Synonyms of "Glisten" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between glisten and glitter and gloss and gleam ?
A: Context is key with these words. Bravo on such a good question! Just a tad... difficult to answer. Very thought provoking.
When speaking of eyes, "glisten" might describe the presence of good/bad tears, "glitter" could mean they sparkle happily, "gloss over" means they are either filling with tears or unfocused or both, and "gleam" means expressively joyful.
With lights, "glisten" refers to the light cast or reflected on snow or dew or rain or tears, "glitter" means the reflection of light shifts as you move and can be interchanged with sparkle, "gloss" is a solid reflective coating (solid as in unbroken, not as in hard), and "gleam" expresses a warm glow.
For the most part, these words are interchangeable, and all are closely related. In context each gives just a slightly (and I mean SLIGHTLY) different picture.
