The Tarte Shimmering Light Powder Highlighters have launched as the latest highlighter formula from Tarte, and they’ve launched alongside the new Tarte Tartelette Baby Bloom Amazonian Clay Palette.
“tarte’s Shimmering Light is a skin-perfecting, pressed highlighter for a lit-from-within glow!“
With a name like “Shimmering Light”, it looks like Tarte might be trying to tap into the Becca Shimmering Light Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter popularity, especially now Becca is no more. Although you can now buy the Becca powder highlighters under the Smashbox brand from now on.
The Tarte Shimmering Light Powder Highlighters are available in two different shades, which Tarte describe as being universal, although they don’t look too universal. There’s Champagne Glow, which is a warm toned medium gold, and there’s Rose Gold Glow, which is a cool toned rose gold hue.
Both shades are housed within beautiful chrome compacts, with a dimpled effect on the lids. The compacts do look very pretty, and the pans feature a geometric design too. It’s nice to see Tarte launch a face powder without Amazonian Clay within the name, as their launches can be very repetitive.
- Microfine 3D pearls & pigments reflect pure light to add depth & dimension, while diffusing imperfections
- Butter-soft formula glides on smooth
- Buildable glow melts into skin for seamless blending that doesn’t look glittery
- 2 universal shades for a warm or cool glow
The two shades of the Tarte Shimmering Light Powder Highlighters look pretty, and I like that they claim not to look glittery. All of the Tarte highlighters I’ve tried have been glittery, so it’s nice to see them do a powder highlighter which doesn’t look glittery, for those of us that don’t want to resemble a disco ball. If you’d like to check out the two new Tarte highlighters, they’re available right now.
