Many women want to sparkle with their makeup, literally.
There was a time when I was younger that I loved makeup that contained glitter. Of course, there was a lot of fallout and if any got in your eye than there was potential for danger, so, it was on a rare occasion that I would actually use any glitter makeup products.
I wish that the company NYX would have been around in my teen years or that I would have known about higher end brands that have better glitter makeup products.
Now that I am almost 30, glitter makeup isn’t exactly the type of thing that I would steer towards, until now.
The popular makeup brand, NYX, has some really neat products and one of them happens to be their “Candy Glitter Liners”.
These liners are especially made for easy application around your eye area, particularly your top lash line.
Many of us women have used a liquid liner at least once in our lives, and many use them every day, so having a glitter liner that is in a gel/liquid state is really cool.
This glitter liner retails for around $4.50 online at their website, here, as well as most Ulta stores. Ulta often has sales on NYX products, so that would be the best time one or two of these liners.
The packaging looks really nice as it is a sleek clear tube with a black top that unscrews. Inside is the application brush. The only thing that is really not functional is the large black tassel hanging from the handle itself. I am not sure why they have put this here, but I can only see it getting in the way during the application process. This is easily able to be fixed, just simply cut off the tassel.
The glitter liner comes in some pretty colors. Both more neutral shades and brighter colors are offered. Choose from hues such as silver, black, pink, blue, green and many other combinations of colors.
The liner does take a bit longer to dry than your traditional liquid liners, but if you just plan accordingly, than you shouldn’t have a problem.
These colors are really nice for a night out on the town, or for younger girls who want to experiment with different types of makeup. I am sure some women could pull off wearing this every day though.
The consistency of the formula is not goopy or thick and most of the colors have great pigmentation.
You might want to consider putting on regular eyeliner first, such as in the color black, before applying the glitter liner. This will make most of the colored glitter stand out more and look even more pigmented and bright. If you wanted a more subtle look, just remember to prime your eyelid with your normal primer before applying.
This glitter liner has been compared to other high end brand’s liners, such as Urban Decay but without the higher price tag that you will find with these brands.
NYX offers cruelty free products with no animal testing which is another bonus for purchasing from this company.
If you are looking for something completely different than the traditional eye liner, than these glitter liners from NYX might be the inexpensive product for you.
