Ciate – the Dewy Stix Highlighter

When it comes to highlighters, it’s fair to say I’m a little obsessed with them and have quite a growing collection of different shapes, colours, textures and finishes. When this Ciate Dewy Stix landed through my letterbox I was quite excited to see how it worked, I don't own very much from Ciate by make of makeup, so this is a first for me.



"Take your beauty game to the next level with Ciate London's new Dewy Stix. Add an instant life-from-within radiance without heavy pearls or shimmer" says the description.

The packaging already appeals to my inner magpie, show me something shiney and I am wanting to touch it add to that a chubby stick look and applicator and I am a fan before I have swatched it. With a unique formula that creates a dewy complexion without that heavy shimmer, or oily look as I prefer to call it, the balm-like texture of this stick simply glides onto the skin with minimal fuss. It is non-sticky or tacky and leaves behinds a really pretty finish, Skin Glossing the term is called and a huge beauty trend right now.

Ciate – the Dewy Stix Highlighter
It can be used on cheekbones, brow bones, cupids bow and anywhere the light would naturally hit your face. It can also be used over eyeshadow to create a wet-look finish. If worn on top of foundation whether it is a cream, powder or liquid, it doesn't move or remove it as I thought it would, it just glides on top leaving a really subtle highlight, which if you prefer, can be built up using multiple strokes.

The Dewy Stix also contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and it is cruelty-free. Priced at £22 and is available from the Ciate website.

  1. I've never tried anything from Ciate's actual makeup range either. I love the idea of this. Sometimes I just want a natural glow rather that lots of sparkle.

  11. Now that looks good. I love that it doesn't remove any of the make up it is put on top of as I believe many others do. Love the glow it gives the skin too.
