I love a good highlighter, which I’m sure comes as no surprise to regular readers! Many of my favorites are limited edition, but I also have a few favorites that you can get year-round and never have to worry about running out of. Check ‘em out:
I’m often asked for recommendations for blushes, and I thought I’d put together an updated, three-part series on blushes for fair, medium, and dark skin tones (I’ve done this at least once before). I’d love for you to share your favorites for your skin tone as well The more suggestions, the better! (Keep in mind, this is only a jumping off point–five recommendations at various price points, finishes, and undertones, but there are certainly many more that would suit!)
It had good color payoff, but as it is a light-medium color and I’m about medium in skin tone, the blush isn’t very visible on me. I think this would work much better on other skin tones. The texture is lightly creamy but dries down to a mostly matte, powder-like finish–there’s no tackiness after it sets (which is shortly after it is applied to the skin). It is difficult to overdo, as the formula is very forgiving and easily blended out for softer, sheerer color if desired. The formula was long-wearing and stayed on for eight and a half hours before starting to fade.
This is/was available at Bloomingdale’s, but it may only be available in-stores. It is available through Illamasqua’s website as well.
