Summer Essential: Topshop Glow Highlighter Review


The summer is fast approaching and I don't think there is a person in sight who is not anxiously waiting on the sun to finally make it's appearance. Personally, I'm not a fan of long, hot summer days as I absolutely hate lathering on greasy sun cream and feeling sticky, but sun protection is important especially for paler skin tones, like myself, and I can't deny that the sun makes me feel more positive.

Anyway, just because make up on a hot day tends to wear off pretty quickly, doesn't mean we shouldn't bother and I think I may have found my favourite product that will surely be on my cheeks every day of summer. 

Topshop's Glow Highlighter in Polished.

I've had this highlighter for quite some time now and I still adore it just as much as I did when I first bought it. I believe its current retail price is £9 and you can find it in any Topshop store or on their online website.

When I bought this highlighter I was new to the whole contouring and highlighting scene and by chance just picked it up in store one day and thought I'd give it a go.  It is in cream form and you only need the tiniest bit because the saying 'a little goes a long way' is very relevant for this product. 

As you can see I've not even started to reach the bottom of the tub yet and I'd say I've been using this product for about 6 months now. The highlighter is a pearl white colour with tones of purple and pink and looks amazing just above the cheekbone and on the brow bone. I've swatched it along my hand just so you can see how reflective of the sunlight it is. Perfect for summer!

I have tried other forms of highlighter since purchasing this product and I just can't seem to find anything that matches it's quality for the same price. Sometimes I even wear this highlighter alone just on my cheeks and I have had so many compliments about how radiant and healthy looking my skin appears. 

If you give this product a go or already have it, please tell me what you think. I for sure have this product as a makeup bag staple now and will definitely be repurchasing once I run out.

I hope you have found this post useful if you are looking for a little summer pick me up.

For now,
