Stunner

Tarte Stunner Tarteist PRO Glow Liquid Highlighter ($29.00 for 0.56 oz.) is a champagne gold with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. The coverage was buildable from semi-sheer to opaque, but for totally opaque results, I would recommend applying a semi-sheer layer, allow it to set, and then go back with a little more but would just pat it over the areas you want to intensify the most and do minimal blending to avoid lifting any base products.

It’s a liquid highlighter in a squeeze-tube format that’s supposed to be buildable “from sheer to intense” with a more “hybrid gel-cream” texture that can be applied on its own or mixed in with base products. It had a creamier consistency–much denser and more gel-like compared to many highlighters–that stretches out well on the skin. It took a little longer to dry down, but it did set and did not feel tacky or wet afterward. It was fairly easy to use on bare skin, with foundation, or applied on top of liquid foundation or over loose powder. Used on its own as a cheek highlighter, it wore well for eight hours on me.

The thing is: why use a trickier to use liquid highlighter if it doesn’t give you some special effect or benefit to an easier to use powder one? I don’t see anything special about this finish, in fact it looks less highlight-y than most powders.
