Shimmer Mary

Disclosure

This is a long overdue post.  I think this particular Shimmer was sent to me on the very first batch of Shimmers, if I'm not mistaken, or the second.  I feel like I've had it forever, it's one of those tricky ones to layer, because a) the colors are not me and b) the base is a bit tinted.  I've come a long way swatching Shimmers, and I 'love' about 80% of them to be honest, and I 'like' 10% of them, and dislike the other 10%.   It's hard for me not to like Shimmers, they are packed with so much glitter and the formula is always amazing.  This post marks my Shimmer post #55, yeap there's about 60-70 different Shimmers available, as of today, and the lovely Cindy keeps on making fabulous new ones.  This doesn't include the hundreds of customs she has done.  I don't know how she does it.  If you haven't tried Shimmer yet, I suggest you click on the Shimmer tag at the bottom of this post and check out some of those 55 swatches (and most of them times 3 layering combos, so that's about 150), I'm sure that you'll find something in there that you'll 'love/like' as much as I do.
