My Highlight Is Brighter Than Your Future

Iconic London Illuminator Highlighter

I’m sure you all know by now just how much of a highlighter fanatic I am. Having tried so many from numerous brands I have a very large highlighter collection and I have so many that I love but I’m still always on the look out for the one. And I think I’ve finally found it in the form of Iconic London‘s Illuminator in Shine.

I first came across this highlighter whilst on a weekend away with one of my best friends who is always insanely glowing and I’ve never thought to ask what she uses. She uses shade Original, a champagne-toned shimmer that gives you a golden glow but was slightly too strong for me during the winter months when I am at my palest.

I was lucky enough that when I went to buy the highlighter it was on a special sale of £20 each, where it is usually £30. I know that that sounds really expensive but believe me it is so worth it, as the smallest drop goes such a long way and the bottle will last you a long time. I bought one bottle for myself and treated my friend to a new bottle of her shade.

Available in 4 shades, I decided to buy myself Shine, a pink based shimmer to add a pearly shine, perfect for those of us with a paler complexion. The other two options are Blush, a peachy antique-rose based shimmer that adds a warm rosy glow, and Glow, a terracotta toned shimmer that gives you a rich bronze glow.

You can add the shimmer to your foundation, primer or moisturiser, or use it alone for an intense glow. Personally I just it as a highlighter as I haven’t been able to work out the right amount to mix and so when I tried putting it into my foundation I look I was going to a fancy dress party as the glitter ball, but again it proves just how little of this you need and how far it goes.

I would advise using your fingers to apply this product and place a small amount on your hand before blending on your face unless you are willing to risk that ultra glow or if you are used to the product. Dot the illuminator on to your cheekbones, nose, whether you usually highlight and then tap the product to actually blend it in.

Iconic London currently have 25% off with the code ICONIC25 and have a Christmas Contour and Glow Gift Set for £69.99 which contains the Illuminator in Original alongside a Cream Contour Palette and a Rose Gold Concealer Brush.
