I was a little worried I would look like a disco ball exploded on me with a product called Crystal Confetti. But after my first use I was happy to say its just the right amount, it gives me a bit of a sparkly glow with just a hint of glitter.

The scent is very pretty its reminds me of Cherry Blossom and Amber Blush. And as you can see from the swatch below it just gives a hint of sparkle and would look great for any holiday party.
