Get Glittery & Glamorous with Christine Cosmetics Sparkling Dust-Review, swatch and Looks


Last year has been of glittery bright eyes that can make anyone swoon. People have been searching for the glitters everywhere to achieve that fine glitter fit for their eyes that looks luxurious to wear. If you have been following me on Facebook & instagram, you would know I recently did eye looks using glitters. Since many people asked me, I am reviewing my recent loves Christine Cosmetics loose glitters.

CHRISTINE COSMETICS SPARKLING DUST:

SPARKLING DUST : Iridescence color with multidimensional shine & Pearlescent Effect for Eyes,Cheeks & Hair.



My Experience:

Christine cosmetics has been my favorite local brand for a very long time be it compacts or lipsticks. I was a bit skeptical while getting these loose glitters but now I am glad I did.
These glitters come in small screw open clear plastic pots with a black caps that close securely. Once you open the cap, there is a seal over the opening which you have to tug open and good thing is its resealable if you be gentle with it. This way its super safe to carry around with you.I have dropped the pots a couple of times(clumsy me) and there was no damage to the pots and there was spillage of product even with the seal removed. The opening is small so its easier to control the product you dispense. Here I suggest taking small amounts of product in the cap and then using them according to need. The clear pot makes it easy to see the color without opening the pot (plus they look super cute on the vanity). The pots have the color names on a sticker under it that makes it easier to identify them. The glitter itself is very fine and there are no large chunks in it. I have 2 colors Gold &  White Gold, both translate beautifully to their true colors on the lid. The finely milled glitter reflects light and looks absolutely gorgeours to wear. Like loose glitters it is not self adhesive and when used dry, the under eye fall out is enormous and it tends to fall all the time.

Tips for Application :

Use a wet brush (preferably wet with a setting spray)  to pack the glitters over the lid
When the glitter is still wet apply dry glitter with the help of your fingers and pack to the density you like.
Always use a setting spray after you are done to lock the makeup in place and avoid falling out of glitters.
Don't use lash glue for these glitters, that will require alot of amount of glitter and will be difficult to remove afterwards.
Apply eyeliner after the glitter application, this will give you clean eye liner. Applying eyeliner before with get it all glittery and you have to apply it again.
Let the glitter dry without opening you eyes to much, this will prevent it from early creasing.

  8. These look amazing. I agree, loose shimmers can be a bit trickier to use as they tend to fall out and spread every where. Love that look u created. You look gorgeous MA <3

  25. Ah! People like you who handle loose pigments and products need to be celebrated :D I cannot... I fumble, I drop, I spread :/
    These do look enticing <3 Have you tried Vipera or Sweet Touch glitters/pigments so that we can compare? :)

    1. Thank you Bia for the amazing words! I have been eyeing both vipera and sweet touch for a while now. Vipera glitters are good only downfall being the price tag because you need a sealer with them that is equally expensive. Sweet toucj is exactly the same as christine ones as per swatching iver the counter
