|Lit Cosmetics jars|
So couple of weeks ago I made my first order from Lit Cosmetics, i´m so exited! I have mentioned them once before in my blog, haven´t I? The company makes all kinds of make-up glitters you can dream of. You can actually choose from the 300 different colors and materials, even from the cut size and they do have a quite convenient online brochure. This is going to be a quite thorough review so bear with me :3
When I tried to decide which colors to order first (yes, I intend to get a bunch of these) I noticed that there aren´t that many swatches to be found online! Which is such a shame, because these products, I tell you, are to die for.
As I mentioned, there are few "materials" to choose from. And by "material" I mean the glitter material. They have 4 different glitters, in 4 different sizes. All of my sizes (I just realized) are size 2. But not to worry, I´ll be soon to make a new order, with more different sizes ;)
Shimmer - Which is a see trough sparkle. I hear that the neon shimmers glow under black light ;) I actually didn´t order any of these, so I don´t have an opinion about them. Next time!
Solid - Pure glitter ♥. This time I got three of these, and I´m in lllloveeeee~
Metallic - A shiny sparkles with metallic finish. These I´m also a fan of. Got also two of these, both of which work really well with darker colors. They really stand out!
Electrics - Mainly bright colors, these should also glow under black light! These are like eyeshadow dusts, but just in a bigger cut size. And way more pigmented, you`ll see.
So the four cut sizes; the smallest is 002 x002, the second 004x004, the third 008x008 and the fourth 015x015. I don´t actually get what the cut sizes are, mm?
After I placed my order, at first I got a confirmation email from them, pointing out the products that I had ordered and the price in the Canadian Dollars, of course. Then, right after that, I received another email from them! This time from Jodie Perks - the owner and the founder of the company, thanking for the order and indicating the exact time they would ship it out! How great is that? And also the email was not sent by a machine, because she wrote my name as Mary-Liis (how cute is that!) and I did write on the order "Mari-liis". I think that companies who still have time to do these simplest things such as personally respond to customers, deserve some more credit. It means that they really care about their customers.
So what was in the box? Drum-roll please.....

About the glitters; I´ve done at least one make up look with every color I received, but since I don´t want this entry to be any more picheavy than it already is, I´ve desided to divide all the looks into "Lit Series" -entries! So, for the next 7 days or so, I will be posting one look per day and a detailed pictures of the product! (hopefully I´ll have time to finish the entries on time!) :3 And I have some really exiting looks for you!
On with the review, so what else came with the Multi stack kit?

Not so hard, huh? :) This is also my first giveaway, so all comments are welcome!
- So the prize is the MiniMe Lit Kit which is shown above
- I will pick a random winner using www.random.org on the 27.11.2011

So the winner gets the prize as an early Christmas present ;) And for those still wondering - YES THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL GIVEAWAY.
