Glitter, glitter, glitter. I love glitter. I don't know how any of you feel about glitter, but I love it. I'm pretty okay with glitter eyeshadows, never like the amount of fall out I can get when I don't use the appropriate primer/primer-type products. I don't use plain loose cosmetic glitters often, but I use them for special occasion-type looks.

As I said already, I freaking love glitter. It's fun. I used Kandee Johnson's tutorial for a glittery New Years look in 2011, for one of Ze Boyfriend's birthday dinners. She did a gold look for her tutorial, which I decided to do too. I liked it, thought it was pretty. I think she used Eye Kandy's glitter adhesive for eyes? Anyway, I went looking for a glitter to use and found NYX's Glitter Mania glitters that came in 10 different shades. Paired with a gold eyeshadow and NYX's gold Jumbo Pencil, I had the perfect look for his birthday. I later did the same look with pink glitter for Valentine's Day one year.

These come in tiny vials with black screw tops and a small opening at the neck. A silver sticker has the color, barcode, and the usual generic stuff that NYX has on their labels. The problem with the packaging is here though: the sticker keeps the vial sealed but also has the name on it, which would get lost when the sticker was removed! AUGH. WHY! I peeled the sticker off all the way, snipped off the piece with the name and stuck it back on. That was still such an annoyance.

UPDATE: My giant freaking a-hole brother poured my Glitter Mania down the drain of my bathroom sink. He's 20-something, can't keep his hands to himself and doesn't know what self-control is!
