When L.A. Girl was launched in India last year, I picked up a couple of things from the brand. I have already reviewed the concealers and today I am going to review a stick highlighter. The highlighter is something I have fallen in love with and cream and liquid highlighters are my favorites. These are easy to use and easy to blend and give a natural glow to the skin. I have been using this product for 4-5 months now and I can definitely say this is one of my favorites. Read on to know why I love this product so much.

My Experience With L.A. Girl Velvet Contour Highlighter Stick Luminous:

L.A. Girl Velvet Contour Highlighter Stick has a very convenient packaging for a stick highlighter. It has a chubby retractable stick with the twist up function and a transparent cap. The body is color coded and the transparent cap enables you to see the shade clearly as well. The packaging is not messy and there is no chance of product wastage as well. Overall, it has efficient, lightweight and travel-friendly packaging.
Coming to the shades, the highlighter range is available in three shades – Radiance, Cashmere, and Luminous. I picked up the shade 'Luminous' which would be a perfect shade for fair to medium Indian skin tones. The shade ‘Luminous’ is a warm, slightly pale champagne color. It looks slightly icy on the hand swatch but if you see the picture where I have applied; you would notice how beautifully it compliments my warm skin tone without looking whitish. I have worn this for several occasions and every time the shade turned out amazingly good. The color payoff is good. It gives a nice medium color pay off with no amount of pressure exerted. For the full coverage, you can apply a bit of pressure and several layers. Thus it is easy to control the application and coverage. When I want a natural highlight, I simply blend with my fingers to the areas applied. For proper and full coverage, I dab with a sponge or fingers to spread the product and prevent sheering out of the color. Thus, you can use this for the day as well as night occasions.

The texture really surprised me. I was expecting this to be slightly waxy but it turned out completely opposite. The texture is smooth and buttery and glides on the skin like a dream. However, you can't say this is oily at all. It gives a thin layer on gliding against the skin and easy to blend with a finger. The blending part is really easy and can be done by a beginner as well. It sets within few minutes and doesn't look greasy at all. It gives a natural glow and radiance and for the dramatic look, you can easily layer the product. The product is made from the Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Seed Butter, and Grape Seed Oil and thus doesn't cling onto the dry patches at all.
It is waterproof and sweat resistant to a large extent. Additionally, it is also cruelty-free, paraben free and fragrance free. The staying power is really good. It stayed on my skin for around 5 hours or so and then I noticed the highlight being faded. It survives hot and sultry weather as well. However, if you want to make it long lasting, apply another layer of powder highlighter on top.
