I picked this highlighter up while I was at Target getting some essence lip liners, which I absolutely love love love!! (a story for another day) when I saw this guy calling out to me. Now usually I’m not that into cream highlighters, but as we are moving into winter and my skin is looking a little dry and dreary I thought Id give it a try.

This product is very creamy when you first apply it, and sheers out to a beautiful champagne shade and then dries down like a powder which is something that I have never used before. And I really like it! I find that its so easy to use either under or over foundation and looks so naturally pretty.

The product looks quite shimmery, but using a small amount and working it into your skin makes a really big difference.

I picked this up for around $4-$6 AUD I can’t remember exactly, but I know it wasn’t expensive at all.

I’m really liking this product, and for the price I can’t really fault it.

Let me start by saying I love these lip glosses, they are so silky smooth on the lips. I wouldn’t say they were very matte though, but they also definitely aren’t a gloss which is tricky. In my opinion the best way to describe the finish is more like satin.

The above swatches have been applied directly from the tube with no lip liner.

The glosses are a little slippery on the lips, not to be confused with the Australis Velour Lips which set like concrete. These don’t really set at all, which I personally quite like as a change from the usual matte lip glosses that are on the market, but if you’re looking for a product that won’t budge then these probably won’t be for you.

I picked my glosses up at Priceline and can’t find them on the site for the life of me, but I don’t think they were any more than $6 AUD if that. My local store had 3 colours but was out of stock of the other shade.

Like I said, I really like these glosses and think they’re perfect as a ‘throw on and go’ lip product, easy to apply and smell great!
