7 Best Body Glitters

7 Best Body Glitters

Body Glitter is the best way to give your outfit an added sparkle. Use it for festivals, concerts, or even just for a night out. With so many different shimmers and shines available on the market, it's hard to know what to choose from! 

I'm Listening...

Do you want to create a bold and vibrant sparkle or a more subtle shimmer? On our list, we've included the best gel-based glitters, dust-based glitters, and even a glitter spray to give you a variety of options. 

Tell Me More!

For glitters that are dust based, you can use petroleum jelly or your favorite primer to get them to stick. Gel-based glitters are great because they tend to hold on their own, but you can't control the sparkle levels like you can with dush or spray. Body glitter spray is super quick and easy to apply, but it's a tad trickier to apply to your face. That being said, keep in mind your intended use as you review the products on our list to select the Fave best suited for you.

And, once you've picked your favorite body glitter, be sure to check out our favorite make-up brushes and primers to help with easy application!

Expert Ratings

Application

8.4 / 10

This glitter may be one of the easiest body glitters to apply on our list. It's a spray that basically applies like a hairspray. The product tends to come out a little strong at first, so make sure to test spray before you apply to skin or hair. You can use this body glitter on clothes or hair without any fear of sticking because the product easily washes out. 

This spray does not leave skin with a sticky residue. The formula is light-weight and safe to use on sensitive skin.  

Removal

8.2 / 10

This body glitter spray easily washes out of hair, clothes, and off of skin - use warm water and soap (or shampoo) and you should be sparkle free!  

Shine

8.4 / 10

This body glitter spray provides a silver shine. It's not a chunky glitter or even gel. This spray gives skin a sheer glow and is less vibrant than some of the other body glitters on our list. If you're looking for a subtle shine - this is the body glitter for you! 

Hold

8.2 / 10

If you want an all-day hold, spray some extra glitter on before leaving the house. While this body glitter spray does have a solid grip, it can be brushed off and fade throughout the day/night.

  • Easy application

The Snazaroo Face and Body Glitter Dust truly shines and works to accentuate any look. The glitter is fine, yet has a strong gleam to it. This body glitter works great with paint, gels, or primers. 

This product is glitter dust - it's not gel or water-based - so you will need an additional product to make it stick! 

Expert Ratings

Application

9.4 / 10

Application is made super easy with the Snazaroo Glitter Dust. You can either use your finger or a brush and combine the dust with any face/body paint or gel. Using a glitter gel will enhance the vibrancy of the shine.

Use this glitter dust for costumes, face paint, to enhance make-up, or just to give your skin an added shimmer! This dust applies lightly, is fragrance-free, and non-irritating. 

Removal

9.3 / 10

Removal is simple. Remember that this body glitter is dust, not a gel. The actual glitter dust comes off easily with soap and water.

What you combine it with (face paint, gel, etc.) may make removal a little more complicated. In this case, a gentle make-up remover or pad should do the trick!

Shine

9.4 / 10

This glitter dust is available in four vibrant colors. It gives skin a beautiful sheen. You only need a little to achieve an all-day shimmer. 

Hold

9.2 / 10

This glitter dust will hold as well as your gel or paint holds. The glitter dust itself won't stick to skin, so make sure you're using a glimmer gel or a face paint that has an all-day hold.
