Have you ever seen something so beautiful that it literally doesn’t matter if it’s practical or not, you just want to purchase it regardless? Well, that is what I felt when I bought this Trophy Wife highlighter.
It’s pretty so pretty. Stunning in fact. Now to answer the question that I know will be asked no, you don’t need it but you want it though. I sent two of my Fenty Beauty purchases back to Sephora but this one is staying in my stash indefinitely.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna
Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Shade Purchased: Trophy Wife – 3D hyper-metallic gold
Available at Sephora
First of all, the packaging is gorgeous. The outside of the sleek white octagon is pearlized and has multicolored shimmer. It’s thin and contains a mirror with Fenty Beauty printed in small gray print. The attention to detail is there.
The product inside is shimmery. Very shimmery. The glitter is very noticeable and if you don’t like glitter on your face, use this as an eyeshadow because you will probably hate it as a highlighter. Me, well I’ve tweaked this one a bit and made it work for me as a highligher. It looks less glittery when applied with my MAC 224 brush and then using my damp beauty blender to diffuse it. Another way I wear it is to apply it before I set my foundation that way when I set my foundation it calms some of that yellow gold color down.
Now with all that, as always, it’s up to you to decide whether this is the product you want or not but for me and my house, we will be shimmering in the sunlight with this gorgeous product from Fenty!
If this highlighter isn’t your speed here are some of my favorites for dark skin tones.
