My Experience with Colorbar Metallics Body Shimmer Miss Reflective
Packaging: It comes in a subtle and a sophisticated packaging. It has this silver metallic cap on the top with a transparent container. It has a puff inside which is used to dust the shimmer on the necessary areas.
If you don’t opt for the puff, you can twist open the container and apply the shimmer/highlighter using a brush or even your fingers.
Shade, Texture, and Pigmentation: It’s a bronzy golden shade. In the container, you can see a bronzy golden shade but when applied to the face and body it gives a beautiful glittery look with no color, hence a highlighter. It’s a soft and very light powder dust which sticks up on the skin perfectly!
Fragrance: A very mild fragrance.
Staying power: A very long lasting shimmer powder which stays for DAYS. It can even last a shower and the glitter might still shimmer on the face when hitting the light. Therefore do not apply a lot of it. Just one dab and you’ll have plenty of illumination.
Experience: I had purchased this for my college fest.
Since I’m not into the liquid illuminators that much, I liked this powdery one from the moment the salesgirl dabbed it on my hand. The highlighter is golden-toned but once on the skin, it gives the transparent shimmers and glitters wherever applied.
It lasts really long and sticks up on the skin. It brings that glamorous look and is perfect for night occasions and events. The puff applicator makes the whole deal even better. It’s really easy to apply and dab on the required areas. Its classy packaging is also something which builds its goodwill.
It has one flaw that it flies here and there while applying, creating a bit of mess. But it works well for me so ya, no problems!
It highlights the highest points of the face and doesn’t give an artificial look rather a radiant look. I once used it over my eyeshadow for a smoky glitter look and it looked perfect. Also, it can be worn as a bronzer but haven’t tried yet. Let me know in the comments section below if you have.
