Lit Cosmetics is here to SPARKLE THE WORLD by offering the largest selection of glitter products sold in the market today. All products MADE IN USA. Being associated with companies like Bloomingdale’s, Sephora, Beautylish, Cirque du Soleil, and Riley Rose proves that we are serious about quality and product performance. Through pride, passion, and persistence our aim is to put the fun & creativity back into the art of cosmetics.
Lit’s mission is to change the way people wear makeup, one sparkle at a time.
NO GLITTER NO GLORY.
The idea for Lit started in 2001 when Jodie Perks was slinging drinks at Calgary, Canada’s hottest nightclubs. She was always a fan of fun makeup and all things ‘bling’, but was unsatisfied with the glitter makeup products available. She knew she had to take glitter matters into her own hands.
Long hours turning into weeks, then into months of testing in her top-secret glitter dungeon, evaluating all the pros and cons, she exposed a number of flaws; the most obvious being the application process, comfort, and staying power.
With time and determination, Jodie has developed (and perfected) a collection of products and an application method that stays in place, is comfortable and keeps the brilliant glitter shine. Lit Cosmetics has grown from its bar-star roots into the go-to glitter beauty brand for celebrity make-up artists and cosmetic enthusiasts worldwide.
Why Lit is Different
“No glitter, no glory” is our motto. Fun, yet true. Lit simply specializes in glitter/loose color makeup which is known as = “glitterology” (the science of glitter). With our liquid adhesive now perfected, we have broken down our loose color into 4 different sizes and 4 different varieties.
Remember: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a single color highlighter to having a 10 shade blend over your shadows – we dare you. Let the fun begin, and your creativity soar!
WHAT IS THE VISION OF LIT COSMETICS?
Other than wanting to “glitter the world” it has always been our dream to change the way people perceive or think about glitter makeup. Our vision was to create a top-quality, sexy new makeup line unlike any other, that was fun, exciting, easy to use, and suitable for everyone. Whether it’s a day at the office or a special night out, glitter is the perfect compliment to your look. Get noticed, get confident – get Lit!
A NOTE TO CUSTOMERS
Hello fellow Lit Chicks (and we can’t forget about those Lit Dudes out there), it is now time to have fun and be creative with your makeup, accessories, and style, and to realize that girls just want to have fun (as Cyndi Lauper preached to us in the ’80s). We’ve all finally come to the realization that indeed life is way too short to be boring or to simply be bored. Don’t be one of those girls who say, “Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off.” You know who you are – break through and be bold, be beautiful!
This next bit of information may sound a little odd but it’s true: glitter is good for the soul! Something happens when you add a little glitter to your day. It gives you a smile, good energy and simply pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you, ma’am!
So give Lit Cosmetics a try and enjoy everything you get out of it. My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seriously all the time. So “Get Lit” and always remember, “No Glitter, No Glory!”
Lit Is Best
Over time, Lit Cosmetics has recognized the problems in other glitter products and has continually worked hard on perfecting our product and application process. This is why “Lit is the best”.
LIT COMPARED TO OTHER PRODUCTS
Unlike similar products, Lit Cosmetics “Daily Wear” and “Water Resistant” is Alcohol free, Paraben free, and Propylene Glycol free. We don’t test on animals and are 100% Vegan.
Our loose glitter is a high-sparkle cosmetic grade with maximum light reflection also implementing a “Rounded” glitter cut opposed to a “Square” or “Diamond” cut to aid in complete comfort on the skin surface also giving you a smooth application.
Tube (Paint On) Style Glitter
The glitter particles are very sparse therefore you cannot create a nice solid line of color like you can with Lit. Also most of these companies use a “Square” or “Diamond Cut” glitter particle which tends to be uncomfortable and catches edges on the skin surface.
A customer has to purchase a full tube of product every time they want a new color, unlike Lit’s “Clearly Liquid Glitter Base™”. Once purchased, this liquid adhesive will work with all loose colors. We set it up this way so customers can continually add to their collection without having to over purchase product.
Flaking and crusting will occur over time with most “tube style” glitters. On the other hand, Lit will stay on and keep it’s shine from morning till night even in high humidity and heightened activity-that’s why all dancers/stage performers etc. love our product!
You can’t choose your glitter size or variety-the glitter cut/size in tubes are usually too big for most patrons.
All other companies have a limited color selection – Lit offers endless varieties of sizes and shades.
The formula in the tubes always dries up and gets gooey. The brush also loses its performance over time thus having a short expiration period. Lit’s water based formulation will never go bad and our brushes are very durable.
Lit allows you to really personalize your glitter application—putting multiple colors on your eyes, adding swoops and swirls or whatever your heart desires, this is artistic freedom man!
Glitter Eye Shadows
You can’t fool us any longer; the glitter particles will always end up on your cheekbone turning your makeup application into a glitter mess!
Brighter colors tend to tint the skin around the eye area. Lit on the other hand will give you intense color (even on darker skin tones) without staining or loosing vibrancy.
Cream Based Glitter
First of all, the application process is messy and hard to control plus glitter fall out will occur. Also cream bases usually end up creasing and rubbed out, thus not showcasing the glitter properly.
You will never get a nice line of glitter. The glitter particles simply get covered by the eyeliner color and lose the shine in addition the glitter particles will detach and fall.
