Imagine if you had an open container of glitter, mentally strip out all the sparkle and you basically have tiny flakes or bits of colored plastic that are all the same size. That's what this is. I think the only way anyone would know it's named glitter is by being told that it's not odd sand or sandpaper. I read the reviews so I'm not disappointed I just want to make sure people know you are not getting a glitter substitute.
So, what good is this paper? It's perfect background paper if you need bright yet understated texture. This can also be for gold-like accents such as photo mats -- a layer of gloss medium would increase the ritz factor. In a pinch it could stand-in for funky sand for aquariums and beaches, but I'd put an acrylic wash on it to drop back the brightness. All that said this is not a stash paper or collage fodder. This is a buy for a particular reason and probably not keep the scraps.
This review applies to the silver version of this paper as well. Different color but the same problems.
