Glitter Everywhere!

VS LotionOne of this season’s hottest trends is glitter, everywhere, especially in makeup, but also, all over the body.  Allure magazine asserts that glitter will become your new best friend this season!  In fact, Huda Kattan, the founder of Huda Beauty, had the following to say about the glitter trend, “It’s going to be less of a trend and more of a necessity. It’s just something that every woman is going to be getting into in some way, shape, or form. We see it on nails and hair on social media, but it’s going to make its way to the average woman, because I see normal women who don’t usually play with makeup squealing when they see glitter.” (If you would like to read more about Allure‘s hottest trend predictions, click here for the full article).

I chose to showcase the above-pictured Victoria’s Secret Shimmer Lotion because it is not so overtly “glittery”.  While full-on glitter may be on trend right now, it may be too much for everyday life.  However, these lotions from Victoria’s Secret strike that perfect balance between glitter and glow.  It’s great for both the office and a night out.  You can choose how much that you want to apply on your skin.  As you can see, they come in a variety of scents.  I chose these three:  Amber Romance, Pure Seduction, and Love Spell.  All of the various scents were wonderful, these were just the ones that appealed to me most.

Regardless of how you apply this season’s glitter trend (and if you do), I hope that you do it in a way that fits you best.  I am hoping that I present a modified version of the glitter trend so that everyone may feel like that can participate in this fun trend without being too over the top (if that’s not your style).

  1. I am so going to just roll around in a bunch of glitter!! I love living out the inner girl fantasies, so any trend that comes along allowing me to do so without funny looks is a trend I can get on board with! I’m thinking of doing the hair glitter thing, although it seems like a nightmare to get out at the end of the day!

    1. I know, i love it! What a great trend. These Victoria Secret lotions have shimmer in them so the transfer to clothing, in my experience, has been minimal. You may look down and see a little piece of glitter on your arm every now and then, even after a shower, but the transfer to clothing is pretty negligible because it’s not pure glitter.


  2. Looks like a fun trend .But a good balance will needed for the glow look.I like looking at glitter but prefer glowing myself

  3. I agree, I think its definitely one of those recurring summer trends because of what it can do for the skin! I feel it helps to illuminate it and give that nice glow, especially when it’s infused into a cream form, like the VS one you’ve shard above. Although I love the way it looks on the nails, I just don’t have the patience for taking them off, it’s such a struggle! I definitely look forward to wearing some glitter on my legs this summer, though! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having an amazing day so far!



  4. These are perfect when you’re doing swim shoots because you want that healthy glow to your skin and well let’s face it, sweating it out doesn’t quite achieve the same effect right? Haha!

  5. Lolol I always say I was dropped in a jar of glitter as a baby so I m shinning…You too keep shinning 🙂

  6. I love this! Glitter has ALWAYS been on trend for me lol! I put glitter everywhere I possibly can. It’s so gorgeous, especially on the body in the summer! I am definitely going to try these lotions out. I have a bunch of the bath and body works glitter sprays and can’t get enough of those. Thanks for sharing doll!

    Xoxo, Alethea
