I’m so excited to be back and I have some great posts lined up for you guys in the near future. Just to update you I have now finished my undergraduate degree and I am fully flexible to focus on this blog in the Summer so I am super happy!
I thought I would kick this off by reviewing one of my favourite presents from my birthday in April which was this gorgeous highlighter by Jeffree Star Cosmetics that my best friend nicely gave to me. The colour is called Mint Condition and is available on Beauty Bay here. The packaging for this product I think is very high quality it definitely is iconic with the bright pink colour. The price is quite reasonable for a mid-range brand I would say (not quite high end but not drugstore) as the highlight is £25.50 but for the size of the pan, which is probably bigger than my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and that’s quite big so you get your money’s worth. It also has a huge high quality mirror which I absolutely love for using in my make-up bag it’s just right.
I know that the colour looks a bit daunting if you haven’t used this type of highlighter before but I have to tell you it’s absolutely stunning. I did do a swatch for you guys on my hand and that is just from dipping my finger in very lightly as I really don’t want to ruin the pattern in the pan (typical me). I found the swatch to be beautiful but not half as intimidating as what you probably first thought.
You can use this product sparingly to give a beautiful glow or go all out which is what I did in one of the pictures today just to show you how gorgeous it is on. As you can probably see the green is not really that visible, in real life it only reflects green in the light so I feel like this is a really wearable product. The undertones look sort of champagne colour when it is on the skin so I feel this would suit a lot of skin tones and I can’t wait to try this colour in the summer! Also, I have tried it using my finger as an eye shadow for the centre of the lid and it is so pretty too.
I feel like this product is best using a fan brush which is what I used as using a finger to apply would leave quite a green colour but using a fan brush or blending brush just to blend it nicely onto the cheeks was stunning. This product has officially kicked off my highlighter addiction and I now want hundreds more!
Overall I would highly recommend this product and would love to get the Manny MUA collab one that is also on Beauty Bay and looks super nice!
Hope you enjoyed this post and I’m looking forward to posting a lot more regularly than before.
