What glitters are used in lip gloss? Mica is the glitter that is used in a lot of our products. It gives our Lipglass, Cremesheen, Power Pumping and Grand Illusion lip glosses, that beautiful pearlescent high shine and shimmer. Mica pigments are natural occurring minerals (purified and crushed) which range from completely matte to opalescent or sparkling.
Is it safe to put glitter in lipgloss? You can find mica powder and cosmetic grade glitter in all sorts of colors online in stores that specialize in cosmetic-making supplies. Do not use glitter from the craft store, even if it is extra-fine. It is not safe to use on your lips.
Can you use craft glitter on your lips? To help anchor glitter to your lips so you don’t just inhale it, Hatcher recommends using a base of clear lipgloss or even mixing the glitter and gloss together before applying.
Is cosmetic grade glitter safe? Cosmetic Glitters are made with special ingredients that are all non-toxic and totally safe to use on the skin. A cosmetic glitter product will have been made in facilities with exceedingly high standards of cleanliness and is designed specifically to reduce the risk of irritating skin and eyes.
