Hi Beauties and welcome to the new year with us,and yes it’s still Janu-worry. We still have approximately 8 months left of it hehehe.So to make it a bit easier on you, we have a little surprise for you down below.Today I will be reviewing the Ofra You Glow Girl Highlighter. If you guys have been following us for a while you will know I love a great highlighter. I was thoroughly impressed with the OfraxNikkieTutorials highlighter you can check out our video review here.
The You Glow Girl Highlighter is one of two highlighters brought to you by Ofra cosmetics made in collaboration with the ladies behind @dupethat.The You Glow Girl highlighter is a gorgeous pink highlighter with the perfect amount of shimmer to bring out that blushed pinky glow on your cheekbones!
When I swatched it on my arm it wasn’t very visible and hubby reckoned “jy is te lig girl” lol I had to explain to him that it’s a highlighter and definitely not meant to show, it’s meant to give a natural glow.In saying that it does have awesome colour pay off and is so nice and buttery.
This highlighter comes in a 10g pan available on the Ofra Cosmetics South Africa website for R380.00.Personally a 10g will last me a lifetime because of course I swop between highlighters. I have a sneaky suspicion that these Ofra highlighters will be stealing the show though
You Glow Girl is said to be a dupe for the Mac soft and gentle which goes for R460.I haven’t tried the soft and gentle but have seen swatches and they look very similar, however the Soft and Gentle is a lot more subtle. If you are like me and want to blind people with your highlight lol then The You Glow Girl highlighter is definitely the one for you.
I usually apply my highlighter with a fan brush to my cheekbones (above my blush) and bridge of my nose. You could also apply it to your cupid’s bow, brow bone and inner eye areas.Please comment below if you would like us to do a highlight technique tutorial video for you guys.
Price Point: 4/5
Considering that it is a high end product, the price is fair, it comes in cheaper than the Mac soft and gentle and if you purchase it you will be supporting our very own home grown bokkie Marilda Pool and helping her grow her business in true BSS Community style.
What’s more she is so awesome she has given us a 20% DISCOUNT CODE FOR YOU guys to use site wide (excludes already marked down products and cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount codes or promotions) all you have to do is enter BSS20 at check out so what are you waiting forehead on over and get your OFRA on!
I’m biased when it comes to this as I am a sucker for over the top packaging. The You Glow Girl Highlighter comes in a minimalist style packaging made of a clear clip plastic lid with the OFRA logo and the back is black plastic with product details, name and size etc. The packaging is very practical as highlighter is not something I carry around with me in my make up bag.
I am very happy with the results as it gives you that instant glow and will work well(show up even more) especially if you are wearing a matte foundation. The staying power of the glow is just wow,when I tested it,it stayed on for 9 hours!this includes, walking in the wind and hugs and kisses for my little ones,tiny hands all over my face,sweating coz we all now its as hot as a witches cauldron her in the cape.I only used one swipe so it wasn’t as bam in your face but it is definitely buildable.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for a highlighter that is going to make you glow to the heavens or in search of a rose gold/light pink highlighter. Have you used this product before, we would love for you to share your thoughts and experience with us in the comments section below.
Until Next Time
Peace and love
