I wanted to share the Makeup Geek Sparklers with you. Makeup Geek describes the Sparklers as loose, reflective particles that create a glitter-like effect. I feel they are best applied with a sticky base like Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy or Darling Girl Glitter Glue. For my swatches I applied them with Pixie Epoxy. Makeup Geek sent me this collection.

Just swatched the @MakeupGeekCosmetics Sparklers! I love the colors. With no sifters, the glitter gets everywhere, but thankfully they will have them soon. They are so gorgeous though! I can’t wait to play with them. Milky Way is stunning and my favorite. I used @fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to swatch these.

I put down a tissue before putting the Sparklers in my light box. I just opened and shut the lid of each one carefully to take the product shot, but still ended up with a lot of spillage inside the light box and on myself. It’s pretty, like splatter paint artwork. However, soo messy!
I did make a no-sound swatch video to try to show off the colors more so you can get an idea for how truly sparkly they are.
L to R Row 1 – Solstice – Martian – Solar Flare – Dark Matter – Halo – Lightyear – Stargazer – Zodiac
L to R Row 2 – Constellation – Asteroid – Supernova – Aurora – Satellite – Milky Way – Nebula
Milky Way, Nebula, Supernova, Dark Matter, Aurora, Satellite, and Light Year are my favorites.
I swatched these on Dec. 19 and have held off on posting about them because I was waiting for the Makeup Geek sifters to be in stock for this product. These definitely need a sifter, like I stated on IG and Tumblr. They are too messy, without a sifter, in my opinion.
I could not wear these without a sticky base. They would not adhere to my lids. The best way I found to apply these is as an accent to a look. So apply your eyeshadow as you like, then use a sticky base on the lid, then pat these on to the sticky base. Then clean up the fallout. Then apply the rest of your makeup.
What do you think of the Makeup Geek Sparklers? How would you wear them?
