Topshop 'Glow' Highlighter..

Highlighters are definitely my favourite thing about the moment. I can't get enough of having lovely, dewy skin that glows in the light. And this definitely does just that. 
I really only tend to use liquid highlighters because i love that i can also mix a little bit in with my foundation.  I've heard such amazing things about Topshops highlighters and trying to decide between this and Sunbeam (powder) was difficult but, i settled for this one and i don't regret it for a second. 


This little jar of loveliness contains a mousse highlighter, a little strange at first but apples so smooth, like a dream. I find if you use your finger it applies much more pigmented whereas using a stippling brush (i use Real Techniques) creates more a soft effect when it is buffed into the skin in little circular motions.

Although this appears quite golden in the pictures in reality it is a white mousse with golden and pink iridescent shimmer running through it. I think it personally gives a lovely glow that will suit any skin colour because its white - once blended the 'whitness' disappears and it just leaves a lovely glow (hence the name!) I like to apply this to area's like my cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupids bow and centre of forehead with my finger (a little goes a long way) then blend with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush and tah dah.

Perfect for brightening up the skin making yourself look naturally 'glowing' - get in! Considering i always look tired and dull this is a god send in my eyes. 

You can buy it online here and it's under a tenner.. bargain! 

Whats your favourite highlighter? Theres always room for a few more in my collection ;)

  6. This looks lovely!
    I'm very pale, and find that any kind of contouring looks too artificial on me, but highlighting seems like a nice way to create more dimension while not drawing brown lines across my face :P.
    Thanks for the review!
