I am all about highlighting my cheekbones. Highlighters might actually be my favorite makeup product. They are so pretty and can give the face such a beautiful glow! My recent hightlighter obsession is the Wet n Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in the shade “Rose Champagne Glow.” When this first came out I didn’t think twice about it. I really had no interest in it. Then randomly one day I saw it in the store and was immediately drawn in. And the rest, they say, is history.
This product is part of Fergie’s Wet n Wild Centerstage Collection at Walgreen’s stores. There are three different shades of these shimmer palettes and they retail for $5.99 for 0.4 oz./11.3 g. Since this is a highlighting product, you won’t use very much product during each use so this will last a really long time.
These shimmer palettes are actually baked products that can be worn wet or dry. I’ve only ever tried it dry because wetting my brush is just too much of a hassle to do everyday.
In the pan this is an absolutely gorgeous product. It has a champagne base with pink and purple toned veining running through it. Just looking at it makes me happy!
This is a concentrated swatch to be able to really show you the color of it. It is a more champagne highlight with some warm, slightly rosy tones to it. I think it would look absolutely amazing on anyone. I find this to be an extremely wearable highlighter because when you blend it onto your cheekbones it’s rather subtle and gives a really nice, natural glow to your face. It adds the perfect amount of dimension back to your face if you use products that make your face look a little flat or too matte. This is my go-to everyday highlighter for how natural it looks.
L-to-R: The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, Fergie, Hard Candy “Honeymoon” Baked Blush
I figured I’d throw in a little side-by-side comparison to the other two highlighters I own. This highlighter is the perfect middle ground color for the two I already own. The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer (retails for $24 for 0.3 oz./8.5 g) is a straight up champagne color. It is not subtle at all and gives a noticeable highlight to the cheeks. This is one of my favorite makeup products of all time. The Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush in “Honeymoon” (retails for $7 for 0.28 oz/8 g) is actually marketed as a blush but blended out it’s much more of a highlighter. It is a cool toned pink color that gives a really nice and rather unique luminosity to the cheeks.
Out of the three, I would actually recommend the Fergie highlighter because it is the cheapest, you get the most product, and I think of the three colors, it would work on the most people. It’s not too subtle but it’s not super in your face either. Overall, this is an absolutely amazing highlighter that will add that little extra something to any makeup look!
