I am obsessed with getting a glow. It creeped into my daily routine more and more, and now, I just can’t get enough of looking fresh. I thought I’d put together my little edit of my favourite glow inducing products for you to peruse.
My first foray into glow products was Benefit Watts Up – a simple cream stick formula that left a candlelit glow on the skin. I wore this religiously after purchase. I still drop back to it every now and again, or it’s even better for layering it you really want to glo up. My next dabble was the Balm’s Mary-LouMinizer and if you can’t guess, I loved it, hard. I’ve not only hit pan, I’ve reached the point where it’s getting risky to travel with it as it may shatter. Honestly this stuff it incredible and it goes without saying it’s one of the best on the market for it’s price.
I then decided that I needed more so I tried the Sleek Kit in XXX. I haven’t got as much use as I’d have liked out of it, as I ended up buying the middle product only a few weeks later, more on that in a mo. For a budget quad, this is excellent, it comes with some really gorgeous colours that allows for a variety of looks. I also got the L’Oreal True Match Highlighter in XXX for when I was more bronzed in summer. It feels luscious on the skin and give a more golden bronze glow which is exactly what I was after. I also picked up the ColourPop highlighter in Whisp, if you read my review, you already know how much I love this. Such a great little product
But the centrepiece has to be Becca Champage Pop. I treated myself to this just before my best friends wedding and have never regetted it. On the day, I remember putting it on nearly all the bridesmaids, as we all oooh’d and ahhh’d at the difference it made to our face. Since then it’s barely ever been off my face and I’ve not made much of a dent. It looks natural, yet noticable and dreamy all in one go. If I only saw buy one product, get this. It is wholly stunning and universally flattering.
Finally, setting powders. I started off with the Boujouris Java Rice Powder, which is a lovely little loose powder that stops you looking so matte. But the big winner here is my Hourglass XXX powder which, again, I’ve hit pan on. This will be repurchased once it’s gone as I couldn’t be without it. It adds the extra dimention to my foundation without ever taking away from the glow I have built up. It’s pricey at nearly £4o, but I can’t express how good it is.
Well, there you have it. A bit of a mega edit, but it’s all out there. I love highlighters. It’s probably my favourite part of makeup now. What are your favourites?
