Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to give "an angelic glow" that can be applied all-over or just where you want it most. It is a luminous, powder highlighter that strikes the right balance between being noticeable without emphasizing the skin’s natural texture. The shimmer is fine, while the powder is silky and smooth. The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but all shades I've tried have blended out well and lasted around eight hours on me.

this is the only highlighter I own and probably the only one I need (for now). The price point is the only major downside. I apply it with a grey squirrel brush and i only need to swipe my brush half way through the product and build from that as needed.

One of my favourite highlighters. Doesn't emphasize pores. It has the right amount of sheen and it's very fine. It's also not glittery which I love about highlighters!
