Glitter Beauty Products To Make This New Year's Eve The Glitziest Ever

These will really make you sparkle.

For years, glitter and all things sparkly were relegated to the bowels of bad '90s teen beauty trends. This wasn't the case in 2017 — the year glitter made a comeback.

So well-received was the throwback beauty trend that the term #glitterbomb became something to aspire to, and not just on New Year's Eve.
