These things suck:
POP Beauty Sparkle Sauce
Givenchy Prismissime Eyes Arty Palette 53.
The former is a somewhat useless product. It's doesn't add any golden sparkle on its own, just very subtle (nearly invisible) shimmer. When mixed with shadow or pigment, it causes the shadow/pigment to flake off in chunks and make your eyes look diseased. When patted over the top of eyeshadow or eyeliner, it removes the eyeshadow causing a weird messy smeary half-applied look. I haven't tried it with glitter, but that's only because I don't currently possess any loose glitter. I don't see it working very well, as demonstrated by the flaking problem with pigment.
The latter is an utter waste of $52 dollars. It's incredibly tiny, about the size of half an Altoids tin, or about the size of a NARS compact. The shadows look very pretty inside the palette, but they are utter crap. They're the sheerest, chalkiest crap, almost as bad as the Tarte Onyx palette. I could not even get enough pigment on to even be noticable. I can't believe how bad this is, and how much they charge for it! It makes a nice decoration, but if you actually want to use the shadows, you're screwed. I am shocked at how bad this is.
