Yes, I’m picturing an invisible factory staffed by thousands of flittering fairies who crush precious gems with tiny magic hammers.
This, because of the new $28 Fairy Dust Eye Shimmers by Laura Mercier.
I’m also thinking, “Ooh, shimmer!” 🙂
As it turns out, these loose eyeshadows are more shimmery than glittery — like powdered pearls — so if you want bigger bits of bling, steer your tush toward Urban Decay, or somewhere else with mounds of glitter.
To use these, there’s a flat, wide brush attached to the bottom of the twist-off cap. Just swipe the brush, which should already be loaded with pigment, directly on your lids.
You can wear them on their own, blended with other shadows, or use ’em as like a sparkly topcoat, by layering them on top of an already finished eye look.
No, really. There’s a cooling sensation on my skin from these finely milled shimmers. I don’t know how or why that’s possible, but it is.
You know the Pixi Fairy Dust powder pigments? The ones that are $10? These are like fancy-pants versions.
Have a look and maybe a swatch next time you visit Sephora. There are five shades for $28 each.
