Hello again beauty lovers! If you were anything like me growing up, you had an unhealthy (but completely warranted) obsession with glitter! My friends used to make it a contest to try and point out when I wore an outfit without any glitter or rhinestones. No one ever won. My love of bedazzled clothing eventually faded, but now being into makeup, I can feel like a middle schooler again and bathe my face in shimmery goodness! Beauty People has picked up on the advent of pressed glitters with their Fix Pearl Pigment Pacts. They come in 10 colors and promise impactful and blendable shimmer without the typical glittery mess. I’ll be testing and swatching the shades Sugar Light and Romantic Light.
Each glitter comes in a black screw top container with a clear window in the top. The containers are simple but sturdy and functional. The black and white patterned boxes the compact comes in are cute! The clear compact top allows you to easily differentiate colors. Yay for multiples! The boxes also have color representation on them. When the packages arrived, they had a plastic topper inside to hold the glitter in place. The packaging is mostly in Korean, but there is an English ingredients list on the side of the box.
These glitters have such an intriguing texture! In the container, they almost look like metallic leaf! Because of this texture, they aren’t mess free for me though. Each time I’ve applied some glitter falls off of my finger or brush before reaching my eye. The leaf like flakes remain separate until packed down or spread. I pick them up gently to avoid changing the texture in the pan and to use less product. You can avoid the pieces falling if you pack the product onto your finger before applying, but you’ll waste more that way. It’s not a big deal for me; just be mindful where and how you apply these. One of the chairs in my house now has a glitter patch from a few pieces that fell!
Both colors look much lighter on the skin than they do in the container. Romantic Light is a yellowy bronze. Sugar Light is a bright silvery white. Their shine power is better than I expected. They have the appearance of a cosmetics glitter just a finer cut. I also think these are a good value! Most places seem to sell them for less than $8 each and you get 1.8 grams with no need to purchase a separate primer or glue. You can cover your whole eye with a few “flakes” so I can’t imagine running out of it soon.
I wouldn’t say these glitters apply with no fallout, but they aren’t bad. Again, I love that the pressed format doesn’t need a glue or mixing medium! Applying with your fingers is easiest; you can use different tools to get different effects though. If you apply with your finger, you get a decent more subtle coverage of glitter. You can then blend this out to get a lovely dispersed effect. I noticed that Romantic Light spreads better in this regard than Sugar Light. If you don’t mind a little extra mess and effort, you can pack the glitter on with a detail brush and get a full on metallic leaf effect!
The wear of these glitters is stunning. You can wear them alone or over an eyeshadow base. They didn’t settle or crease throughout the day. They were also easy to remove with an oil based cleanser! Here are some eye pics of both colors.
I adore these glitter pigments! Though still potentially messy, they are beautifully pigmented and so versatile. I plan on getting a few more colors when I can. I’m also hoping they expand their color range. The ones Beauty People currently makes are all neutrals and I’d love to have a few in fashion colors.
