What Specialty Glass Products are

What comes to your mind when you hear the word 'glass'? You probably think of windows, smartphones, tableware, and many other glass products around you. Actually, glass is much more versatile and ubiquitous. Although it may be out of sight or less conspicuous, glass plays a very important role in many aspects of our lives. In this article, we would like to showcase Specialty Glass Products, which are the front-runner of materials indispensable among NSG's glass products. Please enjoy the passion of manufacturers and the fascinating world of original products.


Have you noticed eye shadow, lipstick or foundation that shine brilliantly like pearls? In fact, glass powder is used in these cosmetics. In other words, the objects that give the appearance of beautifully shining pearls are ultra-fine flake-shaped glass. NSG offers a broad line-up of glass products as raw materials for cosmetics. Here, we highlight METASHINE®, inorganic pearl pigments for use in point make-up products such as eye shadow, lipstick and nail polish, and MAR'VINA, glass powder for use in base make-up products such as foundation, primer, and face powder.

METASHINE®, inorganic pearl pigments for use in point make-up cosmetics

The eye make-up and lip make-up for pearlescent lustre or lame-like metallic sheen are popular these days. The splendour of shimmering glow, which is characteristic at the forefront of current trends in make-up, is partly enabled by NSG's METASHINE®. Sharp brilliance and unclouded colour obtained with glass flakes is unrivalled by any other pearlescent materials. METASHINE® is highly valued for these unique attributes in the world of point make-up and used in many cosmetics products that you see.

METASHINE® is produced using NSG's proprietary technology to coat the surface of flake-shaped glass substrate with metal or metal oxide. The smooth and transparent surface of glass allows for strong light reflection and clear colours. Moreover, by applying different types of coating materials and adjusting the size of glass substrate, it is possible to produce pearlescent materials in diverse colours and radiance. With its limitless potential, METASHINE® is sure to adorn the new world of point make-up.
