I love a good cream highlighter. I have used Benefit's High Beam in the past along with the Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator and have loved both so when I saw the Collection Speedy Highlighter in Pearly Sheen was part of one of the Boots 3 for 2 offers, I knew I had to give it a go. I bought this on a bit of a whim as I hadn't heard anything about it but I must admit I am so glad I did as it has become part of my daily routine. This product almost made it into my 2015 favourites but I thought that since I had only had it for a few months it wasn't really a favourite for 2015 but maybe it will make next years favourites.
The formula of this is a little different to any of the other cream highlighters I have ever used before because it isn't as creamy or soft as most, but I have never used a stick highlighter before. it seems when you first apply it that you are going to have to apply a lot of pressure to get any of the product on your face but you really don't. A little goes a long way as you only have to sweep this over your skin and it gives you this gorgeous sheen. I tend to apply this to most of the high points of my face like my cheekbones, cupids bow, and below my eyebrows.
It has pretty good lasting power too which is great as it means you don't have to reapply it throughout the day, which is great for me as I always forget to do touch-ups. The colour is also gorgeous and works really well for my paler skin as it is slightly pink toned and looks relatively natural so works really well for daytime use and you can obviously amp it up a bit if you want to for the evenings. It also isn't glittery, just slightly shimmery which I love as I hate highlighters with chunks of glitter.
I think this is probably going to be one of those products I keep repurchasing as it is such a good highlighter and it is only £3.99 which is an absolute bargain!
Have you ever tried this highlighter before?
