Creating Gilded would be impossible withoutwith out these generous donors and sponsors.
The idea for Lit started back in 2001 when Jodie Perks, the brainchild behind Lit Cosmetics, began slinging drinks in the hottest clubs across the city of Calgary. Having always been a fan of fun makeup and all things that go "bling, bling" is why this glitter line was BORN, and this is how it happened.
After shopping around, Jodie was surprised to see that there were no decent glitter products to be found, so she knew it was time to take these “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 developed a whole new application method that stays in place, is comfortable, and keeps the brilliant glitter shine. Since 2002, Lit Cosmetics is now not only a bar-star product, but has grown into a makeup that can be worn by anyone of any age at anytime.
