Viewer Review: Three Holiday Cheers for Glitter

Thanks to Clare for the great review.

Three Holiday Cheers for Glitter!

The holidays are fantastic aren’t they? A time for cheer, good company, a valid excuse to go shopping, lots of hot chocolate with those tiny little marshmallows and more importantly, it’s the time of year a girl can wear as much glitter as she wants because the competition from holiday decorations will make her sparkle a little less. Don’t be scared of glitter, our fashionista predecessors from the 80s weren’t. Embrace it, enjoy it and always remember, the more the merrier!!!

Some of my faves this holiday season:

Make Up Forever Multi-Purpose Glitter


Comes in a dozen different shades. Great for eyes, cheeks, body or add to clear lip-glosses or nail polishes for extra sparkle.

Has anyone tried Liquid eyeshadow?


I am not the most steady handed when it comes to applying makeup so this liquid eyeshadow kind of freaks me out. Has anyone tried it, and not ended up like they were about to perform on Broadway?

Cargo Liquid Shadow Collection

This limited-edition collection of six water-based eye shadow gels contain a patented pigment that provides an extremely even application and a soft, blendable texture that stays for all day. Each gel goes on wet, and dries to a longwearing creaseproof finish.

To use: Apply lightly to the eyelids with the provided wand, and blend with the fingertips for a sheer finish or layer to achieve increased a greater intensity of pigment and shine.
