Swatched: Cinema Secrets Hollywood Lights

A while ago Nesh of For the High shared her favorite “Glow Combo” and it included a product that I had never heard of, Cinema Secret’s “Hollywood Lights” in “Penny For Your Thoughts”. It looked amazing so of course I had to find it.
Cinema Secrets is a pro cosmetics brand that has been popular amongst Hollywood makeup artists for a long time. So naturally I found it online at my favorite pro shop Camera Ready Cosmetics.
“Cinema Secrets brings together the intense color of mineral pigments and the light-reflective quality of micro-pulverized polyflake to bring you the Hollywood Lights Collection! Choose from 14 pearlescent shades and 9 sparkly Glitz colors to draw attention to your face or body makeup”


I picked up two shades of Hollywood Lights “Penny For Your Thoughts” and “Opal”.
PFYT is a super shimmer copper shade that looks amazing on eyes and as a cheek highlight on brown skin.
Opal is a white based pigment with blue and green reflects. It’s very hard to photograph, but looks great in person. Opal reminds me of Sugarpill’s Lumi but more finely milled. It’s too light to use as a highlight for me but I think Opal would make a very cool highlight for very pale skintones.
