Photo-shoot Products Yes or No

Instant Bronzing Shimmer Powder by Victoria’s Secret

When I do photo-shoot Victoria’s Secret has a lovely crème the models can use all over to smooth out the skin and make it glossy and add shimmer to the skin which will show up on camera. But my last trip to the store I could see a new product made by Victoria’s Secret called “Instant Bronzing Shimmer Powder”. So I took a look and decided to try out the product for my upcoming photo-shoot. The product stated, “Dust yourself in a head-to-toe glow. Beach Sexy Instant Bronzing Shimmer Powder with radiant mica leaves skin kissed with sexy bronze shimmer in one quick sweep. Perfect for décolleté, shoulders, arms and legs. Combines powder and brush for easy application”.

Well the product fell apart on me, the sables from the brush would fall out upon using it for a “Dusting” to the skin. Not enough product would come out and the shimmer product itself was not strong enough for a photo-shoot nor did hardly any product come out at all. . I am pretty heavy handed when it comes to body makeup but this product did not show up as abundantly as I would need for it to show up on camera. This product made be good for home use, but I don’t recommend it for professional use at all. Sorry not in my makeup kit! Joseph Kellner
