SIGMA Loose Shimmers and Glitters, Yay Or Nay?

I'm going to start today's post with a very serious question....

What do you call the person who knows that a paper cut on the finger hurts like a b*tch (hey, a paper cut does hurt, okay?!) but keeps poking at the cut to double, triple and quadruple check that it reallyyyyy hurts?

Yea, that person is me.

I never have luck with loose eyeshadows or glitters or pigments or whatthefuckever you call it and yet, I keep trying because I think, hope, wish that I will fall in love with one. Now don't get me wrong, I love loose setting powders but anything other than that? No bueno...

It's Friday so I'm in the mood of making this short and sweet or in this case, not-so-sweet. And you lovelies are smart so without a doubt you already know where this review is heading...yes, South and full speed ahead.

For those of you who didn't notice, there are two different loose powders here; shimmer and glitter. The loose shimmers are hit and miss, you guys already know I was disappointed with Ravishing* (first impression here) and my feelings have not changed. I do like Felicity* but have since noticed that it looks odd on my warm yellow skin tone. It's a dimensional icy cool tone pink so it stands out like a sore thumb on me. Zeal* is the saving grace of the trio...it's beyond stunning and I could use it for a pop of colour in the middle of my eyelids, the inner corner of my eyes and on my cheekbones.

Bewitch* and Ethereal* are stunning as inner eye highlights and on the middle of my lids. I am unable to use both as face highlighters because both appear stark white against my skin tone but I can see them looking stunning on fair skin. I also can't blend them out too much or I would be left with just specks of glitter on my skin...it's not the look that I am going for, ever.

The best part about these loose shimmers and glitters is the packaging. The sifter has three small holes (see here) so it doesn't spill too much product and create a mega mess.

I can't deny that I am a little disappointed with these...you guys know my obsession with SIGMA brushes (read here, here and here) but these I cannot love. I have tried very hard to but it's just not for me. I wish that these would have come in cream, stick or pressed powder which I think they do and I would have enjoyed them more.

Frankly these are not bad products but they just don't suit my need. If you are a makeup artist then I think you will freaking love these but if you're a normal mama who is usually running after an almost 3 year old then you probably only need one or none.

What are your thoughts on SIGMA Loose Shimmers and Glitters? Are you a fan of loose products?
