Not knowing what it is or where its from my best guess would be when you get to that point try it and see.  Other's here have reported poor results using craft store glitter, but you may have gotten lucky  Fortunately it will only take you one or two baits to know how it works for you.

Yeah, craft store glitter tends to curl, bleed, and fade when heated. Personally, I wouldn't use it if that's where it came from.

This is what it looks like:

If it's metal it may be a problem in a microwave.   Ask the manuf. if it's microwave safe.

Most of the glitters I see on plastisol suppliers websites are polyester.

Nailed it.  If it doesn't say polyester, I wouldn't use it.

Add it after you have your colored plastic heated & ready to go. I have had some craft store glitter that done fine doing it this way. I also have had some that when i added the glitter it was red, but when demolding it was gold. Buying the right stuff to begin with is the best, but you aren't risking a microwave fire by adding it after heating to see if it will work & you can come up with some different looking baits easily too. I will say though that i haven't used anything, but lureworks glitter or colorant in quite a while too. .
