Today, I am writing about a product of a brand that I introduced on IMBB a couple of months back. Active Cosmetics is actually an UK-based brand whose cosmetics are available online. One can easily find its makeup palettes being sold at reasonable rates on websites like Amazon and ebay. I had already reviewed a beautiful eyeshadow from the same brand here.
My Take on Active Cosmetics Eyeshadow (Highlighter):
This eyeshadow is again a gift from my friend who sent it as I was all praises for the previous eyeshadow she sent me. Again being a part of a kit, this shade does not come with a name or number, but the shade brilliantly fits to be a highlighter. I am always picking up this color whenever I am doing any EOTD for my reviews or any eye look on weekends while going out. I think my eye makeup is not complete till I use it to highlight my brow bone.
The color is pale gold with very light golden shimmer. The shimmer is visible only when bright light falls on it, otherwise it just adds a beautiful and noticeable sheen on the brow bone. I even use it on the inner corner of the eye and it instantly brightens up that area too. It acts as a nice face highlighter too and alone it can be used to create the perfect neutral look, see I use it multiple ways and in all cases, it looks just so natural yet beautiful.
Texture and Staying Power:
The texture is soft and is nicely pigmented. The shadow applies nicely and blends in with other colors with great ease. There is very little fall out and it does not crease or fade away even after many hours even without a proper eyeshadow base.
It comes in an absolutely sturdy packaging and is provided with a soft and cute applicator. I sometimes use it for applying the eyeshadow on the inner corner of my eyes.
Overall, I am actually in love with this eyeshadow and use it every now and then.
Summing its good and not-so-good points for you all.
Pros of Active Cosmetics Eyeshadow (Highlighter):

Do I Recommend/Will I Repurchase Active Cosmetics Eyeshadow (Highlighter)?
I really need to find out a dupe for this eye shadow or need to get more supply of this one only as I love using it :jog: . I highly recommend Active eyeshadows to anyone who wants to venture out in this new brand’s products. :victory2:
