If you’ve never tried a Makeup Geek highlighter, the formula is somewhat dry feeling to the touch, but still manages to have good pigment. They are hard pressed in the pan so they have no kick up, but they are not hard to pick up on a brush. I think that by today’s standards this is on the more subtle side of formulas, but I do think they can be built up for more impact.

The shade sunlight is described as a soft copper, ideal for medium skin tones. On me this shade accentuates more texture than I prefer to see after applying highlight. I do think that it is just the nature of this shade being a little light for me. It doesn’t come off ashy and I can get away with it, it just isn’t my ideal shade. I do go over it with my beauty blender and that helps it blend into the skin more.

Firework is described as a true copper, ideal for deep skin tones. Firework is the better color for me over sunlight. It gives a more subtle look (which I prefer) and that in turn doesn’t accentuate as much texture.

Makeup Geek Highlighters retail for $9.99 for just the refill pan. If you do not own a magnetic palette already, you’ll need to purchase a case and that retails for $4.99.

  1. Very nice! I bought the shade Midnight Sun last year (which is being discontinued already) but I haven’t worn it yet. It looks like a deeper yellow-gold version of Sunlight.
