My current makeup and beauty product setup goes something like this: On my vanity, I have my current staples, favorite products, new goodies, or products I’m testing. Think favorite primer, current foundation, a few staple concealers, winter lipsticks, and other products to create my daily go to look. In my makeup drawer is organized chaos of everything else. Every now and then–read more then than now–I go through said chaos and give away, get rid of, or my personal favorite, rediscover old products. And I don’t mean old in the sense like expired. Girl that’s what the “get rid of” part is for. But I mean those things that I’ve tossed in there in lieu of making more room for new things, things tested but maybe weren’t too exciting, or things I just straight up forgot about. These things happen…right? I recently had some time to do one of those clean out sessions and I came across the Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick in Magnetic. Queens. I think I may have just discovered illuminating brown girl gold. Why haven’t I been using this all my life?
The Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick is one of those multi lip/cheek products but you can also use it for your eyes. I’ve never really got into those kind products so I think that’s what made me overlook it the first time around. It’s a beautiful golden color that obviously would look gorg on cheeks and eyes but lips? Not so much for me. Anyway, I’m not sure what made me swipe it along my cheekbone but listen. I had a Girl Whet Yaaaaasss moment when I saw how pretty it was and realized it is the most perfect highlight for me.
I’ve learned through multiple failed highlighters and illuminators that golden and/or bronze tones work best for my skin. I think that’s why the Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick in Magnetic pops so much against my dark brown tone. It’s a light bronzey gold that, if we’re being honest here, can be a bit much if you don’t blend it out enough. So blend girl. Blend. It’s a cream consistency which I like because powder can get messy sometimes, and works best when I apply it in one swipe and blend out with my fingertips.
The Mineral Fusion 3-in-1 Color Stick in Magnetic has officially made it out of the drawer and onto my vanity. New favorite highlight material? I think so.
What highlighters are you rocking right now? Anything special? Let me know!
Stay Blessed Beautiful!
