If you want a proper glittery look that won't fall halfway down your cheeks during the evening, you need this. You can use something like the Stargazer cosmetic glitters or Lit glitters (more expensive but no better if you ask me...) - use a craft brush or a silicone glitter applicator rather than a naice makeup brush as it's hard to get all the glitter out afterwards.
Be careful with the products that aren't eye safe, such as some types of glitter.
I bought a Laura Mercier Eye Glacé in Wet Sand the other day and it's lovely - it is very sparkly, can be worn on top of other eye shadows and lasts very well. It also doesn't have any fallout when applying or during the time it's worn - it lasts all day on me.
It can be sheered out so it's just sparkle/glitter or built up so it's more opaque metallic with the sparkle/glitter.
