Festival season is in full swing at the moment and I must admit I am a little jealous of everyone that has been this year. As someone that has never been to a festival, I always get a little bit of envy when I see how amazing they usually are. I have always wanted to go to one, but the idea of camping just really doesn’t do it for me.
I have absolutely loved all of the glitter and jewel festival makeup looks that I have seen around this year. When I spotted the Glitter Brilliants range at my local Boots NYX counter, I thought I would sparkle my eyes, turn the volume up and pretend I’m at a festival myself.
As you probably know already, I blooming love glitter. I would cover myself in the stuff all day, every day if I could. It is just so magical. The shade Crystal is right up my street as it has a holographic tone to it, perfect for those days when I want to feel even more sparkly than I normally like to.
Crystal is a mixture of silver holo pieces, all the same size and super, duper sparkly. In the above photo, I just tapped the pot lightly on my hand, the glitter did seem to stay for a little while but obviously it had nothing to stick to, so just fell off eventually. As I didn’t invest in any product to actually keep the glitter on, I thought I would use my trusty Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer and hope for the best.
The Primer didn’t work too badly actually, it kept the bulk of the glitter in place for a little while, much better than it would have been if I had put it straight on. As I am super clumsy I managed to get it everywhere anyway, when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere, it was all down my top and everything aha. I think the fallout would have been slightly better if I had used a proper glitter primer first though.
I must admit, I felt like I had the twinkliest unicorn eyes whilst wearing this. In some lights it is silver, in some it is rainbow. I love it. My only downfall, was that I managed to get glitter in my eyes quite a lot throughout the day with the fallout. Totally worth it though. As this is face and body glitter, I definitely want to try this on my lips next time and who knows, I might even experiment on my cheeks to get the full on festival effect.
Have you tried this glitter at all? Tell me your festival stories too, I hope you all had a lovely time if you have been this year! ♥
