The Metallic-Makeup Hall Of Fame

Thanks to the holidays, our magpie tendencies are in overdrive. It seems like everywhere we look, there's some new sparkly thing to stare at, slack-jawed and drooling. We wish we weren't so easily distracted by shiny things, but they're pretty and we just can't look away.
It doesn't help that the sparkly stuff is so versatile — you can go all-out glam by applying metallic all over one feature, or add it as a subtle accent for a layer of cool-girl intrigue. Because we have a sneaking suspicion that you're just as entranced by the razzle-dazzle as we are, we rounded up the best of the best in metallic makeup. These are the shiny, happy beauty buys that make gilding your lids, tips, and lips easy and fun.
Read on to discover which picks earned spots in our Metallic-Makeup Hall of Fame, and then say it with us: "Ooh, shiny!"
