One thing I don’t use often enough are Korean makeup products. I actually have a whole IKEA malm drawer FULL of K Beauty products that I NEED to share with you guys because I love everything from the packaging to actual price and quality. Speaking of packaging, Peripera’s Heart Glow Stick*($16.00 USD) is a prime example of Korean packaging porn. This cream highlighter stick is for the highlighter newbie/girl on the go and comes in the shades: Pink Beam and Gold Aura.
Most Korean beauty products tend to look very girly and cartoony. Maybe it’s in my blood, but I totally don’t mind. It doesn’t deter me from thinking a product is high quality at all! Look at the little hearts all over the packaging!
Twist-up style highlighter stick.
The colour itself is yellow gold that is quite intense in terms of shimmer!
Final Verdict: Application was relatively creamy and workable. Despite how intense the shimmer was, it can easily be sheered out with fingers. What I liked about the highlighter formulation was that it wasn’t TOO creamy. The formula feels like those long-wearing eyeshadow sticks that have just enough creaminess to glide and blend, but a dryness that reassures me it won’t go sliding off my face anytime soon. The intense shimmer might not be for everyone, but that’s what highlighting is all about right?
Both shades of highlighter stick can be purchased from Memebox, but only to US addresses :-(
Now, who’s watching the Superbowl tomorrow?!
