EOTD: MBA Cosmetics Pink Glitter...

If there's one thing I love, it's glittery eye looks - it's also something I find a considerable challenge to create (along with eyeliner on my top lid!). All that fiddling with glue and cleaning up fallout means it's reserved for special occasions only, so here's the look I put together for New Year's Eve 2015...


Turned out reasonably ok, although as most bloggers are painfully aware, it's exceptionally difficult to capture the mesmerising sparkle of glitter with the average camera. Still you can get an idea of how pretty it was in the both-eye pics below. I used MBA Cosmetics Pressed Glitter palette in the shade combo Fruit Punch. Gorgeous, GORGEOUS pinks and purples! 


I find this palette easier to work with than loose pots as the sparkles are compacted, and there's no risk of glitter flying around the room if I sneeze (it's happened before lol!). All the pans lift out and are interchangeable with any of the other palettes...


For my base I used MBA Cosmetics Glitz Fix, a special adhesive created specifically for the eyes, non-irritating, and holds the glitter particles in place for (in my experience) up to 6 hours. I started with the palest pink on the inner corner, then went for the magenta in the middle, and finished with the purple on the outside...

I blended pink from the Chi Chi OMFG palette over my eyeliner along the lower lashline, and lined my waterline with Eye of Horus Cosmetics Smokey Black Goddess Pencil. In the crease, I added a little purple also from the OMFG palette, just to set things off. In all honesty, I spent more time cleaning up this look than I did actually creating it, but that's part of the deal when working with glitter ...

And to finish off the whole extravaganza, I slicked some Chi Chi Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick in Drama Queen onto my pout...

I just adore these pinky purple hues - they're so feminine and fun hey. There's lots more colours in the pressed glitter range too - there's a link to the site at the top of the page ...

Did you create a special look for NYE?

Take care of you,

  1. I love a pink/purple eye! This look is fantastic! What a palette. I've got the Chi Chi OMFG & the Drama Queen lippy too. Love both. No special NYE for me, I hope you had fun, you look ready to party.

    I laughed at the clean up comment, do you own a balaclava? Maybe you should wear it while you're applying glitter eyeshadow, lol.

    1. Thanks hon - delighted you like it ♥ NYE was pretty much the same as any other - blogging prep, photo session, more blogging prep, and then champagne while watching the midnight fireworks. As for the balaclava idea, I don't own one, but I reckon you've nailed the solution - how utterly awesome!

    1. Lol TP - I have quite a few of these liquid ones now, it's a lovely formula, very moisturising, but not what I would call matte. Still I prefer a bit of shine ♥
