I like this product and will buy it again. You don't want the shaker-top holes too big as this will allow too much product to come out at once. (This will give an un-natural look.) You simply shake it on and then "pat" the area to disperse the fibers. They DO stay put until you wash them out!
I knew these earrings were tiny but that is exactly why I wanted them. They are perfect for 2nd holes in your ears as they don't overpower the other earrings. (this is my second pair - I lost one so these are replacements.)
