My cute shimmery lollipop!

The shimmer powder puff is that little sparkly extra for that last minute touch up. I've used it on my cheekbones, my decollete, and on my hair. I love the fine high quality shimmer and glitter. The overall look of the shimmer puff is adorable and girly and it comes in a really nice box that's perfect for gift giving. The only thing I dislike is that there's a little bit of fallout when you use it and it eventually wears off over time. Besides all that I absolutely love it!

Use

I love "girly girl" stuff and as soon as I saw this here on EdenFantasys I knew it would be something that I would love! At first glance the soft fuzzy "powder puff on a stick" reminded me of a lollipop. The Shimmer Powder Puff from Bella Il Fiore (beautiful flower) is filled with fine silver shimmer and micro glitter. It's used for highlighting areas of the body such as the cheek bones, back of the hands, the decollete, or even your hair!

The shimmer puff would be best for women who love girly stuff between the ages of young teens and up. I know some women tend to shy away from shimmer and glitter because it's too "kiddie" or messy. The silky fine shimmery powder in this puff is very high quality and I think it would look good on any woman. If you're more of the tomboy type or really dislike any kind of glitter then you'll obviously want to stay away from this. If you're a guy I highly doubt you'll want to use this on yourself but if you have a cute and girly girlfriend or wife I'm sure she would love to receive this as a sweet little gift! If you have young children in the house you might want to keep an eye on this. They might mistake it for a toy and sneak off with it.

You might not want to use this on a daily basis but it's perfect for that finishing touch when you're getting all dolled up for a special occasion or any day when you're feeling extra girly. You could use it during the holidays, before a hot date, or when playing sexy dress up for your partner. Use it on your cheek bones as a highlighter or even powder it in your hair. This is for external use only and is not edible!

The ingredients are minimum and I highly doubt anyone would be allergic to the powder. If you're concernced for any reason always do a spot test and wait 24 hours to make absolutely sure.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

The powder feels very silky and light on the skin.

I powdered the back of my left hand and then rubbed it off with my right hand to see if it would stay in place or not. Most of the shimmer and glitter came off of the back of my hand and into the palm of my other hand. Now the shimmer and glitter won't come off of the palm of my hand no matter how hard I try to rub it out! I'm positive it's because the natural oils on my skin are what's making it stick. I don't think it's going to stay put for hours on end if you only softly powder it on the skin. Some of the glitter and shimmer tends to linger on the skin for a very long time even after it's been rubbed away. There's always some sparkles that you can't rub off no matter what you do. When it comes to glitter a little randomness is what makes it fun to wear. This isn't really such a big deal for me but it might be for others.

It's hard to get off completely until you wash it off under the sink or in the shower with warm water and soap. The powder doesn't fly everywhere and it's not messy at all but it might not stay in the "exact" place you want it to all day long, especially if it's coming into direct contact with anything (like clothes) or if you're really active. Any glittery and shimmery products I've ever used always has little bit of fallout and that's to be expected with a product like this one so I'm not surprised. It generally stays in place but then again it's a shimmery glittery powder without anything to really make it "stick." If you use it in your hair maybe you could lightly mist your hair with hair spray to make it last longer.

I hope this makes sense but if you have any questions about it you can send me a message or leave me a comment below.

Taste / Aroma

The powder smells like regular talc powder to me. There's no scent that I could detect at all. I wouldn't mind if it was scented with a nice foral or something sweet but apparently it's not scented at all. If you have a sensitive nose then you'll probably appreciate this. I admit I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't smell as pretty as it looks. But then again at least it won't have any conflicting effects on the perfume or body mist that you typically like to wear.

I got the "silver" and on the skin you definitely get a very pretty silvery shimmer that's subtle and glowy. It makes your skin look healthier. The glitter is so fine and tiny it's hard to tell if the glitter is actually silver or not. It appears to be a very fine silver/rainbow microglitter blend. I see little flecks of different colors that reminds me of a glittery lipgloss I own (Vanilla Coconut Liplicious.) It's so pretty and I love it!

I just wanted to add that this is not an edible product! There's no taste and it's not meant to be licked like other powders that are available here on EdenFantasys. This is a beauty product.

Performance

After getting all dolled up for a night out on the town (with my yummy handsome boyfriend!) I used my powder puff for my last minute touch up. To get it started I held the puff upside down and gently patted the back of my hand until the shimmer and glitter was showing up. Then I held it by the lollipop stick handle and gently patted my cheekbones. I think it made my makeup look even better! Plus it made me feel girly and cute to be using this adorable lollipop powder puff on my cheeks. You can either pat it on or gently glide it across your skin. I noticed that if I patted it too hard the glitter fallout would get on my clothes. You might want to do your makeup and use this puff before getting dressed.

When we came back home several hours later my cheeks were still shimmery and glittery but I could tell that some of it had worn off. Later that night when I washed my face before bed all of the shimmer and glitter went down the drain. I think the only way to completely get it off of your skin/hair is to either wash it really well or just take a shower.

As messy as glitter can be this isn't as bad as other glittery products I've tried before. I love my shimmer puff! I think it's adorable and the puff is kitten soft. It's the girliest thing ever and I would love to get the gold next time. If you like glitter then you'll love this! If you want shimmer without the glitter you'll have to keep looking. Overall, I'm really impressed with this product and I'd definitely buy another one. The fallout can be an issue for some but for me it's not such a big deal.

If anyone is wondering if it's refillable unfortunately it's not. The handle is completely covered in a black ribbon and it's glued together. It's held together really well and I don't see how you could open it without ruining it. If you try to open it you'll break it so it's best to just purchase a new one when the time comes. You could still use the shimmer puff to dip into loose powders long after the glitter is all gone though! I get the feeling that the glitter in this puff is going to last a very long time for me because I don't use glitter daily.

Packaging

The shimmer puff comes inside of a plastic bag inside of a light cardboard box that's pink, white, and black. Most of the box is pink with black accents around the edges. The top and bottom of the box have black and white stripes. On the back there's a cute cartoony silhouette of a girl with a ponytail sitting at a bistro table with a vase full of flowers. It reminds me of a cafe scene. It's extremely girly and cute! The box is perfect for gift giving. There were no dents or rips in my box and it felt brand new like they just folded it up yesterday.

Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, magnesium silicate, iron oxides.

Made in China.

This box is totally discreet and you would never know that it was purchased from an adult website. You could give it as a gift to anyone that would enjoy a little sparkle!
    • Discreet looking packaging
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift
Follow-up commentary
I love my shimmery glittery puff on a stick! I use it often by gently patting it onto my cheeks over my blush for a sweet girly look. I think it's adorable and I love girly things like this. I keep the puff in the box when not in use so the puff stays clean. A little goes a long way so I don't think I'll need to purchase another anytime soon but I'd love to get the gold during the holiday season. I wish you could refill it and reuse it but you can't. That's the only thing I don't like. Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase and it's one of my favorites!

    I think the one in the other color would be the one my girl would like best, but this review was very helpful! Thank you! I have to show this review to my girl. She will flip when she sees the Hello Kitty pencil you compared this to
