Gone are the days of sticky, saccharine roll-on shimmer and tacky, glitter hair gel — the fashion world has made it clear that wearable sparkle is here to stay, and brands have come prepared with sophisticated, luxury formulas.


We blame it on Pat McGrath and her epically spectacular Lust 004 Lip Kits, which gave models glitter-encrusted pouts in shades like Bloodwine and Vermillion Venom at the DKNY runway show this fall. Then we blame the Instagram-savvy festival goers, and their shimmering candy-colored locks and braids. And then, we just blame ourselves, because glitter is irresistible and the holidays are perfect time to indulge.
