We’re going to guess that the last time you had glitter on your lips was when you tried eating your macaroni craft project in kindergarten. Which is a shame, seeing as glitter is kind of the best thing to happen to the beauty world since the invention of mascara…more or less. Like, look at that model’s face—she looks cool as hell, right?

Hey, we’re not trying to pressure you here, but if you don’t try a glittery, shimmery lipstick during your next night out, you’re officially the worst, and you can’t sit with us.

We’re living in a season of sparkly eyeshadows, black lipstick, and blue hair—why not throw a little glitter on your lips this weekend, too?

Just swipe on a glitter-packed lipstick for a subtle one-and-done shimmer, or press some finely-milled loose glitter over your favorite lipstick for a supremely sparkly look. The world (of glitter) is your oyster, so please, for the love of all things pretty, take advantage of it. Keep reading to see our favorite glitter lipsticks, along with some major glitter inspo to get you started.
