Jodie Perks, Founder of Lit Cosmetics 

The idea for Lit started in 2001 when Jodie Perks was slinging drinks at Calgary, Canada’s hottest nightclubs. She was always a fan of fun makeup and all things ‘bling’, but was unsatisfied with the glitter makeup products available. She knew she had to take glitter matters into her own hands.

Long hours turning into weeks, then into months of testing in her top-secret glitter dungeon, evaluating all the pros and cons, she exposed a number of flaws; the most obvious being the application process, comfort, and staying power.

With time and determination, Jodie has developed (and perfected) a collection of products and an application method that stays in place, is comfortable and keeps the brilliant glitter shine. Lit Cosmetics has grown from its bar-star roots into the go-to glitter beauty brand for celebrity make-up artists and cosmetic enthusiasts worldwide.

    Why Lit is Different

    "No glitter, no glory" is our motto. Fun, yet true. Lit simply specializes in glitter/loose color makeup which is known as = "glitterology" (the science of glitter). With our liquid adhesive now perfected, we have broken down our loose color into 4 different sizes and 4 different varieties. 

    Remember: There are no rules when it comes to Lit! From a single color highlighter to having a 10 shade blend over your shadows - we dare you. Let the fun begin, and your creativity soar!


    Other than wanting to "glitter the world" it has always been our dream to change the way people perceive or think about glitter makeup. Our vision was to create a top-quality, sexy new makeup line unlike any other, that was fun, exciting, easy to use, and suitable for everyone. Whether it's a day at the office or a special night out, glitter is the perfect compliment to your look. Get noticed, get confident - get Lit!


    Hello fellow Lit Chicks (and we can't forget about those Lit Dudes out there), it is now time to have fun and be creative with your makeup, accessories, and style, and to realize that girls just want to have fun (as Cyndi Lauper preached to us in the '80s). We've all finally come to the realization that indeed life is way too short to be boring or to simply be bored. Don't be one of those girls who say, "Oh, that looks great on her but I could never pull it off." You know who you are - break through and be bold, be beautiful!

    This next bit of information may sound a little odd but it's true: glitter is good for the soul! Something happens when you add a little glitter to your day. It gives you a smile, good energy and simply pumps you up and makes you feel glam, bam, thank you, ma'am!

    So give Lit Cosmetics a try and enjoy everything you get out of it. My final piece of advice for you is to stay young and try not to take things so seriously all the time. So “Get Lit” and always remember, "No Glitter, No Glory!"
