Though I completely like binging on makeup products every now and then, I am not a big fan of heavy makeup. I have never been in the zone of layers of foundation, big strokes of highlighters, lip glosses and intense eye shadows; either I am not comfortable or don’t know how to go about it! Anyway, I like to sway among BB creams, lipsticks and light eyeshadows. Since highlighters are so in trend these days, I thought of trying one. One good thing about highlighter is that it can be customised according to your taste, preference or occasion. To start with, I wanted a simple highlighter which gives subtle shine and glitter. And I got Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in the shade Gold Light 210, which is formulated for both freshers and experienced folk.
Revlon offers a number of products under the ‘Photoready’ range like pressed powders, concealers, foundation, primers, BB creams and so on. Additionally, there are many variations of highlighters available under this brand. This particular highlighter is available in two shades – Gold Light and Pink Light. Read on for more details.

My Experience with Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick Gold Light:
This gorgeous highlighting stick is neatly packaged in a chubby retractable tube with a simple plastic cap. It is a perfect shade to suit medium to dark skin whereas the other shade – Pink light is apt for very fair to fair beauties. It is a nice peachy golden shade with the right amount of sheen to give a perfectly radiant look. The lightweight and soft formula is easy to blend to embellish you with a touch of gleam and glare.

So once you are done with your first step of makeup, i.e., primer followed by BB cream or foundation and powder, begin to sweep your highlighting stick to the desired areas of your face. You can focus on areas like the apples of the cheeks, cupid’s bow, collarbone, nose, chin, eyebrow bone (wherever you want to, but highlight those areas where your skin naturally catches the light). The product is designed to be applied directly, but you can rub or blend it with your fingers if you want to adjust the sheen.

So overall, this is a wonderful product to pep up your day, mood and makeup kitty. Enjoy.
