Glittery makeup has made a comeback and can be a quite tricky trend to pull off, but when done the right way, you can look like a movie star. I tried a bunch of glitter eyeshadows, and these look majorly flattering.

NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow In Outer Limits Review

I fell in love with this NARS eyeshadow in the shade ‘Outerlimits.’ It’s a gorgeous rose gold color, and I wore it by layering it on my lid twice. This eyeshadow is so pigmented, and the color very buildable. It looks beautiful when dusted on top of a matte shade, and it adds killer dimension to your eyes. It’s the perfect amount of shimmer, nothing too over the top. We need to take a moment to appreciate the utter beauty of this formula.

Since it’s a gold shade, this will flatter any eye color so well.

2. Tarte Tarteist Metallic Shadow

Pros

  • Ultra-creamy formula
  • Smooth color payoff
  • No fallout
  • Comes in various shades
  • Long-wearing

Cons

  • Needs a primer

Tarte Tarteist Metallic Shadow Review

These metallic eyeshadows by Tarte are so glittery, and they look exquisite on the eyes. These come in 22 glittery shades, and I tried the shade ‘Flask’.  I couldn’t stop admiring how beautifully this holds up. Its formula went on smooth and evenly on my lid, and the color was so pigmented. ‘Flask’ is a bright silver with a metallic finish and has bits of sparkle to its finish. I paired it up with black eyeliner, and it transformed my makeup into a whole festive look. It’s best to apply this over a matte shade of eyeshadow of your choice to add depth and dimension to your eyes.

This silver shade will look extremely flattering on blue eyes and will make the blue in your eyes pop even more.

3. Urban Decay Moondust Palette

Pros

  • Lots of glitter payoff
  • Long-wearing
  • Pigmented colors
  • Layers well
  • 100% cruelty-free

Cons

  • Slight fallout

Urban Decay Moondust Palette Review

I love Urban Decay, and I decided to buy this glitter eyeshadow palette as I only had matte ones and I wanted to try something different. Let me tell you, I was thrilled. This is a stunning palette – the formulas, its packaging – it’s all superb. The colors are so vivid even with all the glitter, and they are easy to work with. I recommend using a glitter glue to avoid fallout and baking under the eyes – so in case of fallout, it can easily be brushed away. The sparkly gunmetal case it comes in is to die for, and the full-size mirror makes it easier to use.

This palette has something for everyone – it’s got soft pink, a peach, a purple, vibrant green, granite, a blue, and even a brown – so it doesn’t matter what color eyes you have, you can pick this up and find something that fits you.

4. Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow

Pros

  • Very pigmented
  • Glitter is soft and smooth
  • Minimal fallout
  • Don’t settle in creases
  • Extremely long-wearing

Cons

  • Expensive

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow Review

I love Bobbi Brown for its quality and performance. These eyeshadows come in a range of incredible wearable bright to soft shades.  I picked up the ‘Lilac’ shade, and I was so happy with the results. The glitter applies evenly and smoothly – it does not feel gritty upon application. I was so impressed with its incredible texture and how it went on – the color and shimmer looks beautiful when it catches the light! The fallout was rather minimal, nothing that bothered me but when I applied this over a primer and some matte eyeshadow, there was no fallout at all.

This gorgeous lilac shade will look extremely stunning on green, hazel or brown eyes and if you want a glitter eyeshadow that can realistically be worn even during the day, you will love this.

5. Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow

Pros

  • Very pigmented
  • Comes in a wide array of shades
  • High-quality formula
  • Pretty packaging
  • Glides on smoothly

Cons

  • There is a certain amount of fallout

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Review

These glitter eyeshadows by Stila are everything! It was love at first sight, and from their range of about 11 shades, I ended up picking this beautiful silver and copper sparkle shade in the name ‘Kitten Karma.’ It has a uniquely lightweight and water-infused texture, and it combines the perfect mix of pearl and glitter. However, there is some level of fallout, and now I’m very careful when I decide to wear this. I’ll give you a heads up and strictly recommend wearing this for a night-out or for a maximum of 4-5 hours if you do not want your face to end up looking like a shiny disco ball.

