I looooooove glitter. Love it, love it, love it. However, as someone trying to cut back on plastic, glitter is becoming no bueno.
Then the gates of heaven opened, and I came across festivalglitter.co.uk – the website is like mermaids, unicorns and sparkly shit had a threesome, and then their love-child threw up all over it. It’s fabulous!
Festival Glitter stocks tons of glitter from fine cuts to chunky ones at reasonable prices including biodegradable glitter. Can I have an amen up in this joint? Because I’m a massive 90s fashion fan – especially the grunge – I’ve been dreaming for ages of a black smokey eye with black glitter. Not gunmetal or silvery or whatever else – B L A C K. My prayers were finally answered.
With my purchase, I also got a glitter mix gel (spoiler alert – wasn’t very impressed by it). I love, love, love this glitter. The glitter comes in a small plastic container (unfortunately, and as far as I’m aware it’s not recyclable). The product itself is excellent, just as sparkly as regular plastic glitter, especially for black glitter. Just black glitter is really hard to come, usually, it has gunmetal or silver undertones to make it more sparkly.
I do recommend investing in a good glitter fix gel or glue. I had some fallout when I wore it. As you can imagine, if it’s a bit of gold or light glitter, when fallout happens it’s not a big deal. However, with black glitter. Ugh, this gave panda eyes a whole new meaning. I’d expect fallout with glitter, and I don’t think it’s inherently the product’s fault – you come to expect that with glitter, and I feel like in regards to that there is no difference between biodegradable glitter or regular plastic glitter.
I don’t think there is much else to add to this. I love the stuff and will be purchasing more biodegradable glitters in the future.
