Strobing with Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly StarterTuesday, October 25, 2016
I have always admired Korean's beautiful, dewy skin. I think with dewy skin, you can hide a lot of skin flaws and imperfections and make it appear as if you have beautiful skin when you actually don't. I was in one of my Watson's shopping sprees spending my GCs that I have acquired from events when I discovered Holika Holika's Aqua Petit Jelly Starter.

This makeup base actually had several steps to achieve the "wet-skin" glowing look, but I was told by their SA that getting the starter alone is ok to achieve the look. I was actually quite disappointed when I got home and tried it out.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Perfect Topping on top of my liquid foundation or, Physicians Formula's Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent, but unfortunately, it did not achieve that though.
I'll get to that later.

Now below is a photo of me using the APJS (Aqua Petit Jelly Starter) as a highlighter. I dabbed some product on with a sponge (the one that came with it) and it's actually more effective to use it for strobing. It almost has the same effect as Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl. I just love dewy looking skin.
You have to admit that the larger size and the way cheaper price tag when you’re putting it up against Benefit’s High Beam makes you want to rush to the nearest Holika Holika store! If you’re an avid user of Benefit's High Beam, Watt's Up or Girl Meets Pearl I’d HIGHLY recommend and suggest checking out Holika Holika APJS!
