Hello gorgeous people! How have you all been doing good I hope. Yes It’s currently Valentines day here in Australia so I thought why not drop a highlighter review. Nothing says love more like a glowy highlighter on the cheekbones and this one is so underrated. I’ve been quite determined to be quite as productive as possible blogging wise, I do want to get as much done before uni starts up. Even though I still plan to write a couple posts a week during uni.
Anyway enough of my ramblings, let’s jump into today’s post!
Does it work with many skin tones? I’d say it slightly leans towards working better on paler complexions. I’m saying this because sometimes I have to adjust the way I apply it because it’s very pale on me which makes it 10 x as intense.
Is it overly glittery? For the most part no but if direct sunlight, like actually sun rays hit your face a bit of glitter is obvious.
Is it too natural? Definitely not, this baby can beam from space.
Is it available in many shades: The one I am talking about is the translucent shade but the pearl highlighter does come in a beige shade as well as a bronze shade. I definitely need to pick up the beige shade and see if it works better on my skin tone.
Day or night appropriate?: I like to particularly wear this highlighter at night and on cloudy not so sunny days. Only because I find it a little too pale for me and this highlighter photographs wonderful in dull lighting.
Where is it best for applying on the face? I love to apply it on the cheek bone of course. This also is gorgeous for the inner corner, brow bone, Cupid ’s bow and you can apply it to the center of the eye lid to make your eyes pop.
Price: It’s 29.95 AUD at price and $18.07 AUD off Iherb. So it’s definitely cheaper over there than Priceline.
Pros: A very intense, gorgeous glow. It’s affordable and it does come in three shades. Photographs very wonderfully in dim lighting.
Cons: The translucent shade can be too pale for some people, it does look a tiny bit glittery in direct sunlight.
Overall thoughts: This is a lovely highlighter. It isn’t easy finding great highlighters in the drugstore because a lot of them are glittery and tacky. This one isn’t and it gives you a fleek highlighter.
Would I repurchase? I would in the beige shade.
And that wraps up this post. Have you guys tried this highlighter? Tell me your thoughts. What drugstore highlighters have you been loving? Drop a comment below and tell me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and as usual I will see you in the next post.
