5 Glitter-tastic Makeup Products that are Lit AF

14 August 2017 | MJ Mendoza

Glitter brings nostalgia to a lot of people, especially those who were born in the 90s and early 2000s; it covered our whole beings like butter on a cob of corn. From clear lip gloss to your lids, lips, and even your roots, it was the epitome of the 90s to have it smeared all over your body. Now that it's back in trend, you need to make the most out of these sparkly accessories!

Working with glitter, especially on makeup, can be a little bit tricky. Of course, you don't want to look like a 9-year-old playing with makeup for the first time (just like what you did in primary school). You would want to slay and glow like the Milky Way! To do that, here are some great glitter makeup products that every makeup lover should have in their beauty bag.

Urban Decay Vice Special Effects Long-Lasting Water-Resistant Lip

The awful thing about using glitter as makeup is that it can be a little chunky, especially on the lips. With this Urban Decay glitter top coat, you can seamlessly glow and transform from a casual day look to a ravishing glitter goddess. It comes in 12 shades and a variety of finishes including shimmer, glitter, and metallic. It's definitely Instagram-worthy!

Milk Cosmetics Glitter Stick Pride Edition

Milk is very well-known for creating blinding makeup so it is no surprise that this made it into our list. This all-purpose highlighter gives you dewey and glowing skin. Ideal for your inner corners, your cheeks, brow bone, and chin, it will bring out your features in the most glittery way possible. It is also vegan and cruelty-free!

3CE Pot Eyeshadow

The lids are the most effective ways to rock glitter makeup. The problem is, fallout is a very common problem when dealing with glitter. Thankfully, 3CE has a Glitter Pot Eyeshadow that blends seamlessly to your eye primer and doesn't fall out thanks to its cream formula. In addition to being awesome, it is also super affordable!

Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in Poe

When it comes to artistry, Kat Von D never fails to put out some of the best products and among her best collections is her Studded Lipstick line. While she came out with a dazzling array of shades, Poe is one that would certainly catch your eye. This dark navy lipstick has violet and blue flecks and an all-day formula that would embody your mysterious (but glittery) side.

Marc Jacobs Lamé Noir Ultra-Glittering Mascara

Yes, yes, glitter eyeshadow is now in but what about glitter mascara? Make your eyes pop with this one-of-a-kind mascara that would volumize your lashes and at the same time coat them with dazzling micro-glitter in gold. Bat your eyelashes and leave your haters shook.

A fair warning for those who are attempting to create a glitter-tastic look with these products: moderation is key. We know you want to look like glamour goddess but there's a fine line between that and looking like a scrapbook. Of course, don't forget to finish your look with a makeup setting spray like ones below.
