Do you like using loose eyeshadows, pigments and glitters?

This is the most tricky question ever, especially for me. Of course, I love pigments and glitters – these are so sparkly and beautiful! But there are so many NOs as for using them as eyeshadows. More often than not I question myself right after I pick up a glitter or a pigment with a brush and little sparkly particles start flying everywhere around me. So messy!

There is barely anything more beautiful than a rich pigment or a sparkly glitter in a bottle, makeup-wise of course. It is so shiny and glittery and reflective. It is a pleasure to look at and to spin the bottle right under the direct lighting. Whoa!

If only it was as easy to apply and wear! I have quite a few MAC and KIKO pigments as well as NYX and Make Up For Ever glitters but I so rarely ever use any of these, unfortunately. Even if applied properly glitters always tend to flake and migrate all over the face and end up in expected places. Pigments are a bit better for that matter but still have quite a significant fall-out even if used wet or with special oils and fixing solutions (like KIKO pigments are intended to be used). I really like how pigments and glitters look on the eyes, but it is such pity that this beauty has a very limited wear time.

Do you like using pigments, glitters or loose eyeshadows in your makeup? What is more preferable? What solutions do you use to prolong the wear time and to adhere the products better? How do you escape the fall out? Share you thoughts and ideas in the comments down below!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

  1. I used to be REALLY into loose mineral eye shadows since they had such interesting duochrome shades. But I’ve learned over the years that I hardly ever use them due to the hassle and mess! Also, I find that they can get muddy looking so easily when blending – they never look as beautiful when applied to the lids versus swatching. Too bad!
