Say HOLLLA to the new Crystalline Glow Highlighter Sticks from Bareminerals. These little beauties have just launched in-store and I was super excited to get them on my face because as-we-know-I-love-a-glow and there’s something about a cream formula that I find so appealing when it comes to highlighters; I think because it imparts a sheen alongside the highlight and it will be forever be my go-to formula for perfect glossy skin.
Alongside the highlighter sticks, Bareminerals have also launched a stunning Crystalline Glow Bronzer & Highlighter palette which is a great multi-use face palette. If you find a powder easier to apply and work with then definitely check this stunner out.
I love the ease and simplicity of a cream stick formulation as it can be applies softly and subtly or really built up and layered with powder to get all-out-bedazzling-blinding-GLOW. Makeup artists will pretty much always layer up different formulas to get the skin looking really dewy and radiant. The Crystalline sticks are infused with shea butter for a creamy and natural finish and a ‘mineral moonbeam essence’ which is a stunning blend of moonstone, mother of pearl, amethyst and sapphire for a wonderful multi-faceted crystal-like glow. These shades all have a 2-tone finish so the colour will change underneath the light.
There are 3 duochrome shades available:
Iridescent Quartz = Turns from a rose > yellow gold
Shimmering Crystal = Turns from champagne gold > rosy pink
Prismatic Pearl = Turns from opalescent white > shocking violet
I have the Iridescent Quartz & Shimmering Crystal which are swatched below ; I’m currently favouring the pinkier tones of the Shimmering Crystal and this is also super pretty slicked across the lids for a glossy (but not overly glossy) lid. It also looks beautiful on the collarbones and shoulders to show off that ever-increasing tan.
