 Review :
The texture of this highlighter is creamy something like light weight BB cream. Its not liquidy like High-beam and it is very easy to handle the consistency. Its almost a 90% dupe of high beam. (i will share the comparison pictures soon). It has a nozzle and when un-cap the tube product it starts coming out which I don't like. 

The packaging is not fancy. It Comes in a plastic tube with a twist off lid. Tube is of the same color as of the product inside the tube. It contains 18ml of the product and you have to carefully squeeze the product out of the tube. 

Its a pale pink pearl shade in the tube but after its blended its turned into pearl white and gives metallic/Frosty finish. Its quite pigmented and half a pea sized drop is sufficient to highlight your face features unless until you want to apply it on all of your face.This could also be mixed in with your liquid foundation to give it a more dewy finish.  

It glides on the skin smoothly but if you have dry skin you will have a little hard time. and it does highlight open pores. It dries really quickly and you have to be careful with its application because once its set its not going anywhere. 

It has shelf life of 12 month and is pride 7.99 USD and Available at many Stores online.
