Anastasia Hot Sand Stick HighlighterAnastasia Hot Sand Stick Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium copper with heat, extra bronzy undertones and lighter, golden shimmer that gave it a comfortable sheen. It had semi-opaque colour payoff in a single layer, so I had to make use of a lighter hand to attain extra buildable protection because it was presupposed to have.
The feel was light-weight, emollient initially nevertheless it felt extra powder-like as quickly because it got here into contact with my pores and skin, and I felt like I needed to work in a short time to be able to guarantee a blended layer of product because it wasn’t as maneuverable after it dried down. It was best to work with over naked pores and skin, and after I tried utilizing it on high of basis, I needed to apply it with fingertips (reasonably than a brush, which is one advisable technique, per the model–it even comes with a brush on one finish) as a brush was apt to push round product and create some lifting/patchiness. This shade stayed on nicely for seven and a half hours earlier than fading noticeably.

The components is meant to have a “customizable glow” with an “ultra-smooth” consistency that “melts effortlessly” on pores and skin. The protection was described as “buildable,” which was true–most shades had been extra medium to semi-opaque, however the extra emollient nature of the product made it inclined to sheer out throughout apply, so that they had been extra buildable as soon as I began making use of them to my face.
The consistency was frivolously emollient, skinny, and had good glide, nevertheless it was fast to dry down and set to a powder-like end. It appeared a bit of drier and wasn’t as flattering to my normal-to-dry pores and skin as different cream-to-powder formulation, so it could be extra appropriate for oilier pores and skin varieties. I did not have any points with the product lifting up basis, so it labored advantageous over naked pores and skin in addition to on high of complexion products–as lengthy as I used my fingertips to use and mix out.
Due to the short dry down time, I discovered fingertips to be essentially the most versatile and foolproof for making use of the product. Utilizing a brush was the place the applying was extra vulnerable to occurring erratically, bunching up, or lifting up base merchandise. The components lasted between seven and eight hours on me.
