Shimmer Body Art Reviews
Scam, Sellers of information, Disappointed Birthday 11 yr. old Girl
BUYERS BEWARE!!!! The Shimmer Body Art SELLS YOUR INFORMATION!!! THEY DO NOT SHIP UNTIL THESE TELEMARKETERS HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO CALL YOU!! IT GETS WORSE FROM THERE! the tattoos are cool and fun. We got one for Christmas with two colors and 4 stencils. So for my daughters birthday sleepover party I decided to order the "Deluxe Edition". I went online to ordered the kit went checkout and to ensure it would arrive on time instead of the 4-6 weeks I paid for 3-6 day shipping. Then after all that they bring up a screen offering a "maintenance kit" for an additional 9.99. I thought why not? So I added it for supposedly "no additional shipping cost" as I am completely reviewing my order NEVER do I see a place to check and remover my name from a list where this company SELLS MY INFORMATION TO TELEMARKETERS. What happens next? 3-6 days has turned into 10 days and I get this telemarketer company blowing up my phone to sell me some "gas vouchers for 1.00" in return to try out their vacation club promotion. It takes me over 20+ minutes to get it through this guys head that NO MEANS NO! In the end he tells me my Shimmer Art Kit will now be shipped to me in 3-6 days. After another 3-6 days and I look on my bank statement to see they still have taken the money out and I am having my phone blown up again by another telemarketing company. I by now have had enough I call the Shimmer Art Company only to find out they DO NO HAVE THE DELUXE KIT IN STOCK NOR DO THEY KNOW WHEN THEY WILL. Instead I'm offered 2 small kits with four colors for the price of 14.99 with "no other cost to me" and 3-6 shipping guaranteed. With my daughters birthday party looming ahead in less than two weeks what choice do I have? Those tattoos were to be the HIGHLIGHT of the sleepover. Now how do I tell my daughter? Good news though..Go to amazon and they have other kits from other companies and the color powder is Nail Glitter Dust. So to get your multiple colors look under nail glitter DUST. They are much cheaper and ship much faster with no selling of your information. I wish I had known that before I took the *** offer of the 2 small kits and since they immediately took out the money from my bank I can;t get a refund. DON'T GET SCAMMED LIKE ME PLEASE
Sold my Phone Number
After ordering the Shimmer Body Art for my niece I received a phone call a day from an 866 number. I usually don't answer these but I was awoken to the phone ringing and grabbed it without looking. The person was "confirming" my order and then proceeded to tell me all the gift cards I could have if I tried............*insert magazine/product/junk here. I was so irritated that I hung up as soon as I realized it was a ploy. I am not happy that the company sold my number to a telemarketing service and would have said how much my niece likes the product had this not happened. RIDICULOUS.

Whatever you do DO NOT order from this company! I ordered this for my 2 daughters who wanted this. I do not normally order off TV commercials, but my girls are doing great in school and earned money as a little incentive for working hard. We all thought it would be fun, so they combined their money they earned to purchase Shimmer Body Art. A few days after I ordered it, I was getting the calls from the company trying to sell me other items as well. I told them NO many times and they would not listen to me. I finally had to get rude and extremely firm. I ended up hanging up on them because they wouldn't stop harassing me. Two weeks later I finally received Shimmer Body Art. We were so disappointed! The box is tiny and very generic. It's not even in packing, just a brown shipping box, so definitely do not buy this as a gift for anyone. It's not exciting in the least! The little tubes of glitter barely have anything in them and it's definitely not worth the $22.00 I spent. I want to send it back but by the time I would pay to send it back, I'll be wasting more money. I've learned a big lesson and I wish I would have read the prior reviews on this company and product before I purchased it. I guess I just trusted the company since they were aloud to advertise on TV. I am disgusted with the television networks as well for allowing these fraudulent companies to advertise to consumers like this. It's absolutely amazing they get away with this! I hope others can learn from my mistake. It is ashame that we have to be so cautious and untrusting, but unfortunately we do. By the way, I went to Michael's and they have a similar product that is much nicer for a fraction of the cost.
Shimmer Body Art Tattoos
On 8/24/12 a Duran Johnson called and told me my credit card was charged for an order placed with Shimmer Body Art Tattoos. I told him I did not complete the order, because it added a maintainence kit, in which I did not order. He told me to call 877-228-****(customer service). I called customer service and spoke to Brian. He told me, he could not cancel the order, that I would have to call on Monday the 27th. I asked to speak to a supervisor. I was on hold for about 11 minutes, in that time, I was checking the order status and while on hold they went ahead and processed my order to be shipped. The supervisor Lynn came on the phone and said the could not cancel it, would have to call Monday. Told her was not happy that they just processed the order to be shipped while I was on hold. Call customer service 8/27/12 and spoke to a Bedreannia (or something like that), really could not understand how she said her name. But anyway she said the order had been shipped, I asked how can that be when I did not submit the order, cause I could not take the maintainance kit off. She said I had to click something if I did not want the maintainance kit. I went back on the site did not see anything. She told me I could refuse the order because it was Fedex, the she said just take it to post office it was coming regular mail. I am not happy with the ordering process here. They get your credit card information , once they have it and you continue your order is placed. BAD ORDERING PROCESS. Would I recommend for others to use, NO. NOT HAPPY AT ALL! This was suppose to be a birthday gift for my niece's daughter. Once they receive it, how can I tell her to send back. IT SHOULD'T HAVE GONE THROUGH AT ALL. BECAUSE I COULDN'T TAKE THE KIT OFF.

