As an avid YouTube-tutorial watcher, I’m a huge fan of how beautiful a cream/liquid highlighter can look. Especially with summer here, we tend to avoid piling on the powders. It all ends up turning into one massive cake on your face anyhow. Personally, I prefer to stick to creams and just set them all in place with one powder. The truth is that no matter what the season,
The truth is that no matter what the season, highlighter is one product I’ve never been able to rock in cream/liquid form. I watch everyone effortlessly pat them in and watch it seamlessly blend. Well, for some reason when it comes to me I pat and all I get is my foundation or concealer moving out of place and the highlighter blending into nothing. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but they have just never worked. Until now…
Topshop’s Glow pot has been a hyped product for ages and ages now. I remember it being a holy grail product about 3 years ago, everyone swore by it and I’ve always been tempted to try it. Recently I got the chance to shop a friend’s stash and spotted this. I barely touched a speck of product that was in the lid and swatched it and it was beautifully intense. I had a good feeling that it would work and I was right!
For once, I can also pat this onto my cheekbones and watch it blend seamlessly without moving the product around. I don’t know if it’s the creamy formula that allows for this to show up on my skin, but it really does apply beautifully to my cheeks. I actually especially have been obsessed with this for my nose highlight! It blends beautifully without looking too obvious. You can see above how intensely this swatches, I barely tap the product lightly and it’s enough for my entire face! I don’t think I’ll ever run out of this.
The colour itself is absolutely beautiful as well, obviously. It’s a perfect champagne with gold undertones which is what works for me highlighter-wise. I’m honestly obsessed with this, couldn’t have come at a better time!
Let me know what cream/liquid highlighter you swear by!
