So I first came across this brand on instagram and I immediately got intrigued because of a video of the highlight shade “Solstice” (Click here to see it). It looked really pretty so I decided to purchase it along with another highlight shade “Camilla”
Moon Glow Cosmetics currently offers six different pressed highlighter shades each available for $6.99. On the Etsy shop, under the description of each of the highlight shades there it states which skin types that specific highlighter is best for (It is very accurate so take this into account).
Alright now let’s get down to how well they perform.
If you swatch these with your finger, you’ll notice how soft and pigmented these are. I was surprised by how gorgeously they applied on.
Like I mentioned before, take into account the recommendation for skin types. For instance, Camilla (On the Right) is recommended for fair to medium-light skin tone, but I still tried it on a darker skin tone (Tan skin tone shown above in natural lighting with one swipe of each highlight shade).
While it still looked gorgeous, it looked more powdery and more like a pretty sparkly eyeshadow than highlight (Same swatches with flash).
Packaging wise they don’t come in a compact so you will have to put them in a magnetic palette to keep them in tact (There is also the option of getting these sent in a cute little box).
Overall I didn’t find a downfall with these. I personally really liked these and can see myself hitting pan very soon.
