Ahhhhh the sparkly stuff. I know that it has been considered “juvenile”, “out of style”, and even “dangerous for those who wear contact lenses” (me), and yet…I still love the stuff. It sticks to everything. Gets everywhere. But somehow it’s worth the mess, finding it in strange and hidden places for days after wearing it. Guess what all you raccoons? (people who love sparkly objects) GLITTER IS BAAAAACK! Thank goodness. Because I was gonna go ahead and just bring it back all on my own if it didn’t officially make it down the runways.
But it DID!
Pat McGrath brought back some luscious 90’s inspired glittery lips at the DKNY show during New York Fashion Week…and it just went on from there. If you’re feeling rather, er, glitter shy, here’s a fabulous article filled with ideas on how to use the sparkly stuff. Some of these ideas are more wearable in real life and some of them are just plain fun! I don’t know about you, but these sure make me want to bust out my glitter stash again!
And then when you’re feeling nostalgic, remember the 90’s golden age of glitter…
Oh yes. I remember plastering my eyelids with straight up bling. Caking my clear lip gloss with silver craft glitter. I was a glitter aholic! (hmm…maybe I still am…) And is there anyone alive who really actually hates sparkly nail polish? I rest my case.d
It’s all well and good that glitter is “back”…but it really begs the question: did it ever really leave?
I don’t think so. Everyone, somewhere, even if it’s deep deep down inside, wants to look like a disco ball at some point in their lives.
