If this is your first time buying Pixie Epoxy, please read the description and directions below before purchasing.
Pixie Epoxy was the world's first cosmetic sparkle adhesive ("glitter glue")! This is not a primer, and is not intended for eyeshadows without sparkle.
Originally developed and formulated in 2007, this unique "glue" is designed to hold the most sparkly eye shadows of any brand in place hours longer, and minimize sparkle fallout. It's easily washed off, and while keeps shadows in a water-resistant state, the product itself is water-soluble (no silicones or oils). This product is not a requirement under any of our shadows, but it will help to keep your finished high-sparkle look tidy for hours.
Packaged in a lipgloss tube with a doefoot wand, all you need is a tiny amount rubbed on with fingertip over your usual primer. Avoid direct application with the wand. As the Epoxy should still be damp, apply shadow quickly after. More Epoxy may be desired for very glittery products, and for easier blending, just apply a little more shadow or dilute a dab of the product first (on a separate clean surface) by mixing a drop of water in. This product also enables the shadow to be brushed on rather than patted. Translucent in the tube, applies and dries completely clear. May make some shades appear darker, and isn't intended to work with mattes or shimmery shades (but it's not needed), and may ruin their colors depending on ingredients. To help prevent creasing, use an actual shadow primer under this product. Pixie Epoxy is safe to use under eyeliner, but not recommended for application directly on the waterline. Our customers use this under pressed eye shadow as well as loose. Can also be used to safely adhere glitter to lips or face.
10 ml tube, which holds approximately 9ml of product. This style of container is used because it's easy to keep clean: just rinse off the wand (and wipe down top of tube as needed), dry, and replace cap, or wipe with alcohol and dry. Please limit 3 tubes per person.
