I think little girls are soo cute when thier like in 4th and 5th grade, and they apply glittler about 5 times a day. I was deffinately like that when I was that age, lol. We used to make our own body glitter, and we would play like salon and give each other glitter make-overs for like a dime each, lol. I remember those days. I wish I could still be considered cool while wearing a kool-Aide mustache and polka-dotted leggins.

I wore alot of glitter on my face in 7th grade.
Until, one day, the tubby-thingy of glitter exploded in my face, in my mom's car.
We, to this day, are still cleaning the glitter out of that car.
I only recently bought glitter again...

I've seen this shimmer body lotion that does the same thing and looks great for larger areas. I've never really been into glitter though.

I'm not a glitter person, and I never have been. I've had eyeshadows with teensy bits of glitter in them but nothing more. The few times I've worn it - against my will - it's ended up EVERYWHERE. Just last night I was on a shoot in which the makeup artists slathered my face in gold glitter, and today it's all over every single thing I've touched, and even after an hour of scrubbing my face raw with makeup remover it's still stuck around my eyes in clumps of sparkling gold ickiness .

Gah, I hate glitter!
I'm a very huggable person, so anytime a friend is wearing glitter, it's easily shown against all the black.
And that glitter in the cheeks...
Why do you do that?
I don't know how is it in other countries, but over here, we say hi with a kiss on the cheek, so... yeah... I don't like the glitter.

Yeah, glitter on the cheeks just plain annoys me. And when people have been sweating at all it tends to look a bit like fish scales which unless the person in question is actually a fish, isn't too attractive.

Over Christmas in the USA the Body Shop has a cranberry scent range of products. The body lotion has a very faint shimmer to it that is really pretty.

The other way that I use glitter is when I spike up my hair for clubbing, etc. I spray the tips (just the very tip of a section) with a lot of hairspray and then dip them into a tub of glitter to coat the section tip. It looks very dramatic and isn't an everyday sort of thing... it looks great in dark lit clubs, though.

I prefer not to wear body glitter. If I'm wearing something with sparkle, it'll be discreetly glittering black sequins on a choker, or a shining red and silver necklace complimenting my black velvets.
That said, just a touch of glitter around the eyes (silver is best, as it works with anything) can look very good when applied properly and matched to a style of makeup that suits glitter. Random glitter is unwise, as it copious glitter unless you're going for the 'Party Monster' look.

I like glitter, but normally just when I go clubbing or to a party. Once, my friend "colored" in my back tattoo (which is a black spiral design) with red and silver glitter, and that looked cool. Of course, it got all over the car on the way to the club

My mom was very strict when I was younger, so I didn't indulge in the glitter until college. She called me a hooker for wearing long earrings once, if that gives you any indication! So, alas, I had no fashion faux pas with the glitter as a child.

I only really wear glitter for parties because it gets everywhere but I love it! My favourite is blue, green or silver glitter eyeshadow. I also used to have this red shimmering lipstick which I loved, but I lost it. My ex wears silver glitter in his (black) hair, which I must say looks amazing.

I love glitter. It has to be ultra fine and pink/silver/white is my favorite because it blends well with my skin tone. I only used darker glitters in my hair.

I love glitter, I have a glitter hairspray and glitter eye shadow which I really love to wear if I feel like adding some glam to my goth look. I don't wear it all the time because the charm sort of goes... Though nothing wrong with glitter!
