Adventures in Shimmer-town

*A Shimmery Summer*
I don't know if its the nicer weather lately or just the joy of summer coming up, but I've been having a serious love crush on some shimmery products. Below are my absolute favorite picks for you to have an amazing summer adventure in shimmer-town as well. 

Juice Beauty Organic Gloss in Champagne

This Reflecting Gloss will give your lips the most brilliant shine on earth. The combination of antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet agave will wrap your lips in radiant color. Sesame seed oil to heal and a combination of antioxidant-rich berries, minerals and sweet agave to nourish. Retails $15 for .28oz.

My thoughts:
I was super excited to get this in my Ipsy/Myglam bag for May. I've always wanted to try Juice Beauty but have never had the chance. I actually love this champagne shimmery gloss. It smells amazing and feels great on. I've literally been wearing it almost daily.

L'Occitane Pivoine Shimmering Body Oil
A beautiful dry scented oil enriched with the scent of peony, the flower of a thousand petals. Enriched with Vitamin E, Grape Seed Oil and Mother of Pearl, Pivoine Flora Shimmering Oil nourishes, beautifies and delicately perfumes the face, body and hair with the Pivoine Flora fragrance. Its uniquely dry texture enables the ability to get dressed immediately after use, leaving a glistening shimmer from head to toe. L’Occitane’s Pivoine Flora Shimmering Body Oil retails for $35 and may be purchased at

My thoughts:
This is perfect for summer and looks great on sunkissed skin. It isn't overwhelming at all on the skin. Once applied and rubbed into the skin, it provides a subtle shimmer. You can still see it when you look, but you won't look like a disco ball. This can be used on your face, hair and body. For hair, apply to the ends and scrunch for shimmering highlights. For face, add a few small drops onto the cheekbones and down the center of your nose as a highlight. For body, apply to decolletage, shoulders, arms and legs. In order to get this out of the bottle I merely tapped the top onto my arms and small circles would come out. I didn't have to worry about this getting anywhere because of the great design of the product. The scent is nice but not overwhelming and it does dry really quickly so you don't have to worry about getting oil or glitter all over. 

butter London polishes
About the brand:

My thoughts:
butter London has seriously some of the most gorgeous colors ever. If you ever get to a butter London store, you're going to have a very difficult decision ahead of you of which polishes to buy. With a topcoat, these usually last around 3 days on my nails. I'm loving some of the new colors they've come out with and always strive to use polishes that don't use as many harmful chemicals. My nails need all the help they can get. Which color is your favorite?
Face Stockholm Holographic Nail Polish

A new dimension in nail color, this special-effect polish offers high impact holographic shimmer. Each shade captures the light to reveal a full spectrum of radiant, iridescent color combinations. Like a kaleidoscope, diamond or prism, at every turn a new multi-dimensional world of color is unveiled. Formaldehyde, toluene and DBP-free. Retails $16
My thoughts:
The above shade is Auro which to me appears more purple in person than on the website. It is a gorgeous multi-faceted color that takes your breath away! You can't help but say something such as "oooohhh pretty!" when you see it. One coat was enough too for a gorgeous light lilac shimmery color as seen below. This dried quickly and was easy to apply. 

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Shadow Pearly Pastel Green

Have I blogged about this new shade enough yet? You can see my prior post here along with the rest of Mufe's summer offerings. I love all three of the new cream shades which last an incredibly long time without creasing. 

Which product(s) draw your eye the most? How will you be rocking some shimmer this summer?
