When it comes to glittery eyeshadows, the gold glitter is definitely on the rise.
We’re talking big-box stores and thrift stores, with dozens of brands making gold glitter into a trendy trend.
We’ve talked before about the trend of making gold shimmer as a way to blend in with your makeup, but how much gold glitter should you use in a makeup look?
We’ve put together a list of the best, most glittery, and least glittery makeup products out there.
We can’t wait to try out new shades of gold glitter to see what you think!
But don’t worry, this isn’t a list for the ultra-cute, glitter-free eyeshadow palettes.
Gold glitter has a history of making its way into makeup, and it can really shine.
In fact, when we looked at some of the most popular gold glitter products, we noticed that it was often paired with shades of color that were too bold for the eyes.
To help you know which eyeshader is right for you, we took a closer look at what we know to be the most and least-glittery eyes and tried to find the best.
Here are our top picks for best gold glitters, as well as the worst.
Top 5 Gold Glitter Eyeshadow PalettesWe’re not going to lie: You might be tempted to use gold glitter for something more bold than the standard look, and this list is a great place to start.
But we think there are more shades of glitter that you’ll like than you’d think.
These are the best eyeshaders we could find for glittery looks, and they’re not necessarily limited to eyeshading.
We’d recommend these as your go-to eyesharks when glittering, but if you’re more of a matte, they could work well in some other looks as well.
