Ultraflesh Shinebox - Review

Hello :)

Today I have a review of a product that was sent to me from StrawberyNET (click away:))

Packaging
I was very excited to recieve this product, because it looked very handy and also I had never heard of it before, but I wasn't expecting much of it.

It is called the Ultraflesh shinebox and as the name gives it away it is a highlighting kit.
It consists of a flesh colored powder highlighter, 2 cream highlighters that can be used as eyeshadow bases, and 2 highlighting pencil liners - one nude and the other one white.

Yes this palette can do this :)
After a month of trying this product out I finally made the time to write a post to do it justice, because I have fallen in love with this product.
I have literally been using it since the day I got it. It really took me by surprise.

The packaging of this product is brilliant because it is compact and it has like a slide/magnetic feel - it's easy to open but at the same time it feels secure. In my opinion it is quite perfect for travel.

Skin enhancer
The pigmentation of the powder highlighter/enhancer is amazing. Also I love that the shimmer is very fine and makes the glow even and the flesh color gives it a natural look.
It just illuminates the skin effortlessly.
I like to use it on the top of my cheekbones, on my nose, on my cupid's bow and my chin.
I also discovered that it looks good if I bronze my face and than apply this instead of blusher.
You can play around with it a lot.

Cream Highlighters
The cream highlighters have a great light formulation that allows them to glide over the skin without looking patchy or streaky, even if the skin has been already powdered.
Also they don't pull on your skin when you apply them. They are very easy and forgiving so don't worry.
I like to apply them with my fingers.

The first one has a gold shimmer in it and is more of a warm color that would soothe a warmer color blush or bronzer.
The second one is on the pinky side and for my skin this one suits me better and is of course my favorite out of the two. It has more of a colder shimmer to it.

As I previously said these two can be also used as bases for the eyelids. For me they creased, because I do have oily eyelids, but nevertheless it made the eye shadows look amazing.

The eye pencils: Nude and Secret shimmer
I left the last products and the cutest for the end. I am in love with these two pencils.

- They are retractable which makes it really easy since you don't have to sharpen them ever.
- They are small enough to fit in any makeup bag which makes it again very easy to carry them around and have them on easy acsess.

The first one is the nude shimmer which I loved using on my lids and in the inner corners. You can use it on the waterline as well but I prefered the Secret shimmer for the waterline.

Here is a picture of the swatches. You can really see how pale I am here.

Swatches - all in daylight 
And to conclude this post I would like to thank Strawberry NET for introducing me to this amazing product. You can find it on there website or just by clicking this link.
If you do decide to get it let me know what you think, but I bet you'll love it as much as I do.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
