Disclaimer: I bought this.
Running into Ulta for one thing turned out to be a bad idea for my poor wallet when I happened upon the new post-Christmas NYX Cosmetics displays a couple weeks ago.
I love highlighting, so I picked up a couple of the new Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders – there were five in the display. I chose Snow Rose and Synthetica.
Check these beauties out:
Left is Snow Rose and right is Synthetica. They have a strong shift, and seem well-pigmented for a highlighter.
Here’s how I wore Snow Rose:
You can see it on my forehead, along the bridge of my nose, and on top of my cheeks.
Here’s how I wore Synthetica:
You can see the peachy-gold in the same places as Snow Rose – my nose, forehead and cheeks.
Overall, these highlighters lasted all day, applied and blended beautifully. They were a good buy as I use highlighters everyday in my makeup routine.
I didn’t include this third shade, Lavender Steel, in my review technically, but I did pick it up recently and thought I’d include the photo of me wearing it, because you can see the strong shift in it, too!
These highlighters are $8. You can purchase them through the NYX site, or pick them up in Ulta or on Ulta’s website if there aren’t any left on the shelves!
I was pleased! What do you think of these? Did you pick any up yet? Plan to? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
