Review of Fresh Satin Luster by clarabeau
This palette of highlighters is so lovely. Highlighters are probably my favorite makeup product category, they are essential to pulling your look together and giving you that look to your skin that is dewy and fresh and young. They're the difference between looking pretty and looking gorgeous. These in particular are top notch, and give that ethereal beauty look that we all appreciate. Think Arwen's complexion in Lord of the Rings, for instance.
The shimmer in these is so fine, no glitter flecks (which are a dead giveaway) and meld with the skin seamlessly. The ingredients are moisturizing and have never broken me out. I just apply a dab wherever I would like to highlight, usually on my cheekbones and cupid's bow, and the inner corner of my eyes. I do this everyday, even if I skip most of the rest of my routine. I can put them on before foundation, so that a diffused glow is visible underneath my makeup and just looks like healthy, glowy skin, or over my makeup for a shimmery finish. The three colors in the palette do come up very similar on even my extremely fair skin, so I can almost use them interchangeably. But I don't mind! Although I often use the peach colored one over peachy blush, and the rose-colored one over pinker blush, and they seem to provide a color boost that way.
So pretty and never fails me. Whenever people ask me what I did with my makeup and how I get my skin to look so pretty (and it's far from perfect, I need some help from makeup) I always answer with this, it seems to be the magic bullet for me. And I have had these for years, using them pretty much every day, and I've barely made a dent in the palette!
