My feelunique.com order came today and I had to write another post out of excitement, even though I posted my ‘Brush Cleaning Day‘ post yesterday!
Primarily I made my order for the gorgeous Urban Decay NAKED Illuminated in Aura but but also added a couple of sneaky nail polishes into my shopping bag too – OPI Nail Lacquer!
Urban Decay NAKED Illuminated – Aura
At first glance I am speechless! This highlighter is gorgeous! To add to my obsessive highlighter collection, this is just a must have. Whilst not for everyone as it is super shimmery and striking, I always love a bit of sparkle and this would look gorgeous on the high points of your face for a night time glam look leaving a gorgeous iridescent shimmer.
Aura is described as a “soft pink shimmer with a golden iridescent sparkle” – the perfect rose gold for medium to dark skin tones but can also be blended into the skin for a more sheer glow for paler skin tones. I haven’t used used this on my face just yet but I’m going out tonight so will try it out and definitely report back!
A thick cardboard box with two compartments; the top compartment has a mirror and the highlighter and the bottom compartment contains a brush.
The texture of Aura is slightly chalky straight from the pan, but incredibly smooth and finely milled when swatched. Leaves a sparkly, almost metallic finish on the skin when applied. I feel that it may not have great adhesive qualities when applied to the skin as the product did not seem to stay in the same place, when swatched and seemed to move around quite a lot.
I feel like this would also look beautiful as a light mist over the centre of your eyelids to create a soft sparkle to your eyeshadow and give it that extra pop!
I bought this at £20.25 as it was on sale at feelunique.com!
Have you guys tried this highlighter out yet? What did you think of it? 🙂
