After recieving a ton of Eidi on Eid-Al-Fitr, I decided to spend the first bit on makeup. Highlighter is a look I’ve really been into lately but I didn’t own an actual one. I’ve been using an eyeshadow from a mini eyeshadow palette I have and it worked wonderfully. However, I thought it was time I bought myself a proper highlighter.
I saw plenty of amazing reviews for this product online and decided to buy it after accepting the fact that Canada doesn’t sell more affordable highlighters from brands life Elf, Wet n Wild, and Essence. The reviews said that it was a strong highlight and the shimmer didn’t actually show once applied to the skin.
I was still a little double minded on buying this though because I rarely spend money on makeup, and this product cost a little under $10. Eventually I set my mind on this highlighter and purchased it.
I was so excited to try it out! I swatched it on my fingers and thought the colour was beautiful. But unfortunately, once applied to the skin, you couldn’t see it. It felt a little powdery as applying it and you couldn’t see a thing.
Then I decided to use a brush and I got the same results. All I could see was glitter.
Next I decided to wet my brush and apply it. This did help a little, but it still wasn’t as intense as I wanted it to be. Fortunately though, it was build able.
But once I got it to the intensity that I liked, the highlight looked more of a white, glittery streak rather than a golden sheen.
I was super disappointed to see that it wouldn’t blend and it had so much glitter!
I did try this highlighter a few times after the first time hoping that it would look better this time, but it never did.
I really wish I didn’t buy this product and I do not recommend it if you don’t like a glittery highlight.
