FACTS & FIGURES
These sparkling face shimmers come in a pot containing 12g of loose powder. I got the shades Egyptian Bronze and Gilded Peach. It is also available in Fairy Dust, Shimmering Sand and Star Light.

Shimmers in adorable boxes! Do I fall in love with the insides too?

MY OPINION
Luscious recently launched these beautifully-packaged multi-purpose face shimmers. I simply adore the boxes they come in.
The moment I received them, I swatched them and fell in love with the miniscule shiny particles. They were like silk on my face. Egyptian Bronze is an amazing gold-ish bronze. Gilded Peach is a soft peach, that makes my face look naturally glowy. They are not at all grainy or chunky and blend easily on the face. The pigmentation is pretty great too. It has a tendency to emphasize pores so it is better to avoid layering it too much.
This face shimmer can be used as a highlighter, bronzer, blush and even an eyeshadow. Egyptian Bronze turned out to be a gorgeous eye colour. I mostly use ­Gilded Peach as a highlighter or blush and Egyptian Bronze as a bronzer.
To highlight your features with Luscious Sparkling Face Shimmers, catch some shimmer on a stippling or tapered highlighter brush and swipe it across the places where the light hits on your face. Possible highlighting places could be the bridge of the nose, cheek bones, brow bone, temples, inner tear duct and cupid’s bow.
I personally love applying it on my cheeks for everyday makeup to give a summery glow.

RATING
Frankly these have become a part of my on-the-go makeup products. Not to forget that they are priced cheaply, making them all the more reachable.

    1. Hey! You can use your regular blush brush. Take out some loose powder in the cap, dip your brush it it, shake off the excess and apply it over your cheeks. You can press the bristles in your hand to contour with the same brush. :)

    1. Thank you! Yes they are well pigmented with good colour pay off. The pink colour is the blush and the highlighted part over it is the face shimmer. Sorry for the confusion! :)
