In our newest column, V is rounding up our favorite anti-everyday beauty looks to encourage our readers to experiment and express themselves. From neon eyeshadow to iridescent highlight, impractical makeup has become the trend of the summer. Gen Z has paved the way for these trends, but people of all ages should be able to wear what makes them feel powerful. In our first edition, we've compiled the best glitter products to add a little bit of shine to your life.

  • The “Duh” Purchase

Pat McGrath Labs

Eye Ecstasy: Eye Shadow Palette Mini in Subversive

PAT MCGRATH LABS Eye Ecstasy: Eye Shadow Palette in Subversive.

Pat McGrath has broken barriers for her revolutionary makeup line, even landing on the Time 100 Most Influential People list for her work in cosmetics. Naturally, if you’re looking to add some shimmer to your eyelid and are committed to quality, look no further than Pat McGrath. Her new mini palette provides the perfect starting point to experimenting with bold colors without breaking your bank.

  • The Cult Classic

Milk Makeup

Holographic Stick in Stardust

Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Stardust.

For a buildable look that won’t get glitter all over your clothes, look no further than MILK’s classic Holographic Stick. The versatile stick can be a highlighter, eyeshadow, or shimmery blush—you can really put it just about anywhere. We like the rosey Stardust color, because everyone needs more pink in their life. 

  • The Special Occasion

MARC JACOBS

See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow in Smash Glitz Holiday 2019 Edition

Marc Jacobs See-quins Glam Glitter Eyeshadow in Smash Glitz Holiday 2019 Edition

Marc Jacobs’ newest eyeshadow line has all of the shine you need to impress your friends and shock your family this holiday season. Whether you’re hoeing it up at the office Christmas party or trying to land a date for cuffing season, this high-pigment shadow will make the right impression. 

  • The Wild Card

Trixie Cosmetics

Sprinkles in Melon Baller

Trixie Cosmetics Sprinkles in Melon Baller.

Trixie Mattel of RuPaul’s Drag Race fame has launched her own cosmetics line, and half her products are already on backorder. Melon Baller is worth the wait, as a playful, chunkier addition to your growing glitter collection. With colors like that, you’ll find a reason to wear it every day.

  • The Gamechanger

Lemonhead LA

Phantom Spacepaste

Lemonhead LA Phantom Spacepaste

You can’t mention glitter without mentioning Lemonhead. The cosmetic glitter brand revolutionized the market with easy to adhere, easy to wash-off glitter “Spacepaste” made from natural vegan ingredients. Their latest “Phantom” shade is perfect for the Digital Age, although be warned—even the vanishing glitter is not for the subtle.  

  • The Power Move

TOM FORD

Extreme Lip Spark in Powertrip

Tom Ford Lip Spark in Powertrip.

Sequins...in your lipstick? It’s more likely than you think. Tom Ford has answered the question, “How do I get even more glitter on my face?” with “Put it in your lipstick, bitch.” At $55 per tube, Lip Spark is hardly for the casual glitter consumer, but that’s why we call it a power move. 

  • The Diva

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in FU$$Y

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in FU$$Y.

An obvious source of shimmer is in the classic, pouty lip gloss. Fenty offers their own take on the early-2000s staple with their Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer in an attitude-ridden pink. What color were you going to get your lip gloss in, anyway? Nude? Grow up.
