There Are A Few Pigments Sellers Here, I've Been Selling Them For 4+ Years And Have A Huge List To Choose From. Oh Also I Use A Regular Sponge Application First So The Pigment Doenst Fall Onto My Lower Cheek And Then Use Brush's To Blend. Feel Free To Pm Me Anytime With Questions. There Are So Many Members Here With Great Advice And Different Techniques Which Are All Great.

If you are looking for a nice shimmer just add a frost pigment to the powder instead and it will tint and shimmer your powder up. Great for blushes too, and lips - I find using a sponge tip applicator to apply pigment to lips the best and just add a clear gloss over the top - gorgeous!!

Anyway i've been adding a tiny bit of the frosty highlighter colour pigment called 'Provence' to my Bare mineral veil or foundation to give a really nice healthy subtle shimmer look to the skin. It just takes away that chalky matt finish the Bare minerals tend to have. I think any of the frosty light shades, would work well, ie Vanilla or a very pale icy pink shade, or even the taupy/pale brown shades if you prefer it a little darker. Also it can take away the need for a seperate highlighter powder for your face.
I suppoze it's on the same lines as what Panda0410 suggested with the loose powder except this is with the Minerals instead.
