“ Brand: Virgin Vie / Type: Foundation / Subcategory: Powder „
As many of you are aware Im getting married soon and I have been shopping for all my bits and bobs that Ill need to try and make myself look sexy and glam on my big day. I have been looking for a nice light shimmer powder that I can safely wear with my ivory wedding dress without spoiling it.
I have tried Avon, Boots and Body shop but couldnt find the right kind of product that I wanted. Last week I was speaking to a friend who recently got married and she recommended Virgin vie Fantasia Melted kisses shimmer powder. I searched the website but couldnt find it, I could have ordered it from the South Africa site priced at R150 for 15g which is roughly about £10.55 but the postage would have cost a lot. I called Virgin Vie customer service where a lady informed me that the product Fantasia Melted kisses shimmer powder had been discontinued.
So I a call of desperation I tried Ebay and there were a few listed on there mostly brand new and sealed at a fraction of the original price. It arrived this morning and I am over the moon with it.
As far as i am aware you can only get the one size of melted kisses and that is a 15g box. The style of the box is quite strange and very hard to describe but I shall give it ago. Its has four sides like a square but the sides are slanted on the base and on the lid if you look at the picture you will hopefully see what I mean. The box is a pale pink colour with a white swirl pattern on the panels and a silver square on the top in the middle with the virgin symbol on it. It also has Virgin Vie Fantasia out of this world Melted kisses shimmer powder printed on the side in purple and silver lettering.
'Lavish your skin with the touch fluttering, feather soft powder'
It is a very fine, light and soft shimmer powder which is silvery/ lilac in colour. Once it is applied to your skin there is no colour as such, what you will see is a shimmer of silver which sparkles when caught by light like starlit snow. It has a beautiful sweet berry scent which makes your mouth water. This shimmering powder is like no other . You can actually eat it!!
**How to use it**
Once you have opened the box you will find a purple puffball which you use to apply the shimmer. I was a little confused at first on how to get the shimmer out, you might not be as stupid as me and see the sticky tab in the centre. Once the tab has been removed there are ten little holes where the powder comes through. Simply shake the powder onto the puffball then apply it to the skin. It is safe to use all over the body and dont forget it is edible so be daring and adventurous. It tastes delicious described as frosted berries a sweet sugary taste. Not sure on the calorie content!! Once the shimmer is applied it lasts quite a few hours unless it is licked off!

I am very happy with Melted kisses and recommend it highly but grab it while you can as they are limited now they have been discontinued. As I stated earlier I brought mine from ebay which cost £3.21 including postage.
