These Sparkly Beauty Gifts Are So Pretty, You'll Show Them Off All Year
Be honest with yourself. If you love beauty, you love glitter, too. Maybe not the removal process — it's so darn pesky to get off! — but just the pure gorgeousness of it all. The way it has a lively glow, how it demands (and deserves) attention . . . kind of like you. We rounded up the prettiest, most blinged-out beauty gifts for this holiday season for you to get your glitter on. Just be warned: these products are so stunning, you'll want to leave them out on your vanity all year.
Ultra CHI Glitter Sweet 1" Iron
CHI straightening irons are known for their efficiency and durability — we've talked to friends who have owned theirs for over a decade! If you're going to have one of the brand's tools as part of your arsenal of what seems like an eternity, make it festive. This glitter-encrusted tool ($150) is a stunning addition to your vanity.
Shiffa Luxury Gold Body Oil
Real gold flakes are suspended in this luxurious body oil ($68), promoting detoxification and tension relief (who doesn't need that after the holidays?). The formula is packed with jasmine, lemon, orange, and argan oils, so you'll smell as fabulous as you feel.
By Terry Gold Baume de Rose Parure Lip Balm
This lip balm is already extravagant, but it got a gilded upgrade for the holidays. Microparticles of gold are embedded in the rich formula ($31). The tube is housed in ornament packaging, making it all ready for gifting.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Starry Night Eau de Parfum
The black and silver glitter on this stunning bottle is almost as entrancing as the juice inside. The Starry Night edition of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is the same as the iconic original — delectable patchouli, sensual jasmine, and zingy bergamot.
Sephora Glitter Happy Brush Set
Keep your love of glitter on display at all times using this rose gold makeup brush set ($85). Unlike other kits you've owned, you'll actually use every tool in the range, including the foundation brush, blender, and concealer brush. The bristles are extragorgeous due to an infusion of 24-carat gold (really!).
Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder For Face and Body
Urban Decay's glimmering body powder ($30) now comes in a radiant bronze hue. The sun-kissed color and tiny flecks of glitter will make friends think you've been partying in Ibiza, even when you've really just been napping and watching Netflix.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Sparkle Edition
The stunning bottle of Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium perfume ($300) is lacquered with over 2,000 black Swarovski crystals, making it the crown jewel of your fragrance wardrobe. Inside the flask is a delectable concoction of vanilla, coffee, and patchouli. One spritz will make you smell like a sexy French pastry.
Nails Inc New Globe Walk Snow Globe Polish
Customize your glitter application with this cool snow-globe-inspired topcoat ($15). If you want just a light sprinkle of shimmer, let the flakes settle to the bottom of the bottle before slicking on the polish. For an extra dose of bling, shake the product so all the glitter is suspended throughout the clear polish, then apply.
Julep If Looks Could Thrill Liquid Chameleon Eyeliner Trio
While it's hard to tell at first glance, the black eyeliners in this set ($30) are jam-packed with multichromatic sparkle. The three shades (silver, gold, and purple) shift with each turn of the head. Try using them to make a cat eye for an ultraflashy flick.
