My Current Highlighting Obsessions

Hello my lovelies!. I know its summertime everywhere, and this may be a cliché,  being that (almost) everyone needs that summer glow, but baby I need to glow year round!. Some of my picks are not meant to be used for highlighting, but really they are so multipurpose that you can put them anywhere you like.

This first product I am going to tell you about is not a highlighter that has shimmer in it, rather a natural brightening effect, hence the name, “Brightening Eye Base.” This is meant to highlight under eye circles, but works great also as a “natural” highlighter. Tony Moly is a Korean brand that I love, really love. You can purchase this HERE which is Beauty Net Korea, which is a site that I LOVE for truly authentic Korean products. You cant beat the price @ 6.65 U.S. !!!

Product number 2 is more of a recent find for me. My wonderful Husband brought this beautiful product home to me and I fell in love with it immediately feel hard for it!. Its Makeup Forever Star powder. According to their website, this is how they describe it;  The Star Powder is a silky powder that catches the light and gives the skin an intense sparkle and unparalleled shine. They come in 35 shades!, 20.00 each. I am sorry to say that nowhere on the packaging has the shade listed. You can purchase these beauties HERE on their website. IMG_7668

This next product took me by surprise!. I love several of Elf Cosmetics items but you know they do have some products that make me think, “What?”.

This is called, Highlighting Dewy Drops and was released verily recently. It comes in this one shade, not named, but its a champagne/gold tone that takes my breath away. It glides on perfectly, no smell, and long lasting as well. You can purchase this HERE at a bargain of 4.00.IMG_7652

Elf released their Illuminating Palette a few months back. I have heard mixed reviews but I really love it, especially the shade I am going to show you!. They are all buttery soft, and lasts for at least 10 hours on my skin. You can purchase this HERE for 6.00.

I have yet another Elf product that I was wowed by. We all know the big, HD boxed powders right?. This is a shade that was re-named, it was called Soft luminance, now its, Shimmer. It is a beautiful shimmery highlight, that leans more pink/ white once on the cheekbone. HERE is where you can find it at a steal of 6.00.IMG_7675

Kevyn Aucon Liquid Highlighter in Candle Light is unlike anything I’ve ever tried. I went to So Choix, found HERE Which is a place where you can try super high end cosmetics at 5.00 a pop to see if you like the product or not. I choose this and I think I need the full size because its just breath taking. The formula is perfection and it lasts all day on my skin. You can purchase it HERE for 52.00

The price is steep, but, you get an ounce of this product, in pump form, I bet it would last you over a year because the pigment is on another level of greatness!.

Wet N Wild is a brand that I really enjoy. This Mega Shimmer I purchased on E-bay because sadly I cant find these anymore in store. This is a perfect white shimmer, its called White Lotus. I went to E-bay, typed in White Lotus and their are a huge amount on the site which I will link; HERE prices ranging from 3.00-7.00.

Starcrushed Minerals Highlighter(s) Swatch and Review

Hello my lovelies!!. So happy your here and I hope you enjoy my review!. But before we get into these beautiful highlighters I must thank all of you for the prayers, and love filled messages for my baby boy, Gabriel. The doctor assured us that he is cancer free and you know how good that makes me feel!. Gabriel is an angel from God, my precious, Mama’s love.

Star Crushed Minerals is an Indie brand, and you know how I adore Indie brands!. These highlighters took me by surprise, quality is just perfect. They all retail for 8.00 for 3 Grams of product, which comes in a 10 Gram, sifter included screw-on jar for convenient usage. They have a massive color selection of 43 as of today. I really love the color range!. I personally only purchased 5, recently, but you know I’ll be getting more!. They are not a bit patchy and they do not have that look of just “sitting” on top of your skin. Here are the colors I have.
