I'm loving the fact that Spring fashions are slowly seeping onto the shop floors, really I am. But something inside me misses the glitters which covered our Winter 2012 fashions, so I thought I'd throw together this sparkly little blogpost as a review AND a reminisce.
I managed to snap these Topshop glitters up in the sales in January and although I'm not 100% sure how I will be using them, I can't help myself from twisting the top of them periodically just to watch them twinkle!
The loose powders come in these little pots with sprinkle tops attached (like you get in talcum powder). However, I took the sprinkle tops off as they just get in the way as far as I'm concerned! I got all four of these powders for just £4 and I think they are so gorgeous...
*I think this colour is most likely going to be used the most as it will add a nice twinkle to a smoky eye*
*This is a cute snowy colour which will be really nice come Winter 2013... very Jack Frost-esque*
*The gold is so striking, I'm tempted to add this over the top of a lip gloss for a unique look*
*These blue flecks would be so pretty as an eyeliner. I think they'd also be cool at the festivals in the summer to embellish my facepaint*
I also picked up these Louise Gray glitters for just £2 which I think would be beautiful with the right kind of nail art... I'd also like to see them at the inner and outer corners of my eyes and maybe even as a bindi...
*The photo is VERY blurry (if ya hadn't noticed) but the blue ones on the left are heart-shaped, while the silver ones are circular*
I'm really keen to get practising with these glitters and find some cool ways of wearing them into summer. Do you have any ideas of how I can wear these? Do you think glitter should be reserved just for winter? Have you got any winter pleasures which you try to bring into the warmer months, beauty-related or otherwise? Ovaltine is one of my favorites.
Love and snuggles
