South Pacific Shimmer: Up Close


Every girl has her favorite type of makeup. I love a good bronzer, almost as much as a good blush. Wait no, I care about them equally. Reason being, even if I'm running thirty minutes late and I want to look a little less like I just crawled out of bed, a quick swipe of bronzer will 9 times out of 10, do the trick. Because there are certain products that each one of us feels really is "their" key item, it's natural to stock up on those things or gravitate toward them when you're at the cosmetic counters.

Since again, for I it is bronzer, there are different qualities that I'm looking for when seeking new formulas. Typically, I enjoy a bronzer that is matte and has little to no shimmer whatsoever. I want to look naturally tan--not as though I just dipped myself in a jar of sparkles at Claire's. However, for evening it's often nice to add a bit of shimmer, as light has its own way of reflecting off of shimmer and making you appear as though you have the most ethereal skin this side of heaven. You see, I'm never opposed to that sort of skin. When this is the case, I ensure that it's not a chunky or glittery type of shimmer--and for that, Global Goddess' South Pacific Shimmer works just perfectly. Of course I was sold on the name--but the intricacy of the design was too much to pass up, and it's infused with moisturizing ingredients like aloe that my skin is always thirsty for. The shimmery silverish threading disappears after a few applications, but the powder still remains a smooth and shimmery tan in general.

Have you tried this? What's your standby go-to makeup?

I like you like matte bronzers for day time.. so whenever I see any kind of bronzing procduct I buy it just in case!

My must have product though is a thickening and lengthening mascara (nearly always hypnose).. i feel bug eyed and squinty without it!

I've been wanting to try this bronzer for a while. :)

I'm a bronzer girl too - it seriously adds about 4 hours of sleep to my face.

@ladyb: do you have any of the global goddess line? i would say that i prefer this to some of the other things i own from it..but i rarely dislike a bronzer ;)

ladyb said...

no I haven't. I saw it a few times but when I swatched it didn't scream "buy me". But I might check out the bronzer :)
