A Blitz of Glitz

You know, the last holiday of the year is around the corner and I've been contemplating what kind of bling I want to incorporate into my look (if any) for the festivities.  In lieu of the usual celebratory suspects like gold and silver, I may opt for some pretty sparkle I found during an excursion to a CCO (Cosmetic Company Outlet).   I'm still finalizing the deets, but it looks like I'll be enlisting the high-watt capacity of MAC's Glitter in Fuchsia to help me ring in the new year.

Encased in a plastic vial with a stopper and rubberized, screw on/off lid, Fuchsia glitter barely touches on pink and instead looks more like an aggressive shade of purple.  The fine flecks of sparkle can be used anywhere on the body and face, however, is not recommended for use on or around the eyes.  It can also up the ante of products like lip glosses and nail polishes by adding an extra dimension of color, texture and shine.

I'm not going to go crazy with it, but I'm thinking of using it to glitz up my lips... and/or perhaps put some in a design around my eye.  Not sure yet, though.  But I do fancy the color and am kinda excited to use it in a look.  If I come up with something interesting, I'll be sure to document it in a post.  And if my imagination proves to be less than inspired that evening and I look a hot mess, all supporting evidence will be destroyed and will never see the light of day.  Just so that you know...

Anywho, we shall see.  But in the meantime, please enjoy your New Year's Eve, be safe and I'll see you soon on the other side!

MAC Glitter Fuchsia is available at their boutiques as well as MAC's online site, and retails for $21/4.5g.


  1. i would have that this would be considered purple and not fuschia. the color is pretty regardless, i have always been hesitant to apply glitter around my eyes, my lips? fine. the eyes? not so sure. lol
    Thanks for sharing! I'm sure this will be a lovely addition to a holiday look.

    1. Yeah, I was shocked to see it labeled as "Fuchsia" since it's such a blatant purple. But that's what they wanna call it. *shrugs shoulders* I don't have a problem using glitter on my eyes, but I'm rebellious. ;0) Have a great holiday, Joanne!
