Jewelry Paper

Oh baby I'm all bling'ed up today thanks to my Jewelry Paper! Dontcha love it?

My friend Mayu sent me a package recently and inside was a few packages of "jewelry paper" Now I had never heard of Jewelry Paper and when I first opened this up I wasn't sure what to do with it. It looked like fancy blotting paper so I took a sheet out and proceeded to rub it across my forehead to soak up any access oil. It worked a treat as far as I was concerned with one problem. The paper started off a deep bronze color but after I blotted my face it had seemed the bronze rubbed off. I just shrugged and went about my business. About an hour later I happened to glance in the mirror to notice my entire forehead was covered in fine shimmer. Oh lord! At least I was at home at the time imagine if I was at work or a public place and blotted my face with this? Disco Diva Baby!


The moral of this tale is that Jewelry Paper is actually little sheets of paper that contain a healthy spray of fine shimmer on them. You can take a sheet and rub it across your eyes, cheeks, arms, or any part of your body and you'll have a super sweet layer of shimmer that's left behind after you rub!

Cool right?

Thus the name comes into play as you'll shimmer like jewelry!

What a neat concept.

The Muse loves shimmer so having an arsenal of cool "sheets" of shimmer whenever she wants to apply a bit of bling is ultra nice!

Mayu purchased these for me in a few colors so I'll be twinkling for the next few months!

Wow, what a fun concept and product! I wonder if you can get an even coverage like you do with shimmer puffs. Even if all things were equal, I'd probably prefer to bling myself with a cute puff than scratchy paper...

Happy Wednesday, Muse!

Hee...Hee...that sounds exactly like something I would do. Not too long ago I put on some "mood chapstick" while at my desk at work. I completely forgot about it until I went to the ladies room and glanced up at the mirror. My lips were HOT PINK! I was wondering why my boss was looking at me funny! LOL :]

Cookie you wanna try some? I'll send you some. I got a boatload!

I love puffs ;) I'm a sucker for vintage victorian powder jars with puffs ;)

Coverage is pretty good. I used one on my shoulders earlier and it spread nicely ;)

hi Anonymous!

LOL! Duh is right my friend! Imagine me waltzing around the city with a big blotch of shimmer on my forehead. Mind you I have plenty of shimmer everywhere else so it would fit right in I guess ;)

Muse you are always too generous! I think trying some would be really interesting - where did your friend get them for you?

I love the idea that they come in different colors too!
