Highlighter is such a huge thing to me. If I leave the house without my highlight on, I feel naked. I need that little extra glow on my face to make me feel my best. I've been using the MAC Soft & Gentle Highlighter for quite a while... I mean, I've hit pan and I'm doing that thing when you put your brush around the edge to try and get as much product on there as physically possible.
Anyway, even though I've been using this highlight for a while, I haven't been 100% satisfied. It isn't strong enough. At first I thought it was my brush.. but after talking to my friend who has the EXACT same problem I started thinking it must be my beloved Soft & Gentle.
I attended the Harvey Nichols Intelligent Beauty event for work last week (I know, living my best life). It was full of the best beauty brands. From Pixi to Nars the beauty line–up was not a disappointment. With my highlight disappointment in mind, I knew I was open to a new highlighter if the right one came along.
Along came Fenty Beauty. Whilst watching one of the beauty talks on the night, Fenty Beauty came on stage to give us a Contouring Masterclass. And, of course with any contour comes a highlight. Out comes the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in shade Metal Moon.
This highlight is INCREDIBLE! Not only is the colour beautiful but the impact of the highlight is amazing. It's so powerful and it makes such a huge difference. It stands out and that's exactly what I look for in a highlighter.
After the talk I was still thinking it over but, it wasn't until one of the girls from Fenty came over to me whilst I was still at the event to talk to me about the product and asked if I'd like to try it on myself to see what I think of it.
All that's left to say is that I loved it. It instantly brightened up my face and what I really love about the Killawatt Freestyle is that less is so much more. Just the smallest amount on my cheekbones makes a huge difference to my face. It brightens it up and looks so flattering.
I'm in love. The shade duo that I opted to go for was the Lightning Dust sheen with Fire Crystal shimmer. I've been wearing it for just over a week now and everyday I've fallen more in love with it.
It's lasts all day, which means when I finish work my highlight is still popping and I'm ready for whatever the rest of the day will bring me. Especially as the evening are FINALLY starting to get lighter now! Spring, I'm ready for you!
