For women who love all that glitters, a sparkly evening bag is a must for any after-hour fêtes. These delicate bags are big enough for just the essentials - your keys, a cell phone and a lipstick. Add a bit of glamour to your little black dress with crystals and beads, or team your evening clutch with black pants and a silky top for an easy work-to-date ensemble. When wearing a sparkly bag, try to keep your other accessories to a minimum - just a few understated pieces, like a diamond pendant or diamond studs, will be enough glitz for any glamour gal.
What's in the bag?
Givenchy Pop Gloss Crystal
Add a little bit of sparkle to your pucker, with a non-greasy, glittery lip gloss. This one contains plumping ingredients which help to boost the amount collagen in your lips and stimulate cellular activity, so your lips will appear fuller and more vibrant. Tip: any shiny or sparkly lip gloss will help your pout appear plump - the light-reflecting properties of the glitter will give the illusion that your lips are fuller than they are. If you add a hint of gold highlight or sparkly gloss to the bow of your lips and to the centre of your bottom lip, your lips will appear full and pouty.
