It is definitely the best highlighter i've ever used. It blends really nicely and gives an amazing natural shine,it does not have that awful shimmer that many highlighters have that's why I am totally in love with that product. I would totally recommend it to anyone that is looking for a new highlighter.It is also great for beginners,you cant go wrong with this highlighter.
My problem with other highlighters is that the had glitter instead of soft shimmers in them. The glitter would excentuate my pores and just make me look like a disco ball! This doesn't do that!! It has gives such a natural and glowy look to the skin. It doesn't make you look greasy either! It has small shimmers that compliment almost all skin tones & types. Fabulous!
love it! long lasting and multi-use.. what more can you ask for? this is my new favourite highlighter.. its just amazing! it catches the light beautifully and is very easily blendable, which ive found to be my biggest problems with highlighters such as high beam.
It's a super pretty color!!! The name and the pictures of it are very misleading though! I swatches it in the store and when I brought it home it was a totally different color..... It was also like a bit oily when I first opened it... Both are gorgeous colors thought and as I'm using it more and more it gets better and prettier.... It's very pretty
...it creases. Bummer.
I've been on the hunt for a super easy wash of colour for my eyes. Like, slap it on with some mascara and hit the door, kind of shade.
I described this to the sales associate and after a few swatches of the paint pots, she turned to the cream color bases and suggested Root.
It truly is the perfect colour I was looking for (an everyday, natural... your lids but better... kind of shade). It was ridiculously easy to put on with a finger and looked gorgeous with a teeny bit of dark brown shadow to line the outer third of my lash line.
I have oily lids and use a primer which works like a dream when I am using powders, but even with primer this creased on me. I will try to set it with some translucent powder and see how it goes next time.
I will say that a quick rub to blend it out when it creases does bring it back to the perfect wash. The trouble is having to think about that and do it. Grrr.
I have the shade mid tone sepia which is basically a really red toned brown color. I like to use this to contour my face in the winter time when my face is super dry. But in the warmer days, it feels a little too heavy on my skin and I would sweat it off. But overall, it's a nice natural looking color that lasts pretty long when its not humid or hot, and it doesn't look orange at all. I also sometimes use it as a cream eyeshadow or gel eyeliner obviously over a primer or else it'll crease like crazy!
This was bought as a present by my brother, if I had got the chance to go and buy it myself I would have bought pearl to use as a highlight. I've only had one bad experience with this product and I don't know why to be honest, I applied it on a little bit of powder and it made my makeup look patchy - not sure why! But when I'm in the sun in Spain it will be the perfect highlight!
I love the color pearl. I use it as a highlighter, and it gives my face that lovely glowing look I've always been looking for. It is so easy to apply. You just sweep it across your cheek bones and you instantly look awake and ready for the day!
