Hey my loves!
How has your day been? Today I will be reviewing and swatching a gorgeous highlighter/shimmer powder by Motives Cosmetics that my cousin gifted me a few months ago!

Motives Shimmer Powder in Rose Diamond Review and Swatches
What Motives Claims..
An ultra-fine silky powder enriched with pressed pearls designed to reflect light for a shimmery, glam look. This Glam Collection of gorgeous shades adjust to your skin’s natural undertone, creating a sought after glow that beautifully highlights your natural features.

Price, Packaging and Quantity..
This shimmer powder costs $24 and you get 3.3g of product. The highlighter comes in a sleek navy blue compact with a clear lid with the brand name 'Motives' printed in gold across it. The lid also shuts very securely. I have traveled with this several times and it has never accidentally opened or cracked. I also noticed that the compact feels quite heavy considering the fact that you only get 3.3g of product.

My thoughts..
I absolutely LOVE this shimmer powder guys! And I am so glad she gave me this because I don't think I would ever buy myself a $24 highlighter but also because I am not really a 'highlighter' 'glowgetter' type of person. Every highlighter that I have tried so far either looks powdery, too icy or adds unnecessary texture to the skin, but this doesn't! This soft shimmer powder just blends so seamlessly into the skin and gives it a long lasting, gorgeous glow! In the image below, the swatch on the right is a finger swatch and the swatch on the left is the highlighter blended out.

That being said, this can definitely be built up for a blinding glow if that's what you're into. I like applying this with a fan brush to the tops of my cheekbones and above my eyebrows and with my finger along the bridge of my nose. I sometimes even apply some on the inner corners of my eyes and brow bone.

It comes in 4 different shades but I think the shade Rose Diamond is perfect for medium to deep skin tones.
