Honestly, there are times when glitter eyeliners, to us, seem like nothing more than gimmicky trends. The very idea of them just seems like it’s… not particularly sustainable. They’re just a little too messy for comfort.
But occasionally, we do find products that eventually change our minds about these categories of products, and it becomes evident to us that these kinds of products might just be here to stay— and we’re absolutely okay with it.
That said, here are seven glitter eyeliners that truly changed the way we think about glitter eyeliners for the better:
Now, this product isn’t just a glitter eyeliner, but it does have a few shimmery shades that allow us to consider this a glitter eyeliner on its own. The Revlon ColorStay Exactify™ Liquid Liner is a unique entry on this list because of its applicator. The pizza wheel applicator of this product is quite an innovation on Revlon’s part, allowing for a very different kind of application. This particular product does take some getting used to, but once you’ve gotten the hang of it, it works pretty great!
The Tarteist™ PRO Glitter Liner from Tarte Cosmetics is a dual-sided (and dual finish) eyeliner that’s just as gorgeous as it sounds. One side of this eyeliner is a shiny metallic, but the real star of the show is the other side which dispenses a complementary glittery color. Even if this product is only available in one shade, a lovely albeit subtle rose gold, it’s still a gorgeous glittery eyeliner that is able to make you look your best.
We really do enjoy how solid the Glitter POP! Peel-Off Eyeliner by Too Faced is. The colors of this product are both stunning and wearable. That and this eyeliner’s proprietary peel-off formula makes this product effortless to put on and take off. In our opinion, this is definitely a more high-quality glitter eyeliner to consider for your looks.
Revlon’s PhotoReady Eye Art™ Lid + Line + Lash is about as versatile and multi-use as eyeliners can get. Besides being a wonderful glitter eyeliner, it also works as an eyeshadow as well as a lash color. In addition, this wonderful product from Revlon is also particularly long-lasting so you get plenty of bang for your buck with this relatively long-lasting product.
Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty brand has pretty much become synonymous with a certain cool, chic, trendy glitziness that few brands are able to capture. This aesthetic is captured in both its appealing marketing, as well as its stylish products such as the Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner. This eyeliner delivers a perfectly glittery look that’s still highly sophisticated. Available in three shades, these eyeliners look gorgeous, and they do last long, too!
The Stardust Glitter Eyeliner from e.l.f. Cosmetics has to be our favorite option for glitter eyeliner from the drugstore. This product is competitive in the sense that it can keep up—even go farther—with any of the products on this list. While it isn’t gifted with the widest, most expansive or impressive shade range, it more than makes up for the fact by delivering on an extremely solid formula that both easy and enjoyable to use.
The Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner is the eyeliner that actually changed the way we think about glitter eyeliners. This fantastic glitter eyeliner from Urban Decay is gifted with a fantastic formula that’s both highly pigmented and long-lasting. The abundance of shades also makes this the glitter eyeliner to beat. We absolutely love this stuff, and this’ll probably be a product we’ll be reaching for very often indeed.
