Sparklicity Shimmer Dust Review

This is actually a really quick review since there's not much to say about it.

There are actually two different Shimmer Dusts that are part of Tarina Tarantino's Sparklicity line. One is called Shimmer Dust and the other is Gold Shimmer Dust. I decided that I prefer iridescent sparkles over gold sparkles so I bought Sparklicity Shimmer Dust.

According to Sephora's website, it is a pure-refraction glitter for body and hair. This luxe finishing touch is made from an Italian formula called reflex, which delivers pure glitter without base or binder.

It comes in a really cute glass bottle with a pink bulb pump, very reminiscent of an old perfume spray bottle. (The Gold Shimmer Dust comes with a gold bulb.) It contains 0.42 oz/12 gr of product, which is a decent size, to me.

When you press the bulb, a fine mist of the powder is dispersed.

Sorry, I had difficulty taking a good picture of the pretty sparkles

I think that because my bottle is new, not a whole lot of product came out. When I tested it at Sephora, a good amount of the powder came out in one pump. I needed to pump it a few times to get decent coverage. The sparkles are very fine glitter, which I like much better than chunkier glitters. I also think that it's better if you are wearing lotion on the area of your body in which you will be spraying for staying power.

It's a nice touch for an evening out, especially during this holiday season.

As a side note, I may not be posting too regularly for the next several weeks. My son is home for the holidays so it depends on how busy we are. If he ends up spending a lot of time out with his friends, then I will have lots of time to post. Until then, happy holidays to all of our dear and wonderful readers!

Happy holidays Kat!

I was eyeing on this to... but it's kinda out of my budget. But now you're making me want it even more! LOL

@Rica--Happy Holidays to you too! I think that it's well worth it since you don't use a whole lot of product so it should last you a long time. Plus, it's something that you would use only for going out and not everyday use. I'm really loving it!

The brush roll is super cute and I wish we had Tarina Tarantino here in the UK. I will never forget your kindness.

Merry Christmas!
Take care, ^__^.x.

@Kei Kei--Thank you, Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones too. Please let me know if there's anything you want that you can't get in UK. I'd be happy to help you out.

OMG i remember trying this at sephora~
after doing my friend's make up i wanted to lightly mist her face with the fine glitters but gave her a glitter mustache instead XD

@Steph--LOL! I keep on forgetting that I have this so I never use it! I must remember to use it the next time I go out to someplace nice.
