The Shimmering Skin Perfectors are among my favorite higlighters. I plan to collect them all you know, someday. Right now, I’m not even close to half of their shades. Anyway, let’s see if their limited release Rose Quartz will get the same loving from me.
A LUMINESCENT ROSE
Achieve a refined glow in any light with this limited-edition Shimmering Skin Perfector™ in Rose Quartz. It’s enriched with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light to amplify your natural radiance. The perfect neutral pale pink bring softness and warmth to the skin, this shade is unique in its own way. Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned pigment pearls adjust to your skin’s natural undertones. Perfect for intense highlighting or layering to create a truly unique glow. Unlike traditional methods, the one-of-a-kind formula blends pigments with liquids, providing an unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color coverage. The result is a high-shine, elegant shimmer finish that doesn’t look glittery.
Rose Quartz is described as a neutral pale pink but comes off as a light, light pink — more like pale, really with bits of microshimmers which are not noticeable at all. Its comes in a metallic pink compact, not rubber thankfully while the pan is designed to look some sort of abstract/geometrical art.
The formula is more powdery than creamy as compared to the very famous Champagne Pop. But nonetheless, the texture is still very soft and finely-milled. I’d describe the effect it gives as more of a wet sheen and not so much as a shimmer. The sheen is also not too obvious and I think this does not give that intense, in-your-face glow that I’ve come to associate with the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula. When the light hits it at certain angle though, it amplifies everything and it becomes so damn beautiful.
While the pigmentation is certainly buildable, it’s not as opaque as the other shades in the range, running somewhere between light to medium. It was easy to blend and fallout and excess product kick off was never an issue. It had a good wear time of 8 to 10 hours before fading on me.
Just so you can see the “sheen” effect.
If the other Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed shades are too over-the-top for you, then you might appreciate this. It’s not entirely subtle but it’s also not as intense. I like it and I don’t regret getting this because it’s a beauty all on its own.
Retailed for $38 from Sephora but is now sold out, ordered via @sweets_16_ph. Were you able to get this shade too?
