Hello everyone. Today I’m going to review the product that I didn’t want to buy when it first came out. It was like a big thing, drugstore brand like Catrice did a mineral highlighting powder. Why I didn’t want to get it at first? A lot of bloggers didn’t have nice things to say about this one. Most of them said that it doesn’t look good on skin, it’s too shimmery and a lot of other not so nice things. But, my friend and I were one day at drugstore, she bought this highlighter. We came to my house to have cup of coffee and of course we tried highlighter. I felt in love with how intense of a glow it is. I couldn’t stop looking at my makeup in mirror because it was such an intense glow. I’m sometimes into super glowy highlighter, so I needed this one in my life obviously. I got it the exact same day, yeap a little bit crazy, but I just wanted to try it and share my opinion with you guys.
So this highlighter is huge. You get 8g of product or 0.28 oz. It comes in transparent plastic packing with silver rim around highlighter’s pot. Writing on packing is silver also. On the back you have peachy sticker that has ingredients and just some information about highlighter. They only have one shade available and it is 010 – Light Infusion. So Catrice says that this is baked highlighting powder infused with minerals and fine light reflecting pearls for luminous look. You get sheer and buildable coverage for subtle glow all over. So, let’s start with my opinion on this product.
My opinion about this product is all over the place guys. I’m just not sure how I feel about it to be honest. I do like it, but for certain makeup look and certain occasion. It is intense and very glowy, but also very cool toned which sometimes just doesn’t go with my makeup. I love warm tones, I’m all about them with my makeup so this one doesn’t fit my specifications. I love to use it on night out, because as I said it is quite intense and you can build it up easily. As you can see on photos it is pinky shade with silver shimmer. What I’m going to say is that it can look really shimmery especially on sun light. It’s not that fine, to just give you glow without shimmer. To be honest I don’t mind shimmery highlighters on night out, because they really look pretty. But for day to day use, I’m not the biggest fan of them. Also, the formula is not buttery soft that I like when it comes to highlighters. This one is that not so smooth and soft formula, but the good thing is that it is really pigmented. It is really easy to blend and it doesn’t look patchy which is really important for me.
Over all this is really nice highlighter from drugstore. It is really affordable and over all good quality product. I would love it to be a little bit more warm toned and not straight up icy silver shimmer. But it is nice for people who love intense shine and glow. I still use it, not on day to day basis, but for a night out it is a must product and I use it for night time makeup almost every single time. But last couple of days I decided to wear this one every day, you’ll see how it looks on skin in next post. So stay tuned for that! You can see the swatch and pigmentation of this one in post here.
