If you've been a follower of my blog for a while now then you'll know of my huge obsession with highlighter. It all started with the MAC soft and gentle MSF and then slowly but surely my heart got stolen by the Sleek Solstice Palette. Since then I have accumulated over 20 highlighters, some in cream form and others in powder form. I am showing absolutely zero signs of finishing my collection either. I still have a few on my wishlist at this point. The latest addition to my highlighting stash is the Jouer Powder Highlighter in Rose Quartz.
On my birthday I ended up on the Cult Beauty site with a cheeky birthday discount code and a few products suddenly 'slipped' into the basket and made their way to the checkout, one of which was the Rose Quartz Highlighter. At first I was unsure on what shade to go for as they have three shades to choose from, Rose Quartz, Topaz and Citrine. Topaz looked a bit too dark for me judging by swatches as I am so fair so it was between Citrine and Rose Quartz. Both shades are absolutely stunning, at one point I was tempted to get both but instead I decided to do the sensible thing(which is unheard of for a makeup junkie like me) and decided to go for just the one, Rose Quartz. I am happy to say I have absolutely no regrets in purchasing it either.
Rose Quartz is unlike any other highlighter I have, a pinky-champagne. It adds a certain luminosity to the skin, natural but ever so beautiful. When you first apply it, it can be seen as a little subtle but if you like to have a strong glow going on then you can easily build it up to the intensity that you like. The formula is what completely blew me away though. It has somewhat of a soft, creamy, velvety texture so you have to be super careful. When I first swatched it my nail made an indentation as the powder is so fine. It blends in so seamlessly into the skin too which is what I love. With some highlighters I've tried in the past they tend to sit on the skin and leave that horrific stripe on the face which is just a complete no no so I'm glad to see it doesn't do that.
The packaging is ever so beautiful too. A sleek, chic and luxurious gold square compact with a 'click' closure which makes it nice and compact. I can't say it's exactly travel friendly though. I would be too scared to take it on holiday with me in fear that it will smash into smithereens but that's just because I feel the powder itself is just too vulnerable as the texture is just so soft.
Overall I absolutely love the Jouer Powder Highlighter in Rose Quartz. It's a beautiful shade and the formula is just dreamy. I will definitely be picking up Citrine next when I can. I am completely obsessed. You can purchase it here from Cult Beauty for £19 but unfortunately it seems to be out of stock but you can join the waitlist so you can find out when it's back.
Have you tried any of the Jouer Powder Highlighters?
