Getting Into Glitter

I've never been a massive fan of glitter. A little bit of shimmer here and there but I've always been a matte kinda girl at heart. Enter these beauties from NARS and Paul and Joe Beaute, and everything changed. Just like that. 

Perfect for the up coming season and all things Christmas, when is a better time to get this new obsession of all things glitter? I'm talking all the glitter eye shadows you could ever need. Pop a bit over a smokey eye or neutral eye to jazz it up  bit. A little sweep of glitter is all you need and it makes the look that bit better. These are my picks to add a little bit of sparkle into your makeup collection...

First up I'm going to give a massive mention to Paul and Joe Beaute. They have got glitter down and I'm going to put this new obsession solely down to them. The eye colour trio's in 02* and 08* are the ones. The first shadow in the trio's are the ones with all the sparkle and as soon as you give the shadows a swatch you'll know exactly what I mean and I can just imagine that you'll fall in love with it like I did. They're gold and silver glitters like I've never seen before. Just trust me, they're amazing. Adding a little more Paul and Joe into the mix and the Eye Gloss Duo in 01* is something I never thought I'd be into. Especially not the yellow shade, but my god, it's beautiful. Imagine the glitter shade in the eye colour trio palette 02 but in a gloss form, so more glossy, more glittery, perfect! (Can you tell I love it yet?) 

Another favourite are the NARS Dual Intensity Eye Shadows in Callisto* and Dione*. Perfect glittery shadow-ness. That's all I need to say. Read the post linked for all the deets on these beauties and of course some unmissable swatches. They're a goodn' and a firm favourite in my collection that I just can't imagine not using. 

I'm actually so happy I've gotten into these and can only imagine this obsession and collection will be ever growing.
