As New Year’s Eve approaches, many of us will use this as an excuse to get glammed up and add a bit of glitter to our lives. As women (just like magpies) we love all that sparkles.

Here are some of my favourite finds for sparkly eyeshadows, perfect for any party occasion…

5 Favourite sparkly eyeshadows perfect for New Years Eve
A featherweight eye shadow formula that instantly lights up eyes with a combination of shimmering pearls and fine sparkle. This once-limited edition fan-favorite is now a permanent part of our Eye Shadow line thanks to its crease-free, long-lasting wear and creamy-soft powder feel.


Ideal to experiment with, try on the cheeks, lips and body to create a stunning glitzy look.

Sparkly shadow goes ultra-sophisticated—with intense hues, microfine sparkle and lush, 3-D metallics.

Do you desire sophisticated sparkle? Dab Moondust Eyeshadow onto your eyes for sultry, stand out colour. When full on sparkle just feels too much, turn to Moondust to create a truly beautiful glitter eye makeup effect that’s more catwalk than moonwalk.

With super fine pigments, inset with micro-fine iridescent sparkle, create an eye effect that’s out of this world. Although Moondust feels like a cream, it goes on like a powder and is best applied with a delicate fingertip. And to turn moonshine into a super intense glitter eyeshadow, apply it wet. It’s multi-dimensional, grown-up sparkle at its best.
