It took me a few brain-fart attempts to figure out the the best method of applying this shimmery body powder to myself. But the result was a delightful sparkle across my skin that added a perfect extra touch.

The most unexpectedly enjoyable element of using this product was the color. With a golden tone to the shimmery powder, it worked almost like one of those lotions that is supposed to make you look more tan. As I applied it across my arms, shoulders and chest, my skin started to have the same kind of look that comes from a day of playing in the sun, without any of the harmful UV. Now, I wouldn't categorize this effect as being as strong as, say, self-tanner. It's a more subtle change and one that doesn't leave awkward "tan lines" where your un-powdered and powdered skin intersect or anything. But it's something to consider if you're trying to maintain a more delicate, pale look. My theory is that this powder's erotic capacity is adding a combination of "youthful glow" and, in some ways, mimicking the coloring that comes from a little bit of arousal.

So back to the confusion about application. I opened the container and found a cute little puff sitting on top a plastic piece. The plastic piece had a series of holes in it and could be removed to have access directly to the powder. If you're like me, you've seen this kind of set up before on make up and assume that you can add powder to the puff by shaking up the container a little and allowing some to sift upwards to rest upon the plastic bit. This didn't work that way. I searched for the remove-able tape that was sealing up the holes but had a terrible time finding it in the apparently inadequately-lit dressing room. Eventually, I gave up and simply pulled the plastic piece off, dabbing the puff directly to the powder. A tiny bit of chaos ensued, my hands became little more colorful (and, frankly, fabulous!) but it worked. It wasn't until a couple attempts later, after I had resolved to puncture the holes with a safety pin that I finally was able to see the edge of the clear sticker blocking the holes. So the moral of the story is: don't give up. And also: use this in a well-lit room the first time... That doesn't have a ton of white furniture in it.

The staying power of the powder is impressive. While it's not an overwhelming accent to the skin (you could wear it in every day life and people wouldn't necessarily notice it), it stays in place until you wash it off. I wore some at night, sweated a great deal, changed clothes a couple times and it was still smiling back at me from my collarbone. I pretty much never wear light colors; black is more my thing. But I would wager that this might discolor a white piece of fabric, at least temporarily. So that's another consideration.

Again, as I mentioned, the effect is subtle. You can wear this in every day life, if you so desire. But my recommendation would be to dash a little on before going out for a late afternoon meet-up, like a happy hour or a summer dinner. The glamorous feminine shimmer will be sure to bring that day-at-the-beach touch to your look.
Follow-up commentary
I still use this all the time. The lack of diversity of color options is problematic- and I don't just mean in a racial way- it's hard for white girls to match this tone too. But it's glittery as all get out and easy to apply all over.
