Highlighter is something which I have always been touch and go with, I never knew exactly what to do with it when I really got into Makeup somewhat years ago and even now I’m a little reluctant when using. Thanks to good ol’ Youtube I am much more confident. I have had this High-Light Powder for a few years now and I believe it was from the Hey Sailor Collection back in 2012. This has remained unused until now.
When I first brought this it was literally too pretty to use with the pastel colours through it I literally kept it in its box for years. Highlighter has never been one of those things that I thought as essential when thinking about my makeup until recently. This is a gorgeous highlighter and with me being as pale as I am I thought this wouldn’t show up at all but it’s actually extremely pigmented and a little goes a long way.
This highlighting powder is made up of three shades, four actually. It has the base light beige colour throughout, it also has peach, pink and purple also. I was actually concerned this may look a little chalky on my skin but it was like applying satin. Not chalky at all. It’s a silky soft texture which is appealing to the eye for me anyway. Just the look of the colours made me want it.
Not only is it great for highlighting it’s actually pretty good as a blush on those days where I don’t want to appear like I’m wearing makeup but I don’t want to be completely bare faced either. This glides on the skin like silk, literally so lightweight and easy to blend too. I absolutely love this and I will not be leaving it behind when I go to Marrakech later on this year! I think at the moment I am using this more as a blush rather than highlight especially for the days where I don’t wear much makeup.
I know it’s bad that I’ve not thrown this out but it’s a lot of money and I trust my own makeup.
