All That Glitters

By Glinda

Looking to add a little sparkle to your holiday look?

MAKE UP FOR EVER Glitters Can be used pretty much anywhere, on lips, eyes, body, and hair.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Diamond Powder A little more subtle than the Glitters above, these are made out of mother-of-pearl.  Purty!  Although why they didn’t just call it Mother of Pearl Powder, I’m not sure.

Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour This one is just for the eyes, but excellent.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner Again, it’s just eyeliner, but man, what an eyeliner it is.

NARS The Multiple- Orgasm  Come on, even if it wasn’t a cult favorite, I would buy it for the name alone.

Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Shimmer Dust Fairy dust in a bottle, just spray it on body or hair. No scent, no mess.  Highly recommended for a special night out.

    Oh sparkly! But which sparkles are subtle, and which are not? They range from spangly, like a toddler gone wild with a glitter pen, to soft glimmers, for the woman who prefers to diffuse rather than accentuate the interesting texture her skin has acquired. And you can’t tell without a skin test.

    I can vouch for the Nars Multiple in Orgasm being diffuse enough to wear every day, including to the office. I haven’t tested any of the other colors of the Multiple, but I would imagine the formula is similar for all of them.

    @gamma- The most subtle on this list are the Tarina Tarantino, the NARS, and the Diamond Powder. You can almost always be sure that anything from Urban Decay will not be subtle. The Glitter has larger particles than the Diamond Powder, and the Laura Mercier is in the middle.

    Guerlain has one out this season as well.
