  1. No to body shimmer! I’ll occasionally wear glitter on the eyes.

    It depends on the situation when to use body shimmer, if it’s during the summer I like to use body bling for a bronze look . If I wear a silver dress or during Christmas parties I use a shimmer for arms and legs to give it some effect .

  3. For night parties only and that too rarely .. scared that I would look like a disco ball.. 😛 😛

  4. Not really! One of those products I rarely go for!

    I wear MAC’s “To the Beach” on arms, shoulders and legs if I’m showing them on special occasions only.

    Very very rarely. And the one I do like is the Sephora Disney Jasmine one.

    My friend has a glitter bar from LUSH that she peer pressures me into wearing whenever we go out 😉

  8. I never wear body shimmer. And I’m not opposed to glitter on the eyes during Christmas, but I can’t say that I even go for that every year.

    I love a light misting of micro-shimmer across the décolletté for evenings out. I don’t like the heavy, glittery ones that seem terribly juvenile and costumey, but there are some excellent ultra-fine ones like Guerlain’s that are very pretty. My chest is still smooth, even toned, and unlined despite my 69 years so I can get away with a bit of fairy dust. I also like a bit of “adult glitter” on my eyes when the rest of my look is satin-matte. Tom Ford excels at creating it. His LE She Wolf knocked it out of the ballpark this year and many of his permanent quads (Cognac Sable, etc.) have a gorgeous glitter shade included as an evening option. So, yes, I wear shimmer and will probably do so until I drop! LOL

  10. Body glitter has always made me itch, haven’t worn it since childhood!

  11. Just say no to body glitter, unless it’s part of a (ahem) costume.

  12. Amanda

    yes! i love the disney jasmine one for special occasions!

    Oh yes I do. And I am very definitely out of my 20s :). I am dark brown (NC45 in MAC) and I own several options. I mainly use body glimmer during summer and also on nights out. I wear it on my decollete, over collarbones, tip of the shoulders, arms and legs. I love actress Nia Long’s bronzey gold look and try to emulate that.

    The ones I have do not have glitter though, it’s more of a deep gold bronze look, as if I spent a week in the Caribbean. I use one by She Australia, the tiger bronze gel by Milani, Nuxe gold oil, Scott Barnes and I would like to buy Melanie Mills Gleam.

  14. If I do want to wear something, I usually just take whatever bronzer I am wearing that day, and dust it down my neck and along my chest. Then, I take the highlighter I am wearing and dust it along my collarbone. This creates a pretty, more natural looking glow. Plus, it always looks best when your face matches your neck/chest!
