High on HighlightersI used to think highlighter = shimmerbomb so for a huge chunk of my life, I’ve missed out on the glory of highlighters. I had NARS Albatross for the looongest time, but never got around to abusing it because when I used it the first time, I felt it was too glowy that it translated too much to ‘greasy’ and ‘oily’. I had no idea I used the wrong brush (dense kabuki brush! *slaps forehead*) to apply it which left me with a little too much glow than I wanted. For this entry, I’ll be sharing a few highlighters and complexion powders in my stash that I’ve finally figured out how to apply properly hence giving me that much-coveted glow without looking like an oil slick.
MAC Whisper of GiltA pearly champagne metallic that’s the frostiest highlighter in the bunch. When I say shimmerbomb, this is the closest in my stash I can think of. I have to use this with a light hand, else it can emphasize those pores we all try to hide. The shade, though, is very pretty and when applied properly really gives off a perceptible glow. A glow that you can put your finger on.
NARS AlbatrossAlbatross is a cool-toned ivory with a light golden sheen. Again, this gives off a detectable glow, same as Whisper of Gilt without the frosty finish. The sheen is noticeably yellow/golden upon closer inspection so I’m not sure how this would look on very pale girls. But for medium-dark skintones, I believe this highlighter is a hit. It has no glitter particles at all so no pore-emphasizing features here.
Hourglass Incandescent LightIncandescent Light (similar here) is a soft nude with a slightly pink base and the slightest touch of peach. This has the tiniest bit of microshimmer that doesn’t emphasize pores but gives off an undetectable glow. As compared to the first two above, Incandescent is much much more subtle, almost imperceptible. I love the effect of this but if I had to purchase it individually for $43? I would be looking for a dupe instead (insert Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight here).
Hourglass Dim LightAlthough not a highlighter and more of a finishing powder, I included Dim Light because for some reason when I use it right, it leaves my skin ‘glowing’ in a non-glowy way. It’s more complexion-perfecting, to be exact. In the swatches, it looks like a typical face powder but it has blurring features with a very non-powdery finish.
Hourglass Mood LightMood Light is a soft sheer lavender with an illuminating sheen. It has a pale pink undertone that is said to mimic a romantic evening glow. On my yellow-undertoned skin, it has a subtle brightening, illuminating effect that can’t be detected. The beautiful powder sinks into the skin without looking at all powdery (a feature I love about these Hourglass powders!).
Burberry Nude RadianceSaved the best for last! My favorite highlighter to date – Burberry Nude Radiance. Um, just check out the almost obliterated embossing on the thing. This is a super soft, creamy powder that plainly looks just white – but has the slightest luminosity that can barely be seen in sunlight. It has absolutely no shimmer particles but gives off a beautiful cool-toned glow that looks so so natural. I swear, whenever I wear this – I always get “you have such beautiful skin!” comments. No fail! If I were to repurchase any highlighter in this list, it would be this. Full review with photos soon!
