As the festive season unfolds, everything–from clothes, bags, shoes, and accessories to home decor–is sprinkled with a dash of glitter. This festive season, however, the sparkle has spilled over into the pigmented world of beauty. Now, the beauty realm is no stranger to shimmering elements. They are usually reserved for eye shadows and highlighters. This festive season, however, is all about glitter lips.
The trend kicked off with Dior’s groundbreaking lipstick, capable of transforming with a mere smack of the lips, revealing a dazzling glitter finish. Swiftly following suit,MAC Cosmetics, Tarte, and Kiko Milano, among others, flooded our social feeds with shiny pouts, solidifying glitter lipsticks as the trendiest beauty product of the season. The Animakeup ‘Kawai Kisses’ Glitter Lip Kit in particular is turning out to be a TikTok favorite and a leader of the glitter lipsticks trend.
From shimmering mattes to gleaming glosses, glitter lipsticks in a diverse range of finishes and shades are going viral on both TikTok and Instagram. Beauty influencers like Mikayla Nogueira and Nikkie de Jager are obsessed with the sparkling beauty trend. Glitter lipsticks ranging from subtle nudes, adorable pinks, and party-ready reds to unconventional icy blues and blacks are the hottest beauty trends of the moment.
