"Some Girls Are Just Born With Glitter In Their Veins"


The Egg Nog has been purchased, the Christmas Tree is up, and my secret love affair for sparkle, sequins, and glitter is out for the world to see. I have been known to rock the sequin shoes or the bejeweled necklace every now and then but 'tis the season to go all out in the glitter department. I recently picked up a few new products to help me achieve the perfect Holiday looks.

(UD Diamond Dog, Stila Metallic Lavendar, UD Zodiac, Stila Titanium)

When I made my trip to Sephora I had one thing in mind. Sparkle. Easier said than done. I wanted shadows that would be easy to work with and less fall-out the better. I was in search of a more sophisticated/ grown up glitter. One that I could wear to holiday parties and everyone not think I just played in costume makeup. I came across Urban Decay's Moondust eyeshadows and fell in love. Creamy, extremely sparkly, easy to apply, and the color selection was great. I walked away with Zodiac, a gorgeous green glitter bomb with specks of blue. Its crazy how glittery these shadows actually are, my camera couldn't pick up the complexity of this shade. I also grabbed Diamond Dog a beautiful brown with silver glitter. 

For those of you who want the shine and sparkle of a glitter but would rather skip a glitter shadow the new Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye shadows are insane. A very intense metallic finish that almost looks wet. The color selection is huge but I opted for Titanium a beautiful dark silver and Metallic Lavender. 

To add to my always growing glitter polishes I picked up Finger Paints Colorful Collage and Peacock Portrait. From OPI's Holiday collection My Favorite Ornament drew me in. I will definitely be rocking one of these for New Years. 

Are you a fan of glitter?
