New cosmetics brand in the Netherlands created by make-up artist Kim ter Stege. The cosmetics line currently consists of 10 Loose Highlighter Powders. With shades ranging from the fairest to darkest skin tones. The loose highlighter powders are suitable for face, eyes, lips and body.
The first thing that attracted me to the brand is the name! I really wanted to get to know what Meraki meant and the meaning is very meaningful. I believe that Kim has chosen the perfect name for her brand.
“Meraki is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.”
Meraki’s Loose Highlighter Powders Include
- Colour Shifting – 4 Powders (The colour effect changes depending on the angle of viewing)
- Fair/Medium Skin Tones – 3 Powders
- Medium/Dark Skin Tones – 3 Powders
Zeus is the one that I purchased, it is described as a highly glowing bronze loose highlighter powder. The packaging is perfect and compact, it holds 4g. of product and can last a long time because a little can go a long way. Starting off it is best to use a light hand seeing that the highlighter is very finely milled.
Meraki Cosmetics is also vegan and cruelty free. It is stated on their website that no animal was harmed in the making of the products.
After using the product the only con that I can find is the packaging because of the holes in the container the product can be easily shaken and become messy. However, I have this same impression of the Sasha Buttercup Setting Powder which has a similar container.
Overall I would highly recommend purchasing the loose powder highlighter from Meraki Cosmetics because the products are highly pigmented and can be used in multiple ways. Adding the loose powder to the tear duct for a pop, lips for a shiny look or even to the collar bone area for a added highlight in your Christmas dress.
Meaning of Zeus
Zeus (/ˈzjuːs/; Ancient Greek: Ζεύς) was the sky and thunder god in ancient Greek religion, who ruled as king of the gods of Mount Olympus.
I purchased my Meraki Cosmetics Loose Highlighter for € 17,99. Currently there is a special code [XMASGLOW] that you can use for 15% off your order.
What are your thoughts on the shades & is there a particular one that you want to get your hands on?
