Today’s review is going to focus on some really cool glow in the dark powders that I got from Born Pretty Store. They’re not much to look at in the container, but they pack a punch once they’re applied!
Born Pretty ships the set of 6 powders in a plastic baggie. The photo on the left shows the undersides of the containers while the photo on the right shows the top view. Each jar is “sealed for your protection” just like a bottle of vitamins. This keeps the powder from leaking out.
These little containers have screw on tops, and they can get messy, so it is advised that you work over a sheet of paper or a paper towel for easy clean up. Also, the powder is very fine, so if you are sensitive to dust, wearing a mask while you work with this product is recommended.
The website claims that there are 2 grams of powder in each container, but from my previous experience, 2 grams usually fills up this size jar completely. Either the powder is very dense, or the website is making up some stats because these jars were just a little over half full, and some colors appeared to have slightly more or less powder inside than other ones. However, if you consider that you are getting 6 colors here for a very affordable price, this is hardly an issue.
There isn’t any branding on the containers, so you have to come up with your own system for how to identify the powder colors for later unless you want to have to turn off the lights first every time you want to use them! As you can see, the powder itself mostly looks like various shades of white with the greenish colors giving off a slightly yellow tint. I chose to label each container with a numbered sticker on the bottom so I can keep track of the colors in my tutorials, but it also so you can see how they swatch.
These powders don’t look like much of anything in normal light but are surprisingly bright once the lights are turned off! To be honest, 2 is more of a purple color than it appears here in the photograph, but you basically get 4 blue toned shades and two yellow-green shades in this set. 3 is slightly lighter than 1, and 4 is slightly lighter than 5.
