1 Arctic White

Make Up For Ever 1 Arctic White Star Lit LiquidMake 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.

These are fun to look at but I just haaate liquid formulas! Probably because I bought a set of Lorac 3D Liquid Lustre shimmer a few holidays ago and it was one of the worst products I’ve ever used. It was impossible to spread evenly or build, and I also remember th slight burn when I applied those to my eyelids. Now I’m turned off to liquid shimmer forever, lol. These just look too similar!

I am looking forward to the reviews of the loose powder, though ?

I’m a magpie, but this glitter is too chunky even for me. IDK, not my style, but for those interested, I do wish the formula was better. Alcohol is high up on the ingredient list, so wonder if that’s causing the temporary burning sensation near the eye? And the glitter is a hassle to remove. IDK, I feel like the market for this is somewhat limited, and most of us can only wear on certain occasions, and that MUFE could’ve done better with this formula.

That’s my guess, Katherine! Two of my topical prescriptions are heavy on the alcohol, so my skin obviously tolerates it fine, but I don’t apply either to my eyes, lol!

Oh no! If it needs tape to remove it all, that’s no bueno! Especially on my not very youthful lids, that could be a lot of extra tugging on any lids, but on mine, nope! As a cheek highlight, this could be fun for going to a concert or something.

Yeah, it was tough to get it all off! If one doesn’t mind a few stray glitters in bed, no big deal! I have to be careful, though, as I wear contacts only while I sleep, so I have to remove everything or else it feels like I have sand in my eye, lol.

Oh my!! Those sparkles are quite “in your face” aren’t they! I like these as a highlighter already but I’d like to see more swatches on medium skintone before committing! Did you find it easiest to blend with your fingers or a brush?

I preferred my fingers, but for a brush, I would use something that’s fairly flat, a little fluffy at the end but not too dense.

“Traveling glitter,” burning and needing tape to remove = an “F” for me. Yikes! Thank you Christine for reviewing this.

I don’t think these liquid Star Lits are going to be for me — I prefer shimmer/sheen to glitteriness, generally. I’m glad they came out with a white option, but the multicolored glitter confuses it for me.

Yeah, if you aren’t into real glitter/sparkle (like you can see the particles), I would definitely pass. I find that the liquids look more or less the same on, because they all have the same multi-colored glitter.
