Antipodean Beauties - Glitter

I found this weeks Antipodean Beauties Challenge topic a little more well challenging than last weeks. Glitter is not something I incorporate into my make up very often. I much prefer the au natural look, glitter does not fit into that equation.

For this challenge I have decided to show you a couple of my favourite glitter products that I have in my stash. As I mentioned above glitter isn't a regular part of my beauty routine so I had limited products to choose from but here they are!

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
At first glance this is not a glitter product but when you look closely, under the right light you will find blue glitter. This shower gel is awesome. Seriously, it is like washing with musk stick. The sweetness could be overpowering for some but I love it. The only downside is it is limited edition and insanely popular when it is available. 

OPI Nail Lacquer in Rainbow Connection
When applied to your nails it is like a rainbow party for your nails. It looks like what I imagine fairies throw up would look like. Awesome. 

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 81 Fantasme
If you are a regular reader of Luxury on the Lips you will know how much I love the Chanel cream eye shadows. They are absolutely amazing and Fantasme is actually a very versatile shade. It can be used over the top of another shadow for extra sparkle, as an inner corner highlight or even as a highlighter for the cheekbones. It is also quite a fine glitter so it more wearable. 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in 002 Sparkling Black
These Rimmel eye liners are fantastic for the 'drug store' price. This is one is especially pretty for the fine silver glitter in the black base. I find it can really brighten up the eyes and can look less harsh than straight black eye liner. This is also really creamy, easy to apply and long lasting. 

Buxom Lip Polish in Gina
This Buxom Lip Polish is as glittery as it gets for my lips. I usually prefer creamy lip products to slightly shimmery. Gina has a fine blue glitter through it that really makes my lips look plump and healthy. The colour is also gorgeous. 

Fantasme, Sparkling Black & Gina. 

So there is week two of the Antipodean Beauties Challenge! I am liking this challenge thing so far. It is pushing me to write a bit more and about things that I wouldn't necessarily post about. 

Once I get over this sickness I have been hit with I will hopefully be posting more. I still have to meet my self imposed 10 post challenge for this month.
