The launch of Pat McGrath’s Lust 004 glitter lip kit left us coveting the shimmering smiles we saw all over our Instagram feed. But because we know a full-on glitter pout may not be everyone’s style, we rounded up the sparkly set to suit every level of makeup lover.
1. For the Minimalist: Surratt Beauty Lip Lustre in Ensoleille, £22
Does your makeup routine consist solely of mascara, tinted moisturizer and lip balm? If yes, swipe on this glimmering neutral gloss. It’ll give your natural lip tone a subtle boost. The almost undetectable shimmer blends beautifully with the smooth (not sticky) formula, producing a plump, glistening pout.
2. For the Chameleon: Jouer Long-Wear Lip Topper in Skinny Dip, £13.50
For those who love to switch from a nude to crimson lip halfway through the day, this shimmering lipstick topper will be a new go-to. The clear base with champagne flecks glides over your lipstick, giving you a totally different look. Our favorite feature is the coconut-oil based formula that hydrates, and prevents shimmer particles from settling into lip lines.
3. For the Bold Glitter Girl: Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Big Bang, £13.50
It’s a one-swipe wonder: This sheer fuchsia bullet is packed with hot-pink glitter. The intense payoff, paired with the pink-tinged-purple hue, makes for a show-stopping pout. Just be sure to trace your lips with a matching liner to ensure the product doesn’t migrate outside your lips.
4. For the Eccentric at Heart: Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream in Unicorn Tears, £18
Just like the name suggests, this cool-toned lavender lipstick with iridescent blue micro-shimmer gives lips an otherworldly gleam. Wear it alone, or layer it over a mid-tone pink for a warm violet shade that’s not for the faint of heart.
5. For the Forever Glamorous: Pat McGrath Lust 004 Lipstick Kit in Vermillion Venom
The lust-worthy kit from pro makeup artist Pat McGrath packs super-fine red glitter particles that you can press over lipstick or gloss. Tip: If a few flecks fall on your face mid application, use a piece of medical tape to remove them without disrupting the rest of your makeup.
