Sparkle scares me. When it’s not done right, shimmer accentuates wrinkles. I’m usually cautious in my glittery makeup selection, but recently, I threw caution to the wind. I got some balls. Sparkly ones! On a whim, I bought NYX Roll On Shimmer. It’s like pixie dust on a roller ball!
Here’s my favorite shade: NUDE. It. Gets. Compliments.
Sales people at Sephora have asked me what I’m wearing when I’m wearing this as a highlighter on cheekbones.
What It Is
It’s loose powder infused with a very fine shimmer/glitter. These roller balls come in 16 colors including nudes, pinks, browns, greens, purple, onyx…and yes, they even have blue balls.
– It’s a roller ball! You can roll these balls anywhere on your body. I mainly use them as eyeshadow, but the more natural colors make perfect highlighters for your face and body, too.
– Add subtle sparkle to your shoulders or highlight your collar bones. They add a gorgeous shine to cheek bones, too. These balls can go anywhere with ease. The fine powder blends easily with a brush or your fingertips.
How I Roll
I haven’t tried the bolder colors like black or green, I prefer the pinks and nudes. I like using them as eyeshadow best, and they can be blended out to very sheer coverage for subtle shimmer or a little accent. I like them over a matte shadow, to add a hint of sparkle. And with this, I control the sparkle. For a daytime look I can blend them out. For an evening look with more sparkle, I can keep on rollin – adding as much as I want.
At about $4-5 each, I can feel like a baller and buy myself some more. They’ll be an inexpensive way for me to try more shimmery colors and branch out from the safety of my nudes and pinks.
I am having a ball with NYX Roll On Shimmer. They are amaze balls.
