No Glitter, No Glory!

Recently I received a little surprise in the mail...

The lovely ladies at Beautylish and Lit Cosmetics surprised me with a bright and sparkly package! As you may have noticed (if you're a member at Beautylish) they have just launched a boutique featuring Lit Cosmetics glitters! Lit is a company I have been wanting to try for AGES, I've heard nothing but amazing things about their glitter and especially their glitter base. I've never been able to afford to order from Lit, so getting this opportunity just made my entire year!

Inside was a cute little note from the ladies at Beautylish, 4ml size of their Clearly Liquid Glitter Base, a mini brush, their neat little glitter removal device, and a full size of Boogie Nights S2 glitter. Boogie Nights is a shade exclusive to the Beautylish Boutique!

Boogie Nights is described as:

"Boogie Nights (Shimmer Size #3) is a Medium cut multi-dimensional true purple glitter that flashes an iridescent array of golden yellow and pastel shades including lilac, pale pink, pale green, and pale blue sparkles. (4g - 0.14oz)"
(Description taken from Beautylish)

So of course, I had to test it out right away!

Here I applied Boogie Nights using the glitter base over a black eyeshadow. It made all of the different colors that reflect pop so much! 
Full list of products used in this look can be found on my Beautylish profile at:

Since the boutique opened up, I went ahead and purchased 3 more glitters from Beautylish.

L to R: Seeing Stars S3, Cayman S2, Gunsmoke S2
I think, especially side by side, you can really see the different in the glitter sizes. Cayman and Gunsmoke are obviously a lot finer than Seeing Stars. So the sizes you choose do make a difference!

In the second photo you can really see the different colors the glitters give off. Boogie Nights gives off more of greenish and orangish colors, while Seeing Stars is more multicolored. Gunsmoke is a gorgeous grey glitter, and it gives off silver and white highlights. However, it's not silver. It's darker and more of a dirty grey, which I think is crazy unique! Cayman is an amazing teal glitter. Since it's Size #2, it's finely cut, and doesn't give off that 'HEY I'M AN OBNOXIOUS COLORED GLITTER' vibe. If you fanned it out across your lid/over an eyeshadow, it could almost be passed off as a super shimmery shadow. 

All in all, I am SO IN LOVE with these glitters. I've been eyeing up all the other amazing colors at Lit Cosmetics. There are just SO many options! I want to own them all and be the glitter queen xD
