Say What, another highlighter Liza? Yes, yes another! I have seen this little Glow pot from TopShop show up on quite a few blogs and YouTube channels lately and it sounded like such a dream I knew I had to have it. I originally wanted the other shade called Polished which is more of a iced pink shade but everywhere I looked whilst shopping was sold out and all they had left were the teasing testers! I was so upset but opted to buy Gleam instead and I’ve not been disappointed.
This highlighter is one of the easiest cream based products I’ve used on my face post foundation, I was a little worried it would wipe away my foundation but it doesn’t. It blends in beautifully, I just dab some on to my cheek bones and pat it out most of the time although I have used my Real Techniques buffing brush and that works well too although you tend to get a little too much product on the brush as there is less control.
The colour is a gorgeous golden copper that has tiny flickers of glitter, I hadn’t noticed the slight glitter particles until looking at my face under a light so it’s very subtle but very pretty. The colour is build able and even gives your face a slight glow shall we say, I just adore the effect it leaves on my skin. On me it works well and on paler days gives me a bit of colour too but if you have more English Rose skin then Polished is probably the shade for you as this may go a little too copper against your complexion. On my freshly tanned skin it gives a gorgeous golden sheen that looks simply beautiful and I’ve not stopped wearing it.
Polished is definitely still on the list and may even order it online because I adore this product so much and it’s going to come in very handy this summer.
