OFRA x NikkieTutorials Space Baby Highlighter Review & Swatches

Space Baby

OFRA Space Baby Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a bright, bluish-white with a metallic sheen that shifted from icy blue to icy violet. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-like, texture that dense but was still soft enough that I could pick up product with typical, tapered highlighting brushes. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin, blended with ease along the edges, and yielded an intense glow that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.35 oz. - $82.86 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "liquid to baked technology" that has "unparalleled pigment payoff" that can be used as a highlighter as well as an eyeshadow or as a blush topper." It's a very pigmented formula with a high-shine, metallic finish that will be most suitable for someone who wants an intense highlighter. The texture was denser but not dry or difficult to work with, so it seemed to melt onto the skin the more I buffed and blended the highlighter on. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

So far, I have not liked any bluish highlighters and I don’t like the seen-from-space highlighter look, but I think if this shade can be applied with a super light hand, I might actually be able to pull it off.

When I saw the announcement for highlighters on this I thought, “Yeah, peak Nikkietutorials right there.”

I’m glad her highlighters are rated A in your book. Highlighters is what Nikkietutorials is known for and this collab proves it.

Personally I don’t wear them for their intended purpose on the face (cheek/nose/forehead/cupid’s bow). Highlighters go all over my eyelids, though.

I wanted this highlight pretty bad, but the silicones in the formulation will keep me from purchasing. I’ll be looking through your dupes list for a possible alternative that won’t mess with my sensitive skin. Shame, cuz this is so pretty and right up my alley!
