Jane Iredale White/Pink Highlighter Pencil

This chubby dual sided pencil is an easy tool for looking more rested.

The shimmery white side is lovely in the inner corners of the eyes (draw sideways Vs, or my favorite thing to do is a light dash along the lower lid until you hit where the lash line starts.) The pink side is a pearly petal, a great accent along the cupid's bow or smudged along the lid as a creamy shadow. You could also use either side along the cheekbones, making this a versatile item for traveling or freshening up in the late afternoon. And no matter how you use it, it contrasts beautifully with a (fake) tan, hastening the feeling (at least in Seattle) that it really is Spring.

100% Pure Luminous Creme: Starlight

100% Pure's has been expanding their offerings lately at a dizzying and rapid pace. Notably included are thier Luminous Cremes; a trio of highlighters in shades of pink, white and champagne.

I picked up a tube their champagne shade, "Starlight," hoping to use it as a cream eye shadow. The formula is light, with an almost air-whipped mousse-y consistency, but there are far too many emollients to be used anywhere on the eyelid, creasing appeared almost instantly. 

However, it's lovely on the brow bone, cupid's bow, bridge of nose, and of course, along side the cheek bones and orbital bone. It's subtle, not too shimmery and easily portable (the packaging is lightweight and not messy at all). For those looking for a non-toxic substitute for Benefit's High Beam, "Northern Light" is a near identical match.
