Glitter 101 -- Swatches!

Hey everyone,

So this is the part where I swatch all the stuff I mentioned in my glitter 101 video.. I had every intention of putting the swatches at the end of the video, but I barely made it under 10 minutes so I figured I'd just do it on here.

These are all the glitter products that I have, even some that weren't mentioned in the video, like I bought my first NYX candy glitter liners after filming so I'm gonna throw them in here :)

So let's get started!

First up: Ben Nye Aqua Glitters
Colors shown from left to right: Silver Prism, Galactic Violet, Fuschia, Purple, Blue, Neon Green, Gold and Copper:

I didn't let them dry completely before I snapped the picture, so if they look a little runny, that's why!

Too Faced Starry Eyed & Urban Decay Heavy Metal
Swatched first alone, from L-R: Too Faced Mad, Mad Love, UD: Metalhead, Spandex, Air Guitar and Distortion:

Then, in the same order as above, swatched over a black pencil eyeliner:

Sephora Glitter Liners
Alone, then over black -- Silver and Gold:

Icing Glitter Liners
Alone, then over black -- Purple, Blue, Pink and Black:

See how nasty they are!! (haha) But, I will say that they look a million times better if put over a black base... except for the black one, which just looks worse. :P

Hard Candy Walk the Line Glitter Eyeliners and Cream Glitters
Night Sky, Licorice, Flashy and High Beam:

Wet n Wild Color Icon Glitter Liners
Alone, then with their pencil counterparts -- Rock On! and Da Bomb!:

NYX Candy Glitter Liners
Alone, then over black -- Hot Candy, Lavender, Baby Pink, and Crystal:

I didn't swatch the Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers palettes, only because I couldn't think of an efficient way to do it! The individual colors have no names and the colors repeat quite a bit, so I will do those in their own little video.

So yep, see y'all soon!! :)
