Beauty | I Heart Makeup Triple Baked Highlighter // Goddess of Love
When it came to purchasing I Heart Makeup's Goddess of Love Baked Highlighter, I was good. I was, in fact, so good it took months of my inner Charley telling me that "I had enough highlighters" and "It'll just be the same as all the rest" before I finally gave in and purchased it to push myself over the limit for free delivery on the Superdrug website - coincidentally at the same time as buying their Flawless Eyeshadow Palette. Doh. I really do need to get my collection all in one spot and then I'm doing a collection video, or three, might be more appropriate...
As you can tell from the swatch, it's a nicely pigmented gold-based highlighter that gives a healthy glow rather than all over shimmer. However - and I can't tell you how niggling this is - it smells very sharply of chemicals. Now, I'm not sure whether this is the glue or the packaging but it isn't the most pleasant smelling product I've ever had on my face - hello, they come in chocolate now! - and there does seem to be a small piece of fiber suck in the center of the product which is something I have heard another Youtuber complain of, with Makeup Revolution products but haven't yet experienced myself.
All in all it's a wonderful product for £4.99, and you do get a lot of product but I was still a little hesitant to part with my money at first, due to it's super cheap sister company Makeup Revolution with a slightly more expensive price tag.
What are your thoughts on the rise of the new budget beauty brands?
