These beads come in cute and flattering colors like pink, a light golden shade, tan... the idea is that when blended together they create a great finish with a "lit-from-within radiance" and a hint of shimmer.
In truth.... there's a lot of frost and shimmer in here. Like, a lot. Even a light dusting around my face is too much, it seems to catch in strange places on my skin and give me wrinkles that I didn't know I had (and really, I can't see otherwise, so I am choosing to believe they are fake wrinkles. Not there.) There wasn't really any color visible, but the issue was the shimmer/frostiness.
So, I've been using the beads as a highlighter. A smallish blush brush works great with the container, then I can apply to my cheekbones, around my eyes a little, my chin and down the middle of my nose. Very light is all you need, and then I have a barely visible shimmer, no color is visible, but it is just the perfect amount to catch the light.
So, all over cute Sweetheart Beads = probably bad for anyone over 30. (Which yes, is definitely me.) But, cute Sweetheart Beads as a very subtle highlight, yes that works!
