When Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighter in Gold Rush and Twinkle Star came across my review desk I did two things: jumped for joy at it’s gorgeousness and immediately open it up to feel it and try it on my skin.
The results of this unique jelly product? Fabulousness! I’m wearing the gorgeous holo Twinkle Star on my cheekbones in this photo.
It’s been established that I’m a major highlighting fan and will never pass up the chance to try out a new strobing product (are we in the beauty community still claiming it as strobing?). Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighter comes in 5 shades (Pink Luster, Metallic Bronze, Gold Rush, Ruby Kiss, Twinkle Star) and has an unique bouncy, gel texture.
Before I get into the details about these highlighters, let’s talk about their super cute packaging. Aren’t these mini purses the cutest? It’s a cute touch. I’ve never heard of Nuest Cosmetics before, but have since discovered that they carry some extremely cute beauty products and accessories on their website, including tulip-shaped makeup brushes. Nuest Magical jelly Highlighters are Vegan, Paraben-Free, Oil-Free & Cruelty-Free.
I received Gold Rush and Twinkle Star to review. The texture is very light, the water-based gels are easy to blend, and they dry down quickly. What’s nice about the Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighter is that they’re multi-functional and you can use them on your cheekbones, down the center of your nose, on your eyelids, and even on top of your lip color.
I love that these highlighters stay put after they’ve been applied. You can use a plastic sponge to apply, a firm makeup brush, or your the pads of your ring finger, which is my applicator of choice. For this look I used Twinkle Star on my cheekbones and nose and Gold Rush right smack dab in the middle of my eyelid.
My Final Thoughts: Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighter is one of the most interesting highlighting products I’ve ever used. I love that it’s easy to work with and creates a lovely, long-wearing glow. The downfall is the price tag, which I feel could go down a couple of notches.
