Finally! Shimmer Has Become EXTREME!


Oh lordy. If you even vaguely know me, then you know I'm obsessed with anything containing glitter or shimmer. I even make my own glitter lotion with obscene amounts of loose glitter so I can wear a ton of glitter all over my bod constantly. Honestly? I'd live in glitter, if it was socially acceptable.

So when I saw Physicians Formula had come out with an Extreme Shimmer eye collection, I pretty much has a seizure of delight.

I have to admit, the packaging was what caught my eye first.  I was literally at a drugstore with my fiancĂ©, ran off because I saw something shiny (I know, I know...) in the makeup department, and it was love at first sight.

I've always been a Physicians Formula girl--their products are amazing and though they're on the pricier end of drugstore makeup, they're also quite a bit cheaper than what you'd find at makeup counters in department stores.  The brand really caters to those of us who want great quality in our makeup, but don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of cash on it.

With the new Extreme Shimmer collection (I absolutely love the idea of shimmer somehow being "extreme"), I decided to try out one of the eyeshadow palettes. I went with the nude palette, rather than the smoky one, simply because warmer colors tend to look better on my skin. That said, chances are I'll be purchasing the other one in the very near future.

Since I knew the shimmer was, in fact, probably going to be extreme, I waited to use it for a night out.  Hey, even a shimmer enthusiast like me doesn't bust out too much glitter during the daytime!

I absolutely loved the shadows. The amount of shimmer was perfect--my eyelids didn't look disco ball ish, but they had a distinct shimmery glow to them. Also, since the colors are on the lighter side, it's hard to overdo it. I layered on about four different shades for depth and it still didn't look like I used a ridiculously crazy amount of makeup.

Each fabulous palette is $11.95. You can find it in most drugstores or purchase it online at the Physicians Formula website.

Get your glitter on, gals!
