I received these from Nordie's.com and upon opening the box, i was dazzled. This comes with a pink and black cardboard/plastic like container and a pink puff inside, then you have larger than average meteorites under the puff. Upon pulling the puff out of the container, there was a bit of powder from the balls that had collected in it, and a cloud of powder ensued. I apply these meteorites to the face using a fluffy blush brush and I do not get glitter: i get a subtle shimmer. But I also make sure to tap the brush off before applying as these are very powdery and softer than the permanent line of meteorites. These give me a youthful glow and I love them!! Very happy with my purchase.
