Technic Strobe Kit

By andhonestly - Friday, January 19, 2018


Technic is one of those brands I haven't used much by. I once had a disastrous contour kit, and I have a single highlighter in my collection that I do love. So my opinion is pretty neutral. When I received this kit for Christmas, I was excited at how glowy but natural the highlighters seemed. The kit included a blending sponge and a primer spray, priced at £10.00.

Immediately I noticed that the powder highlighters weren't as tightly packed as they could've been, as the creams were dotted with little flecks of product. It seemed like it was mostly the lilac/silver highlighter.

The two powders swatched really nicely. They are a little glittery, but not overly so and blend into the skin when buffed out. I really did not like the consistency of the strobe creams. They are very, very slick and feel more like a melted lip balm than a product. I'm used to warming products with my finger, or on the back of my hand before application, so this just seemed strange. Although, they are admittedly lovely colours.

For the look below, I tested out the lilac/silver powder by blending it along my cheekbones and dotting on the inner corners of my eyes. As you can see, it picks up some texture, but not too much. Despite how bright it looks in the pan, it's quite natural and can be worn for a subtle look, or built up to blind.

If you're like me and prefer a softer highlight then this palette would work. I don't think I'll get much use out of the strobe creams though. They are too thin in consistency for my liking, also not bold enough to show up under foundation. If I put them on top of foundation, they take it off and I'm not into wearing highlighter without base makeup. But still, I really like the powders and will most likely continue to use them.
