Highlighters Collection

Since highlighters became a thing, I’ve been in the hunt for the perfect one for me. I have tried several, but with my skin tone (medium/dark olive) it is not easy to find one that will really stand out.

I am presenting you here the ones that I have tried and at the end I will tell you which ones are my favorites and why.

highlighters

  1. Sculpting trio contour – Younique
  2. Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle – MAC
  3. Star Powder #946 – Make Up Forever
  4. Naked Flushed in Strip – Urban Decay
  5. Tawny Shimmer Brick and Lip Kit – Bobby Brown
  6. High Beam – Benefit
  7. Gold Bronzing Powder – Bourjois
  8. Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss – Sleek Make UP
  9. Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette – NYX

Now, if I have to choose a top 3, it will be like this:

  • Soft and Gentle by MAC because it really stands out beautifully and works will almost all skin tones
  • Bobby Brown’s shimmer brick because it blends so well and looks very natural, still you can see the glow
  • And the NYX strobe palette, because of the great selection of colors

The other ones are good products, but there is nothing really special about them.

I hope you find this useful and please, let me know which ones are your favorite highlighters, I am willing to try some new ones!

Younique comes to France!

201601191019708055

I am so excited about the launch of Younique cosmetic products in France next February. I have heard so many great things about this brand that I can not wait to try their make up, but also their skincare line! For the moment I have been lucky enough to get 3 products and so far, so good! They are beautiful!

Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette

20160119-1097840729

This is a beautiful eyeshadow palette with nude colors, perfect for everyday looks, but I can imagine making a smoky eye with Forthright! It can be a good alternative to the Urban Decay, Naked Basics palette, perfect to carry in your bag or to take with you if you travel. It comes in a very sturdy cardboard packaging, and it has a good size mirror that you can actually use!

Swatches will come soon!

Refreshed Rose Water

1453204499755

I have always been obsessed with Rose Water, it was one of my mothers favorite skincare products and she always had a beautiful young skin! So when I saw that Younique had this product, I had to have it! Lets see if it is as beautiful as my Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with rose petals. For the moment I just can say that the scent is very subtle, so if you are not big in roses scent, it would not be a problem.

Blending Buds

1453204659108

This 2 little ones really intrigue me! I am always looking for the perfect sponge to apply my foundation & concealer. The Beauty Blender works fine, but it is expensive and stains easily, so I am excited to try these! I will keep you posted.

If you know this brand, please let me know which are your favorite products so I can also try them!
