HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #10: Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Peach Goddess REVIEW

Buy here for £25
(My highlighter series is a series of reviews where I look at the most blogged about highlighters and see if they are worth it or not! I'm trying to find the perfect highlighter by comparing formulas, colours, packaging and more. Make sure you have read from my first post where I reviewed the sleek solstice palette (linked below) to see what the main things I am looking for are. Remember: I post every Monday at 6pm GMT so check back to see if this series has been continued.)

When I reviewed the shade Princess Cut I said I would give Jeffree's highlighters another chance by buying one of his more popular shades. Peach Goddess was a shade that kept jumping out to me and when Beauty Bay offered the deal of buy one Jeffree Star Skin Frost and get his shade Dark Horse for free, I just couldn't resist. This review is going to be solely on Peach Goddess only because the shade Dark Horse is way too dark for my skin tone, although they are the same formula. If you're interested in my opinion on J.Star's packaging or the shades Princess Cut and Regina George please revisit this post as I discuss those in detail.

As mentioned, I bought this without really expecting too much. Yes J'Star's products are really hyped up but I'd had such a bad experience the last time that I thought I was throwing money away again. However I really cannot stress enough how completely different Peach Goddess and Princess Cut are in formula. Princess Cut was stiff, chunky and barely showed up whereas Peach Goddess is a beautiful, blinding, wet-look highlighter that is truly unique in colour. In pan it looks like every other peachy toned highlight but on the skin it transforms into something completely different. Before experiencing this I was a die-hard, ride or die fan of Becca's highlighters (Champagne Pop and Opal being the true stars) but now I believe that Becca has some stiff competition and J.Star is truly still in the game. Whilst Becca's formula is a lot smoother to the touch, J.Stars just effortlessly glides on the cheekbones to create an instantaneous wet-look finish.

Peach Goddess does not highlight many imperfections and lasts a lot longer than Becca's formula. While Becca's is more blinding (by a smidgen) J.Stars is buildable which means I can also wear it in the daytime. A true match made in heaven is Becca's Opal x Peach Goddess.

I am of medium-tan skin tone (NC35) and this is a perfect colour for me and I'm sure would suit darker skin tones too however I think it could potentially be a bit too dark for anyone who's extremely pale. This shade is also on the warmer side so suits skin tones with a lot of yellow/gold tones.

My only issue with this is due to the thin nature of the pans. As the pan is so thin I have found I've worked my way through this (or so it looks like anyway) way quicker than any other highlighter I've ever used. Yes the packaging looks huge (and thus a pain to store) but it isn't as big as you would think. I wish it was regular sized so a) I didn't feel like I was using it up so quick and b) so I could store it easier!

Overall I'm really pleased I picked this up and it's restored my faith in J.Stars brand and, although I'm yet to do so, I'm more than happy to purchase more of his Skin Frosts if they are of this formula. Peach Goddess is currently my favourite go-to highlighter and I use it every day!
