This NYX Glitter Palette is my first when it comes to full-on glitter makeup. It retails for $13 but I bought this on Cherry Culture back when they had one of their sales, paying a mere $7 for such a big palette; what a steal! Please note, it is currently out of stock on Cherry Culture and Nyxcosmetics.com but if for some miraculous reason you can get your hands on it and are looking for something different, I definitely recommend getting this palette.

It contains 21 micro-glitter cream shades; from your most brightest neons to neutral colors. These glitters apply as a cream but be warned that they are not colored gel bases. You are getting fully pigmented glitters in a clear gel base. They are great for adding a little pop of shine over your regular shadows. The palette comes with a double-ended sponge applicator and another with a sponge tip and synthetic brush tip. In my opinion, the synthetic tip works better when applying over your eyeshadow. I have seen people state that they use it with water when applying so you may want to try that if you see that applying it directly doesn't work for you. I will say, since it is glitter, you may want to wait to apply your foundation and concealer until after you apply the glitters. This way if you have any fallout you can easily wipe it away with a remover wipe instead of it stubbornly sticking to your face from the foundation, etc.
Packaging is standard for NYX products and pretty sturdy for a palette. It is much sturdier than my E.L.F. palette whose lid fell off after a month of using it. This palette is sturdy enough that at times I have trouble opening it lol.
You can see how pigmented these glitters are, even with just a clear gel base. My favorites are the silver, gold and bronze glitters since they work well for a bit of shine in a neutral eye look. I'm really glad I ended up getting this palette (I debated so much over it lol).
