My Experience with Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Lightning Dust Fire Crystal:
If there is any makeup product that I am legit obsessed with, apart from the foundation from Fenty Beauty, it is this highlighter duo from the same brand! It is so gorgeous and it’s like the most amazing duo for warm and medium to dusky skin tones. There are two highlighter shades in this palette – Lightning Dust and Fire Crystal.
These highlighters come in a gorgeous white holographic octagonal packaging with mirror inside. It’s just that it becomes a bit difficult to open it sometimes because it is very tight and the powders are not very loosely packed, so you know the brush kind of picks up the right amount of product.
Lightning Dust is a little subtle than Fire Crystal and what makes it interesting is that since you have a duo, the left side can be used for daytime looks and for a more subtle glow. It looks very natural. The right side highlighter can be used for evening looks. Both these highlighters look very natural because they are almost like skin tone highlighters. They pretty much become part of your skin.
Fire Crystal is soooooooooo pretty – it almost has that watery, dewy glow on your skin. The shimmers are very very smooth and not chunky at all and they do not accentuate my pores or accentuate my skin’s texture. It’s absolutely stunning. Also, these highlighters last so long on me. I have worn them for 7 to 8 hours and I haven’t seen them fading. By the end of the day, my skin is still glowing.
With these highlighters, very little goes a long way. I think having a duo highlighter is such an intelligent idea because you always have two highlighters – something that you can wear during the day and something that you can switch to wear during the evening event. This is just one shade, but with two different textures, that you can use from day to evening, you just have to carry it in your bag and you know it’s a total day-to-evening kind of a product. Also, the packaging is very gorgeous.
I have used my fingers as well as brushes to apply these highlighters and they work fine both ways. You know sometimes I just go “tap, tap, tap” with fingertips and it just works fine 😛
The only thing that I would like to point out is that – you would be able to find identical highlighters in many other brands also because it’s like that perfect champagne color that’s ideal for most warm skin tones. In fact, I think, this is one highlighter that would work for most Indian skin tones.
I just cannot get enough of this highlighter. This is probably my most favorite highlighter at the moment and I have been using it non-stop in pretty much day-to-day life and even in a couple of my looks. You can check those looks here:
