Review & Swatcheroonies: Stargazer Powder Shimmer

I've never been one for shimmery body products because I feel that they look just a touch too much but when I was sent this little bottle to have a play around with, I got a bit carried away. The new Stargazer Powder Shimmer is a handy product to have when you want a little glitz, glam and sparkle before a night out and if used in the right places, it can literally make you glow - Not in the dark, obviously.

This what it looks like:
Similar to the shape of Stargazer nail polishes, the Powder Shimmer has an uber cute vintage-esque feel to it with it's diffuser pump thingymajiggy - You gotta love my technical terms.

Inside the bottle is a very fine silver-white shimmer which can be applied everywhere from your face to your body. When I first saw the product I didn't think I was going to like it as much as I do because anything shimmery and glittery always makes me wary. Seriously, some people get glitter all wrong and think chunky sparkles work - They don't. The only place where chunky glitters are allowed are in nail polish and anywhere else is just all kinds of wrong.
Okay, so the close up photo doesn't really sell the product but it was the best photo I could get of the shimmer without blurring them out because I was too close or not close enough. I was actually quite impressed with the fact that they didn't really fly off in all directions when I pumped the thingymajiggy nor did they flutter off after waving my arm around for 30 seconds to see if they would budge. In fact, they stayed on my arm for a good few hours without transferring on to my clothes too so major kudos to Stargazer.
I can imaging this shimmer powder looking really good on gorgeous tanned skin before a night out so now all I need is a tan and I'll be set!

The Stargazer Shimmer Powder is priced at £5 and is available now from the website or have a look in your local New Look stores.

What do you think? Are you feeling shimmery or is it just a touch too much?

Until next time..

16 stiletto lovers had something to say::

  1. That is the cutest most vintage boudoir looking bottle of glitter I have ever seen. Straight on the wish list for Christmas. This has New Years Eve written allover it! xxx

  2. I'm the same with body glitter, it used to be fun when I was a kid, but not so much now.
    However I love this little vintage perfume bottle style container, how cute :)

  3. Really, really cute!

    Think it'd be ideal for a teenager's Crimbo gift?

    I'm a little auld (33) to be doing sparkly Edward Cullen impressions ;)

  4. Everything about this is so pretty, but I can't ever imagine having a use for it now my best ravin' days are behind me!

  5. Love it! I like a good shimmer once in a while and this packaging is too cute!

  6. I do use glitter, but I have a very distinct 'disco' style (I wouldn't wear it with regular/modern clothing). Shimmer is much more wearable with regular style clothing, I am really impressed at the packaging too, considering it's quite a bargain!

  7. i love this, such a cool concept and so feminine too xx
