Highlighters are everywhere. You can find them in all price ranges, and in tons of formulas (liquid, powder, stick). But many of them are too much. Too intense, and way too shimmery. If you’re looking for a natural glow, one that can’t be seen from space, then you will love the new GLAMGLOW GLOWPOWDER!
Retailing for $42, this stunning palette contains three finely milled powders. It’s formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Brazilian golden clay, golden gemstones, and TEAOXI Vitalflower Complex – which means it enhances skin while giving it a glow.
These everyday powders are packaged in a rubber case, so it’s perfect for travel. It also features a large mirror for application on the go, and it has a soft coconut scent. I wasn’t expecting that detail, but it’s so good! The case is also resistant to makeup stains and dust. It’s been on my desk for weeks, and there’s not one speck of makeup on it – so different than NARS rubber casing!
FORMULA & EASE OF WEAR
The formula is smooth, easy to apply, and not overly pigmented. It’s free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates, and the hyaluronic acid is meant to infuse moisture back into skin. Unlike most highlighters, these are formulated to diffuse light, and blur imperfections, so you don’t have to worry about excessive shine or a frosty finish. Each powder applies easily, and can be built for a more intense finish. Even with a few applications, it’s still quite hard to overdue this, so it’s perfect for professionals, and those who don’t like in your face highlighters.
SHADES & SWATCHES
The shades included are Pearl Glow, Nude Glow, and Sun Glow. Although the two bronze shades look dark in the pan, they are surprisingly light once applied. Still, if you’re really fair I’d stick with Pearl Glow, and save the other two for summer (or you can mix them for a custom glow).
This palette is luminous without being shimmery, and as an added bonus the powders smell incredible. Although GLAMGLOW describes this as “a highlighter that’s so extra,” I think it’s really natural, and perfect for subtle looks. I love me an intense highlighter from time to time, but for daily use this is a great option. I highly suggest!
