My motto for holiday makeup this year: Make it metallic. (Alternately, throw some glitter on it.) The new limited-edition Wet n Wild Color Icon Loose Pigments will help you, me, and all the metallic lovers in between fulfill this holiday makeup fantasy for just $2.99. Yes, you can glitz your beauty routine for less than what it costs to buy a peppermint mocha. The pigments are part of Wet n Wild's limited-edition holiday collection, which launched this month. The Wet n Wild Color Icon Loose Pigments come in four shades with playful names: Heart of Rose Gold (you guessed it, rose gold), King Fu Lightning (light gold), Ride On My Copper (yup, copper), Dom & Cherry On Top (bronze).

The superaffordable pigments, which come in mess-free shakers, are amazingly versatile. The most obvious use: eye shadow. They apply smoothly onto lids with a shadow brush (or your fingertip) to give your eyelids a metallic finish with no annoying fall out. I like to wet an angled liner brush before dipping it into some of the rose gold pigment on the back of my hand to create a foiled liner. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can create your own metallic lipstick with a bit of clear gloss. And, of course, these shimmery pigments also make for great highlighters, too. I recommend brushing some on the tops of your cheeks with a fluffy contour brush to make sure the pigment disperses evenly onto your skin.
