Review*: P2 Glow Up! Highlighter eyes + cheeks (High Gleam)

Friday, December 12, 2014

Hello ladies, 
today I have another review from the collaboration with Moja Drogerija. 
I was so excited when I saw that Anja offered us some more P2 products, since their lipstick completely blew me away and it's still one of my go-to shades.

Pozdravljene punce, 
danes imam za vas zopet oceno izdelka, ki sem ga prejela v sodelovanju z Mojo Drogerijo. Anja nam je tudi tokrat omogočila testiranje p2 izdelkov, kar me je zelo razveselilo saj me je njihova šminka popolnoma prevzela.

This time we could choose a nail polish and a highlighter, but I decided to only choose the latter as I already have way too many neglected nail polishes in my stash.
I decided to go with the shade 030 High Gleam since it looked like a lovely pinkish shade on the website and I don't own a similar highlighting shade.

Tokrat smo punce lahko izbirale med p2 laki za nohte in osvetljevalci obraza. Jaz sem se odločila zgolj za osvetljevalec v odtenku 030 High Gleam, ker je na strani izgledal kot nežno roza odtenek in bi tako v mojo zbirko osvetljevalec vnesel malo raznolikosti.

The packaging is nothing special and if I were to judge the product by the looks of it, I would definitely pass on it.
It comes in a tiny plastic pot that's actually really sturdy. Since it's so tiny and sleek, it's great for carrying around in your makeup bag or for travelling. 
You get 3g of product, it retails for 4,49€ (here) and it comes in two other shades as well (010 High Shine and 021 High Beam).
What do they say about the product? Transparent pearlized highlighter for placing shimmering, brilliant accents on eyes and cheeks. 

Samo pakiranje izdelka ni nič posebnega, in če bi ga morala kupiti ali oceniti zgolj na prvi pogled, bi ga definitivno preskočila.
Embalaža je klasično plastična, a deluje zelo trdno. Je tudi zelo majhna, zato je primerna za potovanja ali prenašanje v vaši torbici z ličili.
Za 3g izdelka boste na Moji Drogeriji odštele 4,49€, izbirate pa lahko še med dvema drugima odtenkoma (010 High Shine in 021 High Beam).


Since I have a combination to oily skin I'm very picky about my highlighters and I only actually started using them this year. I find that a lot of them make my skin look too shiny, and when you have an oily skin this is the last thing you really want.
High Gleam looks like a light pinky shade in the pan, and it also looks extremely sparkling and shimmery yet without any noticeable chunky glitters.
Just look how shiny and reflective it looks when the light hit it on the right photo. Heavenly sparkles right there.
When you touch it with your fingers, it's so smooth and soft that I actually though it was a creamy highlighter at first. It's also extremely pigmented when you swatch it with your fingers, but looks more frosty white with a hint of pink undertones on your skin.

Ker je moja koža mešana/mastna sem glede osvetljevalcev zelo izbirčna, saj jih večina na meni izgleda preveč svetlikajoče, kar je ob bolj mastni koži zadnja stvar, ki bi jo želela.
High Gleam v embalaži izgleda kot zelo šimrast nežno roza odtenek, a brez velikih in opaznih bleščic. 
Ko sem izdelek prvič swatch-nila sem najprej mislila, da gre za kremast izdelek, saj je na dotik bil tako zelo gladek in mehak. Izdelek na prstu izgleda zelo pigmentiran, na koži pa ne izgleda tako rozast kot v sami embalaži.

I have to admit that I was kinda scared of it since it's so pigmented and I didn't want to end up looking like a disco ball, but when you actually apply the highlighter with a brush, you get a lot more subtle and natural looking finish.
The product itself is not powdery at all, and if you want a more noticeable highlight, you can easily build it up as I did in my inner corners. It's also really easy to blend. 
This truly is a multitasking product; it looks stunning as a brow bone highlight, it instantly lifts up your brows and makes them look really put together. It also looks gorgeous as an inner corner highlighter, it instantly makes you look more awake and it reminds me a bit of MAC Phloof! which has more golden undertones and is my favourite inner corner highlighter.
But I have to say, my favourite way to use it is as a cheekbone highlight. Although it's very sparkly, it somehow manages to look very natural and is perfect for every day makeup. It lifts everything up and gives your cheeks this amazing sheen that looks like you're glowing for within.
I love the fact that it doesn't enhance my pores and that it still doesn't look too shiny or over the top even when my face gets oiler throughout the day.
I noticed that it disappeared after a few hours in my inner corners, but that's probably due to the fact that I tend to touch my eyes a lot, and it was also a bit worn off on my brow bones by the end of the day, but it looked intact on my cheeks. 
I actually think it started to look better and better throughout the day on my cheeks, which still baffles me. 

Sama pigmentiranost izdelka me je pravzaprav kar malce plašila, a vse skupaj na srečo izpade veliko bolj naravno in nežno, ko izdelek dejansko naneseš s čopičem.
Osvetljevalec ni preveč pudrast, se ne drobi, z lahkoto se zabriše, prav tako pa nadgradi če želiš bolj opazen videz.
Vsekakor je multiuporaben izdelek; prekrasno izgleda na predelu pod obrvmi saj jih dvigne in naredi videti bolj urejene. Čudovito izgleda tudi kot osvetljevalec na čisto notranjem predelu veke, saj te takoj naredi videti bolj spočito in budno. 
Brez dvoma pa je moja najljubša uporaba tega izdelka na zgornjem predelu ličnic. Čeprav je dokaj bleščičast, izgleda na obrazu zelo naravno in nežno. Ličnice privzdigne in jim da prečudovit lesk.
Všeč mi je, da ne poudari por in da ne izgleda preveč svetlikajoče niti ko moja koža postane bolj mastna čez par ur.
Na licih zdrži skozi celoten dan in izgleda popolnoma enako kot na začetku, na očeh izgine po parih urah (najverjetneje zato, ker se oči kar veliko dotikam), pod obrvmi pa do večera tudi rahlo zbledi.
Najbolj me je presenetilo dejstvo, da na licih skozi dan nekako uspe izgledati vedno bolje in bolje.

What can I say? Another p2 product that completely blew me away. Now I already want the shade High Beam, thanks to other Slovenian bloggers and their swatches.

Glow Up Highlighter je še eden p2 izdelek, ki me je popolnoma očaral in sedaj imam zaradi drugih slovenskih blogerk nagledan tudi odtenek High Beam.

What is your favourite highlighter at the moment?

Sanja ♥ 

*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.*

  2. Jaz sem šele po oceni ugotovila, da na zadnji strani piše "transparetn highlighter", tako da me niti več ne preseneča, zakaj se tako lepo zlije s kožo. Mi je pa tvoj odtenek tudi krasen. :)
