The Bali Body Highlighter Sticks | AD

Shop it now: Bali Body Highlighter Stick (3 shades)
Hey lovelies!

Ahh this is such an exciting post for me and I can hardly contain my happiness! I have been following Bali Body for a while now and whilst I can't claim to be a self-tan connoisseur, I am a beauty fanatic so you know that the moment I saw Bali Body in my inbox presenting me with the chance to try out the first product in their cosmetic range, I couldn't help but jump at the chance!

The Bali Body Highlighter Stick is Vegan, cruelty free, universally flattering AND comes in three equally gorgeous shades: Sunkissed (bronze tones), Rose Gold (rosy tones) and Moonlit (champagne tones). The pigment on these highlighters is unreal and the fact that the product is buildable makes it so easy to go from a dewy, fresh-faced look to high-shine nightime glam - all bases are covered for sure!

Now I must admit that when I first tried this product, I was a little scared. I'm someone who dabbles more with powder products compared to cream/liquid products so having to use a liquid highlighter? Well, let's just say I was out of my depth!

Thankfully though, due to the consistency and each universal shade, I was able to quickly pick up the technique and find a way to apply it that suited me. I think that's what I love most about it to be honest; it serves its purpose without causing too much hassle or leaving you wanting to rub it off instantly - definitely a bonus in my eyes after some of the other liquid highlighters I've tried!

Where I applied 'Rose Gold' & 'Moonlit':
  • High points of my cheeks
  • Bridge of my nose
  • Tip of my nose (my favourite)
  • Cupid's bow
  • Brown bone
  • Inner corners of my eyes
  • Temples
  • Collar bone

With a little trial and error, I was able to figure out what beauty tools worked best to give me a seamless finish, no harsh streaks and maximum glow! A sculpting brush with soft bristles was my best friend especially for applying the product on my cheekbones because not only did it blend it to perfection but it allowed me to add just the right amount of highlighter without having to cake it on.

Let's be honest, the last thing you want is a beauty tool that takes away the main purpose of a product but I didn't experience this one single bit! If you're ever in doubt about what to apply it with, use your fingertips so that the product is warmed up and melts into your skin for that effortless glow from within.

Be sure to leave me a comment down below letting me know which shade is your favourite, will you be trying them out? Follow the links to shop the full cosmetic range and get your hands on these beautiful highlighters, you won't regret it!

Stay tuned for my next blog post where I showcase a look I created using all three of these stunning shades. You won't want to miss it since I do my best to capture that flawless Bali Body Babe glow that every girl loves, I'll see you very soon!

Hey lovelies!

A blog post had not surfaced for the new year so I thought: "what would be the best way to ease myself into it all?" and of course the answer was to share twenty of my favourite songs from this season with you.

Thankfully due to Tik Tok and Shazam, the songs that I've listed for you down below make me look so versatile and I guess that it's this kind of variety in my life that always makes listening to music so fun. I've found that it's this constant yet exciting journey of finding songs that touch the soul in whatever way they please that gives me the most happiness. The best songs usually attach themselves to my many moods and prey on my emotions so much so that they embed themselves in my brain...I let them to be fair haha!
