Interesting holographic shift, great in nail polish.
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".

Can I use the HOLOGRAPHIC GLITTER, MICROFINE in lipgloss will I feel terrible glitter and should I buy 4.oz
I believe that it will not feel gritty and you will like it. You don't need much though. 4 oz is a lot of product. Why not start with 1 ounce?
Would this work for pressed shadows
Pretty much any pigment can be pressed into a cake that would then be used as a color for cosmetics, including this one. However there are reasons you would not want to. The short list would be: a) It is a plastic glitter which is not FDA permitted for cosmetic use b) It will tend to have a lot of fall out in a typical pressed powder formula and you'd probably prefer a glitter base formula (we are working on creating one). On the plus side for this product, the micron size is small enough that it would be considered OK for use around the eyes.
Can I add this microfine holographic glitter to gel polish that requires a LED light to harden?
It works in regular nail polish so it might work in gel polish, you would need to test it.
