2014 Lit Cosmetic Glitter Review & Giveaway
Lit Cosmetics Lit Kits ($19.95 for 0.28 oz.) launched at Sephora in 2013 and OMG it's just what the Doctor ordered for us glitter fanatics. The Lit Kits in Sephora contains a full sized glitter (0.14 oz), a mini Clearly Liquid Base (0.14 oz), and a mini application brush.
I first learned about Lit Cosmetics in 2011 after watching Tattianna Ward on YouTube (BeatFaceHoney). I placed my order to this Canadian based company and got my order within 2 weeks here in California. Ever since then I have been hooked on the No Glitter No Glory company. I would have to say that 80% of the glitters that I own are from Lit Cosmetics, and I have hundreds of glitters.
Lit Cosmetics are available in shimmer, metallics, solids, electrics and now holographic. They are also available in different sizes, S1, S2, S3 and S4 with S2 being the most popular for me. I will use the S3 when I want the larger glitter reflects but I haven't tried S4 yet.
Over the last 3 years I have seen different techniques on Youtube on how to apply the glitter and clearly glitter base. Some use a clean cotton q-tip, a brush, and even their fingers. My favorite is using a thin brush, dipping it in the clearly liquid glitter base, then dipping that wet brush into the glitter and apply. My technique when I want to lightly dust the glitter (especially with Barbie Shops) is to take a fluffy brush, spray MAC Fix + lightly on it and then get a little bit of the glitter and lightly pat glitter in areas that need extra sparkle.
2014 is here and Lit is bringing some major glitter magic to market. Sephora has the Holographic Lit Kit shades in Disco Diva, Superfly and Rich & Famous. (You can also find Lit Cosmetics at Beautylish)
Disco Diva: Is a rich grape/violet purple with small reflects of magenta and this cool rainbow holographic effect.
Superfly: Is a smokey grey with rainbow holographic reflects.
Rich and Famous (Holographic): Is a rich yellow gold with the 3D rainbow holographic effect.
New to the line up in 2014 are Heartbreaker, Bar Star and Glittergasm. Be on the look out for these amazing glitters. I am going to use these glitters in a few upcoming makeup tutorials and I will add the videos to this blog post as I create them.
