Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette – Bold Glitter

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette - Bold Glitter

The Bold Glitter palette has 8 shades of brilliant, shimmering hues. The colours are highly pigmented and extremely creamy which makes them really easy to blend. You can wear the colours with other shadows or you can wear them alone for a most vibrant look.

Elf Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter

Elf Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter

The Halo Glow Liquid Filter is a skincare x makeup hybrid infused with skin-loving ingredients designed to give you the ultimate shimmery and glowing skin!

It’s an especially exciting product for more than one reason. It’s a dupe of the bestselling Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, which is nearly always sold out.

Aside from spending a fraction of the price, you’ll also have a product that will hopefully be in stock more often that the Flawless Filter!

The Halo Glow Liquid Filter is available in 8 glowing and shimmering shades and can be worn in 4 ways to give you a soft-focus, dewy and glowing skin. The shades are universal, each one works on multiple skin tones.

Made with squalene to moisturize the skin, hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and the finely milled powders blur lines and pores for smoother-looking skin! It applies smoothly and blends easily!

Wear it alone, wear it over or under your makeup, mix it with your foundation or use it as you would use a highlighter. Whichever way you choose to use it, be prepared for stunning shimmery skin!

  1. Thank you so much for this article. My daughter is absolutely in love with make up and I know for a fact she’ll love the Num Noms make up truck. She doesn’t have much experience with lip gloss because she’s more focused on lip stick, however, I’m sure she’ll love lip gloss once she starts using it more. Thanks for a great review, will be back for more!

    1. I’m sure she will love it:)

    Thank you for sharing with us such a fantastic post on make up.I like reading about makeup because I love putting make up on my face to look beautiful.

    Many people in my village don’t like makeup and when I put them on they look at me as a stranger hhh.But I never fail to love it because it is my choice.

    I like this Stila Liquid Eyeshadow – Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow and I will order one.

    1. It’s true, its your choice and good for you to continue doing what you love!

  3. Interesting read, Hollie. Thank you for putting this together. I LOVE glitter. I am however also very health-conscious and was wondering which of these products use natural colours instead of the usual chemicals. I did not care that much when I was in my teens and early twenties, but now, in my mid-forties, I really take care of what I put on my skin/eyes/lips… so having your recommendations on this would be really helpful. Thanks a lot in advance! Nathalie 

    1. Hi Nathalie,

      I am soon posting an article on natural and vegan makeup brands so stay tuned! 

      Being healthy is super important and like you, as I get older I am becoming more aware of staying healthy.  

      Have a lovely day:)

  4. Hello Hollie,

    thanks for such informative and descriptive article, I’ve found it to be very helpful and it came just in time as I am looking for some practical and unique gifts for my girlfriend at the moment. The one product which stood out for me the most was NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer and Stila Liquid Eyeshadow – Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow, as I think glitter makeup looks really awesome & unique especially at parties & festivals, and we attend them quite often. And she likes them too as far as I am concerned (well I saw her use it few times, so I would assume so). What I like about this glitter makeup is that it gives girls this articstic and expressive look with some emotional and imaginative touch to it. And like You’ve mentioned, Eyeshadow comes with 8 sensational colours, therefore it opens up the doors for numerous possibilities and combinations for new stylish ideas & looks, so a girl would never run out of them which is awesome!

    Keep up the good work Hollie and Happy New Year to You! 😉
