Models Own is a UK brand that I must admit I hadn’t heard of until Marcia told me about it and I saw her pic she snapped at Ulta. Love the display…this just looks like tons of fun, doesn’t it??

I got to test out the Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand. I thought it looked too young for me. Swatched heavily, it looks quite shimmery and more like something my daughters and nieces would swoon over…but not like something that my middle-aged face would find very flattering.

I was in for a surprise because this sheers out to be more of a glow than a shimmer. It is possible to put on too much and get shimmery, but a few brush strokes and skin gets diffuse, glowy, and happy. Golden Sand smooths edges out better than an Instagram filter and instantly brightens dull, sallow skin. It also really lasts a long time. Most powder highlighters seem to stick around for about two or three hours on me, but this one doesn’t seem to fade – I can still detect it even after 8 hours of wear. I used to have a similar highlighter from Chanel that was LE and I remember almost crying when I ran out. Now I feel like I finally have my replacement!

I am guessing the other shade that is available, Peach Pearl, is just as gorgeous.  The pan is huge and price point is fantastic.  Next time you are wandering through Ulta, wander over to that Models Own display and definitely check out the Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder.  Golden Sand is beautiful, glowy fun.  – Lisa
