~Mineral Essence Eye Shimmer Review~

Hey everyone!

This is a review on the Mineral Essence Eye Shimmer in Quartz.

Here is a bit of information from the website: For more than just a pretty face, these revolutionary formulas are blended with the breakthrough Anti-oxyzome™ technology, a fusion of powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin softer, healthier and younger-looking with each use. Choose from 18 shades of these beautiful shimmer powders.

I use this Eye Shimmer for many things such as: Eye Shadow, Eye Highlight, Face Highlight, and Body Highlight/Shimmer.

The texture of the Eye Shimmer is extremely fine and smooth. I apply it with either a brush or
my fingers.

Mineral Essence Eye Shimmer is perfect for that romantic date when you want your eyes to sparkle. The Eye Shimmer lasts for 3-4 hours without needing a touchup. However, some of the glitter will disappear over that time frame. So if you want to maintain a heavy sparkle, I would reapply after a couple of hours. If you do not tap off your brush, there can be some fallout with the glitter, which can result in a mess.

I mainly use this Eye Shimmer as an eye shadow and as a highlight underneath my brow. I will also use my Grand Kabuki Brush, and dust the Eye Shimmer along my shoulders, arms and chest for a summery shimmer! Normally, the shimmer will last on my skin for 2-3 hours.

This Eye Shimmer retails for $16.00.



Pros:
~Beautiful color/shimmer
~Multi-purpose
~Smooth/Fine texture
~Easy to use

Cons:
~It can get messy with slight glitter fallout
~Larger shifter holes

Overall, I rate the Mineral Essence Eye Shimmer at 4.5 out of 5 sugarcubes! It is a great multi-purpose product that can help you shine when you need it most!
