MeMeME Shimmer Stack

Hi everyone,

Well, recently I was given a MeMeMe Shimmer Stack to try out and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised.

For those of you who have never tried these products or even heard of them, they are an affordable yet, great quality cosmetic brand stocked at Superdrug. They have recently been repackaged and some of the products have been slightly reformulated to improve the longevity etc.

The Shimmer Stack on first sight looks a lot like a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick which, as we all know has a huge following. However, on closer inspection, you'll find that it doesn't have as much of glittery finish! I actually love that.

I use Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Bricks alot on myself, my clients and on shoots however, there are times when less is more and the MeMeMe Shimmer Stack gives a more natural veil across the skin.

They come in 3 colour combinations, Gold, Bronze and Pink and can be used as an all over bronzer/veil,  individually as eye shadows or use the lighter shades as a highlighter. They are priced at £9.99, which for the size of the palette is amazing value. The other great point about this product is that is has a huge mirror which makes it more user friendly. See below.

I've been using the Gold stack with the Laura Mercier Finishing brush for a soft application but using a bronzer brush will definitely give more intensity.

If you haven't tried the products yet, pop into Superdrug to have a play. From what I understand they are replacing all the stands in store to make them more inviting so have fun.
