I’m fairly new to using highlighter, I’m still working on the technique to apply it. I love how it gives you a dewy look and your makeup can go from day to night with a pop of highlight. With my skin tone, it’s suggested that I use a champagne/pearlescent highlighter. I got a sample of the Urban Decay After Glow 8-Hour Highlighter in Sin which is a champagne shade and it’s beautiful. I also got the Limited Edition Mac x Star Trek Luna Luster Trip the Light Fantastic Powder when I went to the MAC sale → click here to see what I got from the sale. It was described as a ‘sheer wash of soft rose shimmer.’ The flower design on this highlighter is so pretty, I almost don’t want to ruin it.
I don’t know if it’s just Rexall that’s getting rid of Wet N Wild from their stores (I can’t remember if Shoppers Drug Mart had the brand), but they only had a small section full of clearance items and there was barely anything left. I was able to snag the last one of the MegaGlo Highlighter in Precious Petals. When I was looking up the shades I wanted Blossom Glow or Botanic Dream because they looked light enough to suit my skin tone. Even though it looks quite light in the pictures, Precious Petals is a peachy gold and it’s a bit too peachy for me. It just looks like I have a bruise or I misplaced some bronzer and topped it off with some highlight (pictured above is a swatch with just one swipe of my finger and no primer). Despite being the wrong shade, it’s absolutely beautiful and I get why it was rated #1 this year. It’s smooth and velvety and not at all chalky. It’s a drug store brand so you can get multiple ones (if you can find them) for the price of a high end one. I think I will use it as a shimmery eyeshadow. I bought a few other highlighters so after I review those, I’ll swatch all the ones I have to compare them.

JENCAT’S RATING: 5/5
This highlighter is amazing. I can’t believe it was less than $10!
