Top Shiny Snapchat Filters & Lenses

Snapchat is a camera app that doubles as a social networking platform. Available for both iOS and Android, it allows you to share photos and videos with just a few taps! If you want, you can even make it so that these ‘snaps’ will disappear once they’re viewed.

That’s not all, you can also customize your snaps with music, doodles, text, and more. Filters are another option for those who want to make things a little fancier. Depending on what you choose, they can dramatically change the look of your photo or video. For instance, some will change the background while others will add interactive elements to the screen. Of course, those are just two examples. There are way more effects that you can choose from and that’s exactly why it’s so fun. We’re not kidding, there are literally thousands of options!

Our 10 Favorite Snapchat Filters & Lenses

Do you like shiny things? Because those are the kinds of filters that we’ll be sharing on this page. And remember, you can use them for videos too. If anything, that’s what some of these effects are designed for. That way, you can actually see the shininess on the screen.

Anyway, here are the snapcodes:

1. Shiny Bubbles Snapchat Filter

Scan the snapcode above and bubbles will appear! They’ll be floating slowly toward the ceiling and if you look closely, you’ll see all the colors of the rainbow. That’s not all, the light will also make it look as if they’re glowing! You can see what I mean above.

By default, everything will be black and white except for the bubbles but you can always ‘turn the colors back on’ by tapping on the screen. Do that, and it’ll give your snap a dreamy vibe. Did I also mention that it’ll change your appearance? Not only will your skin be smoother, but your eyes will be shinier as well. You’ll also be wearing some fake lashes!

2. Shiny Animals Snap Chat Filter

Turn yourself into a magical animal with this filter! If anything, you just have to scan the snapcode. Once you do that, tons of sparkles will come up on the screen and of course, they’ll all be animated. As for you, you’ll be a shiny mouse!

You’ll get a pair of rainbow-colored ears and a matching nose will appear on your face! Your eyes will also be bubblier. And if you don’t want to be a mouse, you can be a bunny instead! Simply tap on the screen and your ears will automatically change. They’ll still be super colorful and shiny, but they’ll be a lot longer than before.

3. Shiny Pretzels Snapchat Lens

Do you like pretzels? What if I told you that you can wear them like glasses? Because that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do with this filter. Activate the effect and a pair of shiny glasses will appear on your face and get this—the frames will literally be two giant pretzels!

They won’t have lenses in the traditional sense but they will have holes so that you can see through them. And as you can see from the screenshot, they’ll be salted! At least that’s what it looks like. In any case, it’d make for a funny selfie! I mean, when was the last time you wore something like that on your face?

4. Magical Walk Snapchat Filter

Why wear regular shoes when you can wear magical shiny shoes? For those who are interested, check out the snapcode. Scan it with your camera and it’ll tell you to point the device at your feet. Follow the instructions and the effect will automatically activate!

A pair of virtual sneakers will appear on your feet and as you can see from the example, they’ll be super colorful. There will be butterflies flying around the shoes as well. Shiny butterflies—or rather, their silhouettes. To capture the full effect, be sure to take a video!

5. Doggy Disco Snap Chat Lens

Disco party, anyone? Because that’s the vibe you’ll get with this snap filter. The second you scan the snapcode, a giant disco ball will appear at the top. Look toward the bottom and you’ll see colorful lights, which will change colors as the ball spins around.

As for you, you’ll be wearing a pair of groovy-looking shades. If you have a friend, you can invite them into your snap as well. Make sure they’re inside the frame and they’ll get the same shades as you. That way, you guys can party together. Check out the example that we’ve posted above!

6. Bokeh Bunny Snapchat Filter

Add this filter to your snap and you’ll get a pair of bunny ears! They’ll be pink and fluffy with a shiny rim. You’ll even get a matching nose! And it might not be obvious from the example, but your eyes will also be a bit bigger and shinier. Oh, and your lashes will be longer as well!

As for the background, let’s just say that there will be sparkles floating around everywhere. Given that, it’s probably best to take a video as opposed to a photo. That way, you’ll be able to show your friends just how shiny the effect is! Of course, you can also use it for a selfie.

7. Metal Hot Dog Snapchat Filter

What if there was a hot dog floating in midair? A metallic hot dog? Cause guess what? That’s what will appear if you use this filter. Simply scan the snapcode and one will appear in front of you! You don’t have to do anything except hold the camera up.

As soon as the camera turns on, the hot dog will appear in all of its metallic glory. It’ll even come with metallic ketchup! Who knew that was a thing? You can rotate it with your fingers too if you want a better look at its shininess. I mean, it’s a metallic hot dog!

8. Glitter Mask Snapchat Lens

Who says you can’t be fashionable with a face mask? If anything, this filter is an example of that! Scan the snapcode and a shiny glitter mask will appear on your face. You’ll even get a pair of matching ears, which will appear at the top of your head! Just look at the example above.

And for those who are wondering, yes, you can take the mask off. To do that, just open your mouth. The next thing you know, the mask will slide down to your chin. Also, you’ll be wearing makeup! There will also be a little black nose on your face (which you won’t be able to see unless you take off the mask).

9. Golden Sequin Ears Snap Chat Filter

Are you a Disney fan? Missing a certain theme park? Then this filter is for you! Scan the snapcode and a pair of familiar-looking ears will appear on your head. There will even be a bow in the center and everything will be covered in shiny sequins!

Your eyes will also be a light blue color. Not to mention that your lashes will be longer! And for those of you who are planning on taking a video, you’ll be happy to know that the filter also comes with a voice-changer so you can have fun with that too.

10. Glitter Mouth Snapchat Filter

Want to have super shiny teeth? Like the ones from those toothpaste commercials? If so, check out this filter because that’s literally what it’ll do—give you shiny teeth. And all you have to do is scan the snapcode. Before you know it, the camera will turn on.

Smile your best smile and it’ll look something like the example above. As you can see, there will be shiny sparkles everywhere and yes, it’ll just be your mouth on the screen! The rest of your face won’t be visible at all. It’s definitely a little on the weird side, but hey, might as well go with it.

11. Sparkling Beard Snapchat Filter

Want to know what you’d look like with a beard? Then scan the snapcode above! Make sure that you’re facing the camera and it’ll automatically work its magic. Before you know it, you’ll have a fancy mustache and beard. And by fancy, we mean shiny.

There will literally be sparkles coming out of your facial hair! In fact, you can see them in the screenshot above. You’ll also be wearing a pair of glasses—ones with a shiny gold frame. You can take them off, though, if you don’t like that particular look. You’ll still look amazing with just the mustache and beard.

12. Glitter Gold Snapchat Filter

This filter will literally cover your face with gold glitter! The top of your face, anyway, and the effect’s animated in that some of the glitter will actually be falling from your face. More specifically, from your eye area.

Speaking of which, you’ll also be wearing makeup. It might be hard to tell, though, with all the glitter on your face. And if you look behind you, you’ll see a red curtain. If anything, it only makes the glitter stand out that much more!
