Not too long ago I wrote a (not too positive) review on the adorable I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts. Even though they looked so cute they really didn’t do it for me. But, besides creating blush hearts, I Heart Makeup creates highlighter hearts as well. Mainly because of the packaging I decided to give one a try, and today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, keep on reading!
The I Heart Makeup Highlighter Heart comes, surprise surprise, in a heart shaped packaging. Instead of pink, the highlighter heart is white and has purple letters on it. I still really like the look of the packaging. I think it’s girly and cute and I really don’t feel like it looks childish or cheap at all, which is definitely a good thing. The only little thing I don’t like about the packaging is that it’s so big. It does take in a lot of space in your makeup bag, so it’s definitely not a product you want to take with you when you’re travelling.
As far as I know, correct me if I’m wrong, the highlighter heart comes in one shade only, which is the one I have, called Goddess Of Love. This is a very pretty basic highlighting colour that would look good on pretty much every skin tone. But even though it’s basic, it’s not ugly or boring at all.
The colour of this highlighter is actually one of my favourite colours when it comes to highlighter. It’s a very pretty soft golden biscuity colour with a very pretty fine shimmer. I really like that the shimmers aren’t too chunky, since that could look cheapish. I do think it would have been nice if it had a bit more shimmer to it or at least a bit more shine, but aside from that I think it is really, really pretty.
Quality wise it’s not a bad highlighter at all. I expected it to be not too great since the blushing hearts by I Heart Makeup just weren’t my faves, but I’m positively surprised. It obviously isn’t comparable to a MAC highlighter, but it is great for what it is.
That because it has the right amount of pigmentation. It isn’t too extreme, but it isn’t too settle either. I like a pretty strong highlight so if I buy a highlighter I want it to be able to give me that, and this one is definitely capable of that. I think it’s very easy to work with and I think it looks absolutely stunning on the skin. It’s gorgeous.
The staying power however isn’t too impressive. If stays in place for about 2 to 4 hours, which, as I just said, isn’t impressive, but it isn’t very bad either. Most face powders don’t stay in place for too long so it’s not just this highlighter.
Overall I think the I Heart Makeup Goddess Of Love Highlighter is really pretty. I think the packaging is adorable and I love shade of the highlighter. I like that it’s strong enough for my liking, but it’s not too extreme. I also think it’s a very easy product to work with and I really enjoy using it. I highly recommend buying it!
The I Heart Makeup Tripple Baked Highlighter is available at the Makeuprevolution site and Superdrug for €6,99/£4,99.
