Lilac Lust

Pretty Vulgar Lilac Lust Shimmering Swan HighlighterPretty Vulgar Lilac Lust Shimmering Swan Highlighter ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a bright, medium lavender with strong, warm pink undertones and an iridescent bluish-violet, metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and it was the type of pigmentation where a little went a long way. Luckily, the powder was smooth, cream-like, and blendable, so it was easy to diffuse and blend out the edges or simply to use a lighter hand to get less product for sheerer coverage if preferred. At semi-opaque or greater coverage, it seemed to emphasize my skin texture slightly. It wore well for nine hours on me.

I didn’t want to want this, but it’s so pretty! And I have one of their highlighters already so I know how good the formula is. Mayyyybe going on my wishlist…

This is so beautiful. I am really considering this. I don’t really need anymore highlighters but I don’t have any of the dupes and I think I could pull it off if I use a light hand.

I feel like Pretty Vulgar is the least talked about brand at Sephora. A week after the initial release, everyone stopped talking about them and I never see anyone list them in product lists for looks!

This is a really pretty color!

In this year of Pantone ultraviolet, THIS is exactly what I was waiting for! A perfect looking highlighter in the shade that isn’t too cool-toned for a warmer toned person to rock! I obviously love this, huh??

I immediately put this on my wish list, so pretty ? I love CP Swirl so I don’t need this, but I feel it’s purple beauy calling me. But I will only answer during the VIB Sale!

OMG ! I was thinking that this reminded me of something and then it clicked : It looks exactly like the shade Twilight in the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk eyeshadow palette !

I just received mine from Sephora and it was completely shattered. What a disappointment and mess. 🙁
