Face Candy Unicorn Glow Highlighter Palette Review:

Happy hump day unicorns! I can’t stop prancing about Face Candy’s Unicorn Glow Highlighter Palette ($10 for 0.16 oz)!

I discovered this brand when purchasing Bad Habit Beauty eyeshadow palettes on the Shop Hush Site, and thought, hey, why not? It’s cheap enough and looks really pretty, and I happen to love highlighters. Immensely. So, in the cart you go!

Face Candy did not disappoint. The shades and the packaging is beautiful. And, this happens to be a dupe of ABH Aurora Glow Kit! That’s going to easily save you $30. Hooray! More gift giving. To you! Lol.


Unleash your inner unicorn and glow-up with this innovative duo-chrome palette featuring six holographic shades. Formulated with Face Candy’s Dual Pearled Technology, these highly pigmented and creamy shades give off an intensely luminous payoff. These 6 shades give you the freedom to explore and create unique custom finishes on your face, body, and eyes.

Wonder is yellow gold pearl with a turquoise shift.

Dream is a pink champagne pearl with a peach shift.

Stardust is a mother of pearl with an icy orchid shift.

Celestial is an icy blue pearl with a purple shift.

Enchanted is a rose gold pearl with a champagne orchid shift.

Fantasy is an icy lilac pearl with a blue/green shift

The shade shifting is faint indoors. To catch a better glimpse of the duo-chrome finish, natural lighting is far better.

You can wear Unicorn Glow a few ways. I’m wearing celestial on my cheeks, and I applied dream as a lip topper over my lip balm. NYC is my inspiration for my frosty glow. It’s brick outside. I tried the eyes, but I wasn’t digging it. The shades are too pastelly for my taste. The highlighters can be applied either wet or dry too if you want to manipulate the intensity.

The formula is finely milled. So, expect some kickback when picking up color with a brush. The highlighter shades are lightweight, have a buttery smooth texture, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, blendable, buildable, highly pigmented, flatters all skin-tones, and sets in a pearlized/duo-chrome finish.

Wear time is about 6 hours before it fully fades. I didn’t mind though. I use FC Unicorn Glow Palette more for night time anyway, and by the time it fades, this unicorn is too tired to notice from all the galloping she has done around town. Lol.

Face Candy’s Unicorn Glow Palette is unavailable on the ShopHush site, but is currently available on their (shophush) app. If you download the app, you will recieve free shipping on every order.

I’m getting a warm, fuzzy feeling inside that these will make great gifts for all your one horned magical friends.

Happy Haulidays!

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter Palette Review:

Happy November glamour babes! Halloween may be over, but I still got a treat in store for you! Urban Decay’s After Glow Highlighter Palette ($34 for 0.64oz) is sure to make you scream. In a good way though. Lol.

I picked this up last Friday. Ulta was having some pretty nice hot buy deals going on, and this gorgeous palette happened to be on sale for $17!
Urban Decay Afterglow highlighters are one of my favorites. I own two of them. They leave a beautiful radiant glow on the skin and last for hours. So, of course I had to purchase their palette. Four shades for $17 instead of paying $26 for one?! Do you take visa?

The Afterglow Highlighter Palette comes housed in a slim square case (mirror included) that creates a shifting rose colored effect, depending on how the light hits it. A magnetic closure keeps the palette safely shut to prevent future makeup calamities in ones bag when traveling.

Shades include:

Bliss is a pale gold w/ golden shift

Peroxide is an iridescent pink

NSFW is a peachy pink

Side Piece is a golden peach

Infused with light diffusing pigments. The finely milled formula has a lightweight feel, and a super soft, creamy texture. The shades are sheer, but have high pigmentation. I hope that makes sense. It did in my head, lol. No matter how much you build, whether it’s a little or a lot. A lovely wash of color produces on the skin, and is accompanied by a gorgeous pearlized glow. They are comfortable to wear, easy to apply, go on smoothly, blendable, buildable, and flatter all skin tones.

The palette is completely customizable or you can wear the shades individually. Apply them to your cheekbones, brow bone, Cupid’s bow, and bridge of nose. However you choose, there’s no way you can go wrong. Its highlighter, create what makes you happy!

Wear time is all day, which is why I love UD Highlighters so much. They stay on the skin for hours (as mentioned before) and the glow looks just as good as when you first applied it. Sale or no sale, treat yoself to this palette. It’s a stunner on the complexion.

Urban Decay’s Afterglow Highlighter Palette is exclusively available at Ulta and UrbanDecayCosmetics.com.

Stay beautiful! Xo.

Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette Review:

I can understand why some of you would be disappointed with the Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette ($5.99). I was in the same boat glamour babes, but after giving it a couple of tries, this palette grew on me.For those of you who absolutely love to shine and sparkle bright like a diamond. I do not recommend this palette. You will end up returning it. These trio of highlighters have subdued light reflecting pigments, which create a very, very soft glow, that gives skin a natural, radiant appearance. I don’t mind having this look at all. I have been favoring it more lately because of the Light Up Your Face Palette ($5.99). I guess you can call it Spring fever, lol. 

The finely milled, buttery smooth formula is lightweight, comfortable to wear, easy to apply, has sheer pigmentation, and is somewhat buildable, but not by much. As sheer as the shades (nude, rose,  golden beige) are, I think they’re quite beautiful and it truly shows on the complexion. I prefer to use these individually to accentuate features. I didn’t really see much natural dimension when blending all three together. It still gave off an individual effect since these are so sheer. You can however, use other highlighters (liquid, powder, or stick) on top of this one to create better depth.  The finish of these highlighters are in no way, shape or form chunky or glittery. So don’t listen to the review rumors. Obviously, they don’t know highlighters. Yep, I went there. Big whoop, you wanna fight about it? (Family Guy humor) lol.

I was actually impressed by the color payoff. Usually highlighters this faint (from my experience) don’t stick around for long, they fade quickly. It’s as if I never put on highlighter. Not this one though. I got six hours of gorgeous glow and tons of compliments. Thanks boys and girls! It’s all thanks to Essence. 

You can try on The Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette for size at Ulta Beauty or select Target stores.

Stay beautiful! Xo
