So I know I’ve alluded to this before…but I have a thing about glitter… I LOVE glitter and shimmer. So much so that I want to be a sparkling ninja… Yes, you read that right. A ninja who can pull of sparkles. (It’s possible!)
But when it comes to a “glow”…I want only the “glow” part.
Angelic, pearlescent, ethereal…
Lit from within, or gleaming radiance…
But no disco glitter.
Neither shimmer sparkles nor glinting particles… Puhleeze!
And you know…it’s remarkably hard to find! Ask for a matte highlighter, or one without shimmer (something like “jumbo shrimp” in the way of oxymorons, I realize) and you get cross-eyed looks…or flat-out “what?”s.
“But it’s POSSIBLE,” I protest. And, thanks to Hard Candy, I can prove it!
Nary a sparkle in sight with this Candle Lit Baked Illuminating Duo! I am IN LOVE! I almost bought a second one today – it was actually in my basket! – and I said to myself “seriously? You don’t wear much EVER, you really think you will get through the one you bought YESTERDAY that fast!?“
“But what if I do!?” my brain interjected. “What if they stop making it!?”
Remarkable the effect favorite products can have on us, isn’t it?!
Anyway, one of these has a pinky iridescence to it…and the other is just a creamy, bright hue. It imparts a radiant glow, absolutely, WITHOUT making you look like a disco ball. It’s subtle enough to wear outside and not feel like someone is staring at your shimmer…but thinking “wow, she really glows” instead. WAY more of a compliment, don’t we think?
I sure do.
LOVE these two.
