Product Review: Ellana Silk Glow in Coffee Martini (Illuminating powder)9/13/2009Shen
"Ellana describes it as an illuminating, sheer powder that is used for highlighting, contouring or adding depth to the face."Like mentioned above, Silk Glows are similar to highlighters. Like some MAC MSF's but lesser shine to them. If any of you have encountered the MAC Sugarsweet Collection MSF's, it is almost similar in texture. It glides on smoothly and very silky but without much of the shine and sparkles. It is tad frosty if you ask me. Just like what most would opt to use as brow highlighter.
If you would ask me why this became an Ellana favorite, my speculation would be because its the most complimenting color for Filipina skin there is among the Ellana Silk Flow Finishes. It is not too dark nor too light. You can say that it a very safe color when one would order it. I know a friend whom I got this for and loves it. It highlights her morena skin giving her the J. Lo glow. For very fair skinned, this will definitely work as a very soft contour. however, my NC30-35 skin loves this as highlighter as well. Photo at the latter part of this post is provided as an example.
