today i want to show you a Shimmering Loose Powder by Estée Lauder from their Michael Kors Very Hollywood collection spring 2010. i wasn't really interested back then, but some months ago i found this on allcosmeticswholesale.com for only 12.99$ (it was 32$ originally) and bought it to try.
it contains 4.5g and comes in a small solid plastic sifter jar in a vintage blush beige colour.
the powder is very finely milled and of a mauve beige colour with very fine white pearl and chunky multicolour glitter particles. it has a light scent of sweet green tea. the shimmer is very fine and adds a silky sheen on my skin without looking greasy or emphasizing on enlarged pores. the colour is very sheer. the annoying glitter bits are easily brushed away, so i can even use this powder all over the face to get an illuminated look. otherwise it's a subtle highlighter for everyday use, but because it's more mauve i would like it in winter/spring better than in the warm season that needs more gold and bronze. i also like to use it as a blush topping on matte orange blushes like NARS Gina or Cargo Cannes when i want a muted pink shine as a twist.
