Between the sparkling roots that dominated this year's music festival circuit and the glimmering lip art mania set in motion by Pat McGrath's Lust 004, it's safe to say that 2016 has been the year of glitter. (An homage to the passing of our beloved Starman, perhaps?) And it's not over, by any means: Holiday party season is rapidly approaching, providing ample more opportunity to embrace the trend before it fades.
But a glittery look is only as good as the makeup you use to achieve it, which is why we have to tip our hats to Instagram (where else) for putting a new-to-us product on our radar.

Can you blame Instagram for collectively swooning over these ultra-pretty pastes? You can apply it virtually anywhere without any of the sloppiness of loose glitter.
Dab it on your eyelids for a high-octane take on the glossy lid trend, take your highlight to new heights by sweeping it across your cheekbones, or make like McGrath by pressing it on your lips.
A brilliant way to conceal dark circles, no? Holiday party season, we are R-E-A-D-Y.
