Gleam, Glimmer and Shimmer

June is my favorite month because it’s the start of so many things, events and celebrations. The month of June brings warmer weather, summer, my birthday and every beauty blogger’s and makeup artist’s favorite, The Makeup Show!

Yaass…The Makeup Show was in Chicago June 7th – 8th with a Blogger Preview event on the 6th with a bag full of beauty swag presented by the amazing Celebrity Makeup Artist James Vincent. He shared some of his fave beauty products and I must say, they were all pretty impressive and I could not wait to get my beauty play date on.

While I have tried a few of the products, the one that I am reviewing today is the Body Radiance from Gleam by Melanie Mills. I had never heard of the brand until James introduced it at the Blogger Preview event. So here’s a little beauty training to get you acquainted.

Now that you have been formally introduced, let’s get to The Glam it , The Slam it and The Final Grade.

The Glam: Gleam Body Radiance is a multifunctional product; that can be used on the face and body. This is a makeup, moisturizer and glow all in one. It gives a sheen and shimmer on the skin that leaves you looking sexy, sultry and sensational. Forget playing in the sun this summer for your sun-kissed goddess bronzed look because Gleam Body Radiance will put your natural tan to shame. Oh yes, it’s just that good!

It will not rub off on your clothes and the shimmer last all day long. It’s available in four shades so it’s great for all skin tones. Because we received the light gold in our beauty swag bags, I used it as a highlighter on my cheekbones and I love it! This product may be the 7th beauty wonder of the world. #IJS

The Slam: Well, I really don’t have a slam because I really like this product. However, the website does state that Gleam Body Radiance is a wrinkle filler, skin tighter and can diminish flaws like varicose veins, small stretch marks and discoloration but I am unable to confirm this; because the shade I tried is too light to cover my imperfections with my skin tone. I would need the Bronze Gold to put that statement to the test.

My final grade for the Gleam Body Radiance in Light Gold is 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH! It looks and feels great on my skin and the shimmer power is amazing! If you are interested in getting your gleam on, head over to gleambymelaniemills.com. It’s available in four shades and three sizes with prices ranging from $15 – $40. Happy Gleaming!
