Happy September glamour babes! Summer may have left us, but that doesn’t mean we have to close up shop and pack away the highlighters. Gerard Cosmetics Star Powder ($36 for 0.42 oz) is one of those highlighters that shall be a fall favorite of mine. The glow is unbeleafable! Lol. Fall humor. I crack myself up sometimes.
Inspired by some of the world’s most celebrated Hollywood icons, this Star Powder will make you feel your prettiest. Out of the seven shades, I picked Lucy and Brigitte.The shades seemed a little more unique to me than the others (Audrey, Dorothy, Marilyn, Grace, and Sophia).
Lucy- doesn’t have any splaining to do with this warm rosy highlight. A hint of golden shimmer was added to give America’s Sweetheart dimension.
Brigitte- ooh la la. Oui, Sil vous plait! For this warm champagne highlight with a beautiful pearlescent peach undertone. C’est magnifique!
Infused with Jojoba oil, the formulation of the powders are smooth and buttery. They are finely milled, highly pigmented, comfortable to wear, blendable, buildable, apply evenly, flatter all skin tones, and have a satin pearlized finish.
The glow is not blinding. It gives off a more radiant and incandescent look to skin. I love it. You can easily manipulate the powders too if you want to create a subtle glowing appearance. I usually use a less denser brush for highly pigmented highlighters. The brush picks up just enough color to do so.
The color payoff is excellent. Lucy and Brigitte performed gorgeously for 9 hours with no fading whatsoever.
And the Oscar goes to…….drum roll please…..Gerard Cosmetics Star Powders!
Stay beautiful! Xo.
