Nykaa Strobe and Glow Liquid Highlighter | REVIEW | justgetbeautiful
It’s the festive season and just the right time to add that extra bit of bling to your makeup. I’m not a highlighter person…. but this launch was way too tempting. Nykaa already has a collection of powder highlighters & now they have launched their liquid highlighter range.
SHADES AVAILABLE : 3
The product comes in an outer cardboard packaging.
Its best to retain the outer packaging as the actual product comes in a glass bottle & to avoid any kind of breakage the product needs to be kept in the cardboard packaging.
This way you can store or travel without any worries.
Price : Rs 699
Qty : 20ml
Shelf life : 3 yrs
Product is Made in China
Is cruelty free
It comes in a very beautiful frosted glass dropper bottle with a golden cap & a white dropper.
The bottle comes in a plastic wrap with a label stuck on it. And once you rip off the plastic wrap the label comes off too. But no worries all information regarding the product is given in the outer packaging.
It’s very easy to dispense the product with the dropper.
The dropper itself is made of glass, it is fragile so handle with care to all those who are typical butter fingers 🙂
I purchased Glazed bronze( a bronzy shade with a tinge of pink & champagne to it). This shade looks so pretty, it looks like molted golden lava.
Formula is very thick. You need to work a bit fast with it as it sets very quickly. It has a nice shine & there is no glitter in this.It blends well on foundation as well as when topped with a compact powder. Very little product is required as it is a thick formula with intense highlight.
For a very heavy & intense highlight you can apply it in a patting motion. This way you will get that intense glow.You might want to keep in mind that if you go a bit heavy handed & pat the product in make sure you do not do it in areas where there are pores or fine lines coz this will definetely enhance them. To avoid that i spread the product smoothly & went a bit light handed with it & this fixes the prob . This gives a healthy & subtle glow.
The product lasted for around 7 to 8 hours(after which my face got oily & I removed my makeup)
The smudging & transfer is very mild.
This shade goes very well with my dusky skin tone(I’m a NC 44.5 in MAC).
There are “n” number of ways you can you use a highlighter. You can mix this with your foundation for an overall dewy look or you can mix it with your everyday body moisturizer & apply it over your shoulders ,your collar bone or any where on your body to have a very nice glow. This would be perfect for night time makeup. But hey, there are no rules in makeup just go ahead use it the way you like it. I love using this as an eyeshadow. I really like to brighten my eyelids especially in the center. It blends well & I have dark eyelids yet this looks so good & does not have a grey cast.
Overall I’m happy with the product. Tried this yet? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
