Highlighter is always the final step to tie in my face makeup and a dd a little (or a lot!) of glow when i need it. I only ever highlight my brow-bone with a matte highlighting powder but love a good glow on my cheek-bone.
I have a mental checklist of what I like in a highlighter and this ticks all the boxes!
Appearance and texture
The embossed geometric design on the actual product is really pretty. It feels smooth and soft to the touch, almost cream like! It has a very buttery consistency which I was pleasantly surprised about as some baked products can have a drier texture. This is a very glowy highlighter with tiny micro shimmer however I haven’t noticed it accentuating any texture on my face.
This swatch is really hard to translate in pictures. It is so much prettier in person. It has an almost golden apricot look to it with a slight bronzy undertone when you turn in the light. It is definitely a highlighter for medium to deeper skin tone and beautiful as a eyeshadow for everyone! It is really versatile and perfect for this time of year.
This glides onto the skin effortlessly and melts into the skin beautifully. It is easy to apply and blend out for a more subtle look but can always be used as an intense spot highlighter. it doesn’t interfere with other products and layers on top of creams and powders really well. I use the Real Techniques setting brush which has always been my go to highlighter brush. It picks up the right amount of product and applies your product exactly where you want it!
The packaging is pretty on the plus side and easy to find in your makeup case. It is as you would expect for this price range so nothing fancy and no mirror. It does feel quite cheap and is more on the bulky side of sizes.
My biggest pet peeve about the products in this line is the name. Is it a bronzer? is it a highlighter? The whole range of highlighters (yes no bronzer should be this shimmery) is named in the same confusing way and it is a mouthful!
Value for Money
This retails at only £5 for 7g which is an amazing price for the quality of the product and the amount you are getting! They have 3 options in this range; Bronze highlight baked bronzer (featured in this post), George Glow Highlight Baked Bronzer in Rose Quarts and George Bronze Highlight Baked Bronzer in Champagne. So as annoying and tongue twisting as these names are, they have options for different skin tones and your preferences which is always a plus!
I think this is a gorgeous highlighter whether you are on a budget or not. The texture is beautiful and the results on the skin are stunning. it is definitely worth picking up. The range of highlighters available are catered for all skin tones and is also cheaper than some drugstore highlighters. I always get compliments when I wear this and people are always shocked when I tell them just where this little gem is from!
