If you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel (subscribe here, if you like of course *smile*), then you know I live for a glow. The glow up has to be real, which is why I rotate between three highlighters. But I recently added two new releases to my collection, and I couldn’t be happier. To top it off, it’s a product that’s a collaboration with the most popular black YouTuber, Auntie Jackie. Her two highlighters with Artist Couture, La Bronze and La Peach, are nothing short of fabulous, and I am all the way here for them!
Although there are a lot of highlighters that work for WOC, I feel like Jackie put her all into making sure these worked well for everyone, but especially us melanin beauties. I mean, why wouldn’t she? Her voice of the lack of diversity in the beauty industry and community has been more than heard, so I would expect any product with her name on it to reflect nothing less and her fans, including myself, were not disappointed.
I purchased the entire bundle, which included both highlighters and the cosmetic pouch (which I loved simply for the color). The packaging was gorgeous, as rose gold has become a favorite color of mine, and the containers the product comes in are nice, too. The highlighters are powder, and the containers have the swivel piece that allows control of how much product is dispensed at once and closes off to ensure that no more is dispensed until desired. I love that feature because powder products are messy and regardless of the price point (and these were pretty pricey), I don’t really care to waste product.
I have to give it to Jackie. She came through with this collection. The glow these highlighters give is more than real. I, personally, like to glow up with La Bronze. I tried La Peach and I wasn’t as blown away with it as I was La Bronze. So, I use La Peach for my eyes and sometimes when I want to give my lips an extra glow for pics. But as some of you may know, I get excited and sometimes go overboard with highlighter on my face, so La Bronze does that to me. I can’t wait for it to get warm out so I can glow up the rest of my body with it.
I am so proud of Auntie Jackie and can’t wait to see what she has in store for us. I’m sure this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg for her. But for now, I’ll let these highlighters give me life until she releases her next venture. Do you have these beauties? If so, what are your thoughts? I’d love to know.
