How To Apply PaintGlow Unicorn Glitter Face & Body Gel Kit

You may have seen the full-size 50ml PaintGlow Chunky Glitter tubes at Superdrug which are currently on sale at £3.95 down from £5.99 but I decided to buy a set of 6 13ml tubes from Browns Cosmetics for £12.99 instead so that I’d have more to swatch! Half of them are iridescent glitters and the other half are metallic glitters, the set also comes with a brush and sponge which you really need to apply it evenly.

The glitter gels claim to be the only chunky glitter in the world that is in a ready to use formula. I think that means the glitters are mixed in with the quick-drying fixing gel so you don’t have to mix anything together. It’s cosmetically certified, not tested on animals and made in the UK; It’s actually made in Cumbria so it’s northern glitter fit for a northern lass!

As you can see in the swatches all of the glitters are hexagonal and in two sizes, the products I’m using from left to right are:

Heartbreaker is a pink iridescent glitter

Mystic Mermaid is a green iridescent glitter

Gold Digger is a gold metallic glitter

Disco Fever is a silver metallic glitter

Helter Skelter is a purple metallic glitter

Unicorn Tears is a white iridescent glitter

The application can be a touch tricky because the formula dries quite quickly. If you’re going to buy an individual tube instead of the set, you should try to find a circular makeup sponge and a detail brush to work it in.

You can apply the glitter on thick or thin depending on how you want it to look. Personally, I find that less is more especially around your eye area it can feel a little uncomfortable if it’s on too thick and if you’re anything like me you’ll probably end up rubbing your eyes and ruining it anyway.

To apply the glitter to your skin squirt a small amount of gel onto the sponge and quickly spread it around your sponge so that none of the glitters are stacked on top of each other. Dab the sponge once on the desired area and then use the detail brush to get any pieces of glitter left on the sponge onto the skin. It can be tempting to dab a few times to get the glitter onto your face and to get rid of some of the excess gel but it dries surprisingly quickly so you need to work fast to get the glitter where you need it! When you’re finished if there are any gaps where you’d like a piece of glitter just use your detail brush to pick up and apply a single piece of glitter straight from the tube.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Moisturiser

I went on a shopping trip today, I’ve been living in Newcastle for almost a year now but I still can’t navigate my way around Eldon Square. I picked up a few cute unicorn things but I’ll blog about them in a later post. It’s only day 8 of Blogtober so there are 22 more blog posts to write!

I found the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Moisturiser at Superdrug. It’s a really good moisturiser for teenagers, young adults and anyone who suffers from oily skin and break-outs but I wouldn’t recommend it for people with dry or sensitive skin because it’s citrus. Pink grapefruit is an ingredient because it’s an antioxidant that can improve complexion and it also a lovely scent. I felt that it absorbed quickly without leaving my skin feeling greasy.  I love the holographic unicorn box but it’s a pity the bottle itself doesn’t have holographic unicorns.

Skull Makeup From Makeup Revolution

With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to buy some Halloween makeup. I found these gothic cosmetics at Superdrug, they’re all by Makeup Revolution. I will be using these pieces of makeup for my Halloween look which I’m hoping to do at Whitby Goth Weekend if I get the chance to go this year.

The lipstick is part of their Haunted Lipstick Collection in the shade Captivating Curse, it’s a black lipstick so for the best look use a black eyeliner pencil as a lipliner. I didn’t realise the first time I used it but if you roll the lipstick up there’s a skull and crossbones pattern on it which is kind of adorable… in a gothic way.

The Haunted Lights Highlighter is probably the only one I will use in my daily makeup looks, it’s a good highlighter powder, it’s not gothic colours either it’s subtle. I’ll be adding it to my daily makeup bag because it’s cuter than my current go-to which is Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid which I love but it’s bronze so it looks better on me in Summer.

The Haunted Liquid Highlighter in the shade Blood Of My Enemies is great for if you want to do gory but glittery makeup, but you should also be prepared with micellar water and exfoliator because it stains.

Bomb Cosmetics I Believe In Unicorns Bath Bomb

I found this adorable handmade soap and bath bomb at Brown’s Cosmetics in South Shields, they have an online store which ships worldwide. They also sell perfumes, makeup and gift sets. I just love how beautiful and girly they are, the I Believe In Unicorns bath blaster actually turns the bath water pink. They sell other unicorn bath bombs that I’m likely to buy soon too including the All I Want For Christmas Is U-nicorn Bath Blaster and The Last Unicorn Bath Blaster. They’re only 2 for £5 so they make great gifts or even gifts to yourself.

Bomb Cosmetics are cruelty-free and they also use bio-degradable glitters so they’re not harmful to the environment. All of the bombs and soaps contain essential oils, they don’t really have a strong scent but they’re good for your skin. If you want to see a video of the bath bomb being dropped in the water then head to my Instagram page.
