Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar

IMG_0600

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a review on yet another highlighter. I seriously have a highlighting obsession which I need to keep under control. Today I bring you a new drugstore highlighter find. I wanted to let you know if this particular highlighter is worth it or not.

This highlighter is one for those who want a natural glow. I knew when I picked it up that it may not be a highlight that I was going to reach for special events. I picked it up specifically for every day wear.

As you can see this highlight is a natural and is subtle. If you aren’t a fan of a disco ball highlight then this might be the highlight for you. I like to layer this with my e.l.f cream highlight it really brings it home without it looking like I caked on a bunch of products.

Have you tried this Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Gold Bar? What is your go to drugstore highlight? 

Have a great day and I will see you on Friday.

e.l.f Shimmering Highlight Powder -Starlight Glow

IMG_0553

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a first impression on this e.l.f. Shimmering Highlight Powder in Starlight Glow. I have been trying to branch out from all of my high-end highlighters and give some drugstore brands a try. Off the bat I had heard some pretty good things about the e.l.f highlighters. The price is very affordable ($6) for what you are getting and I wanted to see for myself what all this talk was about.

What e.l.f states about this highlight: This lightweight, versatile pressed shimmer highlighting powder helps amplify your natural radiance with a refined glow. Microfine particles blur lines to create a soft focus effect on the skin. Designed to highlight and reflect light for a luminous, photo-ready finish.

They have 7 other shades available in this same formula, you can shop them here. Overall I like that I can build this highlight up as much as I want and can wear it on a every day basis without feeling like I look like a disco ball.

I am really curious to check out the other shades that they have available for this bronzer. I definitely see this bronzer staying in my makeup routine for a little while longer.

Have you tried this particular bronzer? Any drugstore highlighters you recommend I should try? 

Have a great day!

My Favorite High-end Highlighters

IMG_0253

Happy Monday Everyone!

This past weekend I went to a local beauty convention and it got me thinking about how when I started my makeup journey I didn’t know how to distinguish between what kind of product was going to work with my skin and the products that the beauty gurus were “selling me”. I am easily steered into peer pressure and ended up buying product that completely sucked. If I had to tell my younger self what products I should be investing in I would want her to know this about high-end highlighters.

Highlighting can be such a intimidating thing so start with a versatile product that will give you more bang for your buck. I do have to point out that the highlights I mention come from my collection and there are plenty of other great highlights, but these are the ones I wish I knew about sooner.

IMG_0247

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette will provide you all you need until you are ready to move onto a more power punching highlight. This palette has three shades that can be used all over the skin. It’s soft enough to be worn every day and can be built upon each other to create a more dramatic look for school dances and parties.

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlight is a next level highlighter. It brings two different tones that allow you to mix and create a really show stopping look. The Mean Money highlighter can be worn every day and if you mix it with Hu$tla Baby it creates a really show stopping look.

This Dose of Colors Highlighter by the Desi X Katy is one of my absolute favorites. This highlighter look a bit dark in the pan, but when applied to my skin it’s absolutely stunning. If I build it up it definitely is a show stopper.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post style.

Let me know what other beauty product I should do next?

Have a great weekend and I will see you all on Monday!

Review: HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Palette

IMG_6113

*Sorry for the low light pictures, but light reflects off of this like crazy!*

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do this review since this product was the talk of the town. This was another splurge I did when the Sephora VIB sale was going on, many months ago. I promise I bought some actual things I needed not just new makeup. You can find this palette at sephora This is no longer available :(.

IMG_6108

The first thing you see is that the packaging of this palette is reflective which makes it really hard to photograph. It is a very sleek and clean design. If you hate finger prints all over your makeup you might want to turn away and leave this post NOW! This packaging holds fingerprints like it’s is job. It doesn’t bother me but hey it might to some of you.

IMG_6111

IMG_6117

This palette brings:
-Dim Lighting
-Incandescent Light
-Radiant Light

The two powders I gravitate to the most are Dim Light and Radiant Light. These two particular shades compliment my skin tone very well. The Incandescent Light is a bit too light/shimmery for a highlighting powder so I haven’t used that too many times.
Overall I really like that I was able to try three different Hourglass powders without breaking the bank. Was this palette necessary? NO. Absolutely not, but it will be one that I will use all year around for that natural highlight/glow.

Do you own this palette? What is your favorite highlighter/ face powder?
