NYX Roll On Shimmer for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

NYX Roll On Shimmer

This spring NYX Roll On Shimmers are all about color for eyes, face and body.

These loose powders come in a hard plastic tube with a roller applicator. There are sixteen colors in all, and all leave you with a whole lotta shimmery color!

If using as an eyeshadow (which is the only way I would ever use them), you can use directly from the roller, however it can get a bit messy that way! I prefer to roll some onto my hand then use either my finger or a small brush to pat it on my eye. Using a shadow primer definitely helps it stick to your lid better.

There will be fallout. Oh yes. There always is with loose powders, but it’s not that hard to clean up (or do it before all your other makeup).

Physicians Formula Cashmere Wear Ultra-Smoothing Blushes are a new product just in time for spring!

They claim to be infused with 100% Pure Cashmere Extract (whatever that is) for extra softness, Sodium Hyaluronate for smoothing and moisturizing and soft-focus pearl to diffuse and soften fine lines.

It all sounds very fancy but the bottom line is, these are great blushes!
