Back in July last year, MAC Cosmetics asked their Facebook…
Some people say you can’t wear shimmer past a certain age or with a certain skin type. I say screw them, shimmer makes the world go ’round!
Now I’ve been eyeing The Body Shop Shimmer Waves ($22 CAD) blush palettes for a few years, but I thought it would be too shimmery on me. I finally took the plunge during a major sale and I couldn’t be happier!
What first struck me about the design is that it almost mimics the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, with maybe a bit less shimmer.
But if I want to swirl and blend all the colours together, I just use a nice soft kabuki brush like this one…
Can we just take a moment to admire how adorable the new Smoky Poppy Blush Brush is? It’s only $15 CAD and soft as petals.
I am pretty much in love with my new Shimmer Waves palette, and I think I may pick up the bronze shade for in the summer. And the brush? Well, it’s almost too cute to use (but I can’t resist using it, it’s so soft!)
HAVE YOU TRIED SHIMMER WAVES BEFORE? HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO THE BOBBI BROWN VERSION?
