Classified Cosmetics | Aero Minerale Shimmer | $14.99
| Ulta Stores | and some Duane Reade
The other day, I gave this shimmer a shake and sprayed it on face. This is something I’ve never tried before, spray on makeup/airbrush sort of. I liked it. It sprays evenly and once you brush it, you feel and look amazing. It gives you this wake up look, with a nice subtle touch of shimmer, your face looks flawless. I love this, and what I love more is that I spotted it being sold at a Duane Reade by my job, which is great! I am going to need a can for my upcoming trip. Anyways, the Aero Minerale Hydrating Mineral Shimmer is an instant glam in a can! You will get a “red carpet” glow with a sophisticated shimmer. Feel free to wear alone, under or over makeup, and for true aerobrush application, mist directly onto skin. For a more classic coverage, apply with brush, sponge or fingers.
