All of the entries for the year 2020 were completed before March 2020. Most items were bought in, or before, 2019. And so, despite the pandemic where buying makeup is definitely a lower priority, I'm still publishing these posts.
Milani Cosmetics’ Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in Moon Glow

All of the highlighters in this collection are very similar: a sheer beige or tan base with a smooth silver, gold, or copper shimmer. I don’t know how these would look on deeper skintones, but on my fair skin the base shade disappears and the shimmer is extremely subtle - more of a light glow than a strong shimmer. I can easily get the product on my brush, and blend it once applied - it’s just…very very soft.

I don’t know that I would buy these again, simply because I have other items in my collection that give me a stronger highlight without the need to layer it to make it pop. I might try adding this on top of darker blushes to both mute the blush shade and to add a soft glow.
