A couple of weeks ago I bought Milk's Holographic Stick in Supernova. I was going to a pride party and wanted something to make my face pop, so I decided to shell out money to complete the look I wanted; little did I know it would change my life.
It comes in this cool, futuristic, two-part case, and honestly when it comes to makeup, packaging is everything. You first have to take it out of a caplike case, and from there, you can actually access your highlighter by twisting it up to the surface. It seems like a whole lot of work, but it's totally worth it.
Once you open the highlighter you can see that the color is super pigmented, so you need only a little bit to show up on your face, and since I'm very, very brown, it was an honest delight to know that I won't be running out of it anytime soon. With other highlighters that I've used, they either don't exactly match my skin tone or they aren't as bold as I would like them to be, which is absolutely BORING. Why have highlighters that won't, I don't know, HIGHLIGHT your face? With the Holographic Stick I can use my fingers to apply it onto my face and I'll automatically see the difference. I usually use it on my cheekbones, the middle of my nose, and right above my brow. If I'm feeling extra, I'll also put it on my Cupid's bow!
It gives off this amazing, unicornlike shimmer, so that with every angle you tilt your head it'll be a different hue, which is so multifaceted and cool. Plus, the stick smells amazing, and the scent doesn't irritate my skin at all. All in all, if you want a bold-ass highlighter that will look really good when you go out, or even one for an everyday glow, don't sleep on Milk's Holographic Stick! —Ignacia Fulcher
