Hey Boys and Girls (but mostly girls, but we don’t discriminate, but we know our audience, but not personally so feel free to drop us a line)!
It’s Tuesday Birchbox Review Day! Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!
Today’s review on Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer will a little all over the place. Why? Because I don’t get it. Liquid luminizer does not work for me. It comes across looking really out of place and really enforces just how big my pores are. I never notice them, and then once I put liquid luminizer on my face – BAM! Pores the size of moon craters.
But today, before I rushed out of my house to be only moderately late for work, I thought I’d give it one more try. I trust Stila as a brand. They wouldn’t do me wrong. So what am I doing wrong?? USING IT ON MY FACE!!!!! I get it now. Stila ALL OVER Liquid Luminizer. Think outside of the cheeks! Eyes! Lips! Collarbones! Guys – you should see me today. I am one big ball of glow.
When I need a little glow on my face, I tend to go for the Laura Mercier shimmer powder if I’m feeling rich, or Maybelline loose shimmer powder if I’ve run out of glow toward the end of a pay period. The powder sits on my cheeks a little nicer. I read somewhere that if you use liquid foundation, you should use a liquid blush, and a powder blush if you use a powder foundation. I’m sure someone with science behind them did that research, but for my own face (which apparently is an anomaly) I mix it up – liquid foundation, powder blush, powder bronzer/luminizer.
