Topshop Crescent Moon Highlighter

  





Topshop are hands down smashing it in the highlighter stakes, thanks to them I have found my holy grail cream highlighter and now powder highlighter and the prices don't make my bank balance weep either which is always an added bonus! 

This was without a doubt love at first swatch, Crescent Moon is the most beautiful iridescent peachy champagne shade - the perfect accompaniment to pale skin. This isn't glittery or shimmery in the slightest and I don't quite know how to explain it any better than it leaves your skin with a lovely sheen. This sits on top of existing makeup perfectly and doesn't settle into pores or draw attention to them at all. I use the Real Techniques expert face brush to apply this to my cheek bones, bridge of my nose and brow bones and then with my finger add a little bit to my cupids bow. I usually go for cream or liquid highlighters which are definitely more of an in your face dewy glow but with Crescent moon it's much more of a subtle look and might work better if you're prone to a bit of oiliness! 

I might be biased as this is the only powder highlighter that I've used but I did swatch it against NARS Albatross and this was a lot prettier in colour and more pigmented on my first impression and you also get a lot of product for the tenner that it's going to set you back. I need to start psyching myself up for an all you can eat Chinese marathon that I'm going to tonight, elasticated waists at the ready!!

  2. I hadn't used this for a while but I've recently fallen in love with it again. It adds such a nice glow without looking too 'done'! (really jealous of the Chinese by the way, have fun!) xx
