- How To Use
Simply sweep Shimmer Down over whatever you want to de-shine: eyes, cheeks, face. Layer it a little at a time to go from low-glow to matte.
I was excited by the idea of this product, and in fact I still am; it is just the reality that disappoints. I have numerous eyeshadows that are a bit too shimmery and shiny for daywear but I love the colors. After applying the shadow to my eyelid, I used a soft brush to sweep some of the shimmer down to turn down the shimmer a bit. What happened? Nothing except now I look like I am wearing eyeshadow with a coating of baby powder on my eyes. Save your money, or better yet, find some nice matte shades.
Love it! I actually use it under my eyes after I have applied all my makeup. It just seems to be the finishing touch! I also use it to tone down the shimmering eye shadows I have -- works perfectly. Try it, you will love it!!
Wonderful for a poreless look!
This product may be intended to take down the shimmer of eyeshadows, but it a great finsihing touch to your face if you like a soft, poreless, matte look. Use the brush recommended for this product as a little goes a long way.
I like this product: it does work for me helping to tone down my shiny face and take back the shimmer out of some eyeshadows...but I want to say that if you have super glittery or metallic product on and expect this to completely transform your look into a solid, flat matte one, you're expecting too much from this. It does tone down the glitz to a degree and does help with shiny skin, but it is not a miracle worker.
