We all need have foundations,blushes,eyeshadows to get the perfect makeup look but one thing that I like is highlighting.Other than cheek highlighting,our neck and décolleté area as well.I was out on search for a good shimmery highlighting and pounced on this Just Gold highlighter is available in 2 shades-one is neutral and the other is slightly peach toned.I bought the peach toned!!
PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with transparent round body like Inglot dusting finishing powder.A plastic flap is provided to keep the powder intact and away from getting messy.
SHADE:The shade is a light peach with golden and silver multi reflects.The shimmer is slightly chunky as compared to highlighter shimmer but it looks great when applied on neck zone or back.
MY VIEWS:The powder is finely milled and blends easily.I opted for this peach shade for a little brightening effect as the neutral one simply dissolved into my skin color.Thr formula is soft.The shimmer present is slightly chunky but adds good highlighting effect to the neck.It is a great product to be used when you are going out on parties,for brides.I tried using this as an eyeshadow(as a neutral shade for highlighting the over all eye) and it worked really well.A dust of this all over the eyes and winged liner can also complete the look.
The staying power is average for about 4 hours but a primer or base underneath will definitely help.Also,I tried using this wet as an eyeshadow and it looked great.It did not break me out or clog the pores.
RECOMMENDATION:A great budget product which can be used in many ways.
I loved my Bobbi Brown shimmer brick in bronze because of its versatility and the shades that it offers.I can use it as a blusher,highlighter,eyeshadow.
Once i was a Cosmetic shop and chanced to see this gorgeous beauty-Just Gold multi shimmer powder.The lady there told me that it can be used in many ways-just the way Bobbi brown shimmer brick can be used and I could not resist buying it for the fact that I love such products and this one is so affordable.
PACKAGING: The packaging is simple and somewhat dull.A square body with a transparent lid.It is easy to locate and travel friendly but i think it might break if fallen!!!The shade number is provided at the back.It had two other varients-one was pink tones and one was somewhat mauve toned.
up:just gold,down: bobbi brown
SHADE: There are 5 shades in this.
- The lightest one is champagne gold that is great for highlighting.
- a shimmery mauve pink.
- a copper pink.
- peach pink.
- shimmery pink-brown.
when swirled together
The same shades are present in the Shimmer brick as well.
OVERALL PERFORMANCE: I must admit,I use this over Bobbi Brown one.The texture is soft and fallout is minimal.
The shades are decently pigmented and when swiped together,a pink brown shade is formed which looks great.
I have used them separately as eyeshadow also and they are easy to use.On a base,they look much better and the shimmer is more settled.
Staying power is around 5-6 hours which is great.It did not clog my pores neither irritate on skin.
