Review: Kide Cosmetics Y Gold Highlighter

While I usually do extensive research before finally deciding to purchase a product, I spotted the Y Gold Highlighter by Kide Cosmetics on sale at The Detox Market and I was sold! Despite how eye-catching the promotional photographs of this highlighter are, I had trouble finding any reviews on my favorite beauty blogs. Encased in modern wooden packaging, this gorgeous mineral highlighter does not disappoint! The retail price is quite steep at $85 for 0.28 ounces (8 grams) of product. However, if you can find it on sale or would like to treat yourself or someone else, this highlighter will definitely amp up your natural, healthy glow.

Finish

The texture of this highlighter is exactly what I look for in mineral products. It is nicely balanced between being powdery and silky, but never comes off as dusty or chalky. With gold metallic veining streaked throughout a glimmering beige, this powder has just the right amount of shimmer. While this highlighter imparts a sophisticated, luminous glow that gives life to my pale complexion, it will also look stunning on darker skin tones.

Application

I use a small fluffy brush to blend this highlighter onto the tops of my cheekbones. I also go back in with a small eyeshadow brush to pop this underneath the arches of my eyebrows and to the inner corners of my eyes. If you are really looking for an allover glow, you can use a big fluffy brush and a delicate hand to set your entire face with this beautiful powder.

Wrap-Up

This highlighter is gorgeous! The gold-toned shimmer provides warmth to the skin and the addition of diamond powder naturally illuminates for a lit-from-within radiance. The satiny texture is luxurious and blends easily onto the skin. Although the packaging is a little clunky for travel, it looks beautiful and protects the product very well. This highlighter has already made frequent appearances in my daily routine and I know that it will be a staple in the spring and summer. If you are in the market for a cooler-toned glimmer, Kide also offers a silver version of this highlighter (here).
