Current Make Up Bag Staple for the Working Girl – Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow in Rose Gold

I finally purchased something I had been wish listing for months, and it was 100 percent worth the wait!

Jemma Kidd's Dewey Glow in Rose Gold

I'm going to start off by saying, "No" this is not the best highlighter I ever tried. I don't want to create incredible expectations.
But this IS one of my current go to make up products.
This IS convenient, easy to carry/re apply, and does offer a perfect natural glow.

"Glow on the go" This is what I wanted Benefit "Watt's Up" to be
(The Benefit one is also nice, but JK's packaging is what I prefer, personally)

Jemma Kidd's Dewy Glow in Rose Gold is more of a beige color. The shade "Ice Gold" is recommended for pale skin tones, but I am currently medium skinned at NC25 and this is incredibly natural looking on my skin. It just blends in and adds a healthy sheen that melds seamlessly. Not a fake luminance, not a high shine causing blindness as you turn to the side, but just health, and radiance, in a pop open container.

Though many people have their own feelings in regards to this type of finger packaging ( you can use a brush) I find it incredibly convenient so long as you wash your hands or carry anti bacterial gel, and the container is nice and thin. Perfect for chucking in your purse. The mirror is quite a good size.
It is in that rubberized packaging that loves finger prints, but I don't mind this either. So long as the product is protected.

Why is this a working girl staple?

Working girls have:
1. No time
2. Need to look awake and polished
3. Probably apply minimal make up for a professional appearance but want to also seem put together, as in " Yes, I did make a semi effort for you all"

This looks nearly effortless, adds health to the skin, the glow makes you look more awake and less sleepy for morning meetings, and portability means re apply when necessary.

What are some of your make up bag staples?


  1. I agree with you, the packaging seems so clean and practical. I must get me Rose Gold sooner rather than later - I'm a working girl as well!

  2. This is soooo pretty :) This has been on my wishlist for months but I really don't need it at the moment :( I love the sleek packaging too and I actually like the rubber casing because it feels nice. Just wondering, what IS your favorite highlighter since this one isn't it?

  3. I like rubberized packaging; the fingerprints give it a worn in feel. This + packaging looks like a pretty good combination!

  4. This sounds like a good highlighter :) I like things that multitask like this. Looking polished looks so simple but it's a lot of effort! lol

  5. working girls need a instant glow fix!

  6. i like the packaging too! i think the finger prints show use and prob love!

  7. i like the packaging too! i think the finger prints show use and prob love!

  8. My favorite highlighter is MAC's By Candle light which was LE but has been re promoted once already so it may again!

  9. i like the rubber packaging too!!! it shows use and prob alot of love!

  10. It's like we're on the same brain wave frequency! I've been researching this and am so glad you posted about it because your swatches and product photos are some of my go to sources! I was worried that it would be too dark but I'm glad that it looks natural, I think it will be okay as long as I blend it in very well! Will have to add this to the top of my 'to buy' list!

  11. The shade of this highlighter looks beautiful!

    Some of my makeup bag staples are definitely concealer and blush! If you have those two, I'm good to go.. An eye brow pencil is also SO important as it really makes a difference to your eyes

  12. I like Becca pressed shimmer powders as highlighters. I haven't tried Jemma Kidd makeup before, I need to try this one.

  13. Oh dear ... I've been resisting this because I have SO many highlighters, but it's just so lovely!

  14. I really want to try this--I used to be all about the super metallic, obvious looking highlighters but lately, I've been favoring more subtle, refined luminizers (like my Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in BE206). I have 2 of the JK Jemma Kidd highlighting sticks from Target and actually,they're not bad--surprised I never hear people talk about them!

  15. This looks amazing! I have to give this a try!

    Stop by and check out my blog giveaway! :)

  16. Concealer and Bare Minerals Ready Mineral Veil (the pressed one) are musts for me right now

  17. I'm just getting into highlighters and love creamy products - thinking this could be perfect for me. My biggest makeup bag staple is my MAC eyebrow pencil in fling as it matches my eyebrows perfectly. Without it my face just seems completely featureless. Even if i'm not applying any other makeup I will pencil my eyebrows in before I leave the house! xo
