At the Cork beauty bloggers meet up we were all given a very generous goodie bag from The Body Shop which included a gorgeous little product, their Shimmer Waves in 'Coral'. This pretty little product has a lovely wave pattern which contains five individual shimmering shades which can be used individually or together to highly and contour the face. I absolutely love the shades in this product, they are a mix of pink and orange tones as well as one creamy colour which are fabulous for creating a sun-kissed glow on the skin. Each shade is shimmery but not over the top, the effect of the Shimmer Waves is quite subtle but enough to get you noticed. You can use Shimmer Waves as a blush which gives a gorgeous peachy/coral colour to the cheeks or, as I normally do, as a highlighter all over the face. I usually mix all the colours together with my blusher brush and apply to my forehead, under my cheek bones and chin which gives my skin a healthy looking glow. The effect of Shimmer Waves on the skin is very subtle but when it catches the light it's very pretty. I haven't tried it yet but I also think each individual shade could be worn as an eye shadow to create a stunning coral coloured eye shadow, this is definitely on my to-do list.
You get a whole lot of product for your money so this handy little product is bound to keep blush and highlighting enthusiasts happy for a long time. I think these particular Shimmer Waves are perfect colours for spring and summer, I can just imagine tanned skin looking beautiful with a light dusting of coral Shimmer Waves. I'm delighted to have this product in my makeup collection and it gets daily use, it's amazing and gives my makeup looks that extra bit of glow in these cold winter months.
Stay pretty people!
