Which Highlighter is Best? Between Kylie Kylighter & Master Chrome
A girl’s gotta glow. With so many highlighters on the market, it is difficult to know which one will give you the subtle sparkly glow that we all love, or if you’ll end up looking like a craft project gone wrong. Two of my favorites that I wanted to compare side-by-side are my Kylighter from Kylie Cosmetics and The Master Chrome by Face Studio. I’m using the shade of ‘Santorini’ in Kylie, but any of her Kylighter will be comparable; and the shade ‘molten gold,’ from Face Studio.For this experiment, I painted my face with makeup using: ·Master Chrome highlighter on the right side of my face · Kylie highlighter on the left side of my face Outlined in the photographs I’ve edited, it can be difficult to tell a huge difference from straight on. This is why I wanted to offer you guys the inside and outdoor lighting samples to compare the effects of natural light on the pigmentation.For each of these highlighters, you can see where I placed it because I drew circles. I placed one highlighter on each side of my face in these areas: · Brow bone (to widen eyes vertically) · Inside of eyes (to widen eyes horizontally) · Cheek bone (to bless you with cheek bones when you don’t have any!) · Cupid’s bow on lips (to draw the eye to the top of your lips) · Nose and tip (to make your nose look thinner and more pointed-upwards) Here’s what I found –Kylighter from Kylie Cosmetics is best for: · Highlighters that really POP · High pigmentation · Great for lighter shades (this one being whiter than the Master Chrome Shade) The Master Chrome by Face Studio is best for: · Highlighters that are more subtle · Lower pigmentation · Great for golden shades (warmer tones than the Kylighter) Compare the two sides and you will notice that the ‘Molten Gold,’ shade is living up to it’s name as a warmer tone; while the Kylighter offers a whiter effect.It’s difficult to compare these because I could purchase a gold tone from Kylie and a whiter tone from Face Studio, but my overall verdict is that the Kylighter is best. I decided this because: · The pigment was so rich · Brighter · Easier to see on my skin · Higher-quality product Overall, I would use both of these products. The Master Chrome is still great if I’m wearing warmer tones or want to enhance the gold of my eyes. The Kylighter matches cooler tones of white and enhances the white of my eyes to make them appear bigger.Look at the comparison pictures, which highlighter to you prefer?Happy face painting, beauties!
