Y2K makeup is back in a big way, and that includes all forms of glitter, shimmer and sparkle. We rounded up the glitziest beauty gifts for the magpie in your life — or for treating yourself to something shiny and new. Keep reading for the best glimmering cream shadows, luminizing lip glosses and disco ball-inspired nail polishes to shop this holiday season.
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner
Add a streak of sparkle to a basic black wing or coat your lids in glitter with this high-intensity liner. The glitter pigments are suspended in a clear base, so they make the perfect topper to any eyeshadow shade.
NYX Professional Makeup Gimme Super Stars! Plumping Lip Topper
For blinding shine, look no further than this dazzling lip topper from NYX. It comes in three shades that give us major early 2000s vibes, including a holographic pearl, toasty bronze and frosted berry.
Valentino Beauty Dreamdust Glitter Eyeshadow
These reflective cream shadows pop just as much as the luxe red and gold pots they’re encased in. For maximum shimmer, we recommend packing this shadow on with your finger or a flat, synthetic eyeshadow brush.
Few nail colors are as fun as this multifaceted pink glitter from Essie. The chip-resistant formula is perfect for both an accent nail or on every finger for a full-on mirrorball manicure.
Maybelline New York Lip Lifter Gloss with Hyaluronic Acid
Slick on this gloss for instantly plumped up, juicy lips. The hyaluronic acid-infused formula attracts moisture and glides on smooth, rather than sticky. We love the shades Moon, Topaz and Crystal, which are flecked with iridescent glitter.
Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner
For a subtle pop of sparkle, add a swipe of this long-wearing gel pencil to your lash line. The creamy, waterproof formula stays smudge-, flake- and transfer-resistant for up to 24 hours.
YSL Beauty Sequin Crush Mono Eyeshadow
Rich, jewel-toned shades make for the perfect holiday party eye makeup look. Use each shade solo for a bold, monochromatic look or layer them for a rich, multidimensional finish.
Light up your entire face from lips to lids with this cruelty-free highlighter. The chubby stick format makes it easy to target your glitter application and avoid getting sparkles everywhere.
Patrick Ta Major Glow Body Oil
Achieve all over luminosity with this sweetly scented body oil. Available in three illuminating shades for fair to dark skin tones, it contains vitamin E, olive oil and squalane for a boost of moisture.
