Pérsona Cosmetics is a newer makeup brand created and owned by Sona Gasparian, who is also a social media influencer. Sona is an amazing beauty and fashion blogger, she is extremely knowledgeable about the products she talks about and is always very informative. Her content is beautiful and creative, as is her makeup brand! Previous to the launch of her new Cali Glow highlighters, she launched the Pérsona Identity Eye Shadow palette – the perfect everyday palette with the most buttery formula! Pérsona Cosmetics is now available at Ulta, which is super exciting! Congratulations to her and the growth of her brand, it is so well deserved!
Their newest launch, as well as their second released product, are the Cali Glow Highlighters. They have three total shades in the current collection, Laguna, Zuma, and Del Mar – all named after Sona’s favorite beaches along the Californa coast.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, both exterior and component. Although the color layout is very popular and on trend, as seen with lines such as KKW Beauty and Fenty Beauty, these still stand out in the crowd. The soft nude, almost baby pink, packaging is my favorite look. Pair that with the black, white, and touch of rose gold and it’s just downright dreamy.
The three shades will suit a variety of skin tones. Laguna is a very light ivory shade, most flattering on paler skin tones. Zuma is the most versatile and universally flattering shade, being that is a champagne/rose gold. Del Mar is the deepest, looking best on deeper skin tones, but it would also make for a nice glowy bronzer for more medium tones. Personally, I love to mix Zuma and Laguna for my perfect shade, but Laguna looks best on me on it’s own since I do have paler skin.
I have fallen in love with the formula of these, I have seriously only used these since I received them in the mail. They are specifically designed to achieve a warm, sun kissed reflective glow. Formulated with Vitamin E and Cacao Seed Butter, the highlighters are super buildable, ultra smooth and creamy. The formula has a very lux feel to it, extremely blendable, highly pigmented, and doesn’t highlight texture or pores. I recommend picking one of these beauties up if you love to glow!
