Last Sunday, Marcia shared her beautiful Hikari products with you – the Jennifer Eyeshadow Palette, Iris Liquid Eyeliner, and Final Touch HD Powder. This week I have more Hikari to love! I tested the Jahren Eyeshadow Quad ($15), the Island Glow Blush ($15) and the Fireside Lip Crayon ($13).
Jahren Eyeshadow Quad has two satin shadows and two matte shadows. The names are Sage, Almond, Sable, and Magnetic. I know which one is Sage, but the others I am not sure about – so I will just go in order top to bottom clockwise! Top left is Sage, which is a gorgeous satin sage green. This is a beautiful shade that is especially nice with hazel eyes. I love it swept underneath bottom lashes – actually a trick Scott Barnes taught me many years ago with a similar shade of green he used to carry. Next to the green shade is a pretty satin taupe shade. Love this as a crease or lid shade. The bottom row has the matte shades, first a light cream that is a great brow shade. I also use it as an all over wash on days I am in a hurry. Next to it is a deep chocolate-brown that is perfect for the crease or as a liner.
The Hikari Island Glow Blush is a beautiful blush or bronzer. I wear it as a blush on my low maintenance days, but typically I use it more as a contour. I sweep it under my cheekbones then put a peachy/pink shade on the apples of my cheeks. In the FOD pic below I am wearing only Island Glow. It does give skin a nice glow and it’s tough to overdo this flattering peachy brown. The Hikari blushes come in nine different shades and I would love to try some of the other shades because I find the texture is great and it really wears well.
The Hikari Fireside Lip Crayon is really beautiful. I wasn’t sure I could pull off such a bright color, but I just love this! Fireside is a matte reddish pink that has some slip. I put this on and it lasts quite a while. Most reds turn pink on me, and this is no exception – it leans pink quickly. It might be different for you based on your body chemistry. I love the formula, the pigmentation, and the wear. The Lip Crayons come in ten different shades and I am totally up for trying more of these!
Marcia and I both are very impressed with this cruelty free and PETA certified line. We are looking forward to checking out more from Hikari, and we hope you are too. – Lisasamples/affiliate links
