Purchased this as a glitter spray after having some difficulties using the smaller spritzer bottles of glitter and DIY methods (getting glitter to stick to people). The can is a nice-sized aerosol can filled with glitter (and I'm assuming some adhesive). I set up a plastic painters drop-cloth to make sure glitter didn't go anywhere and it kept the majority of it contained. The canister had a nice spray time and stuck to the model (body, clothing and hair). I've used gold and silver with good results -- work nicely by itself or on top of a makeup application (be sure to apply makeup first and glitter last). I did have one canister become stuck and start spewing glitter everywhere, but the other 5 had no issues whatsoever.Will continue to buy -- recommended!
