Kat Von D Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter

Kat, hey. She keeps on saying stuff and upsetting people. And then she keeps on making really great make-up. It’s absolutely a dilemma whether to talk about this brand or not – and believe me, people do make (especially in light of the anti-vac comments she made) it clear when they don’t agree with her views. Actually, more than ever before there are controversies in beauty world – whether it’s the never ending story of Lime Crime, the behaviour of Jeffree Starr or the confusion of Deciem … there’s always something. Which doesn’t help, but I’m just saying. So, I’ll crack on with the review but please do feel free to express your views if you wish.

Kat Von D Metal Crush Extreme Highlighter

They’re called ‘extreme’ for good reason – the light beaming off these highlighters when the sun hits them is extraordinary. Funnily enough, they’re not very swatchable because you use them very diffused for a shimmer scatter that is almost electric. Trying to swatch them at intensity is impossible because it’s such a fine powder that doesn’t want to behave that way.

The golden shaded highlighter is Gammaray while the silver is Stephonik. The latter is shot through with blue and pink so you get a kind of iridescent sheen, while Gammaray is a peachy gold with pink.

I think you can see that they’re super-super reflective, but then, so many highlighters now are. A lot of them have gone extra dimension so perhaps these aren’t completely unusual but they are lovely quality.  They’re £24 each HERE. It’s worth noting that Debenhams has the Metal Crush Highlighter Palette (with Gammaray, Thunderstruck and Roseshock) for £21.44 HERE – over £10 off.
