Ladies and gentlemen, let’s talk about Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in ‘Ballerina’.
I find a lot of powder highlighters to be a tad too glittery and disco ball-esque; not this one. This offering imparts a rosy-golden hue that pairs indescribably well with a warm petal pink blush. Rather than imparting the aforementioned glittery-ness that so many other highlighters do, this offers more of a sheen to the skin when used sparingly but also layers really beautiful if your preference lies with a more liberal dose of highlight!
Courtesy of the rosy undertones, this also works really well as a kind of blush-topper if your blush of choice needs a bit of sprucing up in the glow department or looks a little flat. For a powder formulation, this is really quite smooth and creamy and so doesn’t sit on top of the skin which lends itself towards a more natural, ‘candlelight’ kinda glow. And for that reason, also, the longevity is pretty good and I find it to look the same for around 7-8 hours without any fading.
And although I’ve seen the packaging of these gelato highlighters come under scrutiny for being housed in this style of plastic casing, I actually quite like it for its lightweight feel and for travelling with.
I love this stuff. Plain and simple.
