Hello there! I can’t say that this highlighter was essential for me, because I’ve got a lot of them already, but I just couldn’t pass by this beauty!Packaging
This is the first thing that I want to highlight. It’s so beautiful! I’d even say that this is the thing that grabbed my attention. I love beautiful makeup packagings. Well, it's obvious that it should also work fine. I’d never buy a gorgeous-looking silly makeup that doesn't work.
The highlighter comes packed with a pouch.
I never use such things that’s why I usually throw them away. The casing is glossy.
Inside there’s a big full top cap length mirror...Shade
: For quite a while I couldn’t decide on which shade to choose #01 (warm golden) or #02 (a cool pink one). And eventually opted for the shade #02 because the golden one seemed to be so ordinary for me.
This shade is more like silver-based, though it still has a pink sheen to it.
This sheen is actually the feature of this highlighter in my book. It doesn’t stand out much and makes my complexion so fresh and glowing.
It’ll be a must have for everyone with a fair complexion.
Glow and what I apply it with:
Well, it all depends on the tool. One can obtain delicate glow as well as bright shine agreeably.
For a fairer glow, I use a squirrel-bristled brush. For a more prominent effect, I use a goat brush or a synthetic one and polish the product into my skin.
Where to apply:
Above the cheekbones, inner corners of the eyes, all over my lids as a sheer eyeshadow. Sometimes I can wear this highlighter all over my face when I apply it with a big fluffy brush. If I take pictures with my decollete, then I apply some over my collar bones as well. This is how it looks:
Application and staying power:
It applies well, lightly and stain-free. The edges blend out with ease. The product doesn’t accentuate my skin texture or pores.
The product is rather tightly pressed, so a thick-packed brush is the best solution. The soft squirrel brush will apply it with a very delicate layer.
If we’re to compare its thickness with any other highlighter, I’d say that it most of all looks like the MAC products.
Overall: I’m absolutely head over heels with it. This purchase made me so happy. I like everything about it, starting from the outer appearance and finishing with the quality and effects, which I can see on my skin!
