Shimmer, Shimmer Everywhere
Image via WikipediaThis is a rant post. About shimmer.
I am sick of it. It is everywhere. In translucent powders, in loose powders, in eyeshadows, in blushes, in lipsticks.. *Sigh*
What is a matt girl to do?
I live a relatively boring life. Monday to Friday I spend in office. & I rarely party over the weekend as I am so tried from the week's hectic scehdule..
So I wear most of my make-up to office. where I need to look professional. Not like a glitter doll.
But shimmer/sparkle is the rage it seems. Got shimmer, throw it in.
It all started when I went shopping with my friend for loose face powder. To my horror a lot of them had golden/silver shimmer particles in it. This includes brands like Revlon, Street wear et al.
Has any cosmetic chemist comprehended that a face covered in shimmery powder might look like a disco ball?
A few days later I was looking for dark brown/taupe & dark grey (steel grey) eyeshadow in matt. Same luck. All I found was shimmer, in all eyeshadows. Mission aborted.
Yesterday at the Lakme counter, I swatched their blushes, 2 out of the 3 I swatched had glitter. Both had gold shimmer.
Is it just me? Is shimmer just following me everywhere?
Don't get me wrong.. I love sparkly eyeliners, and have a lot of them.. But a shimmer blush will not look very professional when worn to office, neither will a shimmery loose powder, or eye shadow, as opposed to a party at night..
What do you guys feel? What brands do you turn to when you have to buy make-up for office? Does shimmer turn you off as well? Or is that what you're loving the most about recent make-up?
