J. Cat Beauty Pink Goddess You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter Review, Photos, Swatches

Pink Goddess

J. Cat Beauty Pink Goddess You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a medium, rosy copper with warm, brown undertones and flecks of larger gold sparkle over a more frosted sheen. The looser sparkle did not translate too noticeably on the skin, and after buffing and blending, it had a luminous sheen that was shy of being metallic (which also meant it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture!).

The formula is described as a “multi-dimensional baked formula” that has “all day long” wear with an “intense shimmer pigment.” I liked it more once I got a chance to apply it to cheeks, as the texture was drier and felt almost rough from the sparkles/looser feel of the powder on the skin. I had no trouble blending out and diffusing the edges of the powder highlighter on my cheeks, and it had a beautiful finish after it was applied. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that stayed on well for six and a half hours.

Looks really great on, but that arm swatch has me thinking glitter fallout. Glad that I’ve got CP Might Be instead! Which I use pretty often and always love how it looks. 😉

I don’t know where the loose sparkle/glitter goes (same is true with those matte eyeshadows with sparkle on top), but it did not seem to translate much on the face!

I am surprised that most of the dupes listed are described as “more shimmery”. The J Cat appears to have a lot more glitter than any of the others. Maybe I’m getting my shimmer description confused with a glitter description?

“Shimmery” could be a mix of shimmer and glitter etc. – so this having some particles of glitter that don’t translate to the face makes it less shimmery than a lot of other shades in the same color family as they look more metallic on the face.

I’ve seen some of the swatches of the other shades and they look really nice! I’m planning on picking up Crystal Sand soon!
