MBA Cosmetics Pressed Glitters

I love me some shimmer and glitter, but what can put me off with glitter is just how messy it can get. I have tried glitter creams in the past. Application is less messy but I found that I had problems with creasing throughout wear which is not pretty! I put my bad experiences aside and took a chance on the MBA Cosmetics Pressed Glitters. Instead of being in a cream base, the glitter is pressed with binders which does give them a creamy feel. Similar in texture to ColourPop eye shadows if you are familiar with them.






There are so many shades to choose from, but I wanted to limit my order just in case I was not a fan. You can choose to buy the pressed glitters in a compact or like I did where the pans come in a cardboard case so you can place them in a palette.




Look at all that sparkly goodness!

I was certainly hoping for a better outcome than I got with the MBA Cosmetics Metallic Matte Lipsticks. If you didn't read my review on those, I was not a fan at all! 

Verdict?  They are very pigmented.  I apply with a finger and the pressed glitter goes on smoothly. They doesn't feel gritty and transfers onto the lid well. I haven't tried with a brush because I ain't going to try and get glitter out of a makeup brush, lol. These pressed glitters are fantastic! They lasted all day and I had zero creasing. I'm impressed and I need to add more to my collection!

Now onto the looks I created using these glitters



Limoncello





Iced Orchid





Champagne Toast



Candied Apple

I love how versatile these glitters are. Removal isn't the easiest, but the little extra effort it takes is worth it for that pop of glitter! :)
