Have you heard of Melanie Mills? I have to say before I heard of her line, the name sounded SO familiar, but I couldn’t place it! Then it hit me, Melanie Mills is a famous makeup artist to the stars. She’s not just any makeup artist, she’s an Emmy Award winning artist who has over 14 years experience in the field. She’s best known for her work on Dancing with the Stars- the birth place of her Gleam line.
On top of all that, she’s a women after my own heart: “Glitter is fun and makes you feel young and sexy. And, by the way, you are never ‘too old’ for glitter.” – Melanie Mills.
I received a beautiful bag of Gleam products from their two lines, Gleam Body Radiance, and the newest line-Lip Radiance.
The first product I tried was Gleam Body Radiance.Body Radiance is an all over body makeup that applies like a lotion/bronzer but does so much more for your skin. With ingredients like Vitamin E & jojoba oils, Body Radiance nourishes your skin while providing an amazing radiance and glow wherever it is applied. Body Radiance comes in 4 shades: Light Gold, Rose Gold, Bronze Gold & Deep Gold.
I chose Rose Gold, which was the original color and is Melanie Mills’ signature Body Radiance color. Body Radiance was originally created for the show Dancing with the Stars when fake spray tan lines were being exaggerated by the camera angles. Melanie needing to come up with something that would cover up flaws and scars and provide an even skin tone, but that would also show up evenly on camera.
My picture does not do Gleam Body Radiance any justice! You can see the area on the top of my arm and my wrist where I have a nice glow and more even skin tone. I really love this for low cut tops, my legs and my arms. You can even use body radiance to highlight areas on and around your face like your jaw line, cheek bones and even as an eyeshadow.
I also got to try Gleam Lip Radiance in two colors, Naked & Uncontrollable. Lip Radiance applies smooth and lasts all day. Each shade is super pigmented and does not even require a lip liner to keep this long wear lip color in place. It feels amazing on and comes in 7 shades.
I found both colors I received to be true to the website, which is great when you are trying to match a color to your skin tone or a dress. The less guess work when making and online purchase, the better.
With Lip Radiance, my lips felt better after I wore this lip gloss than they did before.
Overall, I really loved the Gleam line! I would buy these products again in a heart beat. I can’t wait to try more colors from both the Lip Radiance and Body Radiance collection.
