It seems that the trend in makeup world is to be obsessed with everything new that comes out, ever. And so, Jeffree Star has come out with a BLACK highlighter, and people are losing their damn minds for it.
But frankly, I don’t know how to feel. I don’t know how this would work. Isn’t the point of a highlighter to mimic light catching your cheekbones? Since when are we redefining highlighter to mean any product that shimmers? The brand had the following to say about the product:
SURPRISE… limited edition for Halloween season! 🍦 a unique #SkinFrosthighlighter for the month of October! 👻 Her name is #OnyxIce ❄️ This grey/black highlighter is full of sparkle and looks UNREAL for creating smokey eyes and dramatic looks! Can be used for extreme body painting, Halloween or just plain fun!
Okay, so it’s a highlighter, but you have no intention of actually using it as a highlighter? Because it doesn’t actually make sense as a highlighter. Got it. I suppose I can get on board. The product seems to be very pigmented, which is a great thing for a Halloween look.
The product is available for the remainder of the month.
Alright. I’m sold..
