Catrice Icy Glaze 3D Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Icy Glaze

Catrice Icy Glaze 3D Glow Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright platinum–a cross between silver and pale gold, though leaning ever-so-slightly more silver to my eye. It had nearly opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, creamy texture that felt rich and luxurious to the touch. The highlighter was easy to diffuse and spread for sheerer coverage or brought to full coverage with less than a half of a layer more on top of the first layer. It had an intense, metallic finish that didn’t accentuate my skin’s natural texture. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to show signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.1 oz. – $69.90 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “strong pigmentation” with a “creamy-soft powder texture” and designed without “any white pigments” to work on “especially” on “medium to dark skin tones.” The most remarkable aspect about the formula was that “creamy-soft” texture–it was incredibly finely-milled, cream-like, and looked like the baked-gelee kind of formula but was much softer, more loosely-pressed without being powdery or dry. All three shades had good pigmentation, a superb texture, and applied beautifully to my skin. They yielded a more metallic, high-shine finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. They lasted around eight to nine hours on me before fading noticeably.
