koyVoca Cosmetics Haul + Review

When I received an email from koyVoca cosmetics saying that everything was 30% off, I ran to their website and placed an order. In this order, I purchased the Hilife Highlighter in the shade Heir $12 and their Classic Setting Powder in the shade Medium-Deep $10.

Hilife Highlighter in Heir

 

Choosing a highlighter from their collection was so hard because they have several gorgeous colors and I love them all. I eventually decided on Heir and I’m loving it’s true gold color. The powder is so smooth, doesn’t have obvious glitter and it gives me an ethereal glow. The packaging is compact and great for traveling but I dislike the labels used for the shade names, I accidentally set it on a wet counter and the sticker started peeling almost immediately. Also, my highlighter came with a huge nick in it (as seen above), I assumed that it maybe happened while the powder was being pressed or during shipping.

After traveling with it and using the highlighter a few times there are more dents on the product! If you drop this once, you will probably be devastated at the empty pan and product everywhere. I’m not sure what they are using to press the pigments but the product is way too soft and will break away slowly, do you see all of the powder on the packaging? I don’t have this issue often.

 

Classic Setting Powder in Medium-Deep

 

I have no complaints about this powder! I realize that I should have purchased it in the Medium shade but I am so used to commercial brands who sell medium powders that are really “light” so my skepticism prevented me from going with that option. Thankfully I can work with medium-deep even though it’s a bit too red for my liking. My face is set nicely after initial application then I’ll notice a bit of oiliness in my T-Zone but that has happened with other powders also.
