PAC Baked Highlighters 09 & 02 Reviews, Photo & Swatches
I love Highlighters!! I am literally obsessed with them. I could easily be owning 14-15 of them!! And one of my favorites is The PAC Baked Highlighters. I bought them when I had visited their store in Mumbai. A lot of Make-up artists were buying the same and hence it caught my attention. They had a huge range, which surprised me as many brands available in India do not have more than 2-3 shades in highlighters while this brand had 11 shades. I was very impressed by the way this brand was progressing. Let’s see why this is among my favorites.
I bought 2 shades of it, the shades have no name just numbers. I bought the shade no.02 and 09.
Lets see what the website says about these
Create a radiant glow with this illuminating powder that highlights the skin with a sheer wash of shimmering color. Infused with Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate the skin. The long-lasting baked shimmering color can be applied wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation.
My experience with highlighters
These come in tin packaging which is extremely sturdy. This is the first time I am owning a product in such packaging. It also comes with a decent sized mirror, which is always a plus. The packaging is superb and very unique.
no.2 has a marble type look with 2 shades of champagne and gold. The base color is obviously champagne with hints of gold.
no.9 is a gorgeous pinkish golden highlighter, sort of like rose gold. It can work as a blush as well as a highlighter.
Both the shades are extremely pigmented. Please ensure to use a light hand, else one can easily look like a disco ball. Also, there is a slight kick back in the product, which you can already see in the images, but there is no fallout once the product comes on the brush.
How it worked for
I honestly loved the Pac Baked highlighter. There are some 11 shades and believe me guys, if I had that much money I would have bought each and every one of them. Every shade in this range was unique and gorgeous and extremely pigmented. My most favorite shade is No.2. It has a gorgeous champagne gold look and perfect for day as well as night look. The texture is extremely soft and easily blendable. The shade no. 9 is a party wear highlighter for me or days I want to look pinky. It gives a beautiful rose gold look, and it works as a blush as well as a highlighter. Both the highlighters last easily for 6-7hrs. And both the highlighters would suit Indian skin tones. But, one has to keep a light hand and build up as per requirement.
So summing up, things I love about this product
- Extremely pigmented
- Easily blend-able
- Easily available online
- Sturdy packaging
- Lasts for good 6-7hrs
Things I didn’t like
- Slight kickback
Would I recommend?
Yes absolutely!! Don’t think just buy it…
