Here I have some really awesome, really beautiful pressed glitters. If you're on Instagram or are in any way affiliated with the makeup community you've probably seen the talk of pressed glitters. There are some really well known ones but the ones I'm going to talk about are less expensive and really great.
It seems like pressed glitters are over $10 usually, but I've found some that are well below that. I tried actually to get some pressed glitters from a pretty well known company. $50 and a few emails later.... no package. Luckily, I have pay after delivery so no harm no foul, but it did leave a bad taste in my mouth. Thus, I went to some smaller companies that always seem to have better customer service.
The first set that I'm gonna talk to you about are from Fairy Vibez on Etsy. These pressed glitters were only $4. You read that correctly. Right now, you can choose a palette of 6 or 12 for 30% off which makes it even cheaper. Now pressed glitters are something that still need a base in my opinion. A base of glitter glue. These are not like waxy glitters that wet n wild used to serve up these are legit pressed glitter in a pan, that is best applied over a glitter glue with your finger. It's gonna give you a very opaque glitter finish. Not sparse glitter here and there. Solid glitter.
So above is some swatches from Fairy Vibez:
Dragon Scale has some bigger cuts of glitter in it which is awesome. Teaven is a gorgeous green that I love and Terra Kota is absolute fire. I recommend these pressed glitters above any others that I've tried so far. If you want to know what bases I use, it's NYX Glitter Glue and Too Faced Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue. Right now I mainly just use NYX,
These 3 shades are from MBA Cosmetics. They were $6 a piece also on Etsy.

Amethyst Moon (my fave)
Amethyst Moon looks like a Unicorn freaking threw up in a pan and gift wrapped it. I love that color. Speaking of pans, you will need a palette to put these in as all of them are pan only. So grab a coastal scents empty palette, an ABH palette if you have one handy, a Z Palette, whatever, just make sure you have a palette to put these in. I don't like to mix mine with eye shadows either. One wrong move and it could be lights out for the shadows that you have in there that are now a hybrid of glitter and pigment. They aren't super messy I'm just super protective.
So there you go. I'll leave the links for MBA and Fairy Vibez. I hope you check them out just remember get some glitter glue. You will get some fall out naturally. Not much though, not nearly as much as you would with loose glitter.
