No.7 Highlighter Review

Today's post I decided to share with you all an everyday staple item in my makeup routine that I am currently, overly addicted to using. When wondering in Boots I walked straight past this thinking it was a blush stick like the rest of the No.7 range next to it - until I looked closely and realized it was a highlighter, who'd of thought it?! Having um'd and ah'd for a good 5 minutes whether I needed yet another highlighter in my collection I finally decided to give it a try!

I think it took around a day or 2 for me to be completely in love with this product. I tend to find cream based highlighters work a lot better than powdery ones do, which seems a little odd to me as I prefer powdery blushers to cream ones. Creamy highlighters always feel and appear to be more noticeable without looking like Edward Cullen, you are able to blend it in to your own satisfaction a lot more and you have more control than to what powdery ones do. Powdery highlighters are great for brow bones but sometimes I find they go a little too crazy when swept across my cheek bones. 


Back to regarding the product judging on the packaging itself I was already loving this. I like the idea of a highlighter in a formulation of a lipstick/blush stick just like Benefit Watts up highlighter stick! I think these sort of package designs will last a lot longer than what a palette would. I love the colours used on the packaging everything looks very luxurious and high end! The highlighting stick itself is fairly chunky which you can guarantee will last me a very long time! hallelujah! 


The consistency of the highlighting is incredible and could almost be classed as a high end product judging on the results. I dab my finger onto the product then apply this on my cheek bones, down my nose and brow bone then blend it all in with any sort of small brush. The results are amazing on my cheeks and nose you can really notice a difference when standing in the light, it looks incredibly healthy and natural! This product blends in so well and has a good few hours of use before needing to reapply. My brow bones unfortunately didn't look like I had any product on at all so I use my trustworthy Watts up by benefit for that area.  


Pros:

Appealing packaging
Will last a very long time
Looks healthy and radiant
Natural
Buildable
Blends in well

Cons:

A bit pricey for a drugstore highlighter
Didn't do anything for brow bone
Too much can rub makeup away

Apart from the brow bone situation I love this product and will be continuing to use this in my everyday makeup routine. I would definitely recommend trying this if you prefer creamy highlighters and are after a buildable product to work with!


Do you like the sound of this product??

  2. This sounds really interesting, I tend to stick to powder highlighters as cream kinda scare me but I may have to give this a try!

  5. I always forget to look at No7 for things like this I'm the same with preferring a cream highlighter but a powder blush - I don't know what it is!
    I'm after a new highlighter so I might have to check this out.

  8. This sounds fab, I love a good highlight but have been stuck to the highlighter in the Sleek contour kit for ages now, and I can tell how much I love it as it seems to have gone down a lot quicker than the contour colour! I might just have to give this a try as I think powder sometimes looks more glittery than a 'natural glow'.
