A Very Subtle Highlighting Powder


Strobing is super "in" since last year!  But as much as we love the "strobing effect" on photos, it looks really unnatural (and to some...oily) in person!  So the Queen of Natural-looking makeup (Yes, I hailed myself that! #walangkokontra) is on the lookout for the most natural highlighting product.  And I may have found one!

Catrice Cosmetics Limited Edition Strobing Duo Highlighter 
Php499.00

The shade says C01 Strobing Surpreme but I am reading it as Strobing SUPREME.  Could be a spelling mistake but it doesn't matter to me.

This is a LIMITED Edition product so if you can still find them at SM Beauty Stores, grab them before it's too late!

According to Catrice, this is a light-reflecting shimmer powder that has perfectly aligned shades in a pan for flattering highlights on both face and neckline.  I personally would like to add this as a body highlighting powder too?  (Think about arms and legs for special occasion)

Swatch
If you look at the pan closely, you see 3 different shades from lightest to a bit "peach".  I can never tell with naked eye the shade difference even if I swatch them "per layer" but I like using them all together!

As for application, I prefer to use a small face brush or blush brush and apply on the highest point of my cheeks!

Before and After
As you can see, this is the most subtle highlighting powder I've used and it photographs beautifully!  The best part is that, it looks as subtle and as beautiful in person!

This definitely goes to my daily makeup basket because I am starting to use this faithfully!
