I feel like it’s been a while since we talked about makeup, no? It’s been all nails and outfits lately.. well this was one worth waiting for, trust me! I’ve been using it for months and can’t believe I haven’t posted sooner – the all round summer glow getter. In the colder months I like a good contour/highlight combo but when it heats up outside I like an overall glowy look and this has enough colour to warm everything up and enough sheen to highlight.. it’s a one stop glow shop, really. I rarely use it alongside another product.
It does have a little sparkle but it’s finer than say the sleek highlight.. one of the nicer ones I’ve tried for the money. Much more of a sheen than a glittery powder which is what I prefer but if you’d rather a higher impact BOOM kind of highlight I’d recommend either the MUA or the Revolution offerings.. both considerably cheaper than this one. If I was going for a dramatic contour and darker eyes etc I would likely reach for one of those, they’re still great but I like something a little more subtle for day to day. Actually, for a beauty blogger I’m wearing less and less makeup these days.. I think it’s the heat!
Last note: the packaging, I’m not sure on this one. I don’t love cardboard packaging but it does have a very satisfying magnetic closure and the product itself is beautifully embossed so I can forgive S&G this time.
