We promise that your North Star Glitters experience will be one filled with sparkle, love, and joy!
BEHIND THE SPARKLE
As the “glitter queen” at North Star Glitters I know my glitter. Like most young girls I craved to have anything that sparkled. If it was covered in glitter I had to have it. The love of shiny things never left me and grew to me exploring with glitter in my makeup, hair, and even incorporating it into my work.
I left my career in education to stay at home with my small 2 boys (who also love glitter). One evening the curious four-year-old found himself in a glitter mess at the bathroom counter and I found myself saying, “There has to be a better way to use glitter.” So out of a want for a more efficient glitter makeup and a need to keep my bathroom tidy, came the creation of North Star Glitters: one-step, no-mess glitter cosmetics.
We work to bring you premium cosmetic glitters that not only look amazing but perform well and are easy to use. North Star Glitters has given me the chance to turn my love of glitter into a career and connect with glitter lovers all over the world. These glitter lovers have proven to me that a little sparkle goes a long way.

Types of Glitter
North Star Glitters™ offers pressed glitters in three types of cosmetic glitter. (Download color chart)
Metallic glitter is an opaque single color with no shift. Metallic glitters will have the deepest color pigment and intense metallic shine. You can also create a foiling effect with metallic glitter when the glitter particles are rubbed together.
Iridescent glitter is translucent with a multi-color shift. While they may appear to have deep color in their compact, when applied to the skin they become translucent. These iridescent glitters create a delightful shimmering effect on the skin capturing a multitude of colors in the light. Iridescent glitters also work well on top of metallic glitters, giving your extra sparkle!
UV reactive glitter glows when exposed to black light! In natural light, our UV reactive glitters act like an iridescent glitter with a translucent shimmering appearance on the skin. But turn off the lights and show it off in black light because this glitter will glow bright with intensity.
Be creative, have fun – while each glitter is different they all play well together!
“When April showed me some of the early test batches of her pressed glitter, I was extremely skeptical. I have tried similar products and I found them to be unpleasantly sticky with poor glitter payoff. I didn’t really see the point until I tried North Star Glitters. I swiped it on my arm and thought, “Oh, I get it now. This is what those other products were trying to be.” I can’t think of a reason to ever go back to loose glitters.”
