E.L.F. Apricot Glow Baked Highlighter is on sale this week for $1.60 and should get you a cheap, budget-friendly glow that you might be able to see from space if reviews and youTube are anything to go by.
I dunno if that’s technically possible but if it is, “Hi up there! Take me to your leader!”
Everyone was raving this shade last Summer because well, golden apricot highlighter, Summer, glow, you know how it is! Combing all that in the heat of the Summer and you got Insta-viral sensationalism.
As for me, I can take this formula or I can leave it. It’s a baked texture that has a bit of a gritty feel and doesn’t pick up well with a brush. That’s the bad news.
The good news is it looks really, really, really pretty if you get it to apply correctly. I apply a few layers before I mist myself with setting mist to get de-powder the look and get the glow amped up. If you do it right you’ll end up with the most beautiful golden peachy glow.
But as they say you get what you pay for because this is far from finely milled and the texture doesn’t make this the most user friendly highlighter around but at this price, well, I can’t really complain too much! As you can see from my swatch it doesn’t quite show up but it does layer very well skin without clinging to drier areas however, as I said the mist does help to break it down and give it a better sheen on my face.
