Iconic London Illuminator

I am totally obsessed with a good highlight and after getting the Jeffree Star highlighter I wasn’t sure I’d find something better because its my favourite highlighter ever!! Then I found the Iconic London Illuminator and my gosh the glow is real… I researched into a bit because its Β£29.99 and to be totally honest I took money out of my savings to buy it so I wanted to be sure I wasn’t wasting my money.

IMG_0376This highlight blew my expectations like seriously… if you love a bright glow… this is the one for you. The pigmentation is insane so I usually do three three small drops along my
cheek bone and blend it out with a beauty blender, and honestly that is all you need. Its so bright and glowy and I tend to set it with my Jeffree Star highlighter, but honestly I dont even think you need to set it, I just like being a bit extra with my highlight.

It comes in a small glass pot with a dropper and I can tell that this is going to last me aaaaages. This is one product that I would 100% recommend buying and I’mΒ hoping to try some more of their products soon!

Jefree Star Highlighter Review

I love highlight, like so so much, its honestly my favourite part of my make up, so I’ve been trying some different ones out, I used the MUA one for a while before switching between that and the one in the Sleek palette that comes with a bronzer and blush. Since I have tried some high end ones starting with the Urban Decay one which I wasn’t a huge fan off because it was literally just glitter and barely even showed up on your face.

Having brought the Jefree Star Liquid Lipsticks and having really loved the products, I decided to try the highlighter. I purchased it in Princess Cut because it really stood out to me and a lot of the reviews I read had used Princess Cut as well.

I was not disappointed by this at all. Its huge, like literally bigger than the palm of my hand by a bit (I have really small hands so I’d say its about palm size give or take a bit) and it is so so gorgeous!! I apply this with a Spectrum fan brush and I find that its really build able and isn’t overly pigmented. Its pigmented enough that fine brushed pick up product but not the point that its too much and you have to knock some off the brush before applying.

I personally like my highlight to be bright but not over the top like some people so somewhere in the middle. I find that with two layers you get a really gentle shine thats noticeable in light but not out of light, so perfect if you prefer a more subtle highlight. I tend to put four to five layers on because I like it to really glow when the light hits it. This is my go to highlight and I am in total love with this product. I’m looking at getting another one in another shade as well as some of this other products like the eye shadow palette.

Urban Decay Illuminated Highlighter

Sorry for not posting for a while, college has been a bit hectic with deadlines as well as preparing for a national grading for karate, but now its almost all sorted, here is a blog post! I’m going to attempt to do blogmas for you all so keep watching this space!

After seeing this on Twitter I wanted to buy it and see what it was like. I wanted to get the Anastasia Beverly Hills glow kit but it costs too much to import to the UK so I thought I would try this one first. It cost me Β£22 and took about a week to turn up in the post, and having read the reviews on it I was really excited to get it. I love a bit of good highlight and had been using a mix of Sleeks contour palette highlighter and a Β£4 MUA one. When this one turned up I was so excited to use it and couldn’t wait to do my make up the next morning. However I found the brush it came with didn’t pick up any product and since I don’t have a fan brush I ended up using my finger to apply it. Its also very glittery… to the point that my boyfriends face usually ends up covered in it too when I use it!!

I think despite the glittery side of it, it is a good highlighter, its subtle but I think when caught in the right light it could look really good, I personally prefer less glittery make up especially when it comes to highlighter, although I do think its a good product. You get a lot of product for the price and its very pigmented so it is definitely worth a try.
