Rainbow Highlighter Alert - Dream Highlighter by Zhuco Cosmetics - Review & Swatches
I was so excited when I got this rainbow highlighter from Zhuco Cosmetics. Made in Malaysia, cruelty-free and OMG, it looked like a rainbow. They even named it Dream Highlighter but were they right? Did it just look pretty or did it actually worked?

About the product: (packaging/weight)
Dream Highlighter by Zhuco Cosmetics has a cardboard packaging with pressed pigment in the pattern of a rainbow. The compact is made like a book and stays closed with magnets built within the packaging. It is also not tested on animals and is made in Malaysia.

I loved the quote written inside the packaging as well, everytime you open the highlighter, it will give you a boost of energy!

Shade Description:
As you can see in the swatch photo; if used separately, the highlighter can give you violet, dull gold, yellow, light orange and a brighter orange shade but if you swirl your finger or brush in the whole pan, it will give you a gorgeous gold highlight.

Formula:
As mentioned earlier, the compact has packed powder pigment. It is one of those powders where when you swirl a brush, you get some fall out in the pan (if you know what I mean) so go pretty light with the brush or the fingers. I was a little scared when my brush dug up so much product and to be honest, the formula looked like it will go cakey but it is a pretty smooth powder.


Texture:
The product is powder based so it gives a powder look even though the powder feels wet. It can enhance imperfections and dryness on the skin especially if you go heavy on the application. If you have bumpy or dry spots on your skin, I will suggest going light with the application because that works like a charm

Finish:
Being a highlighter, the product gives a gorgeous highlight. It might sound strange but the more you blend the formula and sheer it out, the more glow you get. The glow this Dream Highlighter gives is gorgeous without any doubt but in my opinion, the best finish you get is not by using more product but in fact, a lot less than what you think you need.

A little product gives you a very soft glow but I wouldn't wear it for every day because it is still not natural enough for me. It is not a bad point for this highlighter but for everyday use, I am more of a champagne tone person.

Application/Removal:
Best use your finger to place the product on the skin and then blend with a fluffy but slight dense brush to get the best result and if you really want an out there glow. You can totally use it with a makeup brush but the brush packs less pigmented which works great if you want a more natural glow.

The product can be removed easily with pretty much any regular makeup remover or a wipe.

Longevity:
Now, this is my biggest concern because, in Malaysia, we have hot and humid weather 24/7 and highlight is usually the first thing that will go away unless you are sitting in air conditioning, doing nothing. This highlighter stays for long hours. I mean, it feels like it sticks to the skin really well with or without a foundation underneath.

It is also pretty water resistant which is always a plus for me.

Price Point:
For a price of MYR 69 (almost US$ 17.00), it is not a real budget-friendly product but if you look at the one-of-a-kind rainbow pattern and six individual shades, it is totally worth the money.


Final Thought:
It has been a pleasure trying the unique looking highlight and to be honest, I didn't even want to touch it because it looked so perfect when I first opened it but I had to try it. I loved testing it and I am so happy that I have this beautiful Dream Highlighter in my collection. I totally recommend this product if you are into makeup. This also can make a stunning and very unique gift.

I am satisfied with this product and all the claims that company made about the product, are completely true in my experience.

If I had to say one-liner about this highlighter, I would have called it 'a working piece of art'.

Cost & Availability:
Dream Highlighter by Zhuco Cosmetics comes with a price tag of MYR 69 and you can check out Zhuco Cosmetics' website or their official Instagram account to place an order. They also have a huge shade range for Matte Lipsticks which I reviewed a few days ago, you can check out the lip swatches here.
