I'll start off with the packaging as that seems the logical place to begin. Topshops entire make-up range is packaged beautifully, it's something a bit different when it comes to high street make-up. It stands out from the rest of my make-up collection, in a good way! I love the hand drawn quality of the designs and I like the simple colour palette - usually black and white. This highlighter is my first purchase from this make-up range, I've had my eye on a few lipsticks for a while but I cannot justify it as I already have so many!
This compact is white with little stars on it, which I think is adorable. The only downside is that it doesn't have a mirror in it, that doesn't bother me too much but I think it may bother some folk. It is sturdy and appealing to the eye, I guess those are the two main criteria for packaging.
There is another highlighter called Sunbeam but I think it's far too gold for my skin tone. It would look much nicer on darker skin tones. Crescent Moon is a peachy-pearly-golden (use all the words!) highlighter that translates beautifully onto the skin. It's not too obvious but it is buildable. I don't tend to like highlighters that are too white as I find they look unnatural so this one is perfect as it has those hints of peach. It's texture is so buttery soft and it's very pigmented, which is brilliant. You get 6.5g worth of product too, for only a tenner, you can't go wrong. I can't recommend this enough, I love it!
Lovely, sturdy packaging.
Lots of product.
Minimal fall out.
Natural finish + beautiful colour.
Literally no bad points this time. I've been very lucky with my recent purchases, or very well informed. I really love the blogging community, all these reviews are so helpful and I don't feel like I'm blindly buying make-up any more. So thanks to everyone who has helped me make these decisions and helped me save money! I can only hope I've done the same for someone, who knows.
What do you think, does this highlighter look like something you'd like to use? Any other recommendations for highlighters?
