Pressed glitter is 100% cosmetic glitter mixed with a binding solution that is then poured and pressed into cosmetic tin pans. Traditionally, to apply cosmetic glitter to the skin a separate binding solution has to be used. North Star Glitters has combined the two steps into one, reducing cost and application frustration. North Star Glitters pressed glitters are soft and silky to the touch and will not result in a mess at your make-up counter.
North Star Glitters™ offers pressed glitters in three types of cosmetic glitter.
The first is “metallic glitter”. 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.
The second kind of glitter is “holographic glitter”. Holographic glitter is opaque with a multi-color shift. Holographic glitters also deliver deep color but also have a rainbow shimmering effect. As the holographic glitter catches light it reflects not only it’s own color, but a prism of rainbow accents.
Lastly, we carry “iridescent glitter”. 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!
Be creative, have fun – while each glitter is different they all play well together!
