Wednesday is now Shiny-Day

August 28, 2013

Recently, I’ve been thinking about what kind of blog posts I love most to read. I’ve always tried to write interesting things but there is a variety I feel like I’ve really never focused on before: product reviews.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am thrifty and hate spending money to experiment with products that I don’t know if I’ll like or not. Which is why I always search out reviews online. Makeup, clothes, cleaning products, books, you name it.

So from henceforth, Wednesdays will be known as Shinydays (this being a reference to that fact that a lot of things I love are shiny as well as the term “Shiny!” from Firefly.)


As I am never consistent, I don’t think I will post every Shiny-day but when I do have something I want to share with you, I will post it here.

Today’s Shiny thing is e.l.f.’s Healthy Glow Bronzer


I’ve always used blush but I had never tried a bronzer until a few months ago. I am still a little intimidated by the idea of putting something so dark on my skin as I am super pale. So for an everyday, fool-proof, sun-kissed glow I use e.l.f.’s Healthy Glow Bronzer in Warm Tan.

I put this on my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead just around the edges (draw a number three on each side of your face with the brush). It looks more like gold than what I think of as a bronzer. It is so sheer it would be really hard to put on too much. I load up my kabuki brush twice for my whole face. I love that it doesn’t make me look fake-tanned (my pale neck and chest would be a dead giveaway that I belong to the tribe of the pale people) and it goes well with every blush I have.

Super simple way to get a bit of extra glow and for $1 at Target, you might as well give it a shot. I use mine daily and it usually lasts about 3-4 months.

Stay Shiny!
