2017 Favourite: Pressed Highlighters

Lancome Dual Finish Multi-tasking Illuminating Highlighter ($53 CAD): Shimmering Buff

Lancome highlighter review

This proves that the hyped products aren’t always the best ones. Don’t be afraid to explore makeup on your own. For the longest time, the only products in my vanity were ones that had the hype surrounding them. So I let my curiosity lead me through the Sephora site and found this Lancome highlighter in Shimmering Buff and haven’t looked back since. The dual part comes in the way you can use this powder: wet or dry and both work beautifully on the skin. I use this wet with a beauty blender or dry with a brush or even my fingers. Although this is a powder, it feels so soft and creamy to the touch, has micro shimmer that disperse on the skin to give you a glow and lasts all day on me. I cant rave enough about this product and want to buy all the colours to wear as highlighter, eyeshadow and a lip topper.

Hourglass Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette ($72 CAD)

Hourglass Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette

Normally I run when I hear the word metallic whether it’s on the lips, eyes and definitely on the face (it was never a trend that appealed to me, although I admire how beautiful it can look on others!). These powders remain true to the ambient lighting powder formula, in that they are extremely soft, fine and the effect is wonderfully detectable on the skin.  You get an incredible shine on the cheek that looks like a glow. There are extremely fine micro shimmers in this product but when blended out on the skin, the shine super feeds the shimmer to leave you looking absolutely radiant.
