Faces has launched a brand new illuminating powder and I am so happy with this launch. I love highlighting and this is my first drugstore highlighter.

Claims : Adds a touch of glamour to makeup, A versatile, light-weight highlighter for luminous looking skin, Ultra-fine shimmer that instantly leaves skin with iridescent shine that lasts long, Blends effortlessly on the skin and Paraben free.

Usage & Application : Sweep across the face or apply on cheekbones, browbones or anywhere you want to highlight and illuminate. Ideal for strobing too.

Packaging : The product comes in a sturdy, clear plastic pan. The pan comes in a black cardboard box which has all the details mentioned about the product; ingredients list, shelf life, price etc. The pan contains 9 grams of product which is very impressive for the price paid. It is sleek and travel friendly.

Shade :  It is a very warm champagne peach shade; when I first looked at it, I thought it was a drugstore version of Becca’s champagne pop. But when I swatched both of them next to each other, they turned out to be different :(

Texture : When I first saw the product on the Faces counter, I asked the SA to swatch it on my arm and she also blended the product. It gave a beautiful natural glow from within. The powder is very finely milled and does not feel chunky. The application of the product is very smooth and does not feel patchy.

Pigmentation : For girls who love a subtle glow, this can be your best friend. I would not say that the pigmentation is incredible but it is also not poor. It has decent pigmentation and can be layered on according to how much you want to highlight.
