As someone who loves the beauty industry, I love trying out new products and formulas. Aside from wanting to support innovative new brands, trying new products helps me to write honest reviews and recommend formulas based on a reader’s preferences.
Needless to say, I own a ton of beauty products, so I’ve embarked on a journey to share my huge beauty collection, category by category. In today’s post, I will be sharing my single eyeshadow collection.
Please keep reading to see my single eyeshadow collection.

Glitter Collection | Glitter Gel
ColourPop Star Gazing Glitter Gel Trio ($12.00, CF) – trio now discontinued
The ColourPop Star Gazing Glitter Gel Trio consists of three mini glitter gels that are easy to apply to the eye. Unlike the previously mentioned Smolder Glitters, these Glitter Gels are more transformative and sheer on the eye.
Lemonhead LA x Euphoria – Euphoric Glitter Pro-Squad ($120.00, CF)
Lemonhead LA’s Spacepaste and Glowjam glitter gels have been making waves in the beauty industry for years. These high-quality, pigmented glitter gels are made to shine behind the lens of a camera or on the screen. the gels in the Euphoric Glitter Pro-Squad kit were inspired by and used on HBO’s hit show, Euphoria.
Shades included: Houdini, Mulholland, Private School, Groupie, Electric Daze, and Hollyweird
Glitter Collection | Liquid Glitter
Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow – Kitten Karma ($24.00, CF)
My Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Kitten Karma* has been a favorite since I purchased it several years ago. This champagne copper color acts as the perfect glitter eye topper for fans of glamorous looks that don’t require glitter glue.
Some shades in this line dry out more quickly than others, but Kitten Karma is a standout shade that glamour lovers are sure to enjoy.
The Smolder Cosmetics Radiant Glitters in the shades Sultry and Gun Metal are completely unique to my collection because they are the darkest, smokiest glitters that I own. I love using these for mega glam, deep smokey eyes.

Final Thoughts on my Single Glitters Collection
Given the size of my beauty collection, I do not have a large single glitter collection. Although glitter can take any look to the next level, I do not regularly wear glitter in my day-to-day life. Why?
First, glitter tends to be messy to apply. Second, many glitters sold in the United States are not eye-safe. Glitter particles can cause eye abrasions or infections if they get caught in the eyes. Third, most glitters are not truly biodegradable.
However, when I am reading for glitter, I prefer a liquid or gel glitter formula. This formula makes it easy to apply glitter with greater precision and less mess.
