Beauty Shop | The Best In Shimmer

6 Beauty Products (And 2 Accessories) That Keep Us Obsessed With Sparkle

The cold, dark days of winter had us practicing our skin skills. In an effort to brighten things up we swept bright shades of red and fuchsia on our lips. We dug into our makeup bags for bronzers, highlighters, for blush that would add a little life to our look. And then it happened. We fell in love with shimmer all over again, and just in time for spring. Naked Illuminated Powder will do that to you (trust us, you will want shop it below). We were reminded by our love for a little sparkle and the uplifting feeling it gives. Who doesn't love a glitter moment? We do. Shop 6 fabulous products that deliver the best in shimmer. And because we're clearly carried away, we've included 2 accessories that make the cut.

We’re impressed by the workmanship on this fun, blinged-out watch in "Carnation Pink"—a subtle version of rose gold that produces an elegant look when combined with clear crystals. There are two ways to wear this Delancey Pave Watch. We prefer to not take it so seriously by pairing it with denim, a simple tee or blouse, and other bracelets. Alternatively, this is the watch to wear to your next black tie or formal occasion.


Mesh socks dotted with actual glitter caught our eye and we were instantly taken. Available in both gold and pink, we're reminded of a ballerina's costume; the Nutcracker Suite; but most of all—we can't stop thinking about pairing these with our highest Saint Laurent's or Jimmy Choo's
