Strobing and contouring. It’s my guilty pleasure. I’m addicted. Trend or no trend I’ll continue shaping my face til the day I.. alright let’s not finish the sentence hahaha. Why? When done correctly, it can make your best features POP and also hide your flaws. Today I’ll be reviewing Revlon’s Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick. I brought this with me together with the Insta-Blush and Insta-Fix Foundation when macho kid jop and I travelled to Tagaytay and didn’t want to bring my whole make-up kit.
Yes. I only brought 3 items with me! Each stick costs around 725 PHP
I brought all 3 but for today I’ll only be reviewing the highlighter

I packed light for this weekend’s trip and just brought with me Insta-Sticks and Brow pencil from Revlon (products on next post), and Lip and Cheek Tint in Hibiscus from Human Heart Nature. I’m happy how it came out! NEW BLOG POST today on The Macho Mom www.kikaysikat.com This time I wrote something personal. It’s all about letting go of things you can’t control (link in bio). . . . . @revlonphl @humanheartnature #RevlonPh #LoveIsOn #Revlon #Instablush #instasticks #fotd #humanheartnature #clozette #clozetteco #bblogger #bbloggerph #kbeauty #beautybloggerph #pinoyblogger #filipina #blogph #bloggersph #mommybloggerph #skincareph #skincare #makeupph #makeup #asianbeauty #themachomom
Packaging – It comes in a snap plastic twist-up stick with a secure cap. Perfect for travels!
Staying Power – *sigh* In a humid country like hours, this slides off within 2-3 hours on my face. Even with a primer.
Shade/Finish – OOOOH the shimmer is ultra micro super fine baby. No visible glitter in real life or in photos. It leaves your face with just that glow from within.
Texture – It glidses like smooth silk and dries powdery.
Scent – Nothing noticeable.
Final Thoughts – Great for travel or for touch-ups. Expect frequent touch-ups if you use this one because it doesn’t last very long. I suggest using a setting spray on top. It’s unfortunate because it really imparts a lovely lit face what’s not overpowering or loud.
