Another high quality and affordable Makeup Brand I have recently discovered is, I Heart Makeup which is available to buy online and in Superdrug stores. There are so many beautiful products to choose from, which brings me to my current favourites; the mythical creature highlighters! Currently, I Heart Makeup have released three shades in the collection and I am fortunate enough to have two; the Dragon Heart and the Unicorn Heart.
As somebody who loves all things from magical fairy tales, these highlighters are an absolute dream to me and I think it’s an amazing idea! I really hope more are added to the collection, maybe a Phoenix or Pixie Heart? However, for now I will keep the focus to the highlighters that actually exist!
I’d been after the Unicorn Heart for quite a few weeks and it was regularly sold out in Superdrug. Thankfully, my mum was an absolute sweetheart, (as usual) and managed to get me one for my Birthday. The Unicorn Heart features a rainbow style highlight, with five different shades; lilac, blue, green, yellow and orange. A large spectrum of colours and I will warn you, if you’ve not used a rainbow highlighter before, you may feel a bit intimidated! However, fear not – each shade can be worn individually as well as all five being used together – there is always more than one option.
Furthermore, if rainbow colours aren’t your usual style, then the Dragon Heart may be your preferred choice! As soon as I discovered there was a Dragon Heart available, I had to add it to my collection – mostly because I wanted to feel like Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. The Dragon Heart also features five shades; red, pink, gold, nude an yellow. I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t usually go for the warmer tones as I don’t feel they necessarily suit my skin tone – but the packaging and concept won me over! Luckily, I do actually like this product and it has opened me up to trying other shades that in the past I probably would have ignored.
The best way to apply this product – and any highlighter for that matter, is by using a specific fan brush which is perfect for creating that much wanted glittery glow! At just £4.99/£5.00, the Heart Highlighter’s are incredibly affordable as well as great quality – I was very impressed and pleasantly surprised! It’s amazing how beautiful the packaging is for such a good price, it’s definitely something you want to keep on display at your vanity table.
For the photos in this review, I decided to wear both the Unicorn and Dragon’s Heart Highlighters at the same time, one side of my face with the Unicorn shade and the other with the Dragon Shade. As you can see there is only a subtle change and the difference is more noticeable in reality. The left side of my face I applied the Unicorn, which is a cool shade and the right shade I used the Dragon, which is a much warmer shade. Ultimately, I think you can see the glow and that’s what matters!
I truly love how each heart captures the vision of it’s mythical creature and it could be my favourite collectible makeup currently available! Since buying the Unicorn and Dragon, I’ve now discovered that a Mermaid’s Heart is also available by I Heart Makeup and as I’ve loved them for as long as I can remember, (The Little Mermaid and Splash, anyone?) I hope to one day make the duo a trio! Have you got any of the Heart Highlighters? If so, what’s your favourite and why?
