So this review is for a product I’ve had for a few months now but I’ve never wrote about it for some reason. I actually won this as part of a giveaway from one of the amazing girls on IG check out her page here.
I’ve been playing with the Angel Cake divine glow enhancing palette by Trifle Cosmetics and this is a highlighter palette with 4 shades. I haven’t found a stockist of Trifle in the UK but their products have appeared in Glossy Box subscriptions. You can purchase this from their website and this palette retails for $21 (see here). I think you can also get this brand from Amazon as well.
The palette comes in an outer box that contains the brand and palette names on the front and all the product information on the back and sides. This outer box is so cute and completely fits with the brand. The packaging on the palette itself is made with sturdy plastic with a clasped lid that does stay securely closed. There is also a huge mirror on the inner lid. This palette is 100% cruelty free, vegan and hypoallergenic and contains no mineral oil, parabens, gluten or phthalates.
The Angel Cake palette contains 4 dessert inspired shades. If you don’t like coloured highlighters then this isn’t the palette for you I’m afraid. As you can tell from the pictures, I absolutely adore this product, it is well used. The 4 shades are Lime Jelly (green), Syrup Sponge (orange), Bonbon (pink) and Blueberry Muffin (purple). The palette smells divine, like any dessert does.
All 4 shades have an amazing shine to them, been super reflective but not glittery. You can also see the colour of the highlighter when the light hits it but you can see this colour without the light. The formula is described as being very creamy and for three of these shades I agree with this description. It might just be my palette but I don’t like the formula of the pink shade called Bonbon. Rather than be lovely and creamy, Bonbon has kind of solidified and gained a skin on top which means that it can’t really be used. It really is a shame as the tiny bit I could try for the swatches had amazing pigment.
The other 3 shades are buildable depending on the amount of colour you want for your highlight. They also blend really easily on the skin without disturbing the base too much. Once blended onto the skin, this highlighter loses its tackiness and feels soft on the skin. Having tried all of these shades, I have had no skin issues at all but I don’t have sensitive skin so be sure to do a patch test before trying this on your face.
I’ve also tried out these highlighters as eye-shadow and lipstick toppers to give an extra highlighted glow. They work pretty well as both although you do need to be careful around the crease. These work great in the inner corners of the eyes due to the shine as well as working great on the cupids bow, cheeks and collarbone.
For me, I am totally in love with the shade Blueberry Muffin. This one has an underlying hint of blue especially when this has been built up on the skin. It’s not an everyday highlighter, that’s for sure, but for nights out this shade is gorgeous.
Overall I am happy with this highlighter palette from Trifle Cosmetics. Although I didn’t pay for this palette, I would be more than happy with this for the retail price. The packaging is sturdy and the palette is easily transportable with a good sized mirror. I’m not sure what’s going on with the formula Bonbon but for me that’s the only disappointing thing about this product (I’m also hoping that this is just a flaw with my palette). Even with that, all the shades have amazing pigment and shine without been glittery.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope that you have enjoyed this review and that you will join me for more in the future. Don’t forget to get in touch if you have any comments, critiques or concerns. Equally if you have any products you’d like to see let me know and I will try my best. The image below is the only one I have that really shows off the purple shade. Ignore the state of me, it was Halloween and I was very drunk. I do not condone this.
