Happy Boxing Day! With the holidays upon us, we have to make sure we’re ready in every sense on the word. By that I mean, what are the holidays if there is no fun and glitter?! Everyone can enjoy a little glitter, from women to children. Below I have put together my favourite glitter products that will get you insanely beautiful and add a ton of fun to this holiday season!

Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette – Bold GlitterSmashbox 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.

Iconic London Illuminator Drops

These drops are the most shimmery and dazzling drops around. They will make you shine and sparkle. Add them to your concealer, foundation, primer, or you can simply use them alone. Warning: each drop is highly pigmented so use a little at a time to create the perfect look. Read my full review here

Num Noms Glitter Lipgloss Truck

Num Noms Glitter Lipgloss Truck

This make your own glitter truck is the cutest gift for any makeup obsessed girl. I know that I would have loved this when I was a kid. The truck comes with one lipgloss base, 2 flavours (Cotton Candy and Birthday Cake), 1 glitter sprinkles, 1 mixing bowl with a spatula and 3 lip gloss containers. If your child has ever dreamed of making makeup, this is the chance for it to become a reality with this adorable Glitter Lipgloss Truck.

Go Get Glitter Chunky Glitter Set Mermaid Vibes

Chunky Glitter Set Mermaid Vibes

I love this chunky glitter set! What makes it better than others is that it comes in a set with other colours included and most importantly it comes with glue. It so annoying when you buy something and then realise you have to buy a second part which you haven’t bought. Luckily that won’t happen because the glue is included. If you want glitter, this is serious glitter. You can use each colour alone, or why not be creative and mix them up a bit? 

Chunky Glitter Set Mermaid Vibes can be bought from for £17.49

NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer

The NYX Professional Makeup Glitter Primer is perfect for those who are looking for a cheap yet good product. It’s a primer which double’s up as glitter. After applying the primer, apply your foundation and you will see the glitter shine through from the primer. The look is subtle yet powerful. The fun part about this primer is that it can be used on the lips and body too and all for the price of £8. A winner product, the perfect present for your friends.

    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!

    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.

    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

      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:)

    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! 😉
