A variety of lovely color-shifting, solvent-resistant, holographic glitters!
The US FDA has determined that glitter is a color additive which is not listed on their list of approved color additives. This means that a glitter product is not allowed for use in any cosmetic in the USA. Consumers have expressed confusion over this, as it is obvious that there is glitter in all kinds of cosmetics sold currently in the USA and there are no known reports of harm caused by glitter.
The FDA has not explained itself to our company, but it has advised us that it recognizes that the cosmetics industry has been largely unaware of this determination and it is essentially providing the cosmetic industry a grace period during which FDA enforcement is "discretionary". This grace period allows the cosmetics industry to "respond". The FDA has not provided us with any information on how long this grace period has been in effect, nor how long it will be in effect. They simply state the the issue is "active".

I think they are a perfect size. I use them for makeup like eyeshadow, eyeliner, body glitter and highlighters. So for me the size of the cut is perfect. If they were cut any bigger I probably would not be able to use them in my cosmetics. They go so well with my pressed eyeshadows and work perfectly for a liquid eyeliner. I got these the first time in all sample size and realized I should have went a head and got the 1 ounce bag or bigger. They are on my next shopping list with TKB. I just wanted to review them and let TKB now not everyone is unhappy with this size cut because I love it and don't want to see it go anytime soon!
I loved these glitters but i agree with all the comments, they were really good with the older size. I, however, am not complaining. I think they are both great.
Please Please Please Bring the Old Size Back!! This new size Does not NEARLY show the Beautiful Color or Reflects as the old size did..The old size MAGNIFIED and Captured EVERY SINGLE LIGHT and Spectacular color! This new size Completely DULLS the Glimmer and Glam out of ALL the Glitter! I BEG of you to bring back the old size and so do ALL of my customers!
These appear to be .008 size HEX-cut glitters, which is great because that is what I wanted. TKB, please list the actual size for your glitters whenever possible instead of just hinting with fine/medium/large/etc - thanks!! Also noting whether they are cut hex or square would be helpful... It makes it so much easier to shop. Anyway, all of these colors are gorgeous with a great holographic rainbow effect. I really hope TKB continues to add more to this line! TKB Responds: Yes Ma'am.
You guys are doing great. Althought you can't make everyone happy. At least you TRY! Thank you for continued excellent service. -Danette TKB Responds: Thanks Sweetie, always nice to hear!
Love this glitter, but like someone already posted the slightly bigger size was the best! TKB Responds: Noted. We are working on elbowing in more "pick bins" so we can offer more variety. Thanks for your patience!
While these colors are great the larger particle size was the BEST! The fine glitters are Ok but they just don't catch the light the way the original ones did ... I re-ordered not knowing these were re-cut to a more fine size ... I should have read the fine print, LOL ... Still OK, but PLEASE bring back the older size :) TKB Responds: Sigh. Make one person happy, disappoint another. : ) OK, we will work on that. Thanks for the feedback!
