Kiko Milano is an Italian brand that I love trying items from. They make one of my all time favorite blushes and their eyeshadow sticks are great too. When I spotted they now also do highlighters when I visited one of their stores, I was curious to try it. I was umming and arring between this one for their standard collection and a limited edition one. Thinking I would get more wear out of this one, I figured I would go with the lightest of the three in their permanent collection.

My experience with Essence palette, be it eyeshadow be it face palettes, is a bit hit or miss. The products are affordable and sadly that means that the quality isn’t always there. However, since the products never truly break the bank, I love trying them out when a new launch rolls around. For their S/S 2018 collection, Essence has released a new highlighter palette and I was curious to try it.

In the new Catrice line up, it is all about that glow. Now many of the products are dubbed ‘holographic’, but so far none of the products I have tried come even close to being truly holographic. That said, however, that doesn’t mean these products aren’t pretty or don’t work well. Case in point: the new Galactic liquid highlighter.

When I spotted that Catrice would be releasing a highlighter palette, I was curious. I am not a huge fan of highlighter palettes. Face palettes that include more versatility I can get down with, but a palette just with highlighters is not necessarily my cup of tea. But this promised a holographic glowing effect: the first time Catrice offers something like this and thus my curiosity got the best of me and I ordered this.

Often the products I try are very carefully picked out. I request and receive little to no PR. Most of the items I am just not that interested in, so I’d rather buy products that I love than receive lots of free stuff that I am not remotely interested in. So it hardly ever happens that I have a product lying about that I am not so curious after. However, when I placed an order at a Dutch makeup website last year, I received this highlighter as a freebee. Is it any good?

It’s getting darker and darker as we’re nearing the winter season and that means that any which way you can brighten up a day is very welcome. Makeup wise that means whipping out some extra highlighter. And what better way to do that than with a holographic highlighter? Essence has decided to bring out that extra sparkle and have introduced a holographic highlighter stick to their range. But is it any good?

NARS do some awesome cult makeup products. There are the Radiant Creamy Concealer, Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer for starters. Another product that fits into that long line of cult favorites is NARS Albatross. This highlighter used to be raved about, but that was back when highlighting wasn’t really a thing. Such a shame that this doesn’t get more love, because it’s a great highlight for an everyday look.
