As beauty lovers, we go through phases. Phases with favourite brands, phases with foundation coverage and phases with favourite colours.
Associating with the latter, I’m currently all in with gold highlighter. I used to have a tough time finding a gold that would work with my skin tone, but I’ve found a few brands that make shades that agree with my paleness.
Enter the Tarte Amazonian Clay Highlighter in Exposed Highlight. It comes in a simple plastic, mirrored compact, coloured to correspond with the shade of the product inside.
It contains 5.6 g of product, compared to a BECCA pressed highlighter, which contains 8 g of product.
I’ve been wearing this shade every day for the past week…sooooo spoiler alert…I’m feeling it.
Compared to Wet n Wild’s Golden Flower Crown and BECCA’s Champagne Pop, Exposed Highlight isn’t as deep and caramel-y. Formula-wise it’s a bit sheerer than the other two shades, so I applied a second layer to achieve a more intense highlight. It also contains a small amount of glitter, but a little sparkle never hurt anyone, right?
Clearly, I need to expand my gold highlighter collection – any brand/shade suggestions?
