments which can be directly used on twisting the cap loose.
So these glitter bottles are available in 12 freaky shades. I chose a color which could go with every eye shadow color and compliment them all. This shade is called "Crystal" and is universally flattering. The glitter is primarily silver with hints of rainbow colors which reflect in light. The sight is amazing. This range is perfect for parties, to experiment and boost your confidence manifold. This shade looks best when used over a black shadow.

How to apply?

If you know about the wonder in a bottle, the Inglot Duraline. You will know what I m talking about. I take out the required amount of glitter in a tiny tin pan which I  got with the Makeup Revolution foiled eye shadow. After the eye shadow application is complete. I dab very little duraline on the areas where I want to apply glitter. I use my clean index finger to do this. Next using the ring finger, very lightly dab the glitter on the duraline applied area and press slowly. Make sure you apply decent amount of glitter to avoid gap and drop outs.

Alternatively, you can use the NYX Glitter Primer. I have used that in the pictures here. It is nothing short of magic. Its so easy to apply glitter with it. It is sticky consistency and applies smooth on the eye lids. Next I use a Audrey’s flat pan brush to apply glitter over the primer. 2nd layer of glitter can be applied immediately for better shine and coverage. The NYX Glitter Primer instantly sticks the glitter on the skin.
If you use the NYX Glitter Primer, the glitter will stick to the eyes for good 6-7 hours without fading.
