I Heart Makeup Goddess of Love Highlighter Review

by - 22.11.17



I Heart Makeup has quickly become one my favourite brands because they have so much cute stuff for such an affordable price. They've recently started stocking their products in Kruidvat, which makes me so happy because it's about time that Belgium has British and American brands available to buy. I previously tried out their Golden Bar Eyeshadow Palette. I'm definitely going to be trying out more from them, but I decided to follow up with a highlighter. Isn't that typical of me?

PACKAGING AND COST

This highlighter comes in a cardboard heart-shaped box, which in all honesty does feel quite cheap. The highlighter is stuck in with a plastic attachment but that does start to slide out once the glue dries. However, I cannot imagine this breaking whilst travelling as it seems reasonably sturdy. I like the golden colour of the box as well. The shade name is written on the bottom of the box. The lid is slightly loose as well but it doesn't just fall off so that should be fine too.

For my Belgium babes, you can buy this highlighter from Kruidvat for 5.99 Euros.

THE PRODUCT

The highlighter itself is on the powdery side and there is a reasonable amount of fallout when you pick up the product with a brush. I personally use a fan brush and there is plenty of space to fit it in and evenly coat your brush with the highlighter, so that's no problem. The shade is a gorgeous light, champagney colour with a sort of icier undertone running through it. I prefer a warmer highlight shade as I am darker skinned but this would look stunning on light-medium skin tones. You can easily build this up to be super intense if you like, but it is a pretty "BAM" highlighter already so I would initially go in with a light hand.

If you do have darker skin, I was having a little look on the website and their bronzer shades look really pretty and all their products have the same formulation so the quality will be just as good.


OVERALL

Overall, I would definitely tell you to go get this asap if you have fairer-medium skin, but if you do have deeper skin like mine, then I would say skip. I honestly loved the way this sits on the skin, the formulation and the shade. But it just doesn't work for my skin tone. I'll be passing this onto my aunt who can get much better use out of it, as I've barely used it. This would make a great Christmas present and I already have a friend in mind who I think would love this!

  1. The shape is really cute but it's sort of sad that they don't have a shade that matches your skin tone :/

  5. That shade is beautiful, it is right up my street! I hate it when a product is good but the colour doesn't suit my skin tone! We all have that certain shade we like! Mine is 100% champagne shades, I love them! xx
