If there’s ever a good time to add some glitz and glamour to your daily routine, it’s Christmas. Whether you’re on the hunt for shimmery pamper products, need to add a little glitter makeup to your collection or fancy some sparkly DIY homeware, we’ve got you covered.

Sparkly Pamper Products

  • Glitter Peel Off Masks

In your December boxes, some of you will have received the Cosmic Pink Ruby Glitter Peel Off Mask by Korean Beauty experts Vitamasques. Vegan, cruelty-free and paraben-free, it’s the ideal shimmery companion for some pampering me-time. I mean, look at that colour payoff!

Infused with precious gemstone powders that brighten your face and rosehip oil that soothes the complexion, this mask energises, revitalises and firms your skin. Better yet, it's unbelievably glittery. We just can't get enough!

Simply apply a thin layer to your face, relax for 15 minutes and let the sparkles work their magic. Then, slowly peel it off starting at the bottom. I'd recommend using it while you soak in the bath. It's the glitzy relaxation treatment you've always dreamed of.

  • Bath Fizzers

I don’t know about you, but my body starts to crave long hot baths this time of year. Treat yourself to a festive season pamper by adding a glittery bath bomb to your relaxation ritual.

The I Heart Revolution Bath Fizzers are the perfect shimmery companions. They come in a range of colours and scents, including Golden Dip, Pink Fizz and Mermaid Splash. They’d even make great little stocking fillers. Shop the range here. 

Shimmery Makeup Products

  • Glitter Lips

Add a little glamour to your makeup routine with some glittery lips. If you were one of the lucky ones to get your hands on our Limited Edition ‘All I Want’ box, you’ll already have tried and tested the Beauty BLVD Glitter Lips in the shade Ruby Slippers.

Stand out at the Christmas party with these unbelievable long-lasting, waterproof and smudge proof glitter lips. To apply, keep your lips parted and coat them with the gloss. Once that turns clear, generously apply the glitter and dust away any excess using a makeup brush.

Lasting up to 8 hours, this lipstick is every glitter makeup fan’s dream lipstick!

  • Liquid Jelly Blush

As far as I’m concerned, you can never have too much glitter makeup, especially not at this time of year. Add some extra glitz and glamour to your makeup routine with the lightweight blush you received in your December box.

Hydrated, pigmented and lightweight, you’re going to love Liquid Jelly Blush by NIKO and its shimmery golden hue. This glittery Bali shade will give your cheeks a natural sparkle this winter. Simply apply a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks and the top of your cheekbones.


  • SensatioNail Polish

Our ‘All I Wanted’ Limited edition box also included the SensatioNail Peel Off Polish in Gold Glitter (Stop Metalling in my Business). If you love glitter makeup, this glitzy polish won’t disappoint!

Getting a shimmery manicure has never been easier. This amazing polish glides on effortlessly, dries in minutes, and doesn’t damage your nails. Just apply two coats and allow to dry naturally.

The best part? When you decide you want a change of colour, you won’t need to faff around with nail polish remover. Simply peel off the polish and you’ll have a clean canvas to work off.

I also like Good as Rose Gold and Set In Rhine-Stone from the same collection. You can buy them here.

Glittery Accessories

  • Handbags

Nothing says Christmas glamour more than a shimmery handbag. Glitz up your Christmas outfit with a glittery crossbody bag, a golden clutch or a sparkly mini pyramid.

  • Shoes

Whether your rocking a classic little black dress or pulling out all the stops, no Christmas outfit [link party inspo blog] is complete without a pair of sparkly shoes. From chunky heels to stiletto straps, these are all the trending styles.

DIY Glitter Showstoppers 

  • DIY Sparkly Ice Cubes

I can’t get in the bath without a refreshing drink by my side, so here’s an easy way to make your cold beverage extra shimmery. All you need is:

Step 1: Place a ¼ teaspoon of glitter into each ice cube. I’d go for gold and red colours, but you can choose whatever shades take your fancy.

Step 2: Then fill the rest of the cube with warm water (the frozen water will be more clear if you freeze hotter water) and allow to freeze for at least two hours.

These are the perfect shimmery spruce for your water, wine and mixed drinks. You could also serve them at your Christmas party to wow your friends!

  • DIY Glittery Wines Glasses

If you’re hosting a New Year’s Eve Party or just want to impress your friends with some glittery homeware, why not glitz up your wine glasses? You’ll need:

Step 1: Section off the part of the glass where you don’t want to apply the glitter to with the tape. Make sure the lips won’t touch any glitter.

Step 2: Clean the glass with the antiseptic. This will give the glass a glossy finish.

Step 3: Apply the mod podge glue generously then cover with glitter. Shake off the excess and let dry. Repeat the process and add a second coat.

Step 4: Once dry, add a coat of mod podge to create a shiny finish. Allow to dry and repeat the process twice, adding a total of three coats.

Step 5: Once dry, remove the tape.

Step 6: Pour your favourite wine and enjoy!
