The highlight trend is still going strong and looks like it's here to stay. I have recently found the most amazing travel friendly highlighter.
As I'm sure you've seen all over social media, this highlighter is absolutely stunning and I was lucky enough to receive it from Influenster. It's a cream highlighter that is extremely pigmented and very blendable. There is only one shade available that is supposedly universal. I'm a pretty pale girl and this shows up beautifully on my skin, but I have seen pictures of it looking amazing on dark skin tones.
I'm a bit on the fence about the packaging. I can't decide if it looks sleek or cheap. Essentially it's just in a deodorant container and that doesn't scream "high end" to me. The knob is much better quality than any deodorant I've ever used though, so I guess that's a plus. The biggest issue I have with the packaging is the fact that it's built to be swiped directly onto your cheekbones, which I am not a fan of. I'd like it much better if it was potted.
I'm not a huge fan of applying it on my face directly from the tube. I feel like you just contaminate the entire product by rubbing it all over your face. So I prefer using a brush, sponge, or even your fingers. I find the best way is using a beauty blender so that you don't smudge your foundation.
They're available at Sephora or Marc Jacobs Beauty for $42, which is on the pricey side of highlighters. Honestly though, the amount of product, the pigmentation, and the lasting power makes it worth the high price.
What are some of your favorite highlighters? Do you prefer cream or powder?
