Most Helpful Positive Review Holds like Concrete, Washes easily
I hadn't worked with glitter much and was nervous because it has the tendency to stick to everything and have too much fall out. This glitter primer does the job. Period. Smooth, satiny application and picks up every piece of glitter. I had an unfortunate incident where I fell asleep with a glittery eye look and when I woke up, my other eyeshadows had worn off, but the glitter was still in place exactly where I had applied it. This primer also works great as a base to enhance the color of the Nyx Pigments. Haven't tried it with lips yet, but for glittery eye looks, I am sold.
Most Helpful Critical Review Keeps the glitter on, but creases
I was looking for a reasonably priced glitter primer and was excited to see this from NYX, especially since the packaging is cute! I will say, it definitely made my glitter eyeshadow show up better, and it also reduces fallout significantly. It also makes my eyeshadow last longer, unfortunately it could not survive my crease. I have normal/dry skin and hooded eyes, and my eyeshadow wore away badly in the crease and set into folds. The regular primer I use (which is high end) does not do that. Granted this keeps the glitter on well, so I'll probably continue to use it, but I will do so only on the flat planes of my eye where I want the glitter to stick, so I'll have to use two primers on heavy glitter days (which isn't ideal). I was hoping to find my new everyday eyeshadow primer (because i do where a lot of glitter) but I've just incorporated another product into my stock.

Super affordable and makes sure my glitters stay all night and don't transfer into my crease.
Holds even the most stubborn glitters
Veta from Kentucky
I often use pressed pigments and loose glitters so I consider this a staple in my collection. Loose glitters can be the most difficult to apply. NYX Glitter Primer makes even the most stubborn glitters apply with ease. It makes pressed pigments apply like a dream with zero fallout. A little goes a long way so one tube lasts a long time and you can't beat the price.

keeps tiny glitter particles in place
Meets all expectations!
Bethany from Joplin
I haven't tried this on my eyes yet, but have tested it on my hand. The glitter sticks without any problems and will stick as long as heavy pressure isn't applied. I don't think anybody would apply a large amount of pressure on their eyes anyway.
I love it, its my go to!
Diamond from Chicago
Very good at holding the glitter

Glittery Shadow Sticks!
Bethany from Ohio
I love wear glittery eyeshadow. I have been using another "glitter glue" for over a year and it has never held the eyeshadow well. This one was thick which I liked. I would squeeze some of the product onto my pinky and apply it to my lid. It held amazingly! I experienced very little if even any glitter eyeshadow fallout. I will purchase this again when I run out!
Persephone from Las Vegas, NV
Worked great for making my unsafe glitter eyeshadow more eyesafe. I was a little worried because it comes out the tube beige but it seemed to dry clear. Definitely stuck to the glitter, albeit a little too well, but that may have been operator error. Came off easily with my cleanser at the end of the night.
I would recommend this
ElenaZ from Indy
My new favorite in my professional makeup case. The good quality of the product, perfect tube applicator ( easy to control the amount of product to use). I use this as a shadow primer as well, holds very well. Highly recommend!
Does keep glitter on
Lilly from Indiana
Has been the best glitter holder on my lids so far.
Great product horrible tube
Amanda from Oregon
Love this primer. Acts as a great glue for shadows. I use it daily regardless if I'm using glitter or not. BUT, the down fall is the tube starts to break at the neck and the primer starts to ooze out where u don't want it to
Burn my eyes
Indi from Texas
As soon as I put it on it burned my eye and it didn't stop even after I took it off

This product really met my expectations! I loved it!!
Holds very well
Michelle from Baldwin Park
A little goes a long way and it holds basically any glitter. It kept my glitter on through a whole BTS concert so you know it's good!!
V from California
So I had bought this bc I heard everyone raving about it. I don't use glitter often but when I do I had used this. And I tried it about 4-5 times and omg. This just ruined my eye makeup. I creases horribly after 30 minutes. I even tried putting less of the primer but still didn't do me any justice. Honestly, using eyelash glue was way much better.
Amy_B from Glendora, CA
It definitely holds any type of glitter.
Maureen from USA
I use this primer everytime I wear a shimmery eyeshadow. It makes the colors pop!
THE standard for glitter glue
Earthymoon from Huntsville, AL
I have tried SOOOO many glitter glues ranging from super cheap to super expensive. This is my favorite. First off I have very sensitive eyes and several adhesive allergies. This is the only glitter glue that I can tolerate on a regular basis.
It's easy to work with. I apply with a flat synthetic brush and let it dry for about 30 seconds before applying glitter or shimmer. If I get delayed in applying the shimmer/glitter, the primer stays tacky but doesn't glue my hooded eyes together. The product is water soluble and is easy to remove at the end of the day. It's also easy to remove from my brushes.
This is THE best primer our there
Stella from OKC
I've used both this one & the one without glitter. I love this one! It has kept my shadow & glitter in place for the past 2 1/2 hours. And I cried; zero running or smudging.
An absolute must buy!
Becca from IL - Illinois
It's a sticky base to help glitters and shimmers to stay put and call to the skies!!!!
Tutu from USA
does what it is supposed to
June from ON
it's easy to apply (I reccomend using a small shadow brush or even a liner/smudger brush), it's creamy and will keep glitter on lockdown. it's not super glue or anything you may find your self with a couple of rebellious sparkle bits out of place but let's be practical here. if you do a lot of (especially loose) glitter looks pick this one up, you'll be glad you did.
Riah from Minnesota
This is great and I love that you can feel when it's dried down for you to be able to apply what you are priming for. I think the only thing for me was that I must have applied too much whenever I first used it because it looked chunky on my under eye.
