I am obsessed about contouring and highlighting products. I have even converted my shiny eyeshadows into highlights because sometimes they work better than some highlights. I can safely say this about this product too. I had high hopes and I was thinking it will be on similar lines like the Essence Circus Circus Highlighter. Read on for more details on Australis High Life Highlighting Powder.

My Experience with Australis High Life Highlighting Powder:
First of all, I was hoping this will be high shine and popping sort of a highlight, but it is not! The powder is super creamy soft, not at all powdery or chalky for me. You need a soft brush to deal with or else you might damage the product.
The case it comes in is nice too and can be safely dunked into your hand bag, there is no brush applicator provided, but that is okay. Again the claims of suiting all skin tones is true too since this is a neutral highlight, I can see more gold tone to it rather than a pink or a silver tone. I think more skin tones, especially warm skin can carry this off. Even beginners can try this and I will tell you why.
There is no chunky shimmer in it. The product is very fine, in fact too fine. Once I apply this, it blends into my skin. It literally blends into nothingness and my skin looks naturally shiny. As a result, I end up using too much, that is not the point of a highlight for me. I have oily skin and I like to use highlight for specific high points, but with this highlight, I feel I could use a larger brush and sweep it all over my face since it will make me glow naturally rather than give a pin-pointed highlighted look.
If you have very light skin, this might be a good idea to begin with. If you are looking for something more, like me, you will be disappointed since it really blends into the skin rather than standing out. Use it like a ove all highlight if you may.
