Soften Cosmetics Fetish SexFoil Liquid Highlighter ($39.00 for 1.01 oz.) is a light-weight pink with refined, 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 method dried down absolutely inside a number of seconds however wasn’t immovable, so one might finesse edges if wanted.
For utility to the face, the pump distributed an extreme quantity of product and was arduous 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 means of 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 must be unfold out additional than desired to get a fair layer.
It labored effectively 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 effectively for eight and a half hours as a cheek highlighter, nevertheless it wasn’t as transfer-resistant as marketed.

They suggest utilizing a shade deeper than one’s pure pores and skin tone for a liquid bronzing impact. It’s alleged to have “gentle” protection and provides a “pure glow” when worn alone.
It is a very fluid method, 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 quite runny, it has a quicker dry-down than I’d have anticipated and utilized effectively on naked pores and skin, over basis, or combined in with basis.
A number of shades had extra noticeable sparkle, and in contrast to plenty of liquid highlighters available on the market, these had extra depth within the shade spectrum, so some shades may go higher for multi-tasking (e.g. alone, combined in, and so on.) than others relying on one’s pores and skin tone. On the whole, the shades produced a smoother, pearlescent sheen that wasn’t as intense because the product title would possibly counsel however definitely could possibly be constructed up and made foil-like.
They sheered out readily and have been loads 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 all the time pumped out an excessive amount of product to be used on the face.
It had extra semi-sheer, buildable protection, although it definitely trusted how a lot product was utilized. For higher-coverage on the face, it was greatest utilized onto the again of your hand, after which swirled a number of occasions on an artificial brush, then utilized. This gave the method a while to “dry” whereas being picked up on the comb, which translated to increased protection on my face that did not unfold out as a lot.
They wore effectively for eight to 9 hours on my cheeks. It was alleged 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 in opposition to the product revealed pearl on my fingertip (no rubbing was executed!). There wasn’t a noticeable scent.
