Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter in Stunner

Liquid highlighters are one of my favourite ways to get a glow.  I love mixing them in with my foundation for an all over glow, or just patting on top of my cheek bones over or under my foundation if I don’t want an all over glow.  Tarte’s products are some that come highly recommended so when I spotted this in an offer I couldn’t resist ordering it.

I spotted this on Tarte’s website before Christmas and decided to order it along with a few other things.

When it arrived, I was surprised at its colour.  I expected it to be a deeper gold colour, but it’s actually a very light, champagne gold.

This picture was taken with flash.

It’s glittery, which I don’t like at all.  Although the glitter isn’t coming across in the photos.  I mean, I love a glow, but not a glittery glow.  It’s just not nice at all.

It’s a thick consistency and doesn’t mix well with foundations at all, nor does it apply well on top of foundation.

Anytime I have mixed it with foundation it has just left clumps of glitter on parts of my face. 

It’s almost as if I dabbed glitter on different areas of my face.

As for applying it over foundation, that doesn’t work either because it just lifts the foundation off.

I really wanted to love this and thought I would, but for me it is a complete fail.  Everything about it I just don’t like, the colour, finish, consistency, performance, just everything. Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter in Stunner

This costs $29 in Sephora and I think it was a similar price on Tarte’s website too, although it’s not showing on their site now.

I know this comes in two other colours as listed on Sephora and on Tarte’s websites however I have never tried them, but if their consistency is anything like this one, I would give them a miss.  It’s an expensive product that just doesn’t perform well at all.
