All That Shimmers
Thursday July 26, 2012
Some shimmery makeup I’ve been using quite often lately. Both I received from Yesstyle:
Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color Mystic Rose
Use a single color or create your own original favorite color by mixing the shades. Moist Powder Base enhances clear color development and a long-lasting pearly sheen. A blend of highly transparent oil-mix and Clear Sliding Powder helps color to retain a dewy, glossy finish.
Part of the Spring 2012 line, I was most interested in the highlighter. I had tried it on at a Duty Free shop before purchasing. At first I was unimpressed but also the salesperson wouldn’t let me apply it to my liking. I went ahead and ordered it anyway and am so glad I did!
My first thought for this highlighter was that it’s really great for paler skintones.
It shows up marvelously!
For me it’s an all-season highlighter given how many color options you have in one palette. It goes on subtle but can be easily built up to a very glamorous glow! It’s somewhere between shimmery and glittery. So I would say it’s a twinkling highlighter. Most of the outside roses are shimmery pearl based while the main center rose has the most sparkle. The top left rose is somewhere in between the two. So you can choose the texture you want for that day. I just love them altogether though. :deco9:
And because it’s Anna Sui the palette smells of sweet roses of course.
Dolly Wink Cream Gold Eye Shadow
Cream based Dolly Wink gold shimmer shadow. I try to stay away from cream shadows because they crease on me easily even when using an eye shadow primer. However since this one was more glitter and shimmer based I wanted to give it a try. Well I love it too! It doesn’t often crease and the shimmer is so vibrant! And because it’s a cream there’s no fall out of glitter specs. :deco3:
