Mica Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder

I got a Mica Beauty Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Bronze #17 in my August Ipsy bag and I'm so glad I did.  It is a loose shimmer powder and the .01 oz sells for $14.95. Mica Beauty. That may not sound like a lot but it is a very nice size and eye shadow lasts forever. Mineral Makeup is extremely gentle, free of preservatives, chemicals, dyes, talc, oils, and other fillers.

 As you can see it is a beautifully pigmented brown/gold shimmer.
For a shimmer powder surprisingly it was not messy at all. I did not shake the container instead I opened the top and "dumped" a little onto the cap. Then I grabbed powder with my applicator from the top.

It is very easy to apply and can be worn alone but I used a shadow glue base. I used an applicator instead of brush to which made it go on a little darker. Another reason I used an applicator I also don't like using my brushes over glue. Once I finished applying a ran a Q-tip over it to remove a little of the excess. I also used other shadows on my brow and crease 

I was afraid this was a little too much for day time but it was very pretty. Don't remove the the excess and of course add some eyeliner and you're all set for a night out. The shadow stayed on beautifully all day and did not crease or fade. It also never traveled into my eyes like some powders do.  I give this eye shadow and A. I want to try other Shimmer Powder colors and Mica has lots of other beauty products I would love to try. 

Have you used any MicaBeauty Products? Let me know which ones. Want to join me on Ipsy click here
