***Silk Mica is natural and is similar to sericite mica, but it is silkier, whiter, and offers a soft, smooth texture.

***Boron Nitride is a soft, silky, white mineral powder that adds slip and adhesion to a product. Boron Nitride is soft and adds supreme creaminess to the powder, and is a natural, inert mineral.

***Carnauba Wax Mica is Sericite Mica that has been surface treated with Carnauba Wax, the wax coating helps bind the particles, so the formulas have less fly away when pressed.

***Titanium Dioxide is a natural mineral used to whiten, and it makes a product more opaque.

***Magnesium Stearate is a chemical compound of Magnesium (element, same as in vitamins) and Stearate (plant-derived).

***Magnesium Myristate is the combination of Magnesium (a mineral) and Myristate, a fatty acid (naturally occurring). Magnesium Myristate will add adhesion, slip, soft feel, and helps to repel water.

***Zinc Stearate made from natural and essential raw material.

***Fractionated Coconut Oil (we use this to bind our powders) - fraction of coconut oil comprised mainly of Capric and Caprylic Acid, thus giving it more of an antioxidant and disinfecting effect. Fractionated Coconut Oil has a long shelf life, stability, and rancidity resistance.

***Colored Micas add color, shimmer, and shine to the product.

***Nylon12 is a powder we use to help with the slip in some of our deeper, more pigmented shades. 

***Oxides are natural minerals and add color to the product, also helps with making the product opaque.

***Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Hexylene Glycol - Preservative we use to preserve our eyeshadows and make them last longer.

We offer a seven day 100% money-back guarantee.

    Fantastic luminous highlighter

    Posted by Mary on Sep 3rd 2020

    Satin Kicks is slowly becoming my favourite highlighter - it looks like a luminous glow, there are no visible shimmer or glitter particles, it does not accentuate my skin texture and it lasts all day. Having oily skin, I find it really difficult to find powder highlighters that look natural - quite a lot of them can end up looking flat, but not this one! I was afraid it would be too dark for very pale skin (my best match is Fenty 105), but it doesn't leave a dark cast once I really buff it into the skin. I'd love to see Sydney Grace release more shades (both lighter and darker!) in this formula.

    My favorite sheen.

    Posted by Casey on Aug 15th 2018

    This is beautiful, and it's one of my favorites. This is the only highlighter that I took on my trip. You know you like and trust something if you travel with it. I can just slap it on bare skin or powdered skin, and it's what I want it to be right away. The finish is a pearly sheen that is still within the natural range, but the shiny side of natural. I have oily skin, and natural highlighters can look matte or disjointed on me. This one does not. It holds its own against the shine that my face has when I don't powder while looking apart of the skin when I do powder. It looks gorgeous when first applied, but the finish is at its best after it sort of melts into the skin (it does cake up on me if I foil it or apply it really thickly). I prefer a single layer and buffed in a bit. As the day goes on and oils are overtaking my face, the highlight doesn't just break apart but remains even. It lasts all day, but is less obvious later in the day because I am very oily. The base of the powder is lighter than TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer and Laura Geller's French Vanilla with a bit more of a yellow cream color. My skin still shows through. The shine is more even and less sparkly compared to Mary-Lou, but stronger than French Vanilla. Mary-Lou can make me look a little dirty sometimes, but I don't have to worry with Satin Kicks. For reference, I am on the fair side (I mix Laura Geller's Baked Balance N Bright in Porcelain and Fair) with yellow and neutral undertones.
