I've been searching for THE highlighter for a long time. None of the ones I had at home were right. Or sparkly enough, or gold enough. Or glowy enough.
This is why when I saw Karina at the Melvita event, I had to ask her which highlighter she was wearing. It looked just what I was searching for.
She told me that she has a Dior highlighter but that she swears by (and normally wears) Terra Naturi's baked highlighter, which is supposedly similar. (Thank you, Karina!)
I was shocked. Because yes, I have heard they have some great stuff, but mostly because their plain packaging made me pass by the products everytime I was in Muller.
You see, I'm a sucker for packaging. The prettier, the better!
But first, who is Terra Naturi?
TERRA is the Latin for the earth, the land and the soil. NATURI was originally (develop, to be born) from the Latin, naturae 'derived. It shows that our earth - nature - can offer us anything that can help our skin to magical beauty - and this in a very natural way.TERRA NATURI stands for natural cosmetics whose natural recipes are more than 10 years constantly evolving and improving.

This means that all the strict criteria of the certification partner to be respected by the development of products up for sale.TERRA NATURI natural cosmetics developed by well-known, established brand manufacturers and mainly produced in Germany. We rely on the sometimes decades natural cosmetic experience these manufacturers.
It actually reads really great! I guess I should check out their products next time I'm in Muller.
Now to the product - it was all I was hoping for (swatch) in store so off it went with me.
Terra Naturi - Shimmer Powder in 01 Golden Highlight
Terra Naturi Body & Face Shimmer Powder conjures a glamorous delicately shimmering finish. The fine glitter particles boast incredible light reflections and make the skin glow. Skin compatibility dermatologists confirmed.
The packaging is plain, boring, but sturdy.
You get 7g or product for 3.99€ and I swear that if I wasn't directed to their line of products, I'd miss it. I totally would!!
I liked it when I swatched it, but sadly the glistening couldn't be caught on photos since it was a cloudy day.
And on my face.
I apologize in advance for the blotchy foundation, I was experimenting with some darker shades, haha.
I love it! I never realized that I'm not looking for a shimmering foundation, but for a glowing one. I wanted my face to glow or radiate with positive lights (the heck?!). Now I have it and I couldn't be happier!!
The staying power is great, except if I start sweating like a pig. Then I just can't tell apart if it's my oily face or the highlighter. Which is um, good, I guess?
The product is also vegan and has some ingredients from organic sources.
