All That Glitters: 10 Sparkly Cosmetic Products

Bored with your makeup routine? Try mixing in some glitter to make your skin sparkle and your features pop. These 10 products range in effect from starry-night-on-the-town twinkle to a more understated, daytime glow. Whether you're going for a subtle radiance or a vivacious va-va-va-voom, there's no reason not to shine.

Power Metal

1 / 10

Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Liner, which comes in an array of radiant hues, is a versatile product for making bright eyes brilliant. Tone it down by using the top of the thin brush for precise highlights, or crank it up by sweeping the side of the brush for a completely bedazzled look. ($18, Sephora.com)

Walk on the Wild Side

2 / 10

The double-ended wand of Benefit’s Prrrowl mascara and lip gloss offers both iridescent peacock-blue lashes and pearly pink lips. Wear only the gloss for a soft glow, or add the mascara for a fierce blaze. ($28, BenefitCosmetics.com)

Superhero Sparkle

3 / 10

Unleash your inner heroine with MAC’s Wonder Woman Reflects Glitter in two multidimensional tones. Make this limited-edition body glitter a legendary part of your party-preening routine, or simply add a little sparkle any time you need to feel invincible. ($21, Bloomingdales.com)

Provocative Pucker

4 / 10

For sheer lip color that dazzles, try Victoria’s Secret’s Sparkling Lipstick in six sparkling shades. Top with gloss to glam it up at night, or wear alone during the day to add dimension to lips. ($12, VictoriasSecret.com)

The Glitterazi

5 / 10

If you think all that glitters is gold, try Sephora Collection Glitter Spray in silver for body and hair. Spray lightly over shoulders for a teasing twinkle, or go all-out glam with a total frosted look. ($5, Sephora.com)

Pink Passion

6 / 10

NARS Orgasm Multiple Stick in pink adds a shimmer to the eyes, cheeks, lips, décolletage, and wherever else you need some extra glow. The lightweight, creamy formula blends well into skin for a subtle, radiant look. ($39, Sephora.com)

Gold Dust Woman

7 / 10

Too Faced Glamour Dust adds ethereal sheen anywhere you apply it. The loose powder comes in four pastel hues that offer just a touch of shimmer. Try it on your eyelids (alone or atop eye shadow), cheekbones, décolletage, and even hair anytime you need to add a whisper of warmth to your look. ($17, Sephora.com)

Strike Gold

8 / 10

Make your manicure stunning by adding the Only Gold for Me Top Coat from Sephora by OPI. The golden glitter suspended in a clear top coat can stand alone for a sexy jewel-encrusted look, or it can simply add extra sparkle to your favorite nail polish. As an added bonus, the durable polish is made using only green ingredients and does not contain DBP, toluene, or formaldehyde. ($9.50, Sephora.com)

Turn Around Bright Eyes

9 / 10

Kick up your eyeliner with a dash of dazzle. To put a fierce gleam in your eyes, apply Brilliant Glitter Liquid Liner from the outside of your eye inward, making the line thickest at the outer corner and gradually thinning it as you move toward your nose. ($7, VictoriasSecret.com)

Sleek and Sexy Shine

10 / 10

Summer sundresses demand a glow that covers more than the face. Michael Kors Leg Shine glides on for sleek, sensual legs that look sun-kissed. Lightly tinted to even out imperfections and lushly scented, this easy-to-apply product leaves bare legs chic and healthy-looking. ($32, Sephora.com)
