It used to be that glitter makeup was only right for strippers, drag queens, and 8th grade girls. But lately, shiny faces have glinted from the runways (thanks, Giles Deacon) to the red carpet (and thank you
, Katy Perry).
Desperate to know if shimmer could really work away from Las Vegas, the NYLON crew tested a box (literally) of glitter-infused makeup. Here, our favorites:
1. Cargo's Boogie Night's eyeliner.
A subtle way to glint the corners of your eyes. $18 for five.
2. Urban Decay's Heavy Metal kit.
A controlled way to coat extreme glitter on your face (removing it is easy, too). $18 each.
3. Avon Shimmer Tips mascara
. Their wand safely infuses lashes with metallic silver or gold. $4.95 each.
4. Guerlain Midnight Butterfly spray
. An atomizer that releases liquid shimmer powder for your face, hair, and body. $82.
