Faresat 4 in 1 Baking Powder Highlighter Palette Review, Swatches: Next on my Highlighter spree is the ‘Faresat Artist and Salon Makeup – 4 in 1 Baking Powder’. It says baking powder but it’s actually a highlighter. This palette was my very first Instagram purchase. When I think of what made me buy it, the fact that it is a highlighter was convincing enough. Now, this brand is a middle east brand, probably from Saudi. Sadly, I couldn’t find any website for this brand. Nonetheless, this product is amazing. When I got this, I didn’t own too many highlighters. So, I was looking for a gold or silver kind of shade to flaunt my skin with. Thus, the search began and destiny brought me to this beauty. This was probably everything I could wish for.
Curious to know what I wished for? Then let’s jump straight to the review.

In Detail Faresat 4 in 1 Baking Powder Highlighter Palette Review, Swatches and My Experience
The outer leaf is made of cardboard. The leaf is mostly in black with beautiful floral patterns on the front and has gold edges. The company logo and name is written in gold metallic fonts and the product name is written in white. The backside of the cover has the ingredients and the expiry information in it The actual casing of the palette feels like pure luxury. It is made of a good quality acrylic and is a square palette. The palette Is sleek but slightly heavy making it sturdy.
The company name and palette name are printed in gold fonts on the front and the expiry information Is printed on the back.
The dimensions of the palette are 3.9* 3.4 inches.
Now comes the fun part. This palette has four shades in it. two gold toned shades, a copper shade and a white shade.
The product comes in square pans and they are pretty generously sized.
Individual Shades Description of Faresat Highlighter Palette
The palette doesn’t have any shade names so let’s number them from 1 to 4.
1st Shade – A pale gold
2nd Shade – A warm gold
3rd Shade – A copper bronze shade
4th Shade – A silvery white with micro glitter
What I noticed is that Shade 1 is an exact color dupe for the Mary Lou Manizer from the Balm cosmetics. Texture wise the balm highlighters are smoother.
Being a highlighter addict, I had absolutely no reason to dislike this palette. It has great pigmentation and blends like a dream. There’s no intense powder kick off but the shimmer particles do land on the palette when you use a brush. The best part about the colors in this palette is that they are subtle but you can layer the product and glow like there’s no tomorrow.
What I also liked about this palette is that there’s a color for every skin tone.
In my opinion, Beauties with medium to deep skin tones can flaunt all the four shades.
But for fair women such as myself the copper shade wouldn’t be a really good option. No matter, you can always mix the shade 3 and shade 4 and still look bomb.
The net quantity of the product is 18 grams. So, there is a lot of product in it.
Another fact is that you can pop the pan from the palette and carry it in another case, if you wish (but it isn’t magnetic) or maybe you can replace it with a new pan (individual pans not available with seller currently).
Now, for the price; all this goodness comes at a price of 1200 INR which I feel is a fair price considering the price for single highlighters these days.
