Hello friends….I don’t know about you but I waited a long time for UD’s Holographic Disco Stick to become available. Why? Well, I mean if anyone can do holo justice for us #holosexuals, it’d be cutting edge always fierce UD……amiright?!??!
First, the business end….You can purchase the Disco Stick here for $26USD, for that price tag you get a whopping (sarcasm) .21oz. Here is how Urban Decay describes the highlighter:
When an average highlight just won’t do, take it up a notch with Holographic Disco Stick from our Disco Queen collection. This holographic highlighter creates an iridescent, multidimensional sheen that looks amazing on any skin tone. Use a little for a subtly ethereal shimmer, or keep layering for an intensely holographic highlight.
With Holographic Disco Stick, shimmer goes straight-up psychedelic. We laced this holographic highlighter with traveling pigments that seem to change color before your eyes. Create a hyper-dimensional glow—for a luminous effect that’s almost otherworldly. Our silky, lightweight formula glides on, flashes down and has an airy finish (so it won’t interfere with your complexion makeup).
Aaaaaaand, here’s how I describe it: Absolutely positively NOT holo!!! With that being said…I actually don’t hate it. If you’re into glitter/sparkle (obviously I am) then you may like this. It’s purpley/pink/blue glitter shift…that’s basically it. I’m sure there are other products like it, in fact…it reminds me a lot of Milk Makeup’s glitter stick in lavender which can be found here. You got a ton more product for just a few bucks more….and they aren’t slapping the word holo on it to sell more…(not that they haven’t done that in the past).
Alright, let me get back on track…despite this not being holo, and as a holosexual I take offense to them labeling it as such…..the product is nice and feels good on the skin. It’s not gritty and it’s not greasy and looks very pretty on the skin. If you’re looking for blinding, this ain’t it sis. If you’re just looking for a little extra sparkly and dewyness, this is it. This gets an F for the name and a B for the actual product. Sadly it’s pretty expensive for the amount you get in the tube . Rather than going on and on, I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
On a side note, I get money back on nearly every purchase I make with ebates. In fact, I just got $100 delivered directly to my paypal account from last quarter. All you have to do is sign up for ebates (you even get a free gift card without even purchasing anything)….and when you’re ready to purchase, just go to the site, type in the website you want to buy from and use their link …it’ll show you how much cash back you get on purchases and it can really add up. If you’re going to put your trust in me with anything it should be makeup and online shopping…..Ebates.com literally costs you nothing, and pays you to shop…no gimmicks, you don’t have to work for it..just use their link, or use their add-on and you don’t even have to go to their site first! Click here to sign up..I promise, you won’t regret it and you may even thank me for all of the money you’re going to get back!
Okay, NOW on to the good stuff….
