What it is formulated WITHOUT:
Review: Fenty Beauty is one of my favorite cosmetic line. Not only are their price points reasonable, their complexion products work for my skin. The Mean Money and Hustla Baby Killowatt Highlighter duo is my favorite from Fenty so when they released this last year, I was intrigued. At first glance, you can see chunky glitters which could be a turn off for many, myself included. However, upon touch, it is silky smooth. You do not feel any grit. It really is just a nice veil of shimmer, like diamonds. It is very pretty on the skin. I feel that it is best applied with a tapered highlighter brush such as the BH Cosmetics Studio Pro 18 (I highly recommend it) and then tap and blend with a damp sponge for a flawless glow from within appearance. Do not be afraid of the white-looking cast (see swatch below) because it does not look like that on the skin. I do not have any kind of formula similar to this in my highlighter stash, so this is definitely one that I am glad I picked up. I definitely recommend this product because it is not the same as most highlighters. It is literally a diamond veil.
The box packaging is a nice blush pink color with geometrical shapes in various shades of pink and purple. Plus, the box is a glitterazzi texture. Fear not, it is not the same texture as the actual veil. The actual compact is a blush nude pink color with a mirrored material. The compact has a full mirror as well.
