We all want to have that glowing skin from within, don't we? So, when I saw this Josie Maran Argan Enlightement Illuminizing Veil ($36.00CAD) at Sephora, I immediately swatch it on my hand and I fell in love with it, there is something about the lighting at Sephora that makes make-up swatches look more special. Of course, it went home with me that day and now's the time for a review! Was my initial reaction still the same after a month of using this Josie Maran highlighter?
First of all, I really love the pretty rose gold packaging, it makes the product looks luxurious. Once you open it, you'll find a little note that is on the mirror inside the compact that says: “Shine the light your were born to shine”. It's such a cute thoughtful touch. :) Unlike MAC's soft and gentle, this highlighter is very subtle. So, if you're looking for a natural soft highlighter, this one is probably just right up your alley.
As you can see from the swatch above, this highlighter powder translates as a beige/champagne color on my skin ( light medium NC 25-30). This product contains argan oil which I think is the reason why the texture of the powder is quite creamy and smooth. If you have dry skin, you'll probably like this because it does not accentuate dry spot. It contains pure shimmer (no glitters, I swear!) that looks so subtle when worn on the face specifically on the cheekbones. You can actually use this as an overall powder as long as you use it with a light application and a light brush. Unfortunately, this product does not last a long time, I can't really see any difference on my skin after 5 hours. Albeit, it's something that does not really bother me because I don't mind retouching.
Overall, it's quite a lovely product that you can add into your make-up collection. In my opinion, it's perfect to use as a daytime everyday highlighter! Do you love using highlighters? What are your favourites?
