Makeup Forever Pro Light Fusion Highlighter (Review)

This highlighter is a mini-miracle. Admittedly, at nearly $40 the price tag is hefty. $40 can buy you a lot in the highlighter world (basically a lifetime supply of e.l.f. baked highlights, or an Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit). And while I wouldn’t say I […]

Makeup Geek Highlighter Review & Swatches

Highlighters are my favorite part of any makeup look, and I actually feel a little bit naked if I forget to wear a highlighter. I don’t know how I ever lived without highlight! I think that the super-glowy cheekbones will be something my children see in photos and say “what were you thinking?” But to be honest, I don’t really care. I love highlight.

Makeup Geek Highlighter

Makeup Geek eyeshadows have practically taken over the internet. The eyeshadows come in a huge range of colors and sell at $6 per shadow. You have to put them in your own Z-Palette (so it isn’t that much of a bargain) but they’re moderately priced and high quality. I ordered my first shadows a couple months ago, but what really thrills me is the highlighter.

I have the Makeup Geek Highlighter in “Glitz,” which appealed to me the most out of the color range. It is a frosty pink, which is one of my favorite shades of my favorite color. You can apply a little for a soft glow, or layer it for a more intense glow. This particular highlight doesn’t layer very well over a cream highlight, but it is so stellar on its own you don’t really need a base.

The highlighter is $20 plus shipping, but the shipping didn’t cost me much. For the pan size, the product quality, and even the packaging quality, I think this is a great price. The highlighter is smooth and buttery, shimmery and luminescent but not chunky or glittery.