Shimmer Body Art
Grandchildren see ad for fun "body art"- Glittery tattoos- on Television. Granny orders big set for all excited kids. Online order. Went for the "Express Mail". No confirmation email received. Two days later after a big run around I speak to someone who tells me next week it will be delivered. Really? After paying 25.00 for expedited shipping? Then I see I am charged on my credit card right away but no shipping right away. Then I discover this website with negative comments. Sure enough, yesterday afternoon the soliciting calls start, first confirming my order and then launching into the " free voucher routine" along with offers for deals. And try canceling an order with this company! Worst was trying to explain to all the kids why this wasn't going to happen. Next: On to reliable Amazon with some solutions. Big lesson for this Granny and for the kids too.

Credit card theft
I placed an order in June 2012 for Shimmer Body Art and then I was contacted by an "agent" who offered me some additional trial periods of consumer discounting programs. I was asked to verify my credit card information two times in its entirity, and as they proceeded to go into the third offer, I grew increasingly leary about what was happening. I was assured I'd recieve the mentioned information in the mail prior to the expiration of the trial periods, so reluctantly proceeded knowing I was going to cancel once the information was recieved. My credit card was never billed for the body glitter and on July 9, 2012, I fell victim to credit card theft as someone from Massachuessetts attempted to purchase over $800 in merchandise using the very credit card I provided the company to make my purchase. I contacted my financial institution who has closed that card number to avoid any future occurrences, and NOW, it's July 11, 2012 and I've received an email stating my payment for my Shimmer Body Art has declined. How ironic that they neglected to process the payment upon placing the order, but 2 days after the fraudulent activity, they want to tell me they've processed the payment and now it's not going through. *******DO NOT FALL VICTIM TO THIS SCAM******* There were no other websites (not paypal, ebay, amazon) that had this credit card information AND I never lost my credit card. It's remained in my possession this entire time!!

Placed order from TV add on June 12, 2012. It is July 9, 2012 and we have no idea why order has not shipped. They charged my credit card the same day we placed the order. when you call 877-833-**** you cannot get a live person and the message says to check order status online. The call hangs up after it telling you to do online 2 times. When I tracked order online it just has an x by order is being processed. My daughter is so frustrated and so am I. She checked the mail everyday for her gift. This company should not be able to advertise its business to children and then never send you the order. I am going to try to cancel my order and then deny charges on my card.
Shimmerbodyart.com Scam to get your card # and send you unwanted offers.
I made my order online to https://www.shimmerbodyart.com/ then got 6 calls from an 866 #. I do not usually answer those since they are telemarketers. I finally decided to answer since the calls did not stop and there was no messages. They said they were calling to confirm my order, then asked if i was 18 then they unveiled the true nature of the call.. to try to reel me into agreening for them to send me "money saving offers" and free gas.. I was upset and told him not to send that crap. He then told me my order is on backorder and will take 2-6 weeks to get. I called back the very next business day to cancel my order, i was so mad from that first call. They told me that my order shipped, i called them out on that saying that i was told that it would take 2-6 weeks just the day before, she transferred me to some other guy and he said they are another company and all they do is confirm order shipments and tell us their offer and they have nothing eles to do with the company shimmerbodyart.com. He told me to go online and to call the #, i did that and it was a recording telling me to go on line to ideavillage.com and check status. I went online and saw my order, i clicked the "cancel my order" button and then a window popped open saying to call 1(87*)833-****. That is the original # that was a recording telling me to go online for status. This is clearly a scam and so many people are being taken advantage of and this makes me sick. Im just glad I transferred all my $ off the card i used, so they transaction was cancelled because the card # was rejected. I guess i got the last laugh on that one.. but now i have to get a new card and that will cost me $20- So it looks like the only winner in this story is the bank.
