INIKA

Birchbox Breakdown

If only we had our own personal lighting crew to follow us around all day. We’ll keep dreaming, but the next best thing is this illuminating cream from Inika, a cosmetics range that’s rigorously au naturel (it’s 100% organic, cruelty-free, and even certified halal). A dab on your cheekbones, brow bone, and collarbone will guarantee you’re always seen in the best light.

How it Works

Made using a blend of plant-based ingredients, mineral pigments, and light-reflecting mica particles—and without any chemical dyes, fragrances, or cheap fillers—this illuminator not only defines your bone structure but also hydrates the skin.

How to Use

The formula is silky smooth but not oily. It’s also super-versatile: apply it above your cheekbones and brow bones, on the inner and out corners of your eyes, or wherever you’re looking to glow.

Just what you are looking for

I received this as a bonus gift and it is worth its full-price.
It has great coverage and blends well on top of blush. This is a great product.

The only thing to watch out for is a gush of crème when you first open the product after shipping. Let is settle before opening and avoid wasting product.

Loved it

just what I needed to get out of the winter doldrums. Seriously, it is not too shimmery or too greasy. It does what it does well and while I wasn't using highlighter before, I may now.

Love this organic & natural product!

The dewy texture on your skin is great! The subtle highlight looks like a candle lit or sunset glow. This is great for the tops of cheek bones and around the eyes. I got it as a gift with pruchase. So far I love this line of products. I will be purchasing this again.

light glow

I really like this highlighter because it's not TOO much. It gives just the right amount of glow without looking like a disco ball. I also don't like when some highlighters actually cause wrinkles to stand out more (especially around the eyes). This one doesn't do that because it's formula is much lighter, not thick or greasy.

As Promised

This highlighting cream highlights as promised.
It hydrates more than I expected without being oily at all.
The pink tone is light and just right - I needed to add blush to my cheeks after the highlight on my first test of the product.

Great luminizer!

This product is really amazing--I came by a sample of it through a friend and it is just the greatest luminizer/highligher I have ever tried. It gives a warm and healthy glow without begin to shiny or sparkly, and adds so much to your complexion. I apply under blush (and sometimes over again) and it really helps makeup set nicely. I have also heard amazing things about the Manna Kadar and would love to confront before giving my final word, but I'll definitely consider buying this product full size once I run out.
