Smashbox + The Hoodwitch Crystallized Highlighter Review + Swatch

I am such a sucker for limited editions, and funky packaging and so when I saw the new Smashbox + The Hoodwitch Crystallized Highlighter, I knew it had to be mine. The fact that I probably had a highlighter in the exact same shade was certainly not stopping me.
The Smashbox + The Hoodwitch collection has some gorgeous products but I could only afford one item and so I opted for the Crystallized Highlighter in the shade Opti-Mystic. I love the iridescent huge faux crystals on the top of the packaging and this is definitely one of those dressing-table show-off products.
I never lie here on my blog, and I aren't about to start now, so in all honesty I had no idea who The Hoodwitch was, it turns out it is a crystal expert called Bri Luna, which Smashbox have collaborated with to celebrate beauty rituals inspired bu the transformative quality of crystals, which I actually think is really cool.
The Crystallized (yes it is bugging me that it is an American spelling and as I write this post it keeps being highlighted as being incorrect) Highlighter is a gel-powder highlighter that has been infused with crystals to give an iridescent shade that is inspired by spirit quartz - boujie as hell. It definitely is a beautiful highlighter, and does remind me of pink quartz with its soft pink shimmer and this highlighter definitely packs a punch, so I even use it as an eye shadow sometimes.
Is £30.00 too much for a single highlighter? Yes, it can be, but I think this is more of a work of art and we all know in the beauty world that is sometimes what you are paying extra for. You can find it online at Smashbox here.
