This highlighter comes in an ivory colored box with a bit of purple shimmer. It has an octagon shape, it’s light in weight, even though it has a mirror inside, which makes it practical to take with you wherever you go. However, it doesn’t have a blending brush.
There are 10 different shades of this highlighter. Two of these shades have their own box which are “Metal Moon” a white color with gold undertones, and “Trophy Wife” which is a gold metallic shade. As for the 8 other colors, they are divided into 4 boxes, each box contains two shades. These colors range from champagne, copper, light pink, and pearly. We noticed that the two shades of the same box are of the same color group but have different tones: One is stronger and more shimmery, the other is lighter and more subtle, so they can be used for daytime and for night time as well. We tried a shade that comes individually in its own box, which is Trophy Wife (White with gold undertones) that gives a strong touch of shimmer when applied, especially on a dark skin. We also tried two colors that come in the same box which are Mean Money (champagne color) and Hu$tla Baby (Champagne color, but darker and with more shimmer).
The texture of these highlighters is light and thin because it is a mixture of cream and powder, therefore it’s easy to apply. We noticed that there’s no need to apply it more than once to get the desired result. But you have to choose a suitable shade of color for you, because there are very light colors that you might not prefer if you are into a strong effect. As for its shimmer effect, it’s a soft one, especially for the light colors that are meant for daytime, so it can be applied without worrying about your skin being too bright in an exaggerated way. After trying these highlighters for a couple of times, we noticed that the color stays put for 5 to 6 hours before having to reapply.
How to use:
Pick the color that suits your skin tone, apply it on the cheeks, the area under the brows, the middle vertical line of the nose, and the collarbones, using your finger or using a highlighter brush. If you want to shift between a day makeup and a night one, you can apply the highlighter with the darker tone above the lighter one that you already applied as they will blend together.
