Make Up For Ever 2 Pink Beige Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a very light pink with warmer undertones and multi-colored glitter. It doesn’t add real color on my skin tone, and instead, it’s more like a wash of multi-colored sparkle and glitter on the cheeks (or eyes).

The Star Lit Liquid formula is described as a “lightweight, multi-use, pearlescent formula” that is a “sheer, water-based formula” that is buildable and won’t feel sticky on the skin. If you like a subtle highlighter, this formula is not for you. And if you don’t like glitter, this formula is definitely not for you! If you like glittery highlighters, I think this might be up your alley. The consistency was thin, water-like, and felt cool going on. The applicator is a lot like a nail polish brush, and it’s okay for getting initial color onto an area, but it is not practical to use it as a blending tool or anything like that. I had the best luck using my fingertip to pat and spread the glitter on the skin (cheeks or eyes) as a sheer wash.

The consistency is watery but dries down quickly to a non-sticky finish. I felt like I had just enough time to spread it out before it dried down completely, but I recommend working one area at a time. It looked subtle at a glance and in photos, because it had a sheerer coverage level (sheer to medium, at most) and doesn’t have a the fully reflective finish as a traditional powder highlighter, but in person, the glitter catches light and moves more. I could see this working well lightly patted over a blush or another highlighter for an extra kick, which I think helps this product look more cohesive on the skin (as well as on the eyes).

As a cheek highlighter, it lasted for eight hours with some of the glitter had traveled noticeably from where I had initially applied it. As an eye product, it held up fairly well and didn’t start to crease until after seven hours of wear, but there was a bit of fallout–not bad but definitely a bit.

2 Frozen Gold

Make Up For Ever 2 Frozen Gold Star Lit Powder ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, golden white that flashed white gold to a darker, greenish gold and had stronger, yellower tones to it overall. The finish was high-shine and nearly metallic but did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture.

The Star Lit Powder is supposed to be an “ultra-fine” loose powder that can be used to “highlight eyes, lips and cheeks” either wet or dry to “customize intensity and luminosity.” The powder was finely-milled, smooth, and very soft across all the shades I tried in the range, and the pigmentation was mostly opaque even dry, though damp application made it more concentrated and adhere strongly to wherever it was initially applied. Overall, I felt a little went a long way, so even though there was not much product in the container, it would still take many uses to finish it.

It took a few applications to figure out the best way to apply it as a highlighter on cheeks, as the opening is rather small and the product quite concentrated, so I often found myself with very strong, distinct stripes of highlight across the cheekbones that took some buffing to blend and diffuse out. It was better to lightly tap the brush in the opening, and then dab it in the interior of the lid, which had the effect of diffusing and dispersing the loose powder better throughout the brush. This yielded a glowing effect that still produced higher coverage but took the work out of blending it out. On the eyes, it was easier to get full distribution onto a brush, as eye brushes are smaller, but if you wanted a sheer wash of color, I would recommend the same technique as I used for applying ita s a cheek highlighter with a fluffy eye brush.

2 Frozen Gold had good color coverage that was easiest to work with on the cheeks dry for a more diffused, medium to full coverage effect, while damp application would give a much more concentrated, more metallic finish that was a bit harder to really diffuse. If you want to use it damp, I would suggest applying a sheerer layer in the area, softening those edges, and then using a damp brush to apply a bit more (or just go over what was initially applied) right where you want the most intense effect. For eyes, I preferred damp application, which yielded the most opaque coverage with the last product, but for a soft or sheer wash of color, I would recommend using it dry. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, and the wear time was great–eight to eight and a half hours–for both eyes and cheeks. On lips, it is most practical patted onto another lip color, as alone it does feel like one is wearing a loose powder, but I did notice that it often got lost on anything that had more slip than a matte to semi-matte lipstick.

Make Up For Ever 1 Arctic White Star Lit Liquid ($24.00 for 0.15 fl. oz.) is a bright, silvery white with multi-colored glitter. It had sheer, buildable coverage (to semi-opaque) that was mostly “pigmented” in the form of glitter.

The Star Lit Liquid formula is described as a “lightweight, multi-use, pearlescent formula” that is a “sheer, water-based formula” that is buildable and won’t feel sticky on the skin. If you like a subtle highlighter, this formula is not for you. And if you don’t like glitter, this formula is definitely not for you! If you like glittery highlighters, I think this might be up your alley. The consistency was thin, water-like, and felt cool going on. The applicator is a lot like a nail polish brush, and it’s okay for getting initial color onto an area, but it is not practical to use it as a blending tool or anything like that. I had the best luck using my fingertip to pat and spread the glitter on the skin (cheeks or eyes) as a sheer wash.

On the cheeks, it lasted for eight hours with some traveling glitter particles, but a lot of it stayed in place. The effect was more sparkling than reflective like your average highlighter. On the eyes, it had some fallout over time and faint creasing after six hours. It wore a bit longer and better patted over another powder eyeshadow, and I didn’t have any issues with it creasing when I applied it that way. The formula burned slightly going on my eyelids (it was fine on my cheeks, though) but then dried down and didn’t cause issues. As a heads up: the glitter is difficult to remove completely, so there were noticeable particles on my eyes/face after cleansing multiple times. If I used tape, I could grab them off the skin, but it was a lot of effort to get the last dozen or so particles off of the skin.
