You should know that when I say glitter bug, I do my best George Michael (no not the Arrested Development character but of Wham! fame) Wake Me Up Before You Go Go Voice. Try it. Glitter bug.
Ahem, that's not what you came for you came to read about the new Urban Decay Heavy Metals Loose Glitter Pots. A collection of six, finely milled full on glitter products that can be used on both the face (that includes the eyes) and body. At £10 each I was pleasantly surprised at the price point but do keep in mind that you have to purchase the Urban Decay Bondage glitter adhesive separately which also retails for £10.
As an ex-dance student the smell of hair spray, glitter stuck on my scalp and Lycra all came screaming back to me. Screaming. Nothing and I mean nothing attaches itself to the skin quite like glitter - three months on, 100 or so showers later and you will still find the odd glitter particle wedged in your eyebrow. Needless to say I've grown a little weary of glitter in any aspect but I will admit that the six Urban Decay Heavy Metals Loose Glitter Pots are beautiful in terms of colour and the creative possibilities are endless. The six shades are: ACDC - an almost lilac toned purple, Catfight - a medium pink, Goldmine - a slightly olive green tinged gold, Loaded - your typical Kelly green, Pyrotechnics - could be described as a white shade but it is more of a multi-dimensional pearlescent medley and lastly Reverb - typical royal blue.
Although I'm not a glitter fan I do appreciate how well packaged the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Loose Glitter Pots are, each shade has an inbuilt shifter to prevent waste and somewhat control dispersion. How you apply the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Loose Glitters and where is entirely up to you but I do recommend purchasing a tube of Urban Decay Bondage glitter adhesive too. This clear adhesive is not only easy to paint on (it lends itself to being an eyeliner rather well) but once dry it does trap the glitter and ensures it is going nowhere fast. I will be truthful and say that the Urban Decay Bondage glitter adhesive does feel a little tight and uncomfortable on the skin once completely dry but hey that's the price you pay to get you glam on!
Both the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Loose Glitter Pots (£10 each) and the Urban Decay Bondage (£10) launch tomorrow at selected Debenhams stores.
