Okay, I admit this Kiss Twinkle Angel Highlight has a very, erhh, funny name, but I promise it's a really nice highlighter ^.^ This was a limited edition from the holiday season of 2008, but it took my sister at least half a year later to track one down for me while she was still living in Shizuoka.
I really love Kiss blushes (Pure Bloom Cheeks, will get to these later...hopefully), not just because each compact comes with 2 colors to mix and play with, but also because of their sleek and simple packaging, and especially so because of the tiny heart pattern that is embossed onto their surface. So when there's a highlighter made in a similar fashion, I had to get my hands on it!

This highlighter has a decently soft texture and is a bit more potent and other highlighters I've used. It gives me a nice glow, and with all the shimmers I do think it's better for night time. That said, despite looking very shimmery, especially that pink color, it's doesn't turn frosty on me and I like to sweep it over my t-zones and under eye area for a brightening effect.

Looking around on Kiss' website, I'm totally excited to see the newest Kiss Mix Moon Highlighters and Mix Heart Cheeks. Super duper cute, no? I'm so going to stalk Plaza now ^.^ Want!!!
The Mix Moon Highlighter is available in 2 "colors": 01 Pink Sherbet and 02 Pure Beige, which I doubt will make any difference going on. Still, I like them :P
The Mix Heart Cheeks are available in 4 colors: 01 Dolly Pink, 02 Apricot Pink, 03 Fruity Orange, and 04 Little Rose. And yes, I want them all!!!
