Extreme Glimmers Collection
Beatiful colors, however....
I really like this product. I bought it because I love shimmery eyes but I am also 31yrs old and don't need to look like I am going through my midlife crisis haha. The shadows are a little different than any other shadow I have received from bare minerals, it is thicker with glittery chucks kind of. Bad description but I don't know how else to explain it. If you use these I recommend doing your eyes first and then the rest of your make-up (the way you are actually supposed to do your make-up anyways) because your whole face will be glittery. If you add a lot and just keep blending it in it actually is very beautiful and not too glittery for a woman in her prime and all ;) The only thing I don't care for is I do feel the need to add a lot because as I am blending it will all fall off my eye. I have found if I apply a thicker amount and not blend to much it is better and definitely use primer or the 5 in 1.
Other people have said that you can see the chunks of glitter. Well, they've only looked at it in the pot. It is shiny not glittery and once you smooth it on it has more of a foil effect. Knowing that, start out lightly and build from there. There is no glitter. If the foil effect is too strong for you you can just smooth over a light matte color to tone it down. I absolutely love these colors. They are definitely for date night and not the PTA meeting.
Really nice set!
I love the colors in this set! Never tried greens or browns, but Moss has opened a new door for me. My go-to colors are pinks and plums, so this set has me covered there as well. Other reviews said glitter is too chunky, but I have found you can avoid that by pressing and rubbing the color into the container lid before applying to eyes... This makes it go on smooth and shimmery. This can be perfect for daytime or office use, or leave it chunky for nights out.
Love love love
These glimmers are gorgeous. Probably a little too flashy for everyday office use- but for anything else it's great! Great kit with versatile colors, great brush, and lid primer, which is essential for long wear and to prevent creasing. I love this kit and so happy with the purchase. The colors apply nicely. I live the vanilla and plum. They have a pretty tone and great shine to them. Chunkier finish than the regular glimmers. Great for a fun night out!
this definitallly isn't an everyday set of eyeshadows. Perfect for going out, holidays, and new years eve. very pigmented and very sparkly. the brown shade is very pretty and versatile
Too much chunky glitter
I love shimmer, but this is full of chunky glitter - - big enough to see, as soon as you open the jar. Colours are okay, especially Moss...Vanilla Sugar can easily get too frosty looking if you apply too much.
I like the little brush that comes with it, and always like Prime Time, but that's pretty much all I like about this set. Wish I hadn't bought it without seeing it in person!
