No 7 Skin Illuminator!

I've had this 'No7 Skin Illuminator' for quite a while (bought with those amazing £5 off vouchers). I bought it after the brilliant Lisa Eldridge mentioned how good it was, I mean anything that amazing lady recommends should definitely be tried.

Bad Points:
I was so excited to use this product, I got it in the 'peach' tone because my skin a very yellow (they also do it in a 'pink' tone for those who have pinker skin tones). I went to try it the next day and it would not dispense! The applicator is a brush, so you push the tube and the product should peak through the brushes for you to blend in. The brush, personally, is rubbish, I would much rather use my fingers.

On top of that, when you do squeeze, which within itself is a task, you get far too much product out! You can't even get it back into the tube. *sigh* So I drastically chopped off the brush bristles so I could get to the hole (hence no picture of the applicator). It was still a little difficult to get the product out, so this product got left in its place for a rather long time…

Good Points:
…until recently. I decided to pick it up and try it once more, and low behold the product is coming out as I want it *smiles happily*. I don't know why it has decided to work properly, but if you want it then I would suggest decanting it into a tub or something that is air-tight.

I can honestly say I know why Ms Eldridge suggested this product. It gives the most loveliest sheen. I've been using it on the tops of my cheek bones for the past week or so, I feel like my skin has been looking rather dull so I've been trying to get it to 'shine' again.

It's a liquid formulation. It blends seamlessly into the skin. I use my middle and ring finger to dab it on. I powder the rest of my skin to get rid of all the unnecessary shine I don't want as I have oily skin. From the picture you can see how the micro specs of glitter pick up on the light. I assure you it doesn't look like you've got glitter on your face when you wear it.

£11 (but they always have money off vouchers) for 30ml.

For the winter months it provides the perfect skin pick me up. I probably wouldn't repurchase it unless the packaging changed, and to be honest, this is going to last me for a very long time. I know that No.7 have redesigned all their products so they may have improved this fault. I would definitely recommend going to see how you find the tester in store.

Have you ever tried this product? What do you think of it? What cream/liquid highlighter do you use?
