Rainbow highlighters have been an amazing craze, & a lot of Etsy shops have been making them. So you're a bit spoiled for choice when it comes to picking one. Tomb Service actually offers two different traditional rainbow highlighters, one is a more pastel/light rainbow (which is the one I'm sharing with you today) & another one which is more vibrant/dark. They also offer a ton of other different colour variations of layered highlighters, so I'd recommend checking them out!

I do think they need to work on the formulation of this a bit more. When I use my flat contour brush, the green is the shade that gets picked up the most.  You can tell it's not as pressed or has a looser formula compared to the others. It sort of crumbles but not hard core. Just a little. When you use it the blue/purple aren't very strong, they sort of blend together with the green as well.

The nail formulation is good, it's smooth & is fully opaque with two coats. It's not streaky at all. There is one con to it however, it retails for $17 something in CAD. Which I believe is extremely over priced. & My personal opinion there's nothing special about it, I mean it's not holographic, it's not a multichrome or even a duochrome. It is 5 free & cruelty free however so is Zoya & their prices are roughly $10 CAD. & Yes I know that indie polishes do cost more but the average is 7-12 dollars, there are the odd polishes that are priced high however, some of those are made in Australia so it's due to the currency exchange & overseas shipping or the more high end indie brands which offer polishes with unique finishes, such as flakies, multichrome or holographic finishes.

& the next item is just so frusterating.
This is another layered highlighter & to be honest I respect what they're doing, but do they even test them out first?
 When I used my flat contour brush over this the 3rd shade on the left just crumbled, hard core. It's a mixture of thin shredded shimmer, white glitter (yes real glitter) & a thinner blue shimmer.
  So when you swipe your brush over you can't even really get any of the other shades because you've already scraped/crumbled so much of that one. I feel like the other are fine milled shimmers & pigments & then that one has glitter & shimmer flakes which is why it crumbles.
 Then when you apply it, it comes off just the way you think it would, it's chunky. So you try to blend it in.
 Then proof, most of it is gone. I tries this with a face primer (on the left) & then with an eyeshadow primer (on the right) & it worked the same on both sides.
& to top it off, you're brush is left with a mess. Glitter everywhere. & I don't mean to sound hard but I don't understand why there's white glitter bits in it. I had no idea they were in there. I don't want glitter where my highlighter should be. I want lots of shimmer. & only shimmer. Not glitter.

Nope. Just nope.

 Next up is a lip gloss, it's pretty good. It's a nice shade, they're not sticky. They have a high shine & are extremely comfortable. However I did keep finding these tiny black dots in the gloss.

These are just my personally experiences with the products. I'm not a fan of them really. & I wouldn't spend any $$ on them in the future. They aren't worth their price in my opinion. I always have mad respect for indie brands because they're literally starting from the bottom & making everything by hand. Some do it amazingly & some don't.
