Have you ever watched a movie or television and wonder how the stars managed to get their skin to, well, gleam? It was something that I had wondered for a long time, because my usual “shimmering” lotions just weren’t doing the trick. It was a totally different look, and I had been trying to figure it out for some time now.

Welp, I figured it out. When I was at The Makeup Show in Dallas, I had a chance to play with Gleam Body Radiance by Melanie Mills. Melanie has an entire line of body makeup that is all about getting that Gleam.

The Body Radiance cream (it’s really more of a light lotion – not heavy at all) comes in four shades:

  • Light Gold: is the lightest of the formulas, with a pale yellow base that counteracts ruddy and reddish skin undertones. Perfect for light to medium skin tones. Camouflages stretch marks, scars, and other imperfections.
  • Rose Gold: THE color of the season, no? This is Melanie Mills’ signature color and her personal favorite. This is the original Gleam formula, that was created for Dancing With the Stars celebs and pro dancers. Gives a liquid metal sheen to the skin. Blend with other colors to create a unique look.
  • Bronze Gold: real bronze shade – I mean, it’s true to real bronze. It also acts as a liquid metal – it’s very cool. This is a shade that works well with medium to deep skin tones.
  • Deep Gold: This is a chocolate shade with red velvet undertones (seriously). This is the Gleam you want for deep skin tones – camouflages uneven pigment patches, stretch marks, and other small imperfections. It is also a liquid metal.

Along with the beautiful Gleam Body Radiance, there is also a complete Radiant Dust collection with all the same shades as above. It’s perfect for locking in that beautiful Gleam. It’s also really cool as an eyeshadow.

The photos just don’t do it justice – I couldn’t adjust the lighting to give it a fair shot, but I have Light Gold. It’s set aside for all my dressy occasions, especially in summer. I will probably end up with the whole line, because shimmer.
