I tried this dry initially to get a feel for how it looked that way. except, it didn't work at all. the color's just not there, though if you'd like sheer glitter on your eyelids I guess this would be great for that. I've tried it wet multiple times now, and each time once it's dry (because you have to put so much on to get any color), it gets powdery and kinda gross looking from a texture standpoint.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