The gorgeous champagne color will complement any eye color as it’s a very versatile shade.

  • Long-wearing
  • No fallout

Cons

  • Needs a primer

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Review

I love me some plum eyeshadow, and this one by Anastasia Beverly Hills in the shade ‘Rosette’ is the perfect warm plum with a pearl finish. It has a quite smooth and buttery texture with finely milled shimmer. I applied this over a primer and a matte base shade. It showed up true to its pan color and looked so vibrant! This gave me around 8-9 hours of wear time before showing signs of fading, which I was satisfied with. Also, it did not settle into my crease line.

This plum color will look incredible on green eyes, and if you were on the hunt for the perfect plum shade for your accent, this is it.

This MAC glitter can be combined with other products to create high-level glitter and sparkle effect. It comes in 26 different shades, and I picked up the pure silver color to try out. I must say, this is way too over the top for my taste, but for those of you who need some extra glitter for special occasions like festivals and on-stage performances, this will do wonders. You need to use an adhesive to get this to stay and prevent fallout but no matter what, there will a certain level of it.

Just a tiny dab of this silver glitter can be used as an accent shade for green and blue eyes when you’re in the mood to go all-out.

L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Eye Shadow Quad Review

I wanted to try out blue glitter eyeshadow, and I found this L’Oreal quad in the shade ‘Skinny Jeans’ – an apt name for this palette. It contains four shades – a dark shimmery blue, a second dark blue, a pearly white shade, and a glittery light blue shade. I created quite a few looks using these shades together as well as individually. I did enjoy using this palette as it was a low-maintenance, easy-to-use set of colors.

Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow Review

If you’re looking for an affordable, drugstore glitter eyeshadow, these by Sephora are a winner. They come in a large range of shades and finishes. The one I bought is called ‘Brown Diamonds,’ and it’s a beautiful bronzey-gold shade that makes my eye color pop so well. Its thicker in consistency and goes on smoothly and evenly. I love the sparkly effect that it leaves and it stays on for a good 6-7 hours before it starts to fade. This is a perfect shade for a night-out at the club.

The packaging itself looks dreamy, and the formula on the eyes looks amazing. I applied this with a wet brush to intensify the color, and I was so impressed with the payoff.

Its silky cream formulation creates a sparkly look that lasts. These come in 8 different shades, and I tried the purple shade because it looked so bold and fresh.

Quick Tips To Choose And Wear Glitter Eyeshadow Like A Pro

Now that you’ve decided to get yourself some glitter eyeshadow and you know which products are hot, let me give you a few simple tips on selecting one that would work for you and also some application tips for the most flattering effect.

  • The key to wearing glitter eyeshadow the right way is all about moderation. Too much glitter will only result in an animated effect and make you look like a teenager from the early 2000s.
  • If you have blue eyes, make them pop by choosing warmer tones like golds, peaches, and burnt orange browns as well as bronze.
  • Those of you with green eyes can try golds, plums rose, and mauve. Violet-based shades will look really pretty on green eyes.
  • For hazel or brown eyes, try colors that create contrast – like blues, greens, and even violet-based shades.
  • Golds, browns, and bronze are versatile and will look amazing on any eye color.
  • Wearing an eyeshadow primer is a must to prevent creasing, fading, and fallout.
  • Always wear a matte crease color. Applying shimmer all over the lid loses the dimension of shape and contour.
  • If you have mature eyelids, it’s best to find a balance between matte and shimmer.
  • Look for high-quality products that are gentle on your eyes.

Those were some handy tips that I always keep in mind if I plan on wearing glitter makeup. Aaaand that was my pick of the 12 best glitter eyeshadows out there. Do you have a favorite shade or brand? Share with me in the comments section below.
