Highlighters are one of those products that I don’t use every day but when I do I notice a big difference in my look. I tend to skip it when I run out of time but I love how a few carefully placed swipes of highlighter can add such a pretty glow. I really like to mix liquid highlighters into my foundation for a lit-from-within glow but when I want a more noticeable highlight, I always go for powders. I recently picked up the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner as part of a Sephora promo and I’m so glad I did. It’s definitely a little flashier than most of the highlighters I’ve used but I’m having a lot of fun with it.
The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner is a powder highlighter made with Tarte’s signature Amazonian clay. It also contains micro-pearlescent flecks to give you a soft, luminous glow that lasts all day long. Tarte’s formula mimics natural light relflection and won’t make dry skin more noticeable or wear off as the day goes by.
The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter comes in three different shades that are designed to be buildable and work with all different skin tones. Stunner is described as an opalescent highlight. It’s a really pretty warm champagne shade with a slight golden pink tone. This highlighter is super pigmented and definitely packs a punch. It glides on easily and has a great metallic look to it. The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner can be applied very lightly for a more natural look but it is also super easy to build up for a more dramatic look. This is definitely a highlighter that needs a soft hand, it is very easy to go overboard with it.
I think Tarte Stunner is really fun when I want a more noticeable highlight. The color is really pretty and it’s so easy to get an intense highlight with this formula. I’ve mostly been using it on my cheekbones but I also like it dabbed on top of bright lipsticks for a fun look. This highlighter looks really pretty on the inside corner of my eyes and I think it’s a great eyeshadow color as well.
I’m really happy I tried the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner. It’s definitely a flashier highlighter than I usually use but I really like it and I think it’s super fun for warmer weather. The warm champagne shade is so pretty and it doesn’t take much product to get the look I want. I love how soft the powder is and how easy it is to apply and this highlighter really does last all day.
There are currently a couple of different promo codes for highlighters at Sephora. GLOWON is the code that I used and while it’s currently out of stock of the Tarte, there’s a mini Urban Decay highlighter available. You can also use GLOWFORIT and choose from highlighters by Cover FX, Giorgio Armani, and Urban Decay. The mini Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Highlighter in Stunner has been restocked though, so keep checking back for more!
