Hey there beautiful humans!
You guys know I love highlighters! So here I am today, bringing to you another highlighter review. This time an affordable kit that won’t break the bank and is seriously wonderful! So if you guys want to know my thoughts on the E.L.F illuminating palette then keep reading!
Let’s get our glow on!
Is it glittery or tacky? No. They provide a beam of light to the skin without looking glittery or sparkly in an unflattering way.
Formula: The powders are finely milled and smooth. They aren’t chalky and when applied to the skin they don’t have a heavy powdery look. They last well on the skin, the standard amount of time a powdered product lasts on the skin – a setting spray does help.
Pigmentation: These highlighters are quite pigmented. Of course when you swatch them with your finger verse apply them with a brush they don’t look as intense but overall they do provide a very noticeable glow – it just doesn’t have that blinding artificial glow (which I am addicted too).
Does the glowyness of the blushes show up in photos? Yes! They aren’t a poppin highlight but you do notice a glow from these blushes in selfies. I love to wear the highlighters from this kit, with a more intense highlight over the top on the high points of the cheeckbones.
Are they good for night time wear? You can easily wear the highlighters in this kit during the day. While they are glowy they aren’t so intense that some may find them to be too much at night. If anything, I wouldn’t find these glowy enough for night time wear.
Price: $16 AUD, $8.05 AUD (on Iherb)
Pros: The highlight shades are very glowy and wearable, the shades are very versatile to wear (even if you have fair skin), The palette is affordable and readily available. The packaging lets you plop out the highlighters and you can mix and match with the other ELF palettes.
Cons: On their own they won’t give you a blinding highlighter but I still find it very very glowy.
Overall thoughts: This highlighter palette is gorgeous. All the highlight shades are super wearable and versatile and perfect for an everyday highlight and if you want to amp things up which I do – I add a little bit of a more intense highlight over the top.
Would I repurchase? I do see myself repurchasing this highlighter kit!
