Melt Cosmetics Fetish SexFoil Liquid Highlighter ($39.00 for 1.01 oz.) is a light-weight pink with delicate, heat undertones and flecks of lighter, cooler pink and gold sparkle all through. It was one of many shades that had each finer pearl and extra seen sparkle to it. The feel was extra fluid, like a watery-gel, nevertheless it was skinny and really spreadable, which was nice for all-over utility and dealing on the physique. The system dried down absolutely inside a number of seconds however wasn’t immovable, so one may finesse edges if wanted.
For utility to the face, the pump allotted an extreme quantity of product and was onerous to depress it lighter. I like to recommend making use of some to the again of your hand first, then utilizing a separate brush to swirl by the product, then apply to the face for extra focused highlighting. This produced a semi-sheer, buildable-level of protection that was controllable and didn’t need to be unfold out additional than desired to get a good layer.
It labored nicely utilized all-over, on naked pores and skin as a focused highlighter, and over basis because it wasn’t susceptible to lifting up my base merchandise. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours as a cheek highlighter, nevertheless it wasn’t as transfer-resistant as marketed.

The system is meant to be “an emulsion of liquid pearl pigments that illuminate, hydrate, and add radiant dimension.” The system is meant for use as a standalone highlighter on the face and the physique, nevertheless it may also be blended in with basis. They suggest utilizing a shade deeper than one’s pure pores and skin tone for a liquid bronzing impact. It’s purported to have “gentle” protection and provides a “pure glow” when worn alone.
It is a very fluid system, nearly watery, however there was extra of a gel-like really feel after I performed with it and unfold it out over my arm. I’ve discovered that regardless of being somewhat runny, it has a sooner dry-down than I might have anticipated and utilized nicely on naked pores and skin, over basis, or blended in with basis.
A couple of shades had extra noticeable sparkle, and in contrast to lots of liquid highlighters available on the market, these had extra depth within the shade spectrum, so some shades may fit higher for multi-tasking (e.g. alone, blended in, and so forth.) than others relying on one’s pores and skin tone. Normally, the shades produced a smoother, pearlescent sheen that wasn’t as intense because the product identify would possibly recommend however actually might be constructed up and made foil-like.
They sheered out readily and have been rather a lot much less intense/opaque in comparison with the model’s swatches (which have been notably irritating since they took a full pump of product and did not even let it dry!). The applicator took some getting used to however nearly at all times pumped out an excessive amount of product to be used on the face.
It had extra semi-sheer, buildable protection, although it actually trusted how a lot product was utilized. For higher-coverage on the face, it was finest utilized onto the again of your hand, after which swirled a number of instances on an artificial brush, then utilized. This gave the system a while to “dry” whereas being picked up on the comb, which translated to larger protection on my face that did not unfold out as a lot.
They wore nicely for eight to 9 hours on my cheeks. It was purported to be transfer-resistant, which it type of was–it did not instantly transfer or migrate, and most of it was left behind, however a light-weight faucet of of my fingertip towards the product revealed pearl on my fingertip (no rubbing was performed!). There wasn’t a noticeable scent.
