We hardly need convincing to commit to 2017's (incredibly pervasive) glitter trend—it's a playful and nostalgia-ridden way to amp up the wattage this summer, after all. (Limited Too vibes, anyone?) But leave it to Milk Makeup to up the ante with a great product and an even better cause: The cult-fave brand is launching a limited-edition Glitter Stick ($30) today, and in honor of Pride Month, half of the product's proceeds will go toward NYC's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center.
Fittingly enough, the Glitter Stick is a sparkling highlighter with a rainbow sheen. And true to Milk form, it features a quality-crafted base of hydrating plant oils for a soothing and incredibly versatile finish: You can swipe it on your eyes and cheekbones for a barely there sparkle, or you can layer it on for more impact. It's a solid choice for your local Pride parade, a music festival, a beachy weekend, or anything else your summer agenda has on tap.
As for the product's great cause, The Center has operated as a haven for the LGBTQ community since 1984, seeking to empower and engage through family and health services as well as cultural events. It's been an institution for several decades, and its impact has been seen well beyond NYC's borders—which makes it such an obvious choice for Milk's Pride initiative. And the collab went even further: The brand also shot the promotional imagery (seen above) at The Center and created a video with its youth program vogueing group.

The only thing to keep in mind: This product is limited-edition, so scoop it up sooner rather than later.
