The High-light of my Face!

Ooo how those £5 off vouchers come in handy when you have been craving to buy something from No.7! (To be fair, that’s the only time I buy No.7 products.)

Firstly, let me say that this product is apart of the spring collection and I don’t know when it is going to stop being in stores. I have one of the cream blushes already, which absolutely gorgeous! All the limited edition collections that are released by No.7 are created by the amazing Lisa Eldridge and I have to say most of their stand out products are from these collections.

Now, at first look it looks like any other highlighter, you know, nothing special. I have the No.7 skin illuminator (which is a fluid) and I hate getting product out of it, even though it’s lovely, so I didn’t have high regards for this highlighter. I mean, did I really need it in my life? Really? The answer I think is obvious…YES!

I placed my finger into the tester to see what it was like, it was sooo velvety, I don’t think I have felt a makeup product that soft before. Well, maybe that’s my naivety but the instant I touched it…I wanted it!

On the left the highligher blended out.

The price wasn’t great though, £13, it’s not drastically expensive but this wasn’t something which I needed, so I waited for the £5 off No.7 vouchers. I had some things to buy and in return I got my voucher. (I think they are stopping the vouchers mid March.)

This product is described as; “peach undertones that add warmth while the perfectly-partnered pink shimmer gives a youthful glow.” And it really does. The shimmer is so finely milled that it is only really noticeable in harsh lighting; so if you were going to dinner I wouldn’t really wear it. But if you’re going out on a night out and its going to be dark or you were to wear it during the day it would be perfect. If used sparingly (which is the way it should be used) it gives a nice sheen-y glow, not making it obvious that you have any highlighter on your skin. I just use in on the tops of my cheeks and under my brow.

Have you seen this highlighter? Have you seen any of the spring collection? Are you looking forward to the next collection? =) x
