Product Review | Estee Edit Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder in Heat ($32, Sephora)
Product Details (from Sephora's website): A buildable, fluid strobing powder in a golden-peach color to give skin a glowing look. Define and spotlight your favorite features with this ultra-creamy, Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder. This highlighter features a universal, golden-peachy shade that gives every skin tone the perfect sunlit glow. This uber-creamy, highly pearlized strobing powder—part cream and part powder—glides on skin, leaving behind an intense sheen. Formulated with ultra-fine micro-pearls in multiple sizes, the powder refracts light for a soft, modern, illumination. Formulated without Parabens.
Review: I purchased this during the Sephora Spring VIB Sale event this past April. This is one of those items I actually picked up in store right after returning from Cancun. Surprisingly, this was the only highlighter I bought from the sale and this was not on my original list. I have never bought any product from Estee Edit nor have I been really interested until I walked past the aisle at Sephora and saw all the silver packaging in line (I also ended up getting their blush which I will be reviewing soon). I believe Estee Edit is the hipper or more youthful version of Estee Lauder.
The box packaging is a white box with a splash of royal blue on the corner with black and silver typography. The product is in a nice silver corrugated textured case. This product is beautiful. The powder is soft, smooth, creamy and buttery - literally this highlighter is all kinds of amazing to the touch. As you can see from the swatch below, it is a nice mix of peach, light gold and champagne pearl - which in my opinion will be a good match for a variety of skin tones. One thing that I love about this highlighter is when applied on the skin, it has that "wet" look similar to what liquid highlighters provide - hence the name Fluid Powder. This highlighter is very pigmented so go with a light hand but if you want to reach the other side of the universe, go ham. I am truly happy with this Estee Edit purchase and I would definitely buy another one, however, this is the only shade that they have. I wish they would come out with more shades.
