The liquid glitter eyeshadows.


It's been a while, but I'm hoping I'm back for good this time. I've managed to get two youtube videos up and I have one ready to edit and I have plenty off photos pre taken for posts so hopefully I'll be around a bit more. Today I thought I would talk about my favourite thing which is glitter. So without further ado lets get into it. 

Barry M glitter goals - Queen and Bling bling. 

Out of every product I'm mentioning today these have the least base pigment especially the lighter gold shade. These are a fairly chunky glitter in a clear base, Bling bling is a cool toned gold shade with a completely clear base where as Queen is a deeper copper shade. This has more pigment in the base than the gold but is still pretty sheer. These are best used as eyeshadow toppers rather than a sole shadow but are super beautiful especially for the price. 

Essence Metal shock shadows - Stars and stories and Solar explosions. 

These are so affordable and such incredible quality as with the majority of Essence products. These are the least glittery out of all the shadows I have to mention today but still beautiful. Stars and stories is a cool toned pink with a silver metallic through it. This is one of those products that I reach for when I want a pretty eye look but I can be bothered blending for hours. Solar explosions is a very light more cool toned light gold shade. This one isn't quite as metallic as the pink one so one I reach for regularly on an everyday basis. 

Barry M Glitter goals Bling bling and Queen, Essence metal shock Stars and stories and solar explosions, Stila Glitter and glow Smoky storm and Rose gold retro, NYX glitter goals Metropical, Barry M Asteroid. 
Stila Glitter and glow shadows - Smoky storm and Rose gold retro. 

These are the original liquid glitters and the ones that made me fall in love with this kind of product. I  am seriously proud of myself for only owning two of these as I would happily spend my entire student loan on them. They have more of a base shade to them than the Barry M ones and are definitely more glittery than the Essence ones. Smoky storm has a slight bit more glitter than Rose gold retro but in terms of the actual shade the rose gold one is definitely my favourite. 

NYX Glitter goals - Metropical.

These are a new release and definitely the closest I've found to the Stila ones so far. In the swatch it looks more like a simple metallic shadow however once on the eyes the glitter is much more obvious. There are a couple of brighter shades in the range however the range is no way near the Stila one. That being said if you can't get your hands on the Stila ones I'd definitely give these a go.

Barry M Holographic eyeshadow topper - Asteroid. 

This one is a little different from the rest but I wanted to mention it as they're so pretty. There is a little glitter in this however it's more focused on the duo chrome side of things. The range is mostly focused on blues and greens and I do wish they had some different shades as they look amazing on halo eyes. Out of all of the products I've mentioned today I really hope they expand this range. 

So that's it for today, I'd love to know what your favourite glitter shadows are.
