It’s high time to share my thoughts on this highlighter with you!
Packaging: a plastic black matte casing with a see-through window where we can see the shade of the product. I don’t know why but almost all the KVD makeup I associate with something gothic and childish at the same time. AKA, dark side of Vinks fairies.
You know earlier I didn’t have thought about this brand, I used to think that it was kid’s makeup or very old makeup indeed.
What does the product say:

This extreme yet weightless luminizer features liquid-powder technology, so it applies smooth and creamy and blends out seamlessly. The turbocharged finish is the result of not one, but three different layers of dimension: 1) a tinted glittering base; 2) ultra-fine micro-glitter; 3) magnified glitter crystals for a glimmering yet weightless finish.

My impressions of use: right here I want to say that the product is pretty dusting.
Sometimes I reach it just for fun because I’m not into such glittery highlighters. And even when I use them, I wear them on my eyes most of the time. By the way, let’s speak about its peculiarities right now.
I hardly ever wear it alone and most frequently set with powder glitter. Why? And why not?
For me, a highlighter is a shining product that doesn’t have any chunky bits but only gives a beautiful glow on my skin (cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, etc). I get it. But here I have to live through some mumbo-jumbo to get this result.
There’s a lot of it in the compact and considering its feature, it’ll go a lifelong way.
As for the formula, it seems to be filled with chunky shimmer.
I’m not picky about it. I’m just saying it for you to be aware that you’ll have to think twice before applying it over your skin.
By the way, its consistency is weird. Putting it simply, I’d say that it’s glitter mixed with vaseline. That’s a fact. The chunky bits are there and you can witness them in the pictures. Yet, this highlighter isn’t as dusty as some others in my collection.
I can fit it into my eye makeup. In the photo, the blue undertone was devoured by the color correction but in the swatches, you can see the true beauty of it as it.
In general, I give it 4 out of 5 stars, considering that you’re aware that it isn’t a common highlighter but a more glittery and hunky product.
In the end, it’s too complicated.
I can’t recommend it for purchasing because all that glitter isn’t actually for me. And it is never worth $30.
Thanks for your attention!
