Review: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics ‘Cosmetic Glitter’ in Magenta
The problem with glitters, for me, is that I see their beauty and think, “I want to rub this on my eyelids.” OCC’s suggestion that we “mix [the glitters] with [our] favorite hairstyling products” seems comparatively similar to what a 7th grader might have done in the 1990s. People might also mix it with nail polish or lip gloss, but that doesn’t hold a candle to coating your lids in pure discoball glitter madness.The magenta glitter, which definitely comes across as a fuchsia-y purple, is clunky and square, offering the potential to scratch up your lovely corneas.
Fortunately/unfortunately, I’ve always been a bit of a rebel. Hypothetically, if you were considering using this glitter on the eye area, which you totally shouldn’t do for safety reasons, I might recommend putting the glitter over a particularly gooey base, such as Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy, in order to get a nice, opaque layer of glitter. However, I know you wouldn’t do something so blatantly reckless. I only put my eyes at risk for the sake of science. I am the Madame Curie of cosmetic glitter.
OCC’s Cosmetic Glitters retail for $14 for 0.08oz of pure sparkle, ringing in at $175 per ounce.
