Lit Cosmetics - Review - Giveaway!!!

By 11/24/2012 , , ,

A while back I ended up getting some Lit Cosmetics, I had placed an order but then sent a request to cancel it right away and even though they cancelled it somehow the order got shipped out anyway.

I was surprised to find it on my steps and sent an e-mail right away to them to let them know, I got a quick response from Jodie who is the owner of the company letting me know to just keep it and enjoy. I was impressed by how quick, polite, and professional the response was. Since then I have used the glitters and glitter base in quite a few of my makeup looks.

Anyway onto the photos!

It can be used on it's own or as a cosmetic enhancer. Lit is the perfect addition to your makeup collection and promises to take your application experiences to exciting new heights.

most stores will not carry this size.

Lit colours are available in 4 textures:

sparkles with a touch of colour. note:
Neon shimmers will glow under black
light—a white eyeliner base will enhance
this effect.

colour—a great alternative for
customers who are not into glitter but
are into shine and colour.

• Electrics - shocking colour with a little
hint of sparkle. note: Electrics will glow

will enhance this effect.

My Final Thoughts for Lit Cosmetics Clearly Liquid Glitter Base:


Cost:  $22.95 (Net Wt. 30 ml / 1 fl. oz.)

Texture:  Watery feeling but not runny.

Packaging:  Glass bottle with a screw off top.

Thoughts:  I really love this base, it doesn't irritate my eyes, it's very easy to work with. and it holds the glitter on really well. Another thing I love about Lit Cosmetics is the great customer service, the e-mails were promptly answered, and are very professional and polite.

Cons: The only con I could find on this one is the packaging, I love the sturdiness of the jar but I would love if the bottle opening had a cap that had a dropper type stop on it. I find that things get in the jar very easily with the large opening, if it had a dropper cap it would allow for it to be tilted and used a drop at a time in turning making it more sanitary. Don't let this deter you on it though, it's worth getting.

My Rating:  4.5 out of 5 Feathers!

My Final Thoughts for Lit Cosmetics Glitter:


Cost:  $12.95 (Net Wt. 4 grams / 0.14 o.z.)

Texture:  Varies with glitter size, grainy to chunky.

Packaging:  Square stackable jars (I believe these are  gram jars).

Thoughts:  I love the variety of these glitters, there are so many colors to choose from and on top of the shades you have up to 4 different sizes to pick from as well. I like the packaging because I can leave them separate or connect the jars as stackables. Again I want to point out the great customer service of the brand.

Cons: I personally don't find any cons with the glitters, some people might think the price is on the higher end. My thoughts on this though is for the amount of variety, sizes, and the great customer service it's definitely worth purchasing from Lit. I have placed another order yesterday already and look forward to swatching those when they arrive.

My Ratings:  5 out of 5 Feathers!



Are they Cruelty Free? Yes. The site catalog has the cruelty free logo and the owner has stated that they are cruelty free.

I really want to stress the importance of making sure you buy Cosmetic Grade Glitters!  Do not confuse craft glitters or other kinds of glitter with Cosmetic Grade Glitters. The difference is that non cosmetic grade glitters can scratch the cornea of the eye and do serious damage. So if you are using glitters for makeup purposes ensure you find the cosmetic grade!
