Tomorrow morning The Shimmer Me Box August 2017 is launching… and it’s a pretty freaking good one!

The constant makers in the Shimmer Me Box are Colors by Llarowe, Tux Polish and Native War Paints. Each month will have a guest maker, and the August 2017 guest maker is Pam from Girly Bits Cosmetics! You’ve seen a lot of Pam’s creations on my blog over the years, so it was nice to see her involved in another box.

The August 2017 Shimmer Me Box has a theme of Summer Vamp, so while last month was a lot of bright, warm shades – this month we’re dipping into deeper, vampilicious shades perfect for Fall (I know it’s August, but Fall will be here in a snap, so just brace yourself)

Let’s take a look!

Colors By Llarowe – The Lady Is A Vamp

Colors by Llarowe The Lady Is A Vamp is a deep oxblood jelly base with a loose scattered holo effect, with shifting flakes that go from red to purple to copper, as well as gold, red and burgundy shifting shimmers. The base is incredibly deep and at first I thought it was black, but it’s not. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Native War Paints – Vamping Up

Native War Paints Vamping Up is a medium deep red leaning purple base with strong copper shimmer that glows in the base. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tux Polish – Don’t Be Jealous

Tux Polish Don’t Be Jealous is a deep cool toned purple with green shimmer, micro glitters and a little sprinkling of holo thrown in.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Girly Bits – What The Hex?

Girly Bits What The Hex? is a deep  blue jelly base with violet to copper to orange shimmer as well as violet to copper duochrome shifting microflecks. It’s interesting with 2 different shifting elements, and the 2 are kind of are to differentiate when you look at the polish on… but there’s a whole lotta shift in there. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The Shimmer Me Box August 2017 Overview

Now that a few Fall collections have rolled in, I’m kind of getting excited for the deeper color palette. This box gave that excitement even more of a kickstart. I personally found that all 4 shades looked good on my skintone and they applied really nicely. While each maker took on a vampy color, they did it so the colors were still dark but different from each other.

Price: $36.00
