Glitter Gel's, Which is best? Liquid Bling/Facade Glitzer/Global Colours

Post by pippa79 on Tue Sep 15, 2015 3:11 pm

Hi

I am wanting to buy some glitter gel to outline my designs and wonder which of these three any of you would recommend:

Global Colours Glitter Gel
Liquid Bling
Facade Glitzer

Thanks

I am in the UK, so imagine shipping is fairly pricey

I use Suzzie Sparkles too. Everything else I tried was bunk.

Suzzie Sparkles has the BEST tips, and a lovely consistency that dries fast and comes out fast. The learning curve is low, and the result is always good.

I live in Canada and after reading the reviews, i threw down for the extra shipping costs. Totally worth it.

Actually we ship first class to Canada and the UK so it can be reasonable.

Suzy Sparkles is the very best glitter gel.
I have tried them all.
Platinum is my go-to colour.
Red at Christmas, for holiday berries.
Maybe you can share an order with another face painter.

I have Suzy Sparkles, and a Mehron one. I like the Suzy Sparkles better.

Shipping to Canada IS more expensive, because of the customs fees. Government wants their taxes even if you shop outside the country. Also with the current low Loonie (our nick name for a dollar), it's even more expensive because you have to pay in US Dollars as every Canadian Dollar is only worth 0.72 cents American (as of today), then international shipping, plus duty tax. So yes "first class shipping" aside, it's still way more expensive. I only shop the US face paint supply sites now if I can't get it from HokeyPokeyShop.ca :/

Artyfacesbyluz the Artmaster pearl brushes remarkably resemble the Simply Simmons brand of brushes. Could they be the same manufacturer?

They look alike outside but they are not the same, the bristles in the Simply Simmons are harder, less flexible and they separate with use, the only thing I don't like about the Artmaster's is they are very pointy (which helps you make a crispy lines) but you can't make dots, I still like the Lower Cornell yellow brushes over all.
