ColourPop Lite Stix “Star Brite” – Review, Swatches

I’m a big lover of highlighter. If it sparkles, shimmers or shines I’m all about it.

But I’m pretty particular with what formula of highlighter I like to use. My preference is powder highlighter, followed by liquid highlighter, with stick highlighters being last on my list. In my experience, I have found stick highlighters to be hard to blend and difficult to use with foundation or concealer underneath. So although I rarely use stick highlighters, my friend gave me this highlighter stick, so I wanted to give it a shot.

The ColourPop Lite Stix in Star Brite comes in a retractable cantaloupe tube. It contains 9.25 g of product.

I applied this highlighter straight to the tops of my cheeks, right out of the tube, and blended it out with my fingers.

In the arm swatches below you can see how the ColourPop highlighter is this neat metallic taupe shade. However, when I blended the product out on my face, the metallic taupe was nowhere to be found. What was left behind was a fine micro glitter. Now, don’t get me wrong, some people like glitter in their highlighter, but it’s just not my cup of tea. I think I would have really enjoyed this highlighter is the shade that appeared in my arm swatch actually translated to my face.

I will say that this highlighter blended the most easily out of any stick highlighter I’ve tried. It didn’t take any extra elbow grease, just some tapping and blending motions with my finger, and it didn’t mess with the concealer underneath. That being said, because this product was basically dispersed glitter and not that glowy sheen I look for in a highlight, I’m going to pass it onto a friend who will get good use out of it and give it a forever home.
