Throwback Thursday: glitter

Years and years ago (as with everything I post on Thursdays) this product was a special edition for Christmas. Loved it, of course, and bought it. Here is it’s golden sister:

These little glass bottles are by the brand Yves Saint Laurent, or YSL. The gold one can be used as an eyeshadow, or dusted lightly on the collarbones. The silver one is a pure glitter, so beware of a lot of fallout.

They last forever, as you might be able to tell from the picture in the right. For swatching, I first applied some Glitter Glue by Too Faced.

The second picture shows you, that the Glitter Glue is transparent, which I normally don’t want from an eyeshadow base. For instance, I like the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden, because it covers all my veins on my eyelids.

For an everyday use, the silver might not be your first pick. But for a special occasion like NYE, this glitter is stunning. The glitter is so finely milled, there are absolutely no big particles.

What product from YSL is your favorite?
