Blog Special & Clearance Foundies & Shimmer!!!

Today's Blog Special

Then, we also have more Clearance items up! Mostly Oops Foundation and some all purpose shimmers. The all purpose shimmers are made from a basic base similar to our foundation ingredients that we tweaked to make into popular colors you can use for glows/blushes, eyelid washes, or body shimmer (like mix in with your lotion or sunscreen for an extra special glow!) They aren't quite Limited Edition as we did not make them intentionally (as we have creatively planned our other LE Collections) but made colors with extras of what we had and suspected we weren't going to use up anytime soon and a couple were Oops Shimmer Blushes. (Reserved was an Oops for Tenderness Shimmer Blush which is why it isn't quite as sparkly as the rest of them).

As with the previous Oops foundies, they will come in a baggie with about 8 grams of product. The Shimmers (not Shimmer Blush because they are made to really use as "all purpose") will be full sizes in our 10 gram jars with about 2 grams of product in them. There are a limited number of these in the pre-selected sets and singly. We also have some in samples ALTHOUGH they are only in sets of six (not individually) and do not include Pleasant, a color we did NOT make sample sizes of. The cool thing about the samples is they each contain about 3x more product that our usual sample sizes so you are getting more!

As a Bonus, you have the option to add our extremely popular Premium Small Dual Fiber brush if you happen to purchase any one of these Shimmers whether singly, in a set, or even a sample for $13.99! It is the ideal brush to apply such bright shimmer!

Here is an arm swatch of the Shimmers:


And just for fun, I thought I post up a picture I did not realize I'd have but thought you'd like to see anyway. Well, I did a workout yesterday afternoon and forgot to wash off the swatches I did before my workout. For anyone familiar with TurboFire by Chalene Johnson of Beachbody fame, it was the Fire 45 workout which is one of the major calorie burners and, most importantly, a *SUPER* sweat inducer, LOL. (You know the kind where you are literally snorting up your sweat and drowning...sorry, tmi!) I have a heart rate monitor and it stayes in the 78-85% range sometimes peaking at 93-95% during the Fire Drills.

I was amazed to find that despite my sweating profusely and toweling off everywhere, this was still left:


Darling, Reserved, Classic were meant to be more "clear" Shimmers with just a hint of color which is why you can see they blended right into my skin especially, since they are lighter shades anyway. However, you can't see this quite as well, but the shimmer was still pretty noticeable though not quite as "disco ball-y" as before. Even when I took a shower, it was still hard to get rid of the pigment and sparkles until I got out my now discontinued Microfiber washcloth out to rub the rest off...

So maybe a little extra info in case you are looking for something with color or just shine!

So the Blog Special will be on until Sept. 6, Labor Day, but the Clearance items will be there until they are gone. So happy shopping all!
