I have the 'That Glow' palette and it is honestly one of my favorite beauty products of all time! It comes with 4 really pretty, pigmented shades; Sunburst, Golden Bronze, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold. Sunburst is a gorgeous shimmery white that, when applied on your cheekbones, looks incredible! Golden Bronze is then a shimmery brown which is great for bronzing the face to give the illusion of glowy, tanned skin. Finally, Bubbly and Dripping in Gold are both beautiful pinky/gold colours which are great for a more subtle highlight or can be used as blusher. Overall, all 4 shades are stunning and have great staying power and, although expensive, I would definitely recommend to everyone! ...read more

I own the shade "Lunch Money" and it is my absolute favourite cream highlight ever! I am not a fan of creme highlight but this is so lightweight, blendable, and pigmented I forget it's a cream! I will use this on its own applied with my fingers on the top of my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and Cupid's bow for a super glowy but natural glow and health to the skin! It last all day on the skin and there is no need to put a powder highlighter on top but you can if you like. The shade is a beautiful classic champagne and is an absolute staple for any highlight lover! ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter...read more

I'm so glad this is #7 in highlighters/ glow powders. It's AMAZING!! I searched and searched for a perfect highlighter for my face and this one is it. I use it on my cheekbones, above my eyebrows and on my nose down the middle after foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer. I then top it off with the NYX dewy setting spray - which I HIGHLY recommend if you like a nice glow- plus it blends everything together nicely. I love this highlighter cause it's not liquidy- which those kinds tend to wipe off my makeup. It's also not too powerdery and has a nice clean finish. It only requires one application and I personally use my finger vs a brush. When I used a brush it took longer to get the same coverage/ effect. I recommend using your finger to apply then use a brush on your face to blend in. This stuff is awesome though! And lasts forever! Plus it leaves a natural glow and doesn't look artificially. I have light olive skin tone of that helps ...read more

These highlighters are so amazing! They're only £3 and they're so pigmented and long wearing it's ridiculous! Some of the best highlighters around and I would recommend them to everyone! You can pick them up pretty much everywhere from drugstores to make up revolutions own site as well as other beauty sites online. Absolutely love these and I couldn't fault them in any way. ...read more

I absolutely love this illuminating palette! I almost use it every day and it is so gorgeous! It is so easy to blend and it is super pigmented and you can use it for so many things! I have used it as a highlighter, I have used it as an eyeshadow, I have used it as a inner corner Eye highlighter, and I have used it as a blush topper. There is so many uses for this and it is only six dollars and it is absolutely amazing! It comes with a huge mirror and everybody should own one! You can also pop out the little individual pans and make your own palette if you have the contour palette or the bronzer palette or another palette you can make your own palette by popping them out. ...read more

Pretty! I was looking for something that gave me a sheen of bronce or spicy ginger. this is the perfect shade. Now.. I think that this was designed for dark skin, I have medium tanned skin and I can make it work. You just have to be careful to use it sparingly and on the right points of your face. It's a bit glittery but in summer it looks stunning. This can be sorta used as a blush/highlighter for medium-tan skin. A bit pricey but looks beautiful, I recommend it! ...read more

This is a great highlighter is you want a WET SHEEN look. It’s not glittery and not metallic or sparkly. I apply with my fingers and usually need to build it a bit to get the effect I want. But the sheen is so great for a dewy, natural summer look. It sits very nicely on my liquid foundations. The color is good for most skin tones and the price can’t be beat. ...read more

This Illuminator Powder is the best, but is very expensive! It lasts a long time and pairs well with the Laura Mercier setting powder. It has a shimmery finish and is easy to apply. I like to use it during the summer months to apply a nice glow to my tan skin. ...read more
