Hey! This time I come to you with another mineral cosmetic – this time it is a highlighter from the Terra Naturi brand, which you can find in Drogeria Muller. It is a producer of cheaper, drugstore natural cosmetics, similar in composition and prices to Alterra, Alverde or Bencos. It is also vegan friendly.
I had to buy this highlighter as soon as I saw it in the store’s offer, so I followed it around several stores during a trip to Berlin. It is so beautiful that it was bought everywhere – even by people who do not pay any attention to the composition of cosmetics on a daily basis. This is because it creates a dazzling surface that is beige, not yellow or silver, but more natural and facial. The cosmetic is also cheap, but in terms of quality it is not inferior to high-end products. So I’m very glad that I managed to get it, it has been my favorite for a long time. If you are interested in my review, please read the rest of this post.

We buy the highlighter in a plastic box, it is large and solid, with a transparent lid. On the back of the package there is a white label with the name of the product and shade, unfortunately there is no composition on the label. It contains as much as 7g of the product, which is enough for a very long time. As you can see, the product is convex, and despite having been using it for months, no cavity can be seen on it.
This product has a wonderful color. It is a beautiful and golden shade that will definitely come in handy for the upcoming summer. It will perfectly emphasize my tan. It has a stamped white, brown and gold marble-like pattern, so it may look quite a dark shade in the package, but when scooped it is golden and you can’t see it on the skin at all. It is rather a peach-beige and slightly warm color.
Unfortunately, it contains fine glitter, which, however, does not bother me, because it looks very natural on my yellowish skin. It may not be suitable for very fair skin types, but it looks beautiful on others. It is perfect for darker complexions with yellow undertones. It gives the face a nice, healthy glow and this effect can be graded – from everyday shine to the surface.
There are no major difficulties in the application. The product is evenly applied to the brush, it has a certain creaminess in it thanks to oily additives, so it adheres perfectly to the skin and does not make stains. It does not dusty too much, does not flake off, spreads quite easily and holds up well. It can be used on the face, eyes or body, alone, on traditional liquid foundations or in combination with mineral foundations.
This Terra Naturi highlighter has a delicate and pleasant dessert scent, sweet. When it comes to abrasion, it stuck with me all day. It just lost a little in intensity, but it made it all the more natural. In terms of performance, of course, I have no objection either. A small amount is enough to cover the cheekbones, nose and eyebrow ridge, so the cosmetic will surely last for a long time, even if we use it every day.
I really like this highlighter not only on the face. Mostly as a daily, gentle highlighter on the cheekbones. I am glad that I chose this color instead of another golden or pink flash. The cosmetic is also cheap, but it is not inferior to high-end products in terms of quality. So I am very happy that I managed to get it, it has been my favorite shade for a long time, it looks so gentle and natural in my case.
