It’s a short-ish one today but I thought I’d do a quick review of the Cle Cosmetics Cushion Highlighter because I’ve had it for over a month now (received it in my Birchbox) and I’m using it so much – it’s great!
So to start off with, I’m obsessed with the packaging. It comes in a lovely minimalist-style compact that includes a mirror and a cushion, all neatly separated so it doesn’t get messy but is super easy to carry for on-the-go touch ups. I love that the packaging is white – it looks clean and is quite photogenic which is a plus if you love taking photos of your makeup (it can’t be just me, right?).
I have the shade Copper Rose which is quite a good description of it – it has a slightly copper tint but it’s light enough that it doesn’t look too pink on my very pale winter skin. There are 3 shades to choose from and the product is super buildable, which is great if you’re like me and get a lot darker when tanned.
According to the Cle Cosmetics website, they use Squalane and other hydrating ingredients to not only highlight but add actual moisture to the skin, giving it a natural glow. It definitely feels like a luxurious, hydrating texture rather than the gritty highlighters I’ve tried in the past. It also stays put for a long time and I like that it blends very well into liquid foundation when applied on top of it, so it looks natural not cakey.
So overall, I’m very impressed with this highlighter – the shade looks great, it’s practical, it feels good on the skin and it has good lasting power. It’s become my favourite highlighter I’ve used so far so I’d definitely recommend you give them a try! You can check out the Cle Cosmetics website here.
