Phoenix

Melt Cosmetics Phoenix Digital Dust Highlight ($39.00 for zero.28 oz.) is a deep copper with heat, reddish-brown undertones and a pure sheen. It had opaque pigmentation however the firmer texture meant it was straightforward to select up much less product for extra buildable protection if that was most well-liked. The cheek product stayed on properly for eight and a half hours earlier than fading barely. It had a a lot much less intense end in comparison with most highlighters available on the market, particularly with this extra powder-gel hybrid components.

The texture was firmer, denser however very easy with none powderiness, but it utilized evenly and blended out with little effort. The key takeaway is that with this kind of components, a reasonably dense brush will work greatest to select up product; it’s extra aptly described as agency as stiff, however extra feathery brushes (like a fan brush) might choose up product poorly.

The model does not have an incredible description of the highlighter components typically, simply descriptions of every shade. The lightest shade–Stargazer–is described as “buildable” however the different two are silent with respect to pigmentation, and the lightest shade was fairly pigmented. Since there was no common description, I am holding the components to the common powder highlighter’s claims–pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable, besides Stargazer, which I’d anticipate to have “buildable” pigmentation. The components has a denser, firmer texture, however it by no means felt stiff nor was it tough to mix out on the pores and skin. The protection was semi-opaque and buildable with a high-shine to metallic end. All three lasted eight hours on me.
