Review Of Kay Beauty Highlighter – Champagne Fizz

Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz

I’m always excited when there’s a lot of hype around the drugstore highlighter. Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz is one of them. It is a champagne gold highlighter similar to The Balm MARY-LOU MANIZER, then why I do not try it? Kay Beauty always gives us mind-blowing makeup products, they are not only good in quality but packaging-wise also so pretty.

If you follow me for a while, you know my love for highlighters. But I have some preferences when it comes to powder highlighter. I love finely milled because this type of highlighter is buildable. You can get an everyday dewy-subtle glow to a super glam disco night look. Read the article to see how it worked for me…

I am really mesmerized by its packaging. It comes in a cardboard box and the colour of the box shows the product’s colour. All information is mentioned in the box. The highlighter container is secured by a sponge cover into the cardboard box. The actual product comes in a compact form with a beautiful rose gold metallic mirror-finished cap, which I absolutely love it.

This Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz has a mirror with it, but there is no applicator. For me, the packaging of the product is also very important along with the quality of the product. Personally, I love sturdy and opaque finished packaging. And the packaging of every Kay Beauty product is so luxurious.

Texture & Pigmentation:

The texture of Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz is super mild and soft. Just like buttery smooth. It does not have any chunky glitter particles and that’s why you do not see any fallout. It has a velvety, satiny finish, that makes it an HD highlighter.

The pigmentation of this highlighter is so beautiful. In one word, it is highly pigmented. Gives you an opaque finish in just one brush application. Another good thing is it does not settle down on the pores or skin texture. Also, it doesn’t look powdery.

If you use this illuminator/highlighter with a light hand you get a subtle dewy finished look. But if you use it with a heavy hand, then you can get super glam finished look. You use it as per your mood and preference.

Shade & Staying Power:

Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz is beautiful as well as also a gorgeous champagne gold highlighter. Also, you can say it is a muted gold highlighter. That is why it suits almost all Indian skin tones. It will be suitable not only with the porcelain fair, but also this champagne gold highlighter looks equally good on Indian whitish to darker skin tone.

The staying power of the Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz much better than other drugstore highlighters. I have dry to combination skin. And without fading and patchiness, this Kay Beauty HD highlighter lasts beautifully up to 8-9 hours. I’m pretty sure it also lasts a decent amount of time for oily skin beauties.

My Experience With Kay Beauty Highlighter Champagne Fizz:

The first thing that will attract me is its packaging! You can layer it up more than once to get more glow, yet it never looks chalky. It blends like a dream without any patchiness. Whatever your skin is, it blends evenly without settling into fine lines or unevenness. Also, If you apply it with a wet brush then you can get an opaque finished look. And it has no fragrance.

Basically, I wear this highlighter on my highest point of the face like cheekbone, inner corner of the eyes, chin, forehead, and brow bone. When I am in a hurry, I just dab my finger on it and directly apply it to the highest point of my face. But for the perfect glow, I prefer to use a fan brush or any small blending brush. Fan brush and powder highlighter are the best combinations for the perfect finish.

  2. Does not mention a proper ingredients list.
