Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol. 2 Highlighting Palette

Skin Twinkle Vol. 2

Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol. 2 Highlighting Palette ($42.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a slim, rectangular compact that contains four highlighters from white gold to medium bronze. It is a follow-up to last spring’s Skin Twinkle palette, and it is definitely much improved, because it did not contain a “universal matte sand” shade for brightening the under eye (which was definitely not universal), and that particular shade actually had a more papery, dry texture that was strange. This year’s palette was more consistent, and all four shades are highlighters, so it’s a bit more fitting for more skin tones as a result. The brand also increased the value/amount in the palette to 0.70 oz., compared to last year’s which only contained 0.49 oz. (and they are the same price).

If you aren’t already inundated with highlighters, it’s a nice set. All four shades were very dupable, though, so for those who already have a few go-to highlighters, definitely check your stash for redundancy. For the most part, they’re soft, smooth, blendable, and definitely yield a glow (rather high-shine than “natural” based on their marketing) with good pigmentation and eight-hour wear.

Daylight

Daylight is a light, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color coverage paired with a smooth, blendable texture that was soft to the touch but did not feel powdery or dusty. This shade applied well, didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture, and lasted for eight hours on me.

Skylight

Skylight is a light gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was soft and blendable with some looseness in the pan, so it did sheer out a bit more on the skin as a result. It had good color payoff and sat well on the skin without emphasizing my pores or my skin’s natural texture while being highly reflective. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading.

Spotlight

Spotlight is a medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to medium) with a soft but dusty texture–a lot of the sparkle seemed to pull away from the base color. This shade looked more subdued as I blended it out compared to other shades. It started to fade after eight hours of wear.

Candlelight

Candlelight is a soft, golden copper with warmer, brown undertones and a metallic finish. The color payoff was great, while the texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firm or too soft in the pan. The highlighter blended out with ease and did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture. I noticed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.
