1. Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eyeshadow

Stila launched these liquid eyeshadows in late 2016, and they've been dominating the glitter game ever since. They're super pigmented, and because they're liquid you don't have to worry about fallout!

2. Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay has been a frontrunner for bold colours in makeup since its creation, and the Moondust palette is no different. The palette features eight glitter shadows in a variety of colours, and also has a companion brush sold separately made specifically for this formulation.

3. MAC Pigments

MAC's pigments come in over 40 different colours, and there are some that really shine. For the best results, spray a brush with MAC Fix+ before use; it'll help the shadow stick and improve the pigmentation big time.


4. Sigma Glitters and Shimmers

Sigma is best known for its brushes, but its glitter shadows shouldn't be overlooked. They're made out of tiny glitter flecks, making them super reflective. The glitters are also featured in sets of three with some of Sigma's other shimmer pigments.

5. Glitter Injections

The shadows from Glitter Injections are about as glittery as it gets. They make individual pans with single colours, and larger pans with a carefully selected colour palette. Just look at that pigmentation!

6. Too Faced Glitter Bomb Palette

According to founder Jerrod Blandino, Too Faced created the first glitter eyeshadow and it's newest palette is an homage to the trend. It features versatile colours, as well as an "intensifying" black base and a "brightening" white base.

7. OCC Glitters

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' (OCC) range encompasses a variety of finishes, including its intense cosmetic glitters. The colour range is varied and unique, and the shadows have pigment for days.


8. Makeup Forever Starlit Powders

Amongst Makeup Forever's vast array of makeup are its Starlit powders; a microfine glitter with intense pigment. Whilst normally used as eye shadows, the lighter shades work particularly well as higlighters.

Colourpop have long been known for its lipsticks, but its repertoire is growing. They even make eyeshadows these days, glitter included.

10. Huda Beauty Rose Gold Textured Palette

Huda Beauty's Rose Gold Textured Palette has taken over Instagram, and it's pretty obvious why. The palette features 10 matte shades, but the real stars of the show are the eight shimmer shades.


12. NYX Lid Lingerie

One of NYX's biggest lines has been their Lip Lingeries, so its since launched a sister range of eyeshadows called Lid Lingerie. The shadows are a super easy to apply liquid formula, and come in a variety of metallic shades.

13. Australis Metallix Eyeshadow Foils

Some of Australis' hidden gem products are its Metallix eyeshadow foils. They're super reflective, and you can change the finish depending on whether you wet your brush or not.

14. Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Shadows

Anastasia Beverly Hills' best known eyeshadow product is, of course, the Modern Renaissance Palette. Whilst the palette is beautiful, the shades are almost all matte. Anastasia Beverly Hills' shimmer shades are just as pigmented, and available in individual pans.

15. Crushed Gems Cosmetics

Pretty much the only thing Crushed Gems sells is glitter, but it's because they're bloody good at it. Loose glitter, chunky glitter, duochrome glitters, holographic glitters, you name it. And yes, they do all look as good as these swatches.


16. Inglot AMC Pure Pigment
