Highlighter Edit | 2016 Edition

Thursday, 5 January 2017

With the strobing trend hitting peak popularity, 2016 saw some serious highlighter innovation. From liquids to gels to crazy coloured pigments, we saw it all released to the market.

This past year saw a tangible shift in the beauty community into greater consideration of the mass consumption that product-based blogging induces. Particularly, the rise of the 'anti-haul' really drew attention to how most posts or videos in our community are largely ads to various products whether paid or not. I am glad to see people growing more comfortable criticising marketing and consumption patterns perpetuated by blogging and being vocal about the products you simply don't need. So, this is my two cents if you care to continue!

Review | Zoeva Strobe Gel
