Sparkles Lip Glitter

If you read my Ideal Home Show Haul post then you will have seen that I mentioned these lip glitters. Well I have finally tried them out and thought I would let you guys know what I think! 

At the show Sparkles Lips were offering 1 colour for £10 (usually £15 each) or 3 for £25. As there were so many colours to choose from, I decided to go for 3 and get colours I would usually wear on my lips rather than blue or green. Although I was very tempted to buy some more funky colours for my makeup kit and photo shoots. As I bought 3 colours I received 3 retractable lip brushes, which I'm really impressed with. 

The glitter is so easy to apply. You have to clean your lips of any lipstick, gloss or balm before applying the adhesive (white pot). I found it easier to apply the adhesive with a cotton bud rather than the brush in the pot as it really tickled my lips and went everywhere! Then dip your brush into the glitter and apply to the lips. You may have to do this a few times to cover your lips and fill in any gaps. Once applied, leave lips open for a couple of minutes to dry and then you're ready to go. 

Here's my first attempt - it could be a lot neater but you get the idea!

I absolutely love the colours I chose and think they will definitely be getting a fair amount of use. The nice thing about the paler coral is that you could even get away with wearing it during the day because it's subtle. 

My only reservation before I tried them was that I thought I would be put off by the texture but once it's dry you forget all about it. And it's great that they have such a good lasting power (up to 12 hours). Admittedly I haven't tested whether they last for 12 hours but once dry it doesn't budge so I can imagine it would last quite a while. A major bonus for me is that the glitter is so easy to get off and doesn't leave your lips irritated after. I used a face wipe and makeup remover (tested separately) and held against my lips for about 30 seconds before wiping it off and both easily removed it. 

I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for something different for a night out or as part of a makeup kit for making an impact. I can't wait to get using these and see what effect they give with a full face of striking makeup. 

What do you think of these lip glitters? Have you tried them or anything similar?

    1. Yeah it comes off really easily, all you have to do is hold a face wipe or some makeup remover on a cotton pad and hold against your lips for about 30 seconds and then it wipes straight off! X
