Though highlighting isn't going away any time soon, what I love about the Korean style of highlighting is that the product and manner in which it is applied is still heavily focused on skin. The glow is merely enhancing the skin which is what I love most about the 3CE Stylenanda Shimmer Stick in Pink*. I mean, yes it's still makeup, but there is an element of it that makes me think of skincare.
The packaging for all 3CE products is a sleek matte black plastic with the logo done in a "hand-drawn" font.
The first thing I noticed other than the awesome pigmentation was how this highlighting stick felt a little like a makeup primer. When I blended the colour out with my finger tips, the cream element disappeared, but didn't quite feel like a powder. Instead, I felt like I had a smooth and primed surface. The texture also stopped me from looking oily as the day wore on and kept the highlight in all the right places!
Final verdict: No, a stick highlighter doesn't look quite as pretty as some of the beautiful highlighters you see in a compact, but I was actually pretty impressed with how this highlighter was more than just about makeup. It lasted, didn't look caked on even when layered and had a weightless consistency that smoothed out the look of my skin. This retails for $23 on Echoo Beauty which from what I have seen on ebay is not too crazy considering where this brand lies on the Korean beauty brand hierarchy.
