bellapierre champagne

I received this in my April She Said Beauty box, which I was ecstatic about getting, as the colour is so lovely, and it retails for around the same price as the whole beauty box cost.

The packaging is as about good as it gets with loose pigments - it has a sifter! Yayayayay. At least the whole 2.35g of product won't go everywhere when I open it. The She Said Beauty website says that the product has multiple uses, such as an eyeshadow, cream eyeshadow (when used wet), highlighter, eyeliner, lip colour, tinted mascara (dip mascara into the powder, bit weird - does anyone actually do this?) and also as nail polish, in which they instruct you to dip a nail polish brush with clear nail polish on it into the powder - sounds quite interesting and I'd like to try this out. Also, the shimmer powder is apparently 100% hypo-allergenic, and can even be used on the most sensitive of eyes, so there's a plus.
Blended out, the powder fades away to nothing but a slight shimmer, so although I can see how this would be a problem if you want to use it as an eyeshadow, however it'd work well as a cheekbone or inner corner highlight, or maybe as a body glitter for nights out?

The name hits the nail on the head, the colour is definitely champagne. Extremely sparkly though, so you will have fallout if applied to the eyes.

Buy: Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Champagne, £12.99
