SO BASICALLY ONE THING I GOTTA LET Y’ALL KNOW IS THAT I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BRAND! CIATÉ LONDON CARRIES SOME GREAT PRODUCTS (THEIR LIMITED EDITION OLIVIA PALERMO COLLECTION, CHLOE MORELLO PRETTY FUN FEARLESS PALETTE) AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT THEY’RE CRUELTY/PARABEN-FREE & THAT THEY ALSO MAKE THEIR PRODUCTS IN ITALY.

IMO, A LOT OF PRODUCTS THAT ARE MADE IN ITALY HAVE THE BEST OF QUALITY. NO SHADE TOWARDS OTHER BRANDS THAT CREATE THEIR PRODUCTS ELSE-WHERE BECAUSE I OWN A TON OF MAKEUP THAT ISN’T EVEN MADE IN ITALY, BUT I JUST PERSONALLY LOVE KNOWING THAT THESE PRODUCTS WERE MADE THERE BECAUSE I DO SEE A DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY.

CIATÉ LONDON IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE BRANDS AND I RECOMMEND YOU ALL TO TRY THEM OUT- ESPECIALLY THIS PRODUCT!

WHEN THIS PRODUCT DROPPED ON THE SEPHORA WEBSITE I GRABBED IT INSTANTLY! I KNEW THAT THIS HIGHLIGHT WOULD BE GORGEOUS AND I WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY! IT GIVES A INTENSE HIGH/WET LOOKING SHINE TO THE FACE AND TRULY GIVES ME THAT GLOWY GODDESS TYPE LOOK. I MUST SAY THAT THERE ARE MICRO-FINE SHIMMERS IN THIS BUT I DON’T MIND IT AT ALL SINCE I LOVE ME SOME HIGHLIGHT. IF YOU HAVE TEXTURE THOUGH OR DON’T LIKE VERY INTENSE HIGHLIGHTERS- THIS MAY NOT BE FOR YOU. LUCKILY- IT DEFINITELY IS FOR ME!

I LIKE TO APPLY THIS WITH MY REAL TECHNIQUES SETTING BRUSH- IT GIVES A MORE EVEN APPLICATION TO THE FACE AND REALLY SPREADS THE PRODUCT NICELY. I LOVE PUTTING THIS ON THE HIGH POINTS OF MY FACE AND ESPECIALLY ON MY CUPIDS BOW FOR A BEAUTIFUL HIGHLIGHT THAT ACCENTUATES MY LIPS. THIS TECHNIQUE REALLY HELPS MY LIPS LOOK A BIT BIGGER AND JUST PULLS MY MAKEUP LOOK TOGETHER IN MY OPINION!

THERE ARE TWO COLOURS TO THIS HIGHLIGHTER BTW- I GRABBED THE STARBURST SHADE SINCE I WANTED A MORE CHAMPAGNE/GOLD HIGHLIGHT. THEY ALSO HAVE THE SHADE MOONDUST WHICH IS A MORE PINK SHADE WHICH I THINK WOULD LOOK GREAT ON LIGHT-MEDIUM SKIN-TONES. I’M THINKING I MAY PICK UP THE OTHER ONE AS WELL!

 

QUICK NOTES:

PRICE- C$ 38.00 + TAX

COST PER GRAM- C$ 7.60 / g  (DOES NOT INC. TAX!)

PACKAGING- VERY CUTE AND STURDY! HARD PLASTIC YET VERY DURABLE.THE PRODUCT INSIDE HAS A CUTE STAR DESIGN EMBEDDED INTO IT. OVERALL, I DON’T EXPECT THE PRODUCT TO BREAK IF I TRAVEL WHICH IS A PLUS!

SMELL?- ABSOLUTELY NOT; NO FRAGRANCE ADDED WHICH IS GOOD FOR PEOPLE WHO MAY HAVE AN IRRITATION TO IT

HOW MANY GRAMS OF PRODUCT?- SIZE 0.17 oz / 5 g 

CONSISTENCY- QUITE FINELY MILLED; DOES HAVE SHIMMERS BUT IS NOT GRITTY AT ALL

PIGMENTATION- CAN GO LIGHT-HANDED WITH IT TO GIVE AN ETHEREAL LOOK OR A VERY INTENSE LOOK IF YOU LAYER A BIT!
