I’ve been waiting for the Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter. Even more, it recently launched – right in time for summer! In fact, one of your most important summer makeup products is a liquid highlighter. One reason is, the look we want during the summer is the non-touring trend. In other words, non-touring, soft, bright, glowing skin, replaces heavy winter makeup and contoured looks. Instead of your contour, switch to a liquid highlighter. The reason is, a liquid highlighter is easier to blend. Additionally, it is less concentrated than powders and creams. Above all, it gives you a dewy look.
The Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter can do other things besides being a highlighter. The reason is, the formula delivers the immediate effect of a highlighter. Furthermore, the Elevated Glow Highlighter formula includes skincare, which gives you long-term results over time. Keep Reading to find out more about the new Lisa Eldridge Liquid Highlighter.
You can find the Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter on the Lisa Eldridge Website. Also, the Elevated Glow Highlighter ( 13 mL / o.43 fl. oz. ) costs $38 US.
Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter Packaging
To begin, the highlighter comes packaged in a white outer box. Lisa’s L and lips logo is on the front in gold. Also, the writing on the front of the box is also gold. Then, the writing on the back of the box, including the ingredient list, is in black.
Next, the liquid highlighter comes in a frosted glass bottle, that is fully recyclable. The bottle’s lid is a matte gold shade. Unscrew the lid, and the lid becomes the handle to a fat doe-foot applicator. Even more, the doe-foot applicator controls how much product you need. And, you only need a drop!
The Formula For The Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter
To start, the Elevated Glow Highlighter is a liquid highlight/skincare hybrid. Therefore, it is a multi-tasker. In other words, the highlighter isn’t just a highlighter. Rather, the highlighter can do other things. One key ingredient, Film Excel, is a second-skin, natural biopolymer. First, it forms a protective mesh on the skin. Then, the mesh gives your skin a tightening lifting effect.
Also important, when you apply the Elevated Glow Highlighter, let it sit for about three minutes. The reason is, it takes three minutes for the mesh to set, and do its job. Two other ingredients, are Tamarind Seed, and Oat Kernel Extract. One way Tamarind Seed works to elasticise your skin. In this way, it keeps your skin plump and hydrated. Next, Oat Kernel Extract,an anti-inflammatory, and it soothes your skin.
Last, Glycerin, still the gold standard, holds moisture inside of your skin.
Finally, the formula smoothes and blurs imperfections, such as fine dry lines. Also, the formula is buildable. Even more, the formula includes multi colored pearls, in pinks, lavenders, and greens. As a result, these multi colored pearls work to give you a more natural look.
The Shades Of The Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter
First of all, there are four Elevated Glow Highlighters in the Lisa Eldridge Spring/Summer 2021 Collection. I purchased three of the four shades. The shade I didn’t purchase is Celestial Fire, a rich bronze shade, has a golden effect on the skin. This shade is perfect for deeper skin tones.
The shades I purchased are Crystal Nebula, Cosmic Rose, and Solar Light. First, Crystal Nebula, a light champagne shade with a neutral golden base shade, has a pearlized finish. Additionally, Crystal Nebula is for fair to light complexions. Next, Cosmic Rose, a light rose -gold shade with a rosy base shade, has a pearlized finish. Cosmic Rose looks good on light and medium skin tones. Last, Solar Light, a golden apricot shade, with a rosy pinkish base, has a pearlized finish. Solar Light is great for medium skin tones.
How To Apply The Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter
Finally, you can wear the Elevated Glow Highlighter over your foundation, under your foundation, or without foundation. Without foundation, apply the highlighter on top of your skincare. Also important, you only need a small amount. Even more, let the highlighter sit for three minutes. The reason is, the biopolymer needs three minutes to set. You can apply on top of your cheekbones. Blend and pat with your fingers. Also, highlight your half halo. What is a half halo? It is the section of your face from the brow bone to the cheek bone. Last, put some on the inner corners of your eyes. Also, you can put it on your brow bones, down the center of your nose, and on your Cupid’s bow.
