Overheard at Fashion Week: “This Is the Only Highlighter Worth Buying”
Backstage at Fashion Week Australia is a primo place for picking up fresh expert beauty tips and product recommendations. Every year I walk away with updated techniques, unique recipes for product cocktails, and a list of must-try goodies as long as my arm. In particular, I'm always on the hunt for new pro-approved foundations, luminisers, and hair texturisers. And this time, I think I've struck gold. We're only three days in and already I've found, according to makeup director Nigel Stanislaus, "the only highlighter worth buying right now".
Used on models at several shows, most notably Macgraw and Double Rainbouu (with more to come), the product in question is Maybelline's Master Strobing Stick. Dazzled by its ability to highlight without looking OTT, I quizzed Stanislaus on exactly why it's so great. "Firstly, the texture is perfect—it's soft and mousse-like, and not sticky or oily at all," he said. It's also able to be used anywhere, from all over the face and decollete to the front of arms and shins. "When you take a photo, the Strobing Stick catches the light and visually moves the area forward, making you look extra-toned." The $16 face sculptor comes in two shades, warm- and cool-toned, covering all skin tones. Sold? I am.
