Do you ever fill out surveys that ask about your hobbies and interests? Most of them don’t include beauty products but they really should since I can’t be alone in my
obsession interest. I’m a fan of cosmetics and all that goes with it and always have been. When a new company is introduced I want to know all about it.
That leads me to NUEST and the unique products they have created. Looking through their site makes me want to be young again and to have a counter or vanity full of their practical yet adorable products.
I have two of their Jelly Highlighters and have fallen for them. These aren’t the typical cream blushes or highlighters. Instead they are a water based gel that is quick drying. They say it “jiggles, shimmers, and leaves an impressive highlight on whatever area of skin they’re applied” They are fun to use and beautiful on skin.samples
Starting with the packaging I just couldn’t resist these.
Those cute little boxes hold one of 5 shades: Metallic Bronze (a brassy gold), Ruby Kiss (a swirl of peach and orange), Gold Rush (a rich yellow), Twinkle Star (soft white), and Pink Luster (iridescent soft pink). They can be used just about anywhere you want some magic to occur.
Nuest Jelly Highlighters are vegan and have a self-smoothing, memory-form technology that allows it to glide on and leave a concentrated pigment made with pearl and mica. I have both PINK LUSTER and RUBY KISS and they are great examples to show the textures that can be found.
Pink Luster has a looser finish than Ruby Kiss has. It’s a little more liquidy so I keep it away from too much light. This is pink at its best. It can be used anywhere – over your lipstick, on your decollete, on your cheekbones, on your eyes, or anywhere you want the iridescence to shine. It is so easy to use and reflects a soft pink.
Ruby Kiss is an especially unique shade. When I first open it I see bronze to it but looking at it more intently there’s a little red, a little peach and a little orange. It has some shimmer built in that is perfect for cheeks, eyes, and lips. Nuest even recommends adding some to your legs to add some extra glow.
These are easy to apply with your finger which is what I prefer to use. They sell a silicone sponge that they recommend but I’m happy with the control I get with my fingertip.
This is the season that highlighters really come into play so why not add some beautiful colors in a new texture to your day. The line is Vegan, Paraben-Free, Oil-Free & Cruelty-Free. They last, they are easy to apply, and they are mixable. They are practical and more important FUN! — Marcia

More from Nuest:
1. Want a Natural Look?
For a simple, natural look, moisturizer is your best friend. Apply your favorite and allow it to set in. Then, apply a small amount of Nuest Magical Jelly Highlighter to key areas such as under the brow bone or diagonal along the cheekbone. This will give you a dewy finish that catches the light in a subtle, yet natural way. Twinkle Star is best because it has just enough pigmentation which is perfect for a natural glow. Nuest jelly highlighters set like powder that will resist fading, rubbing off or moving.
2. Opting for Full Glam from Head to Toe?
Nuest offers many options. Their jelly highlighters may be mixed with your favorite moisturizer or foundation for an all over subtle glow. Next, you can add additional highlighter using their Silisponge or your fingers and begin dabbing the top of your cheek and brow bones. Accentuate your cupid’s bow, down the center of your nose and on the tip of your nose, plus, around your temples. For added glimmer, dab a small amount to your shoulders, upper chest area, arms and even your legs. For a softer shimmer you can mix a jelly highlighter with your favorite body moisturizer. Our Gold Rush is perfect for that royal glow.
3. Want Your Eyes to Look Larger?
Emphasizing the size of your eyes is easy! You want to apply highlighter just under your brow bone, but above the crease in your eyelid and then dab a small amount in the center of your eyelid. Gold Rush or Twinkle Star are a favorite eye opener.
4. Want your Face to Glow?
Apply a small dot of highlighter in the center of the apple of your cheek over blush and blend in a circular motion. Pink Luster or Ruby Kiss will add just the right hint of blushing glimmer.
5. Need to Re-Shape Your Nose?
Apply highlighter along the bridge of your nose and gently blend foundation or contouring cream a shade or two darker than your natural skin tone on the sides to make your nose appear to be slimmer or hide flaws. Twinkle Star is best since there is less color pigmentation which will not interfere with your contouring.
6. Want to Look Refreshed?
Just add just a pinch of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up an otherwise dark area. Then, apply a small amount in the center of your eyelid to add brightness. We recommend Gold Rush to wake up your look like the morning sun.
7. Want Your Cheekbones to Pop?
Apply highlighter on the cheek bone in a diagonal line from just beneath the center of your eye socket up towards your hairline and blend with a Silisponge. Pink Luster or Twinkle Star are the perfect shades to catch the light. The glimmer of the highlighter, will give your cheeks a pop and glistening glow.
8. Give You Lips for Days?
Applying a little bit of highlighter to your cupid’s bow using a concealer brush. Also, you can dab a small amount on your bottom lip right in the center or add a jelly highlighter over our favorite lip gloss or lipstick for a real statement. Try our Ruby Kiss to achieve those kiss-able lips.
9. Would You Like a Summer Glow for Face AND Body?
Without having to bake in the sun, simply add our Metallic Bronze to your foundation or moisturizer and apply on your face. Use our Silisponge to create that perfect blend. Feel free to add it to your body moisturizer for an all over summer glow.
10. What Areas Can You Highlight?
Highlighting can be done anywhere you would like to accentuate – besides the traditional cheeks, eyes and lips. You can go beyond and add jelly highlighter to your body lotions to add shimmer to our shoulders, legs and arms. You can even contour or add glisten to your chest when wearing a strapless or plunging neckline. Contouring your knees or legs are an option as well especially during the summer months. Simply dab a small amount to the center of your knees or a horizontal line down the front of your calves.
