Eye Kandy Glitter Review!

Hey Beauts,

So it is that time of year again, and IMATS tickets for London 2015 have been released! Whilst I won't be attending this year, I had the honour of going last year with a close friend who is a make-up artist and had a brilliant time. One thing I just had to pick up when I saw the display was some Eye Kandy glitters. I think I speak for everyone when I say Glitter is stunning and us girls are drawn to glitter like a dog is to a bone. 

Spearmint - Sizzlin' Cinnamon - Candy Coin - Double Bubble - Confetti - Marshmallow
Double Bubble & Candy Coin - Spearmint & Sizzlin' Cinnamon

The kit included 6 glitters of my choosing, a brush and some liquid sugar. It was a long time ago now, but I think it cost £30 which is a fantastic price for what I got. Full price on the Eye Kandy website it is £30 for the same set but it only includes 3 glitters and not of your choice, singular glitters being £6.50 each. So I would definatly say it is worth picking this up at IMATS if they are there again this year with similar deals. I have to start off by saying these are fantastic. I don't wear them that often - maybe on the odd night out - but when I do, they are stunning. It takes a little bit of getting used to, figuring our how much liquid sugar to use with how much glitter, but once you have that sussed you are ready to go!  I find it applies really well and you can customise the glitter mixtures to make them as opaque as you want. If you really want to, you can even mix colours (as pictured above) to custom create your own shades. I really like combining Double Bubble and Candy Coin for a beautiful rose gold shade that really is stunning on the eyes.

However, as with any glitter you do want some great packaging to really make sure the glitter doesn't get everywhere. Well, this packaging isn't that great and I have already had my fair share of spillages to deal with. I find working with these over the sink works well as you can just wash away any messes you create really easily. Just make sure you screw the lids on tight when you have finished.

As you can tell I really do love these (Who doesn't love glitter?!) and they come in some really stunning shades. I highly suggest checking them out, even if it's just to look at some pretty glitters! Have you ever tried them out before? If so, what do you think of them? I love creating looks just for the fun of it even if I'm not going out the house at all. Would you be interested in seeing them if I posted them in other blog posts? Let me know below, I love reading your comments and thoughts on these products! If you aren't already, remember to follow on GFC and BlogLovin' so you don't miss out on future posts.

  5. Pretty colors :)

  6. Love the gold one! Do you get any fallout on your face after using them?

    1. Not at all! When you mix in the liquid sugar it turns the glitter into a liquid paste, pretty much like an easy to use liquid/gel eye liner :)

  7. Oooh, that sounds awesome! I've always been fascinated by this kind of makeup! Perhaps I should buy it soon <3
