Is it worth getting? How much is it? Where can you get it?
I am so happy to see more local, independent beauty brands here in the Philippines! Goes to show how much Filipinos love anything beauty-related.
I first took notice of the brand Skinpotons when I saw some local beauty influencers posting about their products. I checked them out and while some products intrigued me, nothing piqued my interest as much as the Glow Bomb Highlight Palette did!
Newly released (just last August 23), I tried to get my hands on it ASAP! I haven’t really played with it as much as I would like before I shared a proper review on it, but I thought I’d give you my first impressions.
The packaging is simple but functional. It’s made out of cardboard, so it is very easy to travel with but not as sturdy as plastic or metal though so if you aren’t very careful, it will have dents. I love the holographic cover – so fun and cool to look at haha! It doesn’t have a mirror, which was a bummer, but I guess they had to do without it to keep the costs down.
The palette comes with 6 highlighters – an iridescent white, a pale gold, a duo chrome pale lilac, a rose gold, a golden bronze and a deep bronze. All beautiful and while some colors, on their own, won’t work for every skin tone, you can mix 2 or more colors together to find a perfect highlight for you.
The formula is a lot like the Juvia’s Place eyeshadows – quite creamy with extreme color payoff. I find though that it is better to use your fingers to apply this instead of a brush to get an intense highlight because when I use a brush, it doesnt give as intense of a payoff as I would like. You can use these as eyeshadows as well – which is what I did with the deep bronze shade, so pretty on the eyes. I haven’t used the duo chrome lilac and the iridescent white yet but I’ll do that soon!
Price-wise, it was fairly inexpensive at Php560 and you can order from Skinpotions directly via their Instagram, or from their mall stalls. It’s not on BeautyMNL yet, though so if you want to get your hands on it ASAP, best to buy from them directly (which is what I did, and I paid PHP100 for shipping within Metro Manila).
