Highlighter has been all the rage for the last couple of years now and finding a good budget-friendly highlighter is usually a mission on its own.
I found this cute Catrice highlighter in my local drugstore and tested it out.
Let’s see if it is affordable AND glowy like the stars.
What Catrice says about the highlighter:
“Baked highlighting powder infused with minerals and light-reflecting pearls for a luminous look. Sheer and buildable coverage – for a subtle glow all over or illuminated accents on cheeks, temples or décolleté.”
The packaging of the highlighter is very simple, but it’s the inside that counts right? It’s a baked highlighter and I love the overall look of a baked highlighter, it looks so pretty!
The letters of drugstore packaging tends to fade after a while and this one is no different. However, it does not bother me!
As far as I’m aware, they’ve only come out with one colour: 010 Light Infusion.
The colour of the highlighter might look neutral when you first look at it, but it does have a cool undertone and a subtle light-pink colour. One thing I immediately noticed, were the glitter particles in the highlighter and this kind off threw me off and even made me afraid to try it. Nobody wants to look like a disco ball, haha. The glitter is noticeable in the packaging and also on the face, but it’s not like you’re a walking head that sparkles. The formula is indeed buildable. You can go from a subtle glow to a BOOM glow in your face. Another thing I noticed, is that the highlighter is a bit dry, making it quite powdery.
So be careful while applying it!
