Extreme Glimmers

Hi all! Ok ... so honest opinion about these ... they are pretty .... but SOOOOOO much of a pain to work with! It isn't that they are hard to work with ... just time consuming to get the way I want them to look. Add to that the fallout factor (hello GLITTER) and they are almost too much of a pain to bother with. Oh ... and the brush that comes with them is completely useless IMHO!

Still I pretty look ... and I finally got my UD 24/7 pencil in Deviant ... LOVE LOVE LOVE!

And isn't the necklace STUNNING! It was made by my dear friend Susie, and I think it is just gorgeous. She is the beading master, and I admire her skills a great deal. Thanks so much for the amazing ornamentation Susie! Love ya'!

Hope everyone enjoys this one ... don't think I will be recreating it anytime soon!

  1. Hi Girl. You might not like the extreme glitters, but they look gorgeous on you.

  2. They do look gorgeous!
    And I agree, they are very hard to work with! Love that liner!!

  3. I was hoping that the glitter would show up better. Hmm, I may not get theses after all.

  4. i have noticed you use the MAC metal-x under your colors a lot too... can you tell me, is that the same effect as using the shadesticks but maybe more shiny?

  5. Wow - these are beautiful. I'd say the time is worth the trouble with the fantastic results in the pictures.

  6. Ohhh, I know these are going to be a pain to work with - but, well, i love the glitter WAY to much to pass on these - LOL!! So getting this, they look AWESOME on you!!! ((hugs))

  7. Glad everyone loves the look ... i really enjoy the colours themselves, just wish they weren't so darn weird to work with!

    Luna ... I have a post about bases coming up that is just for you ;)

  8. woot! can't wait to read it...i am all about the bases!


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
