Urban Decay Bondage Adhesive & Goldmine Heavy Metal Loose Glitter | Review & Swatches

With the festive season coming up, I think Urban Decay's heavy metal loose glitters make the perfect eye look. I purchased the shade Goldmine which is a yellow/gold glitter. First of all, I added a thin layer of the bondage adhesive onto my eyelid. Next I start adding the glitter. I was actually dreading applying the glitter as it's a messy task. I took off the lid of glitter as I find it easier this way as the glitter doesn't get everywhere. I held a tissue underneath my eye so the excess glitter didn't fall onto my face (once the glitter is your face it just doesn't budge!)

As a glitteroholic, I couldn't be happier with the end result. The glitter sparkles and looks so eye catching. I don't think you could achieve a more sparkly eye than this one! The staying power is just amazing and I had hardly any drop out during the day. Overall, at £10 per pot the loose glitters are a  must have for all glitter addicts! Christmas is all about sparkles so this look is just perfect for the feastive season or any special occasion!

What do you think of the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitters?
