What’s a little contour without highlighter? I can never apply one without the other, so when I picked up these contour crayons I couldn’t help but pick up these Primark strobe crayons too.
When it comes to highlighting I usually stick to powders that are silver or white in colour, so I saw this as the perfect opportunity to get a little more adventurous and try out some golds and blushes.
Now, I was really impressed with the results from the contour crayons, but for some reason these just didn’t do it for me.
For £3 the packet of crayons came in a great selection of staple highlighting colours; silver, gold and blush. Although these crayons are highly-pigmented I found them to be very glittery. Now, I know highlighters are shimmery, but I personally don’t like them to be too sparkly and unfortunately for me these were.
When highlighting my features I like the product to look quite fluid and seamlessly blended, but I found these just sat on my face. Although the crayon was creamy in consistency, I found it really hard to blend.
Once I applied the highlighter onto the tops of my cheekbones it didn’t matter if I used a beauty blender or my fingers, I just couldn’t seem to blend it in properly.
I find it just sits there in a block on my face, which isn’t the look I’m trying to achieve. I mean it looks fine in the photos above, but in reality it was completely different.
These strobe crayons just weren’t for me. Even though they were high in pigmentation and had a creamy inconsistency, these strobe crayons just aren’t for me but £3 you seriously can’t complain. If you prefer glittery highlighters that sit quite prominently on the face, then you might like these ones.
What are your favourite highlighters to use? Have you used these before and liked them?
