While strolling around the mall, I ended up checking out Burlington Coat Factory and their beauty section. I don’t normally go to this area but it seemed like they have some cool stuff that needs to be seen.
Now, during my digging with all the “never been seen before” goods, this Paris Hilton Strobing Kit popped up and yup! I took this beauty home without hesitation. This was the last kit around so I thought ehh.. why not? it only cost me $4.99.
But before we get into this kit, let me share with you a little bit about strobing. I Know.. I know.. I am not a beauty guru and most importantly, I am not a Contouring or Strobing Expert either. So, I found the coolest and easiest way to share this process with you.
Strobing Is the New Contouring.
What is strobing, you ask? It’s a fun term for highlighting, basically. Forget everything you learned about contouring (it was hard to master, anyway). Extra highlighting will give you a dewy, shimmery, more youthful glow. But because “dewy” can turn into “sweaty” super-quick, here are a few tips to keep you on the right track.
Here’s How to Do It Without Looking Like a Hot Mess.
1. Prep your skin with a hydrating moisturizer.
2. Use a highlighter shade that best matches your skin tone.
3. Only use the highlighter in spots that catch light
4. After you’ve applied the highlighter, blend it out with your fingers, a fan brush, or a damp makeup sponge.
5. If you have oily skin, opt for matte bronzer, blush, or other facial products, and only use a shimmery highlighter.
Now, on with this Paris Hilton Strobing Kit.
The packaging is presentable at first glance and that is probably the reason why it immediately caught my attention. It’s made out of cardboard (I believe) but in a classy way (perhaps Paris Hilton made sure that this won’t look cheap) and it’s actually pretty well made. I tried looking for a link on this product but I didn’t have any luck so let me walk you through this instead.
This kit comes with six pretty shades, it’s NOT highly pigmented but it’s not too bad either. For beginners and if you are still practicing the “strobing technique” then this is definitely a great starter kit.
This palette reminds me so much of the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette. I mean just visually inspired but 100% different in price point and it’s quality of course.
What I’m pleased about this $4.99 palette is that, they are wearable. The first shade (1) is a little bit powdery but very much tolerable (I can actually skip that shade if I want to). If you can see clearly on the swatches, you barely see some products around the strikes.. they are soft and smooth which applies easily on your skin.
Infact, I used shade “3 “as an eyeshadow, it’s a gold shade which I love and it blends really well too. While shade “2” is such a beautiful highlighter with a very subtle shimmer that is great for an everyday wear.
I can also see myself reaching for these three shades right here ↓, most especially the blushes “5” and “6“.
Shades 5 & 6 are surprisingly pigmented with such a gorgeous color that’s great for the spring season.
I was browsing for product reviews and link on this palette but I couldn’t find one but instead I found her Instagram link with this post. I guess this Paris Hilton Cosmetics Line is new? Is it cruelty-free? I hope so! 🙂
Would I recommend this Paris Hilton Strobing Kit? Yes! without a doubt. For the price of $4.99 and a decent quality? why not!
What do think? Have you heard about this palette too?
