10 Sparkly Beauty Products Today's Kids Are Missing Out On — PHOTOS
All things '90s are coming back, but not even one of the biggest It-girl trends of the day can resurrect our favorite defunct beauty lines from back then. Alas, there are so many sparkly beauty products today's kids are missing out on. That said, in this new age where strobing reigns supreme and highlighting palettes are all the rage, I'd wager that it's about time for '90s-level glitter makeup to make its big comeback — and maybe once the trends come back, some of the discontinued brands will follow! (A woman can dream, anyway).
Either way, it's fun to reminisce over all the best glitter products from the '90s — after all, there were so many to choose from, from the all ultra-shiny frosted lipsticks, to the body glitters that got everywhere , to all those sweet-smelling sparkly lotions that you frankly kind of overused.
Some of the items on the list below were veritable sleepover staples — you couldn't watch Clueless at a slumber party without pulling out the tiny Bon Bons nail polishes and your favorite Bath and Body Works glitter sprays now, could you? With all that in mind, let's take a look at some of the best and brightest glittery '90s makeup brands.

LBR, the Bath and Body Works entire Art Stuff line was all HG.
2. Bath and Body Works Art Stuff Hair Spray
