Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow Champagne Review
Brand Claims: Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow contains ultrafine light-reflecting pearls that melt into the skin to give you a polished, natural-looking radiance. It imparts instant luminosity and has excellent blending properties, besides being light-weight and long wearing. The high percentage of thin pearls deliver a homogeneous glow, while the aqua based formula cools your skin.
Made up of a special mix of copolymers, Ultime Pro Metaliglow leaves a comfortable, shiny, transparent film for a youthful-looking complexion.
Faces Ultime Pro Metaliglow belongs to class of liquid highlighter housed in clear plastic bottle ( 15ml) with pump dispenser which is kept safe with black plastic lid.Pump bottle is convenient to use and looks attractive. However , make sure you clean the nozzle after use as the product tends to clog the hole for next use.
This liquid gel textured highlighter is light weight and apply with cooling sensation. It is available in three shades – Opal,Champagne and Topaz. I picked up champagne 02 for medium skin complexion( NC 42). Illuminator has high reflective superfine pearl with golden iridescent particles.Being aqua based , it is great option for oily skin beauties as creamy liquid highlighters tend to break out oily skin. Dry skin girls will like it too for long lasting hydration and non drying formula.Now since it is a liquid highlighter , you can either mix it with your foundation for overall illumination or apply it on the high points of face for focussed radiant glow.
Although it spreads effectively but sets up pretty fast. So the blending is not seamless even if you act swiftly. Dotting and blending will not work with this highlighter as it dries up quickly and looks patchy. Any attempt to blend once it sets up can ruin entire makeup base also. If blended swiftly, It ends up leaving harsh lines which refuse to blend once it sets.
I prefer using it mixed with my foundation for overall illumination . However , if you are seeking to use it as localized highlighter apply it with a beauty sponge . You can see in demo picture (later in post), I applied it with damp YBP Makeup perfector and blended it simultaneously before it sets.
Once blended it gives beautiful” glow from within “ effect due to ultra fine pearl particles used in formula. Micro shimmer particles enhance overall radiance without looking flashy. It stays on my face for 6+ hours. Once it set, neither does it migrate nor shimmer gains prominence towards the end of wear. It fades uniformly and being aqua based comes out easily with any good makeup remover.
VANILLA RATINGS 7.5/10
Faces Metaliglow is a gel based liquid illuminator that spreads easily and brightens up my complexion with instant illumination. It has superfine light reflecting pearl particles that impart natural looking radiance. Water based formula is a good option for all skin types especially oily skin. It is available in three shades Opal for lighter skin tones, Champagne for medium skin tones and Topaz for duskier skin tones. Formula is paraben free and comes in convenient pump packaging.
However my only gripe is that it sets up really fast . Though I have devised a way of applying it seamless but it has tendency to look patchy if not blended swiftly. I still maintain that it is best used when mixed with foundation as it is non-tinted , it does not interfere with foundation shade and feels hydrating.
