Highlight cheeks with a natural looking flush of warm shimmer, whatever your skin tone. The creamy, lightweight texture glides onto skin for a soft finish with a delicious honey fragrance. Natural, shimmery highlighter. Easy to apply and blend and has creamy lightweight texture.
I lover blushes as they add a nice flush to the cheeks; and I lover highlighters too, they add a nice glow to your face. Blushes and highlighters work really well together and nothing can beat the idea of mixing these two products- blush cum highlighter! The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze highlighting Dome in shade 02-Pink is a blush highlighter which I bought recently. These are 2 other shades in brown and champagne colour, and these 3 together complete the contour look. Here is a review on The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome- 02 Pink:
MY TAKE ON THE BODY SHOP HONEY BRONZE HIGHLIGHTING DOME- 02 PINK
Packaging: The highlighting dome comes in a cute little tub with convex blush in it forming a dome like shape; hence the name. The blush is easy to apply due to the tub shape. Lid fits perfectly and does not come off on its own, making the product travel friendly.
Texture: The product is very creamy and glides on smoothly. You need to blend the product with fingertips for an even distribution.
Shade: The shade 02-pink is a pure Barbie pink colour which won’t really show up on medium skin tones once blended. The colour is not well pigmented but the highlighting property is really good.
Fragrance: The highlighting dome smells sweet like honey but it doesn’t last long and vanishes after few minutes of application.
How I use and staying power: After using my foundation and compact powder, I swiped this dome on my cheekbones one time. There was no visible colour, just little shine so I did it 2-3 times for a dark pink colour. The colour did not come out as dark but I could see it and it looked natural since it wasn’t too pigmented. The highlight looked great though, I need not use a highlighter when I am using this. I went out and after 2 hours there was no colour on my cheeks! Only subtle shine. The product does have some visible shimmer to it and it can be clearly seen once the colour fades away. It did not look very tacky though since the shimmer is fine.
The product is very creamy and might not suit very oily skinned girls. Dry skinned girls can use this without any second thought. The only problem I have with this blush cum highlighter is that, dude-where is the colour? it does show up on the hands, and initially on the cheeks as well for an hour or so, but then it fades away. I think girls with very fair skin can use this as the colour might show up on their skin tone.
