Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Flash Glitter in Opal - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I may be almost 30 years old, but I do believe I'm a glitter-aholic for life. That being said, the Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Flash Glitter in the shade Opal is sooooo pretty! The photos do not do this shade justice! I don't have anything like it in my collection and it really looks beautiful on the eyes. And always remember, glitter for your nails and glitter for your eyes can be two very different products; always make sure your glitter is eye safe. Check out my full review below, including all the product info, after the pics!

Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Flash Glitter
Shade: Opal

Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Flash Glitter Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $19.00 (3 g full size). Available on the Gorgeous Cosmetics website, on the Nordstrom website, on the website, and everywhere else Gorgeous Cosmetics are sold.
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Kisses!

These loose, tiny, rounded particles of glitter are specially designed for use around the eye area. Intensely reflective, Colour Flash guarantees high shine and bold results. For best results, adhere with Gorgeous Cosmetics Glitz Fix or mix with Cake Liner Sealant.

This is best applied over a glitter base - something sticky is a must for loose glitter! Products like MAC Fix+ or any other type of makeup setting spray/prep spray that you would spray onto your brush first just won't work with this type of glitter the way you will want them too. I highly recommend investing in a glitter base if you're into wearing glitters. Of course you could use an eyeshadow primer itself, but as you can see from the swatches it doesn't stick nearly as dense or as good. It also falls off quicker, where as a glitter primer/base really grabs hold of the glitter and helps to prevent fall-out.

Currently available in 8 shades. I have the shade Opal and wow is it gorgeous! One of my favorite glitter shades ever! I think from the other shades, I'd add Diamond and Icicle to my wish list. I'll insert a photo now of the eight shades they have available (image taken from the Gorgeous Cosmetics website).

The only negative I could say about this is the price point. $19 for a pot of glitter is quite the steep price but I am no stranger to that price tag for a glittery product. I know the price point may seem high for a glitter, but if you really would like to try this then I'd recommend waiting for a sale or coupon code. If you are a Beauty Bar Sample Society member I'm pretty sure you can use your $15 off $30 code on anything they sell on their website (but I can't remember).

Overall, I really loved the color like crazy. I do think $19 is a bit much but I definitely recommend the shade Opal! If you're a glitter-aholic like myself, then you need to check out the shades from Gorgeous Cosmetics!
