{Gifted} I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited about a review post before and that is because for this post I was very kindly gifted the new highlighters from Bali Body. Bali Body is an Australian Sun care, self tan and skincare brand with all of their products being vegan, cruelty free and made in Australia! In today’s post I’ll be sharing with you all of my thoughts on the New Highlighter Glow Sticks from Bali Body along with some other goodies!

First Impression 

When I first saw the email in my inbox I was so excited you wouldn’t believe. I have been blogging for a while now and I still get super excited when I’m asked to try out a brands products. I had known about BaliBody before and had seen and heard very good things about their self tan and skincare products but I’ve never had the opportunity to try anything out (until now). Along with the 3 highlighter glow sticks that I was very generously gifted, I was also given a shimmer body oil which sounded amazing and also their BB Cream which I have been dying to try. Highlighters have got to be one of my favourite items of makeup because they just complete any makeup look and I never feel fully ready unless I’ve got a bit of glow on and that’s why I couldn’t wait to try out these liquid highlighters.

The three shades of the highlighters I was gifted was Moonlit a really gorgeous shimmery gold shade that also has some micro glitter in which is amazing, Rose Gold which is obviously a rose gold shade that is more on the glowy side that glittery and then there's also Sunkissed which is a gorgeous deep bronze shade that is also pretty glowy. The other product that I gifted from BaliBody is the BB Cream  and the shade I got in this is Tan which I thought would suit my skin tone the most. Then also I was given the Shimmer Body Oil that has hints of bronze and gold Shimmer which sounds amazing.


Packaging

The packaging of the liquid highlighter is very sleek but also pretty simple which I like. I am definitely a sucker for packaging but I also love when it's really simple and classic. The outer packaging of the highlighters is a pretty champagney grey colour with the product name on the front with some instructions on how to use it and the ingredients. The component of the highlighter itself is again really sleek, with the lid being a shiny gold top and the rest of the tube being clear so you can see the product shade. For the BBC Cream it actually comes in a cardboard box and on the back it has all the information about the product, the bottle itself is a squeezy rose gold tube with the name and product information also on the bottle. The last product that I wasn't gifted from BaliBody is the Shimmering Body Oil which is in the signature bottle shape that's I think we have all seen from the brand before.


Product Amount

When I first saw the highlighters I could tell right away that there was a lot of product in each of the tubes and then when I went and checked there was 4ml in each of the highlighters  which isn't that much  comparing it to other highlighters that I have but with this type of product you only need such a small amount that it should last you ages. Each of the highlighters retail for £25.95 which is actually the same as the BB Cream and the Shimmering Body Oil. The BB Cream had a lot more product in at 35ml and for the price of this product I think it's pretty reasonable as again I only think you need a small amount of this product each time you use it. Then lastly the Shimmering Body Oil has 100ml of product which is a very generous amount comparing it to the Nuxe Body Oil which is only 50ml but is still £21.50!


First Impression

The highlighters was the first product that I really wanted to try out and swatch because they just looked so pretty in the tube. When I was swatching the highlighters the first thing I noticed was how smooth they were, they weren't chunky at all which I have found that can happen with similar products. I also noticed that when swatching these highlighters that Moonlit is a slightly different to the other two highlighters because it is more transparent and has more of a glittery finish where the other two have more of a glowy finish.



The first time that I tried all of the products that I was gifted I wanted to do a full makeup look and wear it for the day to see how it wore on my skin. The first product I tried was the BB Cream, when applying it I decided to dot it over my face and then blend it out with a brush which I didn't really like the finish it gave so I decided to do it the old fashioned way and used my fingers and the finish was a lot better. Once it was blended out I did notice that it was slighty too pink for me and I also noticed that it did slightly oxidise and to fix the shade issue I added a small amount of a foundation that I had was too light for me and then the shade looked perfect. The finish it gave my skin was really nice, I looked glowy but not oily and the coverage was more of a medium to full coverage which I liked a lot and the product is very buildable.



After I finished off my base makeup I then wanted to play around with the highlighters. Out of all three of the shades I feel like Moonlit and Rose Gold would be the perfect shades for my  skin, Sunkissed is a shade that I think would be the perfect shade for anyone with deeper skin shades as the bronzy tone skin would compliment their skin tone so well. Before I set my skin with powder I added Moonlit to the left side of my face (photo above) and Rose Gold to the right side (photo below). I stared to use a sponge to blend the highlighter but I found that it soaked up a lot of the product so I then decided agin to just use my finger to blend it out and it worked like a dream. I noticed instantly that Moonlit is a really gorgeous shade which gives the skin a really pretty shimmer  that can be pretty subtle or you can build it up for more of an impact. On my right side I applied some Rose Gold to my cheek bones by dabbing the product on and blending it out with my fingers, out of the two I think that Rose Gold gave more of a glowy impact and I think this is my favourite shade out of the bunch. The lipgloss looking applicator made it really easy to apply the product to my brow bone with the tip of the doe foot and blended it out with my fingers slightly and it gave a gorgeous glow.





The last product that I tried out was the shimmering body oil. This product is the perfect thing to wear on the body to add the most gorgeous subtle glittery look to the skin. For this product you only need a really small amount because it spreads really well I’ve the skin leaving it feeling amazingly smooth but not greasy or oily.

Wear Test

After wearing all of the products for a full day I was really impressed with how my skin looked and how good my makeup looked after wearing it for a few hours. At first I noticed that the BB Cream oxidised a bit but once it was initially applied to my skin it didn’t get any darker throughout the day which I could deal with. I usually love a matte finish but I was actually surprised by how much I liked the finish or this product, it left my skin looking really glows but not greasy which is what I was a little bit afraid of. At the end of the day my skin is did look a little oily but no more than it usually does after wearing a foundation all day so I was very happy with how it looked. The highlighter also lasted really well on my face. It didn’t budge or wear away and it still looked as glowy and glittery as it did when I first applied it. For the shimmering body oil I was again really happy with the way that it looked and the way that it made my skin feel. This is definitely a product I would keep using along with all the other products from BaliBody.

  3. You look absolutely stunning here! It's great that the products wore well as I find that creamier products can often fade quickly. Rose Gold looks like such a pretty shade! x
