Best on budget drugstore highlighter?

Catrice Glow highlighter review
Honestly, nothing surprises me more than the fact that there are not many drugstore brands that offer highlighters, because right now they are the hottest product in the makeup world. I, myself, am a huge highlighter, illuminizer lover and they certainly have become a permanent part of my beauty routine, especially in summer.
Thanks to the hot weather in Latvia a lot of us have already had the chance to catch the rays of sun and gain the sun kissed skin effect. I think that highlighters look the best in summer, especially if used together with a peachy/rosy blush and a bronzer. It is such a gorgeous combination! My all time highlighter favorite is the dearly beloved Champagne Pop which was created in a collaboration with Youtube beauty guru Jaclyn Hill and brand Becca. But as this highlighter might not be loved by your wallet as it is kind of expensive, well at least for me, it's good that we have alternatives, right? One of the best alternatives that I have found recently is the Catrice Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder. And as we already know, the prices for Catrice products are very democratic.

Mani tiešām izbrīna tas, ka tikai neliela daļa no kosmētikas zīmoliem, kuri ir pieejami, piemēram, tādos veikalos kā Drogas, ir nākuši klajā ar sejas izgaismotājiem. Šobrīd skaistumkopšanas pasaulē valda izgaismotāju pats augstākais popularitātes vilnis. Man pašai izgaismotāji ir vieni no mīļākajiem kosmētikas produktiem, kuru izmantoju savā ikdienas skaistumkopšanas rituālā, it īpaši vasarā. Pateicoties skaistajam, siltajam un saulainajam laikam, daudzi no mums jau ir paspējuši noķert saules starus un iegūt skaisto, “saules noskūpstīto” ādas efektu. Un tieši uz šādas ādas izgaismotāji izskatās vislabāk, it sevišķi, ja tiek izmantota persiku/rozīga sārtuma + bronzera kombinācija. Izskatās fantastiski J
Mans izgaismotāja favorīts vēl joprojām, neapšaubāmi ir iemīļotais Champagne Pop, kuru ir radījusi Youtube guru Jaclyn Hill un uzņēmums Becca. Bet tā kā šis izgaismotājs Tavam maciņam varētu arī nepatikt, jo tas ir salīdzinoši dārgs un arī tas, ka Becca kosmētiku, diemžēl, nav iespējams iegādāties Latvijā, tad ir jāmeklē alternatīvas, vai ne? Viena no labākajām un veiksmīgākajām alternatīvām, kuru es esmu atradusi ir jaunums no Catrice Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder izgaismotājs. Catrice zīmola kosmētiku ir iespējams iegādāties veikalos Drogas par ļoti pieņemamām cenām.
Catrice Glow highlighter review
This highlighter is certainly one of the coolest makeup products I have found this spring! Though, I must add that, of course, the quality might not be as great as the Becca one, but for the price which is three times cheaper, I can't find a reason to complain.
Sadly, this highlighter is available only in one shade - 010 Light Infusion, which is definitely a beautiful shade and has more of cool/silver undertones with a pinch of peachy colour. As of right now, thanks to the Canary islands sun and the few sunny days here in Latvia, my skin is tan, therefore, this colour combination doesn't really work for me. Recently, I've been using the already mentioned Champagne Pop, because it has more of peachy/golden undertones which look on a tan skin better. Therefore, if your skin type/colour is more on the fair side, I believe that this highlighter will look beautiful on you no matter what season it is. I believe that I'll make the most of it in the winter when my skin will be back to the fair/white side. :)

Šis izgaismotājs noteikti bija mans pavasara atklājums. Piebildīšu, ka nav gluži salīdzināms ar Becca izgaismotāju kvalitātes ziņās, bet tik un tā, manuprāt, lieliski spēj piešķirt ādai skaistu, dabisku spīdumu. Kā arī, atceraties, to ka cenas ziņā Catrice izgaismotājs ir trīsreiz lētāks un par šo summu grēks pat sūdzēties J
Diemžēl uz doto brīdi Catrice izgaismotājs ir pieejams tikai vienā tonī 010 Light Infusion, kas ir skaists tonis ar persiku nokrāsas piesitienu, bet kuram vairāk cauri sitās tieši vēsi baltais/sudraba tonis. Pateicoties, Kanāriju saulei un pēdējām saulainajām dienām tepat Latvijā mana sejas āda ir nosauļojusies un šis vēsais tonis uz doto brīdi man tik labi nepiestāv. Pašlaik tieši visvairāk lietoju jau manis pieminēto Champagne Pop, kuram ir persiku/zelta nokrāsa, kas nosauļotai ādai piestāv labāk. Respektīvi, ja Tu esi gaišā ādas tipa īpašniece, tad izgaismotājs uz Tavas ādas izskatīsies lieliski neatkarīgi no gada laika. Domāju, ka pati šo izgaismotāju lietošu tieši ziemas mēnešos, kad mana āda atgriežas pie bālās nokrāsas J

Have you already tried this highlighter? Any thoughts? Which highlighter you are currently using? / Vai esi jau mēģinājusi Catrice izgaismotāju? Kādas ir Tavas domas par to? Kādu zīmola izgaismotāju Tu lieto?

  6. I was thinking the sam thing today when I was looking for a highlighter, I could only find brands like NARS and MAC! I ended up buying one from Sleek which looks really good, but if I end up not liking it I'll give this a try! x

    1. Right? It is so weird! If I had a drugstore brand I would fill it with gazillion types of highlighters :D
      I have been eyeing the Sleek one, therefore, I would surely love to know how you like yours!

  7. I actually don't really like using bronzer to contour all that much when a highlighter will do! Great review! I'll keep an eye out for this product! :]
