Review: Fusion Beauty Ultraflesh Shinebox

Friday, February 07, 2014



Do you know that highlighting is as essential as contouring? With its light-reflective pigments, highlighters accentuate features, mimic a youthful and healthy glow, and add life to a look. It makes the best features of the face pop in a swipe. 

I never thought I would need more highlighters since I am pretty satisfied with the works of those that I currently have. But when I received from StrawberryNET.com to try Fusion Beauty Ultraflesh Shinebox, I couldn't say no. Who, in her good mind, would say no to a promising product like this anyway?


Shinebox -- Now every angle is your perfect angle. Day or night. Let no surface go unlit.


I don't know what happened but it took more than a month for this baby to reach my doorstep. But despite the long wait, I appreciate how it was packed neatly. It was placed in a box with a lot of fillers to make sure it would arrive safe and damage-free. 

The Ultraflesh Shinebox is a 5-piece set housed in a 5" x 1" kit that opens in layers. It includes 2 all-over highlighters, 2 all over shimmers and 1 all over enhancer.


My camera is not giving justice to the beauty of this all over enhancer. In actual, this powder appears bronzed with pink undertones. It has bits of shimmers that perfectly give glow to the skin. 


On the second layer are the 2 cream highlighters. One has yellow undertones while the other has pink. These two are not as pigmented as the all over enhancer, sad to say. But still, works good especially under flash photography where all those shimmers they have reflect light.

All Over Enhancer | Yellow Highlighter | Pink Highlighter
There are two shimmer pencils located on the bottom layer. The one is white dubbed as the secret shimmer. It works perfect as browbone and inner eye highlight. The other one is a shimmery nude pencil that I like using on the inner rims of my eyes. 



Nude Shimmer | Secret Shimmer
I LIKE that ...
  • all these 5 products are in one compact kit. No need to bring a lot of different highlighters because this kit has all the possible one needs to highlight a feature.
  • the all over enhancer looks perfect on my skin. It doesn't make my skin look oily like other highlighters do. It highlights just enough to make my features pop.
  • the shimmers these products have are not too noticeable but still perform well.
  • these highlighters stay put for about 3-4 hours.

I DON'T LIKE that ...
  •  there are no applicators included in the kit.
  • it has no mirror.
  • the 2 shimmer pencils are too soft that they have tendencies to break.

Will I repurchase?
Yes


 
On this photo, I used the all over enhancer on my cheekbones, the cream highlighter on the inner eye corner and on the bridge of my nose, and the white secret shimmer on my browbones and cupid's bow. I like how these products make my skin look healthy and glowing.


I don't know what happened but my face looks extra smooth on these photos. I hope it really looks that in natural. Nevertheless, I hope you see how good the Fusion Beauty Ultraflesh Shinebox works on me. 


Definitely, this kit is a keeper. This hasn't left my kit since I discovered how well it works on me! :) I might get addicted to highlighting! Hahaha! :)

What is your favorite highlighter? :) Please don't tell me it is Stabilo. Hahaha!
