Review*: Ultraflesh Shinebox - Highlight and Shimmer collection

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Hello ladies, 
from this week on I'm back to my usual blogging schedule (fingers crossed) and today I have a long over due review for you. 
Over a month ago, I was contacted by StrawberryNET to become a part of their Blogger Collaboration Program. I already heard about this site before, but never ordered anything, so signed up for their Program and received this palette to review. 

I really didn't know what to expect and since I wasn't a fan of highlighters I was even more sceptical. 
The palette comes in this interesting box with three different compartments. It's actually quite bulky, so if you  like to travel light, or like carry around just a few essentials in your makeup bag, this will probably stay in your makeup drawer. 
I was very amazed when I found out that the compartments close magnetically. You can see that Figs&Rouge balm is just  hanging there on the end.

 So as I already mentioned, there are three compartments in this palette. In the first two there are highlighters and in the third one you get two small eyeliners. 
I really like the fact that you can open each compartment individually, so for instance if you only want an eyeliner, you can only open the third compartment.  
And now lets take a look at each individual shade.

All over Enhancer 

The first one is an all over enhancer Anyplace. As the name would suggest, it can be used all over your face and I have been using it on top of my cheeks, all over my eyelids, or in my inner corner. It's very pigmented, but easily blendable and  it's not powdery at all. 
It's a bronzy shade with a touch of peach. I like to add this on my cheeks whenever I'm wearing my more orange and coral blushes, since it gives you that ''bronze goddess'' look. I can't wait to get tanned in the Summer, because this will look awesome on darker skin. 

Anytime and Anywhere

Then we have two all over highlights Anytime an Anywhere. These one, on the other hand, are cream highlighters and I think this is a really nice touch to the palette, because it makes it even more versatile. 
Anytime is a champagne pink shade, which is actually my favourite of the bunch. It looks stunning on the cheeks, on the brow bone, or in the inner corner of your eye.
In my opinion it looks very natural and it gives you a lovely glow, but it doesn't make you look oily.
Anywhere is a golden shade that it's a little bit less pigmented than the rest. I didn't really use it as much as I did the other shades, but I'll try it again when I get more tanned. 

Last but not least, we have two all over shimmery eyeliners. 
Nude shimmer, is a nude shimmery eyeliner (go figure) that I love using on a daily basis. I love combining this one with my Max Factor Natural glaze eyeliner, since that one is a little bit more pigmented but completely matte. I add Nude shimmer on top, to make my eyes even more brighter and awake.
Secret shimmer is a white shimmery eyeliner and I use this one whenever my water line gets very red, or if I need some extra help with looking alive in the morning. 
Both of them are very creamy and long lasting. I also like that you don't have to sharpen them, you use twist them up and you're ready to use them. Since they're so small, you can easily pop them in you bag, if you like to touch up your makeup during the day. 

 Secret shimmer and Nude shimmer

I have to say that I've been loving this palette. I like that all of the products are nicely pigmented, you have five different products in one place and even though all of them are shimmery, they don't have chunky glitters which would make you look like a disco ball.
I have been using it almost every day since I got it and I think that says a lot, coming from someone who was never a big fan of highlighters.

Are you a fan of highlighters? Do you like the look of this palette?


*The product was sent to me to review. I didn't buy it with my money. But that didn't and won't ever affect my opinion about the product in any way. The review is based on my personal experience with the product.*
