Festival Glitter is the official online glitter shop for MUOBU (Make Up or Break Up!), which launched in the world famous emporium of eclecticism Afflecks Manchester, in December 2014.
Located on the second floor, we started off small, stocking a small range of affordable cosmetics and glitter. Within 6 months we had to double the size of our shop, due to the high demand for our products.
Our own brand cosmetic glitter was flying off the shelves! In less than a year our range had grown to over 140 different colours and styles. Everything from fine glitters, to our exclusive chunky festival mixes we make ourselves, to UV glitters than glow at clubs and festivals.
We started to become so well known for our cosmetic glitters that people started flocking to our shop and we soon picked up a loyal following of customers. Every time the RuPaul's Drag Race stars were in town, they'd stop by to stock up. We've served everyone from Bianca Del Rio to Sharon Needles.
We then started to get begged to sell our glitter online. If you lived or were visiting Manchester it was easy to get our glitter. But if you lived further away, people complained they just couldn't get the choice we offered, at our prices.
That's when we decided to launch this website - www.festivalglitter.co.uk. We spent long days and nights photographing all our glitter. We wanted to make sure the picture you saw online was exactly the same as the glitter you received through the post. There's nothing more annoying than something arriving through the post that looks different, is there!
We do what no other glitter website does - let you see all the shades of 1 colour side by side with our 'Choose By Colour' option, so you can be sure you get the exact shade you want. We even designed out glitter pots so that they're exactly the right height for a Royal Mail large letter. This means we can keep our postage costs down, so offer you free shipping if you order at least 4 pots. And the package will fit through your letterbox, so you don't need to wait in for the postman.
After a lot of hard work, the website went live and we sat back and waited. Hundreds of orders came flooding in in the first week and we haven't looked back. Festival Glitter was well and truly launched.
With new styles and colours being launched every couple of months, we remain committed to offering you the latest on trend glitter styles at prices that won't make your eyes water!
