On my previous posts, I had a few requests to do a product review on the Topshop Glow Highlighter and I couldn't not meet your requests!! As you know, I bought this product rather recently, and it's actually one of the first highlighters I have ever bought. I never really thought that they were necessary for a look, but of course I was oh so wrong.
So Topshop has two different shades for this product, one in Gleam which is a rose gold colour, which is probably better suited to people with darker skin tones, the other one (which I have) is polish, a beautiful whitish pinkish sort of colour. First off, shall we just admire how stunning the packaging is! This highlighter is a cream so it's super easy to use and has a lovely soft texture. The creamy consistency makes it easy to blend which is always good, because you don't want your highlighter to be completely separate to the rest of your face.
So while using this product, I was very careful and only used very small amounts as I was experimenting with how much I wanted. Now a little does go a long way, so I am pretty sure that this jar is going to last me a very very long time. I don't have much to compare this highlighter to, but I really do like it. As you can hopefully see from the pictures, it gives a nice subtle glow to your face, and is perfect for defining your cheekbones.
To do this look, I took a small amount on my finger and dabbed it on my cheek bone, to highlight it. I didn't wipe it on my face but instead dabbed to ensure that none of my base makeup would rub or smudge. I had read somewhere else that using this causes your makeup to just wipe off, but that was probably due to how they were applying it. It was extremely hard to photograph the highlighter on my face but hopefully you will be able to notice the difference between the two pictures! But all in all, this is a really great product, and I would highly recommend that you check it out.
Let me know what your favourite highlighters are and if you have tried this one! Also let me know if you have any requests for future posts!
The Topshop Glow Highlighter can be bought at Topshop (obviously) for £9.00 which is not bad at all for such a great product.
I would also like to say thank you to everyone who has followed me on bloglovin, it honestly means the world to me that over 100 people have followed me! If you haven't already, you can follow me here.
