illamasqua gleam cream highligter in aurora - £20*
what's this... a beauty post? it's been a while since my last, but when i find a product i'm absolutely loving i just had to post about it! so i'm not going to lie, this is my first illamasqua product i've owned (don't hate me) and so many people had raved about them as a brand before and i have no idea why i had never picked anything up. however now it's a whole different kettle of fish. i've worn it everyday since i got it and couldn't wait to try it before photographing it either. you need the smallest amount and it's the most beautiful pearlescent. not too shiny to make you look oily and not too thick that it doesn't blend. i normally apply it by dabbing some on my finger and that is enough to go onto my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and my cupids bow. then i blend it in with my buffing brush or my fingers if i'm in a hurry. it's just a beautiful creamy consistency and has amazing staying power. no re-application needed here. i did think it was going to be hard to beat my trusty benefit watt's up, but i have to hold my white flag up and say there's a new highlighter sheriff in town. totally recommend!
