6 year love affair
as embarrassing as it is to admit, i'm still working on the same compact i've had since high school.... roughly 6 years ago. this highlighter has withstood the test of time as my ultimate go-to highlighter even during the massive craze around 2016-2017 where everyone and their mothers were releasing new highlighters every week. i love the versatility of this formula-- it builds up super strong for a blinding highlight but also sheers down beautifully for a lit-within type of glow, which is my preferred look. this particular shade is very versatile in my opinion and can suit a variety of skin tones but i find it especially flattering on warm undertones. if you prefer wearing your highlight more naturally then you can be sure you're getting a massive bang for your buck cuz this thing will literally last forever. and if you don't, you'll still probably be working on this for a long while, so can't go wrong either way. overall, definitely holy grail status for me.
