Frequently asked questions
What are Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam?
Both Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam are a delicious concoction of biodegradable cosmetic glitter and a gel-type adhesive that applies with one swipe and dries down to last the night. Glitta Whip is a concentrated fine glitter paste for high-coverage sparkle, while Glitta Jam is a chunky combination of fine, medium and large hex glitters for a gorgeous textured glitz.
What makes them better than loose glitter?
The beauty of Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam is that they are already suspended in an adhesive a.k.a. no mess, no fuss - just glittery goodness. With loose glitter, you have to worry about spilling it everywhere, applying it on top of an adhesive and cleaning up any mess along the way. With Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam you can apply it in a controlled manner, allowing you to put it exactly where you want it. Once it dries down, it’s there for the night - just make sure not to rub or knock it, as it can flake off.
Are they cruelty free?
Are they vegan?
Are they biodegradable?
Yes! All of the glitter used in our products are created using cosmetic biodegradable glitter.
What is biodegradable glitter made of?
Traditional glitter is made from a either polyester plastic or aluminium foil. The biodegradable glitter we use replaces the core polyester film used in traditional glitter with a unique and special form of cellulose from hardwoods, primarily eucalyptus sourced from responsibly managed and certified plantations operating to PEFC™. It is 90% plastic free and is proven to degrade in natural environments (biodegradability standards typically call for at least 90% of material to biodegrade within the testing period).
Where can you use them?
You can use both Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam on the face, body and hair. While use of it in general is at your own risk, we do not recommend that you use in on the eye area. Please be careful wherever you put it - make sure to do a patch test on your inner elbow before use.
How do you use them?
Using your fingers or a flat brush, apply Glitta Whip or Glitta Jam to your desired area. Always apply in thin layers to ensure that it will dry - too thick and you might be waiting around for a while. Glitta Whip is great for concentrated pops of glittery goodness and designs. Glitta Jam is great for adding texture and covering larger areas.
How do you remove them?
The key to removing any kind of glitter is not to wipe it around - Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam is no different. To remove from skin, use warm water and a flannel/wipe to re-hydrate your sparkle before wiping away bit by bit using short strokes, taking a clean side of the flannel/wipe every time. Always make sure to wipe away from the eye area. If all else fails, take a shower! To remove from hair, start by brushing it out if you can (over a sink/bin) and then wash out.
How long are their shelf life?
Glitta Whip and Glitta Jam has a shelf life of 4 months. Make sure to keep them in a dry, cool environment out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources. Always close the lid tightly to prevent your Glitta product from drying out.
My Glitta Whip/Glitta Jam has dried out. What can I do?
Before trying to add anything to re-hydrate your product, make sure to give it a good stir. If it’s still too dry to apply properly, you can add a teeny bit of aloe vera gel or saline solution to re-hydrate your product. Please note that this may effect the original staying-power of your product.
