Since this trend is becoming more and more popular in the beauty industry it seems only right to create a review post about it. Nowadays almost every product has a jelly form, from jelly shampoo to jelly face wash to jelly primers and blushers and eyeshadows to jelly highlighters. It all started with a $40 Farsáli Jelly Beam highlighter which got mentioned on almost every beauty guru’s Youtube channel. The trend immediately took off with drugstore brands such as Rimmel London creating more affordable versions like this Pink Jelly highlighter I’m about to review.
I brought this for a festival and it looked amazing and only got brighter and brighter throughout the day. I tested it out again a few days later just for a normal day at home to really see how well it works and what look I can create with it.
These Jelly highlighters are available in 3 different shades and are sold for £8.99 each. I brought mine in the shade ‘040 Shifty Shimmer’ which is a gorgeous sparkly pink. Although it’s a highlighter, I used it as a shimmery eyeshadow too and it didn’t at all irritate my eyes like a lot of products actually do. Some of my favorite highlighters are already liquid so I was already used to applying this type of formula so I knew how to apply it so that it wouldn’t get messy.
These images below show the highlighter in action on my eyelids and where I would normally place my highlighter. As you can see it isn’t the most pigmented but throughout the day I felt like it got more and more metallic and stiff especially on my eyes. As a highlighter it was as you could imagine more on the sparkly side and surprisingly there wasn’t that much of a trace of pink. Before applying it I expected it to be something along the lines of Rihanna’s Fenty highlighter that literally gives off the nicest pink, so I went for a look with a lot of pink blush and pink lipstick which I thought would compliment it well and it did.
On my eyes, this highlighter really did look incredible and especially for a festival. It was pretty hard to move it about once you had it on your lid and get it into a shape you actually liked so I used a damp brush and it glided on so smoothly it was literally as easy as blending an actual powdered eyeshadow.
After testing this it has made me really eager to start experimenting with more colorful highlighters instead of my normal bronzed tones. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative for the Fenty ‘Wattabrat’ highlight, I would definitely recommend this product.
