So I’m doing my first beauty review today and it’s of a highlighter I stumbled upon on Amazon for about £26. I don’t wear highlighters on a daily basis, but I enjoy doing make up looks with them from time to time and if I’m feeling particularly adventurous then I’ll wear it on my cheekbones and the tip of my boop.
To start with the packaging of this product is really sleek and looks very expensive. I’ve never tried an Illamasqua product before because £26 for one product is a little out of my price range, I mean I’ve tried free samples from them but I wasn’t exactly wowed by them, so in all honesty I don’t know why I purchased this product, but what I will say is I’m very impressed with it.
It’s a bit more yellow-toned to what I’d normally opt for in a highlighter. You’ll usually, if and when I decide to where it, catch me in a more pinky/blush hue. However, I am really appreciating the subtle illuminating glow this highlighter gives me which makes it perfect for daily use.
Applying the product is super easy, I just use one of my revolution highlighter brushes and apply it. It’s almost creamy and buttery in texture, which is strange considering it’s a powder, but I really like it’s subtle glittery goodness.
Overall, I’d say this product wasn’t entirely worth the price in my opinion but if you’re looking for a treat then I’d definitely recommend it, especially if you’re more into subtlety.
