Hey readers! We're going to be talking about one of the most raved highlighters amongst Korean beauty products today. Introducing the 3 Concept Eyes (3CE) Shimmer Stick. I've heard a lot about this highlighter and now I'm excited to try it for myself!
PS: Find my previous post on the 3CE "I'm Good" Pink Mascara which I gor from Fabulos Malaysia as well here!
The 3CE Shimmer Stick is a soft and easy to use stick highliighter. With its delicate and fine glitters, it will glam up your face by adding a soft, subtle glow. This highlighter is different from other highlighters in the market as it comes in a stick/tube form, labelled with 3CE's iconic black & white logo.
I got mine in the shade #Peach and this is available in #Pink too. I chose Peach because it is suitable to be applied to all 'high' parts of the face while #Pink would be more suitable for the cheeks only for a healthy glow. The tube does look kind of intimidating, what with being rounded and quite big, but it is actually just the right size & amount to apply on your face.
Check out how fine the glitters are! They are barely there but you can see that there is still a shine to it. The Shimmer Stick in light peach has tiny gold glitters. Gold and peach gives you a very luxurious and natural glow.
For your information, a highlighter is used to brighten up certain parts of your face, to make your features stand out. Remember when it comes to highlighting and contouring, LESS IS MORE. For me, I have typical Asian features and my nose & chin are pretty flat.
The areas that you want to stand out are your nose bridge, cheekbones and under your eyebrows. You can also highlight your chin and forehead area too. For me, I use the Shimmer Stick from the middle of my nose to the nose tip to "fake" a higher nose bridge. As for the cheekbones, highlighter and blusher goes well together to achieve a healthy glow while adding some highlighter with my fingers under my eyebrow gives it more precision and gives my eyes a more lifted effect.
No edit close up so you can see just how subtle the highlighter is but adds a more 3-dimensional effect to your face. I say less is more because you only want to achieve a subtle sheen, and not look like your face is oily.
Don't think you can really see the effects in photos but trust me, highlighting makes a big difference to your face, especially under flash photography! The 3CE Shimmer Stick is very convenient and simple to use as you don't require a brush, which makes touch-ups easier. No mess, no fuss. The only thing that might be considered a downside is that you have to wipe the Shimmer Stick after a few uses to keep it sanitary, per se.
