The Bellapierre Shimmer 9 Stacks are some of the most beautiful shimmer pigments I have ever seen and used. These mineral shimmer powders come stacked together. There are 7 different assortments. The powders can be used for many different cosmetic applications and what is great is that they are extremely pigmented. As you can see below, I used them dry for swatches. There was no need to use them wet so that you could see the wonderful colors. When used on the eye, you do have to watch out for fallout some, but I do not apply them like normal eye shadows. With the Shimmer 9 Stacks, it is better them pat them on as much as possible to avoid fallout and get the most out of the shadows. The only thing I don’t like is that they are stacked together. I find that it makes them harder to use. Easier to store maybe but for me it is definitely harder to use.
(below left to right: shades of the Fabulous Shimmer 9 Stack: shimmery red, golden copper, bright turquoise green with shimmer, golden green, golden olive green, periwinkle, baby blue with icy shimmer, sparkly purple and pink with shiny pitch pink)
I did two looks with the shades. The looks came out pretty nice I think. In the first look I used the cool blues and greens to create an ocean look: I used the golden olive green shade in the crease, in the outer edge of the lid and under the eye. Then I used the bright turquoise green in the middle of the lid and the golden green on the inner corner of the lid and down in the inner corner of the lower lid. Then I just added black mascara.
For the second look I took the golden copper shade and used it in the crease, then took the shimmery red shade and used it in the outer edge of the lid and under the eye. I also used it a little bit in the crease to add some depth. Then I used the shiny pitch pink shade on the lid. This time I added a burgundy plum liquid liner on the upper lid and black mascara.
I would love to try the other shade stacks, especially Serenity and Bella, which are all rusts and browns. These stacks are coordinated with such beautiful shades. At the bottom of the website it tells you what each stack contains. All seven of the stacks are completely gorgeous. They wear all day long and are so pigmented that the only thing I have an issue with is that they are stacked together. If that is the only thing I have an issue with then, it isn’t too bad as it does make them easier to store.
