    These glitters are incredible. I bought one of each for dance and fire performances. The pigmentation is excellent! I consider these to be JUST AS GOOD as M.A.C. glitters at a fraction of the price.

    To get the glitter to stay on, use a mixture of gum arabic, glycerin and water (find it in the watercolour section of your art supply store). Although naturally-occuring and used traditionally as a thickener for lotions, shampoos, etc., test on you inner arm for any skin sensitivity before using on your face.

    2 drops gum arabic/glycerin to one drop water will provide more than enough coverage for both eyelids. Wet your brush with the solution, dip into a separate container of glitter, and dab on lids. Once dry, this lasted ALL night (dancing, clubbing, partying, etc.) for me!

    Remove with eye makeup remover on a cotton pad.

      Comments about bhcosmetics Glitter Collection:

      One of my all-time fav things to do in my makeup artistry biz is to do kids' parties, do charity events, make a few kids smiile at hospitals (where allowed!), I often auction my services at a childrens' party/event for different charities...because after you work with one too many divas it's SO nice to work with kids, and for a good cause is an extra bonus!

      Naturally, for years I've used the Most well-known high priced brand of glitters on adults and children. There simply was not a lot of quality choice available, beyond theatre/stage specific types. Those are a royal pain in the rear to work with on a child for several reasons, and afterall the experience is supposed to be fast and fun and theatre glitters/glitter paints, etc? Fun is not a good word and pro-fast is a joke, even with an adult! Now, that certain Brand M....All good, nothing to complain about there, beyond the obvious, which to me is a huge negative...price plus no pro discounts! When you're involved in some of the types of makeups I do on top of donating time and product for kids and charities, well...it got to the point where I felt like I might as well just set a hundred dollar bill on fire at least once a month!

      Then my dear friend and colleague found the BHC glitters and he oh so generously ordered me the entire set along with his own. I can only say that we were both totally BLOWN AWAY by the quality of these products! This is the real deal, not some cheap choppy copy. It works, it looks fantastic, and you will never EVER pay $20+ for a pot of glitter again!

      Having said that, please understand that I've been doing this for over 20 years now...if you aren't practiced in the use of glitters, it may seem a little intimidating, and you'll make mistakes...that's OKAY, because the best way to learn is from one's own mistakes! I still keep teaching myself new things on a regular basis...which is to say, I make my share of mistakes too!

      So my dear pal and I sat down to experiment, to put these new glitters through ALL the paces on ea other, and see what we could learn. We played around (had a fantastic time...laughed ourselves silly more than once!), working with each color to test quality yes, but also figuring out what works for each of us as to application.

      For instance his major work is catwalk and print...quick on quick off. Me, I need the stuff to do that and more in my regular work as well, but I also need it to stick to a little guy or gal throughout a party where they're bound to get sweaty, messy, smeared, you know...just being kids! :)

      Consequently, my friend swears by a dab of primer over foundation but w/out setting powder in the specific area (you really can't apply primer over powder anyway!) and after application, maybe a little fixative spray dabbed on with the appropriate brush when the area near eyes is involved for control and safety. The formulation of primer used is all dependent on skin type and condition, but we had a little more trouble with types that have oils in them. I tend to agree with him for quick on/off, photo shoots and the like, but I encourage you to experiment yourselves like we did before you really USE it. For any client, including yourself, figure out your strategies and placements etc before you have a face prepped and waiting for the real deal.

      Now putting glitter on a kid is one whole other ballgame. NOwhere near eyes! Obvious reasons! Mid-cheek is about the height limit for me on the face for relatively safe placement on kids say 6'ish yrs and up so far as I'm concerned. Infants? I just won't do it ever, no matter how much Mom pleads. (and they do, bless their hearts, they do!) Toddlers...forearms seem to work pretty well if the design is to include a LITTLE glitter. All kid glitter should be as little as possible! It's not worth the risk to go diva with a child...a few shimmery bits on the end of a rainbow and they're pleased as punch! For fixative I use good old-fashioned thinly applied eyelash glue, any good brand that's white, dries fast and clear and takes very little to go a long long way...that's after I make sure that the munchkin has no skin sensitivities or allergies. Understand folks that there are safety and legal concerns...do NOT do a kid's paint party without specifics of the process, duration and all applicable warnings via a written/signed waiver/contract with the host/hostess before the first balloon goes on the helium tank!

      In 20+ yrs I've NEVER had an issue, for good reasons...first, I only use the best pro quality products on EVERYbody, combined with how very careful I am about placement vs age and disposition of child, then sticking around to do touch ups, clean ups, choose your "disaster" repairs. MOST important is that contract/waiver.

      Enough advice there, I'm sure you all get the picture! If I can't use the glue for some reason or other, I gotta brand name drop here but it's the truth...I've never had a kid break out from thinned down good old elmer's glue!

      These glitters, every one of them, is top notch, they work like a high priced dream, and I can't say enough about such high quality at such an insanely affordable price! Get a couple and play!!! You'll be collecting them all in no time, and since a little goes a long way, you won't be running out very quickly...unless of course you do a lot of kids' parties! LOL!!!

      Happy Makeups & Glittering To All!!!

      I love these glitters. They can be used for everyday use as well as special occasions. They also work well on younger children. They can be tricky to apply. I found using eye lash glue work great to keep it on. I've also used eye primer and lip gloss to apply the glitter.

          I love these glitters because they are affordable and very pigmented. I love the beautiful sparkle it gives to my eyes. My only problem with these is that I can't use them as a highlighter because it is too thick to apply on my face. I found out that the best way to apply these is with clear lip gloss. but overall, I LOVE THEM!
