The packaging of the highlighter in the Charlotte Tilbury Christmas range is definitely quite impressive. Bar of gold looks like, well, a bar of gold. The product comes in a cartoon box with a magnetic closure. After the print wears off it won’t look as beautiful anymore and I am a little bit reluctant to use it. It looks so pretty!
Bar of gold is a gold highlighter and I was worried at first because gold highlighters don’t usually look very natural. Fortunately this product looks just as pretty on my cheekbones as it looks in the packaging. Bar of gold is not an intense highlighter, you can wear it every day without it being too much. There’s some shimmer in it, but you can’t see it once it’s applied on the skin. You get 4,5 g. of product. You can apply it on your cheekbones, lip’s cupid’s bow and décolleté. Bar of gold looks like a fine gold dust and it’s so perfect for the holidays.
Most of the negative reviews online are about the packaging of this product, a lot of people have received it shattered. This highlighter does not come in an additional box and carrying it around in your purse or travelling with it may not be a good idea. The product itself on the other hand is gorgeous and I’m very happy with it.
Bar of gold is a natural looking highlighter. If you are looking for an intense shimmer you may not like it. This product is great for my everyday makeup and for me it’s worth the money. I can see myself wearing it a lot this winter.
