The grown up guide to wearing glitter lips

If Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel and Nars tell you to put glitter on your lips, you don’t question it


At Preen By Thornton Bregazzi, models wore gold leaf on foreheads and ears. At Erdem, it was a fragmented silver leaf on the eyes, inspired by Cecil Beaton’s high society portraiture. There were broken crystals on eyes at Halpern, gems on the eye at Giambattista Valli.

In lieu of a wardrobe of sequinned and feathered outfits to wear all month, tis the season for glitter everywhere else, namely eyes, nails and surprisingly, lips.

There are glitter lipsticks launching in droves and no, not in gloopy lipgloss formula for teenagers. Chanel, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury and more leading luxury cosmetics legends are releasing grown-up glitter lipstick. It’s not quite the in-your-face sparkle of say, the broken metallic foil backstage at Simone Rocha, but it’s certainly more wearable to your Christmas Zoom party.

It’s also a lazy girl guide to beauty that looks like you made an effort, because glitter is the focus. Pair with a clean, barely-there base with lashings of mascara. These are the new glitter lipsticks to know for getting grown-up glitter lips right.

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Lips, €28

Charlotte Tilbury’s new limited edition Glowgasm lipsticks not only give a subtle sparkle and mirror shine with ingredients that plump, but it comes with a secret formula. Available in two ‘suits-you’ shades, pink Glittergasm and red Jewelgasm, there’s a ‘lip chemistry’ effect in the formula that blends with your natural lip colouring, warmth, moisture and pH level to give you a personalised lipstick shade that suits you perfectly.

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink, €35.41

Packed with oils, Chanel’s take on matte lipstick, Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion begins as a sheer stain that becomes one with the lips, but can be built up in layers to an indelible matte. It lasts for hours and comes in shades of nudes, pinks and reds and several glimmering metallics for the perfect winter wardrobe of lipsticks.
