Honest Beauty Rose Gold Glimmer Set ( Instant Spark , Lips for Days, Shine for Nights )


The holiday season is upon us and with that comes holiday gift sets (limited edition!) and SALES!  You guys, I love the holidays and you can bet that I'm incredibly excited to review this new Limited Edition release from Honest Beauty!  The Rose Gold Glimmer Set has a Luminizer in Instant Spark and two lip glosses in Lips for Days and Shine for Nights.  I love highlighters and lip products (two of my favorite makeup items), so I knew I had to jump on this palette before it was gone! These products didn't disappoint and I decided to test them out so I could give you guys the full low-down before they sell out!



Rose Gold Glimmer Set

Instant Spark



Ingredients:
Mica, Silica, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Squalane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Lauroyl Lysine, Tocopherol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Hectorite, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

Experience:
This is a very Rose-gold almost light Bronze highlighter on my skin tone.   Since my skin tone is a bit lighter, I usually wear this on my cheekbones or just as an all-over cheek color that gives me a slight healthy flush and glow.  I'm not one to be a huge fan of glitter in my cheek products, but all of the more pigmented highlighters that Honest Beauty has been churning out has changed my perspective a bit.  I now enjoy a healthy glow on my cheeks and this highlighter never makes it more apparent than just a bit of shine every time I move my face.  This isn't a greasy, mid-day shine, mind you.  This is a healthy, just-got-out-of-a-spa day kind of glow that I particularly enjoy.  It wears well throughout the day and I can see myself going back to this often( though, your girl has way too many cheek products these days!).

Experience:
Lips for Days- This is a beautiful clear gloss with tiny gold glitter specks that give an overall glimmer to my lips.  This gives a high-shine finish so it isn't for those who don't like glossy lips.  I have layered this over other color products on the lips and I find that it is very good at just taking an original color to the next level.  I also enjoy wearing this alone to make my bare lips look glossy and really pull a natural look together.

Shine for Nights-  This is a berry wine color that has high pigmentation and leaves a bit of a wine colored stain on the lips.  I adore this color.  I'm the kind of girl who gravitates towards wine colored lip products for night looks so I knew the color would be up my alley.  This doesn't get on my teeth when I layer it on and I truly enjoy that about the product (I seem to chronically have lipstick stains on my teeth especially in the most embarrassing situations!).


The formula of these lip glosses are different than the usual Honest Beauty Lip glosses offered individually.  I LOVE the formula of the original glosses (I daresay they are my favorite lip gloss formulation to date), but these are not as smooth and moisturizing as the original formulation.  They are a bit heavier and stickier.  Instead of sinking into the lips, these tend to sit on top of the lips.  I am not personally bothered by this as it isn't a horrible or unbearable formulation, but I do believe the original lip gloss is still my favorite.  The applicator is also different as the original was a flat spatula while this one is a more rounded/ flat-tipped applicator with more precision and less surface area.  I am so in love with the look that these glosses give my lips that I can stand to give the formula a bit of a free pass on this one.

  2. You've convinced me to get this! I was on the fence about this one until I read your review and saw your swatch of the colors---it looks way more appealing than the swatch on the Honest Beauty website.
