 I am a huge glitter fan at the moment now that I've got the hang of it I love throwing in some glitter to the looks I create on Instagram (if you aren't following me already then heres my link www.instagram.com/aqeela_k). These are two products I've not really seen reviews, swatches or used from Too Faced.

Too Faced Glamour Dust:

Too Faced Glamour Dust is a stunning loose glitter powder.
A new generation of glitter, this luxurious pigment powder merges all the glamour of glitter with an ethereal, feminine and fabulous effect. In a range of sophisticated shades, these can be layered over other eye shadows for a new dimension, or worn alone for a more subtle effect.
Use them in conjunction with Shadow Insurance Glitter Glue to create sparkling eyes which last from dusk to dawn. Build them up for dramatic looks or dust a sheer wash for an ethereal glow. Designed with the perfect balance of metallic pigments, shimmer and pure glamour, these pigments are versatile and easy to work with.
These are described to be both metallic and said to contain glitter both I can agree with, I'm not sure why they aren't mentioned so much as they are absolutely stunning! These are a mixture of glitter and and metallic pigment powder, I have loved playing with both of them! I prefer to use them over a similar shade eyeshadow to really make them pop! Too Faced have mentioned a couple of the shades can also be used as highlighters but I personally wouldn't as the glitter wouldn't really go well on my cheeks. I have found I can use them with MAC Fix+ but I prefer using Ben Nye Glitter Glue as through the day I have experienced fall out when only using them with MAC Fix+. There is a total of four colours and I'm definitely drawn into them. They com in glass jars bigger than your average sized glitter pot probably twice as big meaning lots of content. I also love the packaging and how easy it is to get to the product rather than glitter pots with a sieve that has lots of dots.

Too Faced Glitter Glaze:

Too Faced Glitter Glaze Sparkling Shadow Top Coat adds an intense shimmer to your eye makeup.
Boasting a starry eyed formula which dries instantly, Glitter Glaze Sparkling Shadow Top Coat is sure to get you noticed and can be worn in two ways. Layer over your favourite eye shadows for a brilliant flash of metallic colour or wear alone for an intense eye catching shimmer.
Available in two versatile, amped up, shimmering shades, Glitter Glaze Sparkling Shadow Top Coat adheres on contact with the skin for instant glittering effects. Essential for creating show-stopping party looks, this innovative shadow top coat is sure to be a BeautyBay.com best-seller.
Another product from Too Faced which is slightly different and unique to whats on the market these days. These remind me of cream eyeshadows I owned from Avon about 10+ years ago. With a sponge applicator and mascara like packaging. As the name suggests 'top coat' I thought this was glitter designed to go over your eyeshadows. Well they are similar and can be worn over eyeshadows which I found came away on to the wand when I applied this over. So I preferred to use them as I would with a cream eyeshadow and to intensify I added more loose glitter over. These are great for creating bridal/occasional looks because they add a different type of oomph to the usual asian bridal looks. As they are metallic I also played about with them as eyeliners using an eyeliner brush and they payoff was amazing leaving a eye-catching finish.

Overall I love both products from Too Faced and if like me you love glitter then you need to give these a shot!
