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.
This lightweight, baked powder for face and body with microfine shimmer is at the very top of our list because of its unique formula and the stunning effect it creates. Naked Illuminated Powder is first baked on a terra cotta disc for 24 hours, and then finished by hand. Baking the powder gives it a high level of shimmer without the metallic look of cheaper formulas. The effect is a lightweight, sophisticated, microfine shimmer with light-reflecting particles that leaves skin with a truly luminous, radiant look.
This bestselling body scrub continues to sell out everywhere. This particular formula of Frank Body limited edition Shimmer Scrub delivers three times the shimmer. Its a unique scrub that smells like sweet mocha coffee, and contains sugar granules that exfoliate while moisturizers like carrot and grapeseed oil soften. It contains iridescent mica particles that leave your skin with an even shimmer. Natural + vegan.
We love this creamy Skin Tight Body Lotion that comes in all skin tones created by celebrity makeup artist Bethany Karlyn. Super subtle light-reflecting particles in a natural emollient base give the skin a flattering glow. It's meant to blur minor imperfections and enhance definition in arms and legs. Infused with organic botanicals.
If you're looking to add gorgeous (not theatrical) sparkle to lips, look no further. Stila's mega-sparkle Glitterati Lip Top Coat is specially designed to wear over matte liquid lipstick. This breakthrough formula contains ultra-fine pearls in a clear water base so it washes over lips adding high shine sparkle while keeping lip color matte.
Decorated with Swarovski crystals and tiny faux pearls, Elizabeth Cole's Peggy Earrings are the perfect piece of costume jewelry to own. These show stopping earrings allow you to sport these and do little else. A simple dress gets a major boost by these flattering, angled shoulder grazers bearing a huge dose of versatile, neutral colored sparkle.
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.
SHOP Lirikas by Lirika GLITTER ANKLE SOCKS
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
