How to Use
Rated 4.65 out of 5 stars
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.
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.

Definitely one of the best and most effective glitter primers I have used. I have been careful with the packaging since reading the reviews. The only downside is, although it works, you can feel it in your lids. It reminds me of like a light lash glue.

I love this primer and use it every day for all types of shadows and pigments. I find that it doesn't crease at all and is very lightweight.

The product itself works great, but the tube itself is terrible. Mine broke at the nozzle
AJ from USA
Okay this primer is great but like many others have said the bottle breaks. It's an awesome primer but I wouldn't recommend using it alongside another primer, that made my eyes super watery. Love it but waiting for packaging improvements!

So I have been cursed with incredibly oily eyelids. No eyeshadow ever lasts long, even with other primers and setting sprays. My usual go to was discontinued. I went looking for a replacement and the lady recommended this brand. I gave it a shot and after my 8 hour work day, the eyeshadow was still nice and pigmented. Even after heading outside a few times in hot, desert weather, it stayed put. I'm amazed and will keep this on hand always!

I really love this primer a lot, I always use it if I'm going to be using any shimmery shadow or glitter and it helps it go on better and stay much longer. My problem is every single one I've got has broken and I've never been able to use up the tube. I can't even get halfway through it before the top snaps off. I would keep buying it if I could actually use all of what I pay for but this has happened THREE times to me and I know I'm not the only person too.

This is my favorite glitter primer and even an eye primer too! If you use it as an eye primer apply with ring finger and let dry a little so it's not as tacky then apply eye shadow. I've tried more expensive eye primers and this works better! Lasts all day even when it's hot and I have a face mask on or it rains a little.

This really works for me it holds all the glitter in place no fall out.
Alyssa from El Paso
It's great! Sticky but not annoyingly so. I also use it as eyeshadow primer sometimes.

I love nyx products so much, and before my skin became so sensitive I'd use this all the time, but unfortunately my skin texture changed, my eyes would get itchy the second i added this onto my lids. I bought a second bottle thinking maybe the first one went bad but there's something in the formula that I'm allergic to!
lari from dtx
i liked how it made the glitter stay on my eyes, that's pretty much all i have to say, but it's good!
Lese from Florida
The container this comes in ALWAYS breaks. I've never been able to finish a bottle. Sucks because this is a perfect primer for glitter or underperforming shimmers.

I bought this recently to see if it made glitter eyeshadow worth it anymore. I so often can make a fun eye look, only to end up with glitter down my face and it melting into my crease only a few hours later. This product has COMPLETELY changed that.
The formula is light and very tacky - which is exactly what you want. I've been using it directly on my eyelids after applying a base, and using a flat brush to lightly pack on glitter shadow. It dramatically cuts down on fallout, makes the glitter eyeshadows stand out, and they last all day!
This will be a staple in my make up kit from now on!

I rubbed and rubbed with my fingers and dry cloth it didn't come off until I used water. Best glitter glue ever

I use this for all my shimmers, and it works wonderfully, but the neck of the tube breaks very early on in using the product and has on every single tube I've owned. I've had to rip off the tip and use tape over the hole because the primer leaks

I didn't want to splurge on the Too Faced glitter glue so I went for this one instead, and I'm happy I saved the money. It keeps the Nyx loose pigment sparkles/shadows locked in place for hours. I've also tried it with the Trixie Cosmetics face glitters and it keeps them in place too. I use a small flat synthetic brush to spread it evenly around where I want to pack the pigment on
Kelly from Michigan
I used this primer overtop of matte eyeshadow I already had in place with my usual eye primer underneath everything. This glitter primer works very well to keep chunky, flaky shimmer shades in place. I don't use glitter near my eyes, but this still works a dream to hold shimmer in place. I also wear glasses, and a few hours after doing my makeup I usually have sparkles all over my lenses. NOT TODAY! the glitter primer held it down and my glasses are squeaky clean.
Anyone mentioning trouble with creasing, I would suggest using a regular eye primer first before anything.
KRL from Arkansas
I love this glitter glue for any sparkle I want to add to an eye look. I normally use it with my shimmer shades, pack on the color and it stays put, no fall out and makes the shimmer so vibrant and beautiful. Since using this I have gotten so many questions about what shimmer shadows I use now, even though it's the same ones as before, just better!
Lex from Wooster OH
I put the glue on the lids of my eye with a brush! A little goes a LONG way!
kaycee from NJ
I love this for the first hour of my look to make my shimmer pop, but it completely flakes off in big chunks after that. I'm going to try one more time with a concealed crease instead of on top of my shadow to see if it works better but I'm not hopeful.
Suquoia from Sacramento, CA
A little goes a long way, sticky enough to adhere glitter, get amazing pay-off from glitters, metallics, etc
The only thing is gotta be careful not to use too much or it will take longer to dry or you can get transfer
Mads from MPLS
I bought this to help my shimmer and glitter shadows wear longer. This product works great! It helps reduce creasing and keeps glitter and shimmer shadows in place, and makes them extra vibrant. I think this product is a great value.
AshleyC from Lithonia, GA
I bought my first tube a few years ago and it's the only product I use for glitter or loose powder when I'm doing a cut crease! Will continue to use this because it's good quality, doesn't crease too much when used in moderation and it's a great price!
