Liquid highlighters are one 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.
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.
