I’ve been on the highlighter struggle bus for some time now. I just can’t seem to find one that is affordable, and also shows up on my skin. I want that semi-blinding, you-can-see-my-cheeks-from-space kind of glow. Though I do love the Mary Lou-Manizer from theBalm, it’s not my perfect match, and I’ve been on the hunt for better.
Those who know me know I swear by OFRA Cosmetics liquid lipsticks. I posted about my favorite “Havana Nights” but have since acquired a few more colors. So when OFRA announced their new baked highlighter with FIVE different shades… y’all.. I JUMPED on that (using MannyMUA’s discount code of “MANNYMUA for 30% off).
I finally got the gorgeous little beauty today and I am NOT disappointed.
The OFRA Cosmetics Beverly Hills Baked Highlighter is gorgeous in itself, but OFRA has stepped up the game overall. The first thing I noticed was the packaging is gorgeous. Since my first OFRA order–which had just a sicker on the lipstick tube and was very underwhelming– they have stepped up their game. The box it came shipped in is adorable, and when I opened it was presented so nicely inside the box that I felt like I was truly having a lavish experience.
For the product itself, I will admit that some colors are more creamy/pigmented than others. The peachy/rose pink, and true pink with gold flecks don’t have near the creaminess of the champagne, white and gold. The gold is the buttery-est of them all, as I’m sure you can tell in the swatch.
I have applied a mix of the white and peachy-pink color to my cheeks and am very excited to use this for a full face of make-up. I will update this post with a picture of said full face when I do so you can get the true effect. It has the perfect shine/reflect, without looking like a stripe of glitter on my cheek. I can’t wait to have an excuse for a full-face so I can wear this bad boy out!
Overall, for the price tag and the fact that you get FIVE colors in this one, 6g compact, I’m a happy camper. Even with two less-than-perfect products, I have zero regrets about buying this product.
If you have been on the fence about getting it, looking for a new highlighter, or haven’t tried OFRA Cosmetics yet, I would give this my stamp of approval. Blind your enemies with your beautiful cheeks! Go forth and get you an OFRA Cosmetics Beverly Hills Baked Highlighter!
