I picked up the Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder a couple of months back now.
Catrice, as you probably know if you read Beautynook alot is one of my favourite super affordable brands, so I am always stalking the stands in Penneys and my local chemists for the new releases.
The High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder in 010 Light Infusion is one of them.
This is one of the prettiest more affordable highlighters I have ever tried.
It’s a baked powder and Catrice say it is ‘Infused minerals and fine light-reflecting pearls for a luminous look’
To me, it’s a pearl coloured highlighter, but I think it depends on your skin tone how pearl toned it appears. On my pale skin it has more of a coolness to it, kind of similar to theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer which I have a review of here, but just more on the subtle side.
If you look close there is definitely a sparkle to the Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder, but it’s not chunky or unflattering.
As this is a baked product, the texture is powdery when applied with a brush, but if you apply with your fingers it is soft to the touch, so don’t let the fall out deter you. When I apply it to my cheekbones, I normally use my fingers to press it into the skin.
You can always dampen your brush too or use a sticky base underneath to give the product more opaqueness. Here it is applied with a dampened brush on the left versus to dry on the right.
For me, I like that it has more of a subtle glow to it, I already have full on highlighters in my collection like Mary-Lou and Becca’s Champagne Pop (review here).
Overall, I am a big fan of the Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder. I think it would work on many different skin tones. It’s gorgeous as a standard highlighting on the high points of the face, as an eyeshadow and an inner corner highlight too!
The fact that Catrice gave this one a name ‘Light Infusion’ would lead me to believe there may be more colours released in the future 🙂
You should be able to pick it up from any good Catrice stockist, including Penneys. I can’t find a stockist selling it online, but if you head to Pointy, they will give you in-store sellers around the country.
The Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder will set you back €5.50 for 8 grams of product.
