And, How did my glamour babes enjoy their 4th of July weekend?! I hope it went out with a bang! My mini Dose of Color 50% off haul continues with their baked highlighter in shade Pearl Dust ($28 originally, on sale for $14). This marvelous marbleized swirl of pink and white goodness had to be added to my purchase, this was too pretty to leave behind! Lord, if being labeled the crazy cat lady wasn't enough (I own 4 fur babies), I'll soon be known as the crazy highlighter lady! My love for highlighters are like potato chips, I can't just have one, lol! 


Dose of Colors carries 3 shades in total, Peach Glow (peach champagne), Sunkissed (bronzy gold), and of course Pearl Dust.

Pearl Dust is a soft pink that has an underlying white undertone, giving off an opalescent appearance with a frost finish. 

Now, if the words frost finish scare you as much as it scares me (terrible 80's makeup flashback, I could feel my eye twitching already, lol), don't let those two little words terrify you. Pearl Dust has more of a soft pearlized finish than anything else, and it is not over the top shimmery compared to most highlighters. 

Dose of Colors Baked highlighter has a lightweight, velvety smooth texture with a lot of pigmentation. 

Use the fingertips or take full advantage of some make brushes, Pearl Dust can be applied anywhere to the face and body (brow bones, cheekbones, Cupid's bow, decolletage, etc..) evenly, and effortlessly. Add as little or as much as you like to create the ultimate glow your heart desires with this buildable baked highlighter. I enjoy going for the subtle effect for my fair skin, it looks clean and natural. Thank you Tinkerbell for not vomiting pixie dust all over my face, much appreciated. Oh, and don't worry about kick back dust ladies and gents, this highlighter is baked to perfection, so there isn't any! Holla!

The color payoff wears beautifully, and works for every skin tone, Dose of Colors loves all complexions no matter how fair or deep. I can get a full 8 hour day out of this highlighter and I have no complaints not having to reapply my angelic glow, the longer the better I like to say. I actually love wearing this to the beach, I'm not much of a sun worshiper, but I don't mind blending in with the crowd once in a while, and this creates the perfect faux summer glow of my own. Peach glow will be the next highlighter on the birthday wish list along with some more Dose of Colors Matte Liquid Lipsticks, this was money well spent!
